Awesome! I might be a little bit biased because I'm a great fan of the Mars series :D No idea who might she be though, I was thinking John Carter's daughter but doesn't seem right

 

Also, could you elaborate on "the “butt-toothed vampire†thing"? I'm not familiar with the phenomenon

There is something of the old original "Star Trek" alien lady about her. This is cute with understated humor.

She doesn't call it that, but it's something I learned from Jessica Rich's "How to paint beautiful women" class (which goes by a different name at other conventions).

 

Basically, the buttocks and upper thigh should always be highlighted, even if it would actually be in shadow. It just looks right, even if it's a little bit wrong. The "vampire" part is a joke: when you highlight triangular areas on the thighs, they look like fangs.

I think Tin Man miniatures captured the pulp sci-fi feel quite well - sure she's over-the-top, but it's cool-looking so who care?

 

Next up from them will probably be either a green martian or a male red martian.

      Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter.
       
      Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

      It took me ages to choose a colour scheme for the Valkeeri Leader. I eventually decided on Army Painter Shining Silver to go with the whole pulp scifi theme, and VGC Warlock Purple because why not. I was worried the silver bits of her uniform would look like armour instead of metallic cloth but I think it's turned out OK. For once I managed to get her eyes to a decent standard and her hair came out looking good too. Her gun is VMC Brass, toned down with VGC Sepia Wash and Liquitex matte varnish. Her lips are a tiny dab of VMC Brown Rose.
       
      I forgot about her cape until I was finished with her, so it got a few thin coats of Warlock Purple and then began the fun and games of gluing it to the figure. Four attempts later I got it in what I hope is the right position and touched up the purple.

      I painted Devil Girl's clothing in Vallejo Black and thought, "God, that's boring". So I added 1/3 Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue to the black and redid her coat. Adding the blue makes the black much richer, and I washed the black over with Army Painter Blue Tone. Her skin was done with Vallejo Flat Red, Red and Vermillion. Her hair is black and drybrushed with Vallejo Royal Purple. The lava is Liquitex Modelling Paste and the slabs are just plasticard. Her eyes took FOREVER to get right, which was frustrating as hell as they're just yellow with a thin black line.
       
      The paint scheme and base are shamelessly ripped off this one by @TheOldGuard, although he/she can do OSL and I can't (and wasn't even going to attempt it).

      I would like to try airbrushing different sets of skin tones onto multiple copies (5+)  of the same female figure as practice and as a reference for other models. Anyone recommend a Bones fig that is large enough to have quite a bit of exposed skin, but cheap enough that lots of copies wouldn't set me back too much. Yaphima (sure I spelled it wrong) the Frost giant comes to mind first, but looking for other options

      Not as happy with Candy as I was with Sugar, but she was fun to paint. She does have pupils in her eyes, honest.
       
      I've just noticed a strip of white on the top of her left thigh. Great.
