He looks delightfully creepy! 

 

I can understand your crown complaints. Maybe mix your metal paint with a beige or pale yellow and glaze it at the tips for highlighting to make it pop a bit more. The tentacles are good, but the tops of them could use a wee bit of white. 

 

On photo cropping, I'd leave a little space of background below your basr to center the whole piece more. 

 

Overall, I like your work a lot. This figure will strike fear in the hearts of adventurers everywhere. The seaweed theme really works wonderfully.

After an epic chase, our intrepid adventurers loose track of their foe, the Crimson Herald.  Arriving at a crossroad, the party comes face to face with their opponent, now dressed in green.

 

*** roll Nat 1 for perception check ***

 

Party:  ***Breathing heavily *** "Did you...see a guy...in red...pass by?"

 

Herald:  ***pointing in random direction *** "That way."

Very creepy. I think the green works with the bronze.

 

You might try to make the bronze look a bit grimier with more dark brown/black patina in the recesses, but I think he looks very nice as-is.

Little do they know, the Crimson Herald under that wrap is a rascally wabbit in disguise!!

 

Nice work! Love the writing in the book.

The Creepy Guy is SPLENDIDLY painted in a FINE array of colors. The staff is WONDERFULLY disturbing. VERY NICELY DONE!

Your creation is actually inspiring; i.e., it made me check to see if I actually had that miniature. Once I found it, I have a need to paint it. ...thanks.

I like the verdigris on the hat. I think the blue-green was a good choice. The highlights should be brighter on the top of his sleeves than at the bottom.

I am with Melefactus on this. IAm inspired by this paintjob to add him to my next Reaper order.

The crimson herlad, by Reaper. 

I tried a red/purplish clothe scheme first, but I wasn't happy with it, so I changed it to this dark seaweed green, I think it works good with the tentacles and bronze mask. Since It doesn't fit anymore the name Reaper give it, I like to call him Jelerak. 

I tried a freehand to illustrate the book, but I'm not precise enough so instead of the Lovecraftian arcane symbol I had in mind its just a pentagram wannabe. I'm not happy with the metallic mask, Metals are always an issue with me. And I think the tentacles could be better too. 

 

About the photo, I applied some of the advice received on my other post, until I find ways to use it all to a better extent. 

 

Any feedback will be fantastic. Thanks!

Great job.  I need to get around to painting this one soonish.

Thanks to all! 

You're right about the highlights... I will correct it. 

I don't know if I'd go and correct it, this is show off after all. I really like the figure. I'd just adjust on the next figure. That's just my personal philosophy, however, so do what you will. :)

I think the green was a great choice! He is awesome and the freehand is well done!
