Deadlands Noir: Femme Fatale


Recommended Posts

Excellent job, especially with the highlights and shade!

 

You need more practice, though. I'll send you all my Savage Worlds miniatures that you can paint and send back to me. :lol:

What a way to introduce yourself!

 

Great job!

Both the face and the dress are excellent!

 

The only advice I can give, use a neutral background for your pics to show off the mini even better!

Wowzers!  That is SHARP detail work!  Pretty good photography, too, and apparently without a lightbox (since I see a cutting mat in the background).  What kind of camera are you using?

I am currently just using my iPhone camera. I don't have a light box set up yet, not in the budget. But I hope to have one soon since I plan to be painting a lot more. I am trying to slowly ease myself into the hobby again, and since I have a habit of purchasing things and never using them, I want to make sure I am spending smartly. :) 

 

I do have one question, if anyone is able to answer. I put a coat of matte varnish on her last night so I could start working on her base, but this morning I woke up and it is pretty glossy. Did I do something wrong? I know that the directions say to do two coats, and I've only done one at this point. But what is causing it to be so glossy still? Did I put the layer on too thick, or do I just need to add the second one to get the matte finish? If I did mess up the application, is there any way for me to fix it at this point, or is it doomed to be forever shiny? ::(:

 

Thank you all, again, for the positive feedback and suggestions. I really appreciate it! 

 

Cheers!

Oh, that's some lovely detail work right there.  I'm really reluctant to offer advice because you're producing much better quality than I am, but if I had to pick one thing:  your contrast seems a little flat, especially on the skin.  I'd try and take the highlights higher, and the shadows deeper.

 

But for this figure?  I'd leave her exactly where she is, she looks wonderful.
