One more Sniper Girl box-art for Manufaktura Miniatures

Here is last third box-art Sniper Girl for Manufaktura Miniatures I painted in June. This is same sniper as second one, but in different pose. So she painted in the same color scheme.
I am enjoyed greatly while paint this miniatures so I want to paint one of them for my own collection this after my current GD crusade will over.
So I hope you like this one.

A quick dark leather recipe

Long time since we had no recipes. There is something to share, but the total lack of free time affects :-(
Here is a small recipe for "leather" products of small size, pouches etc.
Basically now I use browns and oranges from Pacific88 Art Color for this, but now I was asked to do it based on Vallejo / Citadel.

base - black + Dark Fleshtone (Vallejo Game Color)
highlights gradually adding Flat Brown (Vallejo Model Color) to the pure
then Flat Brown highlights with the addition of Skrag Brown (Citadel Layer)
add a very little Scrofulous Brown (VGC) and highlight up using Iraqui Sand (VMC).
At the end, we paint the little lines with a semi-transparent Iraqui Sand.

Yolanda Skorn

Good news everyone! I worked on this model in the breaks between endless space marines to get just a little rest. So now Yolanda Skorn is finished. Unfortunately I don't know who sculpted this beauty but this guy did a very nice job. It is my first Necromunda miniature but I am sure a far not last. Hope you like it as much as I am enjoyed in the process of painting.

P.S. the miniature wants a new home, write me someone interested

Marines Malevolent project: augmented melta-guy

Good news, Everyone!
First Marine from my new space marine project now painted, only base left. I tried to do him as "old school" as I ca in remembrance of good old days when no one ca imagined the Great Rift or Primaris space marine.
What I can say more... yellow is a @&$^! tough color. Really easier to do a NMM bionic leg that the yellow normal one.
So stay turned 'cause more bright color old school marines is coming!

Traitor Librarian project: the final

The Traitor-Librarian project is finally over and went yesterday to a new home. This project took considerably more time than I had originally planned and was one of those rare works that I would gladly leave in my collection. While working on this miniature, I came up with several interesting ideas that I will definitely try to realize when I make such an uncle for myself.
I hope you were also interested in watching the process and liked the result.

Traitor Librarian part 5: Burn Fire Burn!

The last part of the Traitor-Librarian project log will be devoted to the fire demon and glow effects.

The first thing that I would like to note is that the fire and all sorts of similar effects are better drawn on a light undercoat. Because I primed miniature with black, I need to do a layer of the light undercoat. I used Khaki (VGC), but in principle, any extra opaque light colors would work.

Usually, I paint from dark to light, and it can be difficult for me to change to another method of painting. So I chose a compromise option: first cover everything among the middle color, and then go both ways. As an basic middle color, I chose Scrofulous Brown (VGC).

It should be noted that painting a flame is a rare case when I do not make a color transition, but paint with pure colors or individual mixtures of them.
For the highlight of the base color, I used Dark Tangerine and Yellow from Pacific88 and Ice Yellow (VMC)
For darkening - Scarlet (VMC), Flat Red (Andrea) and a mixture of Flat Red and black.
The tips of the horns and  flames on the demon's head are painted purely black, also I put some dot of pure Ice Blue to simulate sparks.

To do some reflexes from fire, I used Scarlet and Flat Red, adding, if necessary, Dark Tangerine.

Traitor Librarian part 4: Reds

Since I have repeatedly written about working with reds in previous projects, I'll just describe the used colors and techniques. On this model I used two variants of red, warm on a cloak and a tabard and a cold red-magenta on a book and a staff.
