Nice, good colour choices.

 

Curious to see what you will do to the base, be sure to post that too.

Obviously he will paint some trees on it with his handy pallet knife.  ::):

Love it, it looks good. But I think I'll be really liking that gem in her spear(?) when you get the better lighted pictures up!

 

 

Welcome to the forums, and I look forward to seeing more from you!

Oh wow. Great work on the gem and her eyes!

 

Hey thanks! If you like them now, you'll love 'em when I get some better pics.

Thanks! They were my first stab at doing gems. I was pleasantly surprised by how well she turned out, wishing I cleaned up the model a little better before I started. I was just going for "tabletop" but got really into the model and ended up at "tabletop-plus" (by my standard).

Great first post and welcome to the forum! 

 

As a side note:  Happy Trees!  Wonderful avatar as well. 

 

(yes, I have been painting trees this week, using that exact phrase!)

This is becoming a WIP... (feel free to move, Mods)

 

Here is the beginnings of the base. My first attempt working with green stuff. I went with a wooden board theme for her "infamous" RotRL encounter in the clocktower.

I couldn't get them as squared off as I'd have liked.... I'm not sure if that was a fault of the material, tools, or user. ;)  Hopefully a convincing paint job will sell them as wood despite the rounded ends.

I'll post again when I get them painted.

don't worry about the rounded ends....these show usage.    If you ever visit a real old house with the original hand milled flooring you will probably find locations in well used rooms that are in a similar state.  They did not throw stuff out but used in where it was needed.  So kitchens/servant locations (less formal spots like tower floors) got the not quite perfect pieces.

Lovely work ^_^ The dark blue hair is quite striking. I think I may try that with a mini :blush:

 

And I think we're all influenced by Derek's work :lol:

      Sometimes, I feel really out of place posting a mini I painted as some of you guys are scary good mini painters, but I am just so darn happy with this mini and had such a blast painting her I wanted to share! And you can't improve if you don't try! Right? So introducing Pucket, the Halfling Paladin of Lliira. Aside from the gnome from LTPK this is my first Hero type mini. She's my character for my next campaign and I ordered her on HeroForge. There just aren't enough dancing halflings out there.
       
      I tried a lot of new techniques I've been reading about and am pretty pleased with the results. Her eyes look sort of like eyes! The bottle looks vaguely like there is something inside of it! I did totally chicken out on the armor, I was going to try to paint the decorative bits a different color but just didn't trust my hand/eye coordination enough. 
       
      Now I just have to figure out a background reason for her to have purple hair and a shiny blue scabbard that my DM will actually buy. 
       
       

       
      Also, can someone tell me how to do that thing where you drop photos under a banner you have to click to expand?

      I finished the last of the LTPK2 minis! The last one I did was Hajad the Pirate. About half way through I realized my brush skills were not up to the task on blending the shadows and highlights properly so I decided to exaggerate them instead so he came out looking a little comic book arty.  I am pretty happy with the end result but this mini was mostly a lesson in how much I need to practice building up thin layers  and blending. Also he was an epic eye failure, so he's a blind pirate. C'est la vie
       
      Either way, he was a lot of fun!

      It's been a slow few weeks painting wise because work wise has been crazy but I almost finished with the LTPK2. Here is Ingrid. I am pretty pleased with her and feel like I learned a LOT. She also has the best eyes I've been able to manage thus far. Everything else either gets just a black dot or no eyes at all. 
       
      I apologize for the bad pictures, I am working on getting a proper background set up but for right now I just hold them up to the light and take a photo and hope it comes out well.

      I’ve decided to start this creepy eye beast monster! So far I’ve primed the main body with Blue Liner and have blocked out the eyes in Rosy  Pink, he’s totally going to have pink eyes because that makes me laugh and the rest of him will hopefully end up in shades of purple and blue

      So here's my latest creation. I tried a different technique this time around by "overbrushing" for the the highlights on the skin and it was . . . ok. I can see it as a great way to speed the process along for a speedier paint job, and might be great for painting armies and units, but it does have its limits when it comes to blending. I'm also not sold on the blending in the armor as it did not blend real smoothly despite my best attempts but its a start at least. As always, any ideas, suggestions, critiques, feedback, etc. are most appreciated!
