Below is my spring exchange sent to Fanguard "the god of exchanges" so the pressure was on.  he wanted something,, and I quote

 

"Maybe something inspired by "Fairy Tail" the anime/manga"

 

So after doing some research and watching a number of Anime shorts online, I selected one of the main characters to emulate along with  a background character.  Of course I did not choose one of the "good" "guys", instead I went for one of the bad girls!

 

Using 60129: Chelaxian Infernal Binder as the mini I give you

 

Minerva Orlando of the Sabertooth guild!

I tried to imitate her power build up magic vortex in her casting hand, which always happens just before she casts a spell.  The colors overall are loosely based on the character including her signature whites scarf.  I , of course, had too add my own signature color (orange) as well.

 

Then I added the background Palace guard character.  The guards show up in the series in the last episode I watched,,, just cause!

here is 14407: Crusader Templar Ironspine as the guard in his dress palace colors!

Greatly appreciated, robin!  I really like how you did the magical power-up thing.  Definitely looks more like a spell effect than the typical metal-blob-on-end-of-hand that minis often come with.

      I just wanted to share a Medieval Knight I painted off of MMF. It was my first bust painted and 3D printed. I learned a lot from this bust. I also tried a new technique by priming pink and doing a zenithal highlight in white ink and shadows with dark pink ink. Then going over with yellow ink to finish it off.  I hope you all enjoy as much as I did painting it.

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
       
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
       

       
      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
       

       
      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!

      Laurana came to me in the old LTPK 2 as one of my very first minis in 2010 or so. This set even had the old Pro Paints in it, almost all of wich gave up on me a long time ago. Only Ruddy Flesh and the Copper Metallic Paint are left, both are still among my workhorse paints.
       
      While Laurana's companion Tsuko was painted up fairly quickly, I struggled with painting her forever. First the scroll would not come out right, and then the eyes turned out to be a major problem for me - you see, the pupils of the eyes are sculpted, so my usual strategies didn't work for her.
       
      But after years and years on my shelf of shame she's finally done! Once I got past the scroll and the eyes she was actually a joy to paint. Also, I really like the expressive pose.
       
      So here she is, c&c very welcome!

      The third and final big box from Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is full of Batmen from various countries.  Apparently Bruce Wane decided to franchise superheroing like a McDonalds.  
       
      The crew, part 1 - 

       
      Dark Ranger is the Australian "Batman".  He dresses in white, uses guns and flies around on a jetpack.  Just like Batman...yeah I don't get it.  
         
       
      Knight, Batman of England.  
         
       
      Chief Man-of-Bats, of the Dakota territories.  I tried to get his eyes white but it never looked good, so I wound up going black.
          
       
      Raven Red, the Chief's son and sidekick.  His eyes came out much better than his dad's.

      I was trying to use rose gold, with new gold as the highlights.
