I wanted to try painting white cloth, specifically on the ruffles. Circumstances dictated that this become grayish ruffles, as often happens, so her shirt became gray as well (on purpose). It pairs well with the blue at least. The highlights in her dress turned out fantastic! And then were accidentally wrecked due to a mixup of blues. I salvaged what I could. 

 

Never really tried black hair with highlights before, not sure it came out right. The only black I have is Black Ink, and used some Breonne Blue to highlight. Didn’t spend a lot of time on it though.

 

Still can’t do eyes right, but I like the way her lips and jewelry turned out. It’s not really visible in these shots, but I managed to dot her necklace quite well (for me). Never came up with anything interesting for the shoe, however. Base is Ginger Cookie (and probably not quite dry).

 

I like this sculpt, but there are mold lines something fierce. I got many, but am far too chicken to attempt more. A dollar store craft knife is woefully inadequate to the task.

nice work! I like the blue/grey combo.

 

For black hair, a very dark blue mixed with a very dark brown works nicely as a basecoat (I have used blue and brown liner, and Blackened Brown and Corporeal Shadow to good effect). To highlight, just add some Ghost or Leather white into the mix, eventually coming to just white at the top. Yours, with the dark blue highlights, looks nice!

I like the white ruffles.  The guy who got me into mini painting once told me never to paint anything white so I've been too chicken to try.  Nice job on yours, maybe it's time for me to start experimenting!  She turned out really well, congratulations!

You should definitely go for it! Even though it didn’t come out exactly how I’d imagined, it was a good learning experience. Plus, it looks really spiffy when done well.

Yup, after seeing these paint jobs, I feel this Mini would make a great Elena of Avalor:) I am trying to come up with a whole cast set (because my kids love this show), I have an old Ral Partha that covers Matteo. Now I just need one for the captain of the guard and the girlfiend whose on the council.

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.
