A fellow player in a Reign of Winter game has been "tooling around"* with an unpainted strumpet miniature. I offered to paint it if she told me what she should look like, and so I was given an unpainted Bones mini and a quick watercolor sketch to work off of. This is the result, after a couple hours of work!

Overall, I'm pretty happy with her! She is not great, but I'm improving. This is also some of my better work on hair, ever. That Jessica Rich DVD from the kickstarter is starting to pay off.


 


However, I still did just a quick paint up (probably 2 hours...) and the quality needs to be higher. Things I know did not go as planned:


  • The blending on the dress was incredibly subtle--not sure what I was thinking here, exactly, but the contrast should be way higher.
  • The blending on the hair highlights looked so much better before it dried. Oops. So mental note: esp. for a display piece, let it dry and then really check it out before you seal it. The transitions are way too abrupt as it stands.
  • General smoothness of blending everywhere could be improved.
  • Still on broccoli base. Sad.

Any additional C&C? Beyond the paint scheme, I suppose, since I'm working with a player's desired colors, anyway.

Note: this is a repost! It looks like three posts, two of which I finished writing, all ended up with the same post ID, which caused all sorts of mayhem. Attachments only worked on one of these posts at a time and it looks like all of the tags got thrown together. This should fix the problem...

      Finally varnished and ready for the table: Sepp, Brunhilde and Urs.
       
      I painted them up to kick off my Rangers of Shadow Deep Project. More infos and a bit of backstory can be found in this WIP.
       
      Those three are my first attempt at OSL. Luckily, I did not have to make this journey alone: I'd like to thank @Geoff Davis for a great class at RVU and an even better private lesson via zoom.
       
      Enjoy, C&C very welcome!

      Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts.
      I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      the polka dots took forever. 
      I am happier with how the face came out than the free-hand.

      A lovely little sculpt by Bob Ridolfi, she was part of our swag from  Reapercon 2020.  I added the extra gosling on the base, as well as a couple extra golden eggs. 
       

       

       
      I thought they looked more like potatoes than eggs in this shot, though. :)
