I take one look at that facial expression, and I hear Austin Powers' voice in the back of my head, saying, "Do I make you [rhymes with tawny], baby?"

Hee, hee. Splendid work!

Love her. Excellent work on the tartan, I like how you defined it. It's exactly opposite the way I do tartans (painting the squares instead of the lines). I may have to try it.

Some questions; Why didn't you straighten the sword before starting?  Is this your normal painting style or were you trying something new? It looks good but there is a ton of paint on it.  Is it a style choice?  What would you say you learned about painting plaid?

 

I still haven't figured out a solid technique for plaid but have been going kind of the opposite way as you did.  I have been putting a light off-color base (light tan or off-white) and then working the color stripes in very watered down colors so they show through each other.  But then I am limited to lighter plaids.  If I start with a color base and color stripes it just looks like a clown.

A BONNY LOOKING Lass...the strawberry blond hair adds to the Scottish flavor & makes the mini for moi. GREAT WORK!

I didn't get the expansion that had her in it, and I regret it now.

Thanks a LOT Pingo! 😉

 

But she's fantastic! I always enjoy your unconventional style!

Yes, the cape is ludicrously busy.

The sword was really soft and bendy. It didn't show much tendency to stay in place anyway, so I moved it around to paint the figure. The player it's for at least is not too upset about that.

 

I am always trying something new. Apparently I have a recognizable painting style, but I am not sure what of it I would call normal.

 

Curious what you mean by "a ton of paint." If you feel I have issues with paint thickness, I can work on that. If it's the ludicrous amount of colors and paint thrown onto the plaid cape, well, that's deliberate. If you mean the sword itself, I am still figuring out the nuances of metallics on a micro scale.

 

Your plaid technique sounds very rational. This one was a little more wild and seat of the pants. It *is* very difficult to keep plaids from looking clownlike.

      She got a base from the Artisan Guild Oni set.
      I painted her eyes red, not sure if it's visible.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
       
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
       
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
       
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.

      It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here.
       

       
      I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back.  TMM was used on the metal.
