You guys always do so awesome on faces!!!!!! 

:blush: Thanks MissMelons, I really worked on faces when I started painting mini's.  Glad all that work is starting to pay off.

 

 

She turned out looking great Silver! 

Thanks Uber.  I'm starting to think I might be ready to try one of the painting contest on the forum.

I think shading the yellow with purple was an excellent choice.

Thanks Pingo!  Seems the more I paint the more I realize how little I know about colors.  I never would have thought to add purple if I hadn't seen it used in a paint video.  And since I just started reading "Blue and Yellow don't make Green", I feel more experimental.

 

i think it came out much better than 'ok'. Good job!

Wow! Thanks Choaswolf.  I'm a harsh critic of my work when I first look at it.  After a day or two I can look at it an appreciate it better.

 

Awesome job, she came out great, she really "pops"!

Thanks Spencerjohn.  I found that lining really helps with that.  I lined the mini with the purple shade color to try and keep an overall feeling of light on the figure.  Hope it reads that way.

Dang. I was looking and thinking it was a metal mini until I scrolled back up and read your text about it being bones. Wow!

Nicely done!  The hat looks great and the basing is perfect for the mini! 

 

I will agree with the others, you have done more than a fine job here.

I like the choice you made on the shadowing of the folds of the apron and the head wrap. Imo it is what kept it really cohesive. Excellent work on the old timey wood panel base. You did a great job making her stand out.

Wow. Beautiful. I think you hit the nail right on the head with the purple shading. It really brings out the yellow. I wouldn't have realized it was purple unless you said so, but that's probably my lack of experience. Beautiful job.

Yep, another point for bones supporters.

 

Hope my experiment give others more options next time they paint up yellow.

 

Thanks again for all the likes and comments. ::D:

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
