So, life is crazy right now, but I painted this guy. I haven't had a chance to get good pictures yet. So, these are what we have to deal with. ;-) I was practicing ageing, I wanted him to look like he had been there for a while. Let me know what you think!

 

Updated photos... in hindsight, I think the fletchings should have probably been done a different color than green...

Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm not sure what im looking at.

 

Going by thread title and description, mainly, and extremities sticking out, I assume it's a corpse.

 

Under that assumption, it looks really good, though I really think better pics are in order...

 

*edit* upon further examination and being more sure I'm right on what it is, I like it! Looks like he's being absorbed into the ground cover!

I like the ageing effect you have going on.  Personally though, I think the body is too obscured by it.  A little bit less might get a better results at this scale.

I will definitely take better pictures tonight. I may even pull some of the leaf litter off of him if it is still obscuring him too much.

I used some secret weapon leaf litter, and some of the Army Painter Ivy. I used typhus corrosion on the armor to make it rough looking. :)

I just picked up some Secret Weapon washes. I'll have to look at their other offerings! thanks!

 

And though I'm not too happy with Army Painter primer on Bones, I do love their...foliage?

Spice cupboard for the win!!

 

 

The foliage looks great, it's just a little too much for this piece, IMO. Since he's been freshly killed, he shouldn't have that much stuff all over him. If he were a skeleton, or otherwise obviously long dead, it'd work a lot better.

 

That's just my .02 of course.

Hah! I haven't gotten to paint in DAYS because of work! I was desperate! I needed a fix! 

 

Not to mention I had to fix all of those other posts!

 

I will update with better pictures around 2300 when I get home from work. :P

 

Chaoswolf, I wanted him to look like he had been dead for a while, that's why he's rusted.

Excuse me a moment while I try to remove my foot from my mouth....

 

Ok, better.

 

 

In that case, I think you've done an excellent job. Looking back at the pictures, I can see what you were going for. Nice work.

      I had fun painting these Bones mushroom men (SKU 77345) to a tabletop standard.  Their faces are so derpy and cool!

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:
