"Chick" first due to request.

So I haven't taken any progress pics for Chick. Lots of work since last night - I could get away with highlighting the hair and doing a rough face, and touching up the shoes. I've already added lipstick

Super happy with the sweater texture - palomino gold, buckskin pale and a wash from a brown made with PG and hexed lichen (purple). Shirt LED (autocorrect to "disabled," really?) blue and ghost white, skirt is breonne (autocorrect to "bronze") blue and ultramarine shadow. Hair base is ruddy leather. Intend to go rust brown then lava orange maybe depends what I have handy.

Not ideal, but livable. Looking a little sickly though. Will have to see if eye shadow and some blush help with that? Other suggestions?

Maybe @Pingo

Can talk about a video or thread that refers to traditional skin tone mixing? I think I'm veering too far into yellow, which is why she looks a little undead.

Her skin looks greyish brown, but I think you have the highlights in the right places.  Is it possible to give her a warmer skin tone? Her eyes look good, just need a little neatening up on the bottom.

 

Edit: if you mix white with the ruddy leather you might get a nice caucasian skin color.

Thanks.

I am hoping not to have to redo all the skin. This was a failed attempt at a brown skin tone, so I'm not sure about the ruddy leather recipe. I might try a glaze of a red brown. I just feel there's some counter-intuitive solution to this that I can't think that I might with formal art training.

Try a thin glaze of the ruddy leather over a small area, like her hand.  See if you like that.

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.

      Seemingly unrelated to each other, but I swear all these minis were drying from the sealer by 11:23pm on 12/31/2020.

      Here are....Lidless Eye's Last Minis of 2020!

      A Winter Wizard from Reaper Miniatures oh wait it's Santa, isn't it?
       

       
       
      To back him up, some friendly Reindeer to back him up.

      Wait, I'm being informed they're actually Grashrak's Despoilers from Warhammer: Underworlds


       
       

       

       
       

       

       
       

       
       

       
      The last bit of their native habitat, a fallen tree (3D print from The Lost Adventures)


       
      A creepy Scarecrow Puppet familiar from Reaper Miniatures.


      Arik Axereaver, Barbarian, acquired as a bonus along with the Father Christmas.  His head seems to reflect everything in the lightbox.



      And doing what we all should from the last year, the Fleeing Halfling from Warploque Miniatures.  He must know Johann.

      Hi all - here is the courtesan townsfolk figure from Bones IV. I learned that yes, just as everyone says, orange does not cover well. 100 coats of orange later....

      So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things.  I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch.  
       
      Here she is:
       

       
      Always thought she was a cute little figure.  The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice.  But one of these days I'm sure they will pop up again.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy, happy belated Christmas and New Year!
