Rita Young can be found in the Mansions of Madness core box, hence the quality of the miniature – it stinks!
Detail was more of a suggestion than anything else and things like the sash she’s wearing disappeared totally at points. The flesh was pretty indistinct of any detail at all and I’ve tried my best to give it some with the highlighting.
Talking of the flesh, I wanted her pale to match the card art, which I think I achieved, but I also wanted to introduce a bit of blue into the mix. So, after prepping the flesh in my normal manner – Basecoat of Tan followed by layers of various mixes of Tan, Pale Flesh, and Elfic Flesh – I glazed over with Pale Blue before adding any finishing touches. The blue doesn’t really show through, though, and whilst I never mentioned it in the post, when I painted Charlie Kane I added some Glacier Blue into the mixes and that worked much better (I’m posting things out of order for some reason known only to the inner workings of my mind!).
Turning to her dress. I used the Zenithal priming I’d done as a guide to where to put the various tones. For the shade, I used Electric Blue, then for the Mid-tone, Electric Blue + Glacier Blue, and finally for the highlight, I added even more Glacier Blue.
That’s about it for Rita. Simple to paint because with a distinct lack of detail, but I do like the pose. She looks good running away from everything because that’s what you do in the game – RUN AWAY!
