I'd asked for some advice on this mini on the tips and advice sub board and it was really useful and enjoyable to discuss a mini as I worked on it.
I really like this sculpt and the characterisation and my concern had been that I wanted a bright, clean style and palette. This isn't my usual style so it was good to run through things. I used wash (aka liquid skill aka gloop gloop gloop) less and highlighted more.
She will be used for skirmish and mass battle games. I painted a Bones version of her terribly some time ago so may need to buy the metal version of her, dismounted.
Have nearly finished her, I think, but I am scared about shading her by using a wash. I might just work up more highlights.
On the other hand if I did a careful, weak black wash, there would be some extra definition. I think brown or sepia would just dull everything down.
What do people think?
Not seen many painted examples of this mini, which is odd because I love the pose and demeanour of her. I've sketched in the basic colours but it's not really speaking to me at this point. I think I could do something with tweaking some shades and maybe introducing a spot colour to lift it. I can't decide how to paint the tassles, for example. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears - which reminds me, I added big elfy ears to the model, should it look odd to anyone. I'd love to see anyone else's version of this mini, too.
