Malifaux Monday #30: ... and Justice for all, part 2

 На этой неделе вместо фоточек новой миниатюры раскажу о том, как я красил Леди Джей из прошлого выпуска. Задача была сделать огненную барышню, с чем, как я скромно полагаю, удалось справитья. Давайте разберём некоторые элементы:

This week, instead of showing new minis I will tell about how I painted Lady J from last week. The task was to make a fiery lady. And I did it well in my humble opinion. So lets see how I painted some elements.

Malifaux Monday #29: ... and Justice for all part 1

This commission paintwork I did last week. The idea was that to make a vignette with Lady Justice for the glass cabinet. I tried to connect the Lady J's ginger hair with the flames on the coffin, but also save dark atmosphere of Malifaux. Also the commissioner ask to add a purple  to the Lady's clothes.

It was very quick painting - about 1 week.
I painted this TAG for WarCrow contest. And it took 1st place. It was at august.
In october I went to Hussar contest and it took 1st place again there.
I really proud.

I will sale this miniature, but I think it is impossible to send it with post. So I can to take it with me to Duke of Bavaria (Germany) and Monte San Savino (Italy) and give it from hands to hands. Or ask one of my friends to transfer it with him to another contest in Europe (and may be USA).
So you can mail me at serpentarium.painting ( /// )

It s my third bust and I m still in love with it!
At first I really like Sacrifice bust sculpted by Pedro Fernández Ramosand. It s amazing!
But I wanted to do it more special. So I m thankful to Ravenswood for idea with nimbus and belly.
I took it with some another works at Hussar 2016 and it was very funny to finish it (with headache) in hotel )))
Sacrifice tok 3d place in Bust category.

Malifaux Mondays #27: Arcane Effigy

This mini was part of my display at Ruby Sphere painting contest. I am very glad to win bronze in fantasy master painting category. Arcane effigy is very nice mini but too fragile on my view.

Dedicated to HoMM. "Green".

Some foto "from the table" during the process. Hope you find it interesting. :)  

Ruby sphere

Last weekend in Moscow there was newborn contest Ruby Sphere.
I hope report about this day will be here soon.
But today I want to show you small piece that I painted with thoughts about Ruby Sphere.

I took elf sorceress miniature from Red Box Games that I bought 3 years ago on Hussar at Warsaw.
I wanted to use very limited color scheme. So I used not so much paints - black, white, red, skin and few color more.

Mystery box

This diorama was painted for 3rd round of Iron Painter contest. Theme for round was  "Weird science" so I decided to do short story about steampunk scientist lady who is exploring mushrooms (and dangerous mushrooms too). And one day she gets mystery box with warning signs...
Also this piece took Gold in Diorama category at Hussar 2016.

Nepharya the Necro Priestess

Hi Folks! There is one more blast from the past. Nepharya was painted as box-art collaboration between me and Maria (Ringil) for Raging Heroes a year ago. She painted skin and cloth and I did everything else. Personally I not a big fan of true metallics but on this I was forced to do them. I tried to use Scalecolor true metallic sets and you know what? They're damn amazing! So I planned to do some minis in TMM in future (TMM version of chaos renegade perhaps)

Alarielle the Everqueen

It was very hard and slow painting work because miniature is very detailed and difficult to paint with/without assembly. And her size is about 54mm not 28mm.  All works - small converting and painting - took about 50 hours.
My customer asked to remove branches from legs and right arm. Also he wanted me to paint her without bug, on simple base with some mushrooms. And do her blonde hair and with pale skin.
I like her shapes (especcialy legs) and it very interesting idea about wings with leaves instead of feathers.
I took this miniature to the Hussar contest. But she took only Honorable mention.

Malifaux Mondays #22 - #24: two Devils and one pretty girl full of dynamite.

Hi Folks!
This is some of Malifaux minis painted by me during last three weeks.I redone some photos to do the right colors. More painted Malifaux stuff will be very soon,

For jellyfish sculpting I used magic sculpt and 2 or 3 trying )))

I sale this miniature.

Malifaux Mondays #16 and #17: the creepy ones

Good morning, my dear boys and girls. This time I'll reveal something creepy
. At first it will be Dr. Douglas "McBreakfast" McMourning. He is very good in plastic surgeon and his nurses can prove it) 
I painted his clothes just as in nurse step-by-step and used "Blood for the Blood god" (GW) to do the blood. For hair I used Amarantha red and Scorfulous brown (both Vallejo). 
Next one is Miss Step, a mostly mechanical girl. Her legs too wide placed for her original base so I forced to do a bigger one. I made it from pine bark, sand and Milliput. I used my standard steel NMM scheme to do the metal parts but also do the purple wash in the shadows. Bronze parts also painted in my standard scheme

I hope you enjoyed that.

P.S. Miss Step CMON link

Avicenna, Mercenary Doctor

I painted this wonderful Infinity lady for WarCrow contest. And she won Silver in Single category.

I planned to put her not on small game base but on vignette. But I had not so much time for it. Hope to do it in the nearest future.
At first I inspired with Bladerunner visual aesthetics. And wanted to paint her with not so bright and colorfull. I tried to use black white and red mostly. But my Muse said "Ha-ha! I want yellow (and purple of cause)"...

Forgeworld Chaos Renegade

  Forgeworld Chaos Renegade

Heya guys! This is a very long story. It all started when Ookami did the bases. And I had the idea to paint the FW Renrgade character. I asked Sergey little to alter one of his bases for this work. At first I planned to paint a grim bloody renegade in true metallics but when I started, I changed my decision.
So let he be a funny eyecandy! 
Many thanx for Sergey (Ookami) for the base and years of patience before my part of work started and finished. At last!
And many thanx for Marina (Ringil) for her advice on the finish stage. And for great photos too!

Iron Empire Jet Girl

Hallo Everyone!
This is an alternative version of my box-art for Raging Heroes (link). For the box-art, I was asked to make a version with true metallics instead of the usual NMM (example). And now I've done the painting scheme, which originally wanted.
I hope you will enjoy.

Malifaux nurse: step-by-step part I

 Красим Малифошную медсестру с РВД. Часть первая: подготовка и кожа.

Вообще, покраска барышень не является коньком РВД, за это в Серпентарии отвечают другие люди. Однако же, хороший покрасчик должен быть развит всесторонне.
 Значительную часть рецептов и фишек я подсмотрел у Марины (Ringil), за что ей большое человеческое спасибо.
