I've been seeing this in my box of goodies for a very long time.

I avoided painting it after several other members did theirs.

My turn !

 

I'm heading towards the greens for the cloak, and will wing it for the other components.

Love the dynamics of this Sculpt.

Was a BEAR to glue together though!

 

He has been washed, and primed.

I really like this sculpt. Rated it pretty highly in a review and had a lot of fun converting and painting mine.

 

This is the one I painted- (spoilered to avoid confusion)

Thank you for clearing up the confusion.

You did one heck of a job on this..

It is amazing to me how easy it is to start painting a miniature when the temperature outside is 18F, with high winds..ROFL.

 

I was going NO where this morning; except to my paint desk with my mornings coffee !

 

I am adoring this sculpt.  Dynamic is an understatement !

I painted in the blue eyes and the flesh base on the face and hands.

I also lined the figure.

I know that there are many opinions of how to line, what to line, and where to line.

I use my lining to isolate and highlight for my eye, those portions of the figure that I want to accent, and isolate.

The plumes, armor details, the deep folds (with their extreme highlighting).  I also use it as a balancing tool

to draw my eye around the sculpture like I want my paint to do. 

I get a feeling of balance with the figure.

 

You may or may not follow what I mean here, but it is what I am doing in my head.

 

Enough explanation.  Here is the next stage in my painting of the High Elf Warrior.

It is amazing the motivation that horrendous weather conditions can supply. He of Pointy Ears is coming along VERY NICELY. Having recently seen a painted version of Himself over on L.A.F., I know just how cool he can be. Have FUN with the Elf...no double entendre in tended.

I was pretty upset yesterday when everything BUT the library closed with around 2' of snowfall. I mean, I'm prepared for it with my 4WD, snowthrower and wood stove, but still...I was hoping to have a day to sit by the wood stove and paint!

 

I understand what you're saying about lining. I can get caught up in it, too, helps get a feel for the sculpt and direct your value choices later on.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8107, Joey the Thug - Sheltie Rogue was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used tree bark and sand on its 40mm diameter base.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8083, Harrek the Otter Cleric was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used a natural river rock as promontory on its 40mm diameter base. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!

      Hello forum Family, gonna show you my version of D'Vandra Lukesia, the metal one. I had hard time with her (but this is part of the fun, isn't?), so many tiny details and her face is sooo tiny 
      In any case I managed to paint her and I'm happy of she came out! 
      About the palette I chose the colors on the fly, started with the yellow skirt and simply add colors at the moment I needed to paint a detail, like the amaranth scarf, or the blue bag, the green vial, and so on.
      I hope you like her too :)
