So, I was trying to get all of the core iconic characters for Pathfinder as I often GM at cons and use the pregens for new players.  However, I could not find Kyra in Bones without paying about 4x her usual cost on the bay.  Therefore, I got creative.  I got a copy of the Isabeau Laroche mini and cut away her sword and shield and then cut her right hand off and turned it over. 

I put some armature wire in place for her scimitar and holy symbol, then went to town with some Green Stuff.  A speed paint later, I had a fairly passable Kyra.

Hope you enjoy her as much as I do!

I'll probably touch up a bit later as I see some bad paint spots in the pictures and she's just beggin for some decent dry brushing, but good enough for the con I'm GMing this weekend :=)

Wow, that's a good Kyra conversion! It certainly captures the essence of the original.

Thanks, Chris! I was really happy with how she turned out. She deserves a better go-round with the painting, though.

 

Excellent proxy!! Colors so far match quite nicely to the original as well. I was lucky enough to pick up the "starter" pack, Paizo made for the module that had the primary classes along with the succubus. Glad I did, fantastic prepaint.

 

Also fantastic holy symbol as well. Did you sculpt that part?

Thank you, everyone, for the kind words and encouragement!

 

@haldir-Yes, I did sculpt the holy symbol as well as the headwrap, pin thing for the cloak, the scimitar, and the front of her left forearm as it was basically nonexistent after removing the shield.

 

@vegascat and malefactus-Yes, better painting will be required at some point. Whenever that does happen (and perhaps some proper basing), I'll post her in the show off thread.

      I started Rimeblast a couple weeks ago.  She's the first thing I've painted in some time.  It won't be anything special (I've got to learn how to up my game one of these days), but it's a start.
       
      This won't be a real in-depth thread, just the "end of the night" update after a painting session.
       

       
      Well, that was where I started.  I knew that the "white" dragon wouldn't be white.  It's not the way things are in the world where Rimeblast dwells.  But, this is the Ocean Colors triad (specifically Deep Ocean), which isn't just blue enough.  
       
      So, after a couple weeks of unhappy-back-of-the-mind pondering I pull out the paints again.  This is where I am now.
       

       
      This is better.  This is Sky Blue with little bits of Deep Ocean peaking through.  I'm "OK" with that.  It gives some variation so she's not (quite) all the same shade.  I'm thinking I'm going to take a heavy drybrush of Frosty Blue, and then a lighter drybrush of Ghost White, or even Sparkling Snow, to finish the scales. 
       
      The scutes (belly scales) have received a coat of Foggy Grey which is, I've discovered, very close to the shade of Vallejo grey primer already on it.  I'll likely be using Pure White and Sparkling Snow to finish those up--assuming I don't go back and redo them in Rainy Grey.  I'm afraid the countershading will be a little too "bright" if I leave them at "Foggy."
       
      I'm still not sure where I'm going to take the spinal ridge, crest, and wings.  The bones/supports in the wings bug me a bit.  I keep thinking that there should only be three or four support "fingers" (like a bat), and there a lot more there.  Pardon me while I over-analyze fantasy creature morphology.  
       
      Thanks for dropping by!

      OMG what's with me and drow nowadays.... this one I tried to stay true to the pathfinder fanart

      So when I unpacked this Big Boi in 2017  I thought he would look really cool without wings.  but I'm it will be a lot of careful work to carve off the joins and resculpt him,  I just don't think I'm ready.  In February I did the scales for my verocthulu conversion, and thought "I could have done that better."
      So this is better.  
       
      This Dragon will be the colors or earth.   Burnt Umber base, and a hide scattered with Burnt Sienna, Tusk Ivory, and Leather Brown with ochre and NNM gold colors on the belly. 
      perhaps some cool gray or blue washes in the shadows.   The scales will be individually shaded, and the hide below staying the color of brown liner, or umber in the well lit areas. 
       
      So far its been about 4 hrs of work in sculpting, cleaning, gluing and mold line removal.
      it took 45 min just to cover him in brown liner.  He is a really big dragon, and I have no idea how long this is going to take. 
       
      but im getting a little obesessed - I don't want to schedule a meeting or go grocery shopping, I want to add more paint... 
      this feels like how I ended up with a dragon named Insomnia - who was painted almost entirely between 10pm and 7 am.   I kept waking up with new color ideas. 
      Or the DDS2 dragon who I spent 2-4 hours a day painting for a solid week, and another hour a night for the week after.  
       
      The last picture is my inspiration for the scale colors - the eyes will be much simpler than this.

      Good day everyone, I will share here my progression on a project I wish to do for a long time. I already know all the parts I'll be using for this diorama. Starting with the carefree 03082 Ingrid sculpted by Derek Schubert (I'm converting her as a svirfneblin prospector), accompanied by her faithful familiar the 14453 hunting cat sculpted by Sandra Garrity. They are taken as prey by a 03602 stone lurker sculpted by Kevin Williams. I will also add a 02018 bat from the familiar pack 1 hanging somewhere on the rock wall. I already worked on Ingrid. I removed the base and give her a pickaxe. I made her tool with a paperclip and a piece of scrap metal. This all-project idea started with the gemstone she’s holding in her left hand.
