This is super! If this is only your 7th, I can't wait to see what you are painting in a month or a year! Nicely done and welcome to the forums!

Nice work!  

 

What did you use to make that base?

Thanks for all the encouragement guys.

 

I used "green stuff" sculpting putty and formed that shape, pressed the Raven model and warlock model in, then used rocks I found outside to press into the putty for texture. Then just paint.

You are well on your way to being a master of the brush. 7th mini? Could've fooled us! Excellent work, keep it up! :)

That is one nice warlock! Love the gem on the staff and the freehand on the scroll.  And the rock texture on the base is very convincing.  I also appreciate the backstory.  The raven deserves a name.  How about "Pickins?"

Thanks! Pickins isn't a bad suggestion I may just use that during our next D&D session!

Of everything on the model I was least pleased with the skin. I was trying to go for a very pale with a tinge of blue and after trying a few different things:

-first normal skin tone with a blue wash

-didn't like it so I tried to go over it with a very thin white to brighten and smooth

-didn't like that and did a flesh tone wash over it... things were going poorly at this point

-then added a very light blue and said well I guess that's as good as it's getting...

 

any tips on achieving a smooth light blue skin would be great.

Light blue with many thin layers of white (mostly linen), being careful to leave blue around the edges inthe shadows, then bright white as a high light.  See below:

      .."whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouse, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos gets such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then I account it high time"...to make some more Mushrooms....Ismail & I approach the problem differently
       
      A few days ago, the symptoms began to appear. Now I that the end in is in sight, I'll post what I have been up to.
      These Fellow already had their blanks made. SO it was just a matter of adding beads & green stuffing :

       

       
      ...
      ...that wasn't enough to snap the black mood; three larger ones were needed. First the Blanks:

       
      ...then the eyes (beads), & arms...somewhat more eye & arms then usual:

       

       

       

       
      ...the marvels of Mushroom dentistry:

       

       

       
      ...Stage I Green Stuffing:

       

       
      ...with Leo "Legs-don't-fail-me-now" Sizechek for a size check:

       

       
      ...AND Stage II Green Stuffing, capping of the sculpts:

       

       
      .
       
      ...once I figure how they will be used, they will be painted...stay tuned.

      One of the Fellow from the Lead Adventure Forum gave me a link to Bog's Miniatures on FaceBook. Their ambulatory Mushrooms were so like my stationary ones that I had to give them a try.
      This is the result:
       
      Emerging from the depths of Heep's Caverns, The Meandering Mushroom Mob:


      The Lantern:

       
      The Wizard:

       
      The Flunky:

       
      ANDThe Muscle:

       

       
       
      ...Than Gang with a shot of the setting at Heep's:

       

       

       

       
       
      ...they may not see any games, but the boards are splendid puppet stages for photos.
      The Fellow seen exercising the better part of valor is a plastic miniature that is part of G.W's plastic Giant boxed kit. He is my surrogate for Sir Forscale.
      From the bottom of his shoes to the top of his hat, he is 32 mm. I feel he shows the proper appreciation of the situation my World offers.

      SO I had these two twigs mounted & primed for ages...well awhile at any rate. Since I did up a Tree with Attitude for a Fellow D.M. Craft Forumite, I thought I'd give the twigs the treatment:
      Seen here on my Work Table, a once around The Trees:

       

       

       

       
      ...now to the closeups:

       
      ...the Hermit (Dark Hold Minion), all 10 mm of him:

       

       

       

       
      ...AND a couple of photos by the Witches' Shanty Town:

       

       

       

       

       
      The Twins will probably be used as foreground pieces in a Spooky Woodland photo background thingy I'm planning. Hopefully, you'll be seeing more of the Lads/Whatever.

      I got back to my Bones figures from the Kickstarter. The wolf familiar looks more like a dog to me. So I painted him to look like my wife's dog.

      The combination of Gnoblar & Night Goblin produces a miniature perfectly suited for the downtrodden life style. I usually give them names like Beastly Burden. In this instance, it was pointed out to me that the Little Sufferer had quit an attitude AND a Big Club to back it up. The theme from The Marat/Sade started playing through my head; ergo, he became Robespierre. 
      To showcase him, he is seen hear on his journey to Heep's Place, renowned for it's mushroom distilled beverage, caverns, & bat poop farm...it's like a pilgrimage to the Jack Daniel's Distillery:

       
      ...I swear I heard something:

       
      ...from various angles:

       

       

       
      ...AND wandering off into the sunset:

       
      For those unfamiliar with it, this is Heep's Mushroom Distillery, Bar & Grill. & Bat Poop Caves:

       
      ...there you have it...so to speak.
