BEAUTIFUL brushwork, base, & palette! The eyes are OUTSTANDING...GREAT WORK!

The supporting cast are LOVELY miniatures in their own right.

It's the Eye of the Beholder-colored beholder!   Great color on that aberrant creature and I was wondering about that sculpt myself, knowing it's resin, I'll pass for now.

 

I very much like the mini-scene with the three adventurers.  All that's left of the fourth and fifth are a statue and a pile of dust, right?

Great job! I love the work on the eyes, and that skin is wretchedly brown, which is a great thing! I may need to get one of these just to practice eyes! Kudos!

Thanks everybody!

I didn't take a pic, but he also came with an completely clear stand/base. very useful for being the ground of any scenario.

 

I think I had a thing for doodling eyes when I was younger and I just needed to figure out a way to put it to paint instead of ink or pencil. I very excitedly leaped out of my chair when I was done. You can probably mess up anything BUT the eye when painting a beholder. lol

lol - Yeah, I was thinking around the same thing when I set that scene up. I think their only option at this point is a combination of defensive spells and running away.

 

The Beholder came in a set with a wizard and a Mind Flayer that I am not really interested in painting. Nice models, but they are resin which I am not fond of either. Spring Mini exchange!

Haha, JDizzO the necromancer!  I am jealous of your beholder.  Not sure what there is to touch up though.  It looks great!  For some reason I always think of Baulder's Gate Dark Alliance when I see a beholder.

Very nicely done - especially in light of the difficulties you had building the figure.  I did the GF9 Umber Hulk up for a client a months back, so I TOTALLY feel your pain.  I was ready to test fly it across the room several times.

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic

      Finished my beholder. It's a little over exposed after stacking the photos. I'm too lazy to take new pictures. He was fun to paint! i'm happy with how he came out, Need to keep pushing myself though.

      Hello forum family, back to share the most recent of my paints. This was pretty fast (well for my standards). 
      Ok: I'm starting to be addicted to purples... basically I'm painting everything in Purple/Violet/Magenta... Let's call it "Cicciopiu's purple period" 
      Well... what can I say? Is the Beholder... is purple... yes, that's all  ...Oh yes: no drooling, is a good guy that keeps his teeth clean! (ok I didn't want to mess with UHU).
      Hope you will like it.

      As always every c&c is more than welcome.
      Thank you for watching :)
