I'm watching you on Instagram too! Lol!

 

thanks! I've been practicing a bunch and taking online lessons with Liz Beckley and I feel like it's really paying off. 

Practicing- who knew that worked?!?!?

Thanks again!!!

 

i just worked on the cape and fur a bit. I used some clear purple from Reaper to even out my transitions and some clears and paint to start to get color on the paint. Cathy Wapple on FB and Instagram has been doing fun stuff with clear paints.

 

i need to vary the colors when I go back in to make them less matchy matchy

I really like this mini and I love what you're doing with her.

This does not look like a frost giant.

That being said, I am wicked interested to see where it goes. MOST inventive use of color, shading... this is a thing of beauty.

And more important, a vurra creative departure from what I would have expected. Go to it!

Maybe she's a frost giant necromancer? Definitely looks like she has a more interesting story than a normal frost giant from the monster manual. Could be a priestess for some evil god. Either way I'm loving this one. :wub:

Well the mini is called a "frost giant queen" and of someone searches for that particular model they can find it.

 

I am using primarily cool colors and more icy blues but other than that I don't go off a D&D manual or anything. Im just painting her to play with color combinations and what colors work well in shadows and highlights and using the same colors in multiple spots to tie the mini together.

Calling her done. I just wanted to play with colors so I went through her accessories pretty quickly.

Gorgeous. I'd have to say that you did exactly what you were going for, your experiment was a success.

      Here is my first completed mini. In all fairness to the poor barbarian, he has been a guinea pig. I used him to get my act together regarding a few techniques for other projects. Today I decided to bring him to to completion. All in all I'm just fine with how he turned out. Feels good to call something done.
      On another level, this little dude has sent me into a barbarian collecting frenzy. I have some cool figs waiting for paint now.

      This afternoon's experimenting. 

      I had originally intended to try and create a red-colored metallic by mixing or glazing, but had already laid a red basecoat and the technique I wanted to try started with a metallic basecoat, so I decided to just experiment with some other techniques I'd watched. I really admire some of the space marine/robot jobs folks do, but don't have any minis of that sort and thought some of what I'd seen would apply well to Ragnaros's really segmented-looking armor. I had a lot of fun with this guy, I might end up stripping him, or just buying a few more.

      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 : ) EDIT - front of dryad:  https://goo.gl/photos/1FRcQ5ZqZoqGt3dCA
       

       
      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 : )

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

    • By MelmothWanders
      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.
