Painting a Stonehaven gnome...

Recommended Posts

So the ex is going to be joining a new campaign, and she asked me to paint her figure, the Stonehaven female gnome rogue....

I really like Stonehaven minis, I just hate their prices (enough that I'll probably never buy anther one again, unless it's through a Kickstarter). Any ideas on color for the clothes?

So the next steps...

To the base SC75 Arabic Shade, added a 50% mix of Arabic Shade and Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh, then a 50% mix of Basic Flesh and Golden Skin...

The pants and boots got a couple coats of SC75 Abyssal Blue...

The pants will be brought up to a lighter than the boots... (hopefully anyway...)

Still early days, and going to need washes to blend things together, but blending is still beyond me now....

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

Are you using a wet palette? This might help you with paint consistency. It seems the paint application is a tad thick and looks chalky. Could be the surface of the miniature,  too,  however. 

 

I also recommend using a glaze medium. It allows you to apply thin translucent coats without loosing adhesion or consistency. 

 

I think if you work on paint consistency blending will come easier to you.

Yes, I am using a wet palette, It's been about 2 years since I have painted, and am still trying to relearn the skills I had....

Not happy with the left side of her face, but will see if I can fix it, or if she needs a simple green spa day....

Darn thing is so tiny, I had to get out a Ro&Co 3/0 brush...

 

I have also come to terms with the left side of the face, as the description of the mini says she's scarred....

 

Thanks for looking!
