Good work on the bases. It's nice to be able to see them individually to appreciate all the details. I like the way you painted Dhulrekk's shield. I've also painted this Dwarf lately but I still need to work on his base.

I second the basing of the cool wall of water!  That would totally be awesome for games!  I love your style- nice crisp details and bright vibrant colors.  Great job!!

Great job re-basing them on their own. I also think it'd be awesome to base your water effect if you can, especially if you play TTRPG's and use your figures for PCs/NPCs.

Thanks everybody!

 

I did try to do something with the water wall effect, unfortunately nothing really worked for me. I was trying to glue it underneath  Ezren and bend it out and upwards to be glued to his outstretched hand. It was too strong to bend and I didn't want to risk the glue not working on his hand. I never really thought about basing the water wall itself. Grrrrrr....should have done that.

It was time consuming to make, but not terribly difficult, so in future I may make another. I'm glad you all liked it.

I really, really like your color selection on these. They look great, especially the dwarf!

 

I'd like to see some bluish white on just the outermost tips of the dragon scales, something very bright to make those edges stand out a bit more. More contrast is rarely a bad plan. That said, Deathsleet looks properly fearsome as she stands. Nice stuff.

Great stuff, thanks for sharing these!  My favorite is the dwarf, and the perfectly ferocious face you captured.  Well done!

good to see more angles of these guys, lots of details we didn't get to see during the contest. they look great on their own bases.

      My wife, @Shinma, started to paint the Clockwork Dragon several years ago. 
      It got to a point where the body was nearly done, and the wings and base remained.
       
      We had prepared a big gear salvaged from a monitor stand, sanded down by a friend.
       
      Then, inspiration and drive was lost and it sat on the shelf, staring at her, unfinished.
       
      Recently she allowed me to finish it. I did the wings, small part of the body, along with the base.
      Here's our result!

      This finally gave me something to use my larger Games Workshop skulls on. I may try to give his hair another highlight of something brighter, as it looks pretty dull at the moment. A fun evil mage that I hope to use as a boss battle one day.

      Sandra Garrity makes some of my favorite Dwarves, and the detail on this one stood out. It doesn't show up much in the picture, but there are some Norse Futhark runes on the blade of the sword in blue that only appear if I rotate the figure 45% left or right. Also, I love dwarves in green.

      Hello sentient painting creatures!
       
      So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
       

       
      from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
       
      With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
       

       
      I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy.  The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
       
      Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.
