Alright, ReaperCon is just around the corner and I really need to get cracking on my entires. I already have a thread up for my planned Painter's entries and I will be doing separate ones for  my Open

Finished the hair, hands are mostly done and they look better with paint on them, and started the lightsaber.  

So after much deliberation between smooth blends and attempting texture, I have reached a verdict. It was a difficult decision as while smooth blends are what I know, I wanted to add some interest to

Star Wars music just came into my head. Thank you. 

 

Well I guess that means I nailed the Jedi look. :lol:

First thing I thought: Why not make a Twi'lekk out of her?

 

Great conversion.

 

Thanks! Great idea, I can see sculpting lekku out of his hair but I think I will leave it as is.

OK, this figure got much more interesting with this conversion.   Nice work can't wait to see the progress.

 

Yeah, it's not one of my favorites but was perfect for the conversion.

Woah! it's such a simple modification, yet SO awesome!! Great work already, I can't wait to see what you do with it.

 

Thanks! I am really excited to do this one and will be starting on the base soon. I have stalled on the painting as I have not decided if I want to attempt texture or stick with smooth blends.

That's a mighty good lookin' base! 

 

Thanks! It was fun putting it together. I had a general idea of what I wanted to do but it evolved as it went along. I had originally thought to put a window where the shield is but was worried it would distract from the mini too much. Luckily once I got the etched brass sheet out, everything fell into place.

That etched sheet looks good. 

 

I keep forgetting that I have a bunch of those...

I keep forgetting too. I backed both Etch-Master Kickstarters and I think this is the first time I have really used them. I replaced a sword once but I think that was it.

So after much deliberation between smooth blends and attempting texture, I have reached a verdict. It was a difficult decision as while smooth blends are what I know, I wanted to add some interest to an otherwise boring brown. Since his cloak is all there really is, I felt it needed something more. I played with different ideas mainly bringing in different colors, which I still plan on doing, or freehand, which did not feel right. Well after blocking in some shading, I decided took a leap and made a decision: TEXTURE! And so it begins. It is really rough right now but I am really happy with the direction it is going and surprisingly my Army Painter Psycho brush is perfect for it. 

 

What do you'll think?

      So when I unpacked this Big Boi in 2017  I thought he would look really cool without wings.  but I'm it will be a lot of careful work to carve off the joins and resculpt him,  I just don't think I'm ready.  In February I did the scales for my verocthulu conversion, and thought "I could have done that better."
      So this is better.  
       
      This Dragon will be the colors or earth.   Burnt Umber base, and a hide scattered with Burnt Sienna, Tusk Ivory, and Leather Brown with ochre and NNM gold colors on the belly. 
      perhaps some cool gray or blue washes in the shadows.   The scales will be individually shaded, and the hide below staying the color of brown liner, or umber in the well lit areas. 
       
      So far its been about 4 hrs of work in sculpting, cleaning, gluing and mold line removal.
      it took 45 min just to cover him in brown liner.  He is a really big dragon, and I have no idea how long this is going to take. 
       
      but im getting a little obesessed - I don't want to schedule a meeting or go grocery shopping, I want to add more paint... 
      this feels like how I ended up with a dragon named Insomnia - who was painted almost entirely between 10pm and 7 am.   I kept waking up with new color ideas. 
      Or the DDS2 dragon who I spent 2-4 hours a day painting for a solid week, and another hour a night for the week after.  
       
      The last picture is my inspiration for the scale colors - the eyes will be much simpler than this.

      Good day everyone, I will share here my progression on a project I wish to do for a long time. I already know all the parts I'll be using for this diorama. Starting with the carefree 03082 Ingrid sculpted by Derek Schubert (I'm converting her as a svirfneblin prospector), accompanied by her faithful familiar the 14453 hunting cat sculpted by Sandra Garrity. They are taken as prey by a 03602 stone lurker sculpted by Kevin Williams. I will also add a 02018 bat from the familiar pack 1 hanging somewhere on the rock wall. I already worked on Ingrid. I removed the base and give her a pickaxe. I made her tool with a paperclip and a piece of scrap metal. This all-project idea started with the gemstone she’s holding in her left hand.

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      Here is Lashana, bad-elf female warrior-wizard. I was inspired by a movie I saw recently.  Really enjoyed working with the red and orange colors.  I like how non-traditional and energizing the color scheme is.

      Nearly two years after I started a thread for showing off the figures of my Pathfinder Society characters, I present the second figure.
      (For that thread about the first character, click here: link.)
       
      This is Sister Ayano, a kitsune archer (level 8 now: paladin 5 of Shelyn / zen-archer monk 3).
      I did some extensive conversion to the elf archer Caerwynn, from the Warlord line.
       
      Here is the finished Ayano:

       
      You can see the Work-in-Progress thread for her here: link.
       
      You may have noticed the concept art for two kitsune figures in the "Eastern Legends" stretch-goal from the recent Bones III Kickstarter.  I'll be sculpting those two.  So if you like the way Ayano the kitsune looks and you wish Reaper made others figures like her ... well, you're in luck (sort of).
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek
