Something happened that we do not appreciate very much: Somebody by the forum alias named Tango01 posted the Miranda photos from this blog on The Miniatures Page, what is not the worst thing at all, because it makes us believe that this person liked what he/she saw here.
Miranda is compared in those replies with 54mm miniatures and not commented very kindly. We are not fishing for compliments, but would appreciate commenting the work on this blog. After all it were those sausage fingers that painted a really small Hasslefree face that was expertedly sculpted and can admittedly hardly be improved by adding some clumsy brush strokes of acrylic paint.
Many thanks to the experts from TMP. We´d like to see you doing better!

Milk mustache is a nice touch :)

Not to mention the unibrow. This is terrible.

I suspect she's supposed to be some form of "undead." Probably evocative of what she's like in bed.

In deference to the artist, I suspect what they were trying to do was highlight the shading on the face but I agree the effect falls flat. Pity though, they nailed the translucent fabric effect well enough. They missed the face though with too much highlighting and shadows. Still I think its at least an acceptable effort.

Still, I like the skill lads, I have a lot of brain cells popping on the 'how to' and 'what paints' will work to achieve this. So I do give it a 9 out of 10 tweddle on the actual doing of .
Cheers, practise and magic makes perfect.

Unibrow is the worst part, the fair skin doesn't bother me at all. The figure is inspired by "Miranda – The Tempest" after all.

Put a bag on her head, and it would be a nice example of painting sheer clothing.
