My only critique, being something of a theatre person and familiar with lights - Spotlights, particularly with colored filters in them, tend to wash out both shadows and highlights where they hit, but make the shadows look darker where they don't... (This is why you generally have several lights pointed at the same area from different directions during a show - not unlike photographing a mini, really.) For example, in your piece, the light from the overhead spot(s) isn't going to be hitting directly under their armpits or directly under the brim of his hat. The few tiny areas where even the reflected light isn't hitting should go all the way down to straight black.

Other than that, damn good job on the monochrome.

It's too bad you had a deadline on this - the band would have looked amazing with a similar low level of lighting and an individual spotlight on each band member...


So, did you have as much fun as I did trying to get that damn snake off his arm? lol :rolleyes:

(At least you got to just chop off the cane.)

I did a similar conversion of him for the special challenge part of the  March Resolutionary Painting Challenge, although I didn't finish him in time... I hacked off the snake and the beads on the other arm and whittled his cane down into a shillelagh, then greenstuffed over the chain at his waist into a holster strap and added a holstered gun and a shamrock-shaped badge to be an LEP inspector, painted pretty much all in subdued shades of green.

      This was from a couple months ago; I was pretty unsure what I wanted to do with it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, particularly given that I think I only had three different colors of blue paint in bottles, and two of them were pretty similar.

      Watch out this time of year for this fellow, he'll come riding in with the blizzards!

      Catching a bit of a 1970's version of A Christmas Carol while channel hopping today reminded me that I still had these gals to paint:-

      I was planning on extending Presents base with putty but mine had dried up (Plus I'm not sure I would've had much success reproducing that wooden plank look anyways), so she's going to look a little weird (Although she already looks a little weird in her pirate cosplay).
      Just waiting on them to dry, and then, hopefully, I can start painting them tomorrow.
      Won't get them finished by Christmas, I'll probably still be working on them well into January, but I should be able to finish them eventually.

      and the last of this month's work, pretty sure can't see another one out of me with only half a day left. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.
