Love it Cash! He looks nice and grimy, the shadows are really nice. The detail work around his tie is well done.

You're too harsh on yourself.

 

This one looks great and many people would give their neighbour's right arm to be able to paint like that!

( Note: offering a neighbour's right arm will prevent losing yours, you need it to paint, right?)

Well, it looks like you used water based acrylic mini paint, and not oil or graphite!

 

So, it seems you retained your skill set!

 

Nice result for shaking off the rust.

A detachable zombie arm perhaps?

Thanks, everyone. The toughest part about painting with acrylics is the blending. So simply and lovely with oils :)

 

It was a decent project for reacquainting with the medium. While having the wrong paper on the palette meant I couldn't do much for mixing blends, I was able to cobble together a couple and kinda remember how it goes. And the pants were an exercise in saving an utter mess. I had been sticking to a somewhat limited palette of undead skin and blood triads (red/green), the undead highlight is heavily white and this went chalky and pastel really quickly. So I started glazing over, which gave him pink pants. I pulled out sepia wash because it was on the desk (the KS3 paint set), which skewed it too yellow. I was shooting down the middle for a brown (which is an orange), so I went back and forth until the stark highlights had been dialed down and fixed for hue. Then I (lazily) added black to add depth back to the shadows.

 

I painted the flesh with the dark red before going into undead skin, mixing the red in a bit as I went.

 

I'm a bit better about controlling colors, but it's tough when you don't see the constituent elements of the paint, and I'm really not too focused on color theory at this point (I work mostly in graphite and charcoal). I've just cobbled a few things together in portrait class. Once I get serious and learn Munsell bracketing, dialing in the colors should be a lot easier.

      Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.

      Fun fact! Like most zombicide minis, this sculpt was inspired by a fantasy character. In this case it is Isabeau from the movie Ladyhawke played by Michelle Pfeiffer. 
       
      I've painted this mini to be my new ranger named Michelle in my Rangers of Shadowdeep campaign. I had a lot of fun highlighting her dress. Hope you like her!

      I've got more dead things for you today.  @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead!  Here's my little collection of swamp zombies.


       
      The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere.
       


       
      He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model.  I love him.

      Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40).



       
      I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush.  His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up.  Would make a great shaman-type mini.

      And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game.  Again.  Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now.  Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck.



       
      All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies.

      Which one do you like best?
