Reaper #3150: Siobhana, Vampire Noble [, Ready for a Relaxing Evening] [6 of 14]
This is for round three of "Iron Painter 3" (theme: "‘SHEER Madness’").
I spent the better part of a week looking through my unpainted miniatures, trying to find something to paint for this round. I cleaned and primed a number of miniatures, but in the end I decided against using any of the miniatures that I already had. I purchased this miniature specifically for this contest, as it appeared to me there where several possibilities for fullfilling the sheer part of this round and vampires typically seem to meet the "madness" part also. I had never tried a sheer effect before and was a bit hesitant about this round.
I really, really do not like broccoli bases. Normally I cut them off, but I didn't even know how to approach it in this case. I ended-up gluing the miniature to a round 30mm base, and using Green Stuff to fill in the base. I sculpted stones in the Green Stuff to blend in with the base as much as possible.
In the end, I was not satisfied with the sheer look of the top of the dress, but ran out-of-time for the contest, so left it the way it was at that time. It was unfortunate that I spent so much time choosing a miniature to paint, since I think that another few hours of painting would have helped the bodice and the glass.
This is the first one of my miniatures that I did an article about on my website, so that was an added bonus for me.
