#01406 Sophie, Succubus
Posted 18 June 2012 - 01:45 AM
So this is my second mini painted, a 72mm Sophie. I used artist acrylics severely watered down, and I mixed all the colors from primaries, white, and black since I'm too poor (or cheap) to buy more colors. I'm working on that. The base is sculpted from Sculpey clay and baked with an aluminum structural core. And I need to practice with static grass a bit before trying it again. ><
Any C&C is geatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. :)

Your painting is really lovely; I also love the wings. You'll find, as you get into these tiny scales, that you have to work harder than in 2D to get the shadows and whatnot on things like skin (Sophie's is a little flat right now), but you've got a great start here!
Welcome to the boards. Now show us more!

Why yes, that is a Kaladrax on my shoulder. Why do you ask?

Your artistic background really looks to have been a boon here; Sophie is superb for your first mini, and you're off to a great start! Plan on doing any 28mm minis? Or do you like the larger scale?

Sanael- Yes I definitely am grappling with shading exaggerated shadows, and I'll keep working on giving future pieces more added depth.
Kuro- Actually, this is my second mini. My first was Pearl the Mermaid, and I need to take good pics of her since I built my light box. I like the scale of the 72mm, but I really like the challenge of working at the smaller scales and trying to refine details at that level. I'm currently working on Queen Ileosa, and her face is such a challenge! I'll be putting a WIP of her up soon to get some feedback once I have another go at fleshing out her facial features.
Thanks so much for the warm welcome guys! =D
