Overall composition is great.

 

You have really mastered dry brushing, but be careful not to depend on it.

 

To give feedback on the eyes we need a direct shot of the face. It looks like you used Pure White for the iris, pros recommend using a near white like Linen White or a light grey and after some experimenting I believe them.

Yeah I try not to drybrush too much, it doesn't quite fit with the rest of the highlighting style and I can only pretty much do it if I don't have to pay any attention to the rest of the mini, to stay within the area so to speak.

 

Not pure white, got ya. *scribble scribble*

I do use white for eyes, but I use the almond eyes technique and lay down either black or dark brown underneath; so when I think down my white and apply it over the area it comes out to the same effect. It's partly about the technique you use as an individual.

 

I think you should be very proud of this piece! ^_^

Where's his bow?

Wait what bow? :P This is a... 'melee' ranger, a-yup!

 

I find that with the eyes my brush won't allow me to do 'dots' well enough, I have to pretty much make a line for it to stick. The smallest brushes I can use are ... simply still too big! *complain complain* :)

FTFY.

 

Very small brushes, even in humid climates (and inside humidity is starting to fall rapidly in the northern hemisphere), will allow the surface of the paint to dry before you can put it into a small dot. It's a surface-area to volume ratio thing*.

 

A larger brush with a good point (premium Kolinsky sable brushes work well here) will do small details far better than a very small brush.

 

* TMI: volume varies as the cube of the diameter (assuming constant proportions) while surface area varies as the square of the diameter. Drying speed is proportional to the ratio of surface area to volume, thus it is proportional to the diameter of the brush. Slower drying speed means easier (and smoother) application of paint to surface. Buy the largest brush with a good point that you can control.

      and the last of this month's work, pretty sure can't see another one out of me with only half a day left. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
       
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
       
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
       
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
