I'm doing something a little different.

Rather than do a WIP, I'm kinda doing an "Okay this is what I am up to".

I'll post things to this "WIP" as I move along. 

Gets me away from the "do some work, take photos, edit photos, crop photos,

post photos syndrome.  I need to focus on just painting for a bit.

So, here is the mini almost all base painted.

I'm planning on some freehand on that shield.

He's also painted in old bronze for the armor.

Nice work, I like the green and gold.  I myself have moved to the same idea in my WIP's for much the same reason.  Unless someone specifacally request how I did something, I just show where I'm at.

Moving along in the painting.  Put a midtone in the cloak, and shield, green pants, browned up the leathers,

and add a base blue to cloth at bottom of armor. 

Lots of highlight opportunity.

This is a very dynamic figure !

 

Here are some photos.

The armor was way too shiny for my taste.

I went over it with a glaze,  then more highlighting.

I need to cover over some of the brown glaze in a few spots.

Though I like the toned down effect much more than the previous look.

Aha !!!  Antique gold was the resolution to the shading problem.

I reworked the entire armor section on the mini, and made adjustments to the shadow

layers on the basic colors.

This is looking much more to my liking.

 

Here are some photos.

Amazing what some time, light, paint, optivisor, and my W&N brushes can do.

I just decided that my coffee was cold enough probably to drink...LOL.

Always can tell when I am enjoying a miniature, the coffee is ice cold when

I remember that it is there.

 

Here's where I am at with the Warrior, and I REALLY like where he is at now !

Really digging the colors.

Jay

looking real good there mister Jay!    I especially like the green cloak and its highlights.  They are bright and well blended in.

Really fantastic work on him. I can tell you are enjoying this project!

This one is a blast to do,all that detail, and sliding the highlighting around, and trying to go with the

dynamics of the figure.  its exciting to do !

ROFL, glad the knight is armed!  Playing with the greens, and golds, and doing a little freehand;

makes this whole project a delight.  Thanks to you both. !

      Hi all, here is this week's Critter. The details on this model are beautiful. The pineapple is nice wink to the Earl of Dunmore and the Scotland culture. I may need to paint a strap to hold these three vials in place. DSM8110, Scottish Fold Cat Cleric with Warhammer was sculpted by David Summers for Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms Anthropomorphic Animals line. It's a three-piece model and I've painted the shield and hammer before gluing them to the body.

      Hi everyone, here is my latest Critter, Frankie the Rogue. I like the bohemian appearance of this model. I'd say the bardic way of life came naturally for this Siamese Cat.
      This two-piece model is DSM8104, Frankie Cat Rogue with Dagger from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms, Anthropomorphic Animals range. It was sculpted by David Summers. I painted the cape and the body separately before gluing them together.

      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:

      Hi everyone. I managed to complete another Critter Yesterday and took some pictures today. Being a fan of the Viking tv show, I really enjoyed painting this one. I went for orange fur this time, purrfect for a Norse Cat. This two-piece model is DSM8103, Cat Warrior with Battle Axe from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms, Anthropomorphic Animals range. It was sculpted by David Summers. I painted the fur cape and the body separately before gluing them together.
