Got another bunny done for the weekend.  Feeling pretty good on getting some animals done.

BATTLE REPORT!

 

Wins:

*  Using another photo for inspiration, I was interested in that this bunny photo had a slight 'blueish' tone to the color in the grey.  I was interested in trying to match it.  Used Denim Blue, Grey, and black to get it.  Came out pretty good!

*  The white was also one that I needed to be able to highlight up and I didn't want to use another grey. I ended up going with the Ghost White, which had a light blue to it, and I thought went with the grey color I mixed, too.  

*  The colors blended well and I was able to use the same technique I used on the other butterscotch bunny of doing a feathering of lighter color to bring the hair detail forward.  

*  Used a nuln oil diluted for the recesses and around the tail.  Worked good enough.  Wouldn't have minded a little more contrast, but still cute.

 

Misses:

*  I didn't highlight up the fleshy colors on the nose.  I somewhat feel it needs more of a "pop" and think it was a miss that I didn't.

* The white is still on the weaker end and coudl have gone a little darker so I could bring the white hair forward more.  Using the zenithal highlight helped, but still wanted more.

 

These were both super fast and only a handful of colors needed, so both bunnies were solid.  Open to any feedback ya got.  

 

Now I gotta base them with something cute and fun...

      Still have to base. 
      Still feel like show needs more. 
       
      Anyone think the lines on the cape needs to be dark lined instead of white?

      Aaaaand here's #2 of 4.
       
      She was a bit of a challenge coming up with her base.  I wanted it to look like the first scene that Cloud meets Aeris where she's in church ruins. I wanted to have color, but not too much.  Feels like it works.
       

       
      Got feedback? Lay it on!

      I've been basing more of my minis and feeling like I'm actually completing them rather than just painting the model. 
       
      Here's Cloud from Final Fantasy 7. This is the first of 4.
       

       

       
      As always, i love the feedback.

      I haven't posted a piece in the showoff area in a long while.  I mostly put my work in that paint club group, but this one was special and i wanted to share. 
       
      I had this figure staring at me and didn't have a theme in my mind.  Then it hit me that she for perfectly for this conflict in Ukraine.  She's holding her sword up as if the last line of defense.  I created the small base with the fallen shield representing the broken boundaries and fallen defenders.  But atop her hill that represents her country, she calls for aid and stands strong.  May they all stand strong. 
       
      Lady Vigilance and her call to arms.

      Battle report!
       
      The challenge here was trying to make them all individual more than just their head bands.  I wanted to differ their greens a little between them. I also wanted them to look sewer-ridden and dirty, but still hold contrast.  Came out pretty nice.  
       
      Highs:
      *Donatello was easily my favorite that came out of this batch.  His purple was a great mix and stood out. 
      *Leo had a fun blue that was brighter than expected and gave me the idea to put their respective colors in more areas on them. 
      *eyes were simple and effective. 
      *use of washes and lining came out good.
      * muscles all have strong definition (no pun)
       
       
      Lows:
      *bandages look grungy as intended, but did get a little too bright in the edges. 
      *absolute fail in trying to base with green on airbrush.  I may need to resign myself to simply saying i suck with an airbrush. 
      *shell colors needed a little more, but i couldn't figure out what's going wrong. 
      *i wanted to push the greens. But needed more something to push the values.  Yellow? White?  What do you raise green with?
