Lets do this thing.

I'm calling him Mr. Lovely Locks.

 

Made some progress:-

Done his skin so far (Dwarf Skin > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Skin > 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Light Skin), plus some 1:1 Scarlett Red/Dwarf Skin claw marks and an Old Rose nipple.

Progress:-

Painting his lovely locks.

Started with a base of 1:1 Leather Brown/Orange Fire, then took the easy route with a drybrush of 1:1 Orange Fire/Ochre Yellow followed by a Sepia Wash.

I like how the back looks, but I'm not too sure of the front.

Progress:-

(Apologies for the poorly lit piccys, didn't realise I hadn't bent my lamp over enough.)

 

Went back in with the 1:1 Orange Fire/Ochre Yellow to add some highlight to the hair where the drybrushing wasn't enough.

I'm beginning to wonder if the hair down his chest is his hair, or a fur boa of some kind (the texture on those parts is somewhat different), but I'm not convinced enough to paint it a different colour.

 

Also painted his armoured arm-warmers.

The material parts are Olive Green > 1:1 Olive Green/Ochre Yellow, the straps are Red Leather > 1:1 Red Leather/Iraqi Sand, and the bicep bands are Bronze all given a Brown Wash. The armour parts are Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash > Iraqi Sand > Bonewhite > thinned Sepia Wash.

Progress (with better pictures):-

 

7hFq9mt.jpg

 

Painted up his Beast Knuckle, the bone parts are Iraqi Sand and the teeth parts are 1:1 Iraqi Sand/Yellow Ochre given a Brown Wash.

Also painted his Gorm Horn (Gorms don't have horns though, so I shudder to think of what part it's actually made from), bone is the same as above with the fleshy part being 1:1:1 Old Rose/Dwarf Skin/Red Leather > Flesh Wash > 1:1:1 Old Rose/Dwarf Skin/Red Leather > 1:1:1:1 Old Rose/Dwarf Skin/Red Leather/Light Flesh > Flesh Wash.

More progress:-

 

AA5mPou.jpgcPINt77.jpg

 

Started on his loincloth.

The cloth parts are Medium Olive, shaded with Brown Wash and highlighted with Medium Olive and 1:1 Medium Olive/Iraqi Sand glazed with a bit of thinned Medium Olive.

There's some strap bits that are Leather Brown > 1:1 Leather Brown/Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash, with Bronze decoration.

Fur bits next.

Progress:-

 

MjHzR8e.jpgabuA21v.jpg

 

Realised I needed to do his boots before I did the fur. Used the same colours as I did for his arm-warmers, except the cloth parts are Red Leather > Brown Wash > Red Leather > 1:1 Red Leather/Iraqi Sand.

Then I did the fur (Stone Grey > Ghost Grey > Grey Wash),  the Grey Wash went on a little thick (I think it's getting a rather old) but I don't think it looks too bad.

 

Just got his potion bottle to go.

Progress:-

Painted up the potion bottle. The filled section is Squid Pink with a 1:1 Squid Pink/Off-white highlight, the empty bit is Ghost Grey with an Off-white highlight.

Also did the light in his lantern 1:1 Orange Fire/Yellow Ochre.

 

Just the base to go.

It is a microphone!  And we all know what he's singing....

 

A wheemaway...a wheemaway....

 

That or Jon Bon Jovi finally made it into miniature form.........

 

Nice work so far. I like that the colors currently are natural looking. With the lion looking a tad bit weird( the hands? paws? really throw me off), nice to see the humans (or at least one) will have normal colors. Nice color choice for the potion too, makes it stand out nicely.

Thanks!

It wouldn't be a Kingdom Death creature if it didn't have human hands somewhere.

 

Lovely Locks is all done:-

I've started her skin with a base of 1:1 Flat Flesh/Rosy Skin and a Flesh Wash, I need my hands to be less shaky before I start highlighting.

Looks good!

 

Who in his right mind would want to hunt a Lion like that with primitive weapons?

      Presenting Mr. Lovely Locks (aka Gadrock), a character from the game Kingdom Death:- Monster. He's prepared to face the unspeakable horrors lurking in the darkness with nothing more than a jawbone knuckleduster and an overgrown fringe.
       
      Really pleased with this one, I'm happy with how his skin turned out and I didn't make a mess painting all those cuts he's acquired. 
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Well then ... it's done! We ... are done. After a rather short ride, I finally arrived at the end. Five minutes before lock-down I handed in my "Animals in War" painting challenge entry. As always, it consists of a small background story, together with a more or less well painted miniature.

      I am not all to happy with it, I could have done a lot better, but it's okay. And in the end, I messed up the pictures as well. The good thing is: I could have done worse. *sigh* But well - can't help it. So, here she comes.
       
      I tried to translate the original text to English, so if there are mistakes ( I am sure there will be) feel free to correct me.
       
      As always: Feel free to comment, but if you just want to say "nice" or "cool", leave a like instead, because I value those as a nod to my participation in the forums. I really don't need "cool"s or "nice"s.
       
       
      The Light Fantastic
      She sat by the wall, held her breath and listened.
      After a while, the tripping of many feet broke through the silence.
      Carefully the warrior woman looked up. She expected to see the enemy's face at any moment. But nothing like that happened.
      Instead, she could hear a voice, sending shivers down her spine. A calm, mocking pronunciation, unmistakable and probably unique in the world.
      "Hey, Evi," the unknown speaker shouted, "You can show yourself. I know you're out there."
      She took a deep breath, smiled grimly and pressed the lamp tighter to her chest.
      Yes, of course. He knew. He wasn't stupid. Quite the opposite. He was very intelligent - considering the fact he was a baboon. Call it arrogance, but it had been a mistake of the humans to believe monkeys to be of lower intelligence.
      It was the humans who were stupid. I renewed attempts, the succeeded in raising the intelligence of the primates to a level that even they could not reach. Made a joke about it - called them "Spartavians".
      Until that day, when the monkeys founded the SAS, the Special Ape Service, and began to overrun the human centers of civilization. The humans had no chance against the highly gifted animals - and soon they found themselves in a Stone Age created by the primates.
      All in the name of nature.
      But Evi was not willing to give all the power to the very hairy attackers.
      "Come out, come out, wherever you are! What is it? Have you lost your voice?," the Spartavian asked.
      She looked at the lantern in her hand. The light was dim, it's flame almost extinguished. It had used up most of its fuel over the long time of her mission.
      She sighed, then took a deep breath and turned the handle - which actually was an ignition mechanism. It clicked into place. A crunchy sound appeared. Suddenly, the light flickered as if it had just been supplied with new life energy.
      Evi counted quietly to three, rose up a little and threw the lantern as high as she could over the wall. With an almost inaudible noise the explosive disappeared from her field of vision.
      Nerve-shattering heartbeats later the clapping sound of two hands catching an object sounded.
      "But ... that's a lantern! I always wanted to have one like that"; the monkey remarked enthusiastically. "Wonderful! It will make a great addition to my front doo ..."
      A hollow bang cut off his last words.
      Slowly the warrior woman rose from her hiding place, wiping her mouth and nose. She breathed theatrically before addressing the just blown-up enemy. "Yippieyayeh! ape-face," she spat towards the quickly evaporating cloud of smoke.
      "Evi!" With a weak plop, similar to the distant bursting of a synapse, Evi returned to reality and looked up.
      The baboon on the other side of the fence stared at her with a mentally deranged look, then shrugged his shoulders and turned away.
      "Evi! I don't like it when you play around in front of the monkey house," Mama said sternly. "What will the neighbours think of use, when they see you talking to baboons?"
      "Child, you have too much imagination," Grandma said laughing before turning to Mama. "Maybe she should watch less television?"
      "I'll suggest it to Harold," Mama nodded and took her daughter away from the monkey cage. "But now we're going to the saltwater aquarium."
      "Saltwater? Are there any sharks?" the girl asked hopefully.
      "Sharks?" Mama laughed. "No. But little whales."
      The girl's eyes widened. "Whales?" she asked in disbelief.
      A small puddle in front of them started to move. At first the water only seemed to vibrate, rippled and splashed quietly, then it exploded into a fountain.
      A huge humpback whale emerged from the seething floods and crashed onto the floor slabs of the path.
      The huge monster crawled towards them on its pectoral fins, the remains of an arm hanging out between bloody, shredded baleen plates.
      "Hello Evi," the scarred monster greeted her with a sinister pirate voice. "I have learned how to eat meat."
      The warrioress Evi pulled her knife out of the sheath. A light smile crept on her lips, waited there for a moment and vanished, making room for an answer that you could only expect from any good warrior. "And I know how to fillet fish."

      A little while ago, I got a full set of metallic paints in vibrant primary colors.  I immediately felt like there was huge potential to this- you could use them to add all sorts of extra depth and interest to True Metallic techniques.
      And one of the things that struck me was the idea that you could use them for feathers.  With many birds, feathers already have a sort of metallic shine to them, so it isn't too crazy to consider using true metallic techniques to express this.
      While I initial was afraid that it would be hard to keep the phoenix from looking inanimate -like a bronze statue of a bird, rather than a bird.  To my surprise, I didn't have to do a lot of corrections for this, since the mini really never was in much danger of looking too inorganic.

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
       
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.

      Presenting the Leather Queen, a Pin-up version of the Leather Armoured Survivors from Kingdom Death, hopefully she's wearing just enough to not need a nudity link.
       
      I'm pretty out of practice painting Pin-ups so she's a little rough around the edges, and I never could figure out a way to make her hair look like hair, but at least it's another one finally finished.
