awesome!  I love the subdued colors, and the blue-red combo really works well!  The only thing I can think of to make the eyes pop more is contrast- I wonder if you could darken the edges around the pupil area to make it look more glowey or add a single pinpoint dark spot in an off-center orientation just to make it look eerie.  I'm not sure.  But they're freaky!!  Great job!

It's funny you mention the eye-dot b/c I heavily considered that as well. I was listening to a documentary about wildlife in Malaysia and it specifically was talking about the eyes of praying mantis' and how they can focus their lenses and form a small black dot that look like a pupil.

Looks really good.  Really like the color choices and your transitions are very nice... 

Thank you sir!

I've a Summer cold so I thought I'd pop in here to see what's shakin'.  And this piece really caught my eye.

 

The cool colours of his head against the warm colours of his body is a brilliant idea. I think your transitions are well done and look like a natural progression on real skin. The colour choices there are inspired.  Also the base is minimal, looks good and doesn't take the focus off the figure. I can't tell which one is BONES and which is metal. There aren't a lot of painters who can pull that off. I couldn't.

 

I'm excited that you're doing pieces for the Sci-Fi challenge and look forward to seeing what you do!

I am gaga over the subtle nuances of color, the balance, and the deft handling of shadow and highlighting.

This really is a symphony of color and balance.

Astonishing work.

I am awestruck just looking at it.

You are Inspirational !

Thank You for this gift !

Thank you! I'm always drawing little bits of inspiration from seeing other people's work, so I'm honored to do the same!

 

Nice job! I love your blending on the wings. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! I really wanted a different color scheme than something purple and green; let's face facts, if it has tentacles and is anything remotely C'Thulian in nature the first instinct is to go purple and green...

Very cool. I've been looking at this model every time I stop into the shop but in my head I've always seen it as the 'monster green' colors. This has helped me visualize what I could do with this one. Gonna have to buy it next time. Now I'm thinking sickly blue and necro-green.

      Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh.  A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors.  At least they are working together...  they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis!
       
      we have a Halfling fighter
      an elven thief with a fixation for daggers
      a halfling bard
      the blue dragonborn priest of Protos
      the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head.  I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...)
      and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums
       
      hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....

      Here is my Callie.
      I painted her as a second WIP for my BONES 1 attempts.
      I really like the sculpt.  I painted her as a half-orc or orc.  She has some freckles, nice green gems, and some ivy freehand on the cloak.
       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.

      Another villager from me. :) This is a 03856 Townsfolk: Courtesan
       
         
       
      Got this one done at a painting day in about 3 hours of work, but interrupted by cups of tea. :)

      Spent the last three days doing new techniques I've never done before. First-time face texturing, using an airbrush, and first time NMM.

      I made this model at a Reaper Bones make & take at Historicon 2015(?).  I really enjoyed making him and thought he turned out well and had plans to paint him one day......and then the Secret Sophie came along and my recipient wanted a cool monster or creature and I thought this model fit the bill in spades.   The main model I used is KAGUNK, OGRE CHIEFTAIN (https://www.reapermini.com/search/ogre/latest/77105), armed with a demonic looking whip, using a sarcophagus lid as a shield (https://www.reapermini.com/search/crypt/latest/77137), legs from...something (gryphon maybe), spines from a small dragon, and some various heads as trophies around his waist. 
       
      I decided to name him Takzez and have given him two brief write ups - one as a bad guy and one as a good guy.  However, I do want to have the receiver to have something to himself and he can let me know later if he'd like me to share that info or not later.  But in the meantime, here he is.  Apologies for the photos, I rushed as it is already late.

       
       
      I do wish I'd had more time to work on his skin and legs, although the skin turned out tons better than my first attempt at it.  Oh wow, I am going to hit that inner bottom corner on the shield with a was a few times before I send it.
       
      C&C welcome!
