WiP DarkSword LE Sorceress 'Elsa' for RP bonus Frostbite

Recommended Posts

Ah, yes...serious critiques are welcome. This is a learning piece for me, so.... I'd like to ... well, learn from it. ;)


The concept is a sorceress who has used a lot of cold magic and is feeling the heat draining effects. Her dress is to be somewhat see through, which should make her look really cold... thin fabric in winter. Did I mention it was a balmy 6 degrees here this morning? yeah, I'm chanelling.

I'm not an expert on flesh tones, but it's looking good so far!  Have you taken a look at Corporea's latest work in progress?  It's green skin not blue, but she does teach a great class on flesh and faces at ReaperCon and some of those techniques are explained here:

I love the blue. What colours did you use for it?

The dress is primarily Surf Aqua. It's mixed with Vampiric Shadow in the 'fleshy' spots.

Skin is Vampiric shadow, with variations and mixes with

Violet Shadow

Sunset Purple

Vallejo Azure

Rosy Skin

and Leather white

Very Nice.  I've been working on the same mini but in a much warmer skin tone.  I really like the ocean colour triad and have used it on a few minis for skin.  I think it may be a bit too cool for what I'm doing with this figure though.  I will probably go with an autumn brown-orange dress.  Pretty much the opposite of what you are doing actually.  Thanks for the info.  I love what you've done with her so far.

Ok. I seriously lapsed in updating this. But she is finally done. She transformed from a bratty fig insisting on derailing my other projects into my ReaperCon Entry. I'll be posting final images once reapercon starts. But a sneak peak closeupof her base...

      Since I need a new wizard and apprentice for Frostgrave, I decided to tackle these two young elementalists this weekend. Not sure I'll use them, but they're simple enough to paint up. 
      My inspiration pic for the elementalists.


      Still a lot of work to do, detail-wise, but not bad so far. Sticking pretty close to their movie colors. And yes, that's a converted Drago Voss. I really hated the burlap sack head he had, so I replaced it with a GW skull. It's a little bigger than I'd like, but I think he'll fit right in with the Barrow Wardens anyway. 
      I'll take better pictures later. For now, crappy cellphone pics at night.

      This is Reaper's other frost giant, the one who isn't in Bones. My husband was running a giant-intensive campaign and I thought he would be fun.
      I painted him in a raking northern light, with pale ivory light on one side and deep blue shadows on the other, with an attempt to show the reflectiveness of sky and snow. His clothing is patched and impromptu, his weaponry a little battered. I painted the metals with metallic paint but also painted reflections and shadows on them.
      There's a WIP thread here.
      Some of the pictures are taken from a low angle because it seemed right for a giant. Also, Frorigh is hunched forward and a little difficult to see from straight on (indeed, he is a little front-heavy and needed some counterweight to keep him from toppling forward -- you can see at the front of the base edge where I used epoxy to tilt up the front of the base about 2 mm).




      ETA: I have submitted him to the Inspiration Gallery.

      OK Everyone.
      I'm so jazzed by the minis SGHawkins09 sent me for the 2015 summer exchange.
      This was the Bone Earth Elemental 77185 painted in an ice/snow theme, based as such.
      It might be a great proxy for a certain Disney Movie all the kids know by heart these days...
      She fogot to take pictures, so I did her the honor.  She should be very proud of her work.
      I love how in certain shots/angles, the snow effect looks like it's melting!
      This figure and its partner have taken up front positions on the Shelf of HonorTM
