Nice!

 

Seeing your color picks, makes me want to paint this guy in green (ie a young Presto).

 

Nice work!

The kid and the color selection are wonderful! The precision on the eyes in fantastic! You can really see the blue and the reflection on the eyes. 

 

You asked for C&C, and I have some, but it truly is minor. The eyeliner could be either a lighter color, or thinner. I absolutely believe in darklining the eyes, and you did it splendidly. As a kid though, it might do better slightly more subtle. Like a medium dark brown instead of black. And the top of the hat could be highlighted a wee bit more, as it is the top of the figure, and it seems you overall have ambient sunlight as the goal for the lighting on it. 

 

Seriously though, well done. That kid is going to grow up to be a heck of a wizard!

He's adorable! I like that the book has writing. 

Yeah I wanted to be a bit more intricate.  But actual handwriting is only slightly better than that in the book.

Nice work!

Go for it!.  I'd like to see that.  Green was the second choice for me.

Thanks for the feed back.  I do really struggle with highlighting red, and your suggestion is a good one.  Ahh the eyes... I started off wanting a cartoon like feel.  But I see what you mean with the dark outlining, especially with little to none on the rest of the figure.

It looks amazing! I like the sharp transition between the green, gold and red.

The base is also stunning. The path way idea is effective and inspiring.

Metalchaos beat me to it and said pretty much everything I was going to say. I'll say it anyway! The colors are so vibrant, really great! The face is so expressive which is impressive in itself considering the size. I like the chibi-esque look you gave him. And the base is wonderful! I am totally going to steal the base idea for something!

Blue liner mixed with ghost white to create the grey.  Then I gradually added ghost white up to white as the highest.

      Well, we have my next installment in some townsfolk Adventuring Kids.  Cuthem the Barbarian with a ummmm.... follower of sorts, Spire.  The names were given by @SisterMaryNapalm in the WIP I have running for these little tykes. Spire was donated to the cause of this little scene by @malefactus.  Love the stuff he makes.

      "Who are you?"
      "Me? Ah - don't mind me. I am just an obscure bystander."
      "You are? You look like a big talking mushroom."
      "Yeah ... I mean ... what a nice axe you've got there. It's pretty sharp, isn't it?"
      "It is. You can chop a guy in half. That's not something you can do every day!"
      "Sounds like your favorite 80's action film."
      "What's that?"
      "Never mind. My name is Fungal Spire."
      "Barbaria Cutthem."

      Well I finished this guy over the weekend.  He's been a long time in the works.  Several short bursts with long breaks.  I finally decided that I just wanted to get him done.  So I told myself a lot while looking at it "good enough."

      Hello everyone,
       
       
       
      Once again I am starting a new project.
       
      To not disturb the continuation of the story, I put the remarks and so on into spoiler boxes.
       

       
       
       
       
      Thanks to @malefactusand @Silvervanefor supporting my idea and providing first feedback,
       
      Thanks to @Glitterwolfand @Cyradisfor further support
       
      And to @OneBoot, @buglips*the*goblin and @Chaoswolf for listening to my first attempt.
       
       
       
      Without further ado – let’s go!
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Chapter I
       
      The story of a village begins
      A girl heads out for adventure
       
       
      Once upon a time there was a village named Silvervane, founded on the edge of a rich silver deposit.
       
      Everyone thought that this small and obscure town would soon rise to glory and greatness. A place where to all of the Earth’s kindred would pilgrim. A center of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and creatures from all over the world.
       
      It was not long after this promising beginning, that the Imperial Academy of Land Surveillance measured the true size of the deposit and issued a report to the Imperial Throne, stating that the natural resource was of no significance for the great needs of the country.
       
      This country, as we will soon learn, was called Cyradis and its ruler, the Crimson Empress, decided the fate of Silvervane.
       
      The anticipated Great Silver Rush never happened and therefore Silvervane fell into the dark, bitter maw of oblivion.
       
      Soon, the village was of no importance anymore and its residents – all the people who didn’t want to leave or couldn’t go – had to adapt with their new situation. Being isolated by great forests to the west and the south, a deep and stormy sea to the east and high mountains to the north, they were trapped, an enclave of human life in the middle of nowhere.
       
      It was no easy existence for those left behind. Land had to be taken from the Malefactus, the Evil Forest that bore all kinds of creepy creatures; weird trees and plants, armies of strangely talking mushrooms and other unspeakably fantastic and eerie beings.
       
      To counter the dreads of nature, the villagers hired warriors. Fine and athletic men and women with adventurer bodies, not those puppets or models one would expect in such a situation. No bodybuilders or mannequins. They were real and they were spectacular.
       
      Some of them were dressed in weird clothes though. Chainmail bikinis for example. But that is a fact we can ignore here as the really important values of a human being are the inner ones.
       
      One of those fighters was Sana, a young barbarian woman from the high north, who was very fond of her inner values.
       
      She had a great heart, and as great hearts need a lot of space, her chest was quite ample, too.
       
      On top of that, her liver … well … let’s forget about her liver.
       
      Originally Sana was supposed to be the main character of this record but due to her constant drunkenness, unbelievably violent and rude behavior and the fact that all sorts of people complained about her rather simple clothing, the Imperial Academy of Written Tradition and Oral Lore had to reassess the situation.
       
      Therefore she will not be participating other than as a secondary character.
       
      But: Sana had a daughter. Only the great gods know how that happened, but it did – around twelve years before the beginning of this piece of history. From her early ages on, Barbaria seemed to be a very energetic child. There and back again, she roamed the lands, wandering through the forests and the grasslands, exploring mountains and battling aggressive waves at the sandy beaches of the Sea of Lethe.
       
      Yes. Barbaria was always on the road. Standing still and waiting was not her thing. She couldn’t just sit in the tavern and drink until she fell asleep roaring like a copulating dragon – something her mother had mastered long ago.
       
      And so the girl once again headed out, taking one of the axes of Al, the old woodcutter (a really big tool of destruction measuring almost her own height and weighting approximately seven pounds) and leaving Silvervane for the sake of catching a Glitterwolf.
       
      No one had ever seen such a creature or even heard of it, but Barbaria was certain: the white cat behind the workshop of Sáthach, the weapons manufacturer, had told her the truth when she described the wonderful and shimmering fur of this specific animal.
       
      Al asked her to stop. “She is an untrustworthy missy”, he warned the girl. But Barbaria felt she was on the right track.
       
      So she encouraged the faith of the old man: “I’ll get him”, and left with the big shiny axe on her shoulder. Her long, blond hair, the last of her to be seen before she disappeared into the woods.
       
      And what happened there will be told in the next chapter.

      Well, I finally have gotten around to starting up the Necromancer's from Zombicide: Black Plague.  I could have started with the core Necro, but I felt inspired to start with Grin.  Now I as I painted him up I had to constantly tell myself he's only for gaming.  But I think he has some character.  The game fiction has him being a Necromancer that failed at an attempt to bring out the dead, from a pesky adventurer.  So I decided to give him a similar complexion to my zombies.  Then I decided to attempt to give him some red lips to enhance his grin.  In the end for a table top mini I think he came out ok.
       

       
      Though After painting him up I noticed a few spots I'll touch up.  Then I though that he would have look cool painted up as a not-joker.  *Sigh*  Maybe someday I'll look to see if I can acquire another copy.  Thanks for any C&C you feel inspired to give.
