    Learn To Paint Kit 2 - Wizard, Thief, Pirate

    Great job! I really learned a lot when I used the LTPK too.
  2. I bought the Learn to Paint Kit 2 some months back and I finally got to paint the 3 minis. I learned a lot from the techniques in the kit and overall I am happy with the results. Group Shot Anirion Ingrid Hajad C&C welcome!

    92785 Devil grasshopper

    Yup, it is an Ice Devil. Also known as a Gelugon (in D&D) from Caina, the 8th layer of the Nine Hells. Nice work! The eyes are great!

    77157: Griffon

    My take on the Bones Griffin. I was trying to paint it like a half Osprey, half spotted white Lion. C&C are welcome as always
  5. Irfanview is a great little free photo tool. You can resize, crop, and manipulate photos easily. http://www.irfanview.com/

    77161: Ghost King

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I am still trying to get my highlighting to look better. For the cloak, is the highlight too light or too thick? I did try drybrushing the helmet, but it did not take as well as it did on the armor.

    Draxism's Lots of Bones

    Hi All! My girlfriend and I have been quite busy with old and new Bones figures. Take a look and feel free to leave any C&C. Nightmare Unicorn (Silverhorn Bones) painted by my girlfriend Bugbear warrior. I tried for a realistic blood splatter on his mace. Minotaur painted by my girlfriend. Flesh Golem Familiars painted by my girlfriend Clay Golem. I like the way the eyes came out. Stone Golem Strumpet painted by my girlfriend. Ghast. He looks very happy to eat you. Pirate chick (Mariel Twinspar) painted by my girlfiend Snakeman Warrior painted by my girlfriend. Rosie (Chronotechnician) painted by my girlfriend. She will be used for her PC (a scoundrel) in our upcoming Star Wars Saga game.

    Draxism's Lots of Bones

    The new year brings more bones to the table. Great Worm. Unfortunately the picture does not show off the highlights and lowlights in the paint job. Also this is my first real attempt at using washes and dry brushing in combination. The wash made the worm much darker than I wanted however. Any suggestions on not slaying the colors with the wash? I used a black ink wash over light purple base coat. Hell Hound. Another wash and dry brush attempt. I definitely like the way he came out however. Black ink wash over a dark red base coat. Tiik Champions. Done by my girlfriend. They started out a completely different color. They each have different warpaint. Tiik Warrior. Done by my girlfriend. This was their second paint job. Creature of Blood Reef. Done by my girlfriend. Sea Lion. Done by my girlfriend. The mouth on this guy gave her a hard time. Animal Companions I. Done by my girlfriend. Werewolf. Done by my girlfriend. The wash and highlight on this is quite nice in my opinion. Zombies. I was experimenting with washing and dry brushing with these. Bourbon Street Sophie. Done by my girlfriend. She was quite pleased with the way everything came out, particularly the roses and the stockings. Suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. It is most appreciated. We use a combination of Reaper paints and craft paints. The craft paints are generally used only for base coats or specific colors. I do not always dilute my paint. That is something I need to get into the habit of doing. We do use brushes that are for painting models and miniatures. I have been trying to get more contrasts like with the mummy. I used a black wash on him and then went back and dry brushed the bandages to bring them out more. We use multiple coats of paint when painting. We use 3 lamps with natural light incandescent bulbs where we paint. I agree that we need more contrast on the minis. I will have a look at the videos on Youtube for washing and dry brushing.

I especially would like feedback on the Owlbear if anyone is willing :)

    Some more minis to brighten your day! These three were done by my lovely and talented girlfriend: Kagunk, Ogre Chieftain Nor'Okk, Ettin Damiel, Iconic Alchemist These 3 were done by me. I am particularly happy with the Well. Well of Chaos (I like how the shadows came out as well as the runes on the back) Silverhorn, Unicorn (A rainbow unicorn, nuff said.) Young Fire Dragon (Done as a young green dragon, obviously) I tried to do more with shading, washing, and drybrushing on the dragon and well. As always, C&C welcome.
