I don't know if anyone could achieve it on the Bones version due to soft details, but the metal version painted by Derek Schubert shows the areas that could be left as skin:

I like this close-up which shows, if you magnify enough, not all the blends look as smooth as you might guess.

Yes, you too can paint like a master painter in only *mumble* easy lessons. ::):

Thanks, I didn't look up the metal version of her. I think it'd be impossible to do exactly that on the bones version, just no way to see all those lines. Maybe like someone else mentioned I could have given her an exposed belly (that part was pretty obvious).

Love the eyes! Eyes are tough and you are making good progress on them!

 

Thanks they looked a little derpy to me, but after a couple tries I couldn't get them any better so gave up. Seems like sometimes the sculpt has the eyes at different heights. Maybe a better painter can make do but in my case if they are different heights the person usually ends up looking like cartoon birds should be spinning around their head.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
