That's astounding!  I wish the sculptor had left her face exposed though.

 

 

I usually feel that way- but just this once, I really love the veil.  I think that it is because it adhere's to her skin so well that I can actually show some of the face beneath the veil (at least to some extent).

 

I've heard that in traditional sculpting, a veiled face is considered one of the top challenges to an artist.  I've always thought the depiction of translucency in an opaque, non colored medium to be breathtakingly beautiful.

Medusa here is the very first time I've ever seen that sort of technique applied to a mini- otherwise veils tend to be portrayed as opaque pieces (please correct me if there are others out there- I'd love to paint them).  

 

So maybe I'm a bit bias towards her.

 

Last Gencon, I pointed out the AR lineup to a lot of my painter friends (ok, a lot of them already knew how good AR minis are).  I know Marike went home with a Medusa- I'm really excited to see what she does with it (I imagine it will involve a lace pattern on the fabric).  

 

I could talk others into painting up AR minis, but not medusa.

Michelle pointed them out to me as well at ReaperCon. Word of mouth works

Phenomenal work as always sir.

 

I have had this mini for a while, I just pull it out and look at it every once in a while.

 

I am actually just tempted to paint it as a statue just so I can display it, yes, I find the sculpt that appealing.

      This is Thrasios, a triton ranger and one of the players in my D&D 5e Theros campaign. I built this mini in Hero Forge according to the player's description and added my own touches to it. For example, I was inspired by the neon tetra fish in painting the skin and I used Greek hoplite reference pictures to paint the armor.

      Here is my rendition of Pegasus, figure #516 in the Greek Odyssey expansion for the Bones V Kickstarter.
      I love the sense of motion, grace, and power in Julie Guthrie's sculpt.
      This is a resin master figure, not a production piece in Bones plastic. 
       

       

       

       

       
      It took me waaaaay too long to paint this.  I got the figure more than a year ago but I couldn't decide on a color.  I ruled out the traditional "white horse with white wings" but that still left ... well, infinity-minus-one options. 
      I imagine this Pegasus flying along a sunny rocky coast.
      The pale buckskin colors are inspired by a photo of a mustang, and the wings by the juvenile (brown) plumage of some species of gulls, which I found in Sibley's encyclopedic bird book.  When I painted Reaper's peryton (also sculpted by Julie Guthrie), I took my cue from hawk wings, but this time I looked at birds other than raptors.  These wings seem to have a different shape from most hawks or eagles (falcons maybe), and I figured that Pegasus wouldn't have the colors of a carnivore/raptor.
      The turquoise-blue eyes tie in with the color of the water below.
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      Quite large, painted this for my Dad's birthday. He loves to collect hand painted knights, soldiers and such. So I think he will really like it. I could do more with the base, but the birthday is today and no time left. It took me about a month to paint and put together. I kind of like it the way it is, maybe it showcases the rock and the figure better if it is not so busy with other stuff.
       
      The Shield was the hardest part. I am not so great at freehand and then deciding to muck it up with blood and dirt was a really tough decision. I read in quite a few places that the Pegasus was a popular figure found in Roman art (seen in pottery, mosaics and such.) Hopefully I am not too far off the mark historically, but my dad is more into the overall look than historical accuracy.

      The Brass Bull. out of the Bully for you subset in the Bones 2 core set.
      This is a not-Gorgon from D&D. I do not know why Gygax would call this a Gorgon, since it really has nothing to do with the Gorgon sisters from Greek myth. But what it is, is a massive metal bullock that has a petrifying green gas breath attack.
      Even though the Gorgon is described as iron, in that it can be rusty, I did it in bronzey brassey colours.  I gave it a bit of green around the muzzle to look like some residue from it's halitosis.
