    Some more progress from the last week.

    I switched to full Rose Brown, Beige Red, 1:1 mix of Beige Red:Basic Skintone, shaded with 1:1 Black:Violet, got much better:

    The freehand muscle lines got too harsh and out of place, had to scrap them (#2).

    As I really did not understand how the pectoralis looks like, especially with arms stretched wide, I looked around on the net, and found the following images:

    For now, I left it as it is, and based all the other areas, the jacket with 1:1 mix of VMC 70947 Dark Vermillion:VMC 70814 Burnt Cadmium Red, and the hair with some Leather Brown.
    TBH I fell in love with this red, it is one of the best leather jacket colors, so I will stay with this:

    Continued with shading the jacket, base color is 1:1 mix of Dark Vermillion:Burnt Cadmium Red, shaded with 1:1 Black:Violet, highlighted with VMC 70845 Sunny Skintone.

    Hair was started with Leather Brown, shaded with Chocolate Brown, highlighted with Sunny Skintone, but I was not satisfied, it was too colorless, to black and white.

    So I switched to Dark Vermillion shade, highlighted with the same Sunny Skintone, but glazed over with VMC 70.956 Clear Orange

    Gluing back the broken down ring on the right arm was PITA, as expected, but so far I am quite satisfied with the results so far.

    There are some parts I did not like on this mini, however. There were a lot of mold lines, casting errors on his fingers, in his left ear, I expected sculpted fingernails for this size,seems that the zipper teeth have different size on each side, the hair on the back side is a mess, etc.

    I appreciate the review of the modls quirks as this was one I looked at buying a few years ago. I love the red leather jacket. Congrats on the assistant and I hope she is more patient than my four year old.

    Long time no see, I have been on vacation with the family and moved, but back to the painting.

    First I assembled the body and the legs of the Child Thief:

    Seems that the photos are not as successful since the moving, meh...
    But I need to come back and highlight the face more.

    Then painted the background, using airbrush
    I used
    - 1:1 mix of VMC 70986 Deck Tan:VMC 70986 Yellow Ochre,
    - 1:1 mix of VMC 70884 Stone Grey:VMC 70908 Carmine Red,
    - 1:1 mix of VMC 70836 London Grey:VMC 70960 Violet
    for the sky:

    Furthermore
    - 1:1 mix of VMC 70836 London Grey:VMC 70960 Violet
    - 1:1 mix of VMC 70995 German Grey:VMC 70903 Intermediate Blue
    For the buildings.

    I highlighted the windows with sky colors, the result is:

    I started painting Tinkerbell on the back side, trying to emulate Brom's artwork (Humility is one of the virtues, I know )

    As I cannot paint and especially draw, I cut out the outlines and used airbrush to sketch the parts, using VMC 70839 Ultramarine Blue

    Thanks, 10ball!

    Well, I noticed that her back is going too upwards, and her left arm is missing. I airbrushed the outlines of the left arm, and fixed the back, and painted both arms, the legs and her side:

    Then first try at her face and one of the wings:

    Thanks guys, but as I wrote, I just copying Brom's artwork here.

    Started working on the hair:

    And finished the basic paintjob:

    Some small corrections are still needed, e.g. fixing the hair and the nose, but Tinkerbell will look something like this.

    nice work on the freehand faery, this version looks a little bit less scary than the original you linked, still it is very similar, nice work
