While I am serious about painting this miniature (and am enjoying the challenge),

I am also using the WIP for a secondary purpose.  I was given a gift of a cellphone

that takes photos of an extremely better "pixelation" than my canon camera.  So as

I paint this miniature, I am learning to take photos at the same time. 

So that said...

Here are a few photos of the Mounted Noble Oak Guard.

at 25mm it can be vexing, so I decided that I would paint a white horse (of course),

and then use orange (gotta keep robinh happy), and I'm doing tough color combo's.

(Gotta make it fun).

 

Here are some photos:

cell phone is definitly working.   I can see some lumpy paint on that horse :upside:

 

I am hoping the orange will exapnd into his upper body.. there is just not enough of it yet... :devil:   Say a bright orange plum on his helmet. ^_^

 

I should just send you a package that has a tub orange paint which explodes all over you when you open it, Robin.  ::P:  :devil:

Jay Makes mental. and physical note:  You give them a better photo, and they become art critics !!

Sheesh !

 

Since I am doing autumnal leaves, more than likely some orange leaves will show up on the oak sprig plume !

Gosh, I forgotten how small 25mm is..ROFL.

If I am dressed for a SAR event I doubt I would be able to tell if I got hit by the paint....

 

Welllll...

 

Now that i think about it I suspect I would....Unless the paint was flourescent 10 mile orange it would just but dull spots on my search gear.... :grr:

I have to admit that the better quality photos show off and display my faults just as well..ROFL.

The nicest part is that if I do something right, I will see it.

Both the horse, and the rider have their eyes painted in on these.

Usually on the 25mm I just let it go...this time they both have brown eyes.

There are about nine coats of white on that horse, a dark, and a mid tone, no highlights yet.

Who made this exceptional mini?

 

This is another from Jay's favorite sculptor Tom Meirer and Thunderbolt Mountain. He also puts this in the tags at the top.  ::D:

 

Oh, I saw the "TBM," but didn't know what it stood-for. I often miss tags, it seems. I need to pay more attention to those.

 

Thanks!

No problem!  ^_^

 

Not everyone uses them either, so you are forgiven ... this time.  :devil:  ::P:

      A trio of animated snowmen, definitely up for trouble for the holiday season!
       

       
      Definitely a fun and quick seasonal paint-up. The snowmen are painted up in Reaper Frosty Blue and highlights of Pure White, with Vallejo Azure providing the deep shadows and lining.
       
      The bases are dead simple, using the same colors and some Americana crackle medium for a subtle cracked ice effect.
       

       
      I really like how the monocle came out on the top hat snowman!
       

       
      I think of the three, the candy cane carrying snowman is my favorite.  His derpy upturned face is visible from anywhere across the table, and the tattered Santa robe came out quite well.  My daughter suggested that the end of the candy cane should be spattered with blood effects, but then my wife would never let me  put it in a holiday display!
       


      I went back and forth on the color of the hair for the bowler hat snowman.  I was going to repaint it black, but tried changing the color in a paint app, and didn’t like it.
       
      I did one last thing to tie the trio together — I gave them matching scarves!  My daughter took one look and said: “They’re in a gang!” — she got it!
       
      Happy holidays, everyone!
