Voting here is a very hard task, because they are all cool, but I actually I also vote for Lady Death because the whole scene you built up looks for me very Tim Burton style (which I love) and this Lady Death matches simply too well with the whole scene. Good luck in finding the sculpt somewhere.

 

Concerning the paintjobs and figures in the beginning of this thread: Hey it seems we both have got a pretty similar taste in sculpts. A lot of what you have painted here was also on my desk a couple of years ago and some are still unpainted like the Harpy by Freebooter for example. I like them and concerning the shading and highlighting and such we are working at this point already. For me a miniature is already cool if the basecolours are applied in a clean way, because this looks already good. Additional work makes it better, good, amazing, incredible, breathtaking. Depending on what painting level one wishes to reach. This normally happens by itself with time and so let the way unfold in its own pace.

Edited the number of votes.

Oh about finding the sculpt?

They are all very cool, but I think skull face would look coolest with your current paint style.

 

Edited, she's winning.

 

Hm...what is my painting style in this case?

What do people expect?

 

If she is the chosen one, then will she be painted with a plain skull or a dias de muerta face?

It seems Lady Death in a Sugarskull version is the winner.

 

But before she can claim victory..

I got a message!

 

@Mad Jack is sending me one of these.

She will definitely get painted anyway, but maybe you guys want to vote for her?

I would go with whichever mini you view as the easiest to paint of the group & save the hard ones for later when you have a feel for the minis.

My friends who raised French Napoleonics tended to paint the Old Guard first, making their elites the worst painted unit in the army.

I hear you!

I think I can manage either of them, I love painting evil ladies especially vampires/necromancers.

 

They will all get paint sooner or later, I was just wondering who would look best in front of that crypt and interacting with some death hounds.

As for those death hounds, these are the Bones version, I also have a few of the very very old Citadel metal Chaos Hounds. The 80's style ones.

I could also use those or a mix.

Assembled the crypt and added some steps.

 

The gaps will be filled later and there will be moss and stuff like that.

      As part of my goals for this year, one of them was to actually paint a Sophie - so here is my version of the 2017 ReaperCon Sophie. She was fun to paint, but was she fiddly to put together and I had to fight paint chipping all the way through. Next time I will remember to give the model a good wash before priming! You can click on the pictures for the larger versions, and one day I will invest in a tripod and get the exposure settings dialed in properly as well!
       
      For those interested, the WIP thread is located over here.

      This is Tiriel from Hasslefree Miniatures that I painted in TMM. She was a much needed fun figure to help keep my motivation going as I work on other larger projects as I tend to loose focus if I work on something too long with out finishing.

      Bob Ridolfi's Graveflesh Servant (aka Bride of Frankenstein) in Bones.  I tried to get some different flesh tones on her various parts, do some bruising at the wounds, and not-exactly-sheer fabric effects.  Spent far less time on it than I should have.

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      So to wrap up one of my 2020 goals, I figured I would start on actually *gasp* painting a Sophie! I have no less than 3 in my stash, and I figured I would start practicing some concepts from all of my learning while I was at it..
       
      I decided to pick the ReaperCon 2017 Sophie and since she has somewhat of an aquatic theme to her, I am going to shamelessly "borrow" some ideas from Disney...because why not...
       

       
       
      I did my usual priming routine but -THIS TIME- I added an additional directional light to reinforce a direction.
       
      Also, I have turned back to inks for some foundation work. This time incorporating Sepia, Orange, and Yellow for the wings. Glazing over the transitions established by the airbrush to set the initial values and tones.
       

       
      I followed up by using Reaper Burgundy Wine, Tanned Flesh and Fair Skin for the skin tones, including a bit of FW White Ink to lighten up the brightest highlights. I used Kimera Kolors magenta + White Ink and hit her lips. I might come back with a bit brighter color to hit the lip gloss sheen.
       
      I still need to work on blending the transitions between light and dark areas, and as well as obviously hit the arms and legs more.
       

       
       
      I also wanted to capture "Ariel's" aqua-emerald eyes. and I am REALLY happy how they came up this time. It doesn't hurt that this sculpt did a very good job of sculpting the eye area. So super-duper zoom to see the tiny eyes.
