Bombshell Babes 10037 - Serina the Steampunk Mermaid

Recommended Posts

Looking forwards to it! Planning anything special for the base?

Sand, ripples, light passing through waves, maybe a few starfish.

Looking good so far!  I picked her up a while ago, she really is a cool model.  I'll have to live vicariously through you until I can get to her.   I like your ideas for her base.

I've done a bit more work, slowly, between other projects.

 

I smoothed out the yellows and painted her face.

A month later I gave her more silvery highlights.

A month after that I thought no, dang it, I want her to be really golden. I glazed her all over with Hansa Yellow Light (which is a regular Golden paint, not a matte fluid acrylic, which I used because it is transparent).

Speaking of slowly, I'm back to her!

 

I made a soft mauve from Ultramarine Blue, a tiny dab of Phthalocyanine Blue, Quinacridone Crimson and Titanium White and painted her blouse (using a bluer mix for shadows and a pinker mix for highlights).

And I slathered some copper metallic paint on her goggles, telescope, and gun, and silver on her armor. Normally I do a colored underpainting but I have taken so long to get to this and I am curious to see how it will work this way.

So you are working on a remake of the little mermaid? I really like that idea.

 

Put in some steampunk theme, crime, action and (of course) some HBO speciality, mix it - et voilá: Mermaid S.I. (Submarine Investigator).

 

Starring:

 

Ariel, the younger sister of Arielle and a selfmade private investigator

Sebastian, a crab and estate manager of Triton's Nest, an estate next to the Mariana Trench. He is know for having two sea lions, called Claus and Angelo

Fabius, a former military dolphin who now runs a bar called "the black smoker"

"Prince", a SEAL (play of words, yes) who is introduced as love interest for Ariel

 

Oh, boy. I that would be soooo great!

But afar from that. I like her face. Great work. Keep it up.

      My son's girlfriend stayed with us a week in the middle of May and I ran a Savage World WW2 horror one-shot.  Tillie here was one of the pre-generated characters I had ready, but she was not picked by any of the 3 players (my husband, my son and girlfriend).

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
       
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
       
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
       
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.

      Presenting the Artful Dodger, part of the Dickensian faction from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Not too happy with this one, he turned out to be surprisingly difficult to paint (and even harder to photograph!), but at least he's finally done (I partially painted up his resin version a few years ago).
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This is Bombshell Miniatures Fa'o the Cat Huntress (SKU 10049).  Fun figure, painted to tabletop standard.  Another one off the partially painted pile.
