Artemis Finished

Despite all the craziness that has been going on in my life I have finally managed to finish Artemis.
Artemis has been hanging around my miniature bin for a while now. Finally WAMP forum decided to run a painting contest and she got pulled out and she was finally graced with paint.

I decided not to go crazy with the paint scheme and to keep it simple. Although I couldn't resist adding a portrait of medusa onto her shield. I've been trying to push myself to take advantage of large empty  spaces this way.  Medusa was a lot of fun to paint for sure.  
I also tried the really drastic NMM on the sword that a lot of people have been doing to their GW models, and I feel like it looks like crap in real life but looks great in pictures. It's kinda odd that way.  I'm sure I could have pushed the highlights further than I did but I just wasn't feeling "it".
The base is a cheapie I picked up at my local game shop I can't remember what company puts it out. I'll have to check next time i'm there if anyone is interested.

Anyways I off and I hope you enjoy Artemis as much as I do.


  1. Your paintwork really is superb and indeed the NMM looks great in the pictures. I am less impressed with the pedestal, not sure if it works with the model since it's not particularly Hellenistic but more Eldar in my eyes.

  2. Just had to stop in and say how much I love your work! It's so cool looking through your older posts and seeing all that you've done. It's very inspiring.

  3. Very beautiful figure the color of the skin, and the lights are superb.
