Oh, how sweet!  And what a beautiful evocation of a medieval garden on the base.

Nice work on this one, Jay!

 

I love the sheen on the dress, and you've done some nice things on the base, too.

 

I would really like to see the blue of the dress make it to the back of the mini; a single horizontal stripe near the hem of the cloak would pull colors together and break up the very large expanse of purple, without being any spectacularly onerous freehand.

 

As ever, your color choices are loads of fun...I love the lining of the cloak.

I will place that idea in my list of things to incorporate in my painting idea kit.  I've already sealed her.   I never thought of putting that band along the bottom

of the cloak.  Thought it might just blend in.  But I never thought of picking up a color from the front, and linking them

together like that !  Great Idea !!!!!

Thank you.

Your theatrical experience is really showing on your suggestion.

That would be kick butt on a stage setting.

Just realized that when I was thinking about highlighting, and focus.

Put that under a spotlight and KaPow !

Thank you everyone.

I adore Tom's sculpts.

They are a challenge when you get to the 25mm size; but look at that detail !

I  learned to paint using his Mini's, and the pain payed off !  ROFL.

 

Anytime I see his name on a  miniature I lust after it.

Thank you for you kind words !

Jay

Thanks Melkvar, and marineal !

I really love getting my brush around these high quality sculpts.

The challenge is terrific, but when it comes out well,

you feel so good.  Tom Meirer's Sculpts are first class.

The 25mm mini's are quite the challenge...will teach you brush control

in a heart beat !

Fine work! Her dress is breathtaking.

Thanks Marvin !

A touch of Ruby Red to that hot pink adds that touch of pearl essence to kick it up a notch.

I used a touch of Blue Gunmetal added to blue to do the dress.

      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.
