Another difference time makes

Time and practice can make a huge difference in your painting. Today, I looked back at a model I painted about a year ago that I just painted another of. They are Reaper Finari. Although I painted another Finari in between them, it was a commission with a specific time budget and paint quality, and so it really can’t be compared. The yellow and blue Finari was painted in February 2014, and the teal and purple Finari I just finished in June 2015.

Reaper Finari 14093

This model was such a blast to paint. I’m sure I will end up painting her again down the road, but for now this is definitely my favorite version of her.

Working on the sword…

Here are more quick WIP shots of my Reaper Finari. I’m just trying out the red hair, not sure if it’s going to stay or not. I’ve done more work on her teal armor, specifically making parts of the back shinier and adding reflected light. I’ve hit a point where for most of this model working on it further just feels like fiddling.

Here are more WIP pictures of Finari! I’ve not been able to work on her so much in the last week or so because of the Kitsune, but now that that is done I think Finari will be the next finished. I worked on making her teal armor appear shinier, and I’ve worked on the NMM gold as well. I’m really enjoying the gold now that I’ve moved away from using a series of brown-ish colors. My colors on this NMM gold are a deep purple (VGA Hexed Lichen), a slightly earthy red (VMC Cavalry Brown), a greenish yellow ochre (VMC Khaki Grey), a pale yellow (VMC Golden Yellow), and my usual almost-white “white” (VMC Ivory).

I feel like the gold is way more interesting. Also, in the case of this overall scheme, it plays off the purple cloak and teal armor very nicely.

I’m still figuring out what I want to do with that cross on the back of her cloak, so it is nowhere near finished.

Bushido Kitsune finished!

I finally finished the Bushido Kitsune! This was a really fun miniature, and I learned that I really enjoy painting animals. Maybe I will tackle some of Dark Sword’s anthropomorphic line soon.

Ultraforge Vrock

I’m super busy with multiple projects right now, but I thought I ought to put up some photos of the Ultraforge Vrock as I hadn’t done finished photos yet somehow!

This model is still WIP, although it’s coming along! I sculpted the additional rocks on the base with milliput, as putting him on a 50mm playable base left little room for anything else. Painting the feathers took hours! At this point I’ve already spent as many hours on this model as I planned to in total, and I still have a few more to go!
