The axe head is very nicely done and shows a certain amount of character.

 

What he said. Nice use of a couple of flickers of color, to offset the browns and grays.

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

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.

      Hey everyone, here's a two-piece model I painted for my current D&D campaign. Strongly attached to the Halloween theme 77540, Large Sarcophagus sculpted by Kevin Williams. A place of eternal rest, unless there are ghouls around.

      I started my Benedikt Project. It is going to be a present for my brother Benedikt.
      I assume this guy will take me a very along time. The mini sits on my desk for s long time but Progress is slow. Maybe Posting here will get me some Motivation.
       
      I will try a style with stark contrasts of light and dark like some of Frazettas works.
      The mini will get a special Base but that is a long was to go.
       
      So lets get started.
