I watched your WIP on this one and I love your color choices. The teal looks suburb with excellent blending. I love her hair and skin too. I will be looking for this one and the Con, and of course I hope to meet you too.

Looks fantastic!  I was watching your WIP on this one too.  It reminds me of how much detail we keep in our mind's eye for these projects in this hobby.  Your final product turned out awesome!  I particularly enjoy the deeper purplish blues and their contrast with the lighter blues that you have highlighted so well to a white.  The face and hair came out very well and you have a very good "fair" skin tone.  When I try for a fair skin tone, it often turns out chalky.

 

What were your paint formulas for the red-orange hair?

For the hair I used RMS red hair triad w/ a highlight higher using RMS sun yellow.

 

As for chalky paint use less paint on your brush and maybe a little matt medium. Hope this helps.

So shiny and bright!  She looks like a painted illustration, reminding me of one of those masters of the brilliance of gouache and watercolor.

I thought I'd post one of my RCon entry.  Here is Darksword Miniature's Female Mage with a staff.

 

Also remember to enter her into the DSM contest, they are running one that gives winners some store credit!

Great work on a lovely model, how did you make the base?

Doh, completely forgot to post that in my wip. I used a cork from a wine bottle. Scrapped the edges to break up the uniformity. Then glued down tuft of grass followed by some sand. Paint to color.

      This is Tiriel from Hasslefree Miniatures that I painted in TMM. She was a much needed fun figure to help keep my motivation going as I work on other larger projects as I tend to loose focus if I work on something too long with out finishing.

      Good evening gents and gentettes,
       
      So finally got another one finished this afternoon. I was working on him for a while now and got done painting him two nights ago, let him cure, got his base attached last night, and then this afternoon on my lunch break (working from home for the foreseeable future) got his grass stuck on and photos taken.
       
      So with this elf, I didn't want to just do him in either browns or greens, so went with yellows and oranges with some leathery colors instead.  I also did his bow thinking of more of an ivory bow, so off white. There were a few other things I could have done with him, but calling him done. This one is a classic Ral Partha Julie Guthrie figure from her range "All Things Dark and Dangerous", from back in the eighties.  Most of them you can still end up getting still from Iron Wind, so that is a plus. Anyways, here he is, hope you like him!

      Sculpted by Patrick Keith.  Having fun experimenting with yellow shading and GW Contrast paints.  No basing yet, all my stuff is packed.

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      Hello guys,
       
      It's been a while since I posted a mini, as I've been sick, been on a business trip, and just generally busy, but here is a figure I just completed last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from "All Things Dark and Dangerous" back in the eighties:
       

       
      Upon retrospect I'm wondering if I should have given her eyebrows, don't know if without looks very unnatural?
       
      In any case, here's the "original" set of figures, with the delightful ladies that came in the original blister pack:
       

       
      Hope you enjoy!
