Darcstaar vs. Bones 1, Episode 6: Devona

Recommended Posts

Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?


Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

Nut Brown as a skin shadow color.



Linen White sclera, Nut Brown Pupil/Iris.


Her eyes are too small to try colored iris, glint, etc.

1:1 Ruddy Flesh:Driftwood Brown.


Kind of yellow, but this non-Caucasian attempt is definitely outside my wheelhouse.  Gonna keep it.


Built up raised areas more.  1:2 Ruddy Flesh:Driftwood Brown.

Mixed in some Linen White, and thinned the mix down a lot.


Another measure of Linen White.  This mix is in very small spaces on the head, breasts, collarbones, and shoulders.

Glints of Solid White.


Calling hair done...for now.  Likely will need touch up after the hair net.  Gonna be on hiatus for about 10 days.  Be safe everyone.

Lovely skin colour!! Going to try out the colours you've used for some skin at some point in the future, I enjoy having variations of skin colour in armies and warbands. Looking forward to more progress!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.

      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      Printed this out a while ago and made a base for her with the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Roller and a twig.
      The primer came out a bit chalky will try to remedy that. But for now I've basecoated her boots.
      Leather can be a bit rough so it's alright.

      This is my filthy first.
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.

      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
