I suppose I could try. It's just a question of time management because I have a couple of other commissions I'm also working on. The next piece is the townsfolk gravedigger mini which I'm going to try some lighting effects on. The idea will be to paint him as if he's in moonlight but also include the glow from the lantern. Not at all sure if it will work but I do like to challenge myself!

Yeah, I like quite a gritty feel to my minis, especially on grim looking characters like Anval. The problem with using desaturated colours is you can lose a little focus on the mini so a bit of contrast works to pick it up a bit. The actual gold is paler than the picture. I git a new camera phone and I'm still trying to get to grips with its settings.

Excellent mini and I fully agree with the use of red in the loincloth, one question what color or color mix is your red highlight. When I try to lighten red I get pink you got an awesome highlight.

I use GW and Vallejo paints rather than reaper. I think the base was GW mechrite red, I gave it a was of Army Painter strong tone shade. When washing I tend to direct the paint into the areas I need rather than saturate the whole area. It means you have more control over your shading but also means you don't alter the base colour with the wash.

 

When the wash was dry i went over the non shaded areas with thinned Vallejo gory red. To highlight I mixed in a touch of GW bleached bone, adding a further spot of GW snakebite leather takes the out the pink from bleached bone and pushes the colour back to the slightly orange-muted red range. I wanted the red as a spot but also wanted it to be a little washed out. If you're looking for a more vibrant red, shade by adding white, cream, yellow, orange or a brighter red then make a couple of passes over it using a red glaze. That will shift the overall colour back to red and smooth any colour transitions out. Hope this helps

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:

      This was from a couple months ago; I was pretty unsure what I wanted to do with it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, particularly given that I think I only had three different colors of blue paint in bottles, and two of them were pretty similar.

      Watch out this time of year for this fellow, he'll come riding in with the blizzards!
