Darcstaar vs. BONES 1: Ep. 1 - Cassie

Recommended Posts

I have begun the best thing I can think of for myself to get through my Bones I stockpile.  I went to the Kickstarter page, took screenshots of the reward pictures, and am using it as a checklist.  I’ll be shooting for tabletop+.


First up is Cassie, gnome wizard.




Mold lines addressed, cleaned, and on a rudimentary base.




Primed with Brown Liner.

Flesh tone base is Rosy Shadow.




Then working on eyes.

Nightshade Purple and Linen White so far.

And that’s all I got done today.

Dot of Royal Purple, a line of Amethyst Purple under, and a dot of Pure White in the upper right (model’s perspective).

Skin layered:

Rosy Shadow, Rosy Highlight with a touch of Rosy Shadow, and then a good amount of Fair Skin mixed in for final highlight.

Thanks!  I’m by no means a master, especially for black hair.  But I’ve come a long way and hope it helps.

Blue Liner on the robe.  Thinking of a raindrop motif freehand, but may scrap it due to “tabletop+.”

      Speed paint! I’m happy with it though. There’s a lot to paint from the Kickstarter.

      I love this model.  Even with her slightly too-long sword hilt and bendy sword.  I straightened it, but it has slowly bent again.
      This is a figure to represent a female paladin of Sarenrae for our Pathfinder Reign of Winter campaign: a redhead whose favorite color is green.  That is why she is on a snow base.
      I wanted to spend a lot of time on her, and am very happy with the blending on the gray NMM.  It took about 3 rounds of painting transitions then glazing over the lines to smooth everything out.
      I tried a little weathering to the leather scabbards and belt to make them look scratched from adventuring use. 
      This was also the first time I tried giving a female figure makeup: blush, eye shadow, and lipstick.  I'm not sure how good that came out, I'll let you all tell me.
      The sword blade was the least successful part.  It just didn't want to cooperate, which is due in part to the softer details on the casting.
      I hope you like her as much as I do.  C&C Welcome.

      This was a very fun group to paint.  They also went very fast.  I finished them in January, but just got around to photographing them.
      I can't pick a favorite, they all have so much personality.  I tried some OSL on the fire elemental's base.
      The camera settings were changed on the solo shots of the air elemental to tone down the white from overpowering.
      It ended up kind of dark.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!
