That is a nice clean paint for a first model. Look to add more highlights and depth on future models, even if it's just one extra step at a time.


There are good links to tutorials in this forum as well as good examples of painting.


The main thing to remember is practice as this is how you will improve.

Great job for your first figure!

Other than the eyes, which you mentioned, and others have addressed, that's a pretty solid job.

You'll get better with every mini you paint.

But the main thing, Enjoy it..

Very, very true.

A most excellent job well done. On the subject of eyes, you gotta start somewhere, give that guy some eyes. Monster eyes are awesome to start out with, a solid color looks good on them and you can always add a pupil later when you're feeling more confident. Welcome to the forums and hobby. If your having fun, you're doing it right.

I know a fair number of Fellows who have been painting for years & never done an eye. You are a natural. Your creation benefits from some SPLENDID brushwork, GREAT looking metals & FINE skin tones. The eyes & some more elaborate groundwork will come in time; in the interim, you've earned a VERY WELL DONE!

      Presenting Tirinha Fallowheart, a Dreadmere faction mini made by Reaper.
      Didn't put much effort into this one, it's a nice mini but I think mine is a bit miscast (her details are a little soft and mushy in places).

      Presenting Sakana (Not sure if this is the regular or veteran version), a member of the Fisherman team from the, now defunct, game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games.
      This guy was one of those weird Guild Ball minis where I'm not quite sure what's going on with their outfit, I still can't figure out if he's wearing a roll-neck vest or just has a odd neck and, now looking at it in piccy form, I'm pretty sure the top half of his trousers aren't actually trousers.
      He still came out okay though.

      Presenting the veteran version of Minx, a character in the sadly now defunct game of Guild Ball by Steamforged Games.
      She's being sitting in the 'Cupboard Of Unfinished Things' for a couple of years now, so it feels good to finally get her finished.
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
