Blade Dancer

Here's another fun Reaper miniature... and yet another candidate for the skin color videos.  On this version, I was balancing the reflected color of the turquoise costume against the fairer skin colors.  That meant incorporating that shade with the skin colors as I was mixing them.

It was more challenging to do so without the skin color becoming too gray or dull.  I did add some elements of much warmer skin colors, using the Transparent red color in key spots.

Using the warm reds for the marble and the reddish brown hair meant that such brighter red skin tones would not be too out of place.  Also, I wanted the costume to be semi-transparent, so a bit of that grayed down skin tone could be used in the deepest folds of the outfit.

This allowed me to integrate those opposing colors even more.

Again, a fun little exercise!
She is also here:

Rub a dub dub, three slugs in a tub.

Or is that three Rotters in a swamp?
Anyway, I believe this is all the Rotters now!  Yea!

I have been looking around for images of snail shells and even some sea shells for color ideas on the warriors.  You will see what I mean when the first images are posted!

There are 16 Rotters in all, so I will try to get all of them in one image for you next week.

I have no idea how I will be able to fit the whole team on one image.  Tons of support staff as well.
