I love the bright, bright colors. She looks like a circus person with a secret sorrow.

 

If I were painting this figure, I would take a muted transparent dark blue and glaze in some gentle shadows in the wrinkles of her garments and where one garment overlaps another.

I like all the colors! Only comment is to watch your lines, your pink kind of flowed into your orange. Maybe hit your paintbrush on your napkin before putting it to the mini. Keep up the good work!

 

I see that after I posted the pictures...   curse that camera...  I will be taking the feedback from the group and adjusting a few things including not thinning my paint so much that it bled over to the skirt

 

Your style is very different than mine And so its hard for me to comment, i would like to see deeper shadows and more definition between parts of the mini.

Dontfear/pingo

 

    I agree... One of my earlier attempts had the dark shadow which I then proceed to wash out as I built up the new colors.   I think pingo is right and I will try to bring back the sahdows using a dark blue glaze after cleaning up some of my lines

 

The colors definitely make me think of the original artwork, but I'd love to see some freehand patterns!!

I have not tried freehand yet but I might attempt some on my next mini. Preferably something with less wrinkles and maybe a bit more forgiving.

Very nice, I like her bright colors! One more suggestion, to add definition to her eyes add a thin line of the darkest skin tone or a dark brown. The technique can be found here http://www.reapermini.com/Thecraft/12

 

The tutorial calls for doing that before painting the rest of the face, but with a steady hand you should be able to get the line on there.

 

She is loverly. Well done

That's a nice colorful mini Robinh.

 

Since everyone else has focused on painting, I'll make one quick little suggestion on the preparation.  The uppermost point of her weapon appears to have a bulge on the side, and the outermost point appears to have impacted something.  A few minutes with a hobby knife or file can give your weapons a nice clean edge, and you can add battle damage if you want.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a special NPC I painted last night. Originally an Aquatic Elf, I converted her to make her a Drow abjurator accompanied by her black fox.
      I slightly converted 03631, Quoralei from the original model sculpted by Derek Schubert for the Dark Heaven Legends line. I replaced the sea shell she was holding by a spellbook and added a wand in her left hand.
      The 60048, Fox familiar was sculpted by Julie Guthrie, it's originally the familiar of Feiya the Iconic Witch from the Pathfinder line.

      This statuesque demon prince has been on my to paint list for a while.  Had fun using non-black blacks on him, skin base is Coal Black (Reaper 9693), highlighted with Coal Black mixed with neutral greys and also Mint Green for the highest highlights.  The base cobblestones are Black indigo (Reaper 9603), with Lava Orange (Reaper 9218) as mortar. Also decided to try out the NMM Gold triad, so all the gold is NMM.

      Here is the Tiefling Sorcerer I just started working on for my next D&D campaign. My lovely wife is a writer and helped me with the backstory. Take a gander at the backstory and let me know what you think if you'd like... Otherwise, just take a look at the figure and follow along.  I've been going back and forth with whether or not I should cut his horns off to fit the backstory or not.

      Another one of the half-painted minis on my painting station shelf, now done:

      Looks like she found a shining stone. Not sure if the OSL worked all that well on this mini. So a gnome is basically a hobbit with boots?

      03823: Day of the Dead Duchess sculpted by Derek Schubert .  I bought this figure a couple of years ago when it first came out but I had a hard time getting a vision of what it should look like.  Then someone asked me to paint it for them, so I went searching for inspiration.  Turns out, there are a lot of people who dress like this for the festival and there are lots of photos, so here's my interpretation.  C&C welcome.
