This little gnome, male or female?


Recommended Posts

So here’s my question, got this little person with my last Reaper order, and I just wonder a little.  The miniature is a little bit heavier set or “thicker” than the concept art, and I’m just wondering, does everything think this is a gnome lass and not a young gnome beardless gentleman?

She’s kind of similar to the other set that has a very obvious gnomish lady:

Just wondering if everybody else has painted this little hooded gnome as a lass?

I have the figure on my painting desk right now and I did not see it as female. But then I'm not sure exactly how I would know.

 

I asked, but the figure was remarkably unwilling to answer. ::D:

Very tight lipped sometimes these minis, very little help.  I see her face kind of similar as the other female gnome but she has no curves whatsoever to her body whereas the other little lady had a bit of bosom going for her. But on the other hand the hooded figure is kind of swaddled in the cloak and armor so maybe it’s not a surprise these details aren’t evident.

The face looks more male than female to me (heavy brows more than anything else), and a bit African in facial features as well (though the hair is more European). It's a fun figure that I'm looking forward to putting up on Show Off when I finish it.

Will be looking forward to seeing him or her!

You need to paint an open mouth to get an answer...-_-

Seriously, could you not paint it any gender you (or it) chooses?

Yes of course and I’m pretty sure I’ll paint her as a gal, but I’m just wondering what the sculptor had in mind after seeing the concept art. I think had I not seen the drawing of the original concept I’d assume he was a guy.

      Enlarge! Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 44109, Enlarged Dark Dwarf Smiter I completed last night. The size of this model allowed me to add more texture on the leather. I also added light effect on the face and the shield rivets. For those of you who may wonder, Dark Dwarves (Duergar) can once a day use their spell-like ability to enlarge themselves. This Bones Black model was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

      2nd mini painted this weekend for Paint Club.  I admit this one posed some interesting challenges that I'm not super thrilled about.  Most of that is related to the lack of details to really draw out, but it also highlights my lack of ability to know how to help highlight that muddled scuplt.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      * Majority of Blink being armor made the choice for colors fairly easy.  I once again used the combo of the Gunmetal and Aluminum as the pairing.  I like it! 
      *  The purple and red seem to be an okay choice for the only real two tones in this model, but I'd like a bit more color.  Still a win.
      *  I really went back around 4 times to fix the skin.  I found that there were some mold lines I didn't quite scrape off that frustrated me, but even so the colors seem okay.  Reaper send me a SAMPLE color that's like THE COLOR of flesh that works in a pinkish hue that I love.  LOVE.
      *  The checkering I added to the helm seems to be a fun detail and helps bring out some of the helmet forward.  
      *  I used black ink to do black-lining which helped show separation between all of the plates.  Win!
      *  Eyes came out great.  I wanted to go back and add that little sparkle in the corner of the eye, but I think we all know that one-step-too-far we all can take when it's good enough and then it gets screwed up.  Holding back was the way to go.
      *  Trying a lot harder to work the hair with highlights.  Did a brown base, lined with brown liner between the strands, then highlighted with brown sand.  Works?  I think so.
       
      Misses:
      *  The dark lining I end up with around the eyes needs to be drawn back further.  I can't seem to get around that.  It was really present around my Lysette work and shows up strong in this one, too.  Wah wah.
      *  I tried using brown liner to bring out the detail in the plates.  Wasn't strong enough and too runny in its medium, so I had to swap to black ink.  
      *  Not sure I'm a fan of the shield mix of tones with Gunmetal and Aluminium.  I think I need input there from y'all.
      *  The horsehair helmet with purple and red...may have been a bit much.  Color recommendations?
      *  I liked using a pinkish color for that vial hanging on her belt, but is it too bright?
       
      Overall, this little model was not the easiest due to the carve of the model.  I do think that this was a great test to see how I could add to it, but still so much to learn on improving things like this with more free hand.
       
      Any thoughts?

      Well, Reaper have started a Challenge League on their Discord channel and my painting mojo has been in the doldrums lately, so it looks I'm going to be using it as painting inspiration for the next wee while.
       
      Here's my first entry, which is part of a collaboration with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling. Its a promotional mini from last year, Garghuk the Ogre Chieftain. All comments and criticisms are happily received.

      Some basic table-top paints here,  The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting.  It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)

       
      The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.

       
      For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.

      The Owl Bear fur is  Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray  on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint ,  it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)

      Here is Vatanis, Maggotcrown warlock, from Bones IV. The camera certainly revealed some flaws, especially with the ribbon! I most pleased with the cloak and bare chest and look of the blue as accents.
