Looks great, but as a painter I've developed a dislike for sculpting round eyeballs. It makes it difficult to paint a mini looking forward, as the whites of the eye are recessed and the dark pupils are sculpted outward. Sandra Garrity has done it forever, so obviously there is a place for that, just my 2¢.

Very well done!  Love the expression on his face.  The details a nice and sharp.  Very impressive.  The only part I don't care for is the revolver, which (IMHO) is way too big.  That would be 20 to 30 lb of steel IRL. But that is more of a taste thing anyway.  

 

I absolutely love the boots; love the detail you put in them.

The revolver looks like a beefed up Lefaucheux 20-Round, very cool sculpt.

I like it. I don't mind the big guns as it lends a cartoony feel to the mini which I like. I'm not much for this eye style though. It's a matter of preference as a painter rather than it being done poorly.

 

I can't wait to see more.

      Another attempt at NMM.  And funny enough, on another dwarf.  And my first shiny gems.  NMM is a touch inconsistent this time.  I ended up rushing it a bit after the hubby said he wants to use it for a D&D character he started playing.  But I have two of these fellas, so I get to work on it more on the other one and as much as red IS the color of dwarven beards, I'll probably play around with a little salt and pepper on the next one.

      I speed-painted this guy for an upcoming encounter because I was surprised not to have a dwarf miniature with a hammer. I really like how he came out, and how the encounter went down. So yay!

      Good evening all,
       
      so just finished this one, another really fun and adventurous Dwarf sculpted by Jim Johnson back in 2002-2003. Another piece from the Hackmaster line from Kenzer and Company, but was acquired by Ral Partha and now being cast by them.  Hopefully dwarfy enough colors, started out with his skin as tanned highlights and gave him some nice black hair.  I thought about doing something with the runes on his axe but then just figured I'd leave them as metal.
       

       
      Enjoy!

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.

      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!

      I finished this guy last night. I gave him some tattoos; on one hand, I'm (relatively) happy with my attempt at freehand, on the other, I'm really not that great at 2-d art. I'm pretty happy about getting his eyes to look ok, though.
       
      Please let me know what you think.
