Wow, what a great job on him you did Silver! Good looking black hair, gold metals, snow is excellent, browns are very nice, and good looking skin.

For a second, I read "good looking back hair."

 

LOL

 

But yes, those browns are excellent.

Thanks Ub3r, much appreciated.

 

Nice Job!  Mine doesnt look half that good.

 

Thanks Kangaroorex, your comments on mumble during the 24 hour paint-a-thon got me to try to paint the snow on the base.

LOL, since I personally have no back hair I have never heard that phrase spoken to me.

WOW!!!  He looks really good.  I think the metallics look really good.  As mentioned above the matt sealer will knock down the highlights but you can always go back and just pick out some high highlights after the matt coating.  

 

Your Steel looks really good.  For me, steel metallic is harder than gold.  

 

The black hair is also really good.  Nice highlights..

The gold is really nicely done!

Thanks, I definitely plan on practicing this method some more.

 

Your colour choices really came together nicely. Well done! I quite like your work on him.

Thanks, wish I could take all the credit but aside from the hair I kept pretty much kept to the color choices from the LTPK5 photo reference.

 

Awsome. Just awsome. Your sealer and matt may have toned down the highlights a bit, but subtle can have its advantages.

Thanks, I think the way sealer tones down can be used to advantage on a miniature.  Especially to help smooth out blends.

Thanks.  That's a good Idea to repaint the highlights, especially if paint up a mini for transport.  Yup, steel is gonna take some more work to get it feel passible to me.

 

As always, comments, critiques, and likes are appreciated!

While my painting speed has improved, it will be a little while before I get around to rest of my group of dwarfs. Still have to finish Rasia from LTPK5. Next is Kord. By then I'll hopefully have narrowed down my entry for the spaceship superstar contest.

 

With so many figure to paint between Bones & metals, I can understand why Buglips took requests on his speed paint thread. I want to paint them all and I'm starting to feel I can do them a little justice. Request would help the decision process.

I've asked several times for requests. I get heavy indecision between projects. Sounds like you have a good plan for the next few. That's how I'm trying to stay focused, by setting goals. Right now it's finish Reapercon 2014 lessons/projects, then I'll start working on ideas for next year's contest. I'm not competitive, but I find the competitions a good way to get inspired and break the cycle of indecision.

I think everyone hit the nail right on the head with your work. I'd like to add that the horns on the helmet look super. Excellent work!

Thanks Anne, painting the shadowed parts is the closest I've been willing to come to freehand.

      Some people might call it Minivember, though technically I had 23 days of vacation and just wanted to paint a mini every day. Some were finishing older minis, some entirely new, some were the size of a nailclipping. I present, my Minivember.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Presenting the Rotten Mummy, as the name suggests he's a Mummy that's going rotten, and he's part of the Egyptian faction for the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      It's a really fun to paint mini that is annoying hard to photograph, but I think I did a decent job on him.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did. 
      Dominant paints used:
      Punk rock pink 09286
      Marid blue 89526
      Clear magenta 09098
      Regal purple 09238
      Clear purple 09099
      Nightmare black 09280
      Fair skin 09047
      Dark elf skin 09164
      Pure black 09037
      Pure white 09039
      Let me know what you think!
