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!

      Hi everyone,

      Firstly I´m pleasured to take part of this forumm . My name is Alvaro Gonzalez and Im a spanish miniatures sculptor, for last year I have been sculpting some miniatures and the time has come to pre lunch my first kickstarter campaign that I will launch in two weeks around.

      This deal with 32mm scale (23mm tall to eyesline) resin fantasy miniatures for wargames, collectors and painting. It will be a small project of 9 dwarves miniatures.

      It would be great having the support of this community for carrying on my brand.

      Got this from a eBay seller in china, not sure if it's a recast. It was a very nice cast in high density white resin. Very little clean up only had to remove some sprue nubs on some of the larger pieces not really any mould lines or flashing. 
      Haven't been able to find out much about this piece other than that it was apparently at Wonder Festival 2018. I would really like to know who sculpted it.

      Here is a little preview of Lilyana one of our core minis for that set.

      This Bombshell Miniatures' 75mm resin Tara purchased at last year's ReaperCon. She's actually a skosh over 80mm. She's also listed as 1/24th scale, which puts her a tad over six feet. The kit is four pieces - body/legs/upper arms/head, lower arms incorporating a head and sword, and a small rocky base.  The body is well toned with noticeable muscle definition. My example had a large resin blob hanging down betwixt her legs (the one time I don't check a figure for issues/parts). Anywho, Dremel to the rescue. I routed out the blob and reshaped her thighs. Since her skirt is very short, I painted in a pair of expensive solid black tactical La Perla boyshorts. Nuthin' but the best... The rest is of the casting was fine although the sword scaled out to over 40 inches and was too thick. I took some of the length off and thinned it down. I also added a scabbard, since none was included. An odd omission... I also added a secondary weapon in the form of a boot knife. The skin tones are the new Bones colors and, since she has a barbarian look about her, I imparted a somewhat dirty and sweaty look to her - no smooth boudoir look transitions here. I also toned down the highlights in her hair - barbarian vs shampoo commercial. I did add a bit of makeup to her face (contradictory, I know). All other paints are Reaper's MSPs. The base was extended with Aves Apoxie Sculpt, stippled with an old oil painting brush with kitty litter rocks and pebbles. I added pointed ears to the severed head, and painted it using the Dark Elf Skin triad.

      On top of the Sherman Jumbo, I have a new project. This is Frozen Ninja 3D's resin bust of a cloaked gal holding a small flaming dragon. I picked it up ReaperCon last fall.
       
      There are four parts: a base, a robed torsos, a hooded head, and a pair of arms holding the dragon. Over the casting was good, but there were some issues with the resin sheaving (splitting off in layers) in the arms and the underside of the torso. These were sanded down, the given a layer of putty, then further sanded down. You can see the putty in the pics.
       
      I also hollowed out the sleeves and a portion of the hood. These were filled in almost to the opening. I used a Dremel tool and ball cutters to hollow them out and tried to match the inside with the exterior folds.
       
      One unique (to me) thing is the base; there is a two-leve' base with some symbols on it, and small stone house built on top of that. The roof structure is built into the torso's back. It sure beats the usual brass rod...
       
      Pics are where I'm at so far.
       
      Qs and Cs welcomed.
