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.








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:



Two layers:





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.






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:

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
      I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more.
      However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style.
      This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
      In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
      There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
      I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
      Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
      Enjoy! ( or not)
      Bats and a Murder of Crows
      EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe.
      Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
      The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.
      Changed the name of the Project.


      Eldessa Necromancer

      Ral Partha Female Vampire

      Lurien and Aysa

      Bat Demon

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.

      02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke riding a 02739, Dire Bat sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
      I changed the blades of his two swords for new ones from the 02455, Weapons Pack IV, by Werner Klocke.

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.
