The colors you chose are WONDERFULLY vibrant & your brushwork is SPLENDID. GREAT WORK!

If you can get the base to match that BEAUTIFUL background, you'll have a treasure.

Wow!  That red is gorgeous!  And the hint of red in the purple pants- it really sells the reflective fabric.  Beautiful!  I really like what you've done with the sword- I love those little linear highlights.  And nice work with the background!  Only thing I can think of would be increasing the contrast in the chest area- it ends up blending together a bit.  Maybe an extra shadow at the edge of the purple, or an extra highlight on the purple or the edge of the red.  But that's just nitpicking.  Awesome work!!

Great job on this figure all around, love the eyes, the blending, and the NMM!

 

Totally agree with malefactus though, if you based him he'd be complete.

Cloak and clothes are awesome. Excellent job overall I particularly like the fade on the pants going almost to white without passing through the yellow or chalky blue. Excellent job!

Thanks everyone!

@MissMelons, I used a 10/0 brush, not airbrush, not dry brushing. I basically followed Darkstar painting technique. Don't let your paint get dry from one layer to the other and you'll get a smooth blending. Wet palette is a great tool to work with.

@Maglok, The red is Reaper MSP Blood Red, shaded with Pure Black and highlighted with Blood Red / Lava Orange, Lava Orange, Lava Orange / Sun Yellow. Then, Purple glaze and Orange glaze. The Purple cloths are a blend of Purple, Tanned Skin, Spattered Crimson highlighted Tanned Leather and Sun Yellow.

@Corporea, I won't have much time to complete the base and rework the shading as I'll soon go on a three weeks holiday, but thanks for your comments. It's really appreciated.

The use of purple to shade the red cloak ties it in perfectly with the pants! What a great colour choice. The staff is also really, really nice.

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      Good Friday everyone. Here is 03492, Autumn Bronzeleaf Elf Wizard Sculpted by Jeff Grace. She's certainly one of the most challenging model I ever paint. The level of detail on this mini is just insane. Enjoy and have a great weekend.

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
       
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
