Very nice painting. Just a tad too dark for my taste but that could very well be our preference. Yet, I wuld like to suggest painting a little brighter, especially the highlights.. Thus your shades will be in much more contrast and the minis will "pop".. Do try it and you'll be amazed!

Yeah thanks for the suggestion @VolksFest I usually go too dark with my minis, with not enough contrast it's something I'm working on. I think partially it's that it feels safer to stay dark, I feel like the highlighting could easily look goofy if not done right. Also these were a pretty quick paint up, not super detailed. Mostly for tabletop for a commission. Do you mind having a look at my Shub Niggurath though, and critiquing it? I realize it's probably still a little dark, and lacking in color variation, but I did manage some decent highlights on it, I thought.

      Painted up these little guys. They are pretty funny. I might use them as creatures encountered in the Feywild.

      I plan on posting something a little more friendly looking very shortly. coughwyrmgeardragoncough but in the mean time I painted this for fun and practice!
       
      Also would take some advice on dealing with small details like a face. On this miniature it was nearly impossible to just paint specific details of the face without smooshing the entire face with paint. I'd wanted to give the figure blood red eyes. That didn't work out and I ended up painting over the face in white to start over again.
       
      I do overall like how this miniature turned out. The bones aren't crispy perfect white, the clothes look like a creature that's been walking through mud and dirt for a long time. Didn't know how to paint the base so I went with some of my extra black wash which worked out as it sort of made it look like it was standing on bone.
       
      Tried a new technique on the scythe. I did the base coat as filigree silver, then I did a paint of dragons blood red, then when that dried i went over it again with the black wash to give it this dried blood effect. A technique that is probably standard but one I personally just learned by experimenting!

      I took photos from start to finish on this project. The horror theme wasn't originally intended but sort of came to be when I noticed the dragons blood red!
