  1. So, the ox on the right has been bathed by it's owner. :D
  2. I just painted over the original (a thin layer of flat grey to even out the colors, then just painted as normal). Not a ton of detail loss, even without stripping.
  3. Some necromancers. The rogue and the maiden... A repaint of a lizard-man. A paladin? (I was trying a new painting style). I don't want to show more, 'cause... Yeah, craft paints is pretty much all I use, so... that would be a LOT of images.
  4. Just a small update, he's now finished. My first time with "non-metallic metals", my first time with trying to make a "glow" effect with the sword (by casting off the armor, etc). Not bad... Not quite how I wanted it to turn out, but not bad either. Next time I try, I'll use a reference photo.
  5. This is a figure I painted the last couple of days... The "official painting" is how he came out of the box. The two photos on the right are of him after I got finished "fixing" him. I tried to keep him as close as I could to the original color theme, but I had to deviate a bit because I wanted the red on his tattoo, crest, and shield to "pop" a bit more - the bracelets (I felt) needed to be dulled down a bit, as I found them almost too distracting from.... well... his chest. He's a figure from one of those "d&d blind boxes" of figures. I was debating re-painting the other figures from the box as well.
  6. Um... I don't know how else to say this other than bluntly... I only own craft paints... I've only ever used them. When I buy more expensive "proper" paints (vallejo, citadel, etc) for mini-painting, I just get disappointed. Sooo.... Can I even enter in this contest? I feel like I'd be "cheating"... I do use specialties though - like effects (such as citadel's "blood for the blood god" - which always looks like wet blood) - but other than weird effects, yeah... It's all craft paints for me. If you intend to buy craft paints, I'd suggest Americana, it's the best company for it - it usually stays a good water/pigment ratio, and doesn't turn to cement after a few months. I also like that they are (almost always) non-watery, so I don't have to make a million coats.
  7. That's really cool - reminds me of one of those shiny beetles. :3
  8. They look great so far! What printer did you buy? What program did you use to do the 3D modeling? (or did you just buy the "sculpts"?) How easy is it to print? How long did it take (roughly) to print the beholder?
  9. I tested out trying to paint metal without using any metallic paints... The rest of the figure isn't started yet (not counting primed), but I thought I'd show his armor as it is. I'm not sure how I feel about it. The back of the armor looks okay, but the front looks horrible... Next time, I'll be sure to use a photo as reference (like the chrome on a Harley or something)... And maybe a reference photo of somebody who does non-metallic metals well... Or, at least better than myself... Which is probably everybody. XD I don't know what this figure is, or where it's from, I just know he is pewter... or lead... and made in ... I think he was stamped with "83" or "94", I don't remember which year. Just found him in my box of "stuff I have to paint" that's been sitting around for... forever. As I've already botched him (but not so badly I'm going to start over) - I'm going to try the same method in gold with his shield, and I'm also going to attempt to see if I can't get his sword to "glow"... He's going to just have to be my "testing" figure.
  10. I love the small details you have with the skin tones, the pinks and all that... it's... I'm going to have to try my hand at that some time.
  11. I love how you paint black, you wouldn't happen to have a tutorial or something of the sort, would you?
  12. I can't decide if I'm going to name them "Orca" or "Domino". I just finished with their base-coat. No shading or highlights as of yet. I decided with blue/grey as the mouth because of the blue-tongued skink. You can't see it in the picture below, but the center-head has two different colored eyes (one blue, one green).
