Well I said it already I have started a lot of wips and I`m painting at all from time to time and nothing gets finished. :lol:

 

Lorna The Huntress is a cool sculpt I ever wished to paint and now finaly I started it. I have got 3 wips already and you missed the first 2 ones and so I made a photo collage for you to see the other wip stages too.

 

Here you can see what I was talking about already: I start messy. I don`t mind about clean painting at all, but with time it all becomes more clean, finer, it gets more depth, more contrast, more vibrant colours and so on. This is the way I work.

 

I have no real concept for her and still consider about a base. Ideas are most welcome ::D:

 

I have to link her for nudity I`m afraid and the bad news are: My image hoster compressed the images. Aaaaargh. Images are too small, but I hope you see enough. Next time I can upload single photos to my image hoster and because of a different size they won`t be compressed like this big collage. For the final photos of the finished Miniature I will post a link to my homepage and there you also can see all angles of her. Nothing is finished here and I will go on working out all details more.

 

As always: All feedback is appreciated.

Cheers,

Hello Yvonne, first of all I don't think this mini may be considered "nude" and break the forum rules, as every revealing part of the body is covered ^_^

And if you think that you start messy, don't know what do you consider a clean start -_-

Anyway she looks already perfect to me, so I do not really understand how she's at wip lvl, but for the raw base.
The NMMs already sell, the skin looks wonderful, the hairs look black to my eye, even if you have put so many hi-lights... when I try it always turn blue, or brown... <_<
The only idea that comes out to me, as she show so much skin, is to add some war tattoos in some tactical spots, just to add some variance :blush:

Finally, she already looks amazing!

She looks beautiful. Her skin is smooth, the hair is mostly perfect, the gem shines bright and the NMM pop's out. What else will you do to her? For me she looks finish. But i know you are a perfectionist and i think you'll paint hours on her still she is perfect for you ::):

Are you sure??? Look twice. I have painted her nipple on the left side watched from your position. It is to see, at least on larger photos.

You would wonder, really. I know awesome painter who paint 100% superclean up from the very first brushstroke they make. But that`s not my way. I first paint a rough sketch and work it out with time.

You will see the difference when it is finished. Of course the overall look is good so far and I could stop it, but I still have fun in painting her and there are improvements possible. You will see.

Yep I considered this, but first I have got other things to complete at her and after this is done I think about if I still have got the nerve to paint a tattoo in addition.

Working out the highlighting better, add depth, increase the contrast at the nmm, go on working at her face, increase contrast at the hair, go on working on the blendings and highlights of her skin and so on and so on and last but not least building a base of course.

Don`t know how long she will take in addition. I`m far now and so I don`t think that it will take much time, but yes for me she is not finished. You know me well ::D:

Thanks for feedback.

 

@Cyradis and Glitterwolf: Thank you both for watching and for the feedback ::D:

I was thinking the same, I have seen Lorna many times on this forum without needing links, but yeah, that nipple makes it nude..

 

Anyway, love this!

Yep I know, normally Lorna has no nipples which are to see, but in fact this is wrong, because the one nipple has to be painted, at least if Lorna is a normal human :lol:

The sculptor didn`t sculpt it, but her top is sculpted in a way that there has to be a nipple. As said at least if Lorna has got a pretty normal anatomy like every other woman. In fact it is only the half of the nipple LOL. So: I painted the lower half of a nipple here, because this is anatomic correct.

      Here's a simple conversion I made some years ago.  I thought I'd posted him before, but apparently not.  Not my best painting, but my favorite PC none the less.

      always luv pirate's and a mind flayer, woot. Had trouble deciding the clothing for him but that decided to just go with a leather like feel.

      I decided today is a good day for showing you the truth
       
      Originally my plan was to post my wips up from the very beginning for one reason and that is for you to see that there is no need to fear the paint. This is the most important lesson I`ve learnt through all this years of painting: Don`t fear the paint!!!
       
      You can mess around with acrylics same way like you can do with oil paints. You can put them wet in wet in on the figure and just mess around with them how you like. You just have to take care that your layers of paint are not as thick that the paint obscure some fine details, but apart from that you can simply push and pull it around in a (semitransparent rather opaque consistency) on the miniature in a quite chaotic way and I tell you this is massive fun. This is the most joyful part in painting, because you don`t need to be carefully at all. This is also a very good way for practising and learning highlighting, because you can try out different light scenarios, before you make your final decision.
       
      This is what I call: Making first a very rough sketch.
       
      This is the stage where you can simply try things. If you don`t like it....no problem, just paint it over and try a different sketch of the highlighting. The problem with starting very clean up from the very beginning is: You are not flexible anymore. You fear to damage what you have already painted and you stick to something which is might not the best solution, but you stick to it, because you have already spent a couple of hours with painting it up to this stage and this blocks your creativity.
       
      Unleashed creativity starts always with chaos. The chaos gives you the chance to change your direction again and to try out a couple of things before you make your final decision.
       
      Most of my actual wips are far beyond the chaos stage already, but Gandalf is right now in the absolutely chaos stage and so I have got the chance to post at least one of the wips which are at the very, very beginning. I just spent a very short time with him until now and what you see here is only a very first and rough sketch of the osl. As you see, I ignore all other details and I just mess around with my paints for to find out which way the osl might look good in the end. So this is all in heavy progress/movement. Can be that the next wips look completely different, but the overall direction became gradually clear for me in the meantime.
       
      OSL:
      Well this is a complicated OSL because:
      - There is coming white light from above from his staff
      - There is coming orange light from the Balrog in front of him
      - And for making it finaly complicated there is also coming light from below (he is standing on such a stone bridge) because in the abyss there are a lot of torches at the walls below.
       
      So I have to paint 3 lightsources here. 1 in white and 2 in orange and red (fire colours).
       
      Everything here is just done very rudimentary. This is why all looks very unclean and messy, but this is actually exactly the way my paintjobs all look in the very beginning.
       
      Technique: For the moment I just mix the light colours (white, orange, red) with the grey of his robe and with dark grey at the shadows and I apply it very quickly and combine wet in wet with some very rough and quick layering with more opaque paints for making fast progress. I do absolutely not care about cleanliness. I`m not sure yet about the reflections at the sword and try different things here right now. At the moment the osl looks more like rust than like light, but it is just because it is not workout yet. Later the highlights will be more orange and brighter and then it will work. What you see here are rather the midtones of the osl.
       
      Concept: Simply the movie scene which means that the base will be a piece of this stone bridge he is standing on in the movie. Not a big deal.
       
      The challenge here is not the base, but this complicated OSL, his face will also be challenging. Well here it is, don`t get a shock

      I painted a raptor.

      He was a speed paint to let out some steam.

      Having just a little bit offtime at the moment, but this gives me at least the chance to post a second recent/actual wip. It is Titania by Hasslefree and I`m really in love with this sculpt. Yes she is very tiny, but nevertheless good to paint I think. Apart from that she is really beautiful and I enjoy each brushstroke at her and I have pleasure in working her skin out as good as possible.
       
      This is first the second wip photo, but I`m painting at her since a while already and she looks almost finished. I will go on painting her a little bit and I still consider about a freehand at this piece of fabric she is holding in her hand, but I`m not sure yet.
       
      Concept:
      My plans are to create a nice magical forest base for her. I wish to sculpt a tree with a face and he is looking at her bottom and smiles haha. Apart from that a bit water, mushrooms, little animals, maybe glowing crystals or colourful flowers and so on. As always: I could need your help when it comes to building up the base.
       
      As always: All kind of feedback is appreciated If you have questions concerning painting technique and/or which paints/colours I used, feel free to ask.
