Ral Partha Aristocratic Lady sculpted by Dennis Mize

Recommended Posts

That face is awesome given the size of these minis!

 

She gives me a "hidden African Empire" vibe.

Highly sofisticated, advanced community, discovered by accident by a bold adventurer who now has to live there forever to prevent him from sharing his discovery.

In order to make sure he won't escape he married the beautiful daughter of this Queen.

A happy man...

Excellent ebony skintones, and the white dress is also subtly and carefully shaded. What colour did you use for the shade?

 

The feather cape is also excellent, but I think would be even better with a bit of colour variation.

I think I started with leather white, then used a variety of different washes, ashen blue, twilight blue, the dark elf skin triad, and maybe a few more.  

 

For the feathers I got a little lazy at the end and just made them a single color, I thought about doing a number of colors, or decorating with a little bit of design, like those eyes that peacock feathers have, but there comes a certain moment where I want to get things finished and kind of give up!

Lovely - I think the dark skin in perfect against the white and I am amazed at the face - how do you do such small eyes with eye shadow?

Hi Iridil!

 

So I as I work on the skin I I do washes all the way down to walnut brown (used dark skin highlights as the base color).  Once I'm at the darkest wash I do walnut brown to fill in the eyes, then I paint back up with highlights up to white.

 

After that I do the eye shadow, in this case it was I think amethyst or amethyst highlight, I don't remember the name, and then on the top I did a line of darker purple. After that, then I actually do the eyes, filling in white, painting the dots with walnut brown and then dots of green over the walnut brown.

Looks like she could debate a party of PCs into dust 

She could talk you right under the table!

      Hello Reaperholics!
       
      So I've had this one finished for a few days now, but I usually photograph one sunny days and the last few days have been kind of cloudy.
      I actually really enjoy the figure, once you get paint on her, you bring out more detail.  She's from Ral Partha's Shadowrun range. Her original set came with a dryad and another large elf subtype that I'm also working on. I have the dryad done, but I wasn't happy with her eyes so I'm going to try one more time to fix the eyes before I take final pictures.
      Anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!

       
      For whatever reason, I seem to always see magic flame as green, so this mini was no exception!

      Hi guys and guyettes!
       
      So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas:
       

       
      He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go.  Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs.   If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually is known about this particular type of dinosaur and where he lived, et cetera.
       
      Back in the days of my youth, the seventies, we as kids really loved anything related to dinosaurs and cavemen.  But those were back in the days of pre-pre Jurassic Park, we had more Harryhausen as our main provider of cinematic dinosaurs, and whatever books we could get at book stores.  
       
      Speaking of seventies dinosaurs, has anybody visited the Flintstone Park in South Dakota and is it still there?

      Hello sentient painting creatures!
       
      So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
       

       
      from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
       
      With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
       

       
      I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy.  The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
       
      Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!
