Excellent work.  I really like the way the wings look.

Very nice blending of the purple and black.

 

my only criticism is the lighting...can you take a picture without harsh lighting?

There have been multiple times since I joined the forums where people have spelled it correctly in various threads......

I love the almost iridescent look you achieved with the wings, nicely done!

 

And don't worry, you didn't actually spell the dragon's name wrong. When someone posts using purple text, it means they're joking or being sarcastic. :)

 

EDIT: Oh, I forgot to mention that because you're photographing a black figure with a white background, it messes with the camera and causes the mini to look very dark and hides a lot of detail. A more neutral background, such as gray or beige, with more indirect lighting (no camera flash), would go a long way toward showing more of the detail on the dragon. Hope that helps! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Thanks!  Trying the Ruby Red and Adamantium Black together really came out well, I thought

I figured it out after a frantic look at both the box that I had finally put in the trash and at the store link :)  (although the tip regarding purple text might help me out next time!

I tried a couple more - one with my phone's flash and a few without - part of the issue could always be that I'm using a phone camera :D

Much better.  I light the transitions even more when more visible.

 

The mix of natural and artifical light can cause some issues.  Try using indirect natural light or take pictures as night with artifical light.

Very nicely done! I never thought to paint this one as a black dragon, but it worked out so well. I'm tempted to steal your idea.

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters:

      First, the actual Orcs!


       

       

       

       

       
      I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. 


      Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins!
       

       

       

       

       


      There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple.  I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.

      The next set out of Bones 3, various monsters!


       
       
      The Carrion Worm really grew on me!



      The Temple Dragon is really cool.  I hadn't even realized until I was inking it that the base was a statue of a robed woman:


       

      The Manticore, who I was specifically hoping for before they announced it during the campaign.  It's a classic monster I didn't have a mini of!


       
       
      Lastly, the Giant Cobra.  Kind of rushed this one along...he also appears to hide from the camera focus.
