Darcstaar vs. BONES 1. Ep 2 Callie

Recommended Posts

Here is the next figure on the list.

Callie.  I think it’s funny that episode 1 was Cassie, and right next to her is a figure with almost the same name.

She had had a weird straight warp to the lower part of her bow.  I boiled that out.  It has stayed in the corrected position for a month now.

This is after Brown Liner.  It looks like an arrow coming out of the quiver, but strange it has no fletching....From the front, maybe a finger?

Her facial features are coarse, so I’m going for a half orc or orc.  This is Troll Hide.

Thinking she’s assassin type, so going for a dark cloak.  This is 1:1 Carbon Grey:Rainy Gray.  This will allow me to highlight up and shade down, then glaze with pure Carbon Grey or black to darken it up while it smoothes things over.

A little more BCA Pink.

Added some freckles with HD Bright Turquoise.

Glazed 3 light coats of 1:1 Highland Moss:Orc Skin.  Calling the face done.  Prominent shadow, a little warmth, interest from freckles, and most important: no need for eyes!

The metal version clearly has fletching on that arrow.  I think this is a casualty of being an early Bones sculpt.

 

She's looking good so far!

Thanks for the compliment and that link, Xiwo.  That was very helpful.

Added basecoats to get a feel for her layers.  Keeping a lot of the colors the same, and drab, like a good Rogue/Ranger/Assassin.  Green liner followed by Peacock Green on the tunic/skirt and arrow fletching.  Tanned Leather on the leg guards.  Uniform Brown on the arrow shafts, bow staves, scabbard, and belt/straps.  The same Carbon Grey/Misty Grey mix on her gloves and boots.  Finally, Russett Brown on the pants, sword handle, bow handle, and quiver.

Sketched out a little freehand embellishment for the cloak, to nudge her toward Ranger.  I’m not planning anything more intricate than this, and wanted to lay the foundation early, but won’t do anything else with this until the cloak is finished.

 

Its supposed to be vine, leaf, thorn.

Funny, I went the same half-orc route due to the soft facial detail.  I really enjoyed the first go round with Cassie and am excited for round two.  Thanks for all the pictures.  Getting an in depth look into someone else's process has been fun.

Thanks everyone.

Next is a highlight with an MSP Sample Paint.  It seems to be a neutral pale green.  Not too blue, not too Olive.

I may decide to give this a glaze with a GW wash, but first I think I’ll try a thinned all over application of Grass Green mid tone.

Here I have glazed over all the green with a very dilute mix of Glaze Medium, Matte Additive, and mainly water with a little Grass Green.  This was about 3 applications.6B2978E3-C381-45CA-860E-5DDB2B546B94.thumb.jpeg.d57c72725750f285a6ee23f65048911b.jpeg

I like how it stays bright but toned down the glaring nature and chalkiness of the prior post.

Started shadowing the cloak.  Dilute Carbon Grey.

This didn’t seem dark enough, so I made it 1:1 Carbon Grey:Solid Black.

Haven’t had much time for her.

This is a dilute highlight with 4:1 Rainy Gray:Carbon Grey.

Next I plan to add a small bit of pure Rainy Grey, and some with Grass Green mixed in near the areas with green.  That will wait until tomorrow.

      Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades.
       
      My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

      Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu 
      Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think.
      The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done.
      Hope you like it:



      As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

      Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs.
      So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type?
       
      And this is the outcome:

       
      Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :)

      Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!
