This miniature had some DRAMA associated with it.
I painted her for quite a while, and then she went into a kind of miniature limbo in which I just couldn't stand any color on the sculpt. Finally I ended up dunking her in the Simple Green and leaving her there for a week. The paint came off, but strangely the bones sculpt was dyed a strange orange color and its texture changed. It got really, really soft... almost floppy.
...but eventually I got the fig to take a brown basecoat, and the rest of the painting process went off without much of a hitch, except the OSL. The figure was so weirdly soft that drybrushing made it wobble. So her OSL is a lot lighter than I would have hoped.
Anyway, here she is :-)
Hi guys. Here is my painted Bones Succubus. Parts of her are a hot mess but I am so happy with her!! I pushed through sone issues I was having and there are so many spots I learned on her. For starters she has the first makeup I ever put on a mini. She has eyeshadow, blush, lipstick complete with little white light dot on her lower lip for fun and a beauty mark! I started with slightly less pronounced makeup but then she's a succubus, she would have exaggerated makeup I think. The unfortunate thing about her is her right cheek has quite an indent and then a mold line a little past that. I disguised the mold line by giving her a "lady sideburn" to match the one sculpted on the other side but there's nothing I can do about the indent. Then her wings, for the first time I was able to get more of a variation in the colouring which I tried with my bat demon and ended up covering because I didn't like it. Her dress could have used a bit more but I was done and I'm still working on the layering/highlighting in general. One thing that still bothers me is the rough look of my paint jobs when I'm done. I paint with a wet palette so thinning isn't an issue I don't think and don't put coats on top of drying paints so that's not causing it. Hope everyone likes her as much as I do. I even have a second copy of her to do later in my painting journey.
