Sparrow paints a Frost Giant Queen

Recommended Posts

I decided to leave the eye. Need to figure out how to paint scars so it looks intentional. No idea how to do it but I'll figure something out. In the meantime I'm working on her pelt. Not sure how much difference between the browns but I might bring it up another step or two.

Sweet eyeliner work! 

I've never done any NMM work, full disclosure, but the technique I've seen used for painting scratches (thin line of dark grey for the shadowed face of the scratch, adjacent to a thin line of very pale grey for the light-reflecting face) might work for scars if one palette-swapped to pale pinkish and dark pink? (Or, given her complexion, pale lilac and darkish heliotrope?) 

Which side is dark and which is light depends on whether you want the scars to be raised keloids or gouges. 

I could see her having an Ahab-style vendetta against whatever monster or giant gave her those scars.

I've never done NMM either. I have those weapon sprues from Bones III that I plan on using for practice but that requires time to do it and right now I'm back logged. But I think that might work well. I'm thinking of doing it as a gouged scar.

I'm back to this! I need to do my best to finish quickly but with good quality. I am 4 followers away from my goal of 1000 to give it away! I've got a few progress photos to post that I didn't do previously. This is my main priority until it is finished.

I wish my best work was as good as your mistakes! Maybe if you are still thinking of a scar, just a shade darker line than her skin tone. It could look like it has faded over time.

I think I somewhere have got the old Painting Faces masterclasses of Citadel painting. There was a section on scars. If you're still looking for a solution, I can have a look if I find it and send it to you.

I am still looking for something. That'd be great! 

 

Started back up today after I was struck by illness briefly. Need to do major touch ups. Here's updated photos.

      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.

      I present to you the almost nuclear looking troll that utilizes FolkArt's Ultra Dye "Purple Rain" as its inspiration and base shadow and wash.  Also included in the skin triad are Reaper Blood Red and Reaper Brilliant Red for the highlights.
       
      I'll add the remaining paint list later when they are in front of me.  For now, pictures:

      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.
