I’ve been in a rut for the last few months not producing or working on anything. Partly too busy over the holidays and partly feeling uninspired. I want to get back into it, so to that end I’m going to do something different and pretty and light-hearted. 

 

I present “Fade” from Mirico. She’s a gorgeous bust with very striking details and a lot of room to interpret artistically. I hope you all enjoy the WIP while you follow along and please feel free to offer your comments and critiques!

One of my favorites, can’t wait to see what you do with her!

Mine as well. Very different from

my normal stuff.

Awesome bust!

 

Any ideas yet?

Will she get a non human skintone for instance?

A few ideas percolating... non human skin tone. Green hair. Flowers growing in her hair and along her elbow. 

 

The base will be scenic and help portray her story.

Did you select this piece specifically to break out of your funk, or have you done some others to get the juices flowing?  I've been lacking that umph for the last few weeks and have been looking for ways to get rolling again.

Yes, to break out of my funk and get the creative juices flowing again. Needed something “pretty” to paint is how I decided on her.

A very lovely sculpt, can't wait to see how you turn her into a barbarian fey. ;)

 

 

Nope, no barbarian for this delicate piece. Going very feminine and whimsical. ::):

I'm in the same funk. It might be related to having so much crap on my work table right now due to organizing & not cleaning up after last year's months before ReaperCon activities. I need to thou, I've been wanting to paint just I see that mess & go eh tomorrow.

Roger that.  I've done my share of cleaning over the past few weeks.

 

I like Uber's approach.  I'm going to just start something new; something thing pretty.

Nice! I saw a few of these as well. The bottom one was the one I was looking at very closely and which I was most inspired by.

I like to spend a night to clean up everything before I start a new project. It helps me not get distracted or overwhelmed by the other stuff.

Primed with Stynylrez Green and then some highlights picked out with Stynylrez Yellow through my airbrush. Going to let it cure overnight and then start painting tomorrow. Will be using a lot of glazes and taking my time to get her to what I envision in my head.

Very nice sculpt, I'm looking forward to seeing how you umm... tackle her?

 

No need to tackle, she's delicate and I'm going to take my time and build up the layers with glazes to try to get a very smooth paintjob on her. 

 

I'm trying to decide on how to do the base right now, I have an image in my mind and it comes down to trying to execute what I see there.

      Story
      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      So I gotta say... the cast quality was so so on this. So I decided to hide that with "kinda dead". Very loosely inspired by Salem from RWBY. I put the figure down about 25% done for over a year then slammed it out in February as a "get it done" and to practice white hair before going to the next Vancouver paint club figure. Sucks that this one somehow also felt a bit like a self portrait by the time I was done.

      This is the "Soul Stealer" bust from Artisan Guild's welcome pack on patreon. I printed it on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
      This might be the first bust I have ever painted, not counting an Orc bust from the very early days of Forge World that I started but never finished and sold off at some point in the distant past (oh, the Folly of Youth).


      So why this newfound fascination for busts? I hear you ask.

      Well, it's the RCL again. "Bust" is a quarterly category, and since Reaper only make a very few busts, none of which are readily available at the moment (there will be a few released after Bones 5 fulfills later this year), the fine folks at Reaper have decreed that bust entries are not limited to Reaper product.

      Did I mention that the RCL has been a fun way to choose what to paint? It really helps to keep things fresh and to motivate to finish the pieces I start. And now also to paint other stuff than I usually would.

      I do not buy busts as they are generally outside my scope of interest. However, I do own one or two busts as .stl-files that have been parts of patreon bundles.
      And with such an extensive library of files at hand, once I decide to do one, it does not take long to make supports and print one off.

      But what to choose? Tentacle-face or a human face?


      Do you want to know more?

      I still don't have a great photography setup, so despite efforts, this is fairly washed out (pinks in the cheeks aren't as apparent as IRL, and the hair is dulled in the photos). But until I can get figures in for a photoshoot with a friend, these will do. Sloppy selfie with the inspiration for the figure setup, before I try to dye my hair back to normal. Been teal for 9 months now, and I miss my blonde.
      I painted the figure roughly as myself, instead of with ideal artistic combinations. The patch on the back isn't really the coolest, but that's our work group's logo (and a diagram of part of my PhD research). So it is a personal design, distinctly not artistic. Also dragon instead of weasel.... heh.
      Project was part of the Season 3 for the Vancouver Mini Painting Club
       
      TADA.
