Seoni, Original Version - 60034

Recommended Posts

Awesome work! You want to know why it's taking so much longer? Take a look at how gorgeous this piece is, now go back and look at your older work. You'll see how much better it is. She's stunning.

Agreed, she looks fabulous.

The more techniques you pour into a model, and the more you care about each step, the longer and longer it takes.
Some people painting for high level competitions will spend 100-200 hours on a single piece when you consider conversion, basing, and painting.

I like your version of Seoni.  I'd pick her!

Wow! Really spectacular.

 

If I do a retrospective on my minis painting, it's been cyclical in terms of time spent per mini. When I started, I was all, "this goes here, then this goes there..." In other words, very deliberate. Then I started moving quickly as I grew accustomed to the basics. nce I started applying the "next level" techniques, I slowed waaaaay down. This kind of cycle has iterated several times, in keeping with my application of newly learned techniques.

 

Now, of course, I'm throwing off the theory simply because the techniques I'm focusing on have more to do with color and speed. I'm working on painting faster, so even though I'm using new techniques, I'm painting faster.

 

Of course, I get to paint less frequently, so it evens out on average.

 

Seoni really is amazing. The play of colors is lovely (I'll echo Corporea's inquiry about the blue).

It would be a privilege to play with that figure. She is a lovely harmony of blues and oranges.

Wow thanks guys. Yeah the discovering/practicing new techniques probably has a lot to do with the time.

 

The color is mostly Reapers seafoam blue mixed with a bit of teal. Reaper was nice enough to throw in the seafoam blue as a gift in my last order. For some reason I dont seem to see it in their store.

Ooh, you got one of the famed slightly off mixes they throw in as free samples. Sounds like you got a gorgeous one.

      Had to get it done! Featuring the Nolzur's Vardo, the bones War Dog (77422) as Schubert duVere; Ardellen the Ranger (03512) as Friedrich Johannes; Torin the Stealthy (02045) as Norvil Rogers;  Original Recipe Seoni (60034) as Theophany Black; and Hosilla (60172) as Valima Dincalli.

      The Saturday Morning Commedia presents: "Schubert duVere and the Riddling Engine." 

      "'Tis said by the magistrate that the common folk report the manor be haunted by spectres!"


       
      "Come then, comrades, let us venture forth severally, in search of clews!"


      "JESU! 'Tis chronicled here that a mountebank from this town devised an art to produce the likenesses of shades! By use of a magic lantern and smoke of a curious nature..."

       
      "Egads! A hidden door; certes no harm will befall from rushing in."

       
      "Z-z-zounds! I fear to venture in, Schubert, and yet we must! ...Would'st do it for a Schubert Scrap? ...Would'st do it for two?!"

       
      "RUH-ROH!"

       
      *catchy chase music plays* 

       
      "Doubtless here provides a place to snare the fiend with a subtle trap!"

       
       
      *montage*

       
      "ZOUNDS!" "Ruh-roh!"
      ""

      *further montage*
      "And now, friends, to unmask this scurrilous varlet! Let us see who the spectre really is!"

       
      "Jesu! Venerable JENKINS?!"
      "Ay, I aimed to frighten off the simple--and sell their land to a corn engrosser! At great profit! And HAD, were't not for ye meddlesome simpletons!"

       
      "We'll take Jenkins before the magistrate, youths. The barony thanks you for your assistance."


      "Well done all; another riddle solved! Twere Venerable Jenkins and his magic-lantern, coupled with masks and stilts."
      "Zounds! But--but what of the... the..."
      "RAR-Rulf?!" 
      "Witless Norvil, the Wer-wulf is but a peasant superstition!"

      So, after my initial pledge, I spent much of the past month following KS Reaper Bones V. While watching the marker grow painfully slow in the second week, while anxiously wondering if the last dragon would be unlocked, I was painting some minis in front of my PC. 
       
      Here the first one: Bonehenge Priestess. I tried an unconventional scheme, which I hope worked.

      Finished this figure over the weekend. Some parts I like quite a lot, but the blending is a bit weak and the casting of the left side of the face is poor. I like the sculpt a lot, and I've put the metal version (03547) into my wishlist for my next order. I think it might make a very nice piece to spend more time on.

      So here is my take on the famous Pathfinder Sorceress Seoni. I mostly kept to the original color scheme but wanted to find out how a green dress would look.
