I like the colors. They're rich without being overwhelming.

 

What was your purple trouble?

I couldn't figure out how to highlight it without it going pink. So I just put in shadows and more of the base purple. I'd love any advice you have. :-)

Your dwarf looks great! In a class she was teaching we asked Meg Maples what her favorite color to paint was. She said red and we were in shock. We asked her how to keep the highlights from going pink and she said, don't. Let them go pink, bring them up lighter than you need, then put a glaze (thin transparent layer) of the base color over the whole thing. She was right. It works with red, I bet it would with purple too.

Huh! I may have to try that! The purple was a lot of fun, but I couldn't deal with that pink! That could be the fix I have as looking for! Thank you!

I didn't like this figure when I first saw it, but your paint job is making me want to buy him.

Try highlighting with lavenders?

 

The biggest problem I have with this mini has more to do with overall shape (and I'm a dwarvophile!), the face seems to get lost in the cone shape of the head/helm. Nothing to do with your paint!

 

The (green) color/highlighting on the staff is especially well done.

White added will give you lavender highlights if you don't have any handy.

 

Nice job on this guy, I've been wanting to see him painted up since he was in the greens preview!

His face was rather difficult to pick out. I just put the eyes where I thought they should be, they were almost indistinguishable!

 

I will have to work on some more purple highlighting. My diorama plan for the forum yearly contest has this color scheme,  so I want to get it down before I put paint on those minis!

I kind of felt like this, too.
