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...

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!!

      He was a leftover from a group of pathfinder mini's I primed but forgot to finish from my last posting.

      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.

      Hello again, this one is Darkblade, a Wizkids Pathfinder Deep Cuts 72596, Human Male Fighter. Darkblade is also a the character of one of the players of our D&D group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? 
       
      I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been enjoying seeing the pics shared here. So here is to a year of painting more minis and bringing them to Texas in 2022. 
       
      Now without further ado, Akiko.
