New Project: Shannon

So, this is the other figure for my diorama for ReaperCon. This is Shannon Stormhand. I've been working on prepping her, which is why I haven't posted - prep doesn't photograph well. Now, obviously, I've started painting her. This is just a base coat of her skin tone, which is RMS Tanned Highlight.

The back looks a bit funny because there's another piece to the figure - the back of her throne, which I'm painting separately.

I think I'm going to need to start on the base for the diorama as well. First will be sizing it, which I'll work on next time, hopefully.

Dena: Done!

Or close to it. I have a bit of touch-up to do in a couple spots, but I think that's it.

Demo Reds Done

Put some highlights on my demo red guy today. Definitely not my best red ever, but not really meant to be. I used a couple different colors to highlight with.

Demo Reds

I wasn't up for working on pieces I wanted to do a real good job on tonight, so I went back to my sample reds piece for my ReaperCon difficult colors class. I've shaded different parts with different colors: blue-ish purple, brown, and darker red. The different...doesn't show that much.

Later I'll highlight him a couple different ways.

Dena: Steel, Bits

Put a bit of brighter highlight into Dena's hair, smoothed a bit of the leather, and shaded the steel.

I'm not real happy with the NMM, but it never looks right until it gets highlights.

Dena: Leather, Steel

So I did the shading and highlights on Dena's leathers. Some of the highlights could be a bit smoother; I'll probably go back to that and clean it up a bit. Also put the base coat on the steel parts.

Definitely need to put one more level of highlight on that hair.

Dena: Clothes, Leather

Highlighted Dena's top and arm wraps and base coated her boots, gloves, and straps. Going to have to make sure the glove and boot still look distinct. I might also put a brighter highlight in her hair.

She's coming along. It'll take a few more sessions, but not a ton. It's kind of nice to have a small, simple figure to work on. Oh, that spot on her neck is just dust. It's gone now.
