Works in Progress

This weekend has given me a bit of time to paint and a couple of miniatures have gotten closer to finished.

First up, the Scooby Doo white face has been toned down a bit.

I was expecting to have to do a few washes but one wash mixed the right tone did a good job I think.

Next we have an elf I had sitting on my painting table.

I wanted to paint a grey mottled cloak. In the Lord of the Rings the cloaks given by Galadriel were described as a muted grey that seemed to shift colour but was otherwise unremarkable. I put a scratch on the cheek by accident as much as anything. I wanted to try free-handing a tattoo but my initial brush strokes looked more like scratches so I left them as is.

Having a few minis waiting for basing gives the opportunity for an impromptu diorama:

Elves versus undead.
