Reverend Moira done

Well, I finished the Reverend Moira. I have also been experimenting with lighting on my photo studio, the camera on my phone, and made a spinning reel below. Not too excited about the pic quality, but I'll get some pro pics taken later.

Infinity: Reverend Moira

I needed a break from the very tedious wood grain on my Woodcron project. And mainly, I needed to 'oomph' up my skills a bit. I really wantd to go all out on a single model, and so chose to start work on an Infinity model.

This is a Reverend Moira model. I tried to somewhat copy the color scheme as seen on the Inifinity website. The black/purple/eggplant colored suit was pretty hard to copy, but I went with the punches. I still think it's  a really cool color.

As I went along, painting her this week (still need to finish the base though!), I was positively thrilled to see myself put so much effort in the details, in the smallest bits, in trying to 'do it right'. Just by working on this model - which is really a hell of a lot smaller and finer than ordinary Warhammer models - I have really learned a lot about my own patience, my drive for high quality, the ability to take as long as it needs to.
Now I am not saying that this is the very very best. Hell no, I still think some blends could have done better. But in general: learning curve gone up a notch! And I may very well have painted the best female face I eer did :)

Have a vote - STC & Secret Weapon contest

Just a quick note here. 

I have entered a "Chaotic" painting contest over at STANDARD TEMPLATE CONSTRUCT, sponsored by SECRET WEAPON MINIATURES. There are two votes to give: one for best painted model, and one for best converted model. Please have a look HERE for all entries. Mine is all the way at the bottom, but voting is done on the right side.

One note, please: Only use my model for voting on Best PAINTED, and not in the Best CONVERSION category, as I have not converted it at all. Give credit to those who deserve it!

If you vote for my model, then MANY MANY THANKS! If not, I say "Thank you" in name of STC and Secret Weapon.
