Here's my latest. I probably could have fuddled with her some more, but I really got tired of painting her and got to the abandonment point. I do see one spot that needs a touch more darklining, but I can hit that before she goes into the display case.

Let me know what you think.

She looks very nice, I really like the way the jewel turned out on the quiver. The shading on the green is also nicely done. What did you use for the vegitation?

Very nice work, Andy. She's a difficult miniature --- loads of surfaces. I was just looking at her as a possibility for one of my 'return to painting' pieces, and she spooked me.

 

You did a *very* nice job. I appreciate the textures you've rendered -- on the quiver, for instance. Nice work. ::):

Yes, she looks great! I love this mini, and you've done a very nice job on her.

 

Just on a small note, it was sharp the way you painted the bark of the stump grey, but the interior of the wood brownish. I think it's a common mistake (and one I've made in the past) to paint stuff like fences "brown"... When you think about it, an old fence-post is usually a middle-to-dark grey tone. Good eye!

 

I also like the base flocking.

It is Fine Leaf Foliage from Woodland Scenics.

I pretty much spent the last two months being "spooked" by her. I'm glad this one is done. She does look nice next to Cinder (I keep imagining the dragon having a little elf snack; yes, I am a DM at heart). ::D:

Thanks. I grew up in the middle of a forest in WI. I spent my childhood in the shade, so I know trees. :rolleyes:

 

 

Very nice work on her. Is she a reaper mini? She seems oldly familiar. Either way I may sneek her into a unit of High Elf shadow warriors.

 

Yep, she's a Reaper. The number listed in the title is her Reaper part number.

 

 

Thanks for all the compliments. Sorry for the rather pathetic WIP on this one. I just wasn't as inspired as I had been on others. I've started my next project and will be posting that WIP tonight.

 

Have a great day.

 

Andy

I must say I love the colors you picked for this mini. Some of the highlights like the gem on the quiver is also very, very nice looking. :)
