I think you are being too hard on yourself.  I like what you have done.  The body has some really nice transitions and I do like what you did with the base.  The eyes are also very cool.  

 

Maybe set it aside for a bit and come back to it.  you might have a new perspective

I agree with this 100%.

And I love the basing, you achieved a perfect mud effect!

Great job!  the colors are lovely- that pink-green-blue is a really nice combo.  Just rest and enjoy him.  If you want, pick him back up in a few months and see how you feel.  Time always helps me think.  But you should be proud of him.  He's huge!!!  And painted!!!  Awesome!

Very Nice, and great colors and transitions.

I LOVE the brown base and what you did with you.

Emphasis in on the Mini (or maxi in this case) like it should be!

Great job

I think he looks great; the color flucuations throughout his skin are perfect, and the transition into the tentacles also looks great.  I'm not sure the eyes read as OSL to me, but rather just a cool color transition, so it totally works.

 

From what I can see of the wings, they look good too.  No reason to be unhappy with the base.  I think it's effective, but doesn't draw attention away from the model, which is what you want.

 

If you want constructive criticism, the one area I think falls a bit short compared to the rest is the green spikes.  They look a bit flat next to the great job on the skin.  Perhaps a minor bit of shading (to help define the separation between the spikes/webbings) might be all you need to do to help.

      The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb.  Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance.  A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall.  Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
       
      The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal.  On top sits a small box.
       
      Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box.  He lifts the lid and peers inside.
       
      "Ah, there's my old minis!"
       
      Who's Your Mummy?
       
      Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet.  This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.

       
      These mummies were one of my first large painting projects.  It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously.  They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power.  After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.

      Just a quick picture.  They're not special but I am trying to get my paint count up this year so just before reapercon I chose 20 miniatures I had no special attachment to and went about getting them painted.  Most of them are destined to appear in my Christmas village as townsfolk
       

      The rocky was a bonus from Mocha's paint a rocky class.  I thought he came out great!
       
      Not part of the 20 but because I haven't shown them yet, the swine mafia needed to have a word with the vegetable hauler.  Apparently he hadn't hired pigs to load his cart...

      I just cannot get this mini to come out the way I want.  This is my second attempt, and I got just a stuck as the first time.  I finally decided to just finish it and call it done.

      This is the Reaper Bones Dire Bear (SKU 77494).  This was another test of contrast paint, this time over a base of skin color.  I think it turned out pretty good, and it was fast, which is always a plus when trying to conquer the mini mountain.
