Absolutely spectacular!

 

I use a drybrush of pearlescent metallic for glitter. I'd imagine actual glitter is the right scale for sequins but refuse to mess with the stuff.

  • How do you go about sequin, glitter or fake 'crystals' on miniatures?
  • What is your favourite recipe for pink?

 

 

Cheap metallic paint, it has larger particles and looks more like glitter. Well, it is glitter. 

 

I use pink straight out of the bottle. 🙂

You did a really great job on this figure! :winkthumbs:

 

Sadly, I've got nothing on your questions.

 

Glad you like her!

Never thought of using these guys as mutants, I shall steal this idea, off shopping now...

 

Thanks! I think I will convert a few more of the Avatars to Urban Mutants. I have the Avatar of Wisdom, too, and want to make him into a peddler of counterfeit and illegal goods.

Much obliged! Actual glitter is a good idea. If I could find the right diametre one could build it up as a 3D texture.

I love the bubble gum!

 

Thank you! I thought of painting a translucent effect, but decided against it. Too hard to wrap my head around it and too little time before the submission deadline.

Lately I've been using a lot of Thuvian Sun Orchid SKU: 89537, it has a pure magenta pigment so it mixes really well for blending.  Most of my other pinks are discontinued, the Blush Colors Triad 9747,    Spattered Crimson 9277 (not a pink but it makes a beautiful one with white),  Dead Rose 9653 (another dark one), and the seasonal Breast Cancer Pink.

I really like what you did with the skin. Adding in the subtle hints of color help it pop (and stay cohesive with the model's overall color pallette). The detailed bits, like the sign, cigs, and printing on the pants, are all flawless.

 

As far as glitter goes, Folk Art actually does a line of glitter-based paints. I've never tried the colored ones, but I've used the "clear" one (basically, a matte varnish that adds a glitter effect over an existing color) and I was impressed with it. They're cheap and worth experimenting with, if you're curious.

As a fan of pure pigments I will check out the Thuvian Sun Orchid, thanks for the tip!

Much obliged. That was indeed my intention with the skin: subtle texture and colour variations that take up other elements of the mini. I think the logo on the pants could be enhanced, but really hard to get it right. I have a lok if I can get Folk Art in Germany.

Wonderful scene tells a story. Amazing conversion which makes it so different - love the skin and use of pink throughout.

 

Thank you! Narrative is indeed always high on my list for such vignettes and the mutant conversion inspired by TMNT was also great fun. I imagine she just keeps a parking space free for Bebob.
