Okay, I'll give it a few more Schuberts now...

 

 

 

Its always a strange mixture of awe and amazement or wanting to commit brush seppuku. But I was inspired to try painting a bit more detail into a face yesterday and though probably not close to two Schubert's, its a start. I shall continue watching this for the awesomeness and inspiration this gives off.

 

Two Schuberts would be twice as good as a standard Schubert.  At that point, I think you begin painting the actual spark of life into the miniatures and they become self-aware and able to move around and live in your house.  ::P:

 

 

Actually, it is impossible for Derek to ever get anything but 1 Schubert, being that a Schubert is a unit of measurement in commarision to what ever DKS mini you happen to be looking at.  Therefore, ALL of Derek's paintings rate exactly 1 Schubert.

Also, according to the Schubert Unified Theory of Painting, attaining 1 Schubert requires an infinity amount of talent and energy, thus it is impossible for any other mini to go even near 1 Schubert.

 

Tales of a 2 schubert mini are, alas, myth.

That is not actually 100% accurate; see at any given mini competition, Derek's entries are always 1 Schubert.  If anyone gets a higher prize, they actually can rate higher, like say a 1.2 Schubert for taking Gold Sophie BOS if DKS takes Silver.

This is a religious thing so I don't need to accept your arguments. LALALALALALAA...

 

Now, to sharp the knives to battle the hordes of Rich'es, and evil Flying Voodoo Monkeys...

I am adoring this colour scheme, those oranges really balance out the mini well and it draws some really nice focus.  The leather on the back of her outfit, so nicely shaded. *drools*

Simply amazing, as always, to see one of your pieces come together.

 

For the freehand on the half-skirt, is that a basecoat in red, and patterning in blue, or vice-versa? They both seem frustrating for different reasons, especially in that space under her legs.

DK, is this fig a blister or master?

 

**edit**

 

I also noticed that the weapon hands are swapped in the sculpt from what is pictured in the concept. Did you have a reason for The swap while you were sculpting? Just curious.

It's a complicated sculpt with lots of fiddly bits (and fjords!), but your colors calm it down and unify it.  I guess I should give some credit to Wayne Reynolds for the overall scheme, but I like the little changes.  All of the soft, warm colors are soothing.  I love what you did with the red scabbard on the back- really neat texture effect!  Beautiful!!

I don't really have any words to do justice to how awesome this is. So, I'll just /smile and /nod. You've really done Mr. Reynold's work justice. What color did you use for the base of the bandanna and the leggings?

I do not have a blistered copy of the fig... yet. :) I thought it was interesting that there was still areas of the master that needed repair.
