Darksword Tiefling Bust

Recommended Posts

I love the bright colors!  Her expression is soooo awesome!

It is hard to push through on the larger pieces and I find my stamina isn't always there.  I find working on other smaller projects and then coming back to it helps sometimes. Keep it up!

She's great!!!!

 

And I disagree, you DO have the skill..

 

I paint busts and always paint something smaller at the same time.

That way you can alternate.

Like Corporea said.

 

Very cool eyes!!!

Not sure if you were just kidding, but yes, there is a mini for this from Darksword.

 

Edit: Messed up the quotes, so removed them instead.

I really like the bright colors. As for (hopefully) constructive critisism my (vastly) uneducated guess is that a darker skin tone would have enhanced the contrast with the colorful clothing and made the bust pop abit more.

LOVELY! She is exotic & more than a little sinister...BEAUTIFUL brushwork & an INSPIRED choice of colors. VERY WELL DONE!

Well you've definately done well on this one.  I love your color choice for the skin.  I've yet to try anything that big.  Larges peice I've done is the Phoenix (and I'm sill working on it).

"Don't think she looks too bad, but I'm not sure if I'll get any more busts in the future though, I don't really have the patience or skill to paint this larger scale stuff."

 

 

That was sarcasm... right?

 

You are supposed to use PURPLE for sarcasm so the rest of us know although in this case it is obvious as the SKILL level is very high as represented by the results.

 

 

I love it and the photos with the the shadows actually work.

Thanks everyone!

 

I dunno though, to me she still looks very flat and rushed, despite all the work that went into it.

I might tackle another bust in the future, it would depend on finding another one that really inspires me, like this did.

Yep, there is a mini version of her, she's sitting on a stool though.

I love ::wub:: the colors you've painted her in! she looks great IMHO. I agree with the others, you might just need to alternate between larger and smaller models so as to not get discouraged.

I like her very much!  As others have said, some darker, deeper skin shading would have made the other bits stand out more.  I think you did a particularly good job on the fabric.  I have yet to try a bust, so I commend you for giving it a go.

      Presenting Amiri, she's an Iconic Barbarian from Reapers Pathfinder line.
       
      Had this one a little while, but all the fiddly bits kept putting me off (and I normally like fiddly minis), she turned out to be super fun to paint though.
       
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      So this is my take at painting Na'Kaat
      My firend uses this mini as a pc in our dnd campaign. The axe that comes with the mini felt too small to her so I swapped it with the two handed axe from 03197: Thelgar Halfblood, Half Orc Barbarian.
       
      All in all this was one was nice to paint and is really nice to look at after  Hope you like it too!

      Vancouver Miniature Painters picked this for the first paint club item. It is Queen by Life Miniatures. I wanted to do more with it, and ended up doing the face and skin early.... then rushing the rest. All things considered, she turned out darn nice! Painted with a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Kimera. Reaper and Vallejo more on the skin and metal, Kimera more on the cloth. Many thanks to the paint club leader for good photos!

      So the ex is going to be joining a new campaign, and she asked me to paint her figure, the Stonehaven female gnome rogue....
       




      Still just starting, but need to motivate myself, as well as keeping track of colors....
      Scalera is Reaper Linen White
      Pupil Warcolours Green 3
      Skin SC 75 Arabic shade...
       
      Check back as more gets done!

      Finished her up the other night.  She's been on my desk for years, part of a batch of anthropomorphs I started and didn't quite finish. Yes, the colors are that bright. She has a ton of detail in her clothing but the body is kind of bland, so I went with brighter colors for interest.
