Good job, Jay! I really like the base and the color palette you chose for her. My only critique is that the skin looks a bit rough in places, not sure if that's from dried paint pebbling on you or if she's just got some roughness to her cast.

She looks good man.  I want to know where those flowers came from though.  Do tell!

 

Likewise on the skin--glad to hear any tricks to avoid that (though last time it was because I didn't clean the dust off them well enough to prime..).

There is a rough granularity to the blade casting, and I had to play with it A LOT to get it untwisted, and to look somewhat natural.

I thought about filing it, but was way to soft to attempt, and risk a snap off ::(:

Flowers came from Scenic Express...Chain your wallet before you go looking for the site.. $$$ goes zing when you look at catalog.

I use my flesh tones in a 50/50 (paint/water) mix.  I apply MANY coats to ensure that they are smooth.

In this case, the mini was pitted, and nubby, so that over rode any care that I have taken.

I hope that you scrub your mini's with a tooth brush and soap before priming them...

always a smart move !

Thank You Malefactus !!!

You made me smile with your comment.

I just varnished the miniature, and that covered over a lot of the roughness of the casting.

I also wanted to comment on the leg armor.

I painted it first with a coat of Grey Gunmetal, let that dry.

then came back over it with a very watered down light green (to fill in the plains).

I then came back over with a 50/50 coat of old gold on the design.

Then a final coat of 5050 gold as a highlight.

I really like the effect of that on the armor. (I did use a coating of brown liner on it to begin with).

She's a cute little thing. I like her brassy armor and the pretty flowered base.

I really like her hair. Very pretty colors go well with the colors on her base.

Thanks Pochi;

Doing her hair was a lot of fun, I've recently started to appreciate doing red hair,

I was planning on the flower base, so I was looking at colors that would react to the red and purple phlox base !

I really worked on that armor Pingo, and so glad you picked up on it.

The base was a hoot to do.

(oh, and I decided to add some new paint trays (acrylic nail polish holders), made me get the basing done, so I could clean up the mess).

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 
       

       

       

       
      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

       
      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

       
      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
