Great work.  Good shading, especially on the light skirt colour.

Thank you Tombwalker, I was using Reaper Golden Skin 9092 as the base color.

Very good job!

 

I love the blouse and skirt!

 

Thank you Glitterwolf, once again trying to choose between dark and cyberpunky or something a bit more colorful and the colorful side won.

Good job on the white skirt - that's one of those things I have a really hard time with! Interesting hair - kinda like a mullet/bob.

It started out as leather white and then some washes of deeper colors, greys and blues with some dark elf triad in there, and then highlighted with white.

Nice job!  I like the color scheme you chose and the gun manages to stand out without looking silly metallic and I like how the jacket came out too, nice looking leather!

 

These figures all had a common problem for me though:  the arms thrown wide pose.  It does allow a good access for painting the mini but you gotta wonder what she's actually doing; looking for a hug in the middle of a gunfight?

She is a BEAUTY. Your brushwork is OUTSTANDING, but it is the LOVELY array of color you chose that make the miniature for me. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks very much Kangaroorex!

I'm trying to make the guns for the most part dull black with a black base, and then some highlights of purples, blues, greys and eventually whites.

 

With a lot of the older figures the poses weren't so dramatic, but created for easy casting I think, and with that came those open arm "I just want to hug you" poses.  I'm guessing too back then, these were pieces more for gaming than display so easy and quick painting was a positive detail, which I'm guessing it still is (Stonehaven miniatures)?

Beautiful work, the makeup and her shirt are especially eye catching. Very well done.

Thanks Metalchaos! It's kind of fun painting these more "modern" wardrobes and color schemes, a bit different than fantasy.

Thanks Malefactus, choosing colors is sometimes so hard for me.  Being she was a corporate type mage, I wanted her to have colors that I hoped looked like she could go rain fire and bullets down on somebody and then go back to her office to file a report about it.

      And another Shadowrun figure, the third figure from what was originally a three piece set of Elven subtypes.
       
      This dapper gentleman is a Wakyambi, which from what I read on line (haven't ever actually ever played Shadowrun or own any of the gaming books), he's an African Elf Subtype, tall and thin.  He was fun to paint, but his dingly dangly stuff eventually just made me cry for mercy in the hopes I would someday finish. His necklace and his little staff had quite a bit of details to it, as well has his funky monkey belt buckle.
       

       
      and here is the set in its entirety, not completely great focus, but it's hard to get three figures to focus nicely:
       

       
      So three more finished, I wonder how many more I can get done before I go to the great beyond?  Hopefully 50 or more per year for another thirty to forty years, but we'll see....

      Hello to all you bovine aficionados!
       
      So a while back ago I did a normal minotaur, Greek-type mythological beast with an axe on two legs.   This one is a little different, it's a Shadowrun Minotaur which has a bull's body and a "primate" face.  I think Jim Johnson sculpted it back in the nineties, as usual forgot to check for a date on the bottom.  Pretty straight forwards colors, and it's actually kind of a big and heavy model. Put him on an oval base because there was no way he was going to fit on a normal size circle one:
       

       
      Anyhoos, hope you guys all enjoy him!

      Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
       
      So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
       
      I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      and here is a close up of her eyes.  Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly.  From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology.  I never had these issues back in the eighties.

       
      Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres.  This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
       
      So back to the painting table!  Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!
