The figure itself is lovely. I love the highlighting you've done on the lute and cloak especially. My only feedback is I feel the base is too large, and takes focus off the figure.

I always like your stuff. This looks great. I believe we have actually met, many years ago at the last Baltimore games day but I could be confusing you with someone.

Awesome mini.  After seeing your other stuff, I like Lanura Windsong best.  She looks like you cut it out of a comic book, not painted it.  That's how you know a good mini IMO.  I also particularly liked the crucifix and St. Patrick.

I agree, great color and shading. And the base is kinda big for a playable mini, unless you're going for the diorama feel. If that's the case, you could use some of that base space. Maybe add a small wishing well, or accent the stump in front of her with a tiny birdhouse, bright ivy, or ornament. Anyway, just my two oxidized cents.

 

Looking sharp!

Thank you to all who took the time to post about my miniature.  I appreciate the feedback and the kind words!  And thanks for all the "likes" as well!

 

 

Nice colors and love the highlights. I've been looking to pick up a bard model for a while and that is one of the nicest I have seen.

 

Thank you!  Keep in mind that the lute is a conversion.  Check out the unalterned mini before you order her and make sure it's still what you're after.

You're right, but I wanted to use that wooden plinth, and looked in my box for a mini to put it on.  I saw this mini, and thought, well, it's small, but it could work.  I guess not so much!

I was there.  I met a lot of painters that day, so it's possible we met.

Lanura Windsong is probably my best work, and one of my favorite minis.  I'm glad you found my site, and liked my work!

I'm thinking of maybe trying to sculpt a few crocuses peaking up near the stump.  They always poke through the last snowfall in my yard.  I could paint them to match the bard and bring the base and mini into better harmony.  I was thinking of painting the green moss to match the green of the bard's cloak, too.  It's not really natural, but it's a fantasy piece, so that's ok.  What do you all think?

Now I know I met you.  I remember your troll!  I met so many people that day though...... I just thought I had a vague recollection.

 

Anyways, nice work as always!

She's absolutely gorgeous! The colours you used compliment each other very well and your shading and highlighting on the cloak is really wonderful!

Great job MG! I'm loving the colors and the excellent highlight transitions! That base is really awesome as well. Does your friend have a website? I'm getting kind of bored with the wood blocks I can pick up at Hobby Lobby. You can only do so much to make a square look good!  ^_^

      My son's girlfriend stayed with us a week in the middle of May and I ran a Savage World WW2 horror one-shot.  Tillie here was one of the pre-generated characters I had ready, but she was not picked by any of the 3 players (my husband, my son and girlfriend).

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.


      It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
      These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.

      I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.


      I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
      Ideas are welcome!
      Thanks for looking!

      I built a dispensor robot out of a reaper soda machine, a brain in a jar, a pair of goggles, a battery pack, and a pair of rat cyborg arms. 
       
      It'll get used for this is not a test eventually.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of my latest Gnoll, a converted Toghra the Gnoll Leader. The upper part is from 77235, Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The lower part of the mini is 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor. The spear head is the blade of 02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke and the staff is from 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. Here's the link to the conversion WIP if you'd like more information.
