She was stunning! Congrats on the well deserved gold. I remember when you handed her to me to take a photo I had to ask if you sculpted her as I thought perhaps I somehow missed her release. Thanks for posting some of the process it is an interesting read, and of course bringing her to the show for us all the marvel at. Just lovely.

you have no idea how disappointed I am that there is not going to be a line of Pathfinder busts now....

 

Lovely work however, I can't give this nearly enough likes for what it deserves.

 

Thanks!

 

Maybe after I resculpt her, and fix all the mistakes that I know I made with her, I could try twisting somebody's arm at Paizo (not likely).

Great work, again!

Glad we had a chance to talk about it in more detail after you won your gold medal.

(And you're inspiring me to sculpt a bust of my own.)

I look forward to seeing what you come up with next, whether at this large scale or something smaller.

This was great (especially for a first attempt). I am excited to see what you do with the lessons you learned and improvements you want to make. Aside from the self critique you already mentioned I would add to watch for the lower eyelids. If they are too pronounced on female characters it tends to make them look old or unfeminine. Thanks for sharing your processes!

Also, this wasn't a first attempt. I don't want to give anybody some unrealistic expectations of me. ;)

 

There were 2 other head/torso sculpts that I almost finished before realizing how horribly off-course I had gone. There were also probably at least 7 decent revisions, too -- things where I'd wake up the next morning, and cut off her nose, so I'd have no choice but to redo it after I got home from work.

 

That was probably the biggest thing I learned on this project -- not just being even more critical of myself, but being able to readily accept that last night was just a learning experience, and that tonight might be a learning experience, too. And maybe tomorrow night will also be a learning experience. And the night after, and the night after...

      I managed to make my November quota and than some more, now time to relax for holidays and birthday. She was a throwback from october when I did a few from pathfinder line, but never had prep her.

      He was a leftover from a group of pathfinder mini's I primed but forgot to finish from my last posting.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      Hello again, this one is Darkblade, a Wizkids Pathfinder Deep Cuts 72596, Human Male Fighter. Darkblade is also a the character of one of the players of our D&D group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? 
       
      I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been enjoying seeing the pics shared here. So here is to a year of painting more minis and bringing them to Texas in 2022. 
       
      Now without further ado, Akiko.
