Wow! Your hours of effort really shows in your results.  That is beautiful!

You might look at clear acrylic flight stands (for mounting aircraft using in gaming) to use as a base for the figure.

And welcome to the forum! You're off to a great start!

Very, very cool start! That's one of my favorite minis, and I haven't touched it yet, because this is how I want it to look!

(it will not look that way if I paint it.)

 

Fantastic work! I like the eyes, the ribbing on the fins, and the really nice edge highlighting on his nose and beside the dorsal fin.

For a new painter, your off to a great start - your Goroloth is fantastic! Great work!

 

Re painting tips, there's loads of good advice on these very forums & everyone is very friendly & helpful. Try following some members "WIP's" (work in progress) topics/posts - they can give you an interesting insight into members working practices which you can maybe learn from & adapt to your own style. There's also loads of tutorials etc on Youtube.

I have watched many hours of Youtube guides on miniature painting! They are very helpful!

      There is a page where I can see the detailed images and the names of each miniatures in Bones 4.
      https://www.reapermini.com/Bones4
       
      Is there such a page for Bones 3? I got a lot of Bones 3 kickstarter minis but cannot figure out the name of miniatures in, say, Graveyard Expansion or Stoneskull Expansion.

      Hello again all.  I have to link these photos because Kelpies don't wear clothes down there in the seaweed!  I hope this post works, I've never linked images before.
      I started work on the first one thinking it was just something "throwaway" that I did to shake things up after all the undead I had been painting.  But when I started glazing the first one I was just so happy with how it was going.  Looking back now she actually could have used even more maybe, but I was happy with the work anyway.  The sand base not so much, the paint under the sand was too dark and shows through.
      The second one, leaning further over spreading her arms, was a mixed bag.  The base is much better, the sand looks more like its natural colour since the paint underneath was much lighter.  She had some wicked mold lines on her that were difficult to remove given her pose, both arms forward and the seaweed in between, etc.  One goes right across her chest above her breasts, her arms have several...  Anyway I just tried not to let them show in the pictures.  Her glazing was perhaps a little more rushed so it could have been better, but I was just so excited to post them because I was so happy with the work on the first one.
      Anyway please let me know what you think guys, I think I have done some great learning after attempting my first glaze only three or four miniatures ago.  I am also very impressed with my progress.  I have painted 7 minis since the beginning of August.  That is my most productive two and a half months ever!  I hope I can keep this up, I'm a beginner but have spent a lot on my setup already, I'd like to get enough done to say it was worth it!

      Just a bunch of Eastern myth themed minis, mostly from Bones III and one Kenku/Tengu Monk from Stonehaven.

      Oh, and some Myconids from Ganesha Games and Bones III plant monsters.  More Mario than myth, I suppose.

      I like the male Kitsuine a lot more than I was expecting.  His pose, with all its swagger, adds a lot of character.  I also hadn't noticed the sake cup he was holding until I started painting.

      Whipped this guy up while taking a break from a few bigger projects.  There are a LOT of touchups that I need to make, but for a palette cleanser, I think he turned out pretty cool.  I think I need to find a place in my house with better lighting, because I notice a lot of detail errors when I get the close-up picture taken that I never saw when painting.  Does anyone use magnifying glass or something else to help with smaller parts of a fig?  I have excellent vision, but the difference between just looking at a fig on a tabletop and getting picture taken is pretty stark.  Now I need to come up with a Big Bad Evil Guy so I can use this guy during an adventure.  I appreciate any advice and critiques!  Thanks!

      Intellect devourers were always one of my favorite D&D monsters, so I'd been planning on painting this mini eventually, but I never got around to buying it since it was kind of plain compared to most other minis.  As fortune had it, though, I got it as a bonus with my last order from Reaper, so I decided to just do it.  Color scheme was based on a mixture of the AD&D 2nd Edition Monstrous Manual intellect devourer, the more "realistic" 3rd edition version, and a smattering of actual crabs.
       

       
      As usual, the process of working on it is on my blog: link
       
      Unfortunately, I wasn't sure how to handle holding a mini without a base that I could stick on top of a shot glass.  I held it by unpainted parts for as long as I could, but in the end, I held it by the brain to finish off the talons.  Sadly, that led to some of the paint getting rubbed off (probably could've avoided at least some of that if I hadn't been squeezing it so hard, but it's easy to forget my strength at times).  Aside from that, though, I'm rather pleased with how it turned out .  It was a simple mini, but I enjoyed it.  C&C welcome (especially any tips for how to avoid damaging finished paint on baseless minis, short of varnishing a completed area to hold it by for the final parts).
