    Bone 4 Enora, Iconic Arcanist

    This is the Bone 4 version of Enora, Iconic Arcanist (60178) . A common issue with Bones figures is being "soft" on detail compared to their metal counter parts but I was impressed with this casting. I found it to be very well defined, even the fine chains and other small details. I really tried to focus on lighting and contrast. I imagined the light to be coming from the left front of the figure. I took a few photos of the base coated miniature with that lighting and used them as a guide. This really helped focus where my lights and darks should be.

    These are great. I'd welcome them on my tabletop any time.

    Ral Partha female rogue adventurer

    Very nice. I love your soft blending.
  8. This is the Bones version of Merrowyn Lightstar, Female Elf Paladin (03764) from the Bone 4 Core Set. NMM is de rigueur these days but I still like metallics for, well, metal. I used Vellejo Brass, Old Gold, Gold and Silver along with Seraphim Sepia ink and a variety of browns to build up the shadows and highlights. I sometimes go back and forth deciding a colour scheme but when I saw this figure I knew her armor had to be gold. The red and black was inspired by Gilgamesh from Fate/Stay Night (I saw a chibi toy version on Pinterest and thought "That's the look I want!").

    Willow GreenIvy from Bones KS

    Yet another figure from my wish list that came as part of the Reaper Bones 4 Kickstarter. This is the Bones version of Willow Greenivy, Witch (03682). I recently discovered the Bird with a Brush blog by the most excellent Rhonda Bender and the thought process and approaches discussed were a real eye opener for me. I actually took a variety of pictures under different light sources and picking my favourite, used it as a map for my lights and darks. I feel it made a huge difference for me. If you are interested in improving, do yourself a favour and bookmark that blog!

    HF Boudica, Destroyer of Romans

    Very nice. I like the muted palette with the splash of red hair and tartan.
  11. This is the Bones 4 version of Hakon, Iconic Skald (60182) that comes as part of the Pathfinder Iconics II stretch goal. This figure was on my wish list so I was really happy to see it in the Kickstarter. He reminds me of Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit (film).

    Muse Erato by Darksword Miniatures

    Thank you for the kind feedback. @Baldur8762: Yes initially I blended Cedolia Green and Druchii Violet inks wet on wet over a white basecoat. Later I punched the purple up with thin thin layers of pink mixed with Lahmian Medium.

    I Dream of Djinni (Bones 4 Fan Favorites)

    Great job. The sword switch is perfect. Your logic is sound plus it is more aesthetically pleasing, I think.

    Flower Power

    Great concept. I love the orc cringing away from the deluge of flowers.
