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.

      For this miniature I wanted a not pure black and red miniature. It's sort of my go to and wanted to change it up a little.
       
      From start to finish I have included images.
       
      I did take more images than these but I wanted to not have a mile long post. Besides ill have a video up soon for this.
       
      Why blue? Because I thought the blue would greatly contrast against my usual colors of black and red. It also posed a challenge on how to do it AND make it look good when finished.



       
      The last photo doesn't do it justice to be fair.

      Hey guys, me again. This time I am back with a anti paladin I did after a few weeks off to pursue some other things I needed to get done.
       
      I really like how the colors turned out on this one. I was intending for a black suit of armor, but I ended up giving him a sort of Dracula red armor by accident. Only thing I feel i could of done different or improved on was to use less red and more of another color. However I don't have a clue what that other color would of been to be honest.
       
      The photos show the progression, black armor, painted with red. I wanted to give the appearance of black armor caked in the blood of his enemys, while making the cape clearly blood stained on the front where it made sense to be but not on the back. The shield I was aiming for the look of it and the sword being made out of bone but also caked in the well you know I don't need to keep saying it. I feel like the base of the mini could of done with a better paint job but again I wasn't sure the color to use so I went with green grass since I feel like that would make the most sense.

      So one of my campaign encounters calls for a skeleton playing a violin. I had a few ideas on how I could go about accomplishing this. Modifying a skeleton miniature to hold a violin. Then I found this mini. I really wish they had a version that wasn't metal for this miniature though.
       
      The mini in question is supposed to be the boss of an encounter the players run into which leads into bigger plots later. In short though its supposed to be dripping a black ichor from the eyes to make it scarier and to emphasis the point "this is a powerful enemy" and not just some random skeleton bard.
       
      The actual painting went along the lines of
       
      White base coat, followed by coloring the violin and leather straps brown, the metal armor black, i did a wash of brown followed by a black to give contrasting colors of dirt and mold. I also added a small amount of a lighter blue as a wash to the violin and bow to make it contrast ever so slightly from the rest of the mini and to hopefully give it a sort of magical look. That last part didn't succeed like I had hoped but it was a good lesson in what does and what does not work.
       
      I know the base needs something else to make it pop. This mini isn't "finished" yet for that very reason but im not sure how i want to finish the base of the mini. Probably some dirt. because dirt is always a good choice for a graveyard. I really should change my name to the "painting horror minis channel" because its an unintentional theme.

      I decided to paint my kobolds I've been holding onto. I did the paint on them in about 4 hours which is pretty good for 6 miniatures I think!
       
      Also am I allowed to link to a video I made where I painted them?

      I'm very new to airbrushing but I've been working hard to get better at it.  Here is the Star Spawn of Cthulu, from the board game Mansions of Madness.  The plinth with the flame on it used to be the stand from a Bones Giant Scorpion.  Now used to hold sacrifices in place for the consumption of the evil ones.
