Ok, so I worked on the tiny Leia. I painted her robes P3 Menoth White and shaded with Menoth White Base. It was way too yellow. So I painted over all of it with Army Painter White and then shaded with Menoth White and for the darkest lines I mixed Menoth White and Menoth Base. I think this looks better.

 

I highlighted her hair with P3 colors Umbral Umber, a mix of Umbral Umber and Bootstrap Leather, Bootstrap Leather, and then a mix of Bootstrap Leather and Menoth White Base.

 

I painted the belt the same way and then used Vallejo Metal Medium to paint a little shimmer on the belt. The belt decoration is blue metallic with silver painted over it.

 

I used P3 Arcane Blue to work on the lightsaber and the OSL. I hate the lightsaber. It is flat so doesn't really look like a lightsaber. My husband doesn't mind it and says he thinks it looks good. I could try and use the same colors and try and do NMM but I have never done that before and not sure I could pull it off.

 

I am not sure if I have gone too heavy on the OSL. I didn't bring it around the front too much because I didn't think the light would be reaching around too much.

 

Any thoughts, opinions, critiques, all are welcome.

 

I didn't set up my lights and everything so the photos aren't great.

A few more WIP pictures. I have not started the lightsabers on the twins. Other than that, unless anyone sees any issues, I think the twins are done. I am still not sure if I like where Leia is. I did redo her lightsaber, not NMM, but I do like it a little better now.

 

C&C welcome!

They are great!! Cute but dangerous.

 

one thing; I would say Leia’s lighsaber should be darker on the edges. Brightest at the mid-Line, as you have done, and then transit to darker at the edges. As the light is comming from the center/inside.

Yeah, that is what I thought too until I looked at photos of lightsabers. It has the darker color next to the white light in the center with the light diffusing and getting lighter at the edges. So you think the lightsaber in the first photos of Leia look better than the lightsaber after I redid it in the group photo?

 

I haven't started on the lightsabers for the twins because I just can't figure out how to make it look right.

More work tonight. I redid Leia's lightsaber again. I think this is better and so I went ahead with the twins' lightsabers and OSL.

 

Leia first:

Then twin #1. I love this mini and I love how she is coming along. Her little face is the cutest thing!

And last but not least is twin #2. I think his OSL looks the best.

I need to smooth the blends on all of the lightsabers. I might need to add a little more OSL, I'll see how I feel about it the next time I pick them up. I don't want to overdo the OSL and I think it would be easy to do so.

 

So, what do you guys think? Does the OSL look right? Are the lightsabers better?

 

Thanks for looking!

I like the light-sabers and the OSL on the twins is well done.    The OSL on the first (blue) I think is to stark and abrupt .  The blue is very strong but does not fade out as it transitions back to the white robe color, but just ends.  The blue is also the same strength / opaqueness at the bottom near the light-saber as it is on the shoulder and hood farther away.

 

Mind you I cannot do OSL half as good as this so take my feedback with a truckload of salt.

      Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter.
       
      Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

      There's a patch of wasteground on Beechwood Avenue where the old primary school used to stand until destroyed by a bomb on the afternoon of April 11, 1941.
       
      Locals have long said that spot is haunted. Pedestrians say there's a cold patch as you walk past it. Kids dare each other to touch the walls, although few actually will. Dogs shy away from the area.
       
      Some people even claim to have seen a small girl wearing a gasmask.
       
      This is all obviously rubbish.
       
      But Rose is still waiting for her mummy.

      Because I have finaly off a couple of days,  I`ll take the chance to upload one wip project more. But that`s enough for the moment.
       
      This will gonna be a diorama in the end and I started it as group project at my german home forum the Bemalforum. Sometimes we just consider a topic and the members of the forum try to keep to this topic with their projects. I started this as group project with the topic "Make love not war". I didn`t get it finished in time, but I don`t mind and nevertheless finish it as I have planned it.
       
      Concept:
      As said the topic is "Make love not war" and so this was a good opportunity for creating a battle scene with antagonists such as "Love" vs. "Hate", "Good" vs. "Evil" and so on. In the case here the Space Marine represents love and the good one. Haha. Alyx is representing hate and the bad one. This whole project has a meaning and a message and it is: "Hate is little fearful child and love is a huge, self contended Space Marine able to protect you."
       
      I drilled a hole into the gun of the Space Marine and later he will shoot with flowers LOL. I will also add anything peaceful into his empty hand (I still consider what exactly, suggestions for the empty hand are welcome). The side of the base where the Space Marine is standing on will be very colourful with green gras, plants and most of all with a lot of colourful flowers. The side of the base where Alyx is standing on will be monochromatic black/white as herfself is also only painted monochromatic black/white. The only colour which will be added later to Alyx and her side of the base will be bloodred. Her fist will be covered with blood later and it will drop on the base too.
       
      Base:
      What I wish to create here are 2 different spheres. One colourful and bright, full of hope and love (Space Marine`s side), the other one (Alyx`s side) liveless dark and just dried  and dead plants and simply everything will be painted only in black/white apart from the blood at Alyx`s fist and on the base. Maybe I will put the Teddy (she is originally holding in her hand) on her side of her base too and paint it still colourful as a symbol of her lost childhood. The concept is finished and determined. I`m only open for suggestions in details which support the basic idea.
       
      I had help by Mortimer and Ildfus Mahler (both members of the Bemalforum). Mortimer is my muse and he had the idea to add a Hasslefree child to the scene and Ildfus helps me to plan and execute my ideas for the base. So there are already other painters involved here for supporting this project and I will follow the advice by Ildfus Mahler mainly. So: Of course ideas are welcomed, but please be not upset if I let myself mainly guided by Ildfus, because I "engaged" him as my teacher for all concerning the base at this project. Thanks to Ildfus Mahler and Mortimer at this opportunity (for the case if they read it here).
       
      Technique:
      Oh well, this is really a hard task. I used this Space Marine for to practise maximum contrast which means I cover a range up from deep black to pure white.
      This is inspired by the outstanding and excellent work of the amazing painter Glaze O also known as Glaze Over.
       
      This means: Here are supposed multiple light sources (not only one from above like it is the case in zenithal highlighting) for determining the highlights/reflections. It is all painted in non metallic metal black, which was really a stupid idea Any other colour wouldn´t make this stress I have right now with all this greys, black and white aaaargh. The multiple light sources make the nmm looking intresting no matter from what angle you look at it and so this is advanced nmm painting.
       
      I mixed in some dark blue into the black for increasing the metallic look. Pictures are more blue than in real, I have to change the white balance settings for the next wip photos.
       
      In basic it is wetblending in the beginning, followed by layering (70%-80%) and partially I used two brush technique (30%-40%). Glaze Over has written on his blog that he only uses two brush technique for to create this wonderful shiny nmm effect, but I`m not very common with this technique and so I just used it partially until now.
       
      Nothing is really finished here and I`m still working on almost all blendings for to get them smoother and for to get the contrast higher. I guess I have painted over 50 hours until now (mainly tedious layering without any end) at the Space Marine and this sucks a bit haha. This is a challenge for me and the only miniature at the moment where I really try to improve my skills as a painter. All other paintjobs at the moment are just on my recent level (not very challenging), but this one here is meant as challenge for me.
       
      As always: All kind of feedback is appreciated.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Sorry this last image is too dark at the lower part, but the wooden base is to see. Both will be put on the same base which is a wooden socket.

      Having just a little bit offtime at the moment, but this gives me at least the chance to post a second recent/actual wip. It is Titania by Hasslefree and I`m really in love with this sculpt. Yes she is very tiny, but nevertheless good to paint I think. Apart from that she is really beautiful and I enjoy each brushstroke at her and I have pleasure in working her skin out as good as possible.
       
      This is first the second wip photo, but I`m painting at her since a while already and she looks almost finished. I will go on painting her a little bit and I still consider about a freehand at this piece of fabric she is holding in her hand, but I`m not sure yet.
       
      Concept:
      My plans are to create a nice magical forest base for her. I wish to sculpt a tree with a face and he is looking at her bottom and smiles haha. Apart from that a bit water, mushrooms, little animals, maybe glowing crystals or colourful flowers and so on. As always: I could need your help when it comes to building up the base.
       
      As always: All kind of feedback is appreciated If you have questions concerning painting technique and/or which paints/colours I used, feel free to ask.

      Well,
       
      after quite a lot of chaos, construction and unmotivated explosions, Zetta is finally finished. Check WIP ->here<-. She is my first finished figure in over two years, and I am happy she turned out the way she did. I am not so happy with her face. I messed it up in the end pretty badly, and I am disappointed - but it can't be helped. Therefore, I finished her before I could do a lot more damage.
       
      Thanks again to @Xiwo Xeraseand @Cyradisfor the help. That's the kind of help I was looking for. (oh, yes - and thanks to @Silvervane, who was once again made into a group of houses for the purpose of having an epic name for some backyard village - lol. Sorry :-D)
       
      Anyways - I handed her in for the current painting contest called "Bounty Hunter", at a German forum, which requires the maker to create a story and the figure. We will see how it turns out.
       
      For a complete presentation, I tried to translate the text into English. I hope I did it mostly correctly, as this was my first unassisted translation of a longer text since 2016 or so. You are absolutely free to correct me if you wish to, but I guess - except for this forum - no one else will read the English version.
       
      Thanks again and enjoy.
