She looks a bit like Vex'ahlia from Critical Role. (I am Vex ->This is Vax)

 

I really love her and once again can only admire the way you paint. Really great work and a beautiful figure alltogether.

 

Thanks! Those feathers took sooooo long. The yellow took almost as long, lol. Going for really smooth blends is tough! 

I think there are maybe.... 60 feathers on the cloak? Each has at minimum 5 colors, but most are probably more like 6-7. And the cloak was partially pre-shaded.

That cloak is very very beautiful.  I wonder if a bit of masking tape will help protect things?

 

Perhaps. Lucky for me, the cloak is only really at risk from attaching the quiver to her back, and the yellow is at risk from a tiny bit of the bow. How well does paint do against masking tape? Maybe just a tiny bit on the at-risk zones would be worth it.

A layer of brush-on sealer makes it easier to clean up stray brush stokes.  (I have had some epic fumbles.). Not sure if you normally seal your painted pieces or not.  

 

Not going to be sealing this piece. For most of my stuff I do a bit of sealer, but it does change the surface reflectivity a bit. I don't want to hazard that on here.

It's really dependent on the strength of the adhesive on the tape.  Generally, the regular tan masking tape, or blue/purple/green painters tape work well, but dabbing the tape to your pants a couple times will reduce the adhesive a little.  You want the tape to stick just enough to stay, and obviously not pull up anything underneath.

Yeah, I had a feeling that might be an issue.  I probably wouldn't risk masking tape without testing it first on something else.  If you got this far on something so intricate I don't think you've got any worries about managing the rest of it.  ^_^

That cloak is incredible, and her face is wonderful!!!  Her eyes are also fantastic and quite impressive (I know from experience just how small they really are!).

 

Also, what PhD program are you applying for?  I'm pretty fresh out of grad school myself (got my Master's two years ago in Materials Engineering and Science), and can commiserate with the battles of the academic world!

      A little magic today! Here is 01402, Magnus the Wizard of Hope. This Special Edition model was sculpted by Werner Klocke and was released as a fund raiser for 9-11 relief. To my knowledge, it was also available on December 11, 2011, December 10, 2013 and December 5, 2014 during the twelve days of Reaper.

      Hello everyone, here is my converted Reaper Miniatures 01411, Harapan sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Back in 2005, this limited-edition model was produced to raising money after the Tsunami disasters in SE Asia. The funds collected were distributed to the Red Cross and Unicef.
       
      Nowadays, this mini is very hard to find and the molds were supposedly destroyed after production. I was lucky enough to find one and spent all my free time during the last two weeks converting, painting it and creating a base for it.
       
      I converted its weapon by replacing the blades with a cleaver and a tiger paw flail. You can see the original model on the last picture. The tiger paw is front paw of a 02817, Moor Hound. The tropical planted are plastic aquarium plants. I painted the blade as a damascus forged steel and added a blue/green sky and earth non-metallic metal SENMM effect on the metallic parts. I also added ceremonial painting on Harapan’s forehead. I have used Reaper MSP paint exclusively.

      The figure is a cross between the marvel thor and the mythic one. 
      the warhammer handle is too long,  it's part of the myth that it was unfinished (thanks to loki) and the handle was too short. 
      I guess it would be less useful as a cleric if the sculptor followed through on this.  I did not realize how close my color choices were to the painted example at the reaper store.
       
      the cloak pattern was about the third version of celtic knotwork that I tried.  Its not easy to do on just sketch paper, but i like the finished effect.

      Hello everyone, here's the result of my first attempt at sky and earth non metallic metal (SENMM). This Dark Heaven Legends model 02023, Tolzar Righteous Arm was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I started painting it during RVE (Reaper Virtual Expo). I painted the cape as I was following along Ian Markon's class on blending through Layering and Feathering. I then painted the freehand at the bottom of the cape during Brice Cocanour's Beginner Freehand class. I finally painted his armor, shield and hammer head using the SENMM technique. It's my first take at Sky and Earth Non Metallic Metal. I did my best to reflect the sunset on all metallic parts. Let me know what you think.
