Bones 5 Core Set - Kid Hero (1070)


Recommended Posts

I’m starting my first of the kid heroes from the Bones 5 core set.  I really like the character design with the sharp looking long coat, cool hair and bone sword.

I want to do something different with the skin on this one.  I want to paint them as a moon elf, with cool undertones and warmer highlights.

 

im going to try basecoating with a blue and highlight up to pinkish highlight.  Not sure if this is going to work.

 

Starting with a basecoat of ritterlich:dark elf at about 1:1.

This is along the lines of what I’m going for with the skin.  Putting this here for reference.

Started blocking in the skin.  Not sure …

Worked on the skin some more, and basecoated the coat and hair(9462 Succubus Kiss and 9066 Blue Liner).  I need to see how all the colors will work together.  I think it’s starting to come together.

Working on the wet palette for this one.

I wanted to warm up the skin tone a bit, so I added some 9283 Old West Rose to the mid tones and remixed the skin colors.  Also moved to the well palette to control consistency better.  Blending these colors was tricky - I can control consistency and keep my colors consistent better in the wells.

Redid a lot of the skin.  It’s looking better now I think.  I feel like they’re looking like a moon elf.

Did some digital editing in Adobe Fresco on my iPhone to figure out how to handle the eyes.  I think side eye is the way.

 

This turned out pretty well - now whether I can paint it like this is another matter!

Great eyes!


They’re just photoshopped for now!  I wanted to see how they would look.

 

I hope I can paint them somewhat close to that - we’ll see!

 

I did a green version too:

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      Hi, I want to start this to get me motivated to get some accountability and hopefully guilt myself into working. So here is the very first of hopefully many steps.
       
      The first step is to prime the miniature, I've done that, the 2nd step? To photograph the miniature to capture the volumes of real light that shows where I want my light source. For this I want two light sources. So really that means I just used my computer screen and my ceiling light, adjust the miniature to taste and get the angle I want to set the light.
       
      The screen light is whiter and will be the light from outside the window, the yellower ceiling light will be my tavern fire light and will be the primary light source.
       
      The skin will be fairly shiny so this is pretty much a mandatory process to get those realistic sheens....because I'm literally stealing form reality it helps a lot. If I were a better painter I could fake the light sources with enough knowledge. Thankfully  I have some serious shadows on the model, and my mid tones will have a lot of room for blending.
       
      The problem now? Picking my colors.
       
      What do I know? I know the floor is wood colored and the axe/haft materials
       
      I know that I'm going to want off white and pinks for eye whites and gums teeth etc.
       
      The gold of the primer is actually a really beautiful color for a fantasy creature, so I might see if I can't keep that.
       
      So Gold, pink, whites/off whites, and browns, I don't know if I want a two toned or patterned beholder. I think this is gonna be a challenge whatever I do. I think I want to go for a fleshy color

      Just in time for the season!
      I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis.  I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it.
      This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely.  Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things.  But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.

      Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
       
      I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.
       
      My current projects in various stages on my desk. 

       
      And just the pinup after some prep work 

       
      A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out. 
       

       
      I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
       
      And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme. 

       
      Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
       
      Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
       
      Happy painting everyone.
