So I've been looking at this fella a little too long on my shelf. Time to tackle this.
I've moved from my usual painting station, due to my daughter having a sleep over. I can't take the crappy music any longer!
Anyway I'll be updating this as I progress through the night. Good bad or ugly.

Stared work on this guy finally!
I sculpted the base myself. I really like that he is slight bending at the knees which made him standing on the stairs i made look more authentic.
On to the painting!
Texture is the name of the game from this weekend.
GW: Vomit Brown (which is like a yellow brown) on the tunic. Several coats until I could not see grey from the primer. GW: Vomit Brown & Leather White (my favorite paint bottle ) [4:1] - To do some upper highlights on the all the raised areas. Dotting or Stippling with a Mixture: GW Vomit Brown mixed with Walnut brown. So the color was a little darker than the tunic's primary color. Then stippled or dotted with Walnut brown over THE ENTIRE THING. After that I did some diluted brown washes pushing into the recesses and some re-highlighting, re-shadowing, etc etc. The pants:
Painted in Leather White highlighted in PURE White washed in Muddy Brown (which is a green brown.) The bag:
Painted Royal Purple, highlighted with Leather white then washed in Muddy Brown
This is the 2nd figure that I finished coming out of my hiatus. My goal with her was to do extreme on source lighting, imagining an adventurer going into a totally dark room with a flashlight shining on her.
As a weeping angel, I thought it would be neat to make her shielding herself from the light, but awake on the side where it is dark. The photos sortof capture her red eye. Not canon with Dr. Who, but I thought it was a liberty worth taking.
I also tried to make the statue look like she's made out of marble, but honestly, I don't know if she's light or dark marble due to the lighting! Which considering how bright a dark but reflective surface can be, is okay with me.
Mostly, the figure was a fun little experiment.
Sorry in advance for my newbness, I've been painting for a couple years but completely new to posting and taking photos.
Here is my most recent project. I clipped a torch off of a goblin pyro to throw on this beasty's base. I have not sealed this one yet. I have a lot I'd like to learn and one of them is how to seal my minis without them getting too shiny or clogging up the details.
Well here it is. I do not recall the paints used - I also need to work on tracking what I use especially when mixing paints - but I am pretty sure I used the yellow and orange from the reaper holiday paint set for the torch/osl.
As part of this month's getting to know you thread a challenge was proposed, try a technique you've never done before. For me that was OSL. So I used the Mousling Druid to attempt this. For a first try I don't think it turned out too bad. The lighting in my room isn't great so I hope it reads okay.
