Enjoy that 'rita;  you've earned it.  That's a fair, nay--impressive, likeness to Mila's skin tone.  The whitest highlight could be knocked back in expanse just a bit I think, particularly between the eyebrows, above the bridge of the nose, and just under the eyes.  Just needs some more shade in those areas I think.  And I notice because these are the things I'm currently working on myself!

Thanks everyone!  I'm having a lot of fun with this one.


Whew.  I got bunches done yesterday and today.  And went out for Thai food.  Yum!!


first, corset thingy.  I googled some photos and decided to try a black-olive mix.


not sure why I spent time on the bottom since it'll be covered, but it was probably good for me to practice.  Plus- no blank areas to be discovered after I attach the other arm/kitty! This done with the IMEF olive, walnut brown and palomino gold.


here's the palette.  i tend to mix up a few mid shades and then blend/glaze.


you can see the corset mix at the bottom and the cream sleeve mix on the top left. skin's sort of in the middle.  


next, sleeve:


painting "whites" really isn't fun.  Best thing I've figured out is just to be patient with it and not rush the steps.  It requires smooth blends and very faint highlights to keep from looking too dirty.  I end up doing a lot of layers and glazing to smooth it out.



sorta.  Anyway, I used the IMEF olive and creamy ivory, the a bit of linen white.


an in progress.  I shaded the cream with the flesh tones on top and the olive on the bottom.  



ok, the rest in the next post just in case the system dislikes too many pics!

blargh.  computer is evil.  :grr:  lost this post twice!  Glad I did the post-break!



TMM.  the real metallics.  These are not intuitive for me so this is good practice.


base coated with walnut brown



vallejo model air metallic gold.  Love this stuff!  It's so shiny!.  I might be a convert.  I was originally just going to buy the chrome, but the whole set was on sale, so...  :down:  I caved.  Glad I did, cause I loves them!  :bday:



I mixed the spattered crimson, walnut brown, metallic gold and gloss medium.  I stippled it on to blend.



used walnut in the corners and brightened the middle with the gold.


side view. sorry, these don't photo well.


making the back darker/absent-ish light source.



I did some scratches and rust.  Used the chrome and glazed over it with gold.  used the chrome at the hotspots as well.  Best way to do dents and scratches is to put the bright area underneath.


in progress:


I'm happy with the color of the metal in terms of balancing with everything else.


other sleeve:


same colors as before.



ugh.  blurry. um...




going to move to another post.  afraid computer will eat it again...

      The merfolk in Dark Depths sculpted by Bobby Jackson were one of the things I was most looking forward to in Bones 5.
      I chose the Mermaid Ranger for my RCL Q3 Large Group “Under the Sea”, and started work on her after ReaperCon.
      I've been trying to make bolder color choices, and thought this was a great mini to push myself in that direction.
      I’ve posted some WIPs on discord, but wanted to record the process here in a bit more detail.

      First I primed both rangers with Badger neutral primer, and then basecoated the tails and hair with 0963 Coal Black

      Then I tried to airbrush the tails with 09330 Wild Violet while leaving some dark shadows.

      Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far.
      They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

        This is my first post really on forums.  I normally post on Facebook. My wife and I paint models alot of the time side by side. Whilst I prep our quarterly contest entry we worked on these Storm Giants...  About half way done.
