Hei! Hei!

I had the oppourtunity to paint up Luna, sculpted by Africa Mir for the latest Kickstarter from Kimera Models. I was able to test the new Velvet paints and the brand new synthetic brushes. I really enjoyed working with these paints and the brushes and did a speedpaint on this academic sculpt of 3,5 hours that I really enjoyed. Academic sculpts are really nice to work on with a limited time frame to study a color concept or a technique or material.

There are some great versions of her in the KS by Riccardo Agostini, Danielo Cartacci and Alfonso Giraldes. I got inspired by them and wanted to create something different, this is why she is a Vampire now. Hope you like her! Attached you can see photos on grey background, plus a photo in the cabinet beside other figures to provide a true sense of how the miniature looks.

Last days to support the KS by Kimera:

Thank you for your support in the "the Art of ..." Kickstarter!

Keep on happy painting!

    Hey man, this is nothing short of impressive. It’s really amazing to see how much character, life and energy you got out of this super-quick sketch-job! I love the decisions for the general motif and the skincolor, including the various color complexities in her skin. What particulalry stands out to me is the play with the white reflection lines and dots on the skin, and the deep-red gemstones that - together with the blood - beautifully contrast with the pale, pastel overall colors!

    Beautiful work, Roman!

    As I said, I really like the colour palette you used on her. Impressive work for 3.5 hours!
