02391: Kimberlee the Fair

Recommended Posts

Great job! The floorboards are very convincing, if you'd not have said it, I'd have thought they were part of sculpted basing.

Thanks, ub3r! They were a spur of the minute painting decision. I also was checking to see if my go-to brush could keep it's point consistently for freehand work. (The result: No.  :down: It has been babied, but to no avail. It is being relegated. Oh, that means I can get a new brush!  ::D:)

I really love the color scheme you chose for her, she looks like she would fit in nicely with the new Christmas themed characters.  ^_^  Blond hair is hard to pull off convincingly, and you did an amazing job!  (Some of us would love to know what colors you used!!)

Wow, thanks! If I remember correctly, I mostly used the blonde hair triad, but went for a more reddish blonde to keep with her overall color palette. I neglected my painting notebook for Kimberlee, so this is my (faulty) memory at play.

 

I based her hair with Blonde Hair, then added a wash of Chestnut Gold to tone it down a bit and to get in the shadows between the strands. The slight reddish shift that the Chestnut Gold provides kept the hair from getting too yellow. I then added the highlights with Creamy Ivory. Finally, I shaded where the waves curved under using Blonde Shadow, then added a final highlight with Blonde Highlight (possibly with some creamy ivory mixed in).

 

Since her hair is pulled back into a high pony tail that falls over the rest of her hair, I used Chestnut Brown diluted to a glaze consistency to provide additional shading between the pony tail and the pulled-back sides, and where I needed a deep shadow.

 

The sculpt really made it easier to decide where to highlight and where to shade. Ms. Garrity did a wonderful job!

      Trying to get back into painting and out of my comfort zone, here is Silverhorn:

       
      Nothing wild really, but it was a good exercise in painting up from gray to white. Not perfect but he turned out much better than anticipated, so I’m calling this one a win.

      I took this idea directly from DMGInfo and put a couple small twists to it based on what my home game players might like. Plus, I think they make pretty cool props for a dungeon that might be a library or wizard tower or whatever. It's an experiment, so the execution is a little sloppy on some of them, but I learned a lot so if I ever decide to do a new set (which I likely will) I can take what I learned to make a much better finished product. 
       
      I started with craft sticks(popsicle sticks) cut into 1cm x 7mm pieces and used a cereal box for the book covers. On some of them, I cut up bits of the cereal box to add dimension. Superglue to keep it all together. 

       

       

       

       
      In hindsight the cereal box I used was pretty cheap and wanted to warp and split into layers. Next time I may use a thin chipboard, or card stock.
       
       
       

       
      Here they are all primed up, ready for paint. 
       

       

      Some of the designs are just decorative, while others are leather straps and buckles that bind the whole book, metallic corners to help "protect" the covers' corners, etc.

       
      I apologize for the dreadful lighting on these. I used the same acrylic paints I use on my minis. Next time I'll use craft paint because craft paints are thicker and go on thicker, which you definitely want. Spent a lot of time waiting for layers to dry. 
       
      I used metallics for the raised bits on the finished ones above and I am pretty happy with the first set. 
       
      The second set will have some more ambitious designs such as reptile scale book covers and:

       

      an eye sculpted out of green stuff! The more I use it, the more I love it. It allows me to add all sorts of little details to things as well as fill gaps.
       
       
      I'll post the finished shots once I get the last of them painted up. 
       
      I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired to craft your own props for your dungeons/games. Happy Crafting!

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Saw about this via Black Magic Craft.
      31 Euro shipping for rest of the world will probably rule me out. I'm not sure I can find value in 85 euro all in for books and templates. That's a lot of supplies (I dont have room for).
