Outstanding job on the skin tones, truly sublime!  Thanks for sharing some of your technique too (I need to spend more time lurking in the WIP section).  It is interesting seeing the figure with different color backgrounds, surprising how much of an effect it has.

Thank you!

 

Yes, the backgrounds really change how she looks. I have started taking photos of my minis with a couple different backgrounds to see how they look and what looks best.

Those skintones really are amazing! And the hair, I like that you used purple both in hair and the loincloth.

Clever use of those clear-colors, and not using the same colors all way through.. I would never have thought of that!

She is a beauty!

Thank you! She is a recurring NPC in the game that I DM for. She has dark purple hair that she twists up on top of her head and hides daggers in her hair. And, purple is my favorite color!

 

I can't take full credit for the glazes. I read it somewhere, maybe MaGie's blog. I wrote it in my painting notebook to try out when I tried painting dark skin. Glad I did!

Great work!

 

Saw this on Facebook last night before seeing the post here.  Always a little weird stumbling across this stuff under different names/contexts.

 

Thanks!

 

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's like, "Aha! I know who you are!" ::P:

When I click on that link I get Anghela. :/

 

 

 

Weird! I tested it and even when I click it now, I get the correct photos. It does say Anghela at the top of the page (no idea why because that is not the album's name) but the photo is correct for me. As SisterMary said, click the arrows and you should get the correct photos. Grumble, grumble, facebook. Sorry about that!

The skin turned out lovely, and I like how the purple highlights in her hair match her loincloth -- it helps pull the figure together.  The base also came out lovely.

 

Did you have trouble with all those tiny bangles on her belt?  Getting a clean coat of paint on those was a pain when I painted this figure.

The hardest part for me was seeing all of the bangles once I had painted all of her skin dark! I used a small detail brush to paint the gold and then went back with my darkest shadow color and cleaned up any place where I got gold on her skin.

      The new student assistant at Miskatonic's Orne Library! Already Ms Dinklage (Hasslefree's "Louise") has proven to be adept at scholarship and library science, and not easily frightened (this latter being a VERY useful job skill at Ol' Misk). When asked about her tremendous sang-froid she was evasive, mentioning 'friends from [her] summer job' and 'travels in dark corners of the earth.'  


      With some of her fellow-students:


      And with others on the library faculty:

      After giving both Buckland and the Miner a jaunty yellow-and-white scheme, it came burning hot into my mind that they should be part of a team of space roughnecks/asteroid miners/problem solvers. This is the rest of that team. 

      First, Kulgara. She's a Pathfinder model, from the 'Iron Gods' adventure, and is a techno-badelf. What a great Space Orc. I think her vambraced fists count as construction equipment, and the ridiculously huge chainsaw (with knuckle spikes, in case you have a chainsaw fight and need to punch someone?) is beautifully over-the-top. I'm not sure what the lever-matic tool on her back is supposed to be. The giant wrench is from Bombshell.



      She's definitely in the right line of work here.

       
      Next up, Sluggo, the Space Henchman. Noseless and brutish, with gangly but muscular arms and a dyspeptic expression. I thought at first of making him the same species as the Andromedans, but decided against it and gave him a pale Vampiric Flesh+Magos Purple sluglike complexion. Jetpack is Bombshell again. I love jetpacks, though I'm afraid this one gets in the way of his suspendies.
       


      Serendipitously, I remembered the weird little Slimer-like alien I had leftover from Betty, Space Heroine (50150). It, too, has a big round noseless head, rubbery aspect, wiry limbs, and short legs! Perhaps it and Sluggo here are the same species; it certainly looks like it could hench in a pinch. I'll call it Squish.
       

       
      Also got a fella in a hazmat suit with some kind of Geiger-counter sensor or such, from Hasslefree. Seen here in a routine check of goo emissions levels. Just carrying out assigned tasks, nothing suspicious here.

       
      And here's the whole greasy roustabout crew:

      Because we need more badelf fighting ladies.

      Kev White, the sculptor, seems to have paid attention during "The First Avenger." Great uniform details. But I've already got the muscular and dynamic Zenith (50080) in that role, so I went with our neighbors to the North. The shield is, again, my addition. 

       
      More angles: 

      Superhero team-up time! 

       
      And another mission (feat. Dirk Goodspeed, 50195, and Sasquatch, 50011).

       
      More Squatch:

      Dungeon-crawling! They say it's a young humanoid's game, but that's not always true. A lifetime of experience and the survival skills necessary to get to one's golden or even orichalcum years are pretty useful.

      Here's Sebastian, a knight of some experience from Hasslefree. Well armored and cautious, probably why he's still around. 

      And another, less cautious but equally seasoned adventurer, Conran the Barbarian, also from Hasslefree.




      More pictures: 
       

      Here he is bonding with the grandkids (Serris, 02997 and Cuth Wolfson, 03701)

       
      and at his day job. 

      (Conran is definitely a version of Pratchett's Cohen the Barbarian, who conceded that after a few hours of fighting a ten-thousand-man army he might start getting tired too--but so would his enemies, as they would be running uphill at that point.)
       
      Fighter and barbarian-thief are a good start, but a well-rounded party should also have an arcanist and a healer. Jos Gebbler, 14317, and Estra,  60198, seem like good fits. A combined three centuries of adventuring experience pays off!


       
      But there are threats yet older than they...

      “OMG, I found a Nokia and it still works!”
       
      So, I’ve been in a painting funk for a while.
      Then a friend suggested we try out Zona Alfa, which AIUI is a post apoc skirmish game set in Eastern Europe.
      It only needs 4-10 minis to start off, so I decided to get off my arse and  paint up a Warband.
      “Karolina’s Angels” will probably have 4-6 members.
      The first member is Luce (AKA HFA121 “Widow” from Hasslefree)
      Hopefully I will have enough drive to paint the rest.
      Thanks for looking.
