Bravo!! Very well done!!!!

 

You cant take an uncouth barabarian anywhere(Glares at him for shield banging)

 

Well done Jay you have now taken another small step to the dark side of the hobby... (slugs barbarian..keep it down I had to much Grog last night)

 

Soon we will have you cutting them off thier bases and crafting one solely from you imagination ....now I wonder where I can snag some birch seeds as I stare at my shelf of finished minis without bases!

Jasonator, I just want to remind you of something, because its always important to see where you have been in order to see where you are going.

 

About a year ago, you posted this:

And here you are, posting this:

Your technique has grown by leaps and bounds, and you should be incredibly proud of what you have accomplished.

 

Nicely done, dude. Seriously - Bravo. :)

The level of refinement you have is increasing by leaps and bounds.  I am impressed.  I think now you need to think a little more about lighting.  I think a higher dynamic range should be something you aspire to.

Thank you Ub3r,

I really started to laugh when I began gluing those Birch seeds to the base.  I have forty birch trees marked on a map to collect their seeds in the spring.

I'll even figure out how to dye them !

Thank you for those !

I have just located a source for the Jeweler's saw I require..

Thank you for your support :)

Uh.. Ub3r gave me my birch seeds.. you may have to bribe the barbarian with exotic coffees.

 

A wonderful job on a Dark a Sword piece I love it.

Thank you Marsya, I have had so much fun doing this one.

 

Looking very good sir!

Thank you for your comment and I have to admit, this has been a hoot.

I feel the urge to really heighten the contrast now as I do these.

So you are really right on about that dynamic range.. I keep on thinking that it is time to unleash the wet on wet, dynamic color changes !

I'm going to go in that direction...

Thanks Dontfear !

Galladril;

You BLEW ME OUT OFTHE WATER with your post !

The contrast stopped me Dead in my tracks !!!!!!!!!!

OMG... What a shock that was !

Thank you so much for your input, and your contrast from past to future.

I think  that was so empowering a thing to do, and also so humbling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think I ever need fear having an overly TURGID BRUSH !!!!!!!!!!!!!

:zombie:

Thank you so very much...

This is an absolutly magnificent job you have done on this miniature, your progression has really took a leap forward and everything on this fits well together at a high standard. You should be very proud of this work and keep pushing yourself I think there is still a lot of potential for even more development in your painting. Again excellent stuff ;)

It's wonderful watching you swoop along the learning curve. This is a gorgeous mini, and you've done an impressive job with all those shades of green.

One minor suggestion would be to put a thin wSh of black or vallejo some over the gold the re highlight to add a little depth ;)

You've done an absolutely wonderful job on this elf, he looks like he stepped out of one of Tolkien's books.  ^_^  And it's true, you've improved dramatically in a fairly short time.  You've earned it, you paint regularly and push yourself to try new things.  Bravo!

Thank You Littlebluberry;

I have to admit that I am really happy getting to this point, The challenges are richer, and knowing I can do some things makes me reach further out to attempt

a certain effect.  I like that I now am not afraid to add freehand touches, or add a detail that isn't there, but I feel should be.  Thank you for your kind support as

I learn how we make these sculpts come to life.

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!
