Thanks guys! Thanks Jabberwocky, I'm doing whatever I can to paint at my best level. I'm painting more often and for longer period of time. Since I restarted in January, after a long two-year break, I told myself it was time for me to do what I really like in life. I strongly believe that whatever I do, especialy when I'm doing things I like, I must do it to my best abilities. I really appreciate you noticing my efforts are paying off.

 

Here are some more pictures.

Oh my gosh, that SHIELD!!!:wub::wub::wub: It took me several moments of staring to convince myself that you didn't actually use metallic paint! (...I mean, I don't think you did... :wacko:) I think what truly sells it is the fact that the specular reflection (I think that's the right word) isn't straight, so it really does a gorgeous job of convincing the eye that it's a curved shiny metallic surface. Is there a tutorial you followed or some secret technique you can share? :) 

 

There are so many other spectacular parts of this figure, but that's what really caught my eye the most. Outstanding, exceptional work! :wub:

 

Huzzah!

You're right, I didn't use any metallic paint.

 

Like you said, I think it's convincing because the reflexion isn't straight. In fact, it's absolutely random. That's what I call the beauty of chaos. I knew I wanted an aleatory highlight, so I let the blue to white blending show me where it was going to be. I blended from pure blue to pure white with probably five different tones and then, simply strengthen that culminating curve along the palest tone. I used the same approach on top of the helmet.

 

I hope it will help! Thanks for your comments, I appreciate

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him
