  1. Nice job! I think the colors you chose did achieve the natural look.
  2. Ditto on the Barabrian! Also nice highlighting on the green armor.
  3. Excellent!!!! The sword actually looks like it is molten. I'm in awe!
  4. Thank you all for the encouraging words. It is nice to know that no matter what skill level you are at in your journey that encouragement and constructive criticism can be found at the Reaper forums. As a response to Jim, I too may never delve into the NMM technique as I am quite happy with using metallic paints. It may not be part of the new wave but I am capable of consistent results almost every time.
  5. This is one awesome paint job! I am partial to the purple colors and the NMM is fantastic! Can't wait to see the finished piece.
  6. Painting, always painting.

  7. I think you chose the right color for your NMM of gold for the armor. I can not speak with experience on this subject as I have never attempted NMM before so I may be way off base. On the other hand, if it were me, I would keep the base color for your gold. It looks like you are going for a dark color on the outer robe. If this is a correct observation, I would suggest an off white for the inner robe. You already have a nice base for this application imo. Anyway, I am fairly new to offering any advice as I usually paint off the cuff so to speak. I do hope to see more pic's of your WIP here. Thanks for sharing!
  8. I think you did achieve the look you were looking for. I can't wait to see the finished pic's. Off to a great start I would say.
  9. You know, sometimes I get "color block". I guess it is similar to writers block. (Which I am very familiar with as a musician). It tends to strike in the most inopportune times. I was not SURE of these choices at the beginning. As a matter of fact, I was about to scrap the mini and start over. However as time went by the colors started to blend better. I was really unhappy with the first several layers of the metal paint. It looked very flat and I had to think hard on what to do to get it to look REAL. I think the adding of the blue wash literally saved this mini from the scrap heap.
  10. Yeah I know. The bare base does detract from the mini. I intend to paint it sometime in the near future. More than likely a earth tone. Not sure what color exactly. Anyway, thank you for the kind words.
  11. Thank you for the encouraging words! I am just now trying to experiment with mixing different paints together. I am fairly new to this aspect of the hobby and quite frankly unsure of myself. I like your idea of making your own "triads" I think I will give this a try. I enjoy painting more of a armor based mini. When I was a kid I would spend hours building and painting WWII tanks and airplanes. I guess that has always influenced my painting style as well.
  12. I also agree with all of the above. I think the painted wood grain looks fine as well. I could not have done a better job at it. I also like the leather. Looks pretty realistic. Awesome job!
  13. OK. Completed to the best of my ability at this time. I brought up all of the highlights to the armor as well as the cloak. As usual, I had difficulties getting the eyes. I'm sure it will come with practice. I added an Asurmen Blue wash to the armor, shield and ax and believe it gave the metal a unique look. I also added an ever so slight amount of Sparkling Amethyst to the highlights to the cloak. Please give it a look over and comment / offer advice......(Sorry for the blurred pics....) Thanks!
  14. Thanks for the kind words. I intend to bring up the highlights for sure. I will post the finished shots when I am complete.
  15. I believe this is a spectacular job for returning to the game after so long. I have been painting seriously for about 5 years straight and still can not get a face or eyes to look as good as yours! Fine job indeed! Keep them comin'.
