Ral Partha Houri with Dagger sculpted by Dennis Mize

Recommended Posts

Very good work on such a tiny mini.

And I think the eyes look good, the lipstick is awesome!

I like how you pay attention to detail like the fingernails. The skin tone and the shading on her white ceremonial dress are stunning. Beautiful work.

Thanks Glitterwolf! Lots of my lipsticks are really dark, so this was more of a light bright pink to match the clothes a little bit and her nail polish.

Thanks Metalchaos! With her dress, I really wanted to give an illusion of transparency which I don’t think I achieved, but it still came out okay I think.

I actually like this miniature a lot, even though the proportions are a little weird.

 

I see what you mean about the proportions.  

 

Here is a link to what might be the original inspiration...dates all the way back to White Dwarf #13. Russ Nicholson is the Illustrator.

 

Can't show it inline; might break the forum rules.

But compare the figures: each one is female, human, similar scant outfits, armed with dagger.

Thanks TGP, I never knew that drawing existed and I'm pretty sure that you're correct.  Here's the original Citadel version of that miniature:

With that original drawing, I would have loved to have painted it so transparent, but I feel my skills just aren't there.  What I really want is to hunt down this Citadel version to also paint, it's a really neat little piece.  

 

I've got actually some Citadel figures here at home, maybe 15-20 lying around,  that I want to little by little start painting, just have to start doing them amidst my other little minis.

I think you managed to get a nice feel of transparency. The fabric seems silky.

You're just being kind, but I appreciate it in any case!

      Hello gents and gentesses!
       
      So today's miniature I'm going to have to show in edited form, as she's fully exposing all of her mammalian virtues.
       
      This one is a "female victim", from a set of the same name, sculpted by Dennis Mize for his miniature range "Children of the Night", sculpted way back in 1979.  I always forget to, but I should have taken a picture of her next to some point of reference, because she's a small miniature, 25 miniatures instead of the 28-32 of modern times.

      Here is here face:
       

       
      and here is a link to see the rest of her in Instagram:
      https://www.instagram.com/p/CAqKGQXnPgh/
       
      or if you don't have access to Instagram, another shot of her from the Lost Mini Wiki:
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/9/9d/DF-247_A.JPG
       
      which only gives a single angle of her front.
       
      In any case, a nice and simple figure to to, as it's just a girl and her skin basically.
       
      Here is the whole set, unpainted, so unedited:
       
       
      Crazy the things we were allowed to buy in the eighties as teenagers!

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      so I've been painting a goodly amount this last week or so, but it's been so cloudy I haven't been able to take proper photographs.  Today was the first day the weather showed a bit of sun, so got some photographs going.  Here is the first one I've been working on, the Drakonne by Bob Charrette.  I'm about 99.9578% that this is based on the dragonne in the first hardback Monster Manual, with a slight consonant adjustment to avoid any copyright infringements.  
       
      So looks lots of photos from lots of angles:
       

       
      Cross between a lion and a copper dragon as per the Monster Manual, so tried to do a similar color scheme.  
       
      Anyhoos, more to come soon, just got to get the photos edited and made presentable.
