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).

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.

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
       
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
       

       
      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
       

       
      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!

      Laurana came to me in the old LTPK 2 as one of my very first minis in 2010 or so. This set even had the old Pro Paints in it, almost all of wich gave up on me a long time ago. Only Ruddy Flesh and the Copper Metallic Paint are left, both are still among my workhorse paints.
       
      While Laurana's companion Tsuko was painted up fairly quickly, I struggled with painting her forever. First the scroll would not come out right, and then the eyes turned out to be a major problem for me - you see, the pupils of the eyes are sculpted, so my usual strategies didn't work for her.
       
      But after years and years on my shelf of shame she's finally done! Once I got past the scroll and the eyes she was actually a joy to paint. Also, I really like the expressive pose.
       
      So here she is, c&c very welcome!

      This was an experiment with color. I decided to give the Limited Palette challenge a try last night.  The challenge is 3 colors, plus black and white. Specifically, the three colors must be a blue, green, and pink.  I chose cyan blue, gnoll pelt, and cactus flower.  I'm quite happy with how she came out, for a figure I wasn't terribly interested in to begin with. 
       

       

       

       
      Sorry, my camera could not handle a close-up of the face. 
       
      For anyone wondering about the red hair, a strange thing happens when you mix cactus flower and gnoll pelt....
       

       
      The base is from Secret Weapon.

      Recently finished this lovely mini from Dark Sword. Toyed with a few ideas but the winter theme ended up being the one that stuck. I wish I had had more time to spend on it but I am happy with how she turned out.

      Happy Halloween everyone, here are picture of a model I completed last night. 14285, Taletia the overlords Mage was sculpted by Gene Van Horne for the Warlord line.
      She's a tiefling enchantress NPC in the D&D campaign I'm running.
