Well, the first thing I learned is "I am not Frank Frazetta. Not even close."
I also learned that I STINK at digital photography, durnit. Either that, or I REALLY need a new phone.
The Death Dealer's face is perpetually in shadow. Frazetta makes this look as natural as the day is long. I make it look like he got hit with a black paintball.
I was terribly afraid I would screw up the Murder Chicken shield emblem, or the shading on his shield. I did not. Apparently, I can do shading. Now I just need to work on functional miniatures photography, durnit. And there are some things drybrushing just can't do.

I really like this sculpt from Bronze Age Miniatures, they only have him listed by his catalog number, no name. Somehow befitting a barbarian. This is my first "sculpted" base. I took a 1" sq cube and opened up the middle on one side with a jigsaw. Then further "enhanced" with a dremel rotary tool. Added cork, snow (Scene A Rama and Golden extra heavy gel) and a winter tuft (Army Painter). Not done yet, but the base is close. As for the Snowbarian, he is just waiting till I get a bit more comfortable with the brush. By that I mean until I finish my test work on other figs.
I have had this Bronze Age Miniatures barbarian on the WIP shelf for far too long; its a great sculpt - very Frazetta-ish! I tried to do the skin in a paler tone, and worked more with glazes than my usual layering/blending. I used Army Painter Barbarian Flesh as the base, then glazed that with Reaper Flesh Wash a couple of times and started working back up with the Barbarian Flesh plus an old Ral Partha Noble Flesh added in for each successive glaze/layer. The hair came out a little blue but I am going to leave it and move on. As always, I love David's sculpts and he has a ton of other great barbarians I look forward to getting to.
