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.

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!

      Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I completed this aberration Yesterday. The metal version 02838, of the Faceless Horror sculpted by Julie Guthrie. The number of eyes and teeth on this model is phenomenal. It is not an easy monster to deal with. However, I had a lot of fun painting it. I painted the inside of the mouth prior to assembling and I used Reaper MSP paints only.
       
      I started painting this aberration during Geoff Davis' class on painting eyes at Reaper Virtual Expo. This was the perfect mini to practice the techniques which have been explained. I also had a lot of fun painting all those toothy smiles and the skin in various colors.
       
      I wanted to depict the monster in its natural environment. So, after gluing the Gibbering mouther on a 50mm base, I simply added gravel and stone blocs to complete the scene. I finally added drooling saliva using translucent supports and Mod Podge.

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

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
       
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
       

       
      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
       

       
      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!

      Tere Reaperlased! 
      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur
       
      Julie Guthrie Hill Giant
       
      Julie Guthrie Centaurs
       
       
      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!
