Gadzooks!!!! I'm actually painting something again. Here's the bad boy I've chosen this time around:

I actually have a colour scheme in mind after researching other people's work on this one, and have adjusted it according to my own whims.

A quick slather of Reaper Brown Liner as a primer.

And here we have a couple of layers of P3 Sanguine Highlight to bring some proper base colour, might put have to touch up a couple spots. After this: drybrushing!

Off to a good start.

Are you planning on using this in a zombie game? Cause that would be amusing.

No, but in my mind I see a bunch of zombies running after it while Yakety Sax is playing :lol:

 

Either that, or the whole scene is Scooby-Dooed.

Much work was done today:

I did a bunch of layering on this, all for the first time. I started with P3 Sanguine Highlight and added P3 Carnal Pink, then kept adding the latter with each layer, did about 7-8 layers for this one. Then i used Citadel Reikland Fleshshade on it, with a final layer of pure P3 Carnal Pink. I think I'm going to use a watered-down Fleshshade to finish it off, and then start on the legs.

Need to put some shininess to it, to give it that fresh wetness look. Been going over the options for that, we'll see what works. After that is the legs, I was originally going to go with black but perhaps Charred Brown might work better.

Just a touch of work today:

Decided to add my version of magic wash, which is a 50/50 mix of water/Pledge multi-surface finish(formerly known as Future floor polish). I like the results, the shine makes it look more like fresh brains( Just do a Google image search of that if you have a strong stomach, I'm sure you'll agree).

I love the color you came up with for The Brain. TERRIFIC WORK!

For some reason or other, it brings back memories of Zacherley's show...he used a cauliflower for a stand in brain.

Thank you, I've been trying to do highlights but it's utterly pathetic. I have no real idea where to put them, it all looks the same to me. I feel like I'm just screwing it up and I'm going to be angry about it.

Recently I was given advice on how to highlight hair.

 

Since these are basically strains also..it might apply here too..

 

Which means a highlight on te top of the strain and one on the bottom of the strain.

Leaving the middel colour in between..

 

You could try that.

Sorry to hear about the highlighting troubles; they kick my butt, too.

 

I like the effect that you magic wash had on the brain, though. That's marvelous!

Thanks, I won't have any satin varnish until next week, and I wanted to make it look glistening. Intellect devourers are living creatures, so the brain should be wet and pink.

      Well I said it already I have started a lot of wips and I`m painting at all from time to time and nothing gets finished.
       
      Lorna The Huntress is a cool sculpt I ever wished to paint and now finaly I started it. I have got 3 wips already and you missed the first 2 ones and so I made a photo collage for you to see the other wip stages too.
       
      Here you can see what I was talking about already: I start messy. I don`t mind about clean painting at all, but with time it all becomes more clean, finer, it gets more depth, more contrast, more vibrant colours and so on. This is the way I work.
       
      I have no real concept for her and still consider about a base. Ideas are most welcome
       
      I have to link her for nudity I`m afraid and the bad news are: My image hoster compressed the images. Aaaaargh. Images are too small, but I hope you see enough. Next time I can upload single photos to my image hoster and because of a different size they won`t be compressed like this big collage. For the final photos of the finished Miniature I will post a link to my homepage and there you also can see all angles of her. Nothing is finished here and I will go on working out all details more.
       
      As always: All feedback is appreciated.
       
      Link for nudity:

      My first post here! I thought the bones 4 ape men would make good soldiers for my growing demonic army. Still thinking of tweaking some of the smaller details and considering also painting the armored one as a barlgura. Tried to give some texture by dry brushing orange over a black base coat for fur. I also tried to dry brush around the eyes to create a deep red glowing effect.

      C and c welcome but keep in mind I’m pretty new to this!

      I needed some more henchmen to fill out my frostgrave parties, especially some archers which I seem to have in very short supply.  So i Found these while rooting through my drawer of 'I dont know where this goes and put a pretty basic paint job on them.
       
      I needed some minis to fill out the challenge for this month so here they are:


       
      I did try a little freehand on the soldier's shield and played with some of the brighter colors for the dwarf twins so they would stand out.  In the end, basic minis to liven up the frostgrave maps
       
      Thanks for looking!

      A bit of an odd sculpt this one, but lots of fun to paint.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      My husband and I are about to join a campaign to play through the Curse of Strahd adventure for 5e.  My husband is playing as a half-orc sorcerer and I am a human fighter.  We decided to go with 03879: Gon'Tarr Orc Shaman and 14604: Joeliyn Sister of the Blade as our respective PC minis.  They will be the third and fourth minis I have ever painted, the other two being from one of the Learn to Paint kits.
       
      My mini hasn't arrived yet but my husband's has so I've made a little progress on him.  I cleaned him up, glued to a square base, used some green stuff to smooth out his integrated base, primed him, and put some of the base coat colors down.  I've used all Reaper paints so far - their white primer along with Leather Brown for the leather bits, Harvest Brown for the wood, and a hobbled together mix of Camouflage Green, Military Green, and Warrior Flesh for the skin. 
       

       

       
      I plan on doing a base coat of all the colors first to make sure we are both happy with the choices before moving onto washes and highlighting.  My shipment with my mini along with some bone colored paints that I need for Gon'Tarr's skull accessories should be here tomorrow!
