02413: Josephine Lucero - Before and After


Recommended Posts

Wow. I love how she turned out. I was honored to get to see her up close while you were working on her, and I must say your photo doesn't do her face or hair justice. It is so soft and pretty. I love your use of colors in her shadows and I am glad you settled on red for her gems they really do set her off quite well. 

 

Wonderful paint job especially considering how you managed to paint her during the con. Hopefully I didn't bother you too much while you were painting.

Thanks guys.  I'm really happy with how she came out as well, and as you say, the pictures aren't as good as the real thing (which seems to happen about 90 percent of the time).

 I have a set of Ral Partha beastmen skellies I've been meaning to do a then-and-now on - I dug a second set of them out of the dark recesses of the Citadel several years back.

I'm planning to paint them using the same Testors hobby enamels and the same Testors brushes as the originals as a skill challenge.

      Hello everyone, here's the result of my first attempt at sky and earth non metallic metal (SENMM). This Dark Heaven Legends model 02023, Tolzar Righteous Arm was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I started painting it during RVE (Reaper Virtual Expo). I painted the cape as I was following along Ian Markon's class on blending through Layering and Feathering. I then painted the freehand at the bottom of the cape during Brice Cocanour's Beginner Freehand class. I finally painted his armor, shield and hammer head using the SENMM technique. It's my first take at Sky and Earth Non Metallic Metal. I did my best to reflect the sunset on all metallic parts. Let me know what you think.

      Good afternoon all you reaperfiles! 
       
      So I haven't painted anything by Sandra Garrity for the longest of times, so I'm glad I started this little figure up, Ellana Dragonmistress, a female druid she sculpted long ago for Ral Partha. Beautiful little figure with her traditionally petite eyes.  The hardest part on this one, besides the eyes, was deciding on what colors I'd use.  As I listen to a lot of Anne Forester's Twitch channel over lunch and she talks so much about color theory, I always wonder if my colors match or not, but ultimately, without a color wheel to whip out, I end up guessing and hope it all ends up matching more or less. One day I'd like to figure out what colors totally clash 1000% and paint with those, but that is for some future miniature surely.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      One thing I really like about her is that besides her staff, she carries no weapons, which makes her a reasonably simple miniature to paint, but also gives you that feeling that she knows she's so bada$$ that she just doesn't need any weapons. I also really like her cowboy boots.  Why a blue dragon head?  No idea, it's what arrived to my brain.
       
      So anyhoos, enjoy!

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      Here is Lashana, bad-elf female warrior-wizard. I was inspired by a movie I saw recently.  Really enjoyed working with the red and orange colors.  I like how non-traditional and energizing the color scheme is.

      I painted her up as a fun project. Let me know what you think. 
       
      I am trying to improve my painting abilities.
       
      The purple marking on her thigh was supposed to be a skull tattoo, it didn't really work as well as I had hoped.
