The belt looks flat compared to the rest.

 

Nice job. These last few minis definitely show improved brush control and highlights. Those blues are popping.

Looking good all around. I think that the fur might need a bit more of a highlight around the top and the foot to make it look properly shaded and highlighted and the blue by his raised leg is a bit intense compared to the rest of the cloth.

 

The skin turned out nice and the face is great.

 

Will go in tonight and make that change to the fur for highlighting and darken that blue a little bit nearer his leg so that it isn't so intense. Thanks for the advice!

 

Very well executed on the skin tone and figure. After having read that you already sealled him, Only advice I got to offer is that I have found adding a thin line of an almost white color to the crown of the head gives it the shiney look.

 

Good idea, I'll add some of the higher highlight to the crown of his head as you suggest. Thanks!

 

Nice work with the viens, this has turned out really well. I feel like the pupil on the eye needs to be darker. It is sort of greyed out right now and doesn't quite have that sharp look it needs. This is easily, far and away your best work yet. Bravissimo!

 

Actually I wanted him to have very light grey eyes, but I'll check it out under the magnification tonight and see if I should mess with it. The eye in person looks really good, so I'm thinking that it's being a little bit washed out with the quick iPhone pics that I've been taking. Thanks for the compliments and feedback!

I went with a brown ink on the belt over a white color, it looks more like tooled brass now, I might go back over it to add some highlights though now that you mention it. Thank you for the C&C!

Nice ub3r.

 

I like the skin, the blues and the fur...the browns for some reason don't look finished to me.

 

Who makes this mini btw?

Thanks! Trying to get this to a really nice quality, so feedback is greatly appreciated.

 

How do they not look finished? Need more highlights? Or shading? Different color(s) needed? Please elaborate.

 

It's from Raining Frogs Garage. Link is in my signature.

Alright, I should have said how in the first place, sorry about that.

 

The browns that I was referring to are all the leather straps.  They look like a base color with very little to no shading and highlighting.

 

Mind you I am no master painter, these are just my thoughts and opinions so take them with salt and lemon...and tequila...I think I am going to go get a drink before I read or post more.

Looking forward to seeing your results.

 

Kind of weird for me to be giving any kind of painting advice when I haven't painted any miniatures in more than a year now...and I have never even posted any of my painted minis on here...what are you thinking following my advice?!?!

 

;-)

Just cause you haven't painted in a while or posted doesn't mean you don't see something I overlooked!

 

That's the big thing with WIP threads, get that outside perspective because you are too close to your own projects. It helps a lot.

The coloring you worked into the skin works well and it looks like you glazed over the veins with you skin color to help make them look like real veins.

Thanks! Yes, I did. Good eye.

I should but I have lost all motivation to paint, which is bad as a friend has paid me to paint a few minis for him.  He is a very patient man, thankfully, as I haven't touched them in a long, long time.  

 

I have tried to sit down and paint a few times but I can't get into it.

 

I had a bout of terrain building and painting a little while ago but even that has passed now.

 

I really do hope I find a new muse soon as I would like to paint a few of the minis I have purchased recently.

 

Sorry to derail your thread ub3r.

I hope you find your muse as well. Maybe a work of art, maybe a character you play in a ttrpg, or maybe a figure will speak to you (like the barbarian dude does to me).

 

No problems on the derail. I do it all the time and if it helps you to get back into it, I'm more than happy for the thread jack.

      I think I've hit that point where I can admit, I officially have too many projects going. I have three figures in various stages of being painted (the orc, elf ranger, and a halfling PC). I have a full box of Cadian Shock Troopers primed with only one test painted and that one isn't even fully test painted. There are three kobold in various stages of being painted and modified. I found some plastic skull rings that are being painted to be used as shields. I think the kobold with the sword would look great with a shield. Last but not least I have a wiz kids miniature I'm working on for my wife.
      At the moment I don't have a dedicated painting station, our place right now is pretty small. So I started using an old carving knife box to store my ongoing projects. It's never been this full before though. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, heck this might even be a mild case.

      Hail Repearites,
      Since my Bones I Kickstarter package arrived recently and I started to paint them, I decided that now is a good time to sporadically post my progress here, and maybe receive some valuable input.
      These are all meant to be tabletop quality (i.e. better quality than WotC's minis - the old batches).
      I am a newbie painter.
      I don't have a lot of spare time, so I sneak a few minutes here and there where I can.
      Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
       
      First up is a WIP of a paint and take from a local comic convention. We painted three space marines in 45 minutes, using truly horrendous brushes (think of Buglips brushes post Kaladrax), and Citadel paints (one red for base coating, one brown wash for shadowing everything, one pink dry goo for highlighting, and one grey gravelly paint for the base. I wish that I had taken down their names).
      This was a lot of fun, and most of all proved to me that I CAN paint minis quick and dirty and yet get a good enough result for tabletop games.
      The space marines were primed in black when we got them. The first coat was just sloshing red paint over them. The brushes allowed for no subtlety here. Think of painting a Reaper Bones Kobold with a tree trunk and you'll get the idea.

       
      Second coat: weird pink highlights. iPhone camera barely shows them, so you'll have to believe me.
      Third coat: shadow with the black/brown wash/ink - I think it had oil in the name.

       
      Final coat: basing the marines with a grey paint that had little bits of gravel on it - and explained why the brushes looked the way they were.

       
      After that I did some touch ups, but for some reason I can't find a picture of the results. I'll snap one later and attach it to this post.
       
      Next post : Flesh Golem, the oh so famous rats, and an orc and a goblin meet in an adventuring group.
