Wow! That looks really awesome Jasper, and it's so far out of the norm of what we're used to seeing. Kudos!

It's astounding! You leveled up on this wondrous piece for sure. Love it!

 

Very happy to have helped provide some info to you and that you got all the figures you needed. I knew that you'd put 110% into the piece after our little chat too.

Great work! You've stepped it up a couple of notches! Great interpretation of the idea as well, two thumbs up!

 Nice...

 

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.

Amazing piece. Well worth the effort I think.

 

It also shows how much you can do with mini's if you use your imagination.

      Ten of the 23 minis I’ve painted since my post in March. 
       
      Monsters = tabletop
      Humanoids = above tabletop
       
      Sinisthreax (14634) is an ultra-complicated sculpt. He’s a noctiny (5e kobold press) recurring villain in my dnd game. You’ll note one eye is normal along with that side of his face. 
       
      Silas (03010) the human cleric I wanted to dingy up with blood spatter. I imagine his name is Bret and he does not appreciate being called a heal-bot. 

      The Dragonborn (Wizkids), half-orc (red box games) and deep gnome (Bones) are all new players in my dnd game which has grown from 3 players to 7 in rapid order. 
       
      Narbaz is a tiefling from Red Box Games and I like the OSL I got from below, but not from the staff. I really just got sick of it and called it done.

      Here is a Vulture Demon that I have used my newest Iwata airbrush on. I am very pleased with how he came out. He is on a 50mm base and is made of metal from Reaper. I had to bent the wings into an interesting pose, but I like where this guy ended up. :)

      Been working on a new game for dungeon crawling, and have settled with predominantly Reaper miniatures for my personal use (and for use in game component imagery, etc.).  Second post here, so apologies if I fumble the image stuff a few times.

      Been a while since I posted a show-off....hopefully I'll be more productive painting this year. Of to a good start, I've already painted more than double my total for last year....
       
      I've started painting up some of the Star Wars Legion figures I've been picking up from my lfgs for the last half year or so. I started with a unit of Stormtroopers out of the starter box.  These were supposed to be a nice super quick tabletop paint job to get the year started. While they were a quick tabletop paint job, that quick ended up being spread over 2 months....hopefully I will get better at getting some painting in more often over the next couple of months.
       

      The whole unit.
       

      Standard troopers.
       

      Commander and specialists.

      Presenting Amiri, she's an Iconic Barbarian from Reapers Pathfinder line.
       
      Had this one a little while, but all the fiddly bits kept putting me off (and I normally like fiddly minis), she turned out to be super fun to paint though.
       
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
