She really is a beautiful miniature...I would be a bit intimidated myself. Have FUN with the Girl.

Thanks for the enthusiasm folks!  I've been wanting to paint this figure for awhile.  I kept running into the I'm not good enough to paint her the way I want mindset.  Then it occurred to me... I can buy another!  So I broke her free of her blister and slapped on some primer.  I've decided to go for a dark skin tone in green cloth.  Not sure how it will go...  Picture later.

Ok progress, of sorts.  I'm definitely not very practice at this particular skin tone.  But her is the result,  Started with a base of RMS Mahogany Brown,  Then Highlighted up to RMS Olive Skin, with a glaze to smooth out.  Then further highlighted with mix of Olive Skin and RMS Lenin White.

The only mistake I think you made... was that you only worked the skin on her face. Glad you wrote down what colors you used! :lol:

 

But no, she is looking good. I like the way her skin tones read.

@Thes Hunter Thanks, but I'm a bit of a messy painter.  I knew I would get green all over her arms from when I started her dress.

 

Speaking of starting her dress.  Here is a picture of her dress base coated.  How's this for green?

More work on her Dress.  I used scale 75's greens for this dress.  I have one thing to say, the folds, yee gosh, the folds.  I then rebase coated the skin areas that got covered with the green to clean up the look.  Funny thing about camera's I looked the stomach part of her dress as I painted her and saw no real contrast.  Now it looks like it need fixin.  Ah well...

 

Here is where I stand:

      Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter.
       
      Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

      This is the end result of me trying ~2.5 sources of light for OSL. Red from magic runes below, teal from a flame in hand, and some moonlight from above.
      The character is our magic user (archivist/wizard/mystic theurge for Wee Jas), who got pretty beat up last session - but he got better. Hence title "revived". His familiar is an Aussie magpie, which was so vexing to paint, because instead of just a black bird, she has some spots. Gah!
      The character is pale, with black hair, and wears black and gray.... so I had a bit of an adventure trying to work around that too.
      The figure is a converted version of Dark Sword's Stephanie Law "Male Mage". I took it off the base and put it on a new one (I think MicroArtStudio?). I also filed off the tiny beard to make it just a little more different. I then took off the staff, and took the Bird on a Rock from that kickstarter and put it on the hand. That thing is on there with superglue, greenstuff, and prayers.
      The red OSL specifically wouldn't have been possible with my Reaper reds; that's Kimera paints. I tried Reaper Blood Red and it just wouldn't go bright enough. On the palette, it looks the same as Kimera's "The Red", but The Red is just sooooo much more vibrant. I thinned the heck out of it and started glazing it in.
       
      Weakest point I think is the bird, but eh, that's okay.
       
      Photos aren't perfect, but still better than what I used to get. Going to fiddle around with stuff again soon.

      This chaos toad was another one of my ReaperCon entries, this time in the Painter's category. As I had multiple entries in the category, only one was judged and this was not the one chosen. Even though it was not the one judged, it is one of my favorites that I have painted recently. It is a fantastic sculpt by @TaleSpinner with fun details like the shrunken head and turtle shell canteen.

      It took me ages to choose a colour scheme for the Valkeeri Leader. I eventually decided on Army Painter Shining Silver to go with the whole pulp scifi theme, and VGC Warlock Purple because why not. I was worried the silver bits of her uniform would look like armour instead of metallic cloth but I think it's turned out OK. For once I managed to get her eyes to a decent standard and her hair came out looking good too. Her gun is VMC Brass, toned down with VGC Sepia Wash and Liquitex matte varnish. Her lips are a tiny dab of VMC Brown Rose.
       
      I forgot about her cape until I was finished with her, so it got a few thin coats of Warlock Purple and then began the fun and games of gluing it to the figure. Four attempts later I got it in what I hope is the right position and touched up the purple.

      I painted Devil Girl's clothing in Vallejo Black and thought, "God, that's boring". So I added 1/3 Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue to the black and redid her coat. Adding the blue makes the black much richer, and I washed the black over with Army Painter Blue Tone. Her skin was done with Vallejo Flat Red, Red and Vermillion. Her hair is black and drybrushed with Vallejo Royal Purple. The lava is Liquitex Modelling Paste and the slabs are just plasticard. Her eyes took FOREVER to get right, which was frustrating as hell as they're just yellow with a thin black line.
       
      The paint scheme and base are shamelessly ripped off this one by @TheOldGuard, although he/she can do OSL and I can't (and wasn't even going to attempt it).
