Looking great! It seems like you painted this one a lot faster than the last. Do you have any additional basing plans, or is this for a larger diorama? Good show!

Thanks for the compliment !

I wish I was capable of doing a diorama, but I'm not at this stage.

I'm not planning on doing any other basing at the moment.

I am gathering stuff to start basing on my next mini, since I'm still learning how to paint.

This miniature was "full sized", not a thunderbolt mountain mini.

So I wasn't dealing with minute details like on the 25mm mini's.

I could move a lot faster (though I was still painting like I was in ultra-miniature mode).

This Miniature has been a great painting discovery, and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

Thanks Gang.

I was surprised that no one commented on the horse's painted hooves.

I went searching around looking at photos of horses, and came across some photos of Arabian horses with tasseled halters, and blankets.

some of those photos also showed painted, gilded hooves on the horses.  I thought, why not !

This miniature was also teaching me about continuity, and making things balanced.

I wanted this mini to be more dynamic.

I like the gold armor against the white robes.  Very striking.

Thank you.

I was really concentrating on the shadows with the white robes,

when I decided that I needed to simply make the armor stand out.

Gold seemed the simplest answer with all the other colors I had going on !

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.

      Since I have moved to Portland, I have FINALLY gotten my painting desk, and miniatures set up in front of a window.
      I've started working on them.  My plan is to set up a royal tomb using 1000 year old oak tree bark, and two Tom Meirer
      elven guards.  This is what I have done so far.  I may have to build the tomb higher, and the placement of the guards is
      just to get them in the picture.  Work in Progress.  So this is my new beginning on the West Coast.

      I have actually been painting, sadly I'm no longer as fast as I used to be.  I just wanted to post a photo of two Tom Meirer Elf's
      that I am currently painting.  I have gotten a bit ambitious as to the guards, and also the basing project.  So when it is done, I will
      post in the show off Forum.  I have gotten rather fond of the plastic vise grippers to hold the miniatures.

      After ALL this Time I am going to Post a  WIP ???
      Well, I broke all my rules about painting a miniature with this one. 
      I designed the BASE FIRST (do that last Normally).
      Attached the figure to the base, its glued and pinned (becoming a nut-job really).
      So now I have to paint this puppy on its base, and I have NO CLUE as to what it is.
      Two eyes, claws, lots of mouth, furry, and VERY Little.  Might be smaller than my dwarf that I posted.
      I believe it is.
      So I'll try to post photos as I go about this.  Maybe I'll learn something, maybe not.
      Here is the start of the little Woolly creature on his base made from a piece of 1000 year old oak bark,
      taken from the area where the crotch of a limb might have been. 
      Toss a comment in if you feel like it.
      Jay
