spiritual_exorcist Posted July 7, 2005 Share Posted July 7, 2005 THe mini I painted for the exchange. I have to say it is probably the best thing I've ever painted, which is good, I find that every time I paint something it turns out better than the last so I feel like I am progressing. The Good: I'm quite happy with alot of things, the skin, the scroll (first freehand), the gemwork, especially the small ones (my first gems), the Rams Head on the staff, and the cloak (I would have like a little more contrast but it's alright as it is). The Bad: I can't say I care for the hair, nor much for alot of the clothing on him, it just doesn't work for me. I don't really like the base that much, my attempt at creating a bit of ruin inscribed rubble didn't really work, oh well. THe Ugly: God, there are things on him I hate, #1 is the blue ribbons on his bead and hair, just a crappy choice of colour. #2 is just about all of the fiddly little things, they were so difficult and they really didn't turn out well, especially the potions on his belt. All in all I'm pretty happy. As I told Qwyk he was painted with the intention of being a 2nd Margara model for his upcoming Dwarf amry, unfortunately half way through I discovered Margara was Unique. With that in mind I still think he would make a decent 2nd Ivar (with a bit of a druidic twist) I'm always looking to improve, so any comments, positive or negative are much appreciated.
