I really like to colors, shading on the horns, and highlights throughout.

 

I have mixed emotions on the eyes though.  They both look like eyes, and not like eyes at the same time.  It's weirding me out in a good sort of way because I can't figure it out.

Beautiful painting. 

I see the issue people are having with the eyes:  without an appreciable pupil, it is a little strange.

 

Cataracts or blindsight would explain it away, but it is what it is.

 

Have you thought of a more fantastic pupil option?  Hourglass perhaps?

 

Or is this beauty Done! Done?

The eyes are intended to be a bit unsettling and other worldly. Ysera is based on World of Warcraft Ysera that is known as the Dreamer. Her eyes are typically supposed to glow blue but I wanted to try something new with her eyes. Her full form:

I'd call her done until I practice sculpting her jewelry! The eyes I struggled with a lot because I wanted to do something different but still have her recognisable as Ysera. I may brighten or darken the contrast a bit more but ultimately, no other design changes would be applied.

 

I'm glad you all like her though! I'm definitely in love with this bust!

Fantastic!

The colors are beautiful and I also really like the way you did the eyes.

And this makes total sense.  I've noticed over course of the day that I've just kept staring at this.  So regardless of whether I'm weirded out or not, this is a great art.  I would love nothing more than to have someone so entranced by something I've painted.

I love it!

 

It almost looks like a painting instead of a mini.

Something in Aquarel.

      This is La Charra a wonderful bust from Creepytables Miniatures.
       


       
       
      I cleaned some mold lines.
      From the look of it the hat needs some work with putty, will attend to that later.
       
      I have decided the Skulls on the base will be sugarskulls.
      The snake is a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake.
      La Charra will get some facepaint in the Dia de Muertos style.
       
      I'm not sure about her hair yet.
      Blackish Blue?
      Greenish?
      Red/purple?
       
      Need to think about it, any suggestions welcome.
       
      I haven't decided about the patterns of her facepaint yet, there are a lot great ideas out there.
       
      Here are some inspirational pics.

      Burning Rose Kickstarter
      On 12th April we will be launching a Kickstarter to fund the creation of the Daughters of the Burning Rose, an entire new army of gothic medieval warrior women!
      The range is heavily inspired by historical armour and weaponry. Models will cover a range of fantasy, steampunk and gothic sci-fi styles, so you can use them in all kinds of game systems and settings.
      We are using Kickstarter because we have exciting ideas for a huge range of different infantry, character and larger models, and we need your support to help make them a reality.
       
      The Models
      The models will be 28mm heroic scale, designed to closely match similar plastic models from existing manufacturers. 
      Rank and file infantry will be modular and fully poseable with a range of options.
      All models will be made in hand cast resin, manufactured in our London studios using the same high-quality methods we have been perfecting since 2011. 
      We will be offering around 8-10 different models to start with, but have many more at various stages in the design process which we can unlock if we get enough funding.
       

       
      The Pledge levels
      There will not be any “early bird” pledges/special offers, so you won’t miss out if you are not able to join us for the launch. 
      You will be able to pledge any amount of money, and choose exactly the models from the collection you need to suit your game system, making a great saving against the retail price. 
      Shipping will be charged after the campaign ends, and you will be able to change and add to your pledge on the pledge manager website.
      We will have pledge levels at £1, £40, £100 and £250, which will give you access to a number of exclusive models and freebies depending on how much support we get.
       
       

       

       

       

       
       

       
      Not a company I've heard of before, but they do seem to have good reputation as a 3rd party supplier of Imperial Guard bits.
       
      There's a few more bits of concept art on their Facebook page.

      This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present:



      Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did.

       
       
      Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover...

      I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.

      Finished the fire dragon, painted using a red and gold theme. Used lots of metallic paints mixed in with matte paint, especially on its torso. Hope I got the right effect. Tell me what you guys think, would appreciate it.
      P.S.: I'm a bad photographer so don't mind the shadows and the bad lighting in the pics... If need be i'll take another batch of photos.
