Ziba, Monster Lady WIP

Recommended Posts

This pretty lady jumped straight to the front of my painting queue, and it was about time I painted another Reaper mini:-




Here she is, all cleaned up and undercoated in primer.


Got a little further today:-




Not going down the red skin route, so Ziba is currently covered in a basecoat of 1:2 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Wash.


Aiming to get her skin finished tonight.

And once more, I love her skin! Keep it up (Try some more blending on her skirt!)


I will try, I've been practising on another mini.



Haven't been able to paint much lately, but I did work on her face:-




Her skin was finished with highlights of 1:2 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin, 1:2:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin and 1:2:3 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin, she got lips (1:2:3:3 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Bloody Red with some Flesh Wash), fangs (Iraqi Sand) and eyes (despite my best efforts, they ended up very cat-like).


Gotta get the rest of her skin done now.

What undercoat primer did you use? It really helps to pop those highlights & shaded areas. 


It's just Vallejo White Primer with an Agrax Earthshade Wash.







Still don't feel like working on her skin, so she got hair instead.

Kept it simple, so it's a basecoat of 1:2 Red Leather/Ochre Yellow, highlighted with pure Ochre Yellow and then given a Sepia Wash all over, with a Brown Wash in the deepest recesses and underneath parts.


Not sure what part I'll work on next.

Thanks guys!



Finally made a bit of progress:-




She got horns (Night Blue > 1:1 Night Blue/Ghost Grey > Black Wash) and a shoulder-pad (Scarlett Red > Black Wash > 1:1 Scarlett Red/Orange Fire > 1:1:1 Scarlett Red/Orange Fire/Pale Yellow > 1:1:2 Scarlett Red/Orange Fire/Pale Yellow with a Sky Blue eye and Iraqi Sand teeth), I think I may need to knock back those shoulder-pad highlights a bit.


And since I hade some left over, I basecoated her dress in Hexed Lichen.

And more progress:-




Finished off her skin on her right shoulder, boobs, left arm and hand.

Basecoated some of her decorations and armour trims in Bronze with a Brown Wash, did some scales in Magic Blue with a Black Wash and one sword blade in Oily Steel with a Black Wash.


Next will be finishing off those areas and moving on to the next.


No, I do not understand why I'm painting random areas.

The eyes are amazing!  You always manage to make the eyes pop so well.


I also love her hair.  So simple but lots of depth.


I really struggle with eyes and hair so I am always impressed with you work.
