Looks good. I especially like your work on her eyes as well as the wings. I agree that some tinting on the wings would spice things up.

Only other suggestions I have would maybe be doing some hilighting of the hair. If you have done some then it's just not showing up in the photos.

Plus I think the base could use just a tiny bit of colour. Army Painter makes some grass tufts with various colours of "flowers" that I think would look good. Especially with the faery motif.

Thanks! I did high light the hair, seems that yellow is difficult to see as it is only drybrushed.... Kind of scared to try to paint individual strands!

As for the flowers on the base, Escalla is written as very much the tom boy. I doubt that she would be walking through feilds of flowers for the heck of it.... ^_^

 Agreed... I'd personally try to push the highlights and shadows further.

Thanks MJ! I didn't want her clothes to go grey on me, which was why I didn't go there, and the shadows there are already black. Should I add some dark blue to the shadows in her clothes? And should I try to wet palette the skin shadows.

You can use gray to highlight black and still have it look black. As long as 75% of the area is still black, the eye will read the object as being black.

Can you wet palette black? The base color is Vallejo Black-Grey shade is Black, High light is Black Grey + White 5/1...

OK, Breathe deeply....

 

OKAY, I tried to bring up the highlights on her Clothes and hair, not sure how good I did at it, but putting up some pics for C&C.

Am I doing this right?

I can see the hilights on her clothes, still can't see the hair hilights well in the photos though.

 

How are you lighting the mini?

I have 3 pieces of foam board taped together to form a horseshoe shape, with light grey printer paper taped to the inside. 3 100 watt lights, 1 from 45 degrees left, 1 from 45 degrees right and 1 overhead. Figures stand on a box wrapped with the grey paper.

When I did the next hi light on her hair, I just dry brushed another layer of the brightest yellow I have. I did not add any white there. Do I need to? Won't that start to make the hair look 'off'?

Thanks for the comments!

George

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a lovely nymph I just completed. I started the skin with a beige base coat and green shadows. Then glazed successive layers of green and beige.
      This Dark Heaven Legends model 02741, Nymph sculpted by Werner Klocke and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      Hi guys.  Here is my painted Bones Succubus.  Parts of her are a hot mess but I am so happy with her!!  I pushed through sone issues I was having and there are so many spots I learned on her.  For starters she has the first makeup I ever put on a mini.  She has eyeshadow, blush, lipstick complete with little white light dot on her lower lip for fun and a beauty mark!  I started with slightly less pronounced makeup but then she's a succubus, she would have exaggerated makeup I think.  The unfortunate thing about her is her right cheek has quite an indent and then a mold line a little past that.  I disguised the mold line by giving her a "lady sideburn" to match the one sculpted on the other side but there's nothing I can do about the indent.  Then her wings, for the first time I was able to get more of a variation in the colouring which I tried with my bat demon and ended up covering because I didn't like it.  Her dress could have used a bit more but I was done and I'm still working on the layering/highlighting in general.  One thing that still bothers me is the rough look of my paint jobs when I'm done.  I paint with a wet palette so thinning isn't an issue I don't think and don't put coats on top of drying paints so that's not causing it.  Hope everyone likes her as much as I do.  I even have a second copy of her to do later in my painting journey.

      Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later...  I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!
       

       
      At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice.  Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
       
      Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it.  Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point
