Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell. As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space. So I did what I could. Anyway hope you all enjoy!
Laurana came to me in the old LTPK 2 as one of my very first minis in 2010 or so. This set even had the old Pro Paints in it, almost all of wich gave up on me a long time ago. Only Ruddy Flesh and the Copper Metallic Paint are left, both are still among my workhorse paints.
While Laurana's companion Tsuko was painted up fairly quickly, I struggled with painting her forever. First the scroll would not come out right, and then the eyes turned out to be a major problem for me - you see, the pupils of the eyes are sculpted, so my usual strategies didn't work for her.
But after years and years on my shelf of shame she's finally done! Once I got past the scroll and the eyes she was actually a joy to paint. Also, I really like the expressive pose.
So here she is, c&c very welcome!
This was an experiment with color. I decided to give the Limited Palette challenge a try last night. The challenge is 3 colors, plus black and white. Specifically, the three colors must be a blue, green, and pink. I chose cyan blue, gnoll pelt, and cactus flower. I'm quite happy with how she came out, for a figure I wasn't terribly interested in to begin with.
Sorry, my camera could not handle a close-up of the face.
For anyone wondering about the red hair, a strange thing happens when you mix cactus flower and gnoll pelt....
The base is from Secret Weapon.
How do you make an octopus laugh? You give him ten tickles!
Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff. I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once. Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving.
You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned out. It's not the most accurate, but I'm proud of it. It definitely has given me greater confidence in my ability to make something out of nothing.
