Nicely done.

I really like your choice of colors, and some very VERY excellent layering in Red !

I should have this figure somewhere in metal mountain because I got all the S&S minis from IWM... but I don't recognize her so now I'm wondering if I missed one.  

 

Great job on her!

Red is one of those odd and colors to paint. It's just about the only color I don't highlight to white, usually just to yellow or a yellow/white combination.

Just went out to the Lost Mini WIki, she  is actually part of "Reflections of Myth", not the Silver and Steel boxes.

Y'know, usually I like wearing more when I handle my dragon. No matter how good of behavior he has on a given day, he ends up wiggling around and scratching me. 

 

She's a brave lass! I really like the red butt-cover. It does well for adding contrast to the figure.

Great job, she looks awesome!

 

@Cyradis she just got out of bed, applied make-up, put on a shirt when the Dragon Puppy began to cry for attention, quickly she stepped into her boots ad got into the garden to get him inside.

The neighbour had the time of his life..

Thanks very much, we need to cover her butt after all, so it should be with something attractive and color coordinated!

Very nice paint job on her!

The little dragon being green actually works pretty well, I think.

Thanks, that was the hardest color choice of the whole mini!

Excellent work! Figuring out color is often the hardest part for me too. I think the red came out very nicely and the makeup as well. Such tiny details on that model.

In the good old days when 25 mm actually meant something!

      I took the dragon challenge last year and chose this figure. Midway into the painting my vision changed entirely.  I still used the 3 chosen colors, but in a different way.  Very happy with how it came out.  Found the perfect base in my Bag of Crap, too. 
       

       

       
      Sorry, camera lighting is not good.  He is not so muddy looking in person.

      Another old mini that I painted at the same time as the Taer. Initially I just primed him white and called it good, but since I was painting the Taer, I figured he'd be a good one to paint along side them since he would have a similar color scheme. He was also equally a pain the %&^$#@ elf to photograph, didn't matter if I was using a neutral background or my dungeon tiles. he would inevitably be washed out and or blurry. while trying to experiment I got a decent picture of him on top of my trash can out side.
       

      This guy is very much based on his art in the Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume One. Drawn by one of my favorite D&D artists Tony Diterlizzi.
      Hmm blown up it's still a little blurry now. I don't get it, the S8 is supposed to have an awesome camera, but it seemed like I was getting better pictures with my wife's old Ipad. I really thought I had finally gotten a picture of him that actually worked. Might try and fix this later as well.

      I have been busy painting these past months, but I have not been taking pictures and posting much, and these guys are to blame for that.
       
      I started them up many many years ago, but never could come up with a good paint scheme. My Monstrous Manual didn't have any pictures let alone a decent description, and the older pictures were all line art or black & white. Finally earlier this year I took a look at them again and was able to find 3rd ed pictures and descriptions and while very different than the old school versions it at least gave me a starting point. I could have just done them up in any ld color and been happy, but no color scheme really stood out to me, so "traditional" it is. their fur ended up not being as white as I would have liked and it doesn't help that it's hard to tell if something is supposed to be furred or bare blue skin, but  Ithink it's more or less ok now.
       
      Now the reason I haven't posted was because for a while now I have just not been able to take miniature photos I'm at all happy with and these guys were the worst for it since they are mostly blue and white so it was hard to get a picture where their eyes (which I spent quite a bit of time on) even remotely stood out. Even now I'm not completely happy with the pictures, but like the minis I guess I just have to learn when it's just good enough.
       
      So without any further ado
      Taer

      This one got panted black with grey dry brushing for a while, but it just didn't seem like enough.

      This one was the worst to photograph as his rock kept casting shadows on his face. i like how the rock turned out at least.

      This one spent the last decade solid grey.
      I wish I could have done more to make the eyes stand out, but my hand is not very steady so it either works or it doesn't.

      The team together. Ready to fight off adventurers and keep them from invading their snowy mountaintop dungeon complex
      Really turned down the settings on this picture because even the previous pictures look too washed out now that I've got them cropped down.
       
      Comments? Critiques? Photography advice? Business ventures for for young Taer seeking promising careers with advancement opportunities?
       
      Edit: Gah! Blown up the first 3 photos  look even worse now. I may retake them and replace them at some point, if I can ever pin down whats going wrong. in the last photo I turned off the auto settings on my phone and set them manually, but it was all guess work since literally none of the buttons and symbols mean anything to me.
