Two down, four? to go. The elf and fairy are done while the vampire has been started and I would say is 70% done. I also have been doing base work but forgot to take pictures. I poured the resin for the fairy's and is seems to have set with no leaks, so yeah! No frontal pictures of the fairy right now but I will try to get one up tomorrow.

Some mouseling is peeking around your light....

Maybe he is looking for paint? ??

Very good progress!

 

Also, congrats on your successful resin/basing work.

 

Thanks, just keep your fingers crossed that the resin actually set. I won't know for sure until tomorrow.

Thank! I wish I had time to paint him but he will have to wait. He was part of the package containing the two for my diorama and I have not put him away yet so he has been supervising.

Those mini's are looking great. Love the blue you have going on the last photo.

 

Thanks! Surprisingly there is little actual blue in it. It is Icy Violet shaded with Royal Purple and highlighted with True Blue. I am finding that I like to play with colors like this.

Alright, here is the front picture (link due to nudity) of the fairy. I painted the ribbon in her hair as a vine and added a couple of flowers and some leaves. I should have left the flowers off and just used leaves. I am not happy with them but it is too late now. The flowers are from a railroad garden kit and are not sculpted by me.

 

Fairy, Front

maybe if you think of the flowers as berry clusters it won't annoy you as much.

 

 

I think it looks great.

Berry clusters work, probably due to the colors. Thanks!

Ok, no pictures at this point, I might take some later tonight. I have finished the skin and pants on the toad. I also completed the leather, including the whip, and hair of the vampire. Good news is the resin fully set for the fairy's base and it has been sanded and sealed. I added little bit of white to the flowers in her hair and they look a lot better. I also added a few of them to the base to tie things together and added the willow foilage. Except for blackening the plinth and a few corrections, her base is done.

 

Here is my checklist, I have included the names for the pieces but I do not have one for the vampire and have not settled on one for the elf. If you have any suggestions for them or replacements for the others, feel free to chime in.

 

Vampire: "???????"

- Boots

- Metallics

Base

- Mushrooms

- Skulls

- Dirt

- Foilage

 

Elf: "Forest Eternal" or "Forest's Return"

- Done

Base

- Mushrooms

- Tree

- Skull

- Dirt

- Foilage

 

Mouslings: "The Hunt"

- Leather

- Green Cloak

- Wood/Acorn

- Metallics

- Spider

Base

- Finish Stone

- Dirt

- Foilage

- Web?

 

Cat/Toad: "The Bridge"

- Leather

- Metallics

- Wood

- Eyes

Base

- Finish Stone

- Dirt

- Sign

- Treasure

- Water

- Foilage

 

Kabuki Hunter: "The Hunter"

- Leather

- Axe handle

- Metallics

- Hair and eyes

Base

- Add dirt

- Everthing

 

Fairy: "The Blue Fairy"

DONE!!!

 

It may seem like a lot but in reality most of the big stuff is done. This is just little stuff here and there that should not take too long. The biggest thing left is probably the metallics and not waiting until the last minute to do the water under the bridge. I will be using Secret Weapon's water effects not resin as it is a shallow pour. If I had finished painting that part of the base before I did the fairy's water, I would have used the left over resin from that. Unfortunately I thought of it right after I finished mixing the resin.

Ok, lengthy picture update with few words. Any feedback and name suggestions would be most welcome.

 

Spider is done:

Horny toad, a little washed out by the light:

Grey Mousling, why did I never paint Mouslings before, they are too much fun:

The red hunter with her rope bag of orc heads. I love how the red turned out:

The vampire that is turning out to be my favorite. Still surprised the whip worked out:

lovely,   I suspect your not done so ignore my suggestions ...  Toad's leather needs some highlights as well as the tummy on the mousling.

 

The Vampire is the best of the lot but I think the mousling is giving her a bit of a run for the top spot.

      I got this mini in the Mini Painting 101 class at ReaperCon.  This was our first ReaperCon - my wife and I took the class together.  I’d painted about a dozen minis (badly) for D&D before going to RC.
       
      I like this sculpt, and I wanted to work on improving my basic painting skills.  I decided to keep working on her to see how far I can go.
       
      I’ve spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on her already.  I do feel like I’m learning a lot though and getting better at controlling my brush and getting paint consistency right.
       
      I broke out one of the good brushes I had bought and not touched - a da Vinci Maestro.  I still feel unworthy to use it but maybe it will help me get better.
       
      I’ve done a lot of work on the red armor already, but still need to do some more highlighting.  I think I might have overdone the highlights on the green ropes in some places.  I was planning to glaze them down and redo a bit smaller.
       
      Thanks for taking a look.  I would greatly appreciate any feedback or tips on what I can improve on the parts I’ve worked on already.
       
      Here she is so far - she looks a lot better if you squint.

      Good Evening! SO after sorting through my minis and cleaning up my workstation post reaper con, I felt inspired to tackle some techniques that I have been avoiding. I wanted to pick a mini that i felt I could paint quickly (but lessbehonest, I don't paint quickly at all) and that would be a good candidate for two techniques that I am trying to learn. after a long drawn out process of hemming and hawing I found a miniature that I received an unmentionable number of years ago from reaper as a prize for buying miniatures during October. So it is Krissy the modern witch with out her familiar.

       
      I have an idea of what I want to do, I want to keep the miniature a tight focus on OSL and Transparent fabric. If I am feeling like it after I have completed the mini, I may do a special base for her. I feel pretty good about my understanding of color, but I think this is going to be a pretty good challenge. Here's what I have so far.

      This was one of my diorama entries for ReaperCon featuring miniatures from Dark Sword Miniatures. I had diorama ideas centered around the female figure occupying my mind for a while before I settled on this one. I tried a few other figures with her but nothing fit until I got the male figure and then added the wolf. I am very happy with how it came together and was very pleased that it received a Gold medal in the Diorama Category. I also was honored to receive second place diorama from Dark Sword.

      Hey guys! 
      I haven't stopped moving since Reapercon. 
      This was my Paint It Pink entry, "Screening Ain't Sexy".
      Hope y'all like it. I enjoy things that are ridiculous, and applying fake eyelashes to a miniature monster paint pot fit the bill for me. :D
       
      C&C is always welcome!
