Alyx, Female Youth
« on: April 28, 2012, 03:03:21 PM »
I finally found my way back to the lovelier figures in Miniature-world (after too long being stuck into WH and LOTR) and I can't believe I've kept this one so long in a dark box somewhere in the backlog...  :oops:

I enjoyed painting this one, first time I tried a kinda tarp-pattern and I'm very pleased with the result :-)
Hope you like her.

I'll second that - excellent work! Really lovely job, and I really enjoy the base. Man, that green is bright! ...and the tartan pattern on her skirt is to be commended, sir.

Thanks!  :D

@ MartinWhitmore : the green is actually Green Fluo (over a white basecoat) from the Vallejo Model Color paints.
(aswell as the lipstick, fingernail-polish and teddybear-belly are finished with Magenta Fluo).
Thanks for the comments on the tartan, I will definately repeat it! :-)

Awesome work. Those eyes are amazing amongst other things. How'd you do them?

Thanks! :-)

For the eyes, I usually just did a black dot in the middle of the white eyeball, but this time I tried a blue dot for the iris, and instead of black in the middle, I tried a white dot as light-reflection. I figured it looked better.
The "shadow" around the eyes is just watered down black.
I gotta admit I was lucky with this figure since her left eye is covered. For some reason, I just can't paint a left eye and usually screw up the entire face by trying too many times.

Nice :D

the name of her school is particularly apt :yup:

 :jawdrop: I love her hair and eye! Wonderful job!
I'm not respectable, and never sensible - I've been incredible, so damned irascible..
..and I like the things I do, so hooray for me.
