 The position of the gun against the skellie's head and its open-mouthed expression are perfect, lol... ::D:  That moment when you've just discovered someone's jammed a really big gun up against your head...

 

 Although, it may just be the lighting in the pic, but in the back view it kind of looks like she's not wearing any pants...

*** On behalf of the Living Impaired I would like to press charges against this hateful individual.*****

 

*** This woman seems to attack any of them on sight, just because of their condition!***

 

*** It is not their fault!, they're Undead, a condition everyone of us could be suffering from at a given time***

 

*** I would like to know what cause of action will be taken against this spiteful individual who keeps harassing the poor undead***

"I warn you. I rarely miss at this range." Peter Lorre. That's what passed through my mind immediately after the "Oh my, but that is BEAUTIFUL!". The narrative composition,  brushwork, & basing are WONDERFULLY IMAGINATIVE SPLENDIDLY executed. VERY WELL DONE indeed!

beautiful!

My only thought is that she looks out of place on the base because her colors are not echoed anywhere else.  What are your thoughts about working some of her browns into the ground and the tree stump?  i think that would do it.  otherwise, it seems like she's Dorothy in a nearly monochrome skellie land (which is cool, btw.) But I'm wondering if she wouldn't fit better with some hints of color around her (other than the cool green, which helps a bunch for contrast!)  At any rate, that's my only idea.

You hit the nail on the head for this. I was thinking the same thing, it's a gorgeous piece, but not very cohesive.

 

I'd even recommend a light brown wash on the skeletons to "dirty" them up a bit as they are coming out of the ground. They could be yellowed bones this way and REALLY tie the whole piece together.

First of all, thank you so much to all of you for your super kind words!!!  ::):

lol, in that case, she might want to wear some sunscreen 'cause those are some seriously burned cheeks!

These are very valid points and caused me serious pause partway through the mini.  I attempted to address them by changing the rim of the base from pure black to Brown Liner, and that helped ever so slightly but not fully.  However, in the end, I think that I'm going to leave things as is for two reasons:

 

The artsy reason:  I do kind of like the contrast between the warm tones of the fiery heroine and the cool undead.

 

The lazy reason:  I reach a point with every mini where I'm done and ready to move on, and I've definitely hit that point with this one!

 

In the end, my laziness is probably the driving factor, but I want to learn from that astute critique and be more cohesive next time, so I thank you both!

      This Bombshell Miniatures' 75mm resin Tara purchased at last year's ReaperCon. She's actually a skosh over 80mm. She's also listed as 1/24th scale, which puts her a tad over six feet. The kit is four pieces - body/legs/upper arms/head, lower arms incorporating a head and sword, and a small rocky base.  The body is well toned with noticeable muscle definition. My example had a large resin blob hanging down betwixt her legs (the one time I don't check a figure for issues/parts). Anywho, Dremel to the rescue. I routed out the blob and reshaped her thighs. Since her skirt is very short, I painted in a pair of expensive solid black tactical La Perla boyshorts. Nuthin' but the best... The rest is of the casting was fine although the sword scaled out to over 40 inches and was too thick. I took some of the length off and thinned it down. I also added a scabbard, since none was included. An odd omission... I also added a secondary weapon in the form of a boot knife. The skin tones are the new Bones colors and, since she has a barbarian look about her, I imparted a somewhat dirty and sweaty look to her - no smooth boudoir look transitions here. I also toned down the highlights in her hair - barbarian vs shampoo commercial. I did add a bit of makeup to her face (contradictory, I know). All other paints are Reaper's MSPs. The base was extended with Aves Apoxie Sculpt, stippled with an old oil painting brush with kitty litter rocks and pebbles. I added pointed ears to the severed head, and painted it using the Dark Elf Skin triad.
       
      Qs and Cs welcomed.

      Well my sister loves Pandas and was mad I wouldn't give her the one I entered at Reapercon. So I painted a second one up for her birthday in purple, her favorite color.

      This was my Painter's entry from Reapercon this year (I got a bronze! Yay! And a silver manufacturer's award! YAY!). Unfortunately, the camera was slightly off level when they took the picture at reapercon, so I straightened it up. I named her Chuntao which means 'spring peach'.

      My sister loves Pandas, but I refuse to give her this one, so I'm currently painting up one for her birthday.
