  1. Thank you for the kind words.
  2. The metal version of Aeris doesn't seem to have shown up around here much, so here's my effort with her. First attempt at a patterned cat, and I'm not entirely satisfied, but it works for gaming.
  3. This guy has a surprising amount of fine detail on him. For anyone else painting it, the light green spot on the back is actually frog. I wasn't sure about the foliage on his upper branches, but I definitely like it now that it's done.
  4. Calling this guy done. Played with the my field-expedient light box today, made a big difference.
  5. Had a painting detour, but now I'm back to this guy. I'm not sold on the gold metallic on the shield, I think it blends in too much. Might try silver.
  6. I upgraded (?) my picture taking rig, so maybe these will be better. I got sidetracked into painting minis for Deadzone for a couple weeks so I just got back to him.
  7. Thanks. I think I'm going to need to do a glaze to bring back some of the red tint, it has too much yellow on the scale, but overall I am happy with it. I just noticed last night that the cloak clasp is another oak leaf, so I need to decide if I'm going to paint it in color or metal.
  8. And the armor is about as done as I'm going to get it. Hopefully it all comes together and works in the end. If anyone is watching, thanks!
  9. Ok, so there I was, looking at a picture of a mini I'm painting when inspiration hit. I'm going to skip the long explanation of my thought process, would it be a valid and possibly time saving idea when painting a hand on a staff or spear to block the hand colors, use a fairly heavy wash or an ink to go around the hand, giving a wide line, then paint up to the line when doing the weapon? I typically paint the hand, then paint the weapon, then use an ink or a wash to create a break between them, but that sometimes requires touchup on one side or the other as I get the line too wide or uneven.
  10. I don't know how many people are watching this, but this was the next step. I shade coated the cloak, then used black wash on each scale to deepen the color. Then I completely messed up the leaf on the breastplate by trying to put leaf veins on it, and it's now being redone.
  11. Well here's my first 2 stages of test. I used the Red hair triad, plus some sun yellow for the final highlight
  12. So I've got this guy: https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/14581 I have a this strong urge to paint his armor in fall oak leaf colors. Has anyone tried this successfully?
  13. Ok, first off, I have to say, one of the most frustrating things about painting minis is you get to a point where you think “Not bad at all” then you take a picture and it looks like something a kindergartner troweled finger paint on and then rolled it in the sandbox. So I was trying the hair technique that I found in this Reaper Toolbox (Thanks Rhonda) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cZss1JHN2Y I thought I had it ok, then I looked at the pictures. So only look at it from about 5 feet away and squint a bit, and it will look better. Anyway I like the idea of the method, I'm not sure I have the execution down yet.
  14. Thank you. I used to do detail like that regularly, but after taking a break from painting for about 10 years, I was just too rusty to do it. It's starting to come back a bit.
