Nice work on this figure.  I'very heard that for straightening swords use a clothespin.

Very nice, I like the muddy look on the bottom of the cloak.

The texture on the cloak and the armor looks really good!  Eyes that are difficult to access are the bane of most people's painting, and while there are lots of tutorials it can take a while to find one that works for you.  The Bette Davis Eyes method is a good place to start.  Keep practicing and you'll get it!  ^_^

Looking good for mini #6! 

 

As for eyes, it depends on the size of the eyes for me. Sometimes I use a Pigma Graphic Micron .005 pen, other times I'll use a brush with a really great point.

Only your 6th mini?!  Amazing!  I have been painting for a couple months now and I am not anywhere close to your level.

 

I have used a toothpick to paint eyes that seemed too small for a bush.  If the existing tips of the toothpick is to large you can sharpen it to get it nice and sharp.

Funny you should ask! I just took the plunge today and bought a bunch of basing materials. I'm about halfway done with his base now and it's turning out pretty good. I'm trying to decide on a color scheme for the ground. I think I'll go for something brown and muddy to tie into the bottom of the cloak. I'll post pictures here as soon as I'm done!

Very nice job. I love the cloak.

 

As for straightening: If it is a bones miniature cook up some water, stick the mini in and it should straighten out. Obivously you don't want to do that when you are done painting, though I guess with finish on it... but I wouldn't try it. For metal find a flat surface edge and put the weapon it, the mini to the side of it and flatten it.

      I finished this guy up on Friday; he's an old Ral Partha thief (if i remember correctly, he came in a 2 or 3 piece blister pack with some of his fellows; I'm pretty sure I've got them around here somewhere).
       
      My usual tabletop paintjob; I hope you like him.
       

       
       

       
      I'm still experimenting with my pictures; which version looks better?

      A mini I finished up last week while I was procrastinating finishing another mini (procrastination can be productive as long as you do something else that needs to be done other than what you are avoiding).
       
      Still need to base him; just need to find the right base for his Official Tre Manor StanceTM.

      I set off on this guy thinking it would have a woodsy color scheme.  I'm not really sure how I evolved into the assassin-esque colors, but I like how it turned out.
       
      Comments and critiques welcome.

      A pair of really fun Dwarfs to paint. The Ranger was particularly enjoyable.
       
      I think I need to try and paint dwarf hair something other than red. It always seems to be my go to colour when I paint them. I like that the red has a certain "pop" to it but it might be time to expand on my palette choices a little. Maybe next time...

      Hello,  
      I made this for my younger brothers birthday present. I run a game with him and his friends. His character isn't an orc so I glued a fabric mask on to hide the orcish face.  His character (Zanderluck) also lost his left hand and has a cursed gold handaxe that laughs when violent intent is sensed(also will eventually teleport back to him when he throws it or tries to hide it.  I spent about 18 hours on it including the base, handaxe and hook.  I wish I spent more time on the eyes and nose, that portion could use some more touch up.  Also I could have done the rocks on the mini the same color as the rocks I used for the base. The handaxe sadly doesn't have the best grip on the model even after super glue, any tips for adhering metal pieces together other than glue?   Aside from that I like critique and am trying to improve so please let me know what you think.
       
      (Let me know if the pictures are too detailed, had outside help take them)
