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.

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...

I've got lots of pics on my Laptop, so yes, good idea.

 

Thx,

      Painted up an old mini I've had forever. Pretty much just slapped some GW contrast paints on him, with a few metallics (Vallejo Gunmetal and Chrome), and some Reaper Walnut Brown for the eyes.

      The Project

      This is our 12th Chibi miniatures project. Over the last 5 years at conventions, our Pony Chibi from our previous KickStarters are always the most popular figures and we love hearing the happy sounds of people seeing them for the first time in the display cases. Now as technology has greatly changed we wanted to add new ponies and accessories to the model line and now offer them to everyone as digital models to print at home for yourself!

      The Miniatures
      The digital models will be sent as STL one piece models within a month of the project ending. Models will be sent without supports (we will have a stretch goal to buy software and add supports to all the files).

      Due to Stretch Goal #1, the ponies will also be provided with STLs for the different components of the models, so you can use a free product like Meshmixer to mix and match parts from the different models to create your own ponies.

      In addition, if you want the models will be available as physical one piece 3-D prints as well in super high quality resin prints. Prints will be grey and will come with bases (as most are not free standing models)

      The miniatures will come in two sizes. The base pony figures will normally be 30mm tall to the top of the figurine's head and a couple large pony figures will normally be 50mm tall to the top of the figurine's head (the Nightmare and Kirin are large ponies)

      I've been painting up a lot of Starcadia Quest.
       
      It only seems fitting to start out with the Star Wars characters. For most of my Starcadia Quest, I went with a Borderlands style- with lots of black lining against bright colors and even black hard edging to create that Borderlandish look. I plan to convert a few Starcadians into Borderlands characters as well.
      Also, it just seemed right to start out with the Star Wars inspired characters.
