A short break to get think about the freehand I am going to do on the cloth that is bunched up under her chair and post these 8 pics of the base. Give me whatever feedback you wish on it and if I have time I'll do what I can to improve it, but here's where it's at right now.

I don't know what to comment. I really like it. everything looks natural.

 

The only thing I was wondering about - looking at the lamp, I just thought - isn't that light bit weak to create such a glowing effect? Shouldn't the lamp be shining a bit brighter?

 

And that guy: Is he looking away from her?

Good call!

 

It's an evil tome with a face on it. :;):

But I agree with Knochensack, I think the lamp should be brighter.

Thanks! I just added more white to it to make it much brighter.

 

I also just finished her cloth and chair, did some touch-ups to her skin to add a bit more shadow in spots, added the Venus dimples that were suggested by Thes earlier in the thread.

 

I need to do her goblet and I'm trying to figure out a good color for her hair.

 

Any suggestions on hair color? I'll give the paints a moment to dry and then work on her goblet, come back and see what you all think about hair color, I started doing brown, but I don't think I like it. Oh, I'll also post a few quick updated pics!

I see - I thought it was a tome containing moral regulations of some sort. Like Grimoire Weiss or so.

 

Regarding the hair color: In my opinion it depends on what kind of person you want her to make and what kind of story you want her to tell. Is she a vamp and know what she wants (for example reading a book about the ways of chastity)? Give her black hair. Is she more the innocent, playful type, let her be blonde.

I decided to go with a crazy magical pattern on her cloth. It looks almost alive, haunted, or filled with crackling magical energy (at least that's what I wish to convey!).

You can see my attempts at her brown hair, I can do better brown hair, but I'm not feeling it. Maybe something more like Anime style? Purple? Bright Pink? Blue? I just don't know.

 

The Base - added more brightness to the lantern as suggested. Should I go up to a brighter color than this?

HAHAHHA! I like you Knochensack, you're funny!

 

The story I'm trying to portray here: She's a mage who is practicing her spells while drinking some wine one fine evening. The books are just idling floating around her as she takes a sip of the wine and studies the book in her lap (the red one with the gold symbol on it will be put in its place).

The cloth looks great, I would just do some glazing in the shadows to deepen them a bit more. The lamp is looking better but I would try to go to pure white unless you have already, it is hard to tell in the photos.

 

For the hair, with the green I would tend towards red but I had a wild idea, don't hate me for it. How about white?

True, and perhaps the shadows between where the light spills onto the floor could be a little more intense?

Good idea! I just did it and it looks great now.

I'll give it a spot of bright white and see how that helps. 

 

Hmm white? Like Xmen's Storm! I could give it a shot, I did silver/grey on Darth Sana recently...

I commented on the hair obove.

 

Magical pattern and the cloth - wow. Outstanding from my point of view. I see what you are aiming at and I agree with your statement.

 

I'd not go for anime-esque hair. You have got so many different colours, some of them quite bright and still all are matching. From my point of view bright hair would kill the overall effect of the characters contrast to the surrounding elements like the cloth, her gloves and shoes and the books. White or gray would not fit to the character. A light blonde tone might be okay, it goes a bit into the red and white part without letting one of them be too dominant. Does that even make sense?

 

From my POV go a bit brighter on the light.

I saw this on facebook and popped over because I had a comment.

 

Before my comment though, as to the hair, I think a deep red would look good.  Not a bright carrot top, a really deep red. I think with the green of her clothes, it would go nicely and wouldn't leap out at you like white or blonde would since the rest is more muted tones - the books, wood, stockings, skin.

 

Now for my comment. While looking at the photos on facebook, it all looks great. The only thing that bothered me a little is the OSL. It looks good, but I think you need to glaze a half-step color transition between the lighter lavender and the purple. It seems too abrupt. That is my only critique. I really like how it is coming along.

 

Edit: In addition to that, speaking of the OSL, not sure that the very edges of the book nearest might need just the smallest glaze of the purple light color.

Yeah, you are right about the hair and having brightness all over the place as it is. Light blonde, she's much more playful as I see her.

Good idea on the glazing of the OSL, I'll do that.

 

An auburn? Hmm, hadn't thought of that, you are right with red and green contrasting and I do have a few things of red in the scene, but nothing the auburn color. I do like to do auburn/redheaded figures. Let's give it a shot!

 

 

Here's the base after the feedback adding more brightness (pure white) to the lamp and darkened the shadows around the OSL-

I guess what you mean is a mixture of despair and resignation.

 

Anyway - whatever you will decide on, I am absolutely looking forward to seeing her finished. But now it's time for me to check out if my bed is still where I left it. Almost 5 a.m. I should really go to sleep ...

I guess she is just so playful because she obviously is drunk! In reality she is a very shy and normal girl, But when she gets drunk - oh boy - take cover, books! (said the manual of moral principles - I mean - look at his face)

      Sophie at the Well of Lost Memories was my RC 2019 entry.  I posed her on a sculpted base, reading through a stack of old diaries and journals written by those who have gone before us.  She earned a bronze award.

      Presenting Mr. Lovely Locks (aka Gadrock), a character from the game Kingdom Death:- Monster. He's prepared to face the unspeakable horrors lurking in the darkness with nothing more than a jawbone knuckleduster and an overgrown fringe.
       
      Really pleased with this one, I'm happy with how his skin turned out and I didn't make a mess painting all those cuts he's acquired. 
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Some NSFW minis on the KS page, images not included here
       

      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a medieval fantastic skirmish game in which you direct a Spearhead (name given to your miniatures team). These Spearheads are composed of anthropomorphic animals of 54mm (this is an indicative value, many species are larger).
      The figures are sold unassembled and unpainted.
      It's an ambitious project where you can choose from four different factions from the start. A rules book will detail all phases of the game, as well as equipment, spells and scenarios. A double-sided battle mat completes the game material.
      You can discover the universe and follow most heroes in a novel already available in French (it's a good way to start learning!): Khârn-Ages T1: The Embrasement.
      In KHÂRN-ÂGES, you can modulate your compositions without changing miniatures! Indeed a same figurine can correspond to several LEVELS of profiles, and you can equip it as you wish, you have the possibility to play it with different characteristics while changing its weapons and its equipment, or to have access to many different spells for magicians. KHÂRN-ÂGES is a scenario game, it is not about exterminating your opponent (even if it's feasible sometimes!), but fulfilling your goals to win.
      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a game that only requires a few miniatures to play, so you will not have a huge budget to plan to get started and buy your 500 Krowns of heroes to build your first Spearhead: the cost of recruitment of each mini proposed in this campaign is indicated below each model, it can be modulated by the equipment that will be available in the rulebook.
      This campaign offers you to acquire the figurines, the rules, the play mat to fully enjoy your fun experience from the start. The rules are easy to understand and very permissive, but the level of strategy is very high and will seduce the most demanding players. You can discover the fighting engine on our YOUTUBE channel (with English subtitles).
      Last but not least, KHÂRN-ÂGES is a 100% French game, the entire project is developed in the north of France, 40 km separate the workshop of creation and production of our paper printer.
      To date, after nearly 3 years of development, we are proud to present most of the miniatures that will be available during this campaign, the others are being modeled.
      Rules and profile cards have been tested (by our team and a number of seasoned Briskars players). They are currently finalized and in the process of being formatted.

      If we decide to go through a crowdfunding campaign, it's because this project can not succeed without you!
      TGCM is a modest company but has always kept its commitments and has created a substantial community around its first game, Briskars. However, the costs of such an adventure are much higher than those that allowed us to launch our first game.
      In addition to the design phase, the production and molding of figurines, there are many items related to the creation of a game.
      Your contributions will allow the printing of books and profiles and equipment cards, the modeling, the production and packaging of minitures, the control of the production line in our workshop to guarantee you the best quality and the development (we hope you will reach these levels) of many game accessories.
      The goal we are hoping to reach may seem important, but it reflects the reality of the costs and charges we face.
      Achieving this goal will allow the birth of KHÂRN-ÂGES, not to end our days in the sun!
      We are counting on you all to reach it and bring the world of Safar to life...

      Khârns
      Proud and bellicose, they are the archetype of the warrior people, but they are far from having the same character. Their king gone crazy and paranoid after having tortured his people for too long is on the verge of being overthrown, the nobles are slipping into profit and debauchery at King-Khârns, the capital, and some, like Prince Baudry and his brave Paladins remain upright to the point of wanting to overthrow the established order.
      However, all swear by blood and steel, the secular worship of this people. They have a brutal and organized fighting style, but are distinguished mainly by their diversity of profiles: from the heavy armors worn by paladins to the rapid attacks of the advanced vanguards, they have no real weaknesses except the valor of their fighters. They are the stability that a player preferring to fight back will particularly like.   Size 75mm / Base 50mm   Size 70mm / Base 40mm   Size 65mm / Base 50mm   Size 54mm / Base 50mm
