Bold Miniatures: Vesha. Self-inspired.

Your Mini-You is great -- I especially like the shimmering teal hair (closely followed by the textured denim and leather and furs), and I'm giving a conspiratorial nod about the potential for freehand to distract and bamboozle.  Thanks for sharing!

Glad you didn't try to include a mid-spill drink in your selfie.

Has Vancouver Mini Painting Club continued to meet virtually?  Is there a gallery of other members' work from Season 3, or theirs/yours from 1 & 2?

We have a Discord channel that we're on regularly, although we haven't had official meetings online. Here and there perhaps a few of us go on the voice/video chat to paint together. The Facebook page has a group photo of our Season 1 project, which we showed together in person right before Plague. That one was Queen by Life Miniatures - I think I posted pictures of mine on these forums. One of the guys has a really good photography setup, so those pics turned out well. We decided the next figure would be an ugly-ish male figure next, so we did a goblin by Big Child Creatives for Season 2. I got an *awful* cast of it, but made it work. Should post some pics soon. Wasn't my favorite but it didn't turn out badly.

 

Then we did this one, because we saw the Bold Minis Kickstarter, and asked for their blessing to get the STL files as a group purchase for use within club. They said that was totally cool. Timing was right going into the next project. Each of us chipped in a few dollars, then one of the local painters has a high end 3D printer and printed them for low cost. We kinda just converged on doing "beer girl" although a lot of us got more of the set printed than just her. She's just so cheerful!

 

One of the guys in the club tends to do the group orders - we pay him back, then he coordinates no-contact minis/paints drop-offs. Drive up, put loot on hood of truck, we come out and snag it. Probably looks like dealing drugs, but it is only hobby-crack!

 

Lemme dig up the Queen photos that the club leader took....

Will go put up some of the goblin pictures soon from Season 2, but he's not nearly as great since I got a bit fed up with the bugger lol. Practiced OSL and non-human skin tones at least.

 

Our Season 4 project is full figure Karol Rudyk Ametriel, the fallen angel. Either the 32mm or 75mm scale one. Not sure which I'll do yet. If 32mm I'll try a small diorama, otherwise just 75mm as stand-alone.

The nail polish, necklace and the... cufflinks or buttons or whatever they are matching is a nice little detail. Also good work on the denim texture.

 

Thanks!!

 

The green is a hint to being emerald, like the pattern on the patch. My first published paper is on emerald crystallography, so those were hinting at it :)

The denim was pretty fun to texture, just tedious. Certainly got the tightness of the weave better on the body than the arms! Got slightly sloppy on the arms since they were harder to position compared to my brush.

      I received this bust for Valentine's Day of this year. I have been so busy I have not had a chance to sit down and start it. I've decided that now that I'm done with my commission I'm going to take a break and work on something for me that should, hopefully, be relaxing. I was going to save this until I "get better." If anything this hobby has taught me one of the big things is to just go for it so that's what I'm doing.
       
      The bust is Dziewanna from Ignis Art. She is gorgeous. The quality of the resin is top notch and looks like it doesn't need much if any clean up. I /want/ to figure out how to attach a bow string but I'm not sure how I'll do that off hand. I also have a plinth for her that I'm not totally sure how to go about attaching her to.

      Hello folks! I hope you're doing well.
      My latest painted mini : a golem of woes by Rocket Pig Games.
       






       
      I loved this mini as soon as I first saw it. I just HAD to paint it. It's a fun concept and the tormented faces were an absolute delight to paint. 🙂

      I got this guy as part of a batch of misprints from one of the 3D vendors at Reapercon last year. They were going to throw them away, but we got to talking, and once they found out I do conversions,  they offered them to me as spare parts.
       
      His weapon was broken off and missing, so I gave him a replacement from the weapon sprues that Reaper made a few Kickstarters ago.
       
      The base is do 3D printed; I bought a bunch at Reapercon. 
       
      Let me know what you think, please.
