|Dark Sword Wood Elf Goddess (light skin) - work-in-progress on hair and dress|
|Pastel-like green colours seems apt for a Wood Elf goddess|
Besides the Wood Elf Goddess's hair and dress, the only other work I did was to block out the metal or jewellery parts on her head and neck using pure black paint. I also blocked out her eye sockets using Reaper Brown Liner in preparation for future paint work on the pupils and irises.

|Although tempted to splash on brighter highlights, I resisted as her hair would have turned out too yellowish|
Aided by wonderfully sculpted hair, I was pretty happy with how the red hair turned out. Although I was tempted to add an additional highlight using very light orange, I resisted the urge to do so because it would have turned the hair too yellowish for my liking.

As for the Wood Elf Goddess's dress, I wanted a very light and pastel green look to accentuate her light skin and red hair. I love pastel colours so going with this shade of green was an easy choice.

Giving voice to a monster
Meanwhile, if you have ever wondered how a four-eyed monster (i.e. moi or my alter ego if you will) sounds like, well head on over to my blogshop post over at http://shireworks.blogspot.com/2014/08/unboxing-of-knight-models-thor-and-loki.html to hear me doing a short unboxing video for the Knight Models Thor and Loki miniatures. I might not have a bass voice like Barry White or Darth Vader (now wouldn't that be cool) but hopefully I was clear enough to be intelligible to viewers.
