Queen: Mini painting club bust by Cyradis

Recommended Posts

Excellent work, she turned out lovely - nice balance of warm and cool tones.

 

The Kimera paints are pretty interesting; very vibrant and saturated colors, but in some instances challenging to blend.

 

I am guessing you used the warm yellow as opposed to the cool yellow?

Thank you!

 

I used mostly the warm yellow, but actually both were used! I base coated with Reaper's Buckskin Pale first. It is much more opaque than a vivid yellow, although it isn't that vivid. It is a soft yellow. Needed that to even out the surface, because vivid yellows are pretty transparent. Then I overlaid that with the Warm Yellow. I mixed Warm Yellow with Red Ochre (varying amounts) for the shadows. The shadows on that yellow band are pretty shallow, so I didn't need to pull it into black there. The highlights had some Warm Yellow + Cool + white going on, and then White with a Cool Yellow Glaze. You are correct though, the dominant one is by far the Warm Yellow.

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      I hope this is ok as it is outside the fantasy/sci-fi realm but this is what I've been working on while taking a break from the Bones 4 core set. This is a 1/10 bust from Young Miniatures sculpted by Young B. Song, Templar Knight YH1837.
