The skin tone is great and the white hair adds some nice contrast. 

Thanks KruleBear!   She is a pretty simple miniature, really just three components, skin hair and dress so I wanted some colors that would hopefully create some interest.

Awesome as always. You pick some great classics to bring to life.

Some might say my miniature tastes are a bit odd...

they'd probably be right..

 Odd is in, conformity is out ;)

 

Actually for an Evil Witch she's kinda hot, reminds of the witch in the first Conan movie.

The hot witches are the ones you really have to be careful about. Those old hag types are the easy ones to spot, but remember old Conan, he was ready to get a bit of boom chicka boom with that witch, but found out pretty quickly she was bad news.

Tiny, creepy and a beautiful paintjob.

It always astounds me how you can paint such tiny minis so well.

Your colour choices for her really work well together. 

Very nicely done!

 

Plus that’s a great sculpt and pose.

 

If this was a current mini she  would be on my want list for sure.

She looks great - love the contrast of her white hair against the dark skin.

Thank you Warlady!

Not sure how well I do them, but then one is always ones own greatest critic. Thanks!

As luck may have it, and not to plug another brand, but you can get her out there at Iron Wind Metals still.  DF-366 would be the code you'd want to look for or the search word "witch".

Very nice, as always.

 

I also love the Dark Elf Skin triad, although I believe it's been discontinued. I used some when I was painting a pirate as a Negro, and while I unfortunately forget the formula, I was super happy with how his skin tone looked.

If it's been discontinued I will get really, really, really depressed.  I use it for lots of shading different colors as well.

It looks like it's still in the store!

 

I had to go check, because I use the dark elf triad for everything too

I just can join the choir: Great painting again and top colour selection. This looks really good with the dark skin and the white hair. I see some shadows at the white hair by the way. Face is great again as always ::D:

      I am not good at telling stories on paper.  my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself.  this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s.  The piece is high lead content.  so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told). 
       
      The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving.  The setting on the box seems to be some type of sulfur spring or volcanic hot spring and I get the impression of stillness of morning broken only by the shriek of an enraged mother.
       
      I went pretty classic on this one, going with the red dragon and robin blue eggs like the box art but decided that the spines and chest plates should be more contrast than the slightly darker red of the box.  I took the original base pieces included in the box and expanded them to a small diorama of a hotspring using Magic water, a transparent epoxy to create the water around the spring.  The resin developed a little bit of a lip at the edge but I wasn't willing to cut it down and risk the clarity of the water by trying to sand and polish the resin. (its more rubbery that solid and difficult to polish -- I tried on two sample pieces and it didn't work out well.)
       
      anyway the WIP is here if your interested:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94482-a-new-year-a-new-old-dragon/
       
      and here are the images of the final project.  Hope everyone has as much fun looking as I did creating this.  Feel free to comment and question away as always.  The project was a lot of fun and the they got the expression of the egg thief who is looking back to see an enraged mother dragon bearing down on him just about right!
       



      One shot from the human's perspective to give an idea of the trouble they are in....



      And one from a mothers perspective as she hones in on the ones who are trying to steal her precious eggs!

      Tere Reaperlased! 
      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur
       
      Julie Guthrie Hill Giant
       
      Julie Guthrie Centaurs
       
       
      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      Hello everyreaperbody! 
      So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize.  Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one.  Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby.  I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago.  Don't have any pictures of the original set unfortunately, and then I went and sold them on eBay for I don't remember at all how much.  So I'm glad I got a hold of another copy to do again and keep.
       
      I'll probably be putting them on super-simple bases in the near future, just so they don't fall over.
       
      So anyways, hope you enjoy!
