Really nice! I love your color scheme. The pop of color with the blonde hair is great.

you may be a second time poster but not a first time painter with those smooth blends and excellent color choices

 

This is excellent and I sincerely hope there will be a lot more!

 

Maybe even a WIP to share your methods with us!

Thank you for your kindness. :)

 

I am not a beginner to painting but I am a beginner to Reaper Miniatures. I am actually inspired by many of the painters here who are creating amazing works while pushing their abilities as painters. Plus you have such amazing talent behind the curtain that even I have been inspired to elevate my own practices.

 

I would enjoy sharing more with you all as this Forum has a great Community within it. If there is something you would like to see, please let me know. I hope to be an asset to this group.

 

I am currently working on the Frost Giant King and post WIPs on the Reaper Facebook page and at 1HourANight. (Also on Facebook.) If it is okay to cross-post I will post my work here. I am still getting used to the rules so let me know if I stray.

 

Thank you again for your warm welcome. :)

Gratitude! I am working on Color Theory and found an App called Color Wheel that assists in color choice. I recommend it!

Saw this of Facebook and I have to say that I love the hue that the hair has, and it matches the shade of blue beautifully.

 

And welcome to the forums as an official member! I hope you enjoy crazy; it's all we got here.::P::lol:

 

Gratitude! I strove for the hair and Amber jewels to frame face and bust to draw attention to where I want the viewer to look. I was looking at Derek Schubert's work in the Inspiration Gallery and work to get better myself.

 

I have been reading quite a bit before I got the courage to make myself known. I think you all are just the right amount of crazy and kind. 

 

It is like a large family. :D

The skin tones are amazing!  That face is perfect.

 

Gratitude! I appreciate your C&C.

 

The face is what I strive to bring focus too: it is the first place a viewer looks. The sculpt is epic and allowed me opportunity to really focus on her eyes and face.

 

With smooth skin she has an illusion of youth, where I could make her appear older if I accented eye mouth creases.

 

She reminded me of the Titans from WoW.

Great eyes.

 

Gratitude. That is one of the most difficult parts of Miniature Painting. I appreciate your insight. (I even researched how to do eye shadow.)

Amazing job! I especially like how the eyes came out

 

Gratitude! It makes the effort worthwhile. :D

      My thinking when painting this guy was that his scales would all be gemstones. When D&D dragons were conceived, I think it was a big mistake to have the good dragon be metals and the evil ones colors. The evil ones should have been named after gemstones: ruby, sapphire, emerald, onyx, and opal. So here is the ruby dragon, in his volcanic home. I hope you like it. 
       
      Thanks a ton to everyone in the WIP forum for advice and encouragement!

      I assume this figure is meant to be a gnome; he's very short for a human, and he's lacking the beard of a dwarf.
      I find painting yellows and oranges very difficult. They tend to be colours with very low opacity, and getting an even coverage requires several coats.

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.

      Hi all, I'm not sure if this has ever been discussed, but does anyone know if Reaper has ever discussed/considered making the Bones ground sculpts that support the miniature the perfect circumference to be flush for 1" or 2" or 3" for RPG bases? Even for just the smaller miniatures that would fit 1" or 2" bases and not the large-sized ones?
       
      It seems like there would be a big portion of the market that would love a miniature you don't have to do special basing for besides supergluing it to a base considering how great some of the sculpted ground looks already. Basing miniatures by removing the nice ground sculpts from Reaper or trying to figure out how to obscure/blend in the sculpted ground is one of my biggest pet peeves about this hobby and I feel like there must be others who feel the same.

      I picked this up to paint for my girlfriend as Lon reminds me of her dog Erebus. He was fun to paint, although looking at the photo I can see a lot of flash I missed. As Erebus is female I probably should have done Lon's trousers in pink or the same teal shade as Erebus's collar and leash.
