looks good... but sorry.. I could not guess at what it said and even after checking the spoiler I had to concentrate to see where you were going with the letters.  :huh:

Looks good, But the logo isn't that visible.

 

IMHO the letters should have a little more space between them and they should be a bit thinner, now some letters touch the next making it difficult to see.

The skull on the back is very good.

Red on black doesn't show so well. It breaks a general rule of heraldry with regard to metals and regular colors when designing a charge. If your background is a solid then the charge or logo should be a metal, which is white (silver) or yellow (gold). These guidelines were established to maximize the visibility of a charge at a distance.

 

Now if each of the red letters were outlined in white.....

HAHAHA!!!  In one glance I knew it was SLAYER!  Probably because I am a huge fan and have seen the logo thirty times each morning in my closet for years...

 

Anyway, the mini has a slash vibe going on with the hair and glasses.

 

Not sure what the rest of the band looks like but if they are all metal heads a nice diorama of them fighting off the zombie hordes of the PMRC would work.

Thanks for the replies and advice, everyone. It looks like I've still got a ways to go with this whole free handing thing. Gotta start somewhere, though, right?

Cool!! I wasn't too sure how good it looked; I figured if anyone would get it, it'd be a metal head! \m/

 

Yep, the rest of band looks similar, they're definitely metal heads. That is a very interesting idea for a diorama...

I love to see some Reaper Minis depicting proper Headbangers.

 

Not the punk rock musicians they have now.

 

I want them to have long hair, and metal studs on their jackets and a bald leadsinger with ammo belt, chains and such.

 

Maybe a Gothic Female Singer in a gown..

Some of the better ones, IMO, are still the old gw ork rockers.

 

So much character, so much awesomeness.

I've been trying to get a complete set of those just about forever.

I couldn't remember what they were called earlier...Goffic Rockers i believe.

 

I use to have a set of them from their original release.

 

Gw re-released them a few years back, I looked for mine and couldn't find them.

      Continuing with my showcase of old Player Characters for Frostrun, we have Nox, the Drow Bard, represented by Astrid, Female Bard.
       
      Nox was a fun challenge and one of the few times that I played around with color palettes online, and tried out some test drawings to really decide on colors and patterns ahead of time.  Settled on black and dark grey for the main colors, with red for pattern accents, and purple for a dash of flavor.  I feel it lands properly in the category of a dark entertainer without reading too much like a Harley Quinn knock-off.  Though the player she was designed for loves Harley so I'm sure the similarities were appreciated.


       
      Reverse side under the spoiler:
       
      Nox is a Drow Bard and a newcomer to Frostrun.  Nox left behind her home in the Underdark to seek out a life of adventure and fame as a traveling entertainer, but soon found herself on the wrong side of the law.  With nowhere else to go, Nox has turned towards Frostrun, the edge of civilization.  A place where people are judged not by their past, but by their ability to survive.  Unfortunately, a dark force has threatened her one chance at redemption.  Will Nox rewrite the tale and come out a legend?  Or will darkness have its way and leave her as a footnote in someone else's song?
       
       
      Read her story and check out the rest of the Frostrun project HERE.

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      Painted for one of my Player characters. Almost a speed paint. Original goal was to get done quickly, but started to take a little more time with her than I planned.

      I felt like a slightly less involved project after Vlad, so I decided to paint Elliwyn Heatherlark. 
       
      I swapped her weapon with a gladius from the Agema Romans and also decided to give her a more interesting item than the small shield she originally carried.
       
      As it happened it got again more involved, as I sculpted a Nure-onna,  basically a snake with a human head, that she defeated in battle.
       
      Worked out well with the pose and provided me with the opportunity to experiment with gore effects.
       
      C&c very welcome. You also find the WIP thread here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89770-elliwyn-heatherlark-gnome-bard-77164/
