Another WIP for me to do this week. I've got Isla Darkstep, Reaper SKU #02698 which I'm painting up for my final D&D player. This one is going to be painted up to look like a drow. 

 

Anyhow, getting started, I have a couple pics as I got it cleaned and prepped now. Again going with black primer first and then I'll wait until it dries and do some white primer dry-brushed over it to pick out details. I just placed her integral base on a 1 inch circle of wood that I like to use for my bases and then put some procreate around the edges and sculpted the stones to match what was on her base to the best of my limited sculpting ability.

Soon! I need to get her done for d&d friend. I like to wait until primer cures for a day before slapping paint on figures.

I was just thinking of painting this exact mini!  Probably won't get to it for a while, it was more for display than actual gaming. 

 

It will be interesting to see her as a drow, since that was really not my plan.  ^_^

This is one I was looking at for a Pathfinder Rogue / Shadowdancer.  As Ramelle shows her ears, that one was out for the main human disguise... so it was down to Ilsa or Lanelle and Ilsa just has so much more character.

I agree. No likes for just primer! At least show us the stripping of mold lines and flashing. 

 

Get painting. But yes, cure the primer first.

A bit of progress tonight, trying to get this kicked out tonight and finish tomorrow. Want to get working on other projects soon and this one is a quick tabletop job that needs doing.

 

Skin is Dark Elf Triad, the cloak is Monarch Purple with misty grey highlights and using inks to try to brighten it up. The leather base color so far is Dusky Skin. Eyes are Cactus Flower.

Ah! A fine startoff.

 

I really like the overall dark appearance of this paintjob contrasting the glowing eyes.

 

You can literally imagine her rising from the shadows.

 

Great work.

 

I am curious to see her finished.

I agree with the canine glitter cannon. Purple is awesome. 

 

Seriously I once counted all my purple paints, I have 15 purple paints, washes and inks :ph34r:

Jeebus. Okay your high purpliness: which are your favorites? I have the Amethyst/Imperial/Nightshade triad, one old Citadel wash, and a super old Citadel purple. I need more!!!

Progress!

 

I've got the hair and the base to do, and I think I'll try to blend that purple a tad bit better, purple is one of those tough colors for me to get just right and be happy with, especially on such a small figure.

      Picked this guy up at a paint and take somewhere.  He was primed black and this is as far as I got without my glasses. 
       

       
      Fiddled around with him some more recently.  Experimented with some Contrast paints and various glazes.  Calling it done.

      Have painted up the free mini for this month. Lots of character, but not too much detail. Went for a 'goody' colour scheme.

      We're starting a new 5th Ed D&D campaign in a couple weeks.  I decided I might play a rogue, so I wandered down to the LFGS at lunch and looked at what was there (because I obviously have NO miniatures already I could use).
      Spotted the Tabaxi Rogue female pack from WizKids (I like the sculpts and poses of the female figs more than the male ones) so that's going to be my next character.

      Cool fig, primer isn't too bad.  Some nasty mold lines but I only have a week to paint this so I'm not messing with them.  Maybe after I'll clean up the "advanced" version and do a better job on her.
       
      And after some time fiddling with colours.

       
      Well, that looks a mess.  Just figuring out colours.
      Skin base is MSP Alien Flesh.  Cloth is MSPB Succubus Kiss. Had AV Model Air Black handy so used that to start base coating metals.  And leather is MSP Leather Brown.  Still not sure on the leather but I'll give it some time to think about it and maybe try a wash on it.

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      And good evening again!
       
      And quite in contrast to the other figure I just posted, this little thief is quite a bit more sensibly attired, covering herself up relatively decently I'd say.
       
      I think this is also sculpted by Dennis Mize, but not 100%.  
       
      Once again, as per usual, my hardest decision is always colors, so used Terran khaki for her main skin color and kept some cool colors with her wardrobe mostly.
       
      The only thing that didn't really work out like I wanted was that on her boots she had laces going up them, but I just kind of highlighted them a little and didn't do anything with them, because her left leg is bent down so much, even though they were sculpted there I couldn't really reach them very well.  Other than that though pretty happy with how she came out.  
       

       
      She has sort of an odd vest that is open in the front and then ties closed in the back, but at the end of the day that's how she was sculpted, so just obeyed the sculptor!
       
      Once again, may she not be painful upon your eyeballs!
