Finished Seoni today. Definitely not my best work ever, but will be fine for her purpose.

Seoni: Bits

I shaded and highlighted Seoni's blue trim, and started on the leather pieces and the staff. Another session, maybe two, and that should be it for her.

Seoni: Dress

First news: the base for Shannon and Dena was a fail. Couldn't get the edge of the rock layer to stay down. So, I'll have to get a new platform, and then try again. I think I'll either paint the stone directly on the platform or else use plasticard instead of green stuff, which won't curl and shouldn't have the glue problem as I won't have to be as concerned about getting glue all along the back.

I got in more time with Seoni today. Worked on her dress and other bits of clothing.

Didn't do a wonderful job shading that red, but I do like the colors.

Seoni: Skin, Hair

I continues working on Seoni today, finishing off her skin, face, and hair.The braid isn't very good at all, but the rest is OK for its purpose. She's coming along nicely. I'm eager to see how she looks with the red dress.

And this is the base for Shannon and Dena. I've since finished painting it and have glued it to the platform. It's under some books right now while the glue cures, trying to deal with the curl. This may end up being a failed experiment.

Seoni: Starting

I started on the base for Shannon and Dena's diorama by making the flooring from Green Stuff. It's curing, so I'll have pictures of that next time.

I've decided to work on something fast and simple while doing the steps to finish off the diorama, so this is Seoni. She's in Bones, and I'll be painting her to table top gaming quality as she's for the Pathfinder board game.

I've base coated and put a first level of shading on her skin.

Shannon: Done

So here's Shannon on her throne, with the gems finished and the back attached.

Next, I'll move on to building the base and starting to put everything together. That's going to be a multi day process because I need to make a floor out of Green Stuff, then give it a day to cure before I can paint it, then after it's painted glue it down and give it another day to set before putting the figures on. So, it'll take me through the end of the weekend easy to finish the piece, but a lot of that will be waiting.

Shannon: Even More Throne

Finished the gold inlay and put down the base color for the gems.

I need to finish the gems and maybe clean up some of the edges between the gold inlay, and that should do it. Then it's just putting the two pieces for Shannon together, and then building the diorama.
