Painted sf & fantasy miniatures by Gerrie Schenck

detailing has started on The Keeper

There are a ton of details on this figure, fun to paint but it takes up a lot of time.

Once again I am faced with the exceptional detailing on this figure: the leather book case for example has a very fine texture to it, nearly impossible to capture during painting.

I repainted the orb after my first attempt: the purple sparkles I painted on it reminded me too much of a christmas ball :) So I decided to paint it black, as it suits the figure more I think, like it's holding some dark energy. I will paint all the gems on the figure black, like the one on the pendant.

It's already looking sinister. Love the WIP shots.

Interesting colour choice - that I think you have 'pulled off' very well. I will keep this in mind for future undead figures.

I really like the smoothness of your paint hue transition. Any tips? Watered down paints? Drybrush technique? It looks great on this guy!

@HiveMind

just layering (with dilluted paints) and then some glazing afterwards.

You're not going have smooth transitions with drybrushing, never.
