I'm a pretty new painter this guy is my 20th or so miniature and is the first one i'm willing to brave showing off. Any creative criticism is not only accepted but is greatly appreciated, I've seen the beautiful pieces that people have done on here and aspire to be half as good! This is also my first post to the forum so I apologize in advance if I've misplaced anything.

As the wolf said, welcome to the forums! Don't be shy and keep showing off your work! You'll find that its a really friendly and helpful bunch around here. Also, just a head's up, if something's written in purple, its meant as a joke.

 

As for this orc, he looks great! Keep up the good work and don't be afraid to try new things and show off the results. Sometimes showing off what went wrong can be even more helpful as you can get advice, tips, etc. from the really knowledgeable peeps here!

      Hello everyone! 
       
      I'm a totally novice painter. I got tired of staring longingly at all the painted minis online and then at all my plain boring unpainted minis and finally decided to give it a try. I'm working my way thru both LTPKs (and all the similar looking minis I have) and I have this issue with washes that I couldn't find an answer for in past topics (I could have just missed it, apologies if that is the case)
       
      I follow the directions in the LTPK, for example when painting Anirion the Wizard, I base coated his hands and face in the flesh tone and then it says to make a wash with 1 drop dark highlight and 3 drops water but when I used it, it left these little speckles on the flesh tone instead of just sinking into the crevices, like teeny granular blobs.
       
      Likewise, when I painted the Orc from LTPK1 (and 2 of his cousin's that I already happened to own) when I used the wash, it dried leaving dark splotches on the paint instead of just going in the nooks and crannies, like little water spots but darker. Especially around the base of the spikes on the armor and shield. 
       
      Am I not thinning the wash enough? I know for sure that I am letting the paint fully dry between layers because the first time I didn't let the basecoat dry all the way before adding the wash and boy was that a disaster. 
       
      I will edit to add pics later if needed, can't seem to get them off my phone right now.

      Here are two of the statues I finished for my Ruined Temple terrain piece. Bast spoilered so it'll be SFW as she's topless.
      I still need to put another coat of gloss over them, to protect them, but otherwise they're just waiting for the temple to fnish.

      Hi all and happy new year!
       
      Here are two figures I recently finished that Ral Partha has re-released, a ranger and a female fighter.  The ranger was sculpted by Jim Johnson and the fighter was Bob Olley.  Fun figures to paint, kind of bulky and a larger scale than the old Partha stuff I'm usually working on.
       

       
      and just for fun, I took a close up of the lady's face, because it always seems to happen that when a character has something raised over his head, the detail becomes smaller because your picture is so much higher:
       

       
      Anyhow, really enjoyed painting these figures, loads of fun, full of personality and a good hefty size.  And they're metal, which is another plus for me!

      Apparently my light box set up creates some specular reflections because these boys are not so shiny in normal lights.
      Anyhow, I really like these old school, Bob Olley ogres. I hope you do too.

      Orrrcs! 
       
      I got two reaper army packs of these bad boys, and they look awesome.  One pack, 06015, only had the two Sandra Garrity orcs and not the two Bob Olley ones.  Their fantastic customer service has already sorted this out for me, so a Bones orc of the same type is standing in as a stunt double to show the other one that comes in the pack while his compatriots travel by mail. 
       
      But these six funtime fellows are getting some paint, and I've been looking forward to this!
