Okay, I promise I'll finish one of these threads one day. But in the meantime I've started painting the Bones Sphinx. I've already painted up the wings, I've just got a few little things to do. I do want to thank @Pochi for the inspiration for the wings.

Did a wash on the wings to bring out the feathers a little more, need to work on the details on the "eyes" on the inside of the wings simce the was brought them down a lot more than I'd have liked it to.

Working on the highlights and shadows still but going to go ahead and do the eyes because I really don't want to mess up the face.

I think the eyes look great! They really look like the ones from hieroglyphics :)




Thanks! I accidentally painted over half of her left eye in trying to fix the rest of the face. So, I need to try to fix that before I go further.

I /think/ I've got them as even as I can. Also, now with eyebrows! Need to figure out how to smooth things out a bit so I really don't have to strip it.

I put some eye shadow on and a little lip color. Not sure how I feel about it. Thoughts?



It's nice, although I think she might look nicer with darker lips. Like a dark reddish brown. It's subtle, but can accentuate the cat element on this specific figure. I googled for some images to kinda show what I mean. Although, if you are looking to give her a more glamorous look I think you did a nice job.

      I am pretty new to the hobby having started painting in February. I finally worked up the courage to post one of my completed projects in the hopes of getting some feedback. So here is my painted Large Earth Elemental  from the Reaper Bones line. Any advise is very welcome as I would very much like to improve! Thanks!

      Like the title say, WIP. Struggling a little with the vagueness of the sculpt, but this is an early Bones, AFAIK, so making allowances.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?


      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 

      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      I turned 30 a month ago. I celebrated it by having a game day and dressing up like an elf and going into the woods nearby-ish and do fun photos. We had fun with faerie lights. These are my favorites. Spoiled for possibly large photos.
      I'll post my (hopefully) public FB album to see all of them when they are up on there.
