I really like this!  I like the simplisity you have here.  The colors of the 'bird' are very realistic. I really like the eye, it caught my attention right away and made me think of a crow.  Really makes me want to bring this character to life in one of my games.  Excellent job.

I like the contrast of the dark feathers and the white shirt looks awesome!  I know people have been saying this a lot, but your painting has really been improving.  ^_^

Your color choices here are great and I really like the way your feathers turned out. I'm going to have to pick this model up at some point.

Without a word of a lie this is the second best painted version of this sculpt I have seen. ;-)

 

Seriously great work. You have done excellent highlighting on the feathers and I am seeing a progression with your work. Keep it up.

Thanks, y'all.

 

I don't know if I'm getting any better, but I at least feel I'm not getting any worse. :lol:

He looks great, and I think you did an awesome job on him!  It's actually reassuring to see what a "regular" person's paint job looks like, haha!  Good to know that this awesome sculpt still will look great even if I'm not a Derek-Schubert-level artist.

Agree with everyone else; you did an excellent job on him. You're really a lot better than you give yourself credit for.

Scare quotes necessary in this case. :unsure:

I maybe should stop talking quite like I do, lest folks think I'm fishing for compliments. I'm okay with what I do, but it pales, palely so, but I appreciate what a lot of other folks do more. ^_^

Strong work!  I especially like your subtle handling of the feathers and beak, and the look of concentration that you got in his eyes. 

Keep it up.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the biggest small dragon I ever painted. 03651 Storm Dragon Hatchling sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      This is the metal version of the model, it is mounted on a 74033, 40mm round base. The final highlight on the upper part of the wings is 09294 Alien Goo and 09408 Candlelight Yellow.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a special NPC I painted last night. Originally an Aquatic Elf, I converted her to make her a Drow abjurator accompanied by her black fox.
      I slightly converted 03631, Quoralei from the original model sculpted by Derek Schubert for the Dark Heaven Legends line. I replaced the sea shell she was holding by a spellbook and added a wand in her left hand.
      The 60048, Fox familiar was sculpted by Julie Guthrie, it's originally the familiar of Feiya the Iconic Witch from the Pathfinder line.

      The last of my player characters I painted up for Frostrun is Ophelia Pokitz, a young halfling with sticky fingers.  They're represented here by Bailey Silverbell.
       
      Ophelia was a fun mini as well.  Was my first time painting a humanoid with large facial features, which made it a lot easier to bring definition to the nose, lips, and eyes.  I think I even hit the cheeks with a bit of blush.  I also had fun trying to make their cloak look like it was made of fur.  The result is acceptable, but might also just look snow covered.  You can be the judge.  I also enjoyed painting a rogue that was both colorful, but subdued.  The dark greens and magentas add some much needed life to the otherwise dark mini, in my opinion.
       

       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      Ophelia Pokitz is what you would call a troubled teen.  Orphaned at a young age, Ophelia spent much of their childhood passing from orphanage to orphanage, always finding a way to get kicked out.  They eventually left the system and struck out on their own, traveling to some of the larger cities in search of a better life.  Over the years, Ophelia has learned to use their small size and tiny hands to "reposes" any valuables that aren't bolted down.  This habit has put them on a wanted list in many towns across the countryside.  Pushed further north, Ophelia has found themselves in the town of Harpy's Hearth.  Ignorant of their southern reputation, and full of gold-carrying adventurers, this could be a great place for Ophelia to catch a break and line their own pockets.  It could also be a great place to find a new family.  If they can survive the darkness to come.
