    Studio McVey Elven Skirmisher

    Here is a miniature that I finished quite a while ago, but I never got around to posting him. He's from Studio McVey's stunning LE resin line (shame we haven't seen anything new from it for a while).


    I painted him up for an RPG, and I think he came out rather nicely. For most of my minis, I prefer to use a black undercoat, but I decided to try white on him instead, to see how I liked it.


    I discovered that I didn't like it at all. While the painting over the white isn't significantly different from painting over black, I found that it was more difficult to tell if my composition was working as I went- the bright white of the unfinished areas made it very hard to tell. Conversely, with a black undercoat, I can usually tell whether I've highlighted an area light enough and if my overall composition is working out.


    The advantage that you get from a white undercoat is that you can more easily see the detail on the mini before you paint it, but that's not something I struggle with. While some people claim that your colors will turn out brighter if you're painting over white or black (yes, I've heard this claimed about both) I find that if you're doing enough layers to get a solid base coat, there's no way to tell if you used white or black to start from.

    To be fair, he raised the standard we got from CMON, and some of them have the Studio McVey logo on them.

    But I really do miss the resin line.
