Such clean lines, and I like the shading/highlighting all around.  I especially like the red.  Wonderful job on the face, as well.  You weren't kidding that she's small!  Nicely done

Thanks Sentinel!  Yup, she is a petite lady! I think it's kind of helpful to give her the quarter comparison, as well as lots of the older Partha miniatures for people to appreciate really how small they are.

She looks amazing!

Thanks Glitterwolf! I'm enjoying these old Partha pieces, All Things Dark and Dangerous and the Children of the Night. Maybe someday I'll have both ranges almost completely painted. That's still years off though.

Beautiful work on her white dress and the red of the cloak is really rich and deep in color variation - another great paint up of these small oldies!

Thank you Iridil,  it was kind of hard to choose colors for her, but once I committed to a white dress with pink highlights, the rest kind of came naturally.  I kind of diverged too with the staff, I almost always just paint staffs black or brown, but this one needed to be a bit more matching her dress, and the eagle head too ended up being white, pink and purple.

She really is LOVELY. Her face is BEAUTIFULLY expressive, & your deft work with the brush & eye for colors are as SPLENDID as ever. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you Malefactus! Her face reminds me a little bit of Steffi Graff, the German tennis player. Don’t know if I spelled her name correctly.

She's lovely - you always do such beautiful, clean work.

Which is amazing if you saw my dirty, disorganized work space!  Thanks very much Warlady!

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Here are pictures of the third skeletal beast in the series. 77931, Skeletal Manticore sculpted by Julie Guthrie. Painted with Reaper MSP paint and mounted on a 2 inches base.

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is the second skeletal beast I painted last week. This is Bones model 77924, Skeletal Chimera sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added dirt and moss on it to make it look like it's freshly animated. The leaves are dry birch tree seed hulls. I picked them up in the forest and painted them before gluing them on the base. As a reference, the base is 2 inches wide.

      Good day everyone,
       
      With the dead leaves season comes harvest time. Autumn is also a time for gathering and for reflection. Like the Tuilvilanuue words say "Nilsi hentil kilta anno", it takes four seasons to make a year.
      Here are some pictures of Julie Guthrie awesome 77923 Skeletal Owlbear. I really enjoyed painting this model. The design of the skeletal beasts that Reaper recently produced is stunning. It is an archeological journey in fantasy land.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!
