Thanks Ub3r;

The wildest part was the discovery that I wasn't going for the high Highlights due to the crappy brushes.

When I went to highlight a fold, I could follow the ridge with the brush tip!

Before I had to use the side of the brush. 

Suddenly I wasn't fighting the brush, I was using it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Huge difference.

Jay, you can just integrate that integral base onto your own. Look at how I did Noreth compared to his integral base in the store. I just whipped up a couple little rocks with GS that looked similar to the one he was standing on, added some dirt from the woodpile and a couple tufts. Just glued all that onto a 1" round piece of oak I had lying around.

 

Looking forward to your new adventures with a good brush!

Great Idea Cash;

I'll have to take a look at how Noreth was fitted into your base.

I have been acquiring things I need piecemeal, just got the green stuff,

and the jewelers saw.  Thanks for the information.

Thanks Silvervane;

There is always something new to learn.

Basing is a lot of fun, and now with the new brushes I am beginning to

really up the highlighting, color contrast thing.  I got quite the kick in the butt

from the cloak, and moving the scale up and down.

Really nice work.  The contrast on your cloak is inspiring and like I said on your WIP thread, the contrast of your blues really pop on this mini.  

 

I don't like how obscured the face is by the helmet.  I feel like it makes him more rank and file than dynamic character.  I feel my eye drawn away from his face.

I know the angle of the head obscures the face, and it also made putting in the eyes very difficult.

Not much room in that small grid to get fancy with the face or eyes.

The Cloak and material really give a feeling of fluid movement, and the back of the cloak was

pretty awesome to work on.  All those levels of light and shade.

      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 :)
