Cloud Giantess: Yephima 2.0

Recommended Posts

Outstanding paintwork you’ve done on her Corporea.

I’ve mentioned it elsewhere but I think of all your work I’ve seen, this is my favourite!

Thanks for giving this gorgeous giantess her own thread so we can all say how much we love how you painted her!  I mean, I loved the unpainted one, but you really brought her to life beautifully!

I told you how great it was on the Twitch show, but I am DeaconKC on Twitch, so I don't know if you got my congrats or not. But what a beautiful job you did on this sculpt.

Your paint job is amazing but I'm wondering why you chose purple for the hair when the rest of the color scheme was blue/gold?  Why not mint green, or the cool yellow, or even the green gold?  The purple just feels wrong to me.  Completely out of left field and not connected to the rest of the figure.

Corporea, this is an amazing, amazing paint job. 

 

This might already have been my favorite sculpt so far in Bones V, and your paint job is just... she's so pretty. 

 

And thank you for the WIP - it's always cool to see a master-grade painter at work!

purple and yellow are complementaries, so I wanted the color contrast.  It's one of my favorite complementary combos.  Do cloud giants have green hair?  I should have done more research in the monster manual!  :lol: I felt like if I go yellow, I risk blonde, and green feels too oceany to me.  For some reason the purple just felt colder and frostier. More cloudy!

 

Thanks guys!!!

I wasn't sure if I should post this in Show off or WIP, but I figured here and if you would please forgive the in progress parts in the subsequent post.

 

I think you can post wherever the broccoli you want!  :rolleyes:

 

I loved this sculpt when I saw it in August and was very excited to see a bigger, new version of her coming.  I love the existing Yephima too, but she’s a bit more sexy/playful.  This one looks strong and commanding - she’s a badass!  Your interpretation of her is just perfect - this is the reference for this figure, obviously.

 

Thank you so much for sharing this.  It’s always nice and helpful to look at amazing reference/professional quality pieces.  Getting to see some of your process and thinking as you were designing and executing it is so much more interesting and valuable.  It’s very generous of you to take the time to do this, and it’s greatly appreciated.

 

Do you have a photo of the top of the column after blending?  I’d be interested to see how it ended up.

 

Also, do you figure out the highlighting on the armor as you paint, or plan it out beforehand?

 

I want to try NMM, but not sure how to start.  I’ve seen people block out values beforehand on the figure, and that seems like good way to figure it out.  I thought about taking a photo and marking it up in a layer in a photo editing app or something like that.
