  1. What a delightfully flamboyant trio! Great work, as always. I particularly like the moustachioed gentleman's facial expression—you really nailed it.
  2. Thanks! You'll be pleased to know that I spent a lot of time looking at pictures of actual lions :D
  3. I previously posted a show-off thread for the male lion in this pair, but I wound up stripping him and repainting him after mistakenly ruining him when doing touch-ups/sealing. So here they both are! C&C welcome.
  4. Sadly, I went back and did some touch-ups and wound up ruining him, so into the simple green he went. I did a repaint and took a little longer this time (maybe 4 hours start to finish). Here are the results:
  5. 2, but choosing was really hard.
  6. Thanks! This is all extremely helpful. I just spent 5 minutes lightly drybrushing on a few different colours, and already he looks a lot more interesting.
  7. So I went back and added a bit more brown. Still not super happy with it, but I think it's a small improvement.
  8. On the one hand, I'm really pleased with this guy's face; I think it turned out really nicely. On the other hand, I'm at a loss as to what to do about the body. I basically just dry brushed it a few times and applied various coloured washes (brown, purple, blue) for depth and texture. It looks ok, but I'd like to improve as a painter. How do more advanced painters approach a fur covered mini? How do you paint something like this without resorting to a simple dry brush?
  9. Looks great! Huge improvement over the original. Did you strip it or just paint over the original paint job?
  10. Thanks! I have a limited number of paints at the moment, so I had to mix the base colour. It was a mix of Reaper's Ogre Skin, Goblin Skin, and a couple of different tans/creams from Army Painter. I did a light brown wash over that to pick out the texture in the fur and then kept adding more and more light cream to the base colour for progressively lighter dry brushes. I did a little supplementary shading with Goblin Skin and an Orangey-Brown from Army Painter, and some more highlights after that, but that's the gist of it.
  11. My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.
  12. The scales are great! How much of it is dry brushed vs. highlighted by hand?
  13. I don't have an exact count, but I'm somewhere north of 25 and south of 35 in total minis painted. I very much consider myself a beginner. The past month has been the most productive period of painting in my life. EDIT: Whereabouts in Ontario are you? I'm living in Hamilton at the moment.
