Here is another miniature I plan to try to finish up for RCon.

I struggle on with the progress.  As I said above freckles were a bust.  I painted the eyes and they came out ok.  It wasn't till afterwards that I realized I should have flicked the dark shadow color on with a small brush to try for the effect.  But I didn't want to risk ruining my eyes.  So i just went highlighted and shadowed the face.  Then to give it some more life, I base coated the hair.

 

Here are the results:

And a shot from the back since I realized I hadn't given one yet.

If I get some more painting time today I'll try to get the rest of the skin finished.

Ooooo, red hair with freckles?  I'll be watching! 

Ugh, freckles were a bust, at least for the moment.  None of my brushes were able to make the dots small enough.

 

If you find a way to make freckles work, be sure to share it.  I saw one post of freckles that looked awesome http://www.coolminiornot.com/374067?browseid=11655430, but it is for a 1/6th scale.  I don't know how to get it to work at 28mm.

Wow, that red hair and the blue eyes are looking great! The skin tones are really taking shape and you did just an outstanding job on her face with the placement of highlights, shadows, and that lipstick. She's going to be awesome!

That was an awsome link. I'm not sure I how one would go about doing that either at 28mm.

Thanks, I hope the rest of the skin comes out this well.

      I painted her up as a fun project. Let me know what you think. 
       
      I am trying to improve my painting abilities.
       
      The purple marking on her thigh was supposed to be a skull tattoo, it didn't really work as well as I had hoped.

      Her face is way lighter in real life. In the pics she looks like she's got stubble...

      Such a fun idea for a mini!
      But then you have to paint all the dragon scales.
      I was going for a more Asian skin tone.  I tried to speed through this one since her sword was so bent.

      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....
