Very well done J white is a huge pain

I forgot how painful white was when I decided to do the horse.

I have four (4) shades of white going on all over that pony !

I think I painted the horse alone at least three times over..LOL.

Very well done Mr. Jason and the photographs look great too! ;)

 

Something about those fall leaves that just makes me see the speed in the gallop! I can smell the rush of the fall windows and the horse. Thank you for sharing Mr. Jason.

Ah, you're bringing back memories of when I tried painting a white unicorn with enamel paints!  :;):  I put so many layers of paint on trying to get it smooth that I was starting to seriously lose detail! 

 

Fortunately the elf steals the show with the burnished patina on his armor and his rich blue cloak.  Lovely job once again!  ^_^

Thanks Devin;

You helped me a lot with that photography, and thank you for such a poetic description of

the mini !  Jay

Thank you Littlebluberry;

I can relate to the paint incident,

That touch of orange/brown in the armor color really gave me something to highlight !

The blues were fun to work with.

Ub3r n3rds  reminding me to use my color wheel to get the complimentary colors in the shadows

really paid off there !

You've done a wonderful job with both the horse and rider. I love the base!

Thank you chaoswolf !

It was a lot of fun to do (but white is not for the faint of heart).

I came on the idea of the base since robinh is a fan of orange, and

I had incorporated orange in the plumes, in his armor (tinted with an orange and brown),

and in his kilt, and legging bottoms.  Figured the orange leaves in the base would tie it all together.

Thanks for taking the time to give me feedback !

Thanks everyone for the positive likes.

25 mm mini's are a bit difficult to paint, and especially show,

since they are so small. (1 inch).

Nice job, Jay. White made me put down the brushes for two months during my first year of painting :p

Thanks Cash !

White scares the heck out of me, but it is part of that Rite Of Passage to being a Mini painter.

I recognize that, but wish my knee's didn't buckle when I start !

I feel that way every time I try something daunting, and I've found even when it doesn't work out I learn something and I'm glad I tried.

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      Painted up this cool dwarf.  Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!
