First Brush - Relic Knights

I have just completed my first Relic Knights figure and I am really pleased with the result.

The game is rooted in anime, so it presented me with the chance to use some really bright colours, something I have not done for a while.  My plan was to paint them up quickly and play the game - they are not the best quality minis and this seemed like a chance to have just have some fun.

Well, I did the clean up faster than normal, meaning the mini was covered in mold lines, but I still really enjoyed the painting.  This an alternate version of Isabeau Durand, dressed as Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bepop.  I copied the colour scheme as closely as possible, using red gloves instead of the signature red jacket.  My Isabeau died her hair for this role but did not get her hair bobbed.

So this is my first big-eyed anime miniature, also my first go at stockings.  Generally, I'm pleased with the result but wish I spent more time on the cleanup.

There's a really nasty mark on the base that will need to be repainted.  I did not see it until I looked at the photo!  Funny how that always happens.

Thanks to Dais and EsperWatkins - I had a good look at their versions before I started work.

Hope you like her, any feedback appreciated.
