    Yeah, I'm terrible at blending as I'm always trying to find quicker ways to paint minis while making them look passable. That dark green shade wash seems like a good idea that I will try.

    I tried to go for old style viking colors which I had a hard time making off shades of red so I defaulted to my normal hunter outfit color scheme. Probably will go back and mess with the white fur a little more.

    Almost there.

    An update on the miniature for this Diorama. Still a bit to clean up on her.

    I've been away from the forums for a tad bit but I remember seeing this and was excited to see more progress. It looks great and I know how hard painting fire light source on another part can be. Great work!

    Those eyes are fantastic!

    Hello again! I'd like to show off one of my lanterns in progress. I make them as gifts for people and this one is special as it's for me so I'm kind of going crazy with it and trying different things. I'm not a great sculptor but I really wanted to get into it. The skull in front isn't me but everything else is. I need to touch up my yellow caterpillar and my snail but I'm enjoying it so far. Natural water scares me and I'm going to try once and for all get it right on this diorama. Finari, Crusader (54mm) will be the mini that I will be painting and attaching to this diorama.
  8. I wanted to try to improve my creative side for my diorama projects (I build diorama lanterns for friends and family as gifts) and I had an idea in mind that I wanted to practice on for myself. So I hastily put it together out of reaper bones and Hirsts molds I have and viola! If this was for a family member or friend, I easily would've gotten the metal version and taken my time on them and the diorama but it's for me and I enjoy it. It's also good reference now for me in the future. I said no to the light source shading cause I was just done.

    Take on the skeleton king?

    A small update.
  10. I decided to throw an idea together as I need practice building unique dioramas (I build lantern diorama as gifts for friends and family) so this is a practice diorama I made for myself. I don't put too much work into them (my personal dioramas), just enough to get the idea across and look good from a distance. I think it'll turn out nice. I also haven't sculpted stone floors in 2 years so I forget it took a quick minute to do. I also get to use up bone minis.

    I absolutely love the heated metal detail on the blade, that's a really nice touch.

    Superb all around! I really do enjoy that base.

    Hello again! Another quick paint I did due to this popping into my mind that I wanted kind of an ooze dragon. Like it crawled out of acid. I think I did an ok job and what I pictured in my mind. Some light and dark contrast pics and just a small touch up on the ooze when it dries.

    I needed a Celestial dragon for my DnD campaign so I used Kyphrixis for that interpretation.

    My very first!

    I like those halfling eyes. By far the hardest thing for me to paint are the eyes.
