This is Julie Guthrie's sea hag, part of the core set of the Reaper Bones II Kickstarter.

 

To begin with, I cleaned up  the flash some, scrubbed her with soap and warm water, and primed her with Reaper's Brown Liner.  When that had dried nicely I painted up her flesh with a pale sky blue and layered first a brick red color, then a pale yellow on her base for sand color.

I've decided to give her a bright red dress.

 

I started by mixing a deep opaque rose pink, since otherwise trying to paint mostly transparent red straight on her would be an exercise in frustration.

I'm leaving the hanging tatters on her right arm because to my eye they look like seaweed, and I like the idea of green seaweed and red dress rags mingling at the bottom.  This is also when I noticed that she has a small octopus clinging to her left arm. Cute!

 

This is what the dress looks like with a true red glazed over the rose pink.

I painted some assorted greens where I wanted the kelp to be.

 

I noticed that not only does she have a tiny octopus on her left arm, she has an even tinier crab on her right arm!

Someone recently commented how my figures look awful in the midst of being painted and then pull together at the end.  I had to laugh, because this figure is so far a really good illustration of the first part of that.

I felt her coloration was harsh and flat, so I mixed up a transparent purple out of Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta and washed it all over her and where her shadow would be.

I started to paint up her face and some of the barnacles on her.

I refined the shading with layers of transparent purple shadows and pale blue highlights, some whites on the barnacles and things.

The sculptor (Julie Guthrie) must have had fun adding tiny bits of sea life.  The last things I did were base coats on a tiny octopus (purple), crab (pink), and starfish (pale green).

Had some pale vermilion, so I softly brushed it on to highlight the red dress and added some to the crab.

To be honest, a lot of how this figure has gone has been based on whatever colors I happen to have mixed for other figures and this one is sort of lying around.  It is accumulating a paint job more than being painted, I think.

Whatever works to get them done!

 

I have that habit as well, if a mini I am working on needs a color I am using....

Paint On!

I especially love the diagram you did, pointing out where all the hidden details are.  That will be very helpful for the rest of us when we try to paint our sea hags.  ^_^

 

I also love how the eyes are so sharp and well defined.  It makes them stand out amongst the more fluid details of the seaweed and dress.  Very appropriate for the monster personality as well.

I took a rich transparent Quinacridone Crimson and glazed over the Sea Hag's dress.  It pulls the red colors of the dress together and makes them really deep and intense.

I washed some dark transparent brown (Raw Umber) over her sea critters and dress.

Then I painted lavender highlights on her octopus.

      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.

      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!

      This is the last mini finished in December 2020, mini number 79 of the year.  I hit 97 mini if I count large minis as 2 each.  Not too shabby, my goal was to finish 50.
       
      So this mini is the Female Halfling II from the Julie Guthrie series 2 from Grenadier (SKU 8145).  She is the smallest mini I have painted in a long time, so I am super happy with her face.
