COUNTESS KARNSTEIN BUST by GLITTERWOLF SOLARWIND

Recommended Posts

Nice job, the eyes and gems stand out and I like the patina on the plaque.

 

Thank you! Glad the Vampire Lady likes the Vampire ^_^

 

Amazing work

it would be a privilege to be bitten by her

The bust is rather spiffy. Really like the subtle shading you achieved on the skin. The tone is very suitable for her and I consider using a similar one on my Necromanceress/Necromantess.

 

Adding colour with both the red strain of hair and the vivid make up really adds to the overall appearance: She is a seductress, not so much a Nosferatuesque monstrum. She also has a certain 80s vibe.

 

The gold and jewels are realised well and look the part to me.

 

Finally the choice of background is excellent. I would print the motif out a bit bigger and take a portrait shot of her without surroundings for full immersion. You could also try a low light shot with some pale white light coming from the direction of the window.

 

Did you consider adding a bit of blood running down the corner of her mouth?

Good idea about the print.

Maybe I will get a bigger one.

 

During the WIP I considered the idea of a little drop running from her mouth.

Maybe even some splatter on her ***erm*** her... well ..ehhh.. Yeah, there...

 

In the end I decided not too.

Mostly because it is almost always done with a vampire, and I wanted her to be all seductive and ready.

 

The victim might not be aware of her real form.

Nice candlelight, transfixed by those eyes...( they're up there BTW!)

 

Then she comes closer, her lips part and Oopsie, did I bite you? Giggle...

Wow, that is once nice big mini. Awesome job! Congrats on finishing her!

 

Thank you!

It took a while but thanks to the awesome feedback and support from the forumites here I was pushed to the limits.

 

Actually I just noticed a tiny spot that needs to be corrected.

Will do that this weekend.

A smidge of grey has hit the black, I will smooth that out.

Oooooshessopurty! Fantastic use of color and her skin looks so smooth. Love her!

 

Thx Mel,

 

Glad you like her.

 

And I fixed the little smudge on her side.

She is now all better.

 

Will post the last Pic later.

As Promised the last pic, she had a little smudge of the stoneworks on her top, and I corrected that.

 

So her is Her Darkness in all her new and improved glory... :ph34r:

*clapclapclapclapclapclapclap* She still looks spectacular, Xherman! Love the background you have for her!

 

Thx Wild Mage!!!

 

It's just a thing I printed out from the Internet.

 

She is in my display cabinet dominating all other busts and minis in there.

 

Such a shame Solarwind is out of business now.

I'm so glad I could still get her.

Almost waited too long.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Myyyyyyyyyyyyyyy...

Stunning work.  Now  I know why I have been freezing since I got back from Mexico's Cancun.

I needed a little vampire fire to boil my blood.

Works much better than Tequila Drinks, or straight up !!

Ummmm, freezing temps are beginning to recede !

Great Job !!

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.

      Presenting the Rotten Mummy, as the name suggests he's a Mummy that's going rotten, and he's part of the Egyptian faction for the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      It's a really fun to paint mini that is annoying hard to photograph, but I think I did a decent job on him.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      For my Shifting Sands Project I wanted a Casket of Souls / Altar of the Damned.
       
      I scratchbuilt the altar from foam with the help of a Greenstuffworld rollerpin I gave it an Egyptian look.
       
      The bones/skulls are from the Greenstuffworld Crunchplates
       
      Then I added:

      This is the Bones version.  I used her for an experiment with Contrast paints.  I think it worked ok, but the softer detail gave a less desired effect -- at least on the armor. I had to go over that again with an ink wash.  The red came out very bright.  Maybe I could have gone over that with ink, too, but I liked the vivid contrast. She is a vampire, after all.  I drybrushed a little silver metal for highlights on her armor, looks good in hand, but the flash caught it and it looks like white spots in the pic.

      An experiment with metallic paint.  Not sure I like how he came out, but the players sure won't miss their perception checks for that red armor.  Chopped up his cloak a bit trying to get him on a sculpted base, and the color washed out a bit in the flash.
