Just finished painting a copy of the Bones version of Satheras using two hues plus black and white:
I started him during our last paint day as an example of how you could use a single brown to get quite a few different looks. After I got home, I decided to keep on with a very limited palette.
Paints used (all Golden Fluid Acrylics):
Burnt Sienna Dioxazine Purple Zinc White Carbon Black
Not intended as a competition mini, but it was a really interesting exercise and the result, I think, has some virtue as a piece of art.
I got this to be my first bust to paint, sourced from Figone. CMPA had the "Bust a Move" challenge, so I finally painted him up. Yep, first bust! Next time I'll try a human or humanoid.
Mounting him was kinda a nuisance, but I did something basic. He has a magnet on his back, and I greenstuffed a magnet to a nail. I can change the base later if I want. He's the first of my limited palette challenges, and I used blue because blue is a pretty easy one and I thought he'd do well with it. I smooth blended the face, and semi-smooth blended the mane, and went back for fur texture with a tone just one or two steps off of the layer beneath it. I imagined him as a lion day dreaming of a fantasy world, and a bit whimsical.
Eyes: NMM Gold Triad (Shadow, Base, Highlight), Dragon White, Pure Black, S75 Tindalos Red.
The Majority of Stuff: Pure White, Ghost White, Morning After Blues, Sky Blue, Dragon Blue (base fur color), Midnight Blue, Nightmare Black, Vallejo Game Color Black Ink.
More small stuff from when I was ill. I decided to continue my Mostly Monochrome style challenge, but this guy is tiny. He has green and red eyes, but otherwise is an exercise in Violet. I didn't write those paints down sadly, but I think Icy Violet was one, and perhaps something like Violet Shadow...? And I used blue washes. It was fun trying to force the contrast on this one with limited colors. Anyway, tada!
It occurred to me that I have many older completed miniatures in my collection that the good forumites of this board may not be familiar with, but bear special relevance to my time as an artist or to Reaper miniatures.
This kobold Hero sculpt was clearly inspired by the Seins kobolds at Reaper, and he serves as a hero for my large kobold warband. It was the first humanoid sculpt I ever completed, circa 2009. It was painted in 2011. Necromancy .
My Painting & sculpting vacation starts today! Yay!
