  1. I like the red streak in her hair. Your blending really is improving, great job! My one critique, and the photo may be the issue, is more difference between the black hair and the black shawl. True, in real life, hair can match a shawl, but on this scale it looks odd. With your color scheme, I don't have the slightest idea how to do it. :-) my two guesses are 1. tint the black of the shawl with red, as if the lining was poking through 2. add brighter highlights to the hair. Hair shines, cashmere shawls don't. I'm currently staring at my black cat trying to figure out what his 'highlight' is...I think it's a dark gray. However, this is a minor critique - a stretch goal. Overall, the figure is great. I wish I could get my blends as good...
  2. They're all great. Evil Duckie is awesome. I really like the yellow tool bot. You seemed to capture the industrial equipment yellow color - at least on my monitor.
  3. Either a greek key (http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/greekkey/keys.htm) or roman ivy hem or maybe a braid pattern to match the hair of the horse?
  4. She's absolutely lovely. The hair is amazing. I'm amused by your "so the paint job is nothing fancy" comment. :-)
  5. Yay! (Scroll to the bottom of http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?...t&p=552226)
  6. I know diddly about cameras, but: It's on both images, actually. If you look at the Y on the piece of paper, you can just see the shadow. Looks like a bit of lint/fuzz/hair. I don't know how to clean a camera lens properly, so I won't offer any advice for that. If it were me, I'd try blowing on the lens and seeing if that helps. I'm sure a photographer will have a fit because I suggested that.
  7. As some one else said, the blues are lovely. I like the hair too. Very nice.
  8. Really excellent. I'm impressed by the alternating green dots on the back, another nice subtle touch.
  9. Even better - a picture is worth a thousand words, etc.
  10. ooh, that sounds pretty! Thanks, I wouldn't have thought of that.
  11. I'm about to start painting 14093: Finari, Crusaders Hero for a friend for a game. I want to try doing "white" enameled armor, and most likely some of the fabric will be white as well. My theory is to have linen white be my midtone. If I want to show that one is metallic/enameled and one is cloth, any suggestions to shadows and/or techniques to emphasize the difference? Accents will be in a yellow or orange (i.e. Tibetan monks robes), if that affects color choices. Thanks!
  12. I went ahead with a watery base. http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?...st&p=551797 Apologies if I committed a faux pas, entirely unintentional.
  13. For a friend for his birthday...4 months ago. Just finished it. ooops. First attempt at a water base. Just used epoxy. Considering it's swampy, having bubbles isn't too terrible... I had asked some questions in the Works in Progress forum, apologies if I made a faux pas, I didn't mean to. Comments and critiques welcome. I know I need to learn patience to properly blend.
