I really like what you did with him, Jay. He's very well done and so is the basing!

 

The cloak stands out to me with the shimmery look to it, the metalwork is nice and again, the base is really cool!

He is great, the white fur is very well done, and I love the grass tufts sticking up through the snow. One little nitpick, the green highlighting on the robe could be smoother and have even more contrast.

Thanks UB3R !

The big problem now for me (thanks to YOU) is I start looking at a basing theme and say.. "ITS NOT good enough"..ROFL.

I keep on raising that bar about what is acceptable for me.  I like the "Heavy Snow Feeling" on the basing. 

The white was a real challenge, as was the shadows. 

This is a tightly sculpted mini !

Thanks Citrine !

I've been working on NOT getting Chalky highlights, think I have discovered the addition of brush on sealer makes that chalky look not

occur.  Browns, and greens can get pretty blerg when they get that off white/non color look !

Appreciate your comment, and "Nit-Pick". :;):

Love the cape!

The metal ball on the end of the staff is a bit unusual, but nice.

 

I have this mini in my 'waiting for the courage and skill' pile.

I hope I can do it half this well.

Thank you for your extremely kind words.  Its all just a matter of practice, and learning.  Challenge yourself,

and above all listen to what the members of this forum tell you.  You will be amazed at the genius, kindness, and

incredible skill of your fellow Reaperites.  These folks will never steer you wrong, and soon you will be painting complex

characters, with aplomb, and gusto !  I make it a point to NOT look at what someone else paints a character like,

so my mini's reflect how I see them.  Last thing I want to do is clone someone else !  I learn NOTHING that way !

 

Lovely, jasonator. He was a lot of fun to paint up, and you take on him is quite pleasant to look at.

Thank you Silvervane !

I am glad that you enjoyed how I painted him up.  I couldn't believe I chose the white instead

of another color.. Had a lot of fun playing with that ! Appreciate your comment, and kindness !

UBERCOOL! The gold skull cap brings Merlin from Excalibur to mind. That aside, the Wizardly Bunny is BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Thank You Malefactus.

This was so much fun to do.  I must admit that since I have started taking my time to learn NEW skills;

I spend a lot of time looking at how I "COULD" do something, and then choosing another venue to walk down.

I've gotten very critical about what I do thanks to the high skills of my fellow forumites. 

I'm not happy unless I feel challenged by what I am doing.  I even cut the broccoli off this mini just so I could

peg and mount it differently. :upside:

I'm forcing myself to grow.

Yeah, I've noticed the helpfulness of this forum.

(I know of two other forums that are on par with this; the ShapeOko forum, and the Parallax forum -that's CnC and hobby electronics respectively. both are backed by companies that put customer service first, just like Reaper. There may be a common denominator there?)

 

I do look at other's work, but mostly to try to steal ideas on technique.

How to properly paint fur is one thing that I'm looking to get a handle on.

      A ranger I painted up for someone's first ever D&D character. His name is Bad Dog, he was raised by wolves. Also, first real attempt at doing some basing, added some mud to a spare base I had printed and also muddied up his boots a bit.

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Bunny Girls, modeled by Brother vinnie. Need I say more?
       
      There's also a set of bunnies to choose for those who need a familiar or just to add to a diorama.

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.
