I really love what you have done with him and truly think he is your best work to date. I am going to be honest though and tell you I hate that background and do not think it shows off the goblin or the the chicken of death to their full potential. It looks grainy to me and just isn't the right color for the bird thingie to stand out. Just my opinion and I hope I don't come across as snarky. Just letting you know I think you would do better in the competition with a different background.

 

That said, if you are sticking with that background, I will gladly tell you which pics I think are best. (I will do this when I get back from seeing Warcraft!)

Hmmm The Chicken is kinda grey, so is the Background, so Pochi might be on to something.

 

As of now.

YES! It was so good! Worth the wait and worth the extra couple bucks to see it in the "fancy" theater! (Previews for Star Trek and Suicide Squad look amazeballs!)

Yup background is the wrong tone.   I will hold my votes for the Darker background!

Okay, I stopped at Michael's on the way home and got some backdrops.

I did the same steps to each photo in the editor, and tried to keep the same 'shot' as well....

 

So what color is best?

Considering both the hobgoblin's colour, the death chicken's colour, and the overall exposure, I'm leaning towards the purple background. Black being a close second.

      So at Reapercon 2018, I scored the Duskwarden poster of Thregan Helmsplitter for my work at the auction, and of course, being the Duskwarden*, I have a couple of the minis as well.
         
       
      So I was thinking of using him as my next PC, but as I have hair, I wanted my mini to also...
      While working on another project with GS, as usual, I made to much, and decided to bite the bullet and do his hair...
      What do you think?




      Comments appreciated!

      They're not pretty but they get the point across. It was my first attempt at really pushing myself for speed. I cranked these out in about 4 paint sessions over 2 weeks with a goal of "not terrible table top". My DnD friends are in for a little surprise (many little green surprises).... 
       
       

       
      More shameful and detailed photos can be found on my blog.

      Not exactly a speed paint, but still completed within only a couple of evenings. I like the way he turned out without all that much effort. I guess I got kinda lucky on this one.

      So I have started prepping this baby for painting:

       
      And I am disappointed with the quality,  the mold lines are sooo bad,  and the vents are right in the middle of details, and some places the vents were cut in such a way that adjacent details were lost. 
       
      Just a few of the many pieces, black knife for scale.

       
      Nasty mold line, with my first pass at it

       
      Vents in detail, there were worse ones that I already mostly fixed on another piece:

       
      For as much as this thing cost, even at Kickstarter pricing, I guess I expected better.
