Bones highland heroine 77389

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Wanted to take a break from painting big stompy robots (CAVs) and get back into something with curves. Someone in my pathfinder group just made a new character, a female slayer... So I used that as motivation to paint up this awesome sculpt.

 

I looked around and got heavy inspiration from these two posts by Pingo and Evilcoatrack:

I decided to try a few new things with this mini, including thinning using matte medium, and a tartan pattern. Tartan is really hard to make look good... If anyone had any tips, I am all ears. I just finished the hair and am really happy with how it came out, and this is probably the best face I have ever done as well (with eyes, no less!). In fact, the irises went on a bit thick, so there is a little dollop that creates a shadow under strong light to mimic a pupil ... Kind of like the opposite of what Roman sculptures do. A fortunate accident.

 

Anyway, C and C appreciated. I reckon I'll have her done by the end of the week. I'll be trying nmm on the sword and shields. Pingo and Evilcoatrack, thanks for the inspiration!!!

If you have a spare moment...  I would LOVE to know a little about how you did her hair.  That is a gorgeous color!  The tartan is off to a good start too, it's got the right feel to it.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!

 

Git a little painting done this morning before heading to Thanksgiving dinner. I prepped the metals for my first attempt at doing NMM, and did the basecoat and dark wash for the fur border of the cape. I also darkened the gold stripe on the cape.

 

 

I don't have time to discuss the hair right now, but I will get to it!!
