For Fembruary, and also for my Character of the Month, I chose to paint a Sandra Garrity classic from Ral Partha: Arianna Moonshadow, Enchantress.
I decided to paint her as a druid instead, She’s got a belt made out of animal teeth, so why not?
I have had this miniature since she was released (sometime in the early 90’s would be my guess). She been unpainted all this time, so I’m making good on my plan to use Tom’s challenge as an excuse to paint some old-school miniatures. Plus, I love me some Sandra Garrity!
It’s been a hellish month at work and I’ve just kicked off a Lamentations of the Flame Princess campaign; so I haven’t had much time to do very much hobby-wise. But expect a flurry of posts soon as I endeavor to catch up!
Wonderful work Keith, I think she works well as a druid, and has turned out excellent.
Hope work and the campaign start to work better for you, and allow some more hobby time.
Thanks, Dave. I hope so, too. As far as the miniature goes, I’m still not 100% happy with her. I just realized when I was looking at the pictures that my iPhone sees things much differently than I do. It really shows every flaw!
Arianna looks great, Keith, painting her as a druid is a great idea, and the green you used for her skirt is a lovely shade. Good job on the base, too, I really need to get some non-green tufts LOL!
Looking forward to seeing more posts from you, I really enjoy them.
Thank you, Matt. I’m running a bit behind on posts lately; but I have been enjoying painting the old-school stuff in between my current pop culture projects, the next one of which should be up soon.
Wonderful figure and painting mate, you can’t go wrong with Sandra Garrity she really is a top sculptor. I love the green skirt really suits her to a tee. As Matt said lovely bit of base work too.
Thank you, Roger. Sandra Garrity is one of the true greats. along with Julie Guthrie, Tom Meier and Dennis Mize; to name but a few. These are the sculptors that defined fantasy miniatures. (Aww, look who I’m telling! As if you need to be told!)
