 She really does look like an Elmore painting...

 

The concept art for her is on the Dark Sword webpage for her. Just search "Dark Sword 2008 Elmore Demoness" and it is at the bottom. Just black and white, though. The sculptor did a really good job translating her to 3D. 

 

Glad to hear I kept her Elmoriness intact!

Thanks folks! I think this was the color combo on the wings: S75 Hykey Yellow, Reaper Saffron Sunset, Deep Red, Brick Red, and Nightshade Purple. I mixed the paints between stages (yellow + saffron, saffron + red, red + brick). I did rough smooth blending initially (no nightshade), and then highlighted and shadowed the ridges and creases with a stage brighter and a stage lower than whatever the base color in that region was, ending on the Nightshade Purple.  

 

I actually had the true base coat as S75 Hastur Purple, which was entirely too magenta for my liking so I covered it and toned it down with the other hues. Warning - the Saffron + Deep Red looks really weird as a color on the palette, but looks good in practice.

Absolutely stunning! Totally stealing those wing colors.

 

Steal away! The eyes are a combo of the Bette Davis eye model guide and Marike Reimer's guide (I put a white highlight spot on there, then put a thin red dot into that one to give it the glow). 

 

Overall, even with the wings colors, the wings really were a "add paint until I like it" sort of deal. Once I started the highlights and creases the smooth blending went out the window. If you zoom in, it is pretty easy to see brush strokes - I just was careful to place them well!

Those wings...:wub: The skin tones are very nicely done and her eyes are great. There are a couple spots which appear a tad abrupt (maybe a photo/lighting artifact?) though overall smooth and subtle! Wonderful painting!

 

Some areas are more abrupt than others, due to the angles of the model, the lighting, and my own abilities. I took the photos using evening sun through my eastern window. It was a pain to get a photo where my phone wasn't casting a shadow upon her!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8107, Joey the Thug - Sheltie Rogue was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used tree bark and sand on its 40mm diameter base.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8083, Harrek the Otter Cleric was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used a natural river rock as promontory on its 40mm diameter base. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      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
