Darcstaar vs. Bones I: Ep. 5 Deladrin

Recommended Posts

Here is the next project for “Try to paint all the things!”

 

I plan to paint her as a very light skinned elf.  I might try an Autumnal color scheme.

A little miscast of the face, on her right.  Colors were reapplication of Amber Gold, Golden Blonde, Linen White and HD Solid White.  I decided to try to fudge the miscast right face by painting it into shadow.  I mixed Amber Gold with Red Liner.  That wasn’t dark enough, so I did the same with Brown Liner.  I think she needs some color on her cheeks, lips, and eyebrows to soften her face...

Agree with warming up her face a little. Dude, the eyes are great! Your brush control is impressive. I wish I could get that kind of effect.

Thank you.

@Original_CarlYou totally can achieve it.  Brown Liner first.  Then Linen White, trying to get just the center.  If you hit the line of Brown Liner with the white, just touch up the brown from the outside in.  Then a dot of Brown Liner for the iris/pupil.  Start from the middle of the eye and paint up toward the top Brown Liner line.  It’s OK to get it on the rest of the face, as you paint the eyes first then clean up the shape with the face Base Coat.  It used to take me 3-4 tries per eye.  With practice and magnification, and a little planning toward direction of gaze, I can usually do it on the first try.

 

Here she is with straight HD Rosy Pink on the lower lip, and 2 layers of very dilute Rosy Pink on the left cheek.  I also added one layer to the tip of the nose.

 

The cheek may need a little toning down.  Will think on it.

My idea is she has a reversible cloak for each season.  It’s currently Autumn.  The outer part will be Autumn woodland Camo.  The inner part will be black.  I also deepened the shadow on the right side of the face.

I was wondering how you would deal with the slight miscast to her mouth. The shadow is a fine solution.

I love watching your creations evolve. You really do inspiring work.

To go along with the Ranger-y theme, I painted her studded leather armor.  I’m imagining all her armor is studded leather, but I can’t explain away what looks like a chainmail bikini bottom.  I hope it doesn’t look dumb when that is painted as steel.  The other studded parts for the leather is going to be brass, as are the cloak hardware, knee pads, etc.  This is two coats of thin Tanned Leather.

Russet Brown on the sleeves and legs.  I love that color!  It looks good and comes off the brush well.

It occurred to me that the straight thing in the folds of her cloak was meant to be a scabbard.  So that’s what it is now.  Russet Brown.
