Very well done J white is a huge pain

I forgot how painful white was when I decided to do the horse.

I have four (4) shades of white going on all over that pony !

I think I painted the horse alone at least three times over..LOL.

Very well done Mr. Jason and the photographs look great too! ;)

 

Something about those fall leaves that just makes me see the speed in the gallop! I can smell the rush of the fall windows and the horse. Thank you for sharing Mr. Jason.

Ah, you're bringing back memories of when I tried painting a white unicorn with enamel paints!  :;):  I put so many layers of paint on trying to get it smooth that I was starting to seriously lose detail! 

 

Fortunately the elf steals the show with the burnished patina on his armor and his rich blue cloak.  Lovely job once again!  ^_^

Thanks Devin;

You helped me a lot with that photography, and thank you for such a poetic description of

the mini !  Jay

Thank you Littlebluberry;

I can relate to the paint incident,

That touch of orange/brown in the armor color really gave me something to highlight !

The blues were fun to work with.

Ub3r n3rds  reminding me to use my color wheel to get the complimentary colors in the shadows

really paid off there !

You've done a wonderful job with both the horse and rider. I love the base!

Thank you chaoswolf !

It was a lot of fun to do (but white is not for the faint of heart).

I came on the idea of the base since robinh is a fan of orange, and

I had incorporated orange in the plumes, in his armor (tinted with an orange and brown),

and in his kilt, and legging bottoms.  Figured the orange leaves in the base would tie it all together.

Thanks for taking the time to give me feedback !

Thanks everyone for the positive likes.

25 mm mini's are a bit difficult to paint, and especially show,

since they are so small. (1 inch).

Nice job, Jay. White made me put down the brushes for two months during my first year of painting :p

Thanks Cash !

White scares the heck out of me, but it is part of that Rite Of Passage to being a Mini painter.

I recognize that, but wish my knee's didn't buckle when I start !

I feel that way every time I try something daunting, and I've found even when it doesn't work out I learn something and I'm glad I tried.

      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:

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.
