Sirithis, Succubus - Reaper # 02181
Mini #6. Wow. Six of them. After looking back to hate my skeleton guy (his back sucked - I should have taken a break then come back), and feeling like the Crimson Knight got painted too dark, this one was pleasing to do.
This got an all-white prime, first. Then shadows for the zebra-striping which still amuses me. Plus, it helps me find the shadows while the paint is wet. Each piece happened in three basic steps.
Basecoat a flat mid-tone. Wet-blend shadows and highlight, using more basecoat in between. Layer on extra highlights.
The butt-cape was highlighted in a slighty different way. I used the Silks & Satin "Coral" color, laid on a little thick, for the brightest hightlights. When that dried, I made a wash which resembled the last tablespoon of Kool-Aid at the bottom of an icy glass. Very, very thin. That got washed on over the entire outfit - shadows, mids, and highlights.
The wings were kind of different, too. The black is the initial black shadow on white primer showing through. The red is Crimson, with subtle layer/highlight parts done in Dragon Red.
Things I like: The butt-cape. The skintones. Parts of the rock she's standing on.
Things I don't like: The blades look (and feel) rushed. The effects I was going for came out far too sharp, as though I didn't try to blend at all.
Overall, this one may still be my best so far.
What I learned: Wet blending works better with lots and lots of retardant.
