Long Shot Loim - Red Box Games.

Recommended Posts

This is the last of the Brigand Series by Tre Manor;

 

Long Shot Loim served under the Duke of Norfolk, He wasn't always a scoundrel,

nor a brigand.  Ever since that fight in the tavern, he had been on the run.

He didn't relish the thought of having another personal confrontation, so he used

his other skill. He was lethal with a bow, and it kept him far enough away from his

target to hear nothing.  He always laid a sword at his feet, you never know if an emergency

were to occur.  He was smart enough to always give himself a back up.

 

Comments and Critiques are always appreciated, and desired.

I really do appreciate feed back.

Jay

 

I have added two photos of the trio of Brigands to the photo set.

So here is Smarty Sean, DIrk the Ne'r Do Well, and Long Shot Loim

together.

Should have done that in the beginning.

Here they are:

Looks good Jay! I like the little bit of glint you put on his sword scabbard at the bottom. 

 

The only critique I would give is how you laid the sword at his feet.  Parellel like that, almost makes one think it is just a stem off the mini.   Next time maybe stick it into the earth at a slight angle so it appears like he can just reach out and grab it to start swinging.

 

(you asked after all)

 

(OH and I see zero orange there.. just saying)

I tried standing the sword up, and it became THE focal point !

I maneuvered it all around and it just didn't look natural, finally I laid it down so that it fit.

It only looks like an extension of the sprue in that lasts photo, its far enough from his feet.

 

I thought you would have picked up the orange and brown I mixed for the highlights on the leather breeches !

Hummm   I definitly missed that.. I did see the brown highlights but they looked more yellow than orange.   More than likely my monitor than the actual image.

 

I sit corrected.   :blush:

Wow, another great job.  Your contrasts on your colors are very nice.  My monitor reads the brown highlights as orange when I look at it closely.  Not a glaring orange, just a nice brown highlight.

Thank you Malefactus, Silvervane, and Citrine.

Since I admire all of your work it makes me happy to hear that I am

getting better.  I've been working on improving the intensity of those highlights,

with an occasional brush tip spot highlight.  Never thought I would do that !

Was thinking of adding a photo of all three brigands together to the photo set ?

Good or bad idea ?

Fantastic idea! You read my mind I was going to ask you to do that today, but got busy.

I have added a two set of photo's of the three Brigands to the initial photos of Long Shot Loim.

I should have done that in the beginning.  They are a threesome group of Brigands/Scoundrels.

Now you can see the inter-connectivity.

      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:

      “OK, so the Fireball spell didn’t work that well. Any other ideas Owl?”
      “Hoo!? You asking me!? I’m just an owl.”
       
      Probably my last mini for the year.
      Wasn’t planning on painting the cloak brown since it sorta merges with the hair and owl, but a slight accident forced it on me.
      I like the way it turned out tough.
       
      Thanks for looking.

      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.
