I got this mini in the Mini Painting 101 class at ReaperCon. This was our first ReaperCon - my wife and I took the class together. I’d painted about a dozen minis (badly) for D&D before going to RC.
I like this sculpt, and I wanted to work on improving my basic painting skills. I decided to keep working on her to see how far I can go.
I’ve spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on her already. I do feel like I’m learning a lot though and getting better at controlling my brush and getting paint consistency right.
I broke out one of the good brushes I had bought and not touched - a da Vinci Maestro. I still feel unworthy to use it but maybe it will help me get better.
I’ve done a lot of work on the red armor already, but still need to do some more highlighting. I think I might have overdone the highlights on the green ropes in some places. I was planning to glaze them down and redo a bit smaller.
Thanks for taking a look. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or tips on what I can improve on the parts I’ve worked on already.
Here she is so far - she looks a lot better if you squint.

Alas, the fangs I painstakingly painted in do not show up in the photo.

So finally got around to taking my pictures of my minis from Gencon. I took a bronze for Rumscratch.
I was fairly happy with his little beach there, even if the water doesn't show well on camera.
My elf sailor was also entered, but not judged, since they only judge one of your entries per catagory.
He doesn't look very friendly. He was supposed to though.
I did a Wyrd miniatures speed paint of the Immolated Rhino.
I didn't know anything about this guy other than it was a rhino. Didn't even know the name until just now, so I made it pink. I made it very very pink.
wish I could have come up with something to do with the cracks in his skin. I just kind of ignored them.
this guy is a deep cuts guard. I did him up in a color theory class.
I don't think he turned out too bad considering the size of the brush I used on him.
I'll probably touch him up eventually.
Questions, comments, concerns?
I also took a miniature photography class and as side effect, learned what a few of the icons on my phones camera do.
