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.

Commission scheduling

So I’ve developed a mean case of tendonitis in my right wrist/thumb, and so now I have to wear a splint. This is slowing painting down enormously, so unfortunately┬áthis will affect my turnaround on commissions for a while. Due to the several weeks I’ll be spending wearing this splint, already scheduled commissions, and other scheduled events in August, the next available time I have in my schedule for commissions is the 2nd week of September.

WIP Khador Juggernaut

As usual I’m working on several projects at a time. I’m adding a Khador Juggernaut to my WIP pile. Here’s a shot after putting on some modulating rust colors. Some of this will show through when I do some chipping later on.

WIP Reaper Finari

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).

gold colors

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.

WIP Bushido Kitsune

Here are more WIP shots of the Bushido Kitsune. For some reason my paint is super shiny right now, although I’ve done nothing different than normal except use my new wet palette. Hmm… So far I’ve mostly been focusing on her dress. Next I will paint her skin/fur and face. I may also add more shadows to the dress as it’s lost a bit of the purple. The shadows are VGA Hexed Lichen, which is becoming my go-to shadow color for a lot of things. The mid tone is VMC Dark Prusia Blue, and the highlight is VMC Sky Blue. A little bit of VMC Transparent Blue is involved, but only to help transitions between mid and shadow. Transitions between highlight and midtone were done by painting a solid stripe of the highlight in the shape and approximate size I wanted, and then glazing the transition with thin Dark Prusia Blue.

WIP Bushido Kitsune

I’m working on several projects at once (as usual), and right now I’m beginning another commission. This one is a Bushido Kitsune. This miniature is strangely hard to find right now, but it’s a really awesome sculpt and the casting quality was really nice. I’m excited to paint it.

Here’s another WIP shot of Finari. I will probably work on the cloak some more, but I’m really loving these colors!
