Better late than never.

Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

The first Horror is pretty simple.  Though I do find it odd that he's wearing an extra pumpkin atop his head.  He did have the best design for the snow accumulation on his back though.

The witchy horror gave me some trouble in finding a suitable color for her hat.  But otherwise fairly simple.

And finally the fancy horror.  A bit of flashing was hanging off of his hat brim that just seemed perfect as an icicle.

 

I noticed while working on them how they could easily represent pumpkin versions of Lock, Shock, and Barrel from the Nightmare Before Christmas.  If I were to do them again I might lean into that.

 

These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.

 

What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

Love it and it is great that you had the foresight to get these done 8 months early.  Well done. 

 

They were done in November and sent in December.  I just didn't get around to editing photos for awhile.  Thought about waiting until it was seasonal again but didn't feel like waiting! XD

They are wonderful, thank you. I really love the "frost on the pumpkin" vibe they have going on.  They have a place of honor in my display cabinet, and I am looking forward to putting them on the table in some future weird Halloween game. 

 

Reaper has some leprechauns that are fun. I don't see them painted too often.

I'm glad you liked them!  If you ever find a gaming use for them I'd love to hear about it!

I'll have to check out those leprechauns!

That was what set them apart for me...the frost that is. It is a WONDERFUL imaginative touch to a trio of SPLENDIDLY painted Horrors. VERY WELL DONE!

      There is something strange going on in the village lately.
      People hear footsteps like those of a child, things tends to be in a different place then where they left them.
      Children have nightmares and seem to be afraid of their toys even.
       
      And it's getting worse, it started with a few missing pets, but now Old Lady Harrington is missing, nowhere to be found.
      Could it have something to do with that new girl living at the edge of the village?
      Her name is Lilith, and she is so friendly, she gave every child in the village one of her handcrafted dolls for free.
      But still, there's something strange about it all.
       
      Constable Burton decided to have a look at her place.
      So one night he walked to the edge of the village, he saw lights shining through Lilith's windows.
      He could be wrong of course, such a nice girl, but he had a hunch and he really wanted to know.
      So he opened the door.
       
      The moment he did he knew he shouldn't have...
       
      Lilith and the Creepy Dolls are 3d printed on my Elegoo Mars. Design from Dragon Trapper's Lodge.
      Bookcases are from Minimonster Studios and Reaper Bones.
      Table and benches fom Reaper Bones.
      Floor was made with a GreenstuffWorld Rollerpin.
      Wall is a plasticcard base.
       
      Hope you like it

      Worked this one for a good, long while.  I am really happy with the cape and takign the time to layer it carefully.  I tried to use the method of using dark colors on the exterior areas and use brighter colors where to draw the eye.  I also am super happy with the edge highlighting and small details in this one.  It took me a while to do the layers, but the outcome was well worth it.
       
      I'm leaving the process below in photos on progress.  
       
      Let me know if you have any feedback or areas I could improve.
