The Dungeon of the Mad Mage board game came with three of these shadow minis. I struggled to find ANYTHING interesting to do with the paint job. By definition, I feel like a shadow wouldn't have highlights or anything (I actually did end up adding some very subtle highlights out of habit...they help bring out some of the sculpt's details somewhat). I also gave them a glossier finish. I'm not sure why...it just seemed appropriate. The main thing I like about this mini's design is the way it allows you to (kind of) place another medium-sized mini on the base and be "stalked" by the shadow (as shown below). It's a neat little feature. I know that they did at least one more of these guys in a different pose (maybe more...I can't remember). I may pick it up at some point for the sake of variety.
Hi all! With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth. A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another. I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart. More Below the Spoiler: It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between. I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time. I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago. My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting. Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures. My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details. I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings. And these guys will be looking forward as well. And backwards. And sideways. Always watching. How have you improved this year?
