Awe... again that coppery bronze color is amazing. It fits perfectly over the dark leather.

She is a GORGEOUS creation...a BEAUTIFULLY expressive face is the highlight of some deft brushwork. Your color choices are WONDERFULVERY WELL DONE!

I really like your color scheme on her. She turned out wonderfully. Seems like you had better luck than I did on her face (mine is still WIP); you got hers very smooth. The eyes on mine are alright but not as smooth as yours. Tough to do with the cloak clogging up the area!

I'm not going to lie, painting her face was very tricky because of the hood. I painted the inside of the hood and lined the edge of the face in black so that I didn't have to poke too far in there with my brush.

The effect really works though. Looks completely intentional.

That's pretty awesome! How did you do the leather? I have this mini but haven't taken a shot at painting her yet

      So I was feeling a bit nostalgic, alongside of the affection I already hold for old school miniatures, so I've decided to begin "repainting" some old figures I'd done way back when, I'm going to say in 1983 or before/after. I graduated high school in 1986 and after that totally forgot about miniatures until maybe around 2004.
       
      Anyhow, I've repainted Frito the Thief, a Grenadier model I had when I was young.  With the new version, I did have to resculpt the nose because it was flattened by time.  My other issue was whether I wanted to keep the same color scheme or do something different.  Ultimately I stayed very similiarly with the clothing color scheme, but ended up changing the skin tone and hair color.  I kept an orange turban, but ended up muting the color a tad.  So here's the modern version:
       

       
      and now the original version, painted sometime in the eighties:
       

       
      and then a few side by side comparisons:
       

       
      So what do you think, any progress over the last thirty- odd years? I've got a bunch of these that  I think I'm going to do as time permits.  They really are some very fun miniatures to paint.  The proportions aren't perfect, but they really do have lots of personality!

      So I'm thinking I'm going to be repainting this old figure that I have another copy and here is my question. Should I repaint with the original paint scheme or should I do something totally different? No wrong or right answer, just looking for opinions.

      This is a heavy detailed bust from Legendarion.
       
      Meet Gebhuza the Hyena Warrior.
       
      In my mind he's an assassin / Bodyguard type, look at all those knives he's carrying besides his sword,
       
      I tried to make him into a Spotted Hyena.
       
      Hope you guys enjoy him.
       
      For those interested the WIP:

      Here is 77035, Deladrin, female assassin.
       

       

       

       
      And a close-up of the cloak.
       

       
      I wanted practice working with black.  I base coated it in Walnut Brown, then slowly highlighted up to a mixture of Walnut Brown and Blue Liner, and down to Pure Black in the deeps of the folds.  While it looks better in hand than it does in extreme close-up photos, you can hardly tell those highlights are there at all.  Is it too subtle?  I can't decide.
       
      The base is from Micro Arts Studio.
       
      EDIT: Oh, and is just me, or does Werner Klocke tend to sculpt very small eyes?  I had a devil of a time with these, and I'm still not happy with them.  But they're hard to see under the lip of the hood anyway, so I finally just let it go.

      Another WIP for me to do this week. I've got Isla Darkstep, Reaper SKU #02698 which I'm painting up for my final D&D player. This one is going to be painted up to look like a drow. 
       
      Anyhow, getting started, I have a couple pics as I got it cleaned and prepped now. Again going with black primer first and then I'll wait until it dries and do some white primer dry-brushed over it to pick out details. I just placed her integral base on a 1 inch circle of wood that I like to use for my bases and then put some procreate around the edges and sculpted the stones to match what was on her base to the best of my limited sculpting ability.
