  1. Had a decent amount of time to finish off most of the details. Pretty much everything except the base and possibly some glowing eyes are finished up. I may also look at messing with the back side of the axe as I'm not too happy with how that came out looking. Skin progression was as follows (all colors in Vallejo): base coat of Scarlett red, 3:1 mix Scarlett red to bloody red, 1:3 mix Scarlett red to bloody red and final highlights in bloody red. Not sure if I should add any white to make them brighter. I'm pretty happy at this point.
  2. I finally finished this guy up. Im fairly happy with how everything turned out. But I feel like I need to work a lot more on my hair and maybe next time try NMM to see how that goes. You can see most of my color choices and progress in my WIP found here: Comments and suggestions welcome!
  3. I had a little time tonight to get some more work done on this guy. I started by doing a coat of darker red on the skin. I think this color looks better to highlight up from. Then I started washing all the crevices with a black wash. After that I rehighlighted with scab red. I also washed all of the bone and the axe head with the black while I had it out. Next up will be highlighting the skin and then maybe working on the bone. Still not sure what I want to do with the pinkish breastplate. I'm thinking either trying to go back over it with a pure silver or maybe gunmetal.
  4. The cloak came from a tutorial I found on doing purple and was just excited to try it out. I had also already decided on red for the skin and figured the purple would look good with it. I was thinking for the eyes to maybe try some glowing eyes out of the sockets. I haven't done that before and thought it would work well. I'm thinking maybe yellow or green. The mustache I'm not too sure on. It's part of the cheek bone part above it that's currently painted red. I don't know if they are supposed to be like face tentacles? I might change some more of the face to bone. I still want to keep looking at that area to make sure it looks right. I'm definitely open to suggestions!
  5. Finished base coating everything tonight. I have a couple of areas to clean up but was too tired to mess with it. The breastplate also turned out much pinker than I anticipated. I'll have to darken it up some next time.
  6. Looks like you're doing some OSL from the runes? I like it!
  7. I followed along in your WIP. The finished product turned out great. Nice work!
  8. Just finished up painting the skeleton archer I've been working on and decided on this guy as my next one up. Seems to be a devil or demon with a mask on maybe? I decided to to go with a purple cape and red skin on this guy. Probably make the axe gunmetal with some silver highlights. Not sure on the breast plate thingy he's wearing. Couple of details I've gone over in purple or red that will need changed. Comments and criticism welcome!
  9. Small update as I haven't had much time to paint the last couple of days. I painted the hair a bluish grey color. I wasn't happy with how the bow was. Repainted it to look like a cherry color and tried adding some wood grain lines. Other than that just cleaned up some little details that were missing some color such as the necklace and tried blending the cloak a little better. I'm still trying to figure out what colors to paint the dagger so that I can get this guy finished up. Ideas welcome!
  10. I love the colors of the cloak and the blending on it. The metals are great also!
  11. I'm pretty excited to see what colors you decide to go with. I picked this guy up also l, but probably won't get around to painting him for a while.
  12. A litttle more progress. Dry brushed a little silver into the armor. Highlighted some details including the belt with a 3:1 mix of gold and black. Washed that with a black and umber wash then dry brushed a little bit of pure gold on the edges. Painted the green shirt tonight also. Spent most of my time on that. The green really wanted to blend in with the black when glazing. Im pretty happy with the final result. Added some hammered copper to the top of the quiver. After that it got washed of black, umber and then 4-5 washed of marine teal and a last wash of 4:1 marine real and clear green to look like verdigris. I might add another wash with some white mixed in for areas with the most verdigris. Finally I painted up the base that I've had primed and ready. I'll add some green static grass as moss after I have the skeleton attached.
  13. I had quite a bit of time tonight to paint and was able to get quite a bit done. I started with the bone and kind of combined your ideas. I started with a black wash in the deep crevices followed by a sepia wash all over to help the bone look aged. After that I washed the deep crevices again with a umber wash. Then I highlighted with my bone color. I tried to leave the horns on the helmet a little darker. Next I painted the armor with a 3:1 mix of metallic silver and black. After that I did a black wash on the armor to help the details stand out. I plan to go back and do some light dry brushing with silver to try and show some areas that show through the filth. After that I decided to base color the bow, quiver, boots and money pouch. I did the shadows and highlights in the bow, boots and bag. The quiver still needs finished up. I still need to figure out what I want to do with the dagger and arrows. Also I'm thinking grey for the hair, but I'm not sure how to go about that.
  14. Made some progress tonight on the cloak. Got a little tired at the end and the transition to the final highlight color isn't as I'd like it. Will probably glaze the mid tone over the highlights to try and blend it a little better on the edges and go from there.
  15. I figured I would make a WIP for the next mini I paint. I mostly have monsters to paint right now as I'm a little intimidated by trying to make skin look good. So far I've just got some areas base coated. Any comments, ideas or suggestions are welcome! Still trying to figure things out. The cloak and shirt are a little bright right now. I'm thinking the base colors might be closer to final highlight colors for those. Armor is a black undercoat for the dark silver metallic I'm planning.
