Oh my goodness, that's gorgeous. One of the best paintjobs I've seen in a while. Very well done, Marsya. The hat, the gemstones, the fire, the squirrel, the basing... I would be over the moon if I was your client.

This came out extremely well. The wizard, the squirrel and your base work all work quite nicely together.

Congratulations!

Beautiful paint job and base!  As for the background, the blue definitely shows the colors and detail in your paint job better than the black background.

Aww thanks everyone for the kind words. I really enjoyed this one and am glad everyone likes him. The 30mm base sure did give me a lot of room to work with to add tiny details to really set him off, unlike the typical small base for gnomes.

 

I love the way the squirrel sets off the scene and really should consider adding more creatures to my basework more often.

I picked up the squirrel and some other furry friends years ago with the intention of creating a sleeping beauty diorama. Hmm... Maybe I should actually start that.

 

Thank you all again for the suggestions and help as it shows in my final work.

Thanks Pingo and Arc.

 

My husband took a few better photos for me so I edited the original post to show a close up of my gnome, it really shows the moss I added to his staff better i think.

      After going back to Darius and repaint him I decided to do the same with Domur. Like I did with Darius, I'm posting both versions, the first I painted and the current one. I kept both since I had two or three of them.
      For the first one I tried a scheme similar to the official one: on the second, a more conservative fire look.

      hey guys,
       
      here is a little conversion about the mercenary mage ; Leysynn.
       
      The original magic staff has been removed for a simple one (more natural for my mage), made from needle and some wire mixed with glue. 
      The figurine was unbased and cut a little bit to be more mixable with my 28mm collection. So he lose his feet and the end of his long dress.
       

       
      hope you like him
       
      Cheers
      Eric

      These are the Deep Gnome Heroes. I love these minis! Their sculpts are so full of personality! I think the girl gnome may have the best face I have painted thus far!

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      In 2018 I got one of my favourite 25th Anniversary miniatures, Darius the Blue. I actually have all three of Darius sculpts, the latest being my favourite too. 
      First I tried to paint it with the same mosaic pattern Reaper used, without any success, so I settled with... kind of a freehand that I didn't like at all and a very excentric color palette. 
      That (in my opinion) failed attempt got stuck on my head and recently I bought another one to paint it again, and I'm a lot happier with the results. This is my only "1 year improvement" pic, and I thought on sharing it here since being the exact same miniature I would love some feedback. 
       
      Here the 2018 version 
       

       
      And the 2019 version that I just finished today
