Beware Lost Sailors, An Angel Comes For You....

The moment I saw this miniature I fell in love with it and knew I needed to work on something special for her. However due to my competely lack of skill sculpting I knew I could not pull off waves for her base...

Then it hit me, to paint her over a glassy smooth water, without her casting as much as a ripple. The reflections of the moon and sky through her on the water showing her ghostly nature and set the scene of a crisp cold night at sea, with a dark angel in search of lost sailors. The entire base is freehand painting except for the 2 rocks of course.

Anyway, I hope you like her, Comments and critisisms are of course welcomed!

Thank you,

I think this is one of the best minis I've ever seen It's simply perfect and awesome and I can't imagine enough words to say how cool the freehand on the base is ^^

Personally, I like the green. It's looks like a drowned woman. Much better fit for the nautical theme than an ethereal blue-white.

Fantastic.. But how does it look from other angles? Obviously, painted reflections like these can only look good from one angle, but on a picture it's great.

I feel redundant giving it yet another 10, but to give it less would be criminal. Heinously criminal. Like a few other commenters, the only thing I can possibly think to poo-poo in this, is the green skin, more out of preference than anything else. It's sheer brilliance. I'm yet another to add her to my favourites list.

All I could say when I saw this on the Reaper boards was "Holy Crap!" This is easily the best paint job I have ever seen. Wow.

simply amazing. A perfect paintjob, my only trouble with it (and I'm stretching to find trouble mind you) is the green skin. A ghostly pale blue would have gone better with the purple IMHO. Keep in mind however I'm trying to give critique, not mindless worship (though I do mindlessly worship your power) and thus have to add a "you could have done this part better" part. Overall 10 out of ten if i've ever seen one. Anyone who gives less is jealous.

not only did you come up with a wonderful new idea, your technique is simply stunning. I think this mini is even underrated at a 9.5 just jaw-dropping work m8 !
