  1. Love the slightly unimpressed look you gave him. The copper armour is well done, so are the scales.
  2. Some suggestions: Try to push the contrast a tad more. Could be via value, warm / cold colours or texture. I think the face and cloak would pop more if you add deeper shadows and lighter highlights. The OSL on the sword doesn't convince me, mostly because the light source is not bright enough and secondly because there is no cast light on the arm and body. You could glaze some of the blue on the arm and side of the miniature that would be illuminated by the sword and brighten the sword blade up a tad with white or a baby blue.
  3. Nice contrast between the red and blue gown. Extra points for Vecna.
  4. Neatly drybrushed and interesting colour choice for the face. Well done and shows that simple techniques deliver good results.
  5. This is very well done. Great blends via the airbrush (did you use at all brush by hand?) and great colour choices. The fleshy bit under eyes is really creepy and the tentacles add to this impression. Would be a great scheme for an Illithid, too. I would have preferred a more desaturated blue, but it nevertheless works for the membranes. Finally, the base is simple, yet evocative with the old ruins.
  6. I also think the base looks like a mossy stone in water. Works well for me. The head of the warhammer is convincign use of TMM and the face is the highlight of the mini. Subtle shading and highlighting, great expression. Some suggestions: Push the contrast even further, deeper shadows, lighter highlights. Or try warm / cold contrast or maybe textures. The leather boots are a great surface to paint heavily used leather with scratches and scuffs.
  7. Nice colour scheme and overall tidy paint job. Do you want some constructive criticism?
  8. Really like the blood effects and narrative basing. The skin is realy well done, I see a subtle texture that looks almost like hair. Really interesting take. What is your process to achieve the look?
  9. Cool cell shaded look. Given the slightly goofy nature of the miniature, the comicesque quality of the paint job really suits.
  10. Really like the expressive eyes. I presume the last picture shows more of the actual colours? The other pictures look a tad overexposed, so I thought the fur is grey, but it looks brown in the last one.
  11. Hi all, currently working on the Cloak Fiend. Funny, yet menacing fellow. The front is pretty much finished. I wanted to use magenta and turquoise for a while now, so this miniature offered a good opportunity to do so. I am going for a slightly more organic look, a bit like a manta ray. C&C welcome.
  12. As a fan of pure pigments I will check out the Thuvian Sun Orchid, thanks for the tip! Thanks a lot! Glad you like it. Much obliged. That was indeed my intention with the skin: subtle texture and colour variations that take up other elements of the mini. I think the logo on the pants could be enhanced, but really hard to get it right. I have a lok if I can get Folk Art in Germany. Thank you! Narrative is indeed always high on my list for such vignettes and the mutant conversion inspired by TMNT was also great fun. I imagine she just keeps a parking space free for Bebob.
  13. Thank you! I feel he would make some slippers out of her... Glad you like her! Thanks! I think I will convert a few more of the Avatars to Urban Mutants. I have the Avatar of Wisdom, too, and want to make him into a peddler of counterfeit and illegal goods. Much obliged! Actual glitter is a good idea. If I could find the right diametre one could build it up as a 3D texture. Also a good idea. Which pink is your go to? Thank you! I thought of painting a translucent effect, but decided against it. Too hard to wrap my head around it and too little time before the submission deadline.
  14. Finally I can reveal my entry for the 2. Quarterly Reaper Miniatures painting contest. I am very pleased with the results and even placed fourth. The competition was strong as per usual and very impressive freehands as well as glow effects made the top three stand out. Rhianna is based on Reaper Miniatures Avatar of Resilience. I changed quite a bit about the miniature to fit the urban fantasy theme: New weapons, including a scratch-build pump gun, pants, leather straps across the chest and more. I had lots of fun converting this mini and painting her was also a good, if challenging experience. Pink is not usually a colour I choose, but here it really works. I used Kimera Colours Magenta with a bit of The White as a base colour. That was crazy vibrant, so I desaturated it with some grey. For the shadows I mixed some Purple into the Magenta which really helped to make it pop. Finally, highlights were applied using a baby pink. I had trouble getting the right look for the Juicy logo, but ended up using metallics for it. Micro dots failed and had to be painted over again. The small labels and garbage were also a first. The labels are all freehands and distressed afterwards. The cigarettes are small styrene strips and the Pepsi can made from some aluminium foil. So a few questions to spark discussion: How do you go about sequin, glitter or fake 'crystals' on miniatures? What is your favourite recipe for pink?
  15. I really like the wings. Great purple tones and smooth blends.
  16. Both texture and flaoting rocks really add to the model. I also find the skin well done.
  17. The wood looks good. As a great 'years of spilled beer' look to it.
  18. Thanks! I would say my best work yet. High praise! Thank you. It was less straightforward than it looks. Lots of trial and error. I will feature a longer how-to on my blog. The firefly is attached to some nylon string that partly disappears in the foliage. I removed a few light reflections of the string in Affinity Photo to sell the illusion even more. Thank you! Really happy that the piece is so well received!
  19. Thank you @Glitterwolf Much appreciated. Thank you @Iridil. The OSL made my brain melt in some areas, but the frontal perspective - the most important one I would argue - worked out fine. In the future I would try to make the night areas a tad darker or emphasise the moonlight more. As it stands it looks ok and doesn't detract from the character in the cave, the true star of this vignette. The fireflies are something I will revisit in the future. I could see an entire scene where a central character is surrounded by fireflies illuminating her/him.
  20. Finally the spelunking diorama is finished (WIP thread). I am quite happy with the OSL, even though it was a struggle at times and obviously there is always room for improvement. The miniatures are two converted Bones Miniatures using Statuesque Miniatures heads and weapon swaps from the bitz box. The top level miniature was converted from 77049 Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger and the character in the cave from 77387 Lanell, Female Rogue. The base is entirely scratch built, only the fern is an awesome photo etch kit by Chichkovshop and the foliage by MiniNatur. The initial lighting sketch was applied by airbrush, using violet, orange and turquoise. I then went back in by brush and added more contrast with yellows, greens and blues. I don't think anyone tried to depict fireflies so far, at least to my knowledge. They are made of paper and Greenstuff. So, how do you like my second OSL attempt? What could I improve with the next one, which parts do you like best?
  21. Love the skintones adn eyes. I think the head to the right is the brain of the oprtation? The teddy bear is a great detail and well painted.
  22. Very nice freehand on the book and the yellow cloak and tentacles are well painted. Enough contrast, but still reading as a worn/weathered cloak.
  23. That is a nice oldschool, even goofy sculpt. I think you painted it well and I really like the orb.
