Witcher-Inspired Succubi - First Freehanding!


Recommended Posts

That is an highly imaginative creation. It's probably the view from the back, but the patterns of the tattoos remind me of the markings Plains Tribes painted on their horses...imminent senility may be effecting this perspective as well. Be that as it may, your brushwork & eye for colors is OUTSTANDING. GREAT WORK!

I think I know what you mean ^_^ but eee, thank you. I'm glad they don't just look kind of... Weird, haha.

 

But <3 thank you ever so much!

They're wonderful! I envy your skintones.

 

<3 thank you =]

 

The brown haired one is just painted with Kislev Flesh, then washed in Seraphim Sepia, then more shadows added in with Nuln Oil, and a tiny bit of highlight picking is done with Flayed One Flesh. The black haired one was painted in Kislev, but then painted over pretty much entirely in Flayed One, then shadows were done in with more Nuln and Seraphim, but with way less Seraphim, and a couple of touches of Drakenhof Nightshade were put in near hair and stuff =]

Very pretty. I like the colors you chose especially their skintone. Now they need a pretty base.

 

Thank you ^_^ 

 I admit, I'm gently daunted by basing... Got some rough ideas, kind of, for these girls - just need my guru Drifter around and to pick up some supplies =] 

 

Cool.

 

Agree on the bases,. make them equally cool.

 

^_^

 

I'll try, I promise - just need some time =]

Nekkid Minis!

 

But yeah... they look really good hun. As others said, the skin tones are nice and have good levels of depth to them, and... damn your ability to freehand. Those tatoos look great. Very neat and regular. Not sure I could do that

We can get some basing stuff from Wayland next time you're down. And there's a beach nearby, so that's sand covered for doing dirt and gravel type stuff :P

 

Basing is easy enough though, just... I manage to get static flock everywhere when I do it, so look forward to that one

Thank you hun =] I have to admit, aside from my screw-up with the wash, I quite enjoyed doing the tats on these girls, so I'll definitely try and freehand more in future ^_^

 

And gdgd >=] Perhaps next time at yours, I will have got myself a mini case and I can bring some of my home minis up for basing, and we can have an epic session in which I learn to be less scared of another thing, lol. I'm just strangely fascinated by tiny grass, and I'm not sure why.

Even just a box would do. But yars, we can do that. I'll likely have a load more Reaper stuff to paint by then :P

      Hello everyone, this is the third and last of my 06132, Skeleton Swordsman sculpted by Kevin Williams. I added some group pictures too.

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Hello everyone! After painting my 16 Citadel skeletons, I wanted to try something different on this one. Here is my rendition of my first 06132, Skeleton with Two-Handed sword sculpted by Kevin Williams. The lightning on its sword's blade is freehand painting, I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Painting weekends are the best.  I'm trying to maximize as much as I can before fishing takes over my life and every free moment of the weekends.  Although, I can't complain about wanting to get outside after being trapped inside for the last 6 months.
       
      These little fellas got done over a 2 month period.  I primed them, then let them sit.  Then started a litte, didn't like what I did, then put them back down for another month.  Decided to spice it up and go for broke and just lay paint down on whatever came to mind.  Glad I did as it pushed me to do something different.
       
      BATTLE REPORT! 
       
      Wins:
      *  I ended up doing an Army Primer Plate Mail color - even though I put this in as a win, it did have a few complications.  The AP primer seems to make them tacky.  The longer it sits the more tacky it gets.  However, the win here is that it saved me a lot of time covering all the plate mail.  
      *  Got to test out what inks and paints do over AP primer in metal color.  I'm not sure the paint properties were all that great, but I definitely learned a lot in the process.
      *  The red on the broadsword knight was a test of shading and layering.  Not my best work, but it gets the idea across.
      *  I liked the brighter "knightly" colors used in Orange and red. 
      *  The checkering on the red/black knight was my favorite.  A real test of patience in laying the lines down and then filling in.  VERY CAREFULLY.  
      *  The Orange checker was less consistent, but good to test across a wider stretch to see if I could.  It worked, Iiked the result, but still more to improve upon next time.
      *  I really enjoyed practicing black lining with these two and trying to keep a steady hand separating the plates due to the primer just coating the whole thing one color.
       
      Misses:
      * Black ink does NOT coat well on AP primer.  It takes two good coats and ends up with this slight, for lack of a better way of describing it "crackling" appearance in the ink.  It's like it has a hard time bonding and drying evenly.  Learned not to do this again.
      *  I also learned that doing a checker pattern is easier with a dark undercoat and you don't notice mistakes as much.  The orange/black combo really stands out where there's a slight line out of place.  
      *  Silver/Gunmetal are still super difficult for me to do and finding a way to make them pop is challenging.  Any advice here is appreciated.  Just something to make the weapons and armor stand out.
       
      Here they are!
