Bold Miniatures: Vesha. Self-inspired.


Recommended Posts

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.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      So I gotta say... the cast quality was so so on this. So I decided to hide that with "kinda dead". Very loosely inspired by Salem from RWBY. I put the figure down about 25% done for over a year then slammed it out in February as a "get it done" and to practice white hair before going to the next Vancouver paint club figure. Sucks that this one somehow also felt a bit like a self portrait by the time I was done.

      This is a miniature I've printed and painted before, Duncan Louca's Fleshwalker.
       
      Last time, I printed it at 50% of its designed size; this time I've done it full-size — it's very big — and I've gone for a blueish colour scheme rather than the browns I used last time. I've mounted it on three big 50mm steel washers, not because it needed to be based for stability, but rather to give it a bit of weight and to shift its centre of gravity right down.
       
      The blue skin is only modestly successful, and all the boils and sores have ended up looking more like internal molten magma or something rather than pus-filled lesions. Never mind.
       
      As always, Sergeant Measureby is present for scale, with his Spear of 5mm Increments.

      This is the "Soul Stealer" bust from Artisan Guild's welcome pack on patreon. I printed it on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
      This might be the first bust I have ever painted, not counting an Orc bust from the very early days of Forge World that I started but never finished and sold off at some point in the distant past (oh, the Folly of Youth).


      So why this newfound fascination for busts? I hear you ask.

      Well, it's the RCL again. "Bust" is a quarterly category, and since Reaper only make a very few busts, none of which are readily available at the moment (there will be a few released after Bones 5 fulfills later this year), the fine folks at Reaper have decreed that bust entries are not limited to Reaper product.

      Did I mention that the RCL has been a fun way to choose what to paint? It really helps to keep things fresh and to motivate to finish the pieces I start. And now also to paint other stuff than I usually would.

      I do not buy busts as they are generally outside my scope of interest. However, I do own one or two busts as .stl-files that have been parts of patreon bundles.
      And with such an extensive library of files at hand, once I decide to do one, it does not take long to make supports and print one off.

      But what to choose? Tentacle-face or a human face?


      Do you want to know more?

      After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again.  Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. 
       
      Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash.  It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed.  Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green.  Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.
