One of the first specially-purchased minis from my previous campaign, this Metal Madame was the players’ first encounter with the clockwork monsters created by the elder god intent on destroying all life on their planet.
I based in black, then picked out the interesting areas where I wanted a red “glow” to show through (matching the “red energy” the players had encountered previously). Then I drybrushed in three progressively-lighter shaded on silver. (I used a similar technique on the Tomb Maiden, although this was painted first)
This guy was an enormous pain to paint, especially since I had to prime & basecoat by hand (this was before I got an airbrush). Several hours of drybrushing. iirc I painted the wings on separately and glued them on at the end.
Got Ahriman finished.. it’s a beautiful model - but that crack in the pauldron - I couldn’t close it anyhow! Had to fix scratches and stuff as I tried to close it..
But well, there’s that and it’s okay! 🤗
I’m back, with a new laptop and the ability to do Tumblrs again!
So here’s the other members of my Guild Ball Morticians - Obulus, Cosset and Graves, as well as the team goal that I scratch-built! I’m very pleased with these fellows so far - I’m about 50/50 on wins v losses so far, which is way better than my usual odds haha!
I will be at Fanexpo Canada (Toronto) this week at A235 in the Artist Alley! I figured I would open up a few mini gouache commission slots before the convention and see if there is any interest! These slots are limited and would be available for pickup Friday Afternoon - Sunday morning (I am away on Thursday due to schedule). I will not be taking painting commissions on site if I am filled, so this is your chance!
These little babies will cost $65 (one character, and gradient/minimal bg like in the samples), and measure 4″x6″ - perfect to be framed!
If you are interested, send an email to nnekamyers(AT)gmail(DOT)com with the subject line MINI PAINTING PREORDER.
Hoping you guys make my dream come true and give me lots of princesses and mermaids to paint…
This guy is probably in my top 5 favorite paint jobs. I went in with the explicit goal of painting white clothing well, and I had to make the rest look good just to balance out the amount of effort I put into the white coat.
I’m glad I proved to myself that I can paint white, so now I never have to do it again.
