I'll need to look at her on a bigger screen, but she looks awesome and you did a good job on the base.

 

The blonde hair looks great, and reminds me of one of my favourite Boris paintings.

It is 800 px wide; some browsers may shrink it. You may be able to click to view it 'full size'.

 

I did the blonde hair almost as an excuse to try out the Reaper 'blond hair' triad. It ended up coming out sooooooo 80's to me, which I like. :D

I think you did an awesome job on the scales and base but find the skin is too bland and blends in too much for with the hair. It could be that your lighting washed the skin out too much (as I can see some strong glaring on your backdrop) but I think there could be some more defining shadows.

Might be a bit of column A and a bit of column B - I *am* getting a lot of glare. I don't know if anyone might have suggestions on how to beat that.

 

I'm currently using a little cheapy lightbox I picked up from Amazon, with three lamps - a clamp lamp overhead, and two small lamps on each side. It is the clamp lamp that is throwing the glare, but without it there just isn't enough light. Maybe it's the bulb I'm using? I believe it might be a 75 Watt halogen.

The "coral snake" effect on the tail is mighty fine. I actually attempted something close to that one my metal version some time ago, but failed to pull it off. It's a challenging task, and what you did with it looks good. Mad props.

WOW. The colour variation and the edging of the scales are beautifully done, and that is a fantastic base. I echo Monkeysloth's desire for a little more contrast between the skin and hair, but that's the only critique I can offer.

Great paintjob, the colours on the tail are spot on.

If the clamp doesn't let you to move the overhead lamp farther away from the lightbox, you could try to replace the bulb with less powerful one, or try to dim the light with some softeners (photography stores should have it, if not, I've used white baking paper as softener, but it's probably too thick for a 75w lamp and absorbs too much of the light).

      I couldn't come up with a scheme I liked for this guy, then me and friend were talking about tv shows we used to watch,  and she said Gargoyles and it just sorta clicked. Kinda simple but I think it turned out ok.

      Presenting Slimux (A Demon Gardener) and Mulch (His loyal Plough Snail), characters from the Nurgle Demon faction for the Warhammer games by Games Workshop.
       
      Glad to get this one finished at last, it's been sitting at around 80% done for about a year.
      I'm really happy with how Mulch turned out, less so with Slimux, I think I just used too many similar colours on him (and yellow eyes wasn't a great idea either).
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Simple conversion painted to tabletop quality for the big bad for my D&D group.

      I painted Devil Girl's clothing in Vallejo Black and thought, "God, that's boring". So I added 1/3 Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue to the black and redid her coat. Adding the blue makes the black much richer, and I washed the black over with Army Painter Blue Tone. Her skin was done with Vallejo Flat Red, Red and Vermillion. Her hair is black and drybrushed with Vallejo Royal Purple. The lava is Liquitex Modelling Paste and the slabs are just plasticard. Her eyes took FOREVER to get right, which was frustrating as hell as they're just yellow with a thin black line.
       
      The paint scheme and base are shamelessly ripped off this one by @TheOldGuard, although he/she can do OSL and I can't (and wasn't even going to attempt it).

      I am the Lord of Darkness.
      I require the solace of the shadows,
      and the dark of the night.
      Sunshine is my destroyer.
       
      All this shall change.
      Tonight, the sun sets forever
      There shall never be another dawn!

      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.
