"Love Everlasting" The Lovers from Dark Sword

Recommended Posts

Weird. I see this wonderful piece of art, and I immediately get melancholic feelings. I don't even know why.

 

Reminds me of this song from the Nier:Automata game:

But what I am interested in: Did you already give it to your parents? And if yes - what did they say?

I visited them at the end of October and gave it to them then. Perfect timing as their 45th anniversary was this year. They were very surprised and loved it.

Gorgeous work. The painting is amazing and the base is scaled perfectly to show off the piece.


Thank you. I am glad I went with the smaller base as the first one I had would have been too much. This was definitely a case of less is more.

Nice work! The blending on the dress is impressive. Did you place at all at ReaperCon?


Thanks! ReaperCon uses the open system so you medal based on your skill level with placings for manufacturer awards. This was my entry that was judged for the category and I was awarded a silver medal.

Exquisite drapery, blending, and shading--and the colors on the base are the perfect complement. Beautiful. Inspirational. Aspirational!

Thanks! It has always been one of my favorites and I might get another to try a different take on it.

I need to pick one up. I have always admired the sculpt and it makes me want one every time I see one so nicely painted!

      One of the newer minis from Dark Sword Miniatures. I saw this at the beginning of December and immediately thought of my best friend. As it took me until just this past week to finally find time to paint her, and my BFF lives in London, it's a much belated Christmas present. But worth the wait, I think.
       

       
      She has a little friend hiding in the flora too.

      I painted these three dark elves last week.  Always a popular subject.  Priestess of Lolth, Priest of Vhaerun, and a Paladin of Moradin.

      In an unusual turn of events, I ended up painting the same miniature three times this week.  First one was for a customer who wanted the bard from Dark Sword Miniatures but without the pipe in his hand.  So it was replaced with a glowing musical note.  Red armour, blue clothes, yellow cloak.   While I was working on it, a different customer wanted the same bard but just a quick paint job for a sidekick NPC in his D&D game.  Of course, no pipe for the second bard either.  Brown armour, green cloak.  I think I spent more time on the base than painting him.  While I was working on the second one, the first customer decided he didn't like the colour scheme and could I change a couple of things.    No problem, I'm happy to do it.  But there is OSL and all kinds of other stuff, so it was actually much easier just to start again from scratch.  So I painted him a third time.  Red cloak, grey clothes.

      This is the end result of me trying ~2.5 sources of light for OSL. Red from magic runes below, teal from a flame in hand, and some moonlight from above.
      The character is our magic user (archivist/wizard/mystic theurge for Wee Jas), who got pretty beat up last session - but he got better. Hence title "revived". His familiar is an Aussie magpie, which was so vexing to paint, because instead of just a black bird, she has some spots. Gah!
      The character is pale, with black hair, and wears black and gray.... so I had a bit of an adventure trying to work around that too.
      The figure is a converted version of Dark Sword's Stephanie Law "Male Mage". I took it off the base and put it on a new one (I think MicroArtStudio?). I also filed off the tiny beard to make it just a little more different. I then took off the staff, and took the Bird on a Rock from that kickstarter and put it on the hand. That thing is on there with superglue, greenstuff, and prayers.
      The red OSL specifically wouldn't have been possible with my Reaper reds; that's Kimera paints. I tried Reaper Blood Red and it just wouldn't go bright enough. On the palette, it looks the same as Kimera's "The Red", but The Red is just sooooo much more vibrant. I thinned the heck out of it and started glazing it in.
       
      Weakest point I think is the bird, but eh, that's okay.
       
      Photos aren't perfect, but still better than what I used to get. Going to fiddle around with stuff again soon.
