77369: Bones translucent Shadow & 03027: Spectre WIP

Recommended Posts

I have 2 of the clear bones shadows and 1 of the original spectres in metal. I might pick up another bones one.

I'll be trying to paint these a few different ways, so they'll be distinguishable, but also similarly enough that they might be thought of as a unit.

 

The metal spectre will be painted as a solid being, doing the reverse dry-brush, and glow-in-the-dark medium.

One of the bones minis will use magenta, purple, payne's grey, prussian blue, dioxazine purple, maybe a pthalo and some warlord purple, and spectral glow for solid paints. I am going to do some experimenting.

 

This will probably be done slowly through march or april

 

I may do some zombies really quickly to go along with all this.

Sounds cool, have always been curious about the clear bones figures and how well they'll work.  Will be watching this!

Some stuff came up and I got delayed. Here's a pic after 3 days of 15 minute sessions.

Freak Flex red (magenta) and purple translucent tints.

It's very reflective at the moment but I think you'll see some lighter areas than others.

Only one quick session today. I tried to line... It didn't work so well. On a whim I did a little highlighting of the clothing, wet brush style. I like it, not sure what I'm going to do now. I might continue with pink/purple and leave it at that.

I'm mostly done on the first one minus eyes and filling in the base. Soon I'll post the last few photos of this first one before I move on to #2.

Sometimes it's good to remember how far we've travelled. Also, the guy on the left glows in the dark a tiny bit (not enough to photo, but I'll try).

The painted one isn't as transparent as I hoped, but you can still see through. I'm going for more of that with #2

So I can confirm that #1 on the left, above, glows in the dark. But after 1 hour of direct light, and being too faint to photograph, it's never going to come up.

#2 Got a bit of work for the first time in forever.

I had an initial drybrush of Spectral Glow

Didn't like it, so I re-applied the inks. Didn't like that (so I didn't even take pictures).

Then re-applied Spectral Glow. Didn't like that either, but that's where we are.

Outside of touching up the chest, the eyes, the forehead, and mouth with inks... any thoughts on how to rescue this?

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.

      I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals.  It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes.  I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint.
      Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast.  C&C welcome.

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.
