Nice painting and I dig the idea of a Fox Bard. Hopefully, he is a bit of a charlatan. 

 

Do not be fooled by his beautiful clothes and captivating music, this cunning fox is a trickster. He hypnotizes you with his charisma while in the crowd his sidekick robs you and lighten your purse.

He's my favorite fox so far. Everytime I look at your photos, I see new details like how you highlighted his...fingers? Also how you used the purplish color to shade your green. Yep, I like him!

I love the striped pants, they're so crisp! At first I thought the overall composition was a bit chaotic, too much going on. I changed my mind; it gives him character, and bards can be kinda eccentric! Great work!

Oh my, he definitely looks like he knows quite a few good tunes, and how to have a good time! 

 

For some reason the words "hippy fox" come to mind, which seem to really fit him too... Also makes for a clever disguise, because I strongly suspect it's a mere "illusion" that he appears unarmed - tricky foxes are tricky like that!

Those pants are absolute magic.  Do you just free hand stripes like that, or is there a technique? 

 

It's really just freehand lines. I first paint the pale basecoat color all over the pants, then I work on the darker stripes.

 

On that model, I started at the front of the right leg, where there is no fold on the pants. This way, the first line was almost straight. Then, I painted the other lines successively from the top and all the way down to the boots. Logically, when there is a fold in the fabric, I make a deviation in the line towards the fold.

 

The lines are never perfect, I retouch the sides of the lines with the pale color to have sharp edges, clean all the excess. When you're happy with the result, shade with you favorite technique. Finally, add some highlight on the highest points of the folds.

 

Voilà, I hope it'll help.

Thanks for explaining your method! It is different than how I went about doing pinstripe suit pants, and worked wonderfully.

After receiving some constructive comments from Pochi, I reworked this one a little.

I painted some highlights on the tail dark band, applied a second coat of dull sealer and took two new pictures. :poke: Thanks @Pochi

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him
