The 'Mere is a Cruel Mistress

Recommended Posts

I do love that cape. And the eyes on both minis. You definitely pimped the pewter. ::D:

 

I always worry about offering criticism, but as you welcomed it, I'll offer my thoughts? I think your colors look good overall. I can only comment on two things:

  • The angle of the arm holding the flowers looks unnatural. I skimmed through your WIP post, I think it said that you bent the arm into position? Cutting it off and reattaching might give a more natural feel to it.
  • I'm having difficulty seeing highlights and shadows on the crown/tiara/whatever. It might just be the photos or lighting though.

I very much like it.

Thanks so much! 

I wondered if the arm would still look unnatural. I think the problem is at the shoulder, and not the elbow, so I'm not sure how I would reattach it? Totally open to suggestions on that. 

And you are 100% correct, I haven't finished her tiara! I got caught up in the 'done'. Lol. I will have to fine-toothed comb it once I can see it with new eyes. 

Thanks again! I really do welcome all comments, be they complementary or critical!

Oh wow, I'm so glad you showed us this, it looks great ::D: Love the cape and the way the tail looks through the resin.

I think it's a wonderful piece!

Great idea.

 

About that arm, it depends, to me it looks like he's offering the flowers and then when she gets closer he pulls away a bit, maybe he's trying to lure her closer?

This came out great; I completely understand the apprehension you had before the pour and I'm glad to see that it all worked out. 

 

As to the outstretched arm with the flowers I think it works if one thing is added. If a sheathed dagger were attached to his waist with the hilt pointed toward his left hand it would give credence to the idea that he is trying to lure her closer. Of course that would also greatly change the theme of the piece but might be worth thinking about.

 

As is I think it looks great and it was fun watching your progress with this project. You certainly gave me quite a few new ideas and things to try on my next project.

It is a LOVELY & IMAGINATIVE narrative creation. I doubt I would have the courage to pour resin over a piece I had labored on as long as you did your BEAUTIFUL mermaid. VERY WELL DONE!

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/831472366/corvus-corax-miniatures-clansmen-of-caer-loch?ref=hero_thanks



      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, three projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive. Thanks to the support through Kickstarter, 17 miniatures have been made available.

      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Clansmen of Caer Loch. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).









      You can also pick up the other Corvus Corax minis from previous projects as add ons


      I've backed the previous projects and been very happy with the results

      This little guy is number 2 of 3 posts for now. 
      He was a lot of fun to paint up! His little spine-dies were fairly interesting to paint!

      C&C is always welcome!

      Number 3!
      Frumitty is supposed to resemble Mort from Madagascar. Also, check out his pockets, HE HAS STRAWBERRIES! How cute is that? I love that Jason Wiebe took the time to sculpt little strawberries. :D
       
      C&C is always welcome!

      I just love this little guy!! I've been on a 'woodland critter' kick for a bit, and I'm so glad to have finished this guy. I'm working on a diorama for Reapercon, so that's why he doesn't appear to be based. 
      Let me know what you think! C&C is always welcome and appreciated!

      I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure.
      The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper.
      I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it.
      It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.
