Painting Update: Female Human Barbarian

Dear Readers, I’m still working on some commissions for a buddy of mine. This time, it’s a female human barbarian. Frankly she looks pretty fierce.

But I guess that’s the point.

In any case, she’s going to be a little bit of a challenge, as she stands on one foot on the mini stand.

Here’s what I mean (in this she’s primed and ready to paint):

I know it looks black and white, but my ink blotter underneath is gray!

Look closely. See that foot that’s next to the attached rock? Yeah, that’s all she’s standing on. Additionally, she leans REALLY far forward. But that’s okay.

So I started with a difficult paint job, getting her skin tone right. She’s in an arctic-type area, so I’m making her skin tone light. I’m using a combination of the Army Painter’s D&D paint Flumph Pink, and Lawful White to get a lighter skin color.

Yeah, I know I missed her hands. Just fixed that prior to posting.

But I’m an idiot. I went in primed her gray, knowing that she had a light skin tone. As a result, it’s taking me a number of coats to be able to get her skin tone on there without gray showing through.

So, with that, I’ll leave you all with the knowledge that I’m going to do some more work and get that posted in a couple of weeks. She’s a detailed girl and I want to get her right! So one more coat to cover the gray, do the hands, and then let her dry! I should have considerably more done by next time, if not have her done. We’ll see.

Until next time, Dear Readers…
