Mary the Mermaid. by Glitterwolf Or " Underwater Greed"

Recommended Posts

I wanted to paint Mary for my oldest stepdaughter, she is into synchronised swimming and I believe part fish.

Since she is also a bit of a scrooge I added a bit of treasure.

 

Off to the start,

 

Sculpted a rock with millyput.

 

There will be more to follow.

She is a FANTASTIC mini with a WONDERFULLY expressive face. The base already looks TERRIFIC. Have FUN with the project.

Nice project!

Going to paint the mini with your step daughter's hair and eye color to personalize it?

That's the plan.

 

Hope I can pull it off.

Of course you can do it!

 

Just may have a larger self critical quotient.....

 

Maybe keep a pick of her near your painting area for a constant reference?  Especially if you have a good front face pic to use for highlights on the hair reference.

I find that doing 'natural' things like feathers, hair, etc becomes easier if I have a reference pic or 2...

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.

      I got the chance to paint up some miniatures for a project to bring the Modest Medusa webcomic into the minaitures world.
      These were all sculpted by Brian Phelps, and I think every one of them sculpts is super cute.  I'm going to get to do some more of them for backers, since the project is pretty nicely overfunded.
      Anyway, here are all of the very cute Medusa minis I painted for them.

      A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.
       
      I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?
       
      Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...
       
      During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.
       
      The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!
       
      So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

      Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.
      I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.
       
      Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?
       

      ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!

      This was my second diorama for ReaperCon but was the one not judged. The idea behind it was a Mousling adventuring party finding treasure but also finding that others were already there. I wish I had done more with it, such as adding more elements on the Mousling side and possibly a back drop but I was sadly running out of time and this was the entry that suffered for it.
