tiniest rhombus

I think this was my 6th completed mini. Done in October last year. I love this scuplt. Love. It. I want another one. It's hard to make out but the drum is made of bone and flesh. He looks so happy about it to. His name is Gary and he would like to thank that poor hapless bard he murdered for the awesome maracas. He was done with craft paints cause that's all I had at the time.

 

Comments and constructive criticism welcome

What a strange and silly little figure.

 

Your fundamentals are sound. The colors are clean and controlled and your transitions are sharp.

 

It would be improved by more shading and highlights.

Not surprisingly, I agree with Pingo.  :)  It's very neatly done, very smooth.  The bone drumsticks in particularly are calling out for some shading, though. 

 

Still, a very original and fun goblin!

Thanks for the kind words. I agree more contrast is needed. All the colors were mixed so I'm afraid to mess with his skin so much. I don't remember how I mixed them. I could definitely shade and highlight dem bones though.

      They're not pretty but they get the point across. It was my first attempt at really pushing myself for speed. I cranked these out in about 4 paint sessions over 2 weeks with a goal of "not terrible table top". My DnD friends are in for a little surprise (many little green surprises)....

      Here's a rundown on how I make quick, cheap trees for tabletop games.  For well under $10 you can have 3 clumps of good looking terrain using commonly available materials. 
       

      What you need:
       
      - glue, white and cyanocrylic (Super Glue)
      - 50mm round bases
      - sand, gravel, or kitty litter
      - craft paints
      - craft brushes
      - wire cutters
      - flock
      - plastic flowers from a hobby craft store, commonly called "stems" or a "bush" if there is  clump of them. Look for something more or less tree like, with branches.  This example is covered with clumps of foam.  They come in various colors depending on the time of year. 
       

       
      Step one consists of separating each stem of flowers from the clump, discarding the leaves.  Leave the "flower" part attached to the wire stems.   Use wire cutters to trim stems to about 4" long. 
       
      Coil each wire tightly so that it fits on your 50mm base.  Bend and shape each stem so that you can fit 2 or 3 stems on each base.  
       
      Use Super Glue to attach firmly. 
       
      Step two: sand and paint.  The sand helps cover up the wires, and adds a little weight for stability.  It looks best if you paint the base and wires, then glue down sand or gravel (let it dry) and paint a 2nd time.  This gives you good coverage on the base, and on the sand.  
       

       
       
      Step three: flock and details.  I already added gravel to make large stones, but you can add more if you want a rocky look.  It sticks best if you glue to the sand before adding flock.
       
      Cover the base with white glue and then apply flocking of your choice. 
       

       
       
      Now you can add finer details like grass tufts, flowers, leaves, or colored flock.
       
       
       
      I added orange flock to enhance the autumn theme.  My final step was to give the bright grey rocks a little brown wash to make them look more natural.

      Not exactly a speed paint, but still completed within only a couple of evenings. I like the way he turned out without all that much effort. I guess I got kinda lucky on this one.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the first model I painted this year. Seems like I'm having a busy January...
      02789, Talarand the Blackguard was sculpted by Tim Prow. It's one of the top five favorite model I painted so far. This suit of armor is astounding.
