Viraë

hello again, this is a miniature I painted as a step-by-step article for the Spanish miniature magazine Gamerforces - the article appears in issue 5. I actually painted the mini a few months ago, back in August 06. There are some really amazing versions of Viraë out there - the magnificent versions painted by poupee canope and cheeba are especially memorable, as well as the offical rackham one - so it was a bit tricky to try to create something original with the colours, when those other versions are so influential! But I tried to move in my own directions with the colour scheme and atmosphere as much as I could, while still showing some of these outside influences. She really was a great figure to paint though, so enjoyable...it's been a long time since I have painted a female miniature! I tried to make her a bit more lively and colourful...not so sombre as is usually my habit ;) There are some larger, better quality photos, with more angles, on my website, if you're interested - and a small write-up about the colours and techniques used also. Well, I hope you enjoy her! -sebastian
