And good evening again!
And quite in contrast to the other figure I just posted, this little thief is quite a bit more sensibly attired, covering herself up relatively decently I'd say.
I think this is also sculpted by Dennis Mize, but not 100%.
Once again, as per usual, my hardest decision is always colors, so used Terran khaki for her main skin color and kept some cool colors with her wardrobe mostly.
The only thing that didn't really work out like I wanted was that on her boots she had laces going up them, but I just kind of highlighted them a little and didn't do anything with them, because her left leg is bent down so much, even though they were sculpted there I couldn't really reach them very well. Other than that though pretty happy with how she came out.
She has sort of an odd vest that is open in the front and then ties closed in the back, but at the end of the day that's how she was sculpted, so just obeyed the sculptor!
Once again, may she not be painful upon your eyeballs!
another figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha figure, which I think might have been part of their redesigned Partha Imports back in the day.
And of course, she's dressed extremely sensibly, as if she's screaming "you will NOT stab me in the nipple!". She was fun to do however, nice big face and a simple piece to paint.
So anyhoos, enjoy!
Here is the finished piece. The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got. I thought the upper wings were gorgeous
Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook? Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results. I especially want to work on some tattoo effects. I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well. In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
And she got the mini today and loved it!
Private Chapman has been in stasis for 1,538 days and awake for two. Private Chapman is wondering where she is, when she is and what her mission is. Private Chapman is also pondering why she hasn't been issued desert pattern armour.
Private Chapman has just spotted something up ahead. Private Chapman's life expectancy is four minutes.
(Again, sorry about the photos which were taken on my phone.)
So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera.
This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize. This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series.
I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful. The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use. Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar.
And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk:
So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon!
Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate!
