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:

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.

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.
