WIP Reaper 03525 Tyree Spellsinger Sorceress and orb tutorial

Here’s another WIP shot of that awesome sorceress model. I am still working on the NMM…it appears to have more contrast under my bright work lights than it actually has, apparently.

I’ve been asked a few times how I do orbs like these, so here is my process on this model:

1. base coat of VMC Prussian Blue,
2. Glaze thinned VMC Deep Sky Blue from middle to bottom of orb, not worrying overly much about the transition,
3. Glaze much thinner VMC Prussian Blue over the transition towards the top of the orb to smooth the blend,
4. Add a pinch of VMC Ivory and VMC Fluo Green to the thinned VMC Deep Sky Blue and thin further,
5. Glaze Fluo green mixture into the brightest part of the orb,
6. Glaze with super thin VMA Imperial Blue (more of a deep purple) into the very top of the orb,
7. Fix any transitions with VMC Prussian Blue or VMC Deep Sky Blue glazes,
8. Coat with Liquitex Gloss Varnish,
9. Hold under light at the proper angle to visualize glints, paint them on with VMC Ivory,
10. Re-coat with Liquitex Gloss Varnish
With all of the blending, make sure the brush is always moving towards the place you want the most pigment to be deposited.

Reaper Mocking Beast 77048

I painted this as my entry into this year’s Wyrd Iron Painter Challenge. It was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. I hope to be doing many more display models like it in the future!

Reaper Cinderella 50284

This model was an experiment in new things to me – sparkly cloth, sheer cloth, making butterflies, magic effects, painting crystal. I’m considering changing the colors of the butterflies to pink and yellow. I made them blue because I wanted them to be part of the magic dress transformation. The sheer cloth was simpler than I imagined, but I’m sure there are much more challenging situations for it. I also really enjoyed painting all those dots…even though there are a million of them…and they made my hand cramp from holding the brush funny…

WIP Reaper Cinderella 50284

More pics of the awesome Cinderella. I’m just really enjoying having a chance to paint with no specific scheme for this model…just letting it flow how it seems it should as I paint. Also, my experimentation with see-through clothing and sparkly clothing has been fun and enlightening.

I love this model so far. Here are some very WIP phone pictures of her while my hand un-cramps from all the sparkle dots…

Reaper Cleric of Calistria

Commissioned Standard Reaper Cleric of Calistria finally finished. This model was a lot of fun, but some of those details are so tiny!

Reaper Finari

This is a model I recently did for a commission at Standard Level. I do really enjoy this sculpt, and I will be painting her again in the near future.
