It’s taken me an age and several attempts to paint this miniature. My main challenge was the face; I had tried the techniques I’d used to great success with Ramos, Howard and Joss. When I tried to make this more feminine I ended up with what would be generously described as exaggerated drag. As a result this model sat around for a while, until my recent success with the showgirls.


I didn’t take great notes of the colours (this model was done in a rush to try and get it ready for Cancon), but what I did not is below. The flesh is the same as Colette.
