This is a relatively recent paint job and I struggled with colors for a while before taking inspiration from another model and strengthening the contrast in places. I like the model but she feels very stiff and doll-like.
Or maybe she doesn't like the light in her eyes:
Fiddled around with some freehand on the back:
This is Sonya, the Maine Coon fighter from the Cats & Catacombs boxed set. I received and started painting several of the figures almost exactly one year ago, and then got into a severe funk because of COVID shutdowns. Recently I was able to pick this up and get back into it.
Hoping to get to a few of the others this spring. And the base lettering was done with a waterslide transfer.

I haven’t picked up a brush these past two weeks, so I wanted to do something this morning. Since I spent the whole day yesterday tracking down some partly finished 1/72 medieval polearm men, I naturally did something else.
Last year I showed the start of my urban fantasy project. I’ve added a few miscellaneous figures (like last year’s Gencon Reaper preliminary speed paint entry), but I’ve been stalled for a while. Today was my day to unstall, a least a little bit.
Leon, on the left, is a “Bones 91010 Houngan”. Lucia is a Hero Forge figure, of an as-yet-unnamed Fae species. (I used the bovine legs and the long fae ears.) I feel better now that I’ve gotten something done this month.
(The mat, by the way, is from Frontline Games.)
So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

Here she is.
For those interested she is a free sample on Thingieverse.
