Some nice color choices and clean painting, good job!

 

For feedback, I'd work on boosting contrast, putting in more shadow. Looks like your paint may have gotten thick in a few spots, so just watch your consistency.

Agreed.

 

I love the use of color and your ideas for bringing out personality in each piece is very nicely executed.

I second cash on his comments, it took me a long time to realize the importance of deeper shadows higher highlights, well done on the black pirate as in not using black and using shades of brown to get a realistic skin tone and love cannot aim Santa. Well done all round ;)

Yep, higher highlights deeper shadows. It is a mantra I say to myself every time I sit down to paint. It's difficult for me to judge at times. I guess it becomes easier with practice. :-)

 

Love your color selections and excellent work on dem eyes.

Thanks that is definitely feedback I need. I am always afraid to add too much water to the paint, but maybe I need to as the layers get higher. And that seems to be the consensus so at least I know what I need to work towards, or focus on the most right now.

Thanks I'll need to make that my new mantra as well. Especially since it seems to be the most common feedback I'm getting.

 

I usually use the reaper triads to do all my layering, is the color depth in a single triad not enough? Should I be darkening the darkest color and lightening the lightest color for more of a range? I realize it could just be my painting too, that I'm not leaving enough of the dark, just trying to get an understanding of if that range is enough or should I be expanding it.

 

Just want to really say thanks everyone who's provided feedback to me on this or any of my other posts, it really does help in making me try the things to be a better painter.

Triads are a great place to start, most of my early work was just using triads. But most of the triads by themselves don't provide enough contrast for folks looking to progress their skill level beyond tabletop. I'd say it would be worth it for you to experiment with paint consistency to get a feel for it. Possibly watch some videos, though even when someone does good demonstrations of consistency, nothing beats playing around with it yourself. I still struggle with it all the time.

You can get more layers than three out of the triad by lightening the highlight with a lighter color and darkening the shadow color with a darker one as well. 5 layer stretch, 7 layer stretch...

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a cute but deadly little lady goblin. 14178, Skralla the Reven Hero was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      According to the rumours; Skralla grew up near the Shores of the Sea of Stars, far from Monglash. She heard the tales of Razig and his undead crew, and has always wanted to join them. Knowing that Razig would never accept her unless she proved herself a true pirate, she raided Aizen Krahl one night and emerged with one of the dwarves' coveted guns and a trail of bearded corpses behind her. Now that she has the guns, the murder, the pillaging, and the rumming down, she has thrown in her lot with Varaug in hopes of meeting Razig one day and joining him. If only she had stolen ammunition, or knew how to load the wretched thing. Still, it serves her well with a blade tied on, and maybe Razig can teach her shooting.
