I love the skin tones and the way he looks. Also these pictures really bring out his skin tones even better than the ones in your WIP.

 

I like how he looks, worried, and maybe sorry. Pingo pegged it with the word Pathetic.... but yet he is menacing. It's like he knows he is a vile little worm, and he would rather not be so vile, but it is what he is, and he doesn't know if he wants to take the effort to change. 

 

So yeah, can't wait to see how he does at Reaper con!

It looks pathetic, and ghastly, and dreadful.  Nicely painted and nicely displayed as well, even to the label on the plinth.

Thanks all!

 

Yes, I'm very happy with how the skin tones worked out on him and that I was able to evoke feelings from the viewers. That means a lot to me and helps inspire me to do more projects with the same kind of emotions.

*** The Countess sends her regards***

 

You hit the mark with this one!

Awesome skintones, great facial expression, even the label on the plinth is awesome.

 

I love how you captured the emotion in this one.

He does look like he is full of regret, sorrow, and at the same time he revels in being evil.

 

*** I'm so sorry, I didn't really wanted to hurt you but I needed your blood, and you're sssooooo taassttyyyy****

GORGEOUS work! The additional highlights and shades really make this tip-top and competition worthy. An amazing painter continuing to create amazing work. The EYES are well done and capture the despair of a lost soul.

Excelsior!

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      Using the long weekend to my advantage, I got a decent paint in on this guy.  Meet Gronk.
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       

       
       
      Trying to do a more comic-style paint job, I did less wash and more highlights with bold color. 
       
      Wins:
      *  The two-toned leathers look fun and eye catching where they need to be.  
      *  Staying to as simple color-scheme as possible helped me draw this one to a close.  (Brown, Orange, Green, ivory, red)
      *  The eyes came out really good and I finally managed one of those little reflective white dots in the corner of the right eye.  
      *  Opting to not color-up every single ribbon or fold as a new color and simply stick to the simple palette helped me keep pushing forward.
      *  The shield came out great!  If you look close on the edges and near the dents, there's small orange highlights that are really faint.  Probably my favorite small thing on this model.  
       
      Misses:
      *  Not digging his green skin highlights.  Did a Green base, then ink wash, then went back over with same green, then brought up by adding white. Placement of the highlights is off as well as not understanding light.  Crux for me. 
      *  Metal sword over all has a good look to it.  Can't seem to use the Vallejo Metals for edge highlighting.  Too runny.  Need to swap to regular metal paints and use edge of brush.  Love the Metals, but they are so thin and spread so quickly. 
      *  Struggled with doing boots.  I want to darken them, but using black just seems too easy.  When they are super dark, I can't figure out how to bring the color up.  Lame.
      *  On the dino skull on his shoulder something bad happened.  I went over it with bone color like 3 times to make sure it was thick enough.  Then did a wash to bring out the dips and dirty it up a little, but I guess pulled up the bone color before it dried - even though it was sitting for 15 or more minutes before I hit it.  That sucked.  Fixable, but not sure why I hate that color so much.
      *  Learning how to be 'subtle' is something I need to develop.  It's almost like I'm needing to see big swings in the color to make  my eye train to it being different, but the reality is subtle would be better.

      ******************
       
      Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them.
      Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary.
      Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked.
      People no longer believed in the supernatural.
      Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet.
      When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer.
      He would show them!
      He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again!
      Once more the vile Undead would flee before him!
      And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order..

      In which we meet the third of my Brides of the Vampyre, and a very unpleasant Nosferatu.

      "Dracula's America" once again tempted me to get the Red Hand Coven 3-pack solely on the strength of the Broodsire, Max Orlok here. This spindly, long-clawed bloodsucker with the face of a naked mole rat is a particularly perfect horror. Very simple paint job too, mostly Vampiric Flesh and GW Snakebite Leather. What an expression! what body language! 


      this is a bad shot, but a good nod to the Murnau film.
       

       
      More: 
       
      You will notice I got the column from 01350, Siobhana, painted up in greenish marble, with a couple of bats attached. 
       
      Here is 01643, the Ghost of Christmas Present, playing the role of a Bride of the Vampyre. More work with sheer effects on this lady, whose dress is very form-fitting indeed in places. 
       

       

       

       
      Here are the three Brides, each neatly color-coded. We have seen Jahenna (02632) and Siobhana (01350) before. I gave them a bit of a touch-up using the advice given on Siobhana's post. The difference is minor but definitely in the direction of improvement.
       

       

       
       
       
      And the whole horrible crew!

      Sea Storm is a resin female pirate bust from Altores Studios in 1/9th scale. The piece is basically the head/body, the hat, pipe, and a loop earring. I replaced the earring with copper wire. Apart from some mold trash where the coat and torso meet, there were no major issues. Primed with my dwindling supply of Floquil Railroad Colors' Gray Primer and painted with Reaper acrylics.
