However, I got a lot done today, which I'll share with you ahead... Please keep in mind that I'm still skipping the contrast step, that'll come next.
It starts with legs, because why not? Well, actually, because I like to start with colours I'm more sure of how I want the composition. That way, more of the model will be complete when I'm deciding on smaller details.
So I blended up her legs, then her top. I highlighted with pink, which you always need to be careful about... otherwise it looks too unnatural.
First I blotched it with a dark grey paint using a rough dry-brush. (dabbing, not brushing) I'd have sponged if the area wasn't so small.
I followed up with the same technique, but using white paint instead of dark grey.
As a final touch, I washed a dark grey/blue paint over the armour to "steel" it.
So I'm not great with faces, but for charity, I'll try. Went light on the lips, and a slight highlight. Painted a little blush on first, then some tan as a shade and off-white as a highlight. The eyes were simple white, yellow, black dots... and don't forget to mark on some eyebrows.
And now, some larger photos to show you overall how Lilith is doing... Next up, I'll be cell-shading with some deep black washing, highlighting here and there, and doing what touch-ups are required. After that, will be a little glow effect on her hand for the whole psychic-power-blasty-thing.
You'll also notice I've highlighted her hair a little more, and taken care of the trim on her cloak.
By the way, I left this photo near original quality if you want to blow it up...
With many thanks to MiniWarGaming and their crew for donating the miniatures that are being painted for this project.
Final figures will be auctioned off, all proceeds going to the Childs Play charity during the Headshots from the Heart marathon.
