I have been working on a project in blender, and could use some criticism. Unfortunately, I haven't converted this to a JPEG, but I will change it out as soon as it is possible. One of the things that is horrible with sculpting in 3d is that the details can become faded or nonexistent when the print is made, but with a 16 micron resolution almost all of the details you see should make it. The head is missing right now, and the arms and hands are just being set up for general shape before I can get into detail work. Some armor doesn't have support behind it if you look closely.

I am sorry if this should have gone in sculpting, if so I would appreciate if a mod would move it.

I like it! It needs detailing though. Things like fastenings on armor, the loin cloth part doesn't make much sense as to how it is attached, think about functionality, things should look like they could be worn and were meant to taken off and put on. The cloth has nice movement and the pose is very castable.

Thanks. If you have seen the metal sash that the privateer press housguard thane has, that is going to connect the two things connecting the cloth, if that makes any sense, wrapping over the shoulder and returning to the back around the underarm. The loincloth is going to be connected under the over hang, but how would you suggest I change it to look better, make more sense? Fastenings for the armor will just go in the logical places later on. Does that sound good, or could I do something more interesting with the cloak? Out of curiosity, how would it be cast? I don't think you could do it in a single piece, and I would need to simplify a lot with the cloth.

Cloth isn't the problem. The problem is the legs. Cut them off at the knees and they could be cast up with the head and arms. 2-3 molds for the whole thing. I would run the mold line around the edge of the back part of the cloth and bury the leg stumps in an under cut, then run it up his sides. The way you explained how the cloth works makes sense you just have to sell it, that is pretty minor too. I think the worst problem is actually the lack of texture on the hands, it should have something to look like gloves or it should be detailed to look like hands, i dunno if thats something you meant to get around to though.

      I'm very happy with how the skin tone turned out on this mini.

      Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
       
      I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.
       
      My current projects in various stages on my desk. 

       
      And just the pinup after some prep work 

       
      A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out. 
       

       
      I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
       
      And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme. 

       
      Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
       
      Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
       
      Happy painting everyone.

      So I needed an NPC - and this Bones V townsfolk called to me as a low level mage. He is supposed to be a ship's mage, helping dvinine weather and sea creatures, so I choose blue and then tried freehand silver symbols. My lack of freehand skill and patience quickly showed up! But he's good for the table and was done in time to use. He looks a bit worried - which fits the character

      I’m starting my first of the kid heroes from the Bones 5 core set.  I really like the character design with the sharp looking long coat, cool hair and bone sword.
       

       
      I want to do something different with the skin on this one.  I want to paint them as a moon elf, with cool undertones and warmer highlights.
       
      im going to try basecoating with a blue and highlight up to pinkish highlight.  Not sure if this is going to work.
       
      Starting with a basecoat of ritterlich:dark elf at about 1:1.
       

       

       
       
      This is along the lines of what I’m going for with the skin.  Putting this here for reference.

      The merfolk in Dark Depths sculpted by Bobby Jackson were one of the things I was most looking forward to in Bones 5.
       
      I chose the Mermaid Ranger for my RCL Q3 Large Group “Under the Sea”, and started work on her after ReaperCon.
       
      I've been trying to make bolder color choices, and thought this was a great mini to push myself in that direction.
       
      I’ve posted some WIPs on discord, but wanted to record the process here in a bit more detail.

      First I primed both rangers with Badger neutral primer, and then basecoated the tails and hair with 0963 Coal Black
       

       
      Then I tried to airbrush the tails with 09330 Wild Violet while leaving some dark shadows.
