Yeah, she's kind of tough to make out with the dark pic and gloss. But what I can see looks good.

 

That orcgre is awesome, nice skin tones and metal work. Always fun for a non-gamer to hear how gaming restricts things. Apparently I painted a half giant and didn't know it!

As a newbie I totally enjoyed your work.

Great Color, and your metals look terrific.

Thanks for sharing.

Really like the orcs skin tone and the goddess is great :).

 

I am shying away from the larger minis till I've done more horde / vermin

The orc-gre is pretty awesome, and I'm going to grab a bottle of that Martha Stewart stuff next time I'm at the craft store so I can use it myself. I can see it being useful for painting all kinds of celestial creatures: angels, deva... that sort of thing.

The Martha Stewart paints are relatively cheap at about $3 each, and I'd put them on par with GW paints for quality (low end of model paints/high end of craft paints).

Wow. I never expected to be so well received on a site that hosts so many amazing painters. Hell, I'm upper-level-amateur at best. Thanks!

 

The hair is GW's Shining Gold (now Gehenna's Gold) shaded with a wash-consistency burnt sepia, and highlighted up to GW's Burnished Gold (now Auric Armor Gold). The armor bits, jewelry, and mace body are the same but with a GW Mithril Silver (now Runefang Steel) 'ting' added for extra highlight.

 

And now it's off to start on the Nature Spirit? Wood Golem? What is he, anyways?

      There are some minis that are absolutely brilliant in Bones. This is not one of them. But it's a mini that works for a fellow players for our Curse of Strahd campaign, so...
       
      First problem, the staff was really bent out of shape. Impressive since it's connected to both his hand and the cloak. A quick boil and then ice bath to care of that. 
       
      Then there were three mold lines. Unfortunately extensive on the outstretched arm and on the smooth cloak. 

      Once those were taken care of, I glued him to a base, splashed on the brown liner and then began to block in colors.

      Afterburn Grey, peacock green, tanned shadow, and dessert stone were the primary colors I used to start with.

       
      That was last week, and it was enough to get the okay from my player. So tonight, I worked on him some more. Added Rosy flesh, nut brown, some black lining, and Marigold for the hair.
      I think I'm going to wash the hair with something a little more orange red, then bring up the color more with the blond triad. Not sure what to do with the leather bandoleer, but I'm thinking maybe a red leather?

      After wanting to learn how to paint minis for a long time, I was finally encouraged by some friends to take the leap. I found the Reaper 'Learn to Paint' kits and have found them an incredible resource for a new painter. While I know my work on these minis isn't perfect, I'm really happy with how they came out for the first models I've ever painted. Working through these has given me a lot of confidence, and I like it a lot more than I thought I would!
       
      I will say that I struggled more with the layering technique in the second kit than I did with the wash/dry brush technique from the first kit. I'm happy with the progress I've made, though.
       
      Now that I've finished all of the minis that came in the kits, my next project is to paint the minis in my Fury of Dracula game.
       
      I'm really happy to finally be exploring this side of the gaming hobby!

      Well, I did it.  We now have a cute little Christmas scene with mama Blightfang and her wee ones getting ready for the holidays!  A little early for some holiday cheer but it was fun 
       
      Learned a few things: don't use wood glue to hold down snow it gives a disturbing yellow cast.  Blightfangs scales are actually leaves, making her more of a forest dragon than a classic green, and I think one of her children was adopted...
       
      I really had a lot of fun with this, even if it wasn't my best work.  It came out well.  I really like the red and teal fades on the wings.
       
      I hope everyone enjoys this little window into the holidays...
       

       

       
      and one more thing.  Although it shows off the teal wings really well and it's an adventurers favorite view, the backside of a dragon is not the most exciting!

      Attached are photos of a slew of different miniatures and projects I've been working on in 2019. 
       
      The Battleguard Golem is clearly a Warforged Paladin in my mind as was painted accordingly; he's mounted onto a Frontline Games base. The Jungle Titan is on the base of a Reaper Dragon I gave my son as a toy previously. The Galladoria Games entrances are both attached to Frontline Games Stones Dungeon tiles. The Terratiles are from a Kickstarter that started fulfilling last month; they were a ReaperCon vendor in 2017 and make good stuff! On the CAV Thunderbird and Raptor, I wanted to simulate some lights; not as much love for the Kahn.  The Thunderbird was missing a shoulder mount so I subbed in a axehead from a long-age discarded figure. The Iron Golem has inspired a monster in my DND world called a Forgeblast Iron Golem and I wanted to simulate discoloration of the iron as though it is being superheated from within; I also wanted it to look as though heat was trying to escape from a few plate patches. Khai the Huntress from Bombshell is on a metal Reaper skulls base; I painted three of the skulls with a glowing green eye to add more interest.   
      Like everyone else, just trying to be creative, get better and have fun.

      This pretty lady jumped straight to the front of my painting queue, and it was about time I painted another Reaper mini:-
       

       
      Here she is, all cleaned up and undercoated in primer.
       
      Got a little further today:-
       

       
      Not going down the red skin route, so Ziba is currently covered in a basecoat of 1:2 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Wash.
       
      Aiming to get her skin finished tonight.
