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.

      This little fella came out alright I think. My first successful attempt at painting human eyes at this scale.

      While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not.  She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.>

      77265 - Drys, Dryad
      I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle.  The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : )
       

       
      77313 - Krug, Hill Giant
      Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure. 
       

      77314 - Golan, Hill Giant
      This figure is very... uh, purple.  But I think it works well.  I might have to go over it and tidy up some of the tree branch club - the paint coverage isn't as good as it could be.  But still a lovely bit of work.
       

       
      89013 - Ezren, Iconic Wizard
      She has this annoying tendancy to rattle off freehand that's better than my "paint by numbers" detail work, elf her eyes!  This one was a fairly fast paint, with not as much shading as she's done elsewhere.
       

       
      89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic Magus
      She refers to this one as her "Michael Jackson" figure, for obvious reasons : )

      My third attempt at miniature painting. 
      I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, though it's more green than I had originally intended and I struggled to get the large metal surfaces to take more paint after the first coat.

      Hello!
       
      I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.
       
      I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?
       
      I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.

      The following is going to be an EXPERIMENT! Please do try this at home, because I'm not a licensed professional and totally feel no obligation to warn you away from doing awesome things.  
       
      My goal is to complete these 5 figures, from start to finish, within 48 hours. Whether I will succeed or not remains to be seen. It's more of a "Hey, let's see if I can paint humanoid figures quickly," and I work best with a deadline, artificial or not.
       
      Here are my 5 victims:
      89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue (Tipsy)
      89024 Holy Vindicator (Trunk SlamChest)
      77480 Durok, Dwarf Ranger (Balin)
      77440 Masumi, Demon Hunter (Tsunami)
      77320 Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (Elrohir)
       
      Group shot:

       
      That's totally not DDS2 in the background, I don't know what you're talking about. Pay no attention to that at all, totally not relevant. 
       
      So, I'll make this post my timestamp (12:00 PM PST), and away we go!
       
      Huzzah!
