By Lord of the Dish Pit
I've been working on him off and on for a few months now. My goal was to get him as close as possible to the promotional art of him, (which Chrome is fighting me on posting, as my ref pics aren't on google drive...) which was an intimitating mix of red, brown and grey that reads as black.
The browns are Ebony Skin mixed with Stormy Gray in varying amounts, the lighter spots are a light drybrush of Buckskin Pale to represent dust.
Things have been a little rough for me lately and I haven't been painting, but last week my dear husband got some paints out and I started working on random stuff. This is the original Ellen Stone with no face, from the Vampire box. I'm pretty happy with how she came out.
Here's a very old Citadel mini from my collection - FS31 Magic Fountain.
I did this as kind of an exercise in creating a verdigris effect on the spouting beasties, which I'm quite happy with. There is some Vallejo "Still Water" in the base of the fountain but it's hard to see in the pics.
Comments are always welcome, thanks for looking!
So I entered this at reapercon in the painter's category, at the time I painted it I was happy-ish, now not so much. But, I can't really tell what I don't like. Rhonda Bender told me I was losing the mid-tone and I agree, however I'd still like to hear y'all's thoughts. C&C appreciated and very much wanted!
While my house was empty of family I actually finished two minis in a week, which for me is a record breaking effort because I'm REALLY slow. Neither of this is really quite this shiny in person, I have poor photography skills and my cell phone is the "best" camera in the house.
Stone - 91001 was painted for a teenage boy who at first wanted every piece of clothing, including the hat and boots, done in black. I convinced him to let me use some browns so it wouldn't look like a blob, and a tiny bit of red. I'm fairly happy with it, given in my opinion brown/black/brown/black is a challenge.
Male Thunderknight - 77304 was painted with a very specifically requested color scheme from my 6 year old Godson. I could have gotten more contrast in the red, and the eyes are so-so, but again, I'm fairly pleased with my progress.
