Well she's absolutely adorable! I especially love her little polka dot dress!

 

Thanks you, Guindyloo!  There was something about her that was just crying out for polka dots! :)

Good job!

 

 

Thank you!  LOL...Great setting of the scene, Xherman!

 

 

That wouldn't be based on a dime? :devil:

 

No, not a dime. It's actually it's a 3/4 inch fender washer. 

 

 

I love those polka-dots!  :D

 

Thanks, Jordan!  It took a good deal of concentration, and mistake fixing to get them that small! :)

 

 

Perfect polka-dots!

 

Thanks, AutumnHare!

Thank, malefactus!   She would probably be right at home walking the streets of the Blight. :)

love the dots.  

When I got this figure in bones 1 it was so Odd I just removed the one eye and painted it crudely as a fungus critter. 

To be honest I wanted a fungus creature more than a doll. 

 

But this is the figure done right.  The cuteness and the menace

Thanks, Evilhalfling!  I agree that it would make a good fungus cutter as well.  You could probably leave the eye, and with a little greenstuff turn it into a mushroom cap. :)

 

 

:blink:  That is actually really disturbing. 

 

Great job!

 

 

Thanks, Jokemeister!  And, I agree about the disturbing aspect. :)

Great work on something that small!

 

 

Thanks, Chaoswolf!   You're right about how small it is; though looking at it, I realize the tiny size doesn't really come across in the photo. I guess I should have included another regular figure in the picture for scale.

Please do, because you did such an impressive job of painting her up clearly so one can tell what she is and what she's doing, which is mind-boggling for something that small.

Thank you so much for the kind remarks regarding this little mini, Pingo!   In response to your request, here is a shot of Dolly next to Anval Thricedamned, to give a sense of her size.  She clearly has the poor barbarian perplexed as he ponders what new devilment this small creature presents!  ::):

      This is my first show-off thread of a smaller mini—my other ones have been D&D large size. I feel there's a lot of room for improvement, but I'm quite happy with this one, especially the eyes. C&C welcome.

      As a part of trying to incorporate contrast paints into my repertoire, I started by using contrasts mainly as another type of wash over zenithal grey on black undercoats. Which is good and well. However, I realised that I myself actally never have used them as advertised, globbed onto white or cream undercoats. Looking at pictures and videos of other people painting is fine, but really not a replacement for doing something yourself. After all, there is usually a great gap between theory and practice in most things.
      So I broke open the drawer full of old Bones 1 pc-type minis. These are some of the very few minis I have that are undercoated all in white. I don't even remember why. Maybe I was all out of  black primer spray or something. However, I was reminded why the old Bones 1 pc-type minis were consigned to the Drawers of Oblivion™ in the first place. Bendy. Soft. Shallow details. Faces without noses. Hands without fingers. Weapons made for poking around corners...
      Them old Bones are a quite different beast than the newer Bones. Which are still not pefect, but certainly miles better than alot of the old stuff.
      So I pulled one out more or less at random. I thought what I pulled was some sort of lady druid. Turned out she was a "Dark Elf Wizard". Right right.
      The stark white of the plastic and subsequent primer made the mini very difficult to read. Details? What details?
      At any rate, it was the first to get the prescribed Contrast treatment. No thinning, no nonsense. One coat, straight onto white undercoat.
       

      Which I rapidly found out was a bit of a utopian dream. Mr Shakyhands wanted it otherwise. I spent more time trying to correct overpaints than anything else. In the end (what, maybe all of 10 minutes) I gave up the fiddlywork and adopted a more laissez faire attitude to this.
      I am thinking if I do any more of these, which I most likely will just to get the feel of the different paints, I will be going for speed and single coats for starters. Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead! Let 'er rip! These minis would not get painted any other way, so whatevah!
      I mean, it went so fast I don't even remember quite which colours I used here. Was it gulliman or darkoath flesh? Was is snakebite or gore-grunta fur? Camo or militarum on the hair? I know it was Templar Black on the leggings, and Iyanden Yellow on the staff. The rest eludes me. This was a fast paint job.
      I did some details with regular paint, such as the eyes , the knees and the knife. The rest is constrast on white.

      I did however learn once and for all, that contrast is shiny. She looks positively wet in this picture. On the other hand, one of the problems I have earler had with this type of older Bones is that the detail is soft and shallow, and easily gets obscured by regular paint. Especially when using unthinned paint and several coats for coverage. The contrast does away with all that sort of thing as it is so thin, and actually brings out details I for one have not seen before. (Just like a wash, fancy that!)
       

       
      So this mini looks perfectly fine considering the amount of effort that did not go into it. Also it shows that contrast paints can work on thinner, shallower minis than the GW chubbies they usually are shown on.
