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!

      Howdy,
       
        My Inspiration came from the "Paint Your Giant" Contest...

      I've only worked with resin a couple of times, and it's always a struggle to find a primer that will stick to it. I hope this guy holds up!
       
      Base is from secret weapon miniatures.

      Meet Pollux! And his pseudo-dragon Nestor! Privateer turned Merc, and part of the Red Cloaks. Also: plays with fire.
       
      89014: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus - BONES. Can you say 'fiddly bits'? This guy is packed to the gills with fiddly bits to paint. Yup, that much detail on a BONES miniature.
       
      Painted in Autumn palette with NMM, OSL, and Texture. Really dig this miniature and how much character that was packed into 28mm. Another Klocke sculpt! That guys is brililant. Or insane. Or insanely brilliant. Either way, I like it.

      Enjoy another rendition of 01608: Reaper 25th Anniversary - Diva the Blessed. Part of the Autumn palette series with NMM, Texture, and Effects. I know it's a great sculpt when I want to paint it again.
