    Default Watching Paint Dry

    Ok I'm going to attempt to keep a WIP thread going, so to start this is the figure I'm going to start off with as of Sunday 18th October.

    Sebastian Archers's lovely sculpt of Phoenicia, Arcane Spellcaster.
    As of today she is still in her packaging so, she will literally be fresh out of the box.

    Let's she how she goes.

    So so here she is straight out the packet and much to my surprise (and delight) not a moulding line to be found.
    Now my original intent had been to place her in a Desert like environment, but in order to do that I needed to put her on a larger than normal base. Somewhere in my painting room I know I have a packet of 80mm round edge bases. Can I find where we've (*) put them can I heck.
    A rethink was called for so instead a 50mm base and ruins in a jungle/rain forest was my option.

    I have a supply of textured railway modellers plasticard, stuffs a bugger to cut but nibbling away with an old pair of GW yellow handled clippers then worked on with Wet & Dry gets the job done.
    Gravel, two grades of sand and then a mix of PVA and grass scatter (something courtesy of Massive Voodoo) and teased into position with a home made tool and the base was set aside to dry.
    (Oh and the blu-tack in the middle is where she's going to be placed.)

    Now the figure herself has a slot base which I eased off then smoothed away the residue with care, then drilled and pinned into my custom made holder, leaving about a centimetre gap so she gets an even priming protection.

    These are the skin tone paints I'll be using.

    And her she is ready primed.

    I apologise for the un-rotated pictures as they were taken on my phone an it has decided that even if I tell the editor to rotate them it's going to ignore me.

    These are the colours I chose for her hair. I wanted to make her a Maureen O'Hara Redhead.
    The Heavy Sierra is the base, washed over with the Airbrush Mahogany, the with strands picked out again in Heavy Sierra, then strands in Flat Brown, Flat Brown and Orange Brown mix, Orange Brown and finally as an almost afterthought catch lights worked up with Orange Brown and Light Skin mix.

    I'm to hold my hand up here as I was positive I'd taken pictures of just the skin tone done, but they are not in the camera roll?

    Anyhow a quick flash shot and then a closer shot about two hours (+/-) at this point.

    To have a counterpoint to the redhair I've deliberately gone for Turquoise clothing.
    VMC Turquoise and Light Turquoise, worked with Deep Sea Blue and Ivory for shadow tones and highlights respectively. The Raphael 8404 2/0 definitely the "Go To" brush or the side straps.

    Continuing the Turquoise dress theme I've used VMC Deep Sea Blue as the base and added a touch of Black glazed in for the shadow areas, then started adding small amount of Turquoise to gradually increase the highlights, switching to Light Turquoise then adding Ivory and finally a micro amount of White.
    So that was Yesterday's painting started around 12:00 noon finishing for the day at about 18:00.

    Loving the turquoise on the dress (its one of my favourite colours) it should go well with the pale skin and red hair.

    Thanks for the neck workout as well

    Yeah between my Phone, this iPad and the hyperactive 18 month old Border Collie intent on nibbling my ear and nose this morning has been fun.

    Loving the blues on the dress Mike, the dark contrast againt's the highlights really mworks.

    Thinking the same as Krule, that half skirt is killer! and I also like the "above the knee" boots.
    Super lovely doggy by the way! Will show the pic to my wife because she loves the dogs and is a fan of "the gremlins" movie
