Whoa there. Mind your step. Watch out for mushrooms. It's Gnomevember and these little guys are out in full force. Anyway... this figure is Dablin by Spanish manufacturer MOMMiniaturas. Thoughts on the painting process under the pictures. At several points during the process, the paint somehow just refused to go on the figure (priming it in black was a mistake given how bright all the colors are), and that really knocked the wind out of me. The sculpt is pretty fun - I'm really happy to have him painted up - but I did struggle with "hard to reach" areas. Figuring out what colors to put where on that backpack was daunting. Other than that, the only thing that bothered me about the figure itself was just how many air bubbles there were and how I didn't spot a couple of them until after I'd put paint on. The feather on his hat was probably the most challenging part. I really wanted to go for more of a duck feather, but I could not get a good color so I ended up painting over it a few times and just going with this version. I'm also still figuring out the best way to photograph my minis. It's remarkable how a lot of the highlights aren't all that apparent when you get them on picture. Even while painting, I often felt like I had put on a color that was way too light - only for it to look really subdued once it dried. I think that's a good lesson to learn. I can definitely afford to go for more contrast in the future. Please, let me know what you think and paint some gnomes for Gnomevember!
