Oooh, very nice! I like the eyes as they are right now.

 

I went for a more scrappy version with orange-yellow eyes:

I think that of all I've seen so far, she is your best work. I really love the smooth transitions and her face is just great!

She's off to a great start, and you've picked an excellent and classic color scheme for her!

 Looking good ... lip ring or mold line you seem to have it all worked out ... blending behind the highlights look great ...

I redid some of the blending and highlights on the armour.  I can't seem to get the white paint to flow smoothly for the highlights.  I am using a mix of 50% water/25% slodri/25%flow improver which seems to be working really well with other colours but the white inevitably becomes chalky as soon as I thin it.  I am using pure white and I recall reading somewhere that one of the other reaper whites has been found to be less chalky when thinned.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I suspect I need to order some other white paints to try. 

 

I am considering her done for now and moving on to another project.  The show off photos are here:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80876-03681-nazera-bloodraven-vampire/

 

Thanks for your suggestion to do this project Inarah!

If you want white which isn't chalky I recomend Zinc white (artist paint). Thought it is very transparent and has terrible tinting strength.
Just don't use it with oil paint.

      The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game.
      For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis.
      On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar.
      I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect.
      I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions...
      Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons.

      Finished painting the Roc as a Thunderbird. I lost patience halfway through, so not much blending and proper highlighting.

      Well I said it already I have started a lot of wips and I`m painting at all from time to time and nothing gets finished.
       
      Lorna The Huntress is a cool sculpt I ever wished to paint and now finaly I started it. I have got 3 wips already and you missed the first 2 ones and so I made a photo collage for you to see the other wip stages too.
       
      Here you can see what I was talking about already: I start messy. I don`t mind about clean painting at all, but with time it all becomes more clean, finer, it gets more depth, more contrast, more vibrant colours and so on. This is the way I work.
       
      I have no real concept for her and still consider about a base. Ideas are most welcome
       
      I have to link her for nudity I`m afraid and the bad news are: My image hoster compressed the images. Aaaaargh. Images are too small, but I hope you see enough. Next time I can upload single photos to my image hoster and because of a different size they won`t be compressed like this big collage. For the final photos of the finished Miniature I will post a link to my homepage and there you also can see all angles of her. Nothing is finished here and I will go on working out all details more.
       
      As always: All feedback is appreciated.
       
      Link for nudity:

      My first post here! I thought the bones 4 ape men would make good soldiers for my growing demonic army. Still thinking of tweaking some of the smaller details and considering also painting the armored one as a barlgura. Tried to give some texture by dry brushing orange over a black base coat for fur. I also tried to dry brush around the eyes to create a deep red glowing effect.

      C and c welcome but keep in mind I’m pretty new to this!

      I needed some more henchmen to fill out my frostgrave parties, especially some archers which I seem to have in very short supply.  So i Found these while rooting through my drawer of 'I dont know where this goes and put a pretty basic paint job on them.
       
      I needed some minis to fill out the challenge for this month so here they are:


       
      I did try a little freehand on the soldier's shield and played with some of the brighter colors for the dwarf twins so they would stand out.  In the end, basic minis to liven up the frostgrave maps
       
      Thanks for looking!
