In an unusual turn of events, I ended up painting the same miniature three times this week. First one was for a customer who wanted the bard from Dark Sword Miniatures but without the pipe in his hand. So it was replaced with a glowing musical note. Red armour, blue clothes, yellow cloak. While I was working on it, a different customer wanted the same bard but just a quick paint job for a sidekick NPC in his D&D game. Of course, no pipe for the second bard either. Brown armour, green cloak. I think I spent more time on the base than painting him. While I was working on the second one, the first customer decided he didn't like the colour scheme and could I change a couple of things. No problem, I'm happy to do it. But there is OSL and all kinds of other stuff, so it was actually much easier just to start again from scratch. So I painted him a third time. Red cloak, grey clothes.

After well over a year of the Shelf of Incompleteness she is done! Part of the reason she hung around there that long is because she was the first figure in a long while that I wanted to extend higher than my usual tabletop level into display level and part of the way thru I hit a wall. In doing so I learned where my current limits are. This was also my first attempt at painting sheer clothing. Her hair came out better than expected considering this turned into a speed paint when I got back to her.
The Witch of November mayhap?
Save a Broom, Ride a Pumpkin!
One of the best faces I've done, although the flash makes it hard to see the subtle contrasts in the skin/lips. Which tends to be my main difficulty in painting pale skin is finding the right amount of contrast.

I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did.
Dominant paints used:
Punk rock pink 09286
Marid blue 89526
Clear magenta 09098
Regal purple 09238
Clear purple 09099
Nightmare black 09280
Fair skin 09047
Dark elf skin 09164
Pure black 09037
Pure white 09039
Let me know what you think!
Last year I painted Reaper's Halloween Knight with - I think - some success (you can check the mini on my Insta account, @albertnyarla); so I decided to start a tradition and pay hommage to my favourite festivity this year too.
Here I went with one of my favourite horror tropes, the Witch, with this fantastic Witch Coven by Reaper, under the "Tree of Despair" from Bones IV, with a couple hommages to good horror movies. Had to refrain myself to include even more references to avoid getting it too crowded.
Overall, I'm happy with the outcome. It will mean everything (if you like it) to give it a like and maybe a follow on Instagram, it really helps with motivation ^^
