I finally finished Jannus!
For those who want it, my WIP is here. I decided to take the very first miniature I ever painted back in 1996 and paint a new version of him with using some of the things I've learned over time, even though I took about a 6 year hiatus from painting in the last 20 years. My goal is to show that yes, practice does improve skill. Also that if you keep painting, you can accomplish some fun and exciting things!
This will be a present for our DM for years of herding us gamer-cats despite our varied schedules!
This was one of reaper's earlier miniatures, sculpted by Sandra Garrity. Gotta love the tiny eyes!
Here are the original and the new version side by side:
I'm finally happy enough with this one to call it finished.
This was my first real attempt at blending, and while there is a bit of stepping in some places I think the piece is still better for the attempt.
I do wish the surface texture was a bit smoother in some places. Perhaps I need to clean my minis better before starting.
All comments and criticism are very welcome.
I'm going to attempt painting a bones High Elf Adventurer as one of my D&D. One of the things he has is kind of cloak of invisibility (it's called something else in the book) and I wanted to make it look like his cloak is phasing out of invisibility kind of similar to this awesome paint job.
Problem is, a forest/dungeon like scene is a bit more difficult to paint as compared to a space scene like this one.
Does anyone have any advice or tips to pull off a similar effect?
