This is the 2nd figure that I finished coming out of my hiatus. My goal with her was to do extreme on source lighting, imagining an adventurer going into a totally dark room with a flashlight shining on her.
As a weeping angel, I thought it would be neat to make her shielding herself from the light, but awake on the side where it is dark. The photos sortof capture her red eye. Not canon with Dr. Who, but I thought it was a liberty worth taking.
I also tried to make the statue look like she's made out of marble, but honestly, I don't know if she's light or dark marble due to the lighting! Which considering how bright a dark but reflective surface can be, is okay with me.
Mostly, the figure was a fun little experiment.

So I have a way of grabbing some terrain items for a 'quick' paint job, and it turning out to be not so quick. See what I mean with the Bones book cases, and barrels, some cows, and the Bones 1 caskets.
I should have known better when I sat down to knock out just a couple of beds. Well... maybe they don't look as good as I think they do, because I know how much bleeding time I put into them, and maybe I've gotten some Stockholm syndrome towards them.
I'll let you all decide.
And just because, Here's a Pig to wrap in all those blankets.
Let me know what you all think.
Thanks for looking!

Nothing too exciting, just yet another example of my tabletop painting.
har har har... Sorry couldn't resist.
But these were actually really quick. (I had remembered my wood formula by then. Of course I yet again didn't write it down, cause I always think, "I'll remember." )
This is the 3rd mini I have ever painted. It is from the Learn To Paint Kit: Layer Up! I am pleased with how it came out, though once again I think the pictures do not do it justice. I followed the directions in almost all regards, however I used a flesh wash instead of what the booklet called for, and I tried out a Gemstone colour from GW on the gemstone. The number one thing I learned from this kit was glazing. WOW! Its so simple but it helped smooth the transitions between highlights so well that I will never not glaze again. Please let me know what you all think! I really want critiques too! Help me get better at this hobby that I love so much!
I've had this guy since the first kickstarter and have put off painting him due to his distinct lack of a nose in the bones version. A couple nights ago I decided to perform some rhinoplasty with green stuff so I could put him to use in a D&D game. I went with metallic paints rather than spend too much time blending NMM on his armor, and it doesn't hurt that he'll look shiny on the table.
The design on the shield is the symbol of the Forgetten Realms deity Tempus, but it also works for the Red Knight (whose red horse chess piece is a less exciting design to paint).
