Foliage and metal...

Here's another one of those classic Dark Sword figures. As usual, a lot of nicely sculpted details.  Not only does it make it easier to paint things such as the hair, face and hands, but the metal parts are also much easier to work with.

The tree is a fun piece of foliage, which is surprisingly resilient and tough.  It was just the thing I was looking for with this piece.

I also combined it with another vine set.  It seemed to go quite well with it!

She's also here:

Man on the run!

Or should I say Beastman.  Yet another in the Mierce Miniatures series.

I didn't realize that I was experimenting with a few different colors for skin tones, mostly due to the fact that I only used paint jars that were actually sitting in front of me ;-)

I don't recall any names of those colors off hand, but I can say that they were more saturated that what I have been using lately.  In fact, the yellows and the reds which I mixed together for the main base were pretty bright.

It was the use of the lighter seafoam greens which toned it all down, and kept it from getting too nuclear :-)
