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!

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:

      I just tried something new, but have talked about it here and there, about using Greenstuff to sculpt stuff that you want to paint, but  before assembly....
       
      It seems to work!
       
      Can't seem to get it to quote across threads....

      SO, SisterMaryNapalm came across some Beastes to stick into flower pots:

       
      AND thought my Mushrooms would be just the thing to enliven his Mom's flower pots.
      Here's where they stood as of Tuesday:

       
      He wanted them to be somewhere between 10" to a foot. The BBQ skewers were just the thing:

       
      The stems & eyes were done by Tuesday evening:

       
      Losing a day to World Series Game 7, the green stuffing started earlier today:
       
       
      More later...later being a nebulous term.

      This is a fairly small Bones wolf from the Reaper set 77176: Familiars.  I'm not sure who sculpted the wolf, but it is tiny.
       
      Here is an unpainted size comparison.  The Bones wolf is second from the left, between a pewter Reaper wolf from the set 02830: Wolf Pack (3) and 03682: Willow Greenivy.  A couple of wargs, one from Thunderbolt Mountain and one from RAFM, complete the size comparisons.

       
      Anyhow, here is the little critter. It is so small it hasn't got separate legs; I painted black between them.

      Because why not. I am trying to work on small minis and this is the smallest I have.

      .."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.
