Defender of Empire

Meet Octavia from Kabuki Miniatures.

Just like all sculpts from that line, there are a lot of nice sharp details, which make them very nice to paint.  This one was fun to balance out the various shades of gold, along with the reds.

As you can see on the cloak, I tried to have a color transition of a cooler red to something more warm.  Even more so is the transition from a more muted grayed down red to a very pure red.  In this case, Reaper's Clear Red.

The stone of the base made a very nice contrast to all of these warmer colors!

I tried to reflect some of the stone color into the golds of the shield, and also on to the skin tones.
