Queen of the Changlings PIP 0.5 by frozenpyro71 Queen of the Changlings PIP 0.5 by frozenpyro71
Wow has it really been 3 weeks since I last posted a pic of Chrysalis, im getting sloppy :P

She has been a pain in the flank from start to finish but i'm enjoying every second of this sculpt.

At the time of posting she has about 80% of her body painted. Still lots of work to do, i've restarted the flame ring to bring it back up to speed and the wings i've hardly started. Will be a little while longer untill I can post the final pics but stay tuned as i'm going to be posting more pics as and when I can.

The dark photo is intentional, it shows of the OSL a bt better. (especially under the chin)

As always, comments, crits and questions welcome.

All figures are simply perfect. And WIP photos are really helpful. Thanks.

someone knows sculpture, nice job recessing the pupils to give it that eye-popping depth.

The eyes are not actually recessed. They are painted with a high pigment black ink.

That might explain it. Are they glossy as well, while the rest of her is more of a matte? Either way, it's awesome and wonderfully executed.

Yes the inks dry glossy and everything else is given a coat of matte varnish.

Fabulous! Your painting is great, especially on that pupil!
Just two things looks a bit strange to me: the eye with those two white micro-smudges on the left (nothing really noticeable) and the mouth (she's grinning, isn't she?). Did you use the old Citadel "Black ink" near the eyelids?
Anyway, you've done a great job with the lights! I'll look forward to see it completed with trepidation!

You are right about the whites of the eyes being a bit smudged, i need to go back and reblend those bits.
The mouth does not show well in this pic as most of it is obscured in shadow. I may have realised that photographing this sculpt will be an absolute nightmare.
It is indeed the old citedel black ink, i've still got half a pot of it in my collection. Best stuff GW ever produced and they stopped it, damn shame.
