Attack of the Insect Woman! WIP

Recommended Posts

Another project I'm going to slowly nibble away at, when I'm in the mood.

 

Due to her bare boobies, most of the piccys on this one will have to be linked off-site, but it should still make for an interesting WIP.

So far she's been assembled and I'm waiting for a bit of green stuff work to dry.

Super impressed by the casting, virtually no moldlines, only one bubble and most pieces fitting together seamlessly (there were minor gaps on her human arms), it's my new benchmark for what a good resin mini should be like.

 

Next job will be to get her primed and then start on her skin (without using my Fleshshade Wash, the horror!).

That's a "disturbing" mini...

 

Curious to see how you will paint this.

Made a start on her skin today:-

It took 8 coats of the 1:1 Vallejo Rosy Skin/Vallejo Flat Flesh base mix before I got a solid layer, so I didn't get any further (I was all painted out), but I did get her fancy base undercoated:-

Should look pretty nice when it's all finished.

Progress:-

Couldn't wrap my head around doing her skin without Fleshshade Wash (I'm just way too reliant on the stuff now), so despite it not really working on large areas, she got a coat of it.

 

Then I built it up with highlights of 1:1 Vallejo Rosy Skin/Vallejo Flat Flesh, 1:1:2 Rosy Skin/Flat Flesh/Vallejo Light Flesh and pure Light Flesh. This looked terrible.

 

So I made a glaze of my base Rosy Skin/Flat Flesh mix, this also looked terrible (I think I didn't thin my glaze enough, I only used a 1:2 paint/Glaze Medium ratio).

 

Next she got Old West Rose nipples and lips, these areas plus her armpits, under her breasts and anywhere skin met something else got some Fleshshade Wash, and then everything got a coat of thinned Fleshshade Wash, this didn't look that bad.

 

It still looks pretty rough, but comparing it to the mess I normally make of the skin on large minis, I'm quite pleased with myself. I might glaze some pure Rosy Flesh on to her cheeks (if I can get it thin enough), but otherwise I'm calling her skin done and moving on to her hair.

Her skin looks really good and natural. I like it.

 

Thanks. Due to the glossiness from her being a bit wet at the time and some sympathetic lighting, she looks better in the picture than she does in hand, but I'm still happy.

Woot! More progress:-

Hair is done, Oiled Leather > Palomino Gold > 1:2 Palomino Gold/Vallejo Bonewhite > Sepia Shade Wash.

Probably could have done with another step between the Oiled Leather and Palomino Gold ones, to make it look more realistic, but I'm still pleased with how this is going at the moment.

 

Next job will be to finish the head. So that's her antennae, cloth bits (blindfold, throat and arm bandages) and jewellery (earrings and bangle).

Little bit more progress:-

Did her antenna in Vallejo Hexed Lichen with a drybrush of Vallejo Warlord Purple.

Cloth bits were Fresh Blood with a Brown Wash, then I reapplied the Fresh Blood. Her jewellery was the same but using Vallejo Hammered Copper.

 

Did want to do more highlights to both the cloth and the jewellery, but my hands just weren't up to it today, maybe next time.

Thanks guys!

 

Did a bit more today (straps and forearm wraps), but the piccys were so bad I'm not even going to put them up, and now she's wet and shiny with varnish, so further piccys will have to wait until I complete the next bits (caged fairy and dismembered fairy).

      Pretty much no pictures of her are safe for work because boobs and pubes and butts. 
       
      Therefore, I link my Imgur album with pictures of her. First four photos, others are past work. TADA!!!

      This is my first take on a bust. It's from Kabuki 1/6 scale.
      Since she's a Not Red Sonja, I gave her warpaint like Conan has.
       
      I tried a freehand tattoo, it's supposed to be a stylized Dragon/Snake eating his own tail.
       
      I had loads of fun painting her.
       
       
      Here Is my WIP if interested.

      Magically Distracted
       
      She sat on her favorite stool, having gotten mostly undressed and relaxed, gently swirling the goblet of red wine in her hand as she read through the grimore in her lap... closing her eyes she gently concentrated on the spell that was before her... suddenly the books piled around her lifted up in the air as if they had minds of their own and were caught in a small windstorm. She giggled to herself and took another long drink of the wine from her goblet and continued to study...
       
      ---------------------
       
      This was a really fun project that I started up in April of this year. My goal was to get her done in time for the 'eavier metal online contest (Facebook) and see if I could place or perhaps get a random draw. I ended up uploading her about 10 minutes late, so I have no idea at the time of doing this post if she will be considered in the contest or if she will be disqualified. Either way, I had fun, I had tons of amazing feedback during the WIP and a lot of people cheering me on to get it finished.
       
      I present to you "Magically Distracted" a NSFW Kingdom Death figure in the 54mm scale, she is a limited edition resin release. Please feel free to give your comments and critiques. I'm going to check and see if I am allowed to bring a nude figure to ReaperCon this year for entry into their painters contest or not. If not, she'll stay home as I do have plenty of other things to enter as well. A few firsts on this one, I did some elaborate tattoos, magical floating books, writing in books in freehand, a completely nude figure, texturing pattern, Venus dimples, and last but not least sheer stockings (which were a lot of fun and a lot of work!).
       
      First - pics that are SFW and then I'll post some NSFW links (special thanks to @Thrym for hooking me up with his site for hosting as Facebook links expire) and for helping me out with the really cool title placard).
       

       
      NSFW Links
      One
      Two
      Three
      Four
      Five
       
      ETA: Better pics after a bit of clean-up to the OSL and added red ink to the drink.

      Hope you like him.
      Personally I was more satisfied with my job on the Hyena then on this one, but he was fun.
