Good job, Jay! I really like the base and the color palette you chose for her. My only critique is that the skin looks a bit rough in places, not sure if that's from dried paint pebbling on you or if she's just got some roughness to her cast.

She looks good man.  I want to know where those flowers came from though.  Do tell!

 

Likewise on the skin--glad to hear any tricks to avoid that (though last time it was because I didn't clean the dust off them well enough to prime..).

There is a rough granularity to the blade casting, and I had to play with it A LOT to get it untwisted, and to look somewhat natural.

I thought about filing it, but was way to soft to attempt, and risk a snap off ::(:

Flowers came from Scenic Express...Chain your wallet before you go looking for the site.. $$$ goes zing when you look at catalog.

I use my flesh tones in a 50/50 (paint/water) mix.  I apply MANY coats to ensure that they are smooth.

In this case, the mini was pitted, and nubby, so that over rode any care that I have taken.

I hope that you scrub your mini's with a tooth brush and soap before priming them...

always a smart move !

Thank You Malefactus !!!

You made me smile with your comment.

I just varnished the miniature, and that covered over a lot of the roughness of the casting.

I also wanted to comment on the leg armor.

I painted it first with a coat of Grey Gunmetal, let that dry.

then came back over it with a very watered down light green (to fill in the plains).

I then came back over with a 50/50 coat of old gold on the design.

Then a final coat of 5050 gold as a highlight.

I really like the effect of that on the armor. (I did use a coating of brown liner on it to begin with).

She's a cute little thing. I like her brassy armor and the pretty flowered base.

I really like her hair. Very pretty colors go well with the colors on her base.

Thanks Pochi;

Doing her hair was a lot of fun, I've recently started to appreciate doing red hair,

I was planning on the flower base, so I was looking at colors that would react to the red and purple phlox base !

I really worked on that armor Pingo, and so glad you picked up on it.

The base was a hoot to do.

(oh, and I decided to add some new paint trays (acrylic nail polish holders), made me get the basing done, so I could clean up the mess).
