Bombshell Babes 10037 - Serina the Steampunk Mermaid


Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

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.

      ******************
       
      Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them.
      Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary.
      Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked.
      People no longer believed in the supernatural.
      Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet.
      When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer.
      He would show them!
      He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again!
      Once more the vile Undead would flee before him!
      And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order..

      Presenting the Shrike Urchin, this sewer wader is part of Twisteds Dickensian faction.
       
      Really struggled with this one for some reason (the fact he's very unstable didn't help), but I think he came out okay.

      Deadlands is a series of Role Playing Games based around alternative history, with the major change taking place on July 3rd, 1863. This change, called The Reckoning, made the US Civil War grind to a halt, resulted in half of California fall into the sea, and had a new miracle substance called Ghost Rock revolutionize technology. The game has used different rules systems; including the original "classic" system, Savage Worlds, a new system that is/was releasing soon, a d20 conversion, and had a GURPS port.
      The Weird West - Beginning in 1876, players would wander around the Weird West, full of monsters, gunfighters, agents of the United States of America, Confederate States of America, the United Kingdom, the Empire of Mexico, the Dominion of Canada, and Lost Angels, might get involved in the Great Rail Wars, get lost in the Sioux Nations, or confront the creations of the New Science.
      The Wasted West - It's 2094 and the world is almost over. Irradiated Ghost Rock bombs, as well as conventional nuclear weapons, were dropped on major cities all over the globe. The east of the Mississippi  river is full of the Walkin' Dead, the city of Lost Angels has fallen into the Pacific Ocean, and the only place where people can eek out a living is the west. Using Spook Juice, you can travel the collapsing highways from Junkyard to the ruins of Boise, and all points in between, traveling with Templars, Tellers, Cyborgs, Toxic Shamans, Sykers, and Junkmen.
      The Way Out West - The final part of the original trilogy of settings, this one is set on Banshee, the first alien world colonized by humanity. Of course, there were native people there first, and history has repeated itself again. Take up a badge and defend the colonists, or rob them instead, or maybe try to work with the natives, now that no one from Earth is coming to help. Ever.
      Deadlands: Noir - Set in the period between World Wars, centered around New Orleans, this was the first new game and first one done in the Savage Worlds system.
       
      So, I made this thread so folks could talk about games they're run/played, ask questions about the setting and system(s), or just share their love for the game.

      Hello all you Reaper people!
       
      So, Bones V will be hopefully arriving in the next few months, and one thing I told myself was that before I got my package, I wanted to finish the smaller Yephima sculpt before the new and larger Yephima shows up at my door.  I really love both versions, and I just wish this Yephima would be available in metal.
       
      I tried painting her already years ago, started even a WIP in the forum, which I'd have to hunt down. My original thought was make her a very, dark dusky color and blonde hair with pinks and oranges, but at one point my inspiration went awry and I stopped painting her probably to be an eternal WIP.  But then a few years later, I got a new copy and this one I did more sky blue and blonde, but it doesn't look as pinkish as I originally had thought.  I also think I made my metals way too blue, but oh well. I actually enjoyed painting this lady to the degree that I could see myself painting her again with a different color scheme. One of the other benefits of Bones is the cost, I can grab a new one quickly for around 7.00, so that's also a nice Bones bonus!
      Anyhoos, here she is:

       
      With such a big model, after taking photos, I can see so many glaring issues, but oh well, not going to let myself worry about it too much and will rather maybe go back and paint her up gain some day, incorporating a few fixes.

      Presenting Little Dorothy, the fourth member and leader of the Oz gang from Twisted by Demented games.
      Wasn't as fun to paint as some of the others, but I think she turned out okay.
       
      As a bonus, here she is with Big Dorothy (The original version I painted a while ago):-
       

       
      Weirdly, they both ended up in the same colour dress despite not looking at Big Dorothy until I dug her out to take this piccy.
