I've added some aerial spirals around the elemental to create some movement.

Very cool. He looks like he's kicking up a bit of a sand/dirt storm. Is that the effect you were going for? Nice job!

That looks very, very good. I love the extra swirls of dust, and the dusty/sandy effect on the elemental itself works much better than the blue/white "clear sky" scheme I normally associate with air-elemental illustrations and the like.

Very cool. The additional spirals worked out very well. I like the colors chosen too.

Thanks everyone! Iím happy you like the aerial swirls. As you can see, the paint on the entire model is kind of sandy. This effect was obtained involuntarily when the primer came lumping out the can.

I like this - I can just imagine it sweeping over a sand dune and attacking a party of adventures lost in the desert. It's like something from 'The Mummy'.

Great job, the additions look great as well.

Wow, the gritty feel is totally real-looking. I like how your base picks up some of the tones within the mini itself. And I love the extra swirls!
