Very nice! I especially like the wings a lot!

 

What sealer did you use? I'm sure someone can give you some really great suggestions for cutting down on the shine.

I may have to get me some, I used reaper's MSP brush on sealer.

 

as do I, with same effect (a bit of shine, not much, but enough to notice). I try to take pics with indirect lighting to reduce the shine effect. On a dark colored mini like this it can be challenging - try a slightly darker background so white-balance on the camera doesn't flip out. (Or try to edit exposure or white balance metering mode directly if your camera supports it.)

 

Great looking mini.

Beautiful wings!

I use Testor's "Dullcote" spray varnish as a final coat to take the gloss off my minis.

^^This^^ The wings are awesome! Dullcote is pretty magical stuff.

Thinning the Reaper brush on sealer a bit will help knock down a bit if the shine. It says matte but I've found it to be more of a satin finish. I like to use the reaper brush on because it will provide a harder finish, great if your minis are going to be handled for gaming. Then I go back over that after its dried for a day or two with the dullcote.

      I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc.  
       
      But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome!
       
      C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      Hello forum friends, wanna share with ya'll my most recent painted mini. We have a lot of time atm to hobby hard! :D
      Tryed new tecnics on this bad boy (well new for me) like loaded brush, mixing colors right on the mini etc. Took me way less that layering and glazing, obvious the quality is lower, but still good IMHO.
      The palette of choice is the most natural possible, lot of oranges and browns, but also some punchy color like the blue of the hairs and a bit of red.
      Also used some dry pigments on the base... not good result, but still accetable for tabletop.



      Any C&C is welcome, let me know if you like it.
      Thanks for watching :)
