Excellent! 

Your NMM is great, and I like your choice of teal for the cloth and leather bits, to complement his red-orange hair.
If you are looking for a next step (or two) to take, I suggest...

1) higher highlights on the leather and skin (and even a little glint of light in his eyes).  Leather and skin naturally have a smooth/oily surface that reflects light, at least when they are clean.  When I do NMM on figures, I have to step up the highlights on the other materials (leather, skin, hair, smooth stone, etc.) or they sometimes look dull by comparison.

2) subtle reflections of the surrounding colors in the NMM, such as the underside of the knee-plates or shield.  I add these after I've put the figure on its base, added grass or other scenery.

 

I look forward to seeing more of your work!

      This was a super fun fig to paint!  I'm not really happy with the eyes, and I think I might go back and add a black eye or a bruise at some point.  I think that would add some character, as well as cover up the mediocre job.  Otherwise, I am really happy with the rest of him.  Comments and critiques are welcome as always, thanks in advance!

      Here are the pictures of the Grudge all finished. While there were times that I hated how things looked, in the end I am extremely happy with how he turned out.

      Hey guys, I'm back with a second mini to show off.  My dad recently decided to join the campaign that I DM for my college friends, (he has never played a tabletop game before), and he decided to play a Duergar Death Cleric.  My LGS still had a few of the 25th Anniversary Dain Deepaxes, and it's the perfect mini for him.  Had a little trouble pinning the arms, but very happy overall.  Anyway, say hello to Ulfgar Fireforge, Cleric of Laduguer!
