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.
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 like to begin with. Jay
Well, I ended up buying a few pewter miniatures to test paints on before painting up a metal tree for a particular Bones dragon, just to make sure I don't accidentally screw it up. So here are my first two metal minis and I think they turned out well. This is the Hawkman, friend of mine suggested that I should paint him up like a raven and thought "Oh hey, that's a cool idea" then half way through I was like "WHY DO I KEEP FORGETTING HOW HARD BLACKS ARE TO PAINT". Though it was a learning experience that helped me practice a few things. I even added a tiny bit of silver to a separate plot of black paint for the beak so I could get that shiny look on it. Also getting the hang of painting capes and getting the nice lighting effect on them with lightly thinned down paints. This was the Opposum Druid that I had to get after seeing her. She normally has three kids, I might paint up the other two but for now I prefer her like this with her one kid swinging about on that staff. I based the colors off of a possum character off of a webcomic because I liked the comic and I'm not terribly creative when coming up with color schemes.
