That's a great sculpt, looking forward to see how you paint it!

 

Still debating bikini colors. Perhaps a forest green? *shrug*

Maybe something that contrasts her skin? I don't know in which direction you want to put the skin, but when it is a darker colours, I think the ... ah ... "clothes" should be going into the opposite direction.

Her skin will end up on the tan-Caucasian side most likely. Thinking brunette hair. A dark green would contrast the skin and match the hair.

Much boob. Very green. If I do that I'm signing up for freehanding plant tattoos on her though, lol!

Yeah. Sure. Then it's perfect. Looking forward to seeing your progress on her.

Alright so I've NMM'd weapons, now I try some armor. Any tips on what is wrong with her shoulder armor (aside from there only being shoulder armor)? 

 

@Kuro Cleanbrush - wisdom?

 I think on the shoulder armor you're not going dark enough with your shadows, and if it's supposed to be polished steel, you'll need to just push the contrast in general.

 

On a side note, every time I've painted her I've just gone with metal cups for the bikini top.

I considered metal for the top, but that would really turn the boobs into torpedo-tatas. 

 

Will try to get the dark parks darker. I think some trouble might be on placement of highlights but not sure.

The highlight placement on the tubular pieces on her upper arm seems okay to me although I agree the contrast needs to be much higher.  On the pieces on top of her shoulder though I think you have the highlights/shadows inverted. Should be light at the bottom and dark at the top with the transitions parallel to the horizon.  Where she has so much flesh showing and the bright green top so close to the armour it could be worth incororating those colours into the armour as very faint reflections in the mid tones.

Hmm. Maybe that top flared part is backwards. I like having the bright by her face - contrasts the hair. But it seems off. Not sure if worth fixing. I have upped the contrast. Lined with black, and peak highlights are white now. I do like the idea of glazing a wee bit of green in there.

      The Screaming Antelope is one of the core monsters of Kingdom Death: Monster.  And the fact that you can get so many fine resources from it makes it one of the most hunted creatures in the setting.
      For this paintjob, I wanted to move away from both the grey standard color scheme for the antelope and away from the red "skinned antelope" look I've often seen.
      All together, I feel like this came out really well.
      The base is constructed from apoxie sculpt and green stuff.

      I wasn't sure if I should post this in Show off or WIP, but I figured here and if you would please forgive the in progress parts in the subsequent post.
       
      Ron let me paint this lovely sculpt by Gene Van Horne.  Actually, I think I might have begged to paint it and considered stealing it from his office if he refused.   She'll be in the Greek Odyssey Expansion for Bones V.  If by some miracle you have come to this forum and not heard of Bones V, it can be found here.  Aaron Lovejoy was awesome and took some high definition photos of her after last Reapercon.  
       





       
      I really love this sculpt, can't say that enough.  She's got some fantastic detail, lots of good open space to work on blending or freehand, even a scenic base to play with stone effects.  While I loved the original Yephima by Patrick Keith, and still use her in my classes, this one really screams warrior to me.  I need to paint my bones version when I get it as Athena. I'll have to add a shield somewhere, though. Maybe convert the club to a spear.  Decisions decisions.
       
      Anyway, feel free to ask questions.  I'm happy to explain or help with anything!  I'm going to post the WIP pictures I have in another post, so hopefully those will also be useful.  Enjoy!

      I find this mini problematic and objectifying.
       
      that said I wanted the baboon that came with her. So I figured I’d make some progress on skin tone and paint her up.
       
      happy with how she came out even if I might not ever use her

      Whoo! I primed these all last month after ReaperCon. And then they just sat there while I finished other stuff. But now my desk is clear and I'm ready for more art!
       
      I am solidly in the "paint a solid color on the mini with a little shadow and highlight because I wanna play or sculpt" category. I also feel like I could have given my most recent sculpt a lot more love simply by not just painting her all the same shade of brown, haha!
       
      So I've gathered up my paint, a handful of bones minis, my notes from Rhonda, Derek, and Erin, and now it's time to learn how to paint skin! I'm really excited to try out different expressions, skintones, and lighting. I went ahead and primed them so if we need them for any games, they won't have blinding white clothes on. I'm not certain on all the names, but all except maybe 1 or 2 of these were from my Bones III Kickstarter order.
       

       
      I don't want to get pinged for nudity, so I gave this dryad a cute little Space Age dress in case she accidentally gets in the frame while I'm working on other pieces.
       

       
      I'm pretty pleased with it. ;)

      Ok I don't do that many WIPs but I thought I'd try on this one. This is so far a base coat and 6 layers of shading. I like to use glazes so the build up is very gradual and I have to remember that everytime I start a mini lol. I will put down about 10 more layers going down all the way to a deep purple. This is at the pure tanned skin shadow phase. It will be slow going due to work but I will keep up with it. Comments and criticism welcome and before it gets mentioned I removed no mold lines this is more of a proof of concept to see if I can finish a wip post and how my skin painting is coming along. Thanks!
