When I first saw the thread title, I misread it as 'Darth Santa'...I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.

 

While this is obviously not that, it still looks very interesting. Very cool conversion work on the horns!

"Air Brush". Sorry about that. That's the cool kid way of referring to it in airbrush circles.

Coming along nicely. Laid down some nice red and black base coats. I see a few spots I need to even up, but very happy so far!

The face is looking awesome already. Are you planning on sculpting any hair around the horns? There are a couple horns that look glued onto the hair right now and could use a little blending in.

Thank you ::D:

 

That's the grey primer, I was very careful not to smoosh anything into the hair for those horns. The painting will blend it in when I get to that point.

Touched up the right eye a bit I saw from the pic that there was a bit of unevenness in the top right corner white area. I also touched up the eyelids so they are black again as I had gotten the white of the eye color on them. 

 

Just hit the horns with some red around the bottoms and then put a stained ivory color on them, a couple coats. Then after that, I went ahead and used my new super-duper cool sealer trick - 1:1 Reaper Brush-on sealer (semi-gloss) : Liquitex matte brush-on varnish. This makes a really good sealer that has little to no shine whatsoever, yet it is as strong and durable as the reaper sealer normally is. 

 

Trying to decide what color to do the hair and outfit. 

 

The hair I was kinda thinking something really crazy like a metallic purple look (kinda anime) and then the outfit with blacks and reds or blacks and purples.

 

Any thoughts on hair and outfit from anyone/everyone?

Worked on her hair last night. Going for a silver hair with bluish hints to it. 

 

I like it, had some help from Clever Crow as he gave me some awesome advice.

Maul's black markings are ritual tattoos and not just face make-up. If her hair is silver....wouldn't her eyebrows be silver too?

No eyebrows on her species. :;):

 

ETA: plus I think that'd really detract and distract and screw up my finished face! ::P:

Building myself a customized from scratch plinth to display her on, will upload some pics in a little bit. Gotta finish a few parts first!

 

I'm 95% done with her, a few touch-ups here and there, going to add tiny freehand artwork to her scabbard (probably flowers as she does have a hidden softer side), and then seal her up and attach to this plinth.

 

Hopefully everyone likes what I'm building and it doesn't distract/detract from the bust, but rather enhances and helps tell a story.

      This is the Werewolf Queen bust from White Wolf Tavern, 3D printed.

      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.

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.
