Really lovely, smooth blends. I think the greens could use just one highlight higher to make them pop. The NMM is lovely because your blends are nice, but it's most successful on the helmet and boots, a little less so on the other parts. I think the other parts need just one more sharp highlight to really sell the metal look. Lastly, while the spear tip looks good, because it's the only part that's blue, it draws attention away from the face. If you had something the same shade on the lower right side, it would balance it back out. Overall, I think it looks really great.

You are absolutely right about the green color, it would come out better with a yellowish highlight, so it will be done. I will also see what I can do to improve the armor highlight. It might be more challenging to re-balance the color since I don't want to add blue on the armor. Maybe the best solution would be to add something on the base. I need to think about it. A big thanks Guindyloo, I really glad you gave me you opinion.

I really like the armour as it's what I'm still aiming for.

He turned out fantastic! I love all the little touches of green and gold to add brightness to the dark armor. He looks like he means business! Your shading and highlights are gorgeous. I love his face! Wonderful job!

Thanks for you comments Rilkyn and Pochi it's really appreciated.

 

As suggested by Guindyloo, in an effort to improve the highlights, I re-worked the greens and the armor.

I also repainted its left eye and took better pictures. I realised the initial third picture was blurry. Here are the new pictures.

Beautiful job reworking the highlights! That's some shiny metal you've got there and the greens pop now. Awesome - you should be very proud of your work on this guy!

      He it is! Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals,
      DSM8036, Hamster Mage with Staff. It was sculpted by Dave Summers.
       
      This model was a little more challenging to paint. I'am very happy with the final result, I like how his red outfit and I'm glad I chose that color.
      I hope you like it too! Comments and critiques are very welcome.

      Incredible, that's the only way I can describe the experience of Painting this Miniature.
      Tom Meier is know for his skill, but he has this ability to put so much detail into the smallest of Mini's.
      This is NO exception.  Loved working on this mini (look out for the antlers..."SHARP".
      The Mini is also very small.
       
      I have experimented all over the place on this mini.  Colors were the basic Wash/primer/than Brown Liner.
      I then started mixing Nightmare black (which is really blue) and put on about seven coats, mixed vampire whites into pallet,
      Cavalry reds, washed, and anything I could mix in there.  I had my trusty color wheel out, and was just playing.
      Eventually he said "I'm done/cooked/finished.  So here he is.  I even used clear colors in this paint trip.
       
      Your comments are solicited, and very appreciated.
      Do let me know what you think.

      Here are some photos:  I Forgot to add the obligatory quarter when I paint anything by Tom Meier;
      gives you an idea how small he is !
