This week I finished "Arakus Landarzad, Wizard" from the "Grey Beards" set in the Bones 4 Core box. I tried a couple experiments with this guy; one was using purple for the shadows on the yellow robes, and the other was using Citadel Contrast Paint to do the gem on the staff. To read more about it see: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2021/01/arakus-landarzad-wizard-bones-4-figure.html
I had started this meaning to use it for the reapercon quad color clash. But I took too long and then decided it need another 3 colors. So technically it's 7 color. Mint green vampire mist, dungeon grey, some old hd blue who's label fell off, carbon grey, shadowed stone, golden glow.

I already have the human blacksmith, but I wanted another blacksmith. Unfortunately I applied the paint to thick at parts (which didn't really help the fact that her face was kinda just a tiny glob already) but Ive got a wet palette that Ill be trying to use next time. I'm also absolutely awful at painting female faces, they always look ridiculous once I paint them haha. Anyways, and criticisms and advice are always welcome

Hello Everyone! I just painted this guy this morning and liked him so much I figured I may as well post him here. I also decided to try and freehand some stars on his robes, so tell me what you think. Also any tips on lighting and stuff would be nice. Currently I'm just using two lamps and my phone camera.
Hi all! With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.
A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another. I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.
More Below the Spoiler:
It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between. I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time. I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago. My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting. Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures. My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.
I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings. And these guys will be looking forward as well. And backwards. And sideways. Always watching.
How have you improved this year?
