I recently finished this speed paint for a friend to use as his character in an upcoming D&D game our group will be playing. I really enjoyed painting him and experimenting with colors :) C&C Welcome and appreciated!! :D

Very nice work! Especially for a speed paint! If I have one bit of constructive criticism, it's that while the "dark" elements and the "light" elements are both done very well, they clash, slightly (to my eye, anyway). The beard, helm, axe and pants all look like an angry frostbitten viking's gear, but the coat and bag look like that of... what.. an elven minstrel? Something a bit more whimsical, in any case.

I like it. I think maybe a darker wash on the coat and bags would take care of the above mentioned issue.

 

Did you buy or make that base?

 

I think that the base is from Micro Art. I lost the blister a long time ago, but I'm almost certain that it is :) I definitely didn't make it, just painted it. They do amazing work!!

Thanks everyone!! I'll give the mini a dark wash tonight to see if it calms down the colors. My hubby actually picked out the colors for the tunic, as I was having "painter's block", so it may come across too bright. The red is actually more brownish than red on the figure up close, so it may be my photofu messing it up.

 

Overall, the mini took about 8 hours from prep to finish. Usually I'll spend upwards of 20+ per mini if it's display quality... usually tabletop quality figs are between 8-10 (sometimes shorter) hours and are speed paints :D
