Back after a long-ish hiatus. I had to take a break from painting earlier this year because of some eye issues. No that I can see right again, I wanted to take a simple-ish mini to completion. I used the RCL limited palette theme for July.
While the paint job on these maggots can be better, it's gratifying to be back to doing something I enjoy immensely.
Thunderbolt Mountain/Ral Partha Legacy Flying Pink Unicorn with Ballerina Fairy, sculpted by Tom MeierBy 72moonglum
So hello all you Reaperphonics!
So finished this one recently. I'd done the other Flying Pink Unicorn, and wanted a slightly different version of pink, so here's what I came up with. This one, like the other fairy ballerinas, was sculpted by Tom Meier inspired by a design from his daughter with his company Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and now sold by Ral Partha Legacy. Lots of different pictures because it's mini with basically lots angles, not just front and back, hope not too many photos:
They are the last of my ballerina fairies that I had from Ral Partha Legacy, going to have to now move on to something different I guess, maybe some Reaper Bones.....
Every aspect of this project was decided by rolling on random tables, resulting in:
This mini (Fairy Huntress by Dark Sword Minis) The spider webs (because I had to somehow turn her into the victim of the scene) A very limited palette (Deep Red, Palomino Gold, Dark Highlights, Pure Black, Pure White, all RMS) The water base Lichen, moss and blood effects (because I had to try "weathering").
More infos and WIP here. Looking forward to your c&c!
Since we have lockdown where I live I was put on short term work. This gives me a lot of free time, a good part of which I am using to improve my painting. I have no formal art education whatsoever and am trying to make up for this by watching a lot of youtube and experimenting (and posting questions here on the board...).
Recently I started a project where I challenged myself to using only a few paints for a mini. During my youtube research I found a lot of videos about mixing all your colours by using only primary colours. I found this concept really fascinating and want to try it out with my mini painting.
The colours used for this were blue (rather dark, ultramarineish), red, yellow, brown (something like a burnt umbra) and a white. The video recommended using single pigment paints. Since the artist was using oil paints for his demo, I can't just go out and buy those specific paints, so I need their equivalents in miniature paints, preferably Reaper.
Which paints would be best for this kind of paint mixing? For white, Pure White is probably a no brainer. For the rest, I lack experience.
I would be thrilled for some recommendations from anyone who has tried such a technique already - or knows a bit about the properties of the reaper paints.
Thanks for your help!
