well done Jay...an Orange Tabby priest..puuurrrfect!

 

You have definitely been stepping up to the plate lately.. nice OSL and fancy base.  How did you do the flowers?

 

::o:

Thanks RobihH;

The flowers are from SCENIC EXPRESS.  They have a whole pile of flower sheets to select from.

I was originally planning on painting the grass, using a toothpick with glue to create nubs, and then paint

them into different flowers.  This was a lot easier/quicker. 

The tabby was a lot of fun !

Wonderful work, Jay!!

 

Love seeing you continue to get better and better and push yourself.

Thanks UB3R !

I have to admit that it is wonderful that my son is a fan of my painting of Miniatures.  I can experiment, and challenge myself on his dime...LOL

The anthropomorphic mini's are a great learning tool since it combines what you KNOW, with what you DON'T know.  I know what clothes and cloaks etc. look like, but how am I going to paint this hedgehog, tabby cat, Lion ?  The myriad of things you can do with them is mind boggling.  Then toss in the basing.  Ever since I started clipping off the broccoli base my enjoyment of this hobby has really magnified.  Playing with techniques gives me an added sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.  So thank you, I'm enjoying all these challenges !

Nice color scheme, excellent basing, love the fur, details on the edge of the robe are quite nice as well.

 

Quick suggestion:

 

Flames tend to be dim near the tip of the flame rather than brightest there. (It's more complex than just hot at bottom and cool at top, but it's related to that.) If you were to use yellow near the middle and reds and browns at the tips, I think the flame would be more convincing.

Thanks for the advice Doug !  Really appreciate it.

Besides the Yellow/Orange thing going on, the hot/cold..so much to remember doing flames.

Appreciate your sharing your experience with me.  Noted in my note book now...

Thanks again !

SPLENDID! The Little Spell Slinging Feline is rich with character...BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. You just keep getting better with each new piece. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank You Malefactus.

Your inspiration and kind words always eggs me on to try another miniature, and see how much fun I can have bringing him to life.

Your zest for our hobby also contributes to my delight when I see your zany and evocative creations.  You spur me on to keep trying new things also.

Thanks again.

One of your best!

 

I like the OSL, the fur and those flowers on the base are a great touch!

 

Keep those Anthros coming!

Thanks Xherman1964;

I am actually totally enjoying doing these little critters.

They are NOT easy. Cute may look simple, but it isn't.

My next Miniature that I started working on today is "The Hedge Hog Bard"... its small;

but it has such fantastic details, and magnificent basing opportunities.  I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Your enthusiasm is so greatly appreciated !

Jay

I know they can be deceivingly difficult. But they're a lot of fun!

 

I have painted the Rabbit Ranger, the Mole Alchemist, The Tortoise Cleric and the Newt Warrior.

I also made a diorama with the Frog princess, Prince and Jester.

Great minis.

 

From the BOGW I got two Oathsworn minis, a Tortoise Centurion and an Armadillo Maya Warrior.

 

So I'll be following your work.

 

I love the way you handle these!!!!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8107, Joey the Thug - Sheltie Rogue was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used tree bark and sand on its 40mm diameter base.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8083, Harrek the Otter Cleric was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used a natural river rock as promontory on its 40mm diameter base. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!

      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."

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!
