While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not. She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.>
77265 - Drys, Dryad
I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle. The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : ) EDIT - front of dryad: https://goo.gl/photos/1FRcQ5ZqZoqGt3dCA
77313 - Krug, Hill Giant
Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure.
77314 - Golan, Hill Giant
This figure is very... uh, purple. But I think it works well. I might have to go over it and tidy up some of the tree branch club - the paint coverage isn't as good as it could be. But still a lovely bit of work.
89013 - Ezren, Iconic Wizard
She has this annoying tendancy to rattle off freehand that's better than my "paint by numbers" detail work, elf her eyes! This one was a fairly fast paint, with not as much shading as she's done elsewhere.
89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic Magus
She refers to this one as her "Michael Jackson" figure, for obvious reasons : )
I love the sculpt for this guy. So much fun stuff to work with. But in the end I got fed up with him and wanted him done - he's intended for tabletop use, and I decided that all the fiddly pouches & stuff hanging off his belts weren't going to get the time and attention they deserved, so they kinda got a brown splatted on there and I called it done. To be honest, I'll probably come back and touch this guy up later when I'm feeling ambitious, but for now... this works.
I think I actually had the lighting turned up a little too much for the photo... He's got fairly noticeable highlighting in real life, but it mostly washed out on here. Oh well, at least you can see his fire hair, and the silly lava base I made for him. This is my Frostgrave apprentice, an elementalist focusing primarily on fire (shockingly!). The actual wizard is still a WIP; she'll be along probably towards the end of February, at the rate I've been going on her. In the meantime, I have this guy looking menacing on the battlefield.
Finally got a real start on my first wizard destined for Frostgrave. Not thrilled with his face - I'm having a lot of trouble with eyes, shockingly - but I've decided to move on to other stuff. I might come back and try to make his face less weird later.
He's an elemental wizard, primarily fire, and I thought it'd be fun to do the hair up as if it were flames. I think it's coming out OK finally, but it's taken some tinkering.
So! Thoughts? Things I should change? Did I actually manage to do something well?
This was an interesting model to paint. I got a little muddled in the center, as there is a ton of detail there. This was kind of a quick paint. I notice, however, the subtle shading I used looks much better in person. I need to set up my camera for pics again. Currently I am using my iPhone.
At any rate. Here he is!
Man, there's a lot of details on these minis. Every time you think you are finished you see a buckle or something you missed. Some of the detail gets a bit muddy in the Bones material, but overall these have been fun to paint. Nice to not have to make color choices sometimes...
Related note - how the heck does everyone pronounce Seltyiel? I love me some Pathfinder but the names sometimes...
