If you've been following my WIP, you'll see where I put the clear varnish on the gems. I put the static grass down. I put it on a bit thicker than I wanted to, but the first attempt was too thin.

I followed your WIP and am glad to see the final basing. The grass definitely covers up some of the work you put into the skulls at his feet. :unsure:

@Adrift

It's not lost if you look at it in your hand. Which is good, but frustrating from a photographic point of view. Live and learn I suppose.

 

@DSModels

Thanks! It's IMO my best yet.

It's lovely! Great use of brighter skin tone to make the dark maroonish color on the cloth look great. Otherwise the fig would've been crazy dark with little contrast between that and the cloak.

It looks wonderful. My best suggestion is to highlight the runes on the sword a little more to make them look glowing, unless you were going for a copper/brass NMM in which case it looks great!

That looks great. Those colors go well.

 

Yellow static grass reminds me of a field of french fries.

I don't know how I missed your WIP thread, but I just went back there and read it. Nicely done! In particular I thought going for the different mask look from everybody else was neat and creative. I'd have done the same as Adrift said with the red & blue, and it seems that's how the mini "speaks" to a lot of people - but you chose to go a different road and I think it paid off.

 

Well done.

I love it for the most part. The only issue I see is that the skin on the face seems to be a different color from the arms and legs.

Just finished your WIP thread and jumped here to see the finished mini. Really nice! I've had this mini for a while now and you've given me the inspiration to paint him up...Thanks!

Wonderful shading on the skin- very realistic. And your metallics are fantastic too. Thanks for sharing.

      Been a while since I posted here. Been a few slow months. Did get to play around with OSL, and plenty of gore on this one. I like gore. :D :

      Thought I would Try my hand at something different. My dad ordered the Band of Brothers learn to play bolt action set, Knowing him it would never get built or painted so I took it apon myself to expand my painting portfolio and get some amazing historical miniatures under my belt. The plan was to shoot for right around tabletop standard and once I do a little more weathering and get the decals on I'm going to call that my tabletop +. As always feed back is both appreciated and encouraged. If you see something you like feel free to ask how I did it, I'm usually good at getting back to people.

      You know how I'm always asking for a deserty barbariany roguey elf wielding a spiked chain? This is what happens when you don't give it to me, sculptors and companies. I ruin your sculpts. In this case, Bobby Jackson's Irith, Deathseeker Hero.
       
      ~10 years ago, I created a character concept, a barbarian rogue assassin from a desert moon. Probably not that great an idea; whatever. I loved it. Didn't wind up getting to play him, but the name became my main Internet handle for a long time, and I always kept the concept in mind. This past winter I joined a game, decided he'd be a perfect fit, and made him anew. Bought a mini to mod to represent him at the table! But again didn't get to play him. Alas.
       
      But I had a mini for him this time. I'm not in love with the figure, but it seemed like a good one for converting. And it was close as I could get on the look. I guess. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, honestly. I feel like I could've done a lot worse. I cut off the original's weapons. I used jewelry chain for the chain, a hacked-up jewelry bit bead thingy for the spike, and another jewelry bead thingy for the ball. Drilled out hands, wound up having to cut them, and closed them again over the chain. Pretty simple, pretty ghetto, but here we be. Right eye turned out better than the left, I thought. I had him finished a while ago, but I was waiting on a base. It's a desert base from Micro Arts Studio. Thought it fit the theme pretty well.
       







       
      Thanks for looking!

      Hello I recently got into painting miniatures and I found I LOVE it! I play three different tabletop RPGs and I desperately needed mini's and that's how I got into it. It's my new favorite hobby and I wanted to join the community to get some feedback and help to make these better and to learn different methods and new techniques.
       
      I'll be posting the very small handful I did on the forums (again super noobie, but please critique so I can learn!!!!). Thanks everyone!
