  1. I looks great. I love how the light (highlights) is working with the cloak. You did a nice job of capturing the motion of the mini with your paint. I think a finished base may make you feel better about it.
  2. Sweet concept. Nice clean work. I feel like I need the Vorpral Sword from Alice in Wonderland just to look at it. I am not sure why Wonderland came to me while looking at this, but it did.
  3. I really like the bull orc concept. I like that they are less like a strong human with an ugly face and more animal-ish. The arms remind me of an Ape and the face is a hodge podge of animals. There were an old line of bullish style orcs I remember from the early to mid 80s that reminded me of the Trollocs from Wheel of Time.
  4. The LE line of plastic may be able to bring accessories at a cheaper cost than dwarves forge. Unpainted tables bookshelves etc in plastic would be sweet. I wouldn't buy them, but people who like that stuff when they game would eat up a lower cost option.
  5. Nice job of capturing the facial expression
  6. mold lines are a pain. I always seem to think I got them all or have them clean only to find out I was wrong after I have slung paint on the model.
  7. Smooth. I like the expression on his face, he seems surprised, but in a purposeful way. I love the colors, I do not see many pieces with the Middle Eastern influence. Very clean and a pleasure to look at.
  8. I found I have learned a lot about my work by taking photos, even bad ones. I seen details and flaws with the magnified pics that I can't see while painting. For some reason, once I see them in the photo it is easier to get my brush to work or repair issues even though I still cannot see them on the model I am painting. Are you planning n basing or are you just working on painting basics? thanks for sharing.
  9. You make it all look so easy because it all comes together so freaking well. What isn't to like.
  10. I like floquil primer, but each person has a favorite. I will boldly state I think there is not better matte sealer than Testors Dull coat. It takes the shine out and I find it is such fine particles that I can use it while painting. For instance, if I finish up all of the face and other skin on the mini Before I start on the clothing/armor etc, I may seal the mini with a light coat of testers dull coat. It creates a protective level for the work you have finished that will allow you to clean up a fresh (still wet) accidental brush stroke on a finished area without messing up the finished paint underneath. It is a dream in a can.
  11. stunning, inspiring and beautiful. Where is the red light coming from on her face, I see it on her leg armor as well, is it light reflecting off of the bow? I could look at this piece for hours.
  12. Yeah, it seems only one parent can write off child care expenses even with shared custody. Doesn't make sense to me. Sometimes fathers don't get a lot of love from the system.
  13. Hasselfree makes some great miniatures. I want something more innocent.
  14. Yellow is a hard one to start with. It is such a light and translucent color that you need several layers. All those layers make it hard to keep the lines consistent. On the other hand, if you put it on too thick, it looks gloppy and sloppy. Keep practicing, it is looking good.
  15. I love seeing all of the new painters posting their work. It is great to see new blood starting this hobby (or at least new blood posting pictures here). It looks like you have good brush control, your lines look crisp and clean, the eyes are well done and the eye brows are solid. I think in your next piece you should start playing more with washes. It looks like you used one on the cloak. Armor is a great place to learn washes, especial chain mail, it is very easy and makes the armor appear to have more depth. Thanks for sharing.
  16. I do my lining after my base work and before all of the highlighting. I am sure other painters do it in a different order. I also agree with the comment about thinning your paint. This is something you need to play with on your own and get a feel for how the paint works with your brushes and your technique. It should flow out of your brush not glob onto it. Keep sharing, it is amazing how quickly you can improve once you get a few techniques down. It is very hard to learn strictly from reading so don't be afraid to ask questions in the tip section or to post oils in the work in progress section.
  17. I like the little touch of the blue line on the bases. Are they purely artistic touches or used for facing? BTW, it is a tough looking unit. Nice work.
  18. Nice start. This reminds me so much of my work when i first started using washes. Many articles on washes say to use them liberally all of the area, but I have found that washes work best when carefully applied. On your next miniature try applying a dark brown (brown/black) wash on all of the defining lines on the miniature. By this i mean where his face his his hair, his arm his his sleeve, his cloak hits his tunic etc. It will create an outline effect that will help give specific definition to each part of the mini. You should carefully apply this so the wash goes to those spots you want it without pooling or covering areas you do not want it. Keep practicing and see if you can meet local painters to watch and share with. Thank you for sharing
  19. If anyone is interested, I just listed her up on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150766835330&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123#ht_500wt_1413
