How about some scrolls? Rolled up wet palette or wadded up (to break down the fibers) printer paper dyed in strong coffee or simply painted and tied with string, cord, or ribbon (wine bottle foil). Some could be unrolled as well. Markings up to you. And a wine bottle would seem to be mandatory...

I actually dug a scroll out of my bits box as well as a wine goblet and this cool little table. I'm going to play with the locations of things and see what I like best. ::D:

for stocking google hosiery type things and get ideas for how the color changes based on anatomy.  I won't make you actually try on the blasted things, but as a girl occasionally required to wear them, the general rule is the color is darker around the ankles or thinner areas of the leg. places where the fabric is stretched like the thighs, knees and calves the color is closer to your skin tone.

Another thing that seems to add realism are wrinkles- they'll gather under the knees and at the ankles.  I tend to mix my hose color with my skintone for a base and highlight up towards my skintone and shade down towards the hose color.  Probably easier to go with something we see a lot like black or even white hose.  When Rhonda paints sheer she'll paint the "clear" areas with the skintone first, then shade in the fabric color.  That might be easier and more intuitive!

 

I suspect if you take your safe filter off the google you may find more interesting hose images...

Very good advice, thanks Erin! I'll definitely apply it with this one. ::D:

 

So I've got the idea and inspiration and have decided to go with the floating books idea, so I've affixed the books in floating positions around the figure, added a scroll to the top of the small pile and placed the book in her lap (not glued yet) and the goblet of wine in her hand (again not glued yet). She also has not been affixed in place yet, so I can move her around on the scene a little bit and paint her easier.

 

Anyhow enough talk, here's the scene as I see it in my head and what I will probably go with unless someone has a better idea for the layout where she should be placed in the scene and if that goblet should stay or go.

 

Please give your honest opinions!

They could go with his pom poms and cheer leader outfit!

 

She definitely looks to be wearing stockings, as well as high heels, so I doubt she just got out of bed / the bath....

you could have her hand glowing and the books held in place by some swirly strands of greenstuff the same color to make the spell effect? it would let you play with OSL.

I think my only suggestion at this point would be that I think the two open floating books should be facing her so that it looks like she may be trying to read/find something within their pages.

 

Oh, I am also not sure about the goblet, as it is right now it looks as though it would be pouring down the front of her.

Agreed, I don't care for the goblet actually being in her hand, especially since her hand isn't really sculpted that way so it gives the impression of a doll holding a cup. Having the goblet and possibly a pitcher within arm's reach would sell the idea just as well, I think.

 

Huzzah!

The goblet does not look right, as the Boot said....

Maybe have it floating as well, as if she was summoning it?

 

If you do leave it that way, be sure that you put a tiny bit of color in the cup, as if she was contemplating the lees of the glass...

Well to be fair, the goblet is just propped there in her hand and laying at an angle that looks like it'd tip over. If I keep it in her hand, it will be upright and I'll add some realistic water tinted dark red. 

 

Going to prime everything that isn't primed tomorrow and sand and prime the plinth as well. Let that dry and then zenithal prime white.

I like the tipped angle look, it will mean you have to paint wine spilling on her book and body though..

Hah!

 

that could be very distracting for her and the viewer!

Can't believe I found this before it was finished. Watching with great interest, I actually can't recall seeing any Kingdom Death WIPs, even though I keep hearing about the figures.

Thanks! I hope to keep everyone distracted with my WIP of her :;):

Better set out some fencing and or wolf traps when you get further along...

Otherwise you'll have Technicolor wolf hair and drool all over the place...:zombie:

Good idea!

 

 

Today's progress thus far:

 

I just sanded down the rough-cut plinth I had so I can now stain prime and paint it or stain it black. 

 

I decided to keep the goblet in her hand after thinking about it for the last day, but I adjusted the angle so that it's upright and not "spilling" over the top. I also used my hobby knife to carve into the goblet some more and actually allow for a tiny pour of realistic water tinted dark red for her wine. I'll show some pics in a little bit after I get done priming everything with the airbrush.

      Thought some of you might find this of interest:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cultofpaint/deorgard-by-cult-of-paint
       
      At Cult of Paint we've taught painting classes to hundreds of people all over the world. We make painting tutorials for YouTube and Patreon. We have signature series airbrushes with renowned manufacturer Harder & Steenbeck AND we produce a 54mm sci-fi miniatures range and bust collection that has won multiple international painting awards. Now it's time for something really cool............ OUR FIRST FANTASY MINIATURES RANGE!!!!! 
      Dræfend bust painted by David Colwell @davecolwell725 Ever since we created our sci-fi miniatures range we've had the bug for creating awesome models for people to enjoy painting. We LOVE fantasy settings and wanted to create our own world to explore the characters so often associated with fantasy and folklore, but with our own interpretations. And so Deorgard was born, with the elves being the first race we wanted to bring to life as gorgeous miniatures and busts......
      Heargeard bust painted by Rodrigo Ciprés @rodrigo.akore Releasing the range in one go ensures we create tonnes of excitement while also enabling painters to get their favourite models from day one with no long gaps between characters coming out. And it means we can crack on with working on more miniatures for you to add to your collections!
      As we begin to explore this wild land we wanted to introduce some elves from different regions of Deorgard.  PLAY  
      In Heargeard we meet a woodsman. A guardian of the forests and the dark places where some of the most ancient parts of the land still endure.
      Heargeard concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by David Colwell ( yes that base is insane ) As the trees give way to the grasslands a hunter needs not only patience but the frightening speed and savagery to survive. Dræfend is one such elf who excels here. She has learned to hunt as part of a pack, accompanied by one of the great wolves that make their homes in the foothills nearby.
      Dræfend & Wulf concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Dræfend & Wulf painted by Ruben Martinez @rma_ruben_martinez The land rises sharply and great peaks soar towards the sky. Here we find another symbiosis of elf and beast. Whilst Sceotend may be blind she does not lack sight, her hawk's third eye providing unrivalled clarity and vision.
      concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Sceotend painted by Richard Gray @daemonrich An equally harsh environment can be found in the vast desert that covers much of the centre of Deorgard. In this ever-changing and ruthless sea of sand, those such as Læl's word is law. She is judge and executioner, swift and merciless at dealing out punishment to any transgressors. 
      Læl concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Læl painted by Andy Wardle @andywardle_artwork As primal and challenging as the landscape of Deorgard is there are still places where societies have settled and thrived. Guardians such as Indryhten stand sentinel over sacred places and those elected by their peers to rule these bastions of advancement.

      Story
        Signum Workshop is a division of Signum Games company that specializes in the creation of high-quality fantasy miniatures in STL format for self-printing.
      Signum Games have been creating and casting fantasy resin miniatures for several years, and our miniatures have a lot of admirers from all over the world. 3D printers are nowadays becoming more and more popular, therefore we decided to join the market and make our miniatures more accessible to you.
      The imagination of our artists and modellers have no borders, and sometimes there are just too many new characters (or variations of one character) for us to be able to cast all at once in resin. But we don't want new characters to just gather dust on the hard drive and wait for their time to come. After all, now we finally can share all our new products with you!
        All of our miniatures have 32mm scale, which was not a suitable scale for some board games. All our models in files will be pre-assembled and have an option of individual parts.
        You can learn all about the quality of our models and to print files simply by clicking on the link and download a free model!
          The Signum Workshop project is only at the very beginning of its journey, so we will be happy to see your support, questions, advice, and comments on Patreon! 
      By supporting us on Patreon, every month you will get access to a new set of STL files of our newest miniatures.
        Dear friends,
      this set introduces 4 factions that will appear on our Patreon in the future.
      You will meet Plague fighters from the far East, proud warriors from the hot South, harsh warriors from the cold North, and adventurers from the mountains of the West.

      A new Kickstarter from Durgin Paint Forge coming late September / early October.
      Wasn't a backer of the previous ones, but I don't think there's been any issues.
       
      They've been working away at this one for a while, so most of the minis have already been previewed on their blog.
