Finished up the back of the shawl, yesterday.  Forgot to photo it.  Well, I plan to get some more painting in so I post it later.  I blocked in my tentative color for the belt & boots.  I also put down a yellow coat for the area I plan to paint up gold.  And I also put down a base coat for the wood of the staff.  The plan is to paint the top of the staff as crystal (most likely blue).

you are doing a fantastic job here. Something is bothering me about the skin and i can't quite figure it out. Its a minor little thing. I think its the lack of a warm tone to warm up the tone just up from the shade. I don't know if i would but a super thin glaze of red or purple to pull together the shadow and the mid tone i think would make her feel more lively. However, i would be scared to screw it up at this point.

@Dontfear - Ok I'll give your ideas a try when I get back to the skin. Thanks.


More work today and yesterday on the Mage.  I highlighted and shadowed the darker blue.  I wasnt sure how it would read next to the gold.  So I decided to paint up the belt and place the highlights of the gold on the rest..  Overall I liked how the gold turned out.  I think I need to tweak the highlighting of the blue.


Here is a shot of my progress:



Oh and here is a shot of the back of the shawl:

I'm back to work of the mage.  Got the hair 90% done, though I only took a shot of her from the back.  Little touch up's left (if I feel up to it).  This week end will be to finish the skin (and the gold time and patience permitting).  Need to kick it into gear to get her finished for RCon.


Here we go again:

I think I'm calling the her basically done, minus the few touch ups I see.  I'm going with a simple base I think, to give m time to (hopefully) finish my RBG female dwarf.  The photo washes out the flesh tones, but I like the way she look in person.


Here is where she stands right now.

      So here's another from the last year.   I was unmotivated at first because the facial detail was a bit lacking but I like the way it turned out.

      So I needed an NPC - and this Bones V townsfolk called to me as a low level mage. He is supposed to be a ship's mage, helping dvinine weather and sea creatures, so I choose blue and then tried freehand silver symbols. My lack of freehand skill and patience quickly showed up! But he's good for the table and was done in time to use. He looks a bit worried - which fits the character

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.
