This is great and wonderful job on the eyes! Really well done!

 

Agreed.  The eyes really sell it.  Great work.

 It was nice to finish something from Bones 3; it helps me justify Bones 4. ^_^

 

 

 

Lol. "Yeah, one of 200 Bones 3 minis painted. Honey, I am making progress on that last Kickstarter, so I am going to pledge for the next one before I run out of minis to paint". LOL I use that logic and I am painting the minis from Bones 1 still. 

 

The Foo dog looks awesome by the way.

Uncanny, it's almost like you were in the room when I had that conversation with the Mrs. :lol:

 

thanks for the feedback all. If I have the space I always try to put a little extra effort into the eyes. Many mistakes can be forgiven if the eyes make a good focal point. For the body, I was going for a style that could be interpreted as a statue or as being celestial, as needed. 

 

I used the bones 3 paints extensively for this mini. In particular, I really like the gold base and the green liner was everything i'd hoped it would be. It really works well for darklining yellows.

Gnaaar - That is MY line!

 

... but yes, I admit: I forgot to say it ...

But...Gnar is from league of legends :P

 

If studio Ghibli ever came out with a miniature line I'd be bankrupt immediately! That being said, hasslefree Miniatures have a mini that looks heavily based off of princess mononoke :D

Are you really asking me to actually answer such commentary? I am an individual full of infinite wisdom, not a gaming guide! The usage of old, long forgotten language is part of my library behaviour.

Well, I might assist in the purchase of suggested miniature line. But as Ghibli decided to completely restructure their company, it is unlikely we might see such miniature line come to life - though I have to admit: I once stumbled upon a Totoro-shaped clock when I was in Tokyo and also bought a clock that implemented Jiji the cat from Kikis Delivery Service. But that might be Off-topic and can be discussed another time.

 

 

Okay - I used some serious sounding language. I feel tired now.

      Lately I've been thinking I want to wrap up the Bones 1 core set. This assassin, which looked more ranger-ish to me, was near the top of the pile, and ready to go, so out she came. I glued her to a base, and then onto one of my cork holders. She was already brown lined, so I started with Muddy Olive for the cloak, and Warrior Flesh for the face. Worked a bit on the eyes with Viper Green, and then decided that the scarf was going to be in the color of autumnal leaves, so she'd be a little more interesting than just muted browns and greens. 

       
      And this was where I left off after the first evening.

      Well, at least he didn't end up on my shelf of shame.  Some days my eyes and hands just aren't up to the job.  I also learned today that blending metallics is really hard.  Much more practice is needed.  I am pleased with the way the lighting effect worked out, though.

      Hi Guys,
       
      Just a quick update from my Do-To List.  Pretty straight foward, light base coat, heavy wash, dry brush highlights.  Let me know what you think :)

      Here is the Sphinx from Bones 3. She was fun to paint with lots of little details. She has the prettiest face and since she is a little larger, there was lots of room to practice facial features.
       
      Hope my players are good at riddles!
       
      The color on the photos is a little "off" and everything appears a bit more yellow than it actually is. My batteries were dying in my camera so I was trying to hurry and didn't realize the color was slightly off.
       
      C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!

      Hi, I have decided to attempt to improve my painting ability by painting my way through h the reaper 3 core set. I will attempt to update weekly and am welcome to tips and critiques as the goal is to improve what I can do as I go.  
      this first batch includes 2 variations of lizard folk 77426 77154, a yeti 77436, a Giant Cobra 77321, and an elite Hobgoblin 77477. My first specific request for help is the use of unusual colors. I feel that I too often use mainly greys and browns, the lizard folk are a good example of one being a little more bland but realistic but the other allows for using colors I wouldn't be able to justify otherwise. I really struggle picking out colors for capes and armors as these end up looking either out of place or way to bland and boring. do you have any ways of choosing when to reach out with bright colors and when to be more reserved? I hope to use responses here to mold future paint jobs for next week. Thanks Guys CC welcome
