  1. The results definitely show the amount of work you put in. Phenomenal job!
  2. It is always sad when a marriage ends.
  3. Try going with a more pale glow from the mushroom. It matches the mushrooms color too closely and probably shouldnt extend so far. After all, it is a glow, not a shine, so it should be more faint.
  4. Im not really sure if it would mess it up after only a couple hours but honestly i wouldnt risk it on a mini i spent so much time and effort painting (twice). What i would do is slap a couple coats of paint on an unpainted minis cape or something and give it a test run there
  5. I havent checked in in a while but wow! She is looking beautiful! And that base! The glowing mushrooms would definitely be cool, but definitely unnecessary if you are looking to wrap up the project. I do think the log is colored a bit too brightly. It looks as if it is in daylight when the bottom of the mini is in dim light or darkness.
  6. Some undead requests Zombie / skeletal goblins Zombie / skeletal orcs Zombie / skeletal kobolds Skeletal/ zombie wolf pack Skeletal / zombie bear Bone golem Skeletal/Zombie horses More mummies Other: Dire rat (based closely to 4th edition art) Devourer
  7. Not sure if you guys noticed this but most of the new releases just added are showing image not found.
  8. Im not an osl expert but it seems to me the light would still touch on the edges of the lantern frame that touch the glass. I would hit those with some highlights and leave the rest. Assuming she is using the lantern because she is in a dark setting, there shouldnt be much to highlight the outer parts of the lantern.
  9. I admire that youre willing to put so much time in to make her perfect. i recently gave up on one that just wouldnt go my way and i use nowhere near the same microscopic level of detail you do. Edit: it was Seltyiel. Forget that guy.
  10. Your osl and blending look so good! I do agree regarding her left shoulder though. It should be hoghlighted but a bit less than what you have now. Though i honestly hadnt thought about it until you mentioned it, lol, so you could probably get away with it. I am very excited to paint this mini in bones black once bones V ships out
  11. Those minis are awesome. I followed. Any idea on pricing?
  12. An issue i had with tacky primer was when trying to strip it instead of rubbing Or brushing off the mini it seemed to run around. One thing that seems to work is ising my spray on acryllic sealer which seems to harden and dry the primer.
  13. For summary -Armored battle angels (large+ size, male and female) -Elven elk-riders -zombie horses (no riders) - Elven royal guards (currently in metal) - more polearm weilding humans and elves -balding inquisitive rogue First and foremost I would love to see some armored battle angels in large+ size. Not a lot of angels in reaoer as a whole amd most arent dressed for battle. Havimg these guys and gals would be awesome to paint. Zombie horses. No riders. This will allow people to use them for individual encounters or strap on a wagon, etc. Elven elk-riders. Would love to see some elves with their fancy weapons riding these majestic beasts. Thranduil from LOTR was an epic sight and im sure a squad of these riders would be just as epic. Balding inquisitive rogue. He has really become a popular request thanks to a certain personality in the kickstarter. More polearm wielding humans and elves. Not a ton of polearm weilders available in bones, especially males wearing armor but no helmet. But more varieties of polearm wielders would definitely be welcome as well. Lastly, I really want to see these royal guards turned into bones. https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/figurefinder+metal+elf/price/14550 https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/figurefinder+metal+elf/price/14438 https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/figurefinder+metal+elf/price/14557 https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/figurefinder+metal+elf/price/14439 Thank you!
  14. I never really liked the sculpt of this dragon. His head looks off to me. However, i love your color scheme and you have done a phenomenal job painting him. Love the detail in the scales and the wings. Good work!
  15. Very nice work. Really impressed with the work on the club especially.
  16. She is really coming along! I agree that the lips needed thinning, but i think you have landed on a pretty good thickness at this point. The eyes are fantastic. The highlights look good with the face and upper body. You definitely made the right choice when you decided to strip her and start over.
  17. Nethyrmaul looks phenomenal so far. Very nice work with the scales. One question though. What is the dragon in the big boxto the left of nethyrmaul? Yikes. Missed a lot of pages this morning. Everything so far looks fierce! Especially love the color scheme of the temple dragon.
  18. Very nice! Love the way the gold and the leather ties together. The cape is awesome. Nice work with the symbol! The skin and armor look great as well.
  19. Wow, I'm really impressed. I know patience is something im going to have to get better with, and im working on picking up some techniques to improve. You are very talented and I hope to someday be able to paint like this. Once again, very good job. <3
  20. Man yours looks really sharp! I couldnt even see the detail on the teeth on mine. Beautiful job with colors and shading, and i love the base. Hope to start doing my own someday.
  21. Thanks. Im gonna try to get over to hobby lobby soon and pick some up. If not theres always amazon i guess lol. Really appreciate it!
  22. They look great! Nice work on lighting, and i love the amount of detail in the hair and armor.
  23. Fantastic. Love the shadows and the dress sparkle. I dont think i could find a single flaw on this mini. How long would you say it takes you to paint something like this?
  24. Went through a bit of a struggle with this guy. Filled in the huge gaps around the shoulders with elmers glue. Painted him up, grey body, 9 colors of gems. Hated the way the gemstones looked so i got some advice from some great people in the help forum who were a huge help. Cut it down to 3 colors and tinted his skin green to go with the blue/yellow/green gems. Had to do a few layers of drybrushing between greens, greys, and black washes to get his body looking the way i wanted. The sealer added more of a shine than i wanted to the body so if anyone else has any spray sealer recommendations im definitely open to suggestion. Currently using patricia nimocks clear acrylic sealer matte. To shine up the gems more i also coated them in Tamiya Color acryllic paint mini clear X-22 after sealing. Anyway, im somewhat new so advice, comments, constructive criticism are always welcome.
