Thank you all for the compliments.

 

Don't worry Kharsin you aren't behind. I just really wanted to have my exchange mini sent out to Fishnjeeps in time for his birthday, so I pressed forward with completing him in time. There are a few items I could've fussed more with but in the end I think he turned out ok. Luckily I had an uneventful week and I convinced my weekly gaming group to have a paint night rather than gaming to give me some more time without cancelling on my group allowing me to get him done in time.

 

I can't wait to see more exchange minis completed and will be following along on the exchange thread too.

Ooh red hair is just so hard to paint... but you totally nailed it, this looks awesome! Love the color scheme, it all fits perfectly.  :blush:

 

Thank you, Red hair is my favorite hair color, so I paint it a bit too often.

Try the red hair triad by reaper. It simplifies things when you're getting the grasp of it. I haven't done red hair in a while... hmmm... This is definitely a good example of red hair! :)

Sound advice the red hair triad really helps with red hair I still use it for my redheads I just add a few other colors depending on intensity and brightness. 

 

For the King here I used Reaper's Blackened Brown for the deepest shadow and went as high as Reaper's blonde hair with just a touch of highlight orange added. In case anyone is interested here is a photo of my palette of color mixes and such of his hair colors. The only color that wasn't for his hair in this photo was the white, I had to fix his eye reflection when I noticed it was a bit off on the left eye.

I was going to post a WIP of this miniature after he was sent but I only really took good in process shots of his face and hair. Then I missed a sizeable chunk before I remembered to start again, but I did get most of the hair steps.

      I've been wanting to do a group/series of hellborn/tiefling figures for fun but seems whenever I went to order something they would slip my mind and I get something else. Ah but reaper cursed me and gave me a free hellborn figure and now I can tell I'm gonna be ruined.

      Painting at least one wizard a month is a requirement is it not? When I saw this fig I just luved the Arabian vibe I got off it.

      "You bunch of young ums better beware the White Wolf prowling these hills and country side while out seeking lust and gold," sternly told the Barmaid to the adventurers seeking gossip which she did indeed loved to tell, but this group just rubbed her the wrong way, "the She-devil of the woods will eat you alive!"
      "Ahhh, quite messy with them Babs," said one of her regular patrons, "You'll have them pissing in thier pants telling your 'Witcher' stories.
       
      as you can tell from above I wanted her to have a Ciri/witcher vibe.....

      Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). Normally when I prep mini's I do about six or so of them at a time, this month I found myself preping a baker's dozen...ouch. O well got plenty for next month too...hehe, anyways when sorting for something to paint she caught my eye, I still can't believe how really dainty she is.
