That is a SPLENDID start to a FINE looking mini...he is a serious looking Dude. Dark Sword has come a long ways from the first (& only) ones I painted when they first came out.

For some reason whenever I see a mini with a bow in one hand & a sword in the other, I picture him absentmindedly

So did some more work on his skin...

 

Arabic Shadow and Pink Flesh, then Pink Flesh, then Pink Flesh and Basic Flesh, then Basic Flesh, then Basic Flesh and Golden Skin, Then Golden Skin.....

 

I also looked at the way his beard and Mustache looked in the Arabic Shadow against his skin, and decided it would make a splendid base for the Blond Hair the player asked for...

Pretty pleased with how he is going so far...

 

Thanks for looking!

Love the eyes!  Totally jealous of them.  :)  Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

So I managed to do some bad things to the face with glazes, and had to try to salvage it....

also started high lighting the hair with the MSP Blond Triad...

I like that the face and hair are similar in color- neat effect.  I think I'd up the contrast though if possible.  Put some darker shadows on the skin maybe?  You might even be able to do this just with and slight shift in color through more glazing- maybe adding a hint of something like a mahogany brown or ruddy leather or even going greenish with an olive.  Mediterranean type skin responds very well to olive shadows, especially if you're planning to use green in the clothing.  Alternatively, if you're going to go very light with the hair, that'll do the trick as well.  I love this mini.  Supposedly it's a self portrait of the sculptor, which is just so much fun!  the eyes are looking great!

 

What is your overall color scheme for the player?  I like using complementaries, so picking a shadow color for the skin that will either harmonize or complement another color in the scheme is a fun trick.

 

Keep up the great work!  You're doing an awesome job with the glazing and smoothness!

Thanks everyone! :blush:

 

Players list:

Hair will be blond, so going up a step or 2 there

Cloak Dark green (But I think I am going to use Field Grey*)

Pants, quiver and armor browns

Boots black

 

We will also see what browns I plan on....

And not sure about black boots....

 

I keep referring to the DSM page to look at colors and what is what....

 

(It is not a commission, it is my mini, painting up for the player's use... so I can do what I want....

 

George)

 

Edit--> the base color for the skin and hair are both the same, Scale 75 Arabic Shadow, from the Flesh Paint Set....

 

* Field Grey is actually a Green Grey color, it is called that due to being the color of Wehrmacht uniforms during WWII....

So I did some work on the ranger's hair with MSP Blond Highlight, and put some Field Grey on the cloak...

I am kind of amazed at the way the little bit of Field Grey near his face changes the look....

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

      This is Thrasios, a triton ranger and one of the players in my D&D 5e Theros campaign. I built this mini in Hero Forge according to the player's description and added my own touches to it. For example, I was inspired by the neon tetra fish in painting the skin and I used Greek hoplite reference pictures to paint the armor.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the forth and last mini I entered in the Pathfinder painting contest. 60118, Order of the Pyre's Hellknight sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      This time, the colors I selected are completely different from the display model of the Online store. I hope you will enjoy it.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the third model I entered in the Pathfinder painting contest. This is the metal version of 60009 Seoni the Sorceress sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
      The challenging part on this one was painting the tattoos and the other freehand on her clothes.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 60142 Golden Guardian I painted for the Pathfinder painting contest. This model was sculpted by Tim Prow. It was the perfect miniature to practice my nmm.

      Hello everyone! This was one of my entries in the Pathfinder painting contest. Here's 60001, Valeros the fighter sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      The event was a great source of motivation for me, I painted four models in total.
