  1. I have been itching to do this mini since I saw it in the catalogue, and then my son sent it to me ! Now that I have done a Tom Meier miniature again, I have earned the pleasure of painting this one. I did a slight mod when I was assembling it. I did not like the right arm so low to the ground, looked like he was running, I raised the arm up so that he looks like he is fighting. I think it has a bit more tension in it. Here is "The Dragonkin Rogue" prior to priming or adding brown liner. Just a couple of views. Some of these details are VERY shallow, almost hints. I love the folds
  2. I was going to do some OSL on this guy, but since I've only tried that maybe once before.. he came out too nice to risk trying it.
  3. Here 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.
  4. Ever 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
  5. This has been a learning mini. First it is SMALL. 25mm tall, 25mm long. There is no gluing to be done, but that mean its really tight to get into and around. Basing will also be a challenge, since it is the size of your 25mm base also. I removed the broccoli base it came with, and pinned it. Its a lot of fun to paint, and that face and needle/spiked fur of his is quite the challenge. So here is the Bard reclining in a meadow of rocks and flowers singing to himself.. "Prickly Love" which he is composing for himself. Note the bottle of wine, and I have NO idea what is in his little oran
  6. Ok, so I had to move this one to the front of my desk even though I'm working on too many other things right now. This is Dark Sword's new bust: Portrait of a Young Tiefling based on the T. Diterlizzi painting, sculpted by T. Meier. I loves it!! So, I recently took a class on painting realistic skin, and I thought I could use the practice. I grabbed a photo online of Mila Kunis to use as my model, because I wanted to do a bronzed skin. My theory here is to use a red- yellow skin. I'll contrast that with green. I'll also incorporate cream, black and gold. Overall, I'll keep th
  7. Thanks to the onslaught of bad weather on the East Coast yesterday and today I managed to get the time in to finish the Cat Warlock. This was one nice surprise to work on. Little surprises all along the way. I especially enjoyed the chance to try my hand at some OSL from the torch on the cats face and body. Working the color scale using a color wheel also contributed to the sense of adventure and conquest. Please let me know how you like the Grumpy cat Warlock. Your input means a great deal to me. Here are a magilla of photos. Jay
  8. I 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 !
  9. This is Dark Sword Miniatures Harbinger, Female Angel (SKU 7605) that I got as part of the Dark Sword Stephanie Law Kickstarter. A beautiful figure, sculped by Patrick Keith.
  10. I have been painting this over in the Show-Off Forum for the past two weeks. Here is my Mouse Warrior completed. If you want to see how I got to this stage of the miniature, check out the Mouse Warrior WIP by clicking my name tab below the title. I can honestly say that this was a total delight to paint, So many options, and some real challenges in there. All that fur and really fine details added to my enjoyment. I especially enjoy the decision making process of what can I do with this. So here he is. You comments/Criticism is always solicited, and greatly appreciated. Let me
  11. Yeap, I painted another Frog. ROFL. A few words about the Frog Minstrel, Roll up your sleeves when you go to do this one. This is a really tough frog to work on. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started this. I thought it would be straight on... NOPE it isn't. The choices are phenominal. Little fiddley bits show up in the dangest, most difficult of places. At one point I found it Boring ! How can a frog be boring. So I resolved that thinking of our good friend Malefactus. So Here is the Frog Minstrel on a lily Pad, with his two Conger Eels playing a bagpipe, and a horn
  12. For 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/
  13. I've decided to do another WIP after not doing so for quite some time. My son gave me this mini and my friends want to see it painted, and based. I have gotten into basing thanks to many on the Forums, and so that is part of what I am up to. I'm planning on using bark in the basing on this right off the git go. Secondly, I started clipping off the broccoli base that DSM come with. I've had to modify some of my methods, and a bit of how I do things. I still mix my own colors, I use brush on primer (gray), and now I take my time, and really water down the colors. I just get richer and bet
  14. I have sworn to make this guy my next Shadowrun character. everything about him screams fun, from the cheap cigar to the naguahide boots and skirt, to the hat with a snack. I had initially tried leopard spots on the fur chest piece but it just wouldn't come out right. I did like all the color and the blue stripe in the hair. Here is a troll who dresses as he wants does what he wants and no one is going to tell him he's wrong!
  15. NOM 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
  16. This has been a whole lot of firsts for me ! Everything about this mini has been a challenge, including the weather. I have never attempted to sculpt a tree before ! Here is Ari Sparrow, Female Cat Pirate - The Scourge of the Seven Seas. She is well equipped to scratch your eyes out; but the other things she can do are worse ! Here she is on her treasure island, standing next to her loot ! Be careful, She Does Not Share ! Hope you enjoy her, and please leave me a note. Your C/C are greatly appreciated. Jay
  17. Autumn Hope It was a wondrous and crisp fall morning, the Lady Moray stood in the small clearing near one of the few trees that still had it's autumn foliage. She strummed her harp and her beautiful voice filled the air. Soon, the denizens of the forest were drawn in by the melody, a mother fox and her cubs made themselves comfortable and listened with rapt attention. A bluebird wheeled in the sky above and when she was finished alighted upon her outstretched hand. This was Fall, this was the glorious Autumn Hope! -----------------------------------------------------------------------
  18. Its 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.
  19. Otty the Otter Cleric found the Holy Fish Relic.
  20. Here is my interpretation of the Dwarven Fighter with Great Axe from Dark Sword Miniatures I absolutely adore painting these things. This one was an awful lot of fun and challenge. As always, your C/C are requested, and desired. Let me know what you think of what I have done with this guy. *********************** After days of walking Frerin Redbeard's grip around his Father's great axe tightened. Whoever knocked down the family's red hued Rune Stone would not live to see another day !
  21. I finished the Barbarian today (almost sad to see him mounted on his plinth). This is a magnificent sculpt! Challenging, but totally rewarding. Your color choices really provide you with an endless decision making, and challenging process. The miniature is also so dynamic that is it fun. It even convinced me to use "Green Stuff" for the first time ! As always; your comments, criticism are welcome, appreciated, and sought after. Leave me a note: Here is my concept of the Male Barbarian With Hammer:
  22. I picked this guy up from Dark Sword Miniatures. Big fan of their Critter Kingdom stuff.
  23. I started prepping this piece last week. I wanted something having to deal with fur (not that comfortable with it yet). So I decided that I would work on this one. Looks simple, (it is FAR from that). The undulations and the details of this sculpt are very very complex. I am just now laying in layers of color, and I haven't even started to build up the color that I want. I already have planned out the basing on this one, so I will probably do the base while I am painting. Love the dynamics on this mini ! Here is where I am at. C/C are always welcome !
  24. This Ogress has a motto: There is nothing wrong with being an Ogre, Just in dressing and looking Poorly ! Poor thing has broken one Mirror Already ! This was a lot of fun to do. As you can tell, I had a blast making her as outrageous as I possibly could. Its hard to paint a portrait on 1/4 by 1/4 inch oval !! Here is Venus d' Ogress and her Runt. C and C are always welcome, and solicited. Painting these mini's is a solitary endeavor, I really love hearing back from all of you. You aren't going to hurt my feelings with a negative, but you will make me jump on the chair with
  25. I was given this mini by a friend, and have decided it is time to get it painted. I have discovered what many of you have hinted at...PREP time takes longer the more experienced you are. I too roll my eyes at mold lines, mutter under my breath about slag, and flashings left on the mini ! She has been washed, and primed, and if I ever stop giggling, she will get painted. My thinking is "An Ogress that thinks she is Marilynn Monroe", That thought alone makes me laugh. Anywho; here is a photo of the lovely lady !
