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 ::D: If you have questions concerning painting technique and/or which paints/colours I used, feel free to ask.

I think, she's perfect for a night-at-the-lake-style diorama. You know? Like she's about to go swimming and the tree is behind her watching her like an old pervert.

For the base, I'd summon @malefactus. If you need any ideas on trees, mushrooms and so on, he's number 1 here.

@SisterMaryNapalm: No, night on the lake will not work, because the colours and the highlighting are painted like it is daylight. For a night scene I should have used darker and colder colours and so on. No need to summone Malefactus at the this stage, because I will make the base first in maybe 2 months or so. But thanks. I hope he will help me then when I`m ready to start with it.

Yeah well, daylight is also fine. I mean - the scenario will be the same: Sexy girl goes swimming, tree's watching. I like it. And even if you do something completely different, it will totally be worth the time watching.

 

Okay, then I understood it the wrong way. I thought you were already about to work on the base.

No not at all. I first finish a paintjob completely and then it can happen that I even put it away for a while before I actually start to make the base. I will post evertything related Titania here in this thread. You will see it then.

To paint skin is a challenge. And somedays I'll accepted this an will try to do so. But as perfect as your skin tone on Titania, this will be a long way. Especially to paint the smooth skin from women, it's all but not easy. I stay tuned for the updates.

She looks beautiful!

 

As for the water, for my Komodo Dragon I used UV Resin Gel from Greenstuffworld, I think for a shallow pond/ river section this will be very easy to work with.

Smaller puddles, use Vallejo Still Water.

 

Looking forward to see the base.

Very nice! I like the subtle use of violets in the cool shading on her skin and the gentle satin of her purple draperies. Her hair is excellent too - whites are tricky.

Wow, those are beautiful skin tones!  I actually enjoy painting figures with little clothing because it gives me a chance to just focus on skin and faces.

 

Me too. No details which stop my brush move haha. Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks Garbosch. I`m glad you like her.

Thank you for feedback and for the tipps. I guess I will use Vallejo Still Water. I`m scared about resin water as you know LOL.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Yep the white is still tricky. I`m not entirely happy with it. We will see how it turns out in the end.

She looks like she's looking at something that just landed on her leg.  A ladybug, maybe?

 

My idea was that she is having a bath and that is why she is looking downward. That`s the reason for the idea with water on the base. A little lake or a little waterfall.

So am I, the UV Resin Gel doesn't need mixing either and dries pretty fast it needs to be exposed to UV light ( either the sun or a little UV flashlight).

The Still Water is more liquid than the Gel and needs longer to dry,

Just so you know.

 

I'm going to experiment with AK Interactive Water soon, two part resin.

It's time to overcome my fear and try other stuff, this way I will find out what I like best and what is the easiest way to create nice water.

I will share my results.

      I've previously posted Hasslefree's Velma analogue 'Louise' as a Miskatonic library assistant. High time I got the rest of the gang together.


       
      A cheap toy VW bus is key to this whole thing. The flowers and turquoise are my addition.
       

       

       
      We have Not-Fred-for-Legal-Reasons! (Barney, postapocalyptic version. No ascot, sadly, but a more dynamic sculpt.)

       
      Not-Daphne! (Felicity, also post-apoc version; she looks good with a bat)

       
      Not-Shaggy and his Great Dane! (Wolsey, standard version, and Hamlet; the box of SNAX I made from a chunk of sprue)

       
      And Not-Velma (Louise, featured in another post.)

       
      More turnaround pix:

      What sorts of shenanigans would these meddling teens get up to? and why would they be hired by the circus? (Obviously, the circus doesn't want or need the regular police, even if they could help with spooky crimes.)
       

      '
       
      Shaggy would immediately volunteer to check out the midway, I think.
      "Hey Scoob! You ever had a turkey leg...wrapped in cotton candy?" 
      *doglike sounds vaguely approximating the phrase "Not yet!"*

       

       
      Daphne splits off to search for clues (there are plenty),
       
       

       
      Behold! A performer about to take a Louisville Slugger straight to the groin!

       
      Somebody has released the animals from the Beast-Tamer's act! 

       
      Good thing Barney knows how to make himself look big and loud, not like panther prey! That'll scare them off.

       
      Nothing beats legwork and research for getting to the bottom of a problem. Somebody's been embezzling and cooking the books, if Velma's calculations are correct (they are).

       

       
      Hope you enjoy...I certainly did!

      Hasslefree specializes in characterful badasses, and I thought it good to paint a few of them up like my merc Frank Russo. Meet the Major, Ekaterina, Rowen, Alex, and Tank, along with their previously posted colleagues:
       
       
       
      In several cases they have been modified or accessorized.  My FLGS had some leftover GW Bitz they were kind enough to let me plunder, and between that, a GW scout walker's leftover bitz, and Bombshell tool sprues there were plenty of canisters and accessories to go around. 
       
      Here is the Major. (Hasslefree designation Major Hoare.) I added the gas tanks and the hose to his weapon. One canister is pyrophoric, the other, an extinguisher. The Major is acutely aware of which is connected at all times. I assume the cigar is a futuristic electronic device, for that would be most unsafe otherwise. 
       

       

       
       
       
      Ekaterina appears to be one of Hasslefree's analogues to Black Widow. I added some canisters and a Bombshell machete. 
       

       

       
       
       
      Rowen here really sold me on this project. Love that dynamic and confident stroll, and the flippy hairstyle. They are very secure in who they are, even more so with a portable GW missile strapped to their back.
       

       

       
       
      Alex has access to guns and grenades but prefers sharp blades. [This mini, unlike his colleagues, comes in like six pieces; pin and glue accordingly.]

       

       

       
      And of course there is Tank. Tank is not Hasslefree, but rather a leftover GW scout walker pilot. I've posted in the past about diversity in minis, and resolved to follow through on that by giving him a souped-up wheelchair/personal mobility device with some extra bells and whistles. Tank sees your wheelchair-inaccessible stairs and is prepared to turn them into an accessible ramp of smoking rubble. GW parts plus parts from a toy car I found under a refrigerator.
       
       
       

       
       
       
      And lastly, a repaint of Bombshell's Maelee, to get her in line with the Task Force dress code. Also added a couple pouches and canisters. 
       

       

       
      Together they make a formidable team, good for spacefuture or cyberpunk settings. What sorts of mayhem mightn't they get up to...for the right price, of course?

      The new student assistant at Miskatonic's Orne Library! Already Ms Dinklage (Hasslefree's "Louise") has proven to be adept at scholarship and library science, and not easily frightened (this latter being a VERY useful job skill at Ol' Misk). When asked about her tremendous sang-froid she was evasive, mentioning 'friends from [her] summer job' and 'travels in dark corners of the earth.'  


      With some of her fellow-students:


      And with others on the library faculty:

      After giving both Buckland and the Miner a jaunty yellow-and-white scheme, it came burning hot into my mind that they should be part of a team of space roughnecks/asteroid miners/problem solvers. This is the rest of that team. 

      First, Kulgara. She's a Pathfinder model, from the 'Iron Gods' adventure, and is a techno-badelf. What a great Space Orc. I think her vambraced fists count as construction equipment, and the ridiculously huge chainsaw (with knuckle spikes, in case you have a chainsaw fight and need to punch someone?) is beautifully over-the-top. I'm not sure what the lever-matic tool on her back is supposed to be. The giant wrench is from Bombshell.



      She's definitely in the right line of work here.

       
      Next up, Sluggo, the Space Henchman. Noseless and brutish, with gangly but muscular arms and a dyspeptic expression. I thought at first of making him the same species as the Andromedans, but decided against it and gave him a pale Vampiric Flesh+Magos Purple sluglike complexion. Jetpack is Bombshell again. I love jetpacks, though I'm afraid this one gets in the way of his suspendies.
       


      Serendipitously, I remembered the weird little Slimer-like alien I had leftover from Betty, Space Heroine (50150). It, too, has a big round noseless head, rubbery aspect, wiry limbs, and short legs! Perhaps it and Sluggo here are the same species; it certainly looks like it could hench in a pinch. I'll call it Squish.
       

       
      Also got a fella in a hazmat suit with some kind of Geiger-counter sensor or such, from Hasslefree. Seen here in a routine check of goo emissions levels. Just carrying out assigned tasks, nothing suspicious here.

       
      And here's the whole greasy roustabout crew:

      Because we need more badelf fighting ladies.

      Kev White, the sculptor, seems to have paid attention during "The First Avenger." Great uniform details. But I've already got the muscular and dynamic Zenith (50080) in that role, so I went with our neighbors to the North. The shield is, again, my addition. 

       
      More angles: 

      Superhero team-up time! 

       
      And another mission (feat. Dirk Goodspeed, 50195, and Sasquatch, 50011).

       
      More Squatch:
