77094 Trista, the White Wolf by Patrick Keith

I think the make-up works. The blush and the lipstick look really good and the eye shadow is a really clever way to bring that green into the upper part of the model.  The NMM really turned out as well.  The blending on the pauldron in particular turned out really impressive.  The weathering is the only part that seems to still be missing something to me.  Maybe a thin black/dark brown line across the top of the weathering lines could give it some depth in future attempts.  She turned out really great though.

Thanks for the thoughts.  I was going more for cracks or scratches than cuts or gouges, if that makes sense.  I appreciate your comments.

Her make up is awesome!

She looks very much alive because of it.

You've done a great job.

 

The only minor thing, if her leather stuff is weathered that means she has been wandering/fighting/using it a lot without much chance of maintenance.

In my opinion that should also apply to her shield and armor, meaning there should be a litlle wear and tear then or maybe even dirt/blood.

But this is nitpicking, and she looks great!

Thank you.

I agree about the armor needing some weathering too.  After getting it to this point I just couldn’t force myself to muck it up.

Totally understandable since it looks great!

      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!

      This past week I painted the Djinni figure from the Fan Favorites set.     When I first saw this figure in the Kickstarter, being a child of the 60's and 70's, the first image that flashed in my mind was Jeannie from the classic  I Dream of Jeannie TV show.   I knew that this was the color scheme I wanted to use on my Djinni figure. :)  
       
      I made a couple changes to the figure.  First, I separated the lamp portion of the integral base so I could mount it on a different base; and Second, I mounted the sword the correct way as it is shown in the concept art, not upside down and left-handed as the figure comes.
       
      Here's the write-up on my Bones Blog: Djinni Painting Article

      This is the biggest "miniature" I've ever painted.  I would not have even looked at it if someone hadn't asked me to paint it. It was a great challenge and a great learning experience.  I love his slightly goofy "intoxicated" facial expression.
