Liralith, Dark Elf Chick or "My spider sense is tingling!"

Painted March 2004

I must say, I learned a lot while painting this mini. The first lesson was that if you use green flock for the base and prime it and paint it black, the green colour will still dissolve and mess up everything if you put snow on the base. I had to repaint the snow a couple of times.

I also learned that doing reflections on hair is much harder than it looks.

I'm super happy with the skintone. I think it looks almost transparent and so very cool (pun intended) on this mini! I'm also very happy with the way her face turned out. For some reason I made the spider look pretty goofy. I don't know why exactly, but I think it might have something to do with the lining around his eyes.
