And finished and based, with some Testors Dullcote:

If I was to critique myself, I would say that it's time to try a bit more blending on my next one, with an intermediate highlight, and maybe some small extreme hightlights. My highlights were too light, so I had to go back with a flesh wash and blue wash to bring them down a bit.
I will also remember to paint the eyes early.
I am getting the hang of dilution, but probably need to be less afraid of wasting paint, since the little dabs I work with tend to not be fully mixed, so are weak and chalky. I'll start working with more figures at once so I can use the excess paint next time.

Perhaps a little dry brush of a contrasting color on the axe blade would help too. It would bring out the texture of the blade. Looking pretty good :)

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share your pix of creations from the Bones Conversion Classes in this thread. 
       
      I will **start:
       

      As a beginning exercise Gene Bobby and Jason had everyone pick a body, add one thing, and pass it to the right. That was repeated three times. These were the result.

      I had a really good time with this kit, and I feel like I learned a lot from it, too.  Win-win!
       

      This is probably my best paint job to date, and it was pretty cool to see those highlights and shades build up layer by layer.  Similar to the skeleton in the first kit, this one was quite fun to work on despite being a fairly simple model.
       

      If the wizard was the best paint job, this one was the most fun.  Sadly, something about the posture just confounded me when it came to trying to take good pictures of it.  Also, those lips
       

      I was a bit sloppy with this one, probably because I wanted to just finish with the kits and get on to doing my own minis again.  Nevertheless, it was a neat challenge to try doing so many layers of colors for this one, and if nothing else, that left eye is probably the best eye I've painted (right one's a bit of a mess ).
       
      On the whole, I'm very grateful for all of the people who suggested getting the LTP kits.  Definitely a great couple of learning tools.  Many thanks!

      Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.


      The group:


       
       
      The Oni:


       
       


       
       
      The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.


       

       
       
      Just some Human Monks:


       



      The Kenku/Tengu:


       

       
      This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:


       
      Flock!

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.


       
      Vegepygmies:


       

       
       
       
      Plant Dragon:


       

      Death Lilies or something like that!
