Morty, the Cute Reaper - by Cyr

Recommended Posts

I was miserably ill last month. Gargling razor blades, everything hurt, and I could barely think. So I painted Death. But he's cute death, and I didn't really care if I fudged up a Bones chibi. I kinda hate painting skeletons, but eh, it was a relaxing paint job. Lots of "woulda shoulda coulda" on making the paint blend smoother, go for more contrast... blah blah. I was sick and decided to taunt Death a little by putting in less than 100% effort on him. Not too shabby for a figure that I may end up flinging on the table willy nilly.

The first reaper I see (afar from Terry Pratchett's Death character) that makes me light-hearted instead of sad or uncomfortable.

 

Great work, Cyr. Thank you for sharing it with us!

As I scrolled down to see the figure, I had to chuckle when I saw him.  Love that smile!  Really nice wood finish on the handle of the scythe!

Great shading on the blacks, which seems to elude me no matter what. Very well done and great news on your recovery too.

Nightshade Purple and the Dark Elf Skin triad work wonders for black. Get a black-black for deepest shadows and go gently up from there. 

 

Recovery mostly good.... still in progress. My throat still irritates at everything, so no hard cardio for me ::(:

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.

      I got the chance to paint up some miniatures for a project to bring the Modest Medusa webcomic into the minaitures world.
      These were all sculpted by Brian Phelps, and I think every one of them sculpts is super cute.  I'm going to get to do some more of them for backers, since the project is pretty nicely overfunded.
      Anyway, here are all of the very cute Medusa minis I painted for them.

      A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.
       
      I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?
       
      Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...
       
      During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.
       
      The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!
       
      So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

      Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.
      I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.
       
      Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?
       

      ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!
