  1. Depending on who you ask Stevie is either a lovable gnome with a penchant for aquirering things that don't belong to her because she wants them more, or a filthy little gnome who is obsessed with cheese and stealing. That's cheese she has too, not gold. She's my 6th mini and I painted her for a friend and I'm pretty unhappy with her. I think for a few reasons I was really rushing her (partly I wanted to enter her into the beauty pagent) and because I was painting at a friends house time was a bit limited. So far all of my minis has been "powdery" and I know I should use thinner paint layers and a wet pallet, I suspect using a bigger brush would also help. Obsidian Crane said "in trying to make her look dirty you've made her messy" or something to that effect. I totally agree but it's my own fault, he said I should google how to do it and I didn't. I think I like clean looking minis better anyway but my friend's character really is dirty and she wanted that look. I just hope she isn't disappointed.

She's my 6th mini and I painted her for a friend. I do need to do some work on her but until my paints arrive I'm still painting with friends and I won't have a chance to get back there before the competition ends.
  3. Thanks again for all the support and encouragement. Yeah it's my 5th but I feel obliged to say again I have an arts background and I've had Obsidian Crane sitting next to me giving me pointers a lot. My favourite is "more contrast":) My paint is still "powdery" and I'm going to make a wet pallet (one of these days) to try and help with that. Looking at the pics now I see that I might have missed a part of the blade so I'll probably fix that next time I go out to paint. Each mini I've done I've been trying to challenge different techniques which makes it fun for me. My next one is another gnome (Ingrid?) for one of the girls we play with. She got an Elven cloak from a hag so I'm looking for a good Elven pattern to free hand on her. I know I can just go with the Jackson plain Elven cloak but Ingrid's cloak is fairly flat so I think it's a good one to attempt. My friends character is an urchin who's obsessed with cheese so we decided the "gem" in her hand is going to be painted like cheese. :) Seriously? That's huge thanks. I put her over in the little people beauty pageant along with Pennies (Cassie gnome wizard) is it ok to put her in both?
  4. Ok so I just got done with my 5th mini and I still have super glue all over my finger tips. Originally I had grand plans to freehand a dwarf pattern on her cloak but gave up on that idea when I spent a whole night blending it and really liked it. Obsidian Crane talked me through the blade so the metal looks a lot better than my first few blades. As always any suggestions and pointers are very welcome.
  5. This is Frida my dwarf cleric and 5th minature. I haven't written her back story.
  6. Thanks everyone. Really? I guess I've been,playing D&D for a little over 2 months now and none of my characters have died yet. The way I'm going I'll be painting characters faster than I can play them.
  7. Thanks so much, I did her face first (I started doing this after I had so much trouble with the hooded rogue) and I sat there crooning over her while I painted the rest. I really enjoyed painting her, with my first three I thought of them as adventurers who would have a rugged look so I felt they needed to be a little "dirty" but I love the bright, clean look I got with a Pennies. I also approached her basically knowing what colours I wanted to use, with the exception of the hair which I originally painted pink (so glad I changed it). I can't wait to start my next one, I'm going to do Bailey Silverbell next and spent all last night looking for a colour scheme, pretty excited about mini Monday.
  8. Thanks so much for the encouragement. This was my first attempt at painting (my gnome was done after a month of painting). But I should confess I have an arts background (watercolours mostly) and I'm painting with a really experienced painter. For this one he put the paints I needed in front of me and guided me through it step by step. Some of you may have seen another Amiri painted as a half Orc and you might recognise the background I'm using.
  9. So this is Pennies a gnome bard ( I still need to finish her character sheet before I can play her) my fourth mini painted in my first month of painting, I finished her on Wednesday night and she's also over in the little people beauty pageant. I think she's my favourite so far. Again her photo is a bit blurry (I used my iPhone to do them just to get them posted, generally I'm quite impatient). Any advice or points are welcome.
  10. This is my third mini, Niente a wood elf druid. She has an amazing amount of detail which I was frustrated with by he time I decided she was finished. I did attempt OSL on the fairy fire which you can't really see in the photos. I'm going to paint a bear, a wolf, a big cat (not sure which one yet) and an eagle for her. I need to re photograph her because I added snow to the base and she's blurry. Any advice or points are welcome.
  11. This is my second mini Ester, she's the first D&D character I played with (am still playing with). She's a rogue (ed) so I wanted it to look like she was lit by moonlight and I found the face to be a nightmare particularly the eyes that are half obscured by the hood. I had so much trouble with this that I started to lose detail in the face so I've been working on trying to apply thinner layers. I do love the monochrome look and may attempt her again at a later date to get the face right. I know my photos are a little blurry, I may get that sorted at a later time. Any advice or points are welcome.
  12. Hi I'm new here. I started painting about a month ago at a painting group with a guy I play D&D with. I just wanted to paint a couple of table top minis for my characters (my friend thinks this is hilarious). Anyway this was my first effort Tea, she's a half Orc barbarian with daddy issues. I know my photos are a little blurry, I may get that sorted at a later time. Any advice or points are welcome.
  13. My fourth mini (I started painting about a month ago). This is Pennies a Gnome bard I'm creating for 5e D&D. The photos are a little blurry but I'm really happy with the way she turned out. Planning to submit a dwarf by the end of the month too.
