Nice job. How'd you do the writing in thew book?

 

Just freehanded it--erm, if that counts as freehand--with a little black on the pointy, pointy tip of the brush. Tried to dab tiny and rune-like. Oh, the brush had a split tip, making it forked-like, and I tried to use that to my advantage in a couple spots. (And washed it, then, with SW's Parchment wash.)

I love Sandra Garrity's characters.

 

If I may offer a criticism, the face looks a little flat. Maybe some color on the lips, some shadow in the eye sockets, to enhance features?

Thought about that, but was afraid of overshooting. What kind of colors should I think about?

So I know this question was directed at Pingo, but for lips at least I generally get good results mixing a tiny bit of red with whatever the flesh color is.  You don't have to get the lips perfect, it looks better to put on a little less lip color than to put on too much.  You could probably also use a thin coat of a coral or pink, but mixing with the flesh tone is a fast and easy way to make sure it looks natural. 

 

EDIT:  I'm also a fan of Sandra Garrity, she does a great job of making miniatures that are fun to paint.
