Rasia Bladedancer

Recommended Posts

I picked Rasia Bladedancer up in my last order.  I decided rather than add her to my waiting to be painted list I should start her up.  I wanted to try out a new skin tone, so I'm going with the olive skin.  Got her cleaned up and skin base coated when I noticed several lines I missed.  I painted up her eyes, not a fan of the eyelid sculpted on them.  Someday I should get back to practicing sculpting so I can sculpt eyes over something like these.

 

Here is where she stands at the moment.

Painted up part of her skin today.  Kinda a slicker day for me.  I used the olive skin shadow to shade the skin.  I then Highlighted with olive skin highlight.  From there I decided it needed to go a bit higher in the contrast so I mixed in some Fair skin highlight to the olive skin highlight.  I think the face came out.  Need to finish up the rest of the skin tomorrow.  I'm still trying to decide on the color of her clothes.

I find the sculpt a bit weird, with crazy abs, but no arm muscles?

Maybe this seems weird to focus on such a small detail, but the right knee is just so totally nailed.

Yeah, I felt the ads are a bit much.  I've yet to paint up the arms so I'll wait to adjust abs till after then.

Y'know, the right bit of highlight and shading might punch up her biceps to match her abs...

Skin got some more work today.  Arms, hands, and breast were painted up.  I then decided to bring up the shadows on the stomach.  I like the effect better now.  I then decided, after looking closer at the mini, that I need to paint up the shawl before I work on the hair, as she has part of her shawl recessed in her.  So for some reason Scale 75's Caribbean Blue stood out to me.  Not one to fight my inspiration when painting any more than necessary, I painted up a bit to test the way the color looks.

 

Here how she looks at the moment:

It's a Dennis Mize. His work was kind of idiosyncratic but recognizable in many ways. I have a Reaper elf bard by him with a very similar look.

That was something I hadn't put together.  She does look a lot like Tyden I had painted up from LTPK 3 or 4.

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him

      Here is my take on the Dance of Death sculpt from the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
       

       

       
      I really enjoyed this one,  finishing it up this last winter. I saw someone mention somewhere online that they were bummed that the heads didn't exactly line up, but I found it reminiscent of dogs when they are snarling while looking sidelong at each other.
       
      Apologies for the scratches and discolorations on the background. I've been meaning to pick up some black cloth to improve that.
       
      Thanks for taking a look!

      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!

      I haven't been painting much Reaper lately, but painted up this beastie for Jimmy The Brush's July community challenge.
