Shading look nice, but a more straight on photo would be nice too.  I have no idea myself about the mini.  But, I think you did a bang up job!

A more Straight on photo will will only show you an elbow.

I tried taking photos of the face, and sadly the arm is blocking you from seeing anything ::(:

Thank You Limey72 !

It might be GW1980... hmmmm....

I have to do some research on that :;):

Its a great miniature ! 

I love the detail, I have to accept that it is old, and this isn't the "modern casting methods available" now.

Nicely done Jay.  

 

I think a photo taken at the same height/level as the mini is what people are looking for and not a staright on of the face.   I would love to look at her from the front and back to get a better impression of the clothing and gear she is carrying.

 

I am also loving your tendency to do red heads... apparently my needling you to use orange has paid off!  :upside:

I see if I can pull off a few photos from a lower vantage point.

I'm actually having fun with the Orange hair..

Its amazing how many colors you can get going, and with a bit of matte varnish, it really perks up.

Its fun to mix in other colors as well, to form shadow colors.

Better.. now if you can go down on bended knee...

 

(wait thats a proposal!!!)... :blush:

 

I mean lower the camera by another 4 inches  so you are level with the table surface

(or even low enough that you are pointing the camera up at the mini)

we would be able to see all of that detail straight on.   ^_^

There is NO way I can do that Robin.

My set up will give nothing but a lot of blur.

I guess that now is the time to update my photo shop capabilities !

Once my friends wedding is finished, and I recover from doing the ceremony, and speaking at it on Saturday.

I'll start looking at enhancing my photo taking ability.

Too much on my plate for the next couple of weeks.

Well as the person overseeing that wedding I will give you a pass this time.

 

Enjoy the cermony and remember... after all of the vows have been said the Officials at the weeding can enjoy the reception and a dance with the bride too!

 

PS Don't sweat the speech I suspect you have that in the bag!

ROFL.. I'm glad ONE of us is optimistic !

This is going to be one of the toughest and most important chats I do.

Shudder... I'm trying to get it under control.

AND start another mini (hey, I have my priorities going..ROFL).

You did a great job on her!

 

I'm not positive, but I'm inclined to agree that this might be an early Citadel/GW figure. The staff looks a lot like something that their high elves would have carried.

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      Painted up this cool dwarf.  Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!
