I always find it helpful to look at another's painting as a way to identify which bits are what.  Also helpful for finding where the mold line like to hide.  With your painting there is the added advantage of getting hints on where to place shadows and highlights and how to blend colors.  Thank you.  ^_^

Fixed her hand. I think she has some sort of articulated armor over her fingers except for the last joints.

So I spent, whew, all afternoon fiddling with tiny, tiny faces. This is where I got her to when I had finished with all the greys and black and white.

 

Her eye sockets are black. I haven't painted the eyes!

Her mouth is pure Red Oxide. I painted her fingernails with it too, because why not. Next is a wash of transparent purple mixed from Quinacridone Magenta and Phthalocyanine Blue to shade the upper lip and emphasize the line of the mouth. Then a pink highlight on the lower lip mixed from Quinacridone Magenta, Titanium White, and Yellow Ochre.

 

There's a stray bit of purple to clean up later.

Monique was one of the first minis I painted, I think I was still "cheating" hair by painting it with metallics then coating it in ink. She's a very fun mini, indeed.

 

I really like the expression you're giving your version. Lovely smirk!

Today was a day for painting eyes. I fiddled with them so much! and they are hidden behind the visor anyway.

 

I meant the yellow to be her sclerae and the red her irises, but I noticed from this angle the yellow looks a little iris-like:

This is the angle no one will ever see, looking up under her visor:

Paints used: Titanium White, Carbon Black, Hansa Yellow Opaque, Red Oxide.

I painted her hair and base.

DSC_0038.jpg.6b452b5beb53735c691e0b214b4d4f4e.jpg

 

Her base is my standard grey mix of Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, mixed and then lightened with Titanium White and blotted around. I did not bother painting a shadow because she's a vampire.

 

Her hair's foundation color is a rather more intense blue-black of mixed Phthalocyanine Blue and Burnt Umber. Highlights are the same grey I used for the base color.

I think I would like her armor to look lacquered red, but sinister.

 

I put two thin layers of a sort of transparent grape-black mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna on her armor, sword, and shield.

 

One layer:

DSC_0052-02551-Monique-Denoir-armor.jpg.501b65c3d0a07e7143c7ffcc37b93e33.jpg

 

Two layers:

DSC_0084.jpg.959ede28a1eb646587393e7275cb61e1.jpg

 

Then I brushed on pure Red Iron Oxide. This is an opaque brick red, normally considered dull, but over black and dark colors it really pops.

DSC_0146.jpg.3e3f7d1dd26a0ffabee9edae50ba3a84.jpg

 

I lightened the edges with an orange mixed from red Iron Oxide, Yellow Ochre, and Hansa Yellow Opaque. I plan to glaze over this with a transparent cherry red color later.

 

Meanwhile I also painted her skirtlet-thingie with pure Hansa Yellow Opaque. Not sure why yet, but we'll see where it goes.

I painted metallics on her, gold on her necklace and silver on her sword blade and sheath, the rivets on her shield, and two buckles.

 

The sword is painted shaded, more metallic on the top part than the bottom.

Now I am going to glaze her armor with Quinacridone Magenta, a transparent brilliant cherry red. By itself it looks pretty eye-watering, but over oranges and browns like those on her armor it turns to deep crimson.

This is the result:

      Coincidentally, I had this figure very nearly done two days ago when the sad news of Diana Rigg’s passing was made public.
       
      It always was a tribute to her incandescent portrayal of Emma Peel in the old British TV show “The Avengers”, but now it’s a memorial as well. Requiescas in pacem, Ms. Rigg.
       
      The figure is “Pandora King (Classic)” from Crooked Dice miniatures. Crooked Dice has a minis game based on cult TV and they’ve produced a lot of different figures suitable for that sort of storytelling.

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.
       
      Technical notes:

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
       
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
       
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
       
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.
