Also, you guys got to fill me in:  What's the deal with these Google hangouts that I've been hearing about?  Is this a Reaper forum get-together and paint party?

Yes, there's a thread for it too. Log in, hang out, have fun, paint, talk. It's pretty cool.

Thread and link pinned in off topic rampancy.

Lots of fun, and motivational too.

Instant feedback available, and some alleged humor as well. ..

Finally made some more progress on her skin.  It's not completely finished, I only blended up to her 1st highlight.  Hopefully I will be more consistent with painting her up.

Try adding some slight glazes of different colors to the skin in the shadows like red, green, blue, or purple depending on what you see her ethnicity to be and the temperature.

Looks like a great candidate for the old L2PK3 technique!

Oh yeah, don't forget to highlight the underboob a bit. Doesn't make sense in reality, but it's straight-up rule-of-cool, makes the mini look better. Maybe sexist, but hey...scalemail bikini.

I like her a lot.

 

So what kind of cape will she be wearing?

Oh yeah, I'll match your L2PK3 with mine:

Good suggestion, I was waiting till after higher/highest highlight to decide which direction to take the deepest shadows. The shadows already have RMS Mahogany Brown (a reddish brown), but I thought that too drastic for a smooth transition.  I like the glaze idea, so i'll have to think on that.

A Fur cape.  Though I'm not locked into what beast yet.

      I just finished up this miniature - it is sculpted by Reaper veteran Matt Gubser and is based on concept art and ideas from myself and Byron Roberts (the creator of Caylen-Tor in his fiction and his lyrics for the mighty Bal-Sagoth).

      Hi Everyone,

      This is my first time sharing my miniatures step by step, and excited to do so. Hopefully I can learn some things and everyone else who views the thread will learn a bit too.
      I have been looking forward to the Starcadia board game and especially painting the minis that come with it. So first up is the Weeble alien monster. I picked it for 2 reasons, 1 because it was a simple model and I wanted to try my hand at the big eye. There are 4 total Weeble models and it took about 4-5 hours to get to the point in the last photo. I decided to mimic the illustration that came on the Weeble card in the game, so I am using a similar color scheme.

      First step was prepping the model, and removing the mold lines. 2 of the 4 models had 2 bad areas on their left fin that left gaps and a rough spot. To fix it, I tried a new method, I put a little varnish on each area. If you haven't tried it, I definitely recommend it for small gaps or trouble areas that need filled or smoothed. I put a small dab on, let it dry and done, no need to pull out the putty.

      2nd step was priming. I don't like the spray can so I use gesso. It might take a little longer, but no noxious fumes and extra space needed, just brush it on and let it dry. I just spread it thin and quick most of the time, hence the streaking in the picture. The streaking never shows on a finished mini from what I have experienced.

      3 is where the fun began for me, choosing the colors and beginning to paint. My most recent elven minis, I started experimenting with different ways to do base coating and time around I am trying a colored base that is different that the final paint layer. I'm trying this out to see if I can reduce a step in my process and still get results I like. After examining the illustration, I settled on a blue-green for the body of the Weeble, and yellow for the eye. I plan on keeping with the warm yellow highlight in the front and the cold blue / purple shadow in the back. Once I decided that, I chose my basing colors, of a dark yellow brown for the front and dark blue purple for the back.

      4 with the base shadows on the model, I started working from dark to light. I mixed up a glaze of a medium green and medium purple blue. I gradually worked up the colors with multiple layers making sure to blend the colors together where the transition occurred between them. I left the eye alone, because the dark yellow brown was perfect for the yellow eye.

      5 once I was happy with the dark colors, I moved on to my mid-tones. I mixed up glazes of yellow green for the warm light and a blue green for the cold light. I took my time on this step again applying the glazes in layers to build up the color. I decided to try reflected / bounce lighting on the model, so I applied the blue green more on top of the model and the yellow green more on the bottom. I imagine the lighting being blue white (like a daylight bulb) which results a warmer reflected light in the areas not directly hit by the blue light.

      6 after a while I moved on to the eye. I continued with painting dark to light, so I chose an orange brown for the light area and the same yellow brown and dark blue purple for the shadowed area. Again I gradually applied the glazes and blended them together.

      Overall I am pleased with the direction it is going, and it is still far from done. I having gotten to the brightest highlights or even attempted the mouth yet. After that will be the finishing touches, the green slime, and scaly lumps. In the illustration the lumps are black but I don't think black will look good, any suggestions? I was also thinking of doing a slime trail, or more drool I've not done something like that before does anyone have any suggestions in the direction? Or should I not do a slime trail or more drool?

      Painted this up. Finally attached her to the base. Not sure if I want to just paint black over the base or do something fancy with it.

      It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here.
       

       
      I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back.  TMM was used on the metal.
