She is beautiful!  The blue highlighting makes it look like her dress is made of silk.

This is fantastic. Really well painted, and the colors are amazing. 

 

The only critique I can offer, and it's very minor, because I think this looks great, is possibly more contrast on the skin. It's possibly just the photo, but a little more on the shadows in a few areas maybe. Again, I think it looks super great, and that's just me nitpicking (because I always like people to give me feedback on how I can be better).

 

Keep up the awesomeness, and keep posting the pics.

Thank you! Her dress is pretty simple so lots of areas to practice shading and highlighting without being too fiddly. One of my favorite parts is her little belly. Haha!

You are absolutely right about the skin. I was having a hard time getting the shade color right and still having her appear to be pale skinned. It got to the point where I was afraid I was overworking it and afraid of having too many layers of paint and having her start looking blotchy. Not a nitpick at all! I appreciate the comments. It helps me know what things I am getting the hang of and what things I still need to work on! Thank you!

Thank you! I can't take all of the credit. I use Marsya's post as a guide and modify it a bit with the colors I have. I have used it for a couple figures now and it is very helpful.

You didn't overdo the highlights at all, she looks really, really great! The back of the skirt and the hair are the stand-outs.

I agree with Loim that the skin needs more contrast, especially next to the really great contrast that you got on the rest of the mini. I totally understand where you got tripped up though. Skin can be a total beast and easily overworked. It's a good thing to focus on practicing for anyone.

Wow! What a beauty! I think you did just the right thing with the highlights! Though she doesn't have all that much detail on her clothing, you managed to make her look amazing. I think with less highlights she may have looked a little more "boring". Fantastic painting :)

I tried giving her freckles, didn't like it so painted over it. I got a spot of blue ink on her cheek, and painted over it. I usually add a little sanguine base and a little blue to my shade color. It just didn't look right. The regular unmixed skin tone looked too orange. I lightened the mix with the blue and sanguine in it and used it to shade and it was "ok". Yeah, I agree that the skin needed more contrast but it just wasn't working. I have a "few" more minis I can practice skin on. Haha!

Wow, she is beautiful! The blue and purple color clothes is a very good choice, they contrast nicely with the gold. The hightlights on her dress and jewels, her hair, her eyes, the base as well are all very beautiful. She's definitively a noble mage. I think that the only thing tickling my eye was the piece of flock stuck to her dress. She's a cuty!

Thank you! The eyes....you are too kind. lol The right one...ugh! Of course I noticed the little sticky bit of flock as I was uploading the photos here. ::o: It tweezed right off so no dwarf mages were harmed in the flock removal! Haha!

      While not really themed, all these minis were left over from my other projects.  I think they'll all find a home in "Tesrora, the City That Can't Be Tamed", the fantasy ganglands campaign I'm working on for this year.


       
       
      Ametrine Earthlyte, Dwarf Alchemist.  A recent Reaper 25th Anniversary miniature.
       

       
      A rude Dwarf Thug.  I started on him to go with RPE's "Dwarf Veterans Warband" as a thug.

      Converted from the Avatars of War Berserkers, Mantic Dwarf Bear-thing riders, and an old Mordheim club.




      I realize I couldn't directly post most of the shots of the Orc Matron per forum rules, so linked to my FB shots instead.

      NSFW for mild nudity:

      Who doesn't love Halflings in Mittens?

      Wait, that's not the name of the set?  Why not?

      Alright, it turns out they're actually "The Winter Adventurers" from a recent Midlam Miniatures Kickstarter.  As always, Midlam delivers nice old-school designs with newer sculpting methods and details.  I think quite highly of the company.



      The Halflings in Mittens:


       
       

       
      Wizards and their apprentices:


       

       

       
      The Dwarfette:
       


      A human scout.  I tried to go with an Inuit look for her.


       
      Every party has that guy:

      Painted this guy up to act as our dwarven barbarian for some Adventurers League gaming at an upcoming con.
      Messing around with skin tones. I may go back and add some tattoos before I finish coating him with varnish (he's got one coat of gloss right now). Am not sure what to put on him, other than maybe the rune for anger.

      This was my second diorama for ReaperCon 2017 and was the one picked for judging. The idea for it actually began at last year's ReaperCon and was originally going to be the wizard catching the barbarian mousling breaking in. Over the year it evolved into a large scene than originally planned and I swapped out the barbarian for the two thieves/rogues. It ended up getting a gold medal and Mousling Honorable Mention.
       
      Any feedback would be appreciated.
       
      Here is the WIP thread: Stop Thief!
       
      Thank you to everyone who gave me feedback while creating this diorama.
