I started prepping this piece last week.

I wanted something having to deal with fur (not that comfortable with it yet).

So I decided that I would work on this one.

Looks simple, (it is FAR from that).  The undulations and the details of this sculpt are very very complex.

I am just now laying in layers of color, and I haven't even started to build up the color that I want.

I already have planned out the basing on this one, so I will probably do the base while I am painting.

 

Love the dynamics on this mini !

Here is where I am at.

C/C are always welcome !

Nice start Jay! Man I love this mini! The green you've achieved is gorgeous!

50 percent dilution, and five layers just about does it :)

I really geek out over my base colors.

If they aren't right, everything else just falls apart !

 

My goodness! he's quite svelte for a barbarian. 

Great work on the fur cape.

Thanks ultrasquid.

I still have to add depth to those colors.

Needs some black on the ridges, and I want the fox face to pop more on his shoulders.

"Layering" is on the agenda.  I'll be doing a lot of black and white photo comparisons.

Thanks for commenting !

Seems like I have a mega fun one on my painting desk.

Having a blast working on this guy.

Just started adding more color contrasts, and decided that he needed

copper armor!  I really like how that added a change, and now I can see other

colors that will come into play.  Loved adding the copper touches to the helmet bands also.

 

Here are some photos:

I find it interesting and cool that you gave him sleeves. Great stuff!

Thanks Ub3r !

I try to make every miniature that I paint my own concept, and vision.

I really liked the two painted versions on DSM; however; they're NOT me.

I liked the balance when I gave him sleeves,  and with the copper armor, I have a more earth-toned mini.

Just painted his boots a cavalry brown, which sets me up to paint tanned leather bindings, with shadows.

I'm thinking Black hair, with blue highlights...(Maybe"...LOL.

I need more color in the fur as I work up to highlights, and I want some darker fur in the middle, and Orange/Brown highlights on

face.

Looking awesome, Jay! He's reading very Loki-esque to me, which is very much a good thing in my mind!

Thanks Guindyloo;

This is a real fun one.  Fur is a challenge (but a good one).

Glad to see you back in the forums again !

Had to carve out some painting time today.

May not be able to do any for a couple of days.

Started playing with the boots, and then send.."go for the Fur"...so I done did !

Little pop and sizzle going on !

      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.
