Painted May 2004
Tiriel is such a lovely sculpt. She's quite fun to paint too. I decided to work a little on my skills (or lack of skills) with painting metallics. I've found out that trying to blend metallics like I blend with non-metallic paint is just useless. Instead, I tried using lots of inks and glazes and that works much better. The steel armour was given glazes of i-Kore armour wash, Reaper Black Ink, and Vallejo Blue glaze.
The highlights on her hair are painted on to make the hair look shiny. I think it turned out really well on her fringe, but not quite so well on the rest of the hair where the effect is more subtle.
