03507: Collin Coalshadow, Thief by Cyr


Recommended Posts

I should have taken some pictures before the beard went on. 

 

The face was BEAUTIFUL. It looked rather like my fairy lady's face. He was gorgeous. The most feminine face I could have possibly done... on a dude. A dude with a twisted smile, but still. 

 

So I tried to cover it with some stubble. Looked a bit off at the lips. So to conceal that his lips are a bit funky, I went "heck with it" and gave him a twirly mustache and a goatee along with the five o'clock shadow. 

 

Did it work? Or does he still look like a lady with a stick-on beard? Nothing wrong with androgyny but that isn't my intention with this figure either. How can I get him to look like a young cocky dude thief? More eyebrow? AHHHHH Painting dudes is difficult.

The original face before beard was so good I could have done Youtube make-up tutorials for women off it. Great... but that wasn't the plan.

He actually reminds me of George Michael and certain other guys who, though being less than typically masculine feature-wise, have strikingly thick/dark beards.  The guy from The Office (maybe) who was also in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Maybe a less thick stubble would help--just a light wash of beard-color?

I glazed over the stubble with the skin tone color to tone down the sidebeard. I like it - makes the goatee stand out more. Thanks!

He brings to mind a few Guys who were more pretty than handsome. Davy Jones, David Cassidy, & Michael Smith come to mind; Michael Smith is/was my Brother in Law. When he was a young man he looked like David Cassidy's better looking kid brother....now he looks like Jackie Cooghan (Uncle Fester). All that aside, there is something swashbuckling handsome about the Guy that brings to mind the Three Musketeers. This has UBERCOOL potential. OUTSTANDING WORK!

      Merisiel, Iconic Rogue.  The original artwork is very good but this is one of the early Bones models that did not translate well to the medium.   She flops over, the weapons did not come out well, and much of her detail is guesswork.  I even had to sculpt her a nose because she didn't come with one.  I tried to follow the artwork more or less, but it wasn't worth the effort to spend too much time on her.

      I am Working on my Adventuring kids. I liked the idea of having these Minis for my Kids.
      Currently it is the thief. Well, my Girls dont like thieves so much, so it will be more something else. We will see.
       
      I startet with some green. Looked a little scary.

      Not happy with this one, the primer made her gritty, it took me a long time to finally finish her.
      Oh well, another mini done, not my best stuff but her she is anyway.

      This was a fun and easy paint job. He comes with a variety of arms and weapon options so you can customize the figure. (and the extra arms are nice for conversions)

      The last of my player characters I painted up for Frostrun is Ophelia Pokitz, a young halfling with sticky fingers.  They're represented here by Bailey Silverbell.
       
      Ophelia was a fun mini as well.  Was my first time painting a humanoid with large facial features, which made it a lot easier to bring definition to the nose, lips, and eyes.  I think I even hit the cheeks with a bit of blush.  I also had fun trying to make their cloak look like it was made of fur.  The result is acceptable, but might also just look snow covered.  You can be the judge.  I also enjoyed painting a rogue that was both colorful, but subdued.  The dark greens and magentas add some much needed life to the otherwise dark mini, in my opinion.
       

       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      Ophelia Pokitz is what you would call a troubled teen.  Orphaned at a young age, Ophelia spent much of their childhood passing from orphanage to orphanage, always finding a way to get kicked out.  They eventually left the system and struck out on their own, traveling to some of the larger cities in search of a better life.  Over the years, Ophelia has learned to use their small size and tiny hands to "reposes" any valuables that aren't bolted down.  This habit has put them on a wanted list in many towns across the countryside.  Pushed further north, Ophelia has found themselves in the town of Harpy's Hearth.  Ignorant of their southern reputation, and full of gold-carrying adventurers, this could be a great place for Ophelia to catch a break and line their own pockets.  It could also be a great place to find a new family.  If they can survive the darkness to come.
