Monday Miniatures: Yephima
This week, as if it was somehow timed to coincide with the release of Thor (it wasn’t,) we bring you some beautiful cloud giant’s. Perhaps if we honor them well enough, then they will intercede to prevent weather delays for my upcoming Thanksgiving plans.
This week there was only one mini project that caught my attention.
Arcanengine – This is another custom 3d printing mini project. The future is now, or maybe it was last tuesday.
This weeks mini looks so much better in person. I was shocked at how many flaws the camera shows – I was very happy with the final result until I saw pictures of it. Nonetheless, I had a lot of fun. My biggest challenge was the color scheme I chose. The white toga and the ivory mace ended up looking much the same color.
Magnus joined us again this week, and chose a similar but brighter color scheme. He carefully avoided the color conflict issue I described above.
Jessica, this week chose to paint smurfette, and she turned out just smurfy! I’m kidding of course. Jessica did the best work this week in my opinion; I love all the detail she packed into this model. The patterns are detailed, consistent, and lovely.
Tonya was unable to finish but sent a WIP shot it anyway. Tonya’s skills basically blow my mind. Look at the eyes, and the color blending (the subtle stuff on the limbs and the not so subtle work on the cloak.) Truly outstanding.
Rounding out the mix, we have Clint. How his color scheme can be so subtle and coherent and, you know, better than mine every week, is something I will likely never be able to understand. I’m pretty sure his paint rack is enchanted to +3.
Update: David got his in just before I went to bed. He went with a particularly vibrant palette with his giant. I really like how it turned out, but I half expect it to glow under blacklight!
Update 2: Here’s another late entry from Godlike.
