MOUSE BARD WITH LUTE DSM-8066
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI'll just say Yay it is great to be back. I thought that I would never get to paint again. Start, stop, Illness, has been a nasty pattern going on. I finally (knock knock) got the bugs knocked away. I thought he was finished weeks ago, I was wrong and finally I came to a conclusion after I redid his base. So he's done. Like the rock base he has on him, and the the little accent marks. Friends have been picking him up and asking where I got the patience from...I've just been laughing. So after a great deal of time, Here is the Mouse Bard. Let me know what your thought. Jay
DSM7980 - Friar Tuck The Toad
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI've been keeping myself busy by painting up Friar Tuck The Toad, while everyone was at Reapercon ! Welcome back. I really enjoy painting the Anthropomorphic lines, and I really wasn't too excited about doing this one at first. Fun looking, but I felt SOO limited by color selection. Once I started the priming something hit, and I found myself experimenting up and down the color spectrum. Dark browns, to chalk browns...those brown robes have a lot of color building up to the color it is now. I took the advice of Gadgetman and used a yellow instead of gold on the mantle around his brown cowl, and with some brown used to shadow them. When it came to highlights I thought...gotta go into the reds, so I was experimenting and going up a down the brown red spectrum. I am Really happy with the way he came out. I, honestly can't tell if he is reaching up to produce a massive BURP, or to break into an ARIA.. Which of course makes me giggle when I see him. His eyes were quite the challenge, and I decided to give him eyes that looked at you with one eye, and checked the background with the other. I loved highlighting and getting the facial skin correct, especially all those warts !! Has been a great learner, and experimental piece for me. Here he is: Your comments/critiques are requested and solicited. Hope you like him.
DSM1307 - HAWKMAN
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHere is my interpretation of the Hawkman from Dark Sword Miniatures. Fun is an understatement, delightful and challenging miniature. I totally enjoyed the basing, and the challenge of sculpting in Greenstuff, I hope you like what I have done. Comments and criticism are always sought out. Only way we learn is from experience and each other. Here is the Hawkman protecting his cliff side nest.
Jasonator posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingEver since I first saw this mini I have wanted to try my hand at painting it. AS usual, I will ignore what colors they have used in the original only view of the mini. I want something different, and I have a few ideas about how I want to base the Hawkman already. Just priming, and putting the coat of brown liner on it was a terrific intro into what can be done with this one. Love the folds (thinking rich shadows, and great highlights). That Hawks head.. hmmm... its a birds head to me, though at least a Raptor. This is going to be a fun bumpy ride.. Yee-Hah !!! Here is what he looks like to begin with. Jay
Jasonator posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI've been working on this guy for a week now. He's 25mm tall, that is the size of a U. S. quarter. Now, I'm going to point out how difficult this Hedgehog is to paint. It doesn't mean I am unhappy, its teaching me tones, its the growing pains I'm complaining about ! LOL This is one tough to wrestle with mini. I thought, okay, little brushes and we are off.. Yeah.. Dream on kid. This mini has wrestled with me for every layer of Paint or liner I have put on. Getting the angles correct to apply a coat of paint is SOOO frustrating ! I finally have gotten to the point where I'll let you see what I am doing. I have removed the base that it came with, its pinned. Getting the spikes to not look like fur was complicated. The face has a lot of personality. I've started on the base already. so, now that I spoke about him, here is the Hedgehog bard in the painting stage. I'm ignoring everything that was done on the dsm site showing how they painted him. Photos retaken. These are a bit better. Hard to focus on this small mini. Jay
Archer Grumpy Cat Warlock/DSM8078
Jasonator posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI have been working on this cat all week, having a blast. I'm not going to make this a "WORKING WIP", just figured I would post what I am doing when I get the chance. As usual, the anthropomorphic figures are highly entertaining. I continue pushing my envelope with each of these. This one has OSL going in on face, book, hand and left shoulder. Never thought I would be doing that actually. Fur on this one is quite the challenge ! Don't let that angelic little face fool you, he IS a warlock ! So here is what I have been working on !
DSM-7976 Guinea Pig Wizard
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingFor those that were following along with me in WIP as I painted and based this Mini, Thank You. I had forgotten how much fun it is to explain what it is, and why you are doing something. I set a goal to base the mini on a bark base (which is a LOT of fun to do). I was also doing a lot of experimenting. The Crystal, and using my color wheel to get Contrast, and also to use Triads, for colors. The challenge has been a delight for me. Hope you got an idea how I approach a mini when I am painting it, and basing it. Thank you for your comments and suggestions as I went along. Your C/C are always welcome and sought after ! Leave me a comment please. Here is the completed Guinea Pig Wizard. Here is the link to the Work In Progress Thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68089-guinea-pig-wizard-dsm7976/ Jay
"NOM" Cat Paladin - DSM8079
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingNOM The Russian Blue Cat Paladin stepped into the garden to commune with his god for a few minutes, with the hope that he might, in turn, be blessed with a mouse from on high ! Here he is standing quietly in the garden. Total delight to paint. I had to make him a Russian Blue Cat, I thought it would be a lot of fun to do, and it was. The more I messed around with this one, the more I enjoyed it. The flowers on the base were a hoot to do, I went into flower by flower and leaf by leaf mode as I got into it. Gave me the splash of color I was looking for. Your comments and Critiques are greatly appreciated and solicited. Please let me know what you think of my effort with Nom, The Russian Blue Paladin"...
Rabbit Mage with Staff - DSM8061
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingFinished this Miniature LATE last night. It was so much fun doing it, I couldn't put it down! Of course, that explains why I am dragging butt today ! I wanted to play around with colors, and decided I needed a white challenge, I sure got it ! This was a Christmas present so I wanted to get it finished to show the giver that I really appreciated the gift. I like the way the colors are bouncing off each other. Shadows were very interesting, especially as I rotated the miniature around. I based him standing in snow on a walnut colored base. That added some drama to him. Your comments and critiques are always welcome. Do leave me a note please. Here is the Rabbit Mage:
Frog Witch - DSM7921
Jasonator posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis miniature started out with a totally different color scheme and then took off on its own. She is far from the black robes that I originally thought she would have ! To say I had fun would be an understatement ! Your Comments and criticism are welcomed and greatly desired. Magda dropped down and landed at the agreed upon meet up point. She scanned the skies waiting for her friends to appear, and then to travel together to the witches gathering.
DSM7921 Frog Witch
Jasonator posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingIts the First day of Autumn, and Halloween is almost upon us. I have been very good about NOT painting another Froggy for quite some time now. My funny bone is in need of a tickly...SO.. Here is the Frog Witch NOT to be confunsed with a sandwitch however ! I intend to have a lot of fun painting her. I can see pink bloomers, purple socks, Brown Robes, and I'm going to just play with what type of frog she is color wise. The poison dart Frogs have a myriad of colors associated with them. So we shall see where I wander. Here is the Frog Witch Primed, and coated with brown liner. I went banana's removing mold lines, and I know I am going to find another one somewhere.
