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...

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

      This was the last mini I finished painting in 2019, I finished it around 10 pm on New Years Eve.  This is also my first Chibi, I painted her very close to the box art, but I didnt quite get the right shade of light blue, and her hair is more golden rather than pink in the art.  Still happy with her.

      I must admit that from all the Bones 4 core set minis, the Chibis were the ones voted "most likely to stay in their bags" when the KS shipment arrived, as superderformed/ chibi models like these are not really my cup of tea. They are way out of my comfort zone to paint, with all that skin, hair and large surfaces needing somewhat smooth transitions that I am not really any good at. But they have grown on me somewhat, especially since I decided to do them even more cartoony in style than I usually do. Themselves being very cartoony and all.
      They do look much smoother IRL when not magnified as in the photos.
