Last Breath: Reaper's Maiden Bust


Recommended Posts

I like the way your rendition expresses duality, it's a deep depiction of everything poisoning life and the desire to cling to what is good and beautiful.

The tears are a nice touch to complete the effect, great job.

More practice for painting Amitriel by Karol Rudyk! Used this one to try white hair and a tear drop. Went alright on that front!

 

.... I still kinda have that title from undergrad of "Zombie Queen". Kinda heavy crown right now. But I miss biting my friends :(

As a Last Breath, the pallor and necrosis are closing in to smother the last vestiges of life ... or it could be a First Breath, with the red rose radiating life and restoring the undead to live tissue, and she sheds tears of joy on reawakening.

In either case,  unique and superb.

      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!

      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?

      I still don't have a great photography setup, so despite efforts, this is fairly washed out (pinks in the cheeks aren't as apparent as IRL, and the hair is dulled in the photos). But until I can get figures in for a photoshoot with a friend, these will do. Sloppy selfie with the inspiration for the figure setup, before I try to dye my hair back to normal. Been teal for 9 months now, and I miss my blonde.
      I painted the figure roughly as myself, instead of with ideal artistic combinations. The patch on the back isn't really the coolest, but that's our work group's logo (and a diagram of part of my PhD research). So it is a personal design, distinctly not artistic. Also dragon instead of weasel.... heh.
      Project was part of the Season 3 for the Vancouver Mini Painting Club

      Thought some of you might find this of interest:

      At Cult of Paint we've taught painting classes to hundreds of people all over the world. We make painting tutorials for YouTube and Patreon. We have signature series airbrushes with renowned manufacturer Harder & Steenbeck AND we produce a 54mm sci-fi miniatures range and bust collection that has won multiple international painting awards. Now it's time for something really cool............ OUR FIRST FANTASY MINIATURES RANGE!!!!! 
      Dræfend bust painted by David Colwell @davecolwell725 Ever since we created our sci-fi miniatures range we've had the bug for creating awesome models for people to enjoy painting. We LOVE fantasy settings and wanted to create our own world to explore the characters so often associated with fantasy and folklore, but with our own interpretations. And so Deorgard was born, with the elves being the first race we wanted to bring to life as gorgeous miniatures and busts......
      Heargeard bust painted by Rodrigo Ciprés @rodrigo.akore Releasing the range in one go ensures we create tonnes of excitement while also enabling painters to get their favourite models from day one with no long gaps between characters coming out. And it means we can crack on with working on more miniatures for you to add to your collections!
      As we begin to explore this wild land we wanted to introduce some elves from different regions of Deorgard.  PLAY  
      In Heargeard we meet a woodsman. A guardian of the forests and the dark places where some of the most ancient parts of the land still endure.
      Heargeard concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by David Colwell ( yes that base is insane ) As the trees give way to the grasslands a hunter needs not only patience but the frightening speed and savagery to survive. Dræfend is one such elf who excels here. She has learned to hunt as part of a pack, accompanied by one of the great wolves that make their homes in the foothills nearby.
      Dræfend & Wulf concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Dræfend & Wulf painted by Ruben Martinez @rma_ruben_martinez The land rises sharply and great peaks soar towards the sky. Here we find another symbiosis of elf and beast. Whilst Sceotend may be blind she does not lack sight, her hawk's third eye providing unrivalled clarity and vision.
      concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Sceotend painted by Richard Gray @daemonrich An equally harsh environment can be found in the vast desert that covers much of the centre of Deorgard. In this ever-changing and ruthless sea of sand, those such as Læl's word is law. She is judge and executioner, swift and merciless at dealing out punishment to any transgressors. 
      Læl concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Læl painted by Andy Wardle @andywardle_artwork As primal and challenging as the landscape of Deorgard is there are still places where societies have settled and thrived. Guardians such as Indryhten stand sentinel over sacred places and those elected by their peers to rule these bastions of advancement.
