  1. Lovely. I've painted her too recently, the metal version. My scheme was more like "anti-paladin". Love how precise the eyes and eyebrows are. About the snow, it's not a critique because looks great and 100% realistic, but I recommend "Valhallan Blizzard" from Citadel; it's kind of a paste that you can apply easy, and when it dries and solidifies, it looks like a pretty decent snow. It saves a lot of time!
  2. Wow. I'm with @Cyradis, two tone cloak is something new to me, I'll try to work on something similar! And I love the tartan and freehand, impressive. It's all so neat! I painted this mini too, some time ago, and I also tried a freehand on the shield.
  3. Loooove it. I'm working on a "Witch coven" scenario (it's a long shot, because the "Tree of despair" from Bones IV will be part of it) but a piece like that as something the witches summoned will look cool. Could you give me an idea about it's size?
  4. Thank you for your advice! I will def apply it. My issue is that I'm a total lunatic: I have a huge (huge) amount of minis to paint, so when I'm at that point where what I'm painting feels wrong, feels like it's gonna be a disaster... I stop and start another one. It has it's positive side: after a while, I re-take the work I've stopped and usually it's with a better mood and disposition. But I think it may show the disconection between the different painting periods... and it's not really good in order to keep learning. I also started a WIP thread: but again, the same problem! I'm inconsistent. I decide to paint let's say two minis, and I take a photo, and start a WIP thread. Then I see something on TV or reading that reminds me of another mini I have... and I go and paint it despite the theoretical WIP. I will def try to stick to my WIP, post them (even I didn't solved the photo issue yet) and apply the advice.
  5. I assure you, my first works weren't as good as this by far! I'm not sure If I can give you any kind of advice because I don't even know what I'm doing most of the time, when painting XD Maybe with the eyes; you seem to have used pure white, I don't ever do that: the contrast is too heavy and (to me) looks unnatural. I tend to use a beige-white (In citadel paints, Ushabti bone, so let's say an "old bone" white). If you mix your own palette, I will try white with a little bit of light brown or an ochre yellow.
  6. Wow. I kind of hate you xd how can you be so good with blending, layering?
  7. Omg I love all your work with all those Lovecraftian horrors :d
  8. Loooove the new Lysette! The previous model was already great but that one is even better ^^ for sure I’ll have a couple
  9. Oh, ok :( Then I guess I will have to either buy them from ebay or try to find someone to buy a couple for me.
  10. Ok, here someone who is a world away from Reapercon. Will these miniatures be aviable on retail? I like the three of them, Sophie, Scarecrow and Werewolf. Although I'm surprised, because I was sure the October 25th anniversary was gonna be precisely an scarecrow, with halloween so close.
  11. Great paintjob, I love the palette. I also have Nolevniss, but since its one of my favourite Reaper elfs, and not a particularly easy to paint one, I'm kind of blocked with him. I can't decide on a color scheme. To me the familiar and the staff tell a different story than the clothing and traveling wizard items. The first suggest a powerfull spellcaster on the evil side, a leader, owner of his own tower; more an imposing NPC than an adventurer. Clothing and traveling items suggest the opposite, a traveling wizard, and I always associate "traveling wizards" with "improvement in progess" if you know what I mean. So... brilliant, high quality clothes with some freehand, that suggest wealth and power? Or discrete, comfortable ones on the practical side? your scheme gived me ideas to conciliate both, so... many thanks! Great job ^^
  12. I've seen your comment on another post, it's ebonwrath isn't it? His wings are enormeous. Its indeed a lot of work!
  13. Ebonwrath is probably my favourite between Reaper's classic dragons :) I've painted him too when I started. I love what you did with the wings, makes me wish to be able to work with airbrush!
  14. Thanks to all! It was an endless work to blend all the scales almost one by one.... I didn't want to use dry brush with this
  15. That's the metal version :)
