Holy.... Wow I love this, your colours and blends and it looks like he has stars in his skin... Just... Wow I don't know how to English looking at this xD

 

Thank you!

 

I used a lot of blending and inks and reaper clears and afterwards some stippling of the colors afterwards to try to make his skin look mottled and very alien. ::D:

Nice!  I like how you used some lighter greens to bring highlights up to the face, but the whole thing ends up looking a little muddy since there is so little contrast between the colors anywhere on the bust.  The eyes especially you might want to conside adding a strange color to.  It would bring your focus to the right place and you could give it a really alien look with some odd colors.

Thanks for your comments!

 

Re contrast - guess that's my biggest flaw. I felt I amped it up enough here with the greens, purples, blues, magentas, teals, & yellows. Guess the shiny doesn't do me any favors with being able to see it in the pics. Trust me, in person it doesn't look "muddied" at all. There's a lot of depth of color here without the severeness of the camera and lights against the purposely shiny skin.

 

Re eyes - eh I really didn't want to do any real color on the eyes. I purposely made them metallic to sell the alien look. I did put some colored shadows along the very edges of the metallic & a lighter silver in the center of the eyes to give a spot to look at as irises.

Magnificent Mini !

You completely elevated this to "Ethereal" with your paint skills.

Colors just lift this glorious mini higher and higher.

The clashing colors on the body lift this to a new level.

You really have created a masterpiece.

The base in its richness, elevates it further.

UB3R, you are now entering the gifted, and the unique field of miniature painters.

LEVEL UP !!!

The only thing I would potentially do, is drop some orange hued color in either on the eyes or around the eyes to help make them pop. The way the green and purple are interacting, the black around the eyes is too flat. I feel something has to go there to have them pull some attention away from the fore head, and I think getting a warmer color in there would be a way to do it.

Was going to say... needs orange. :;):

 

A trick I've been using when trying to blend widely different colors is to take pictures of your palette and turn it black and white. This will let you see if you're shading shadows, midtones, and highlights in tone instead of shade.

 

You might have a great green and purple,but if one is the shadow and one the midtone, you have to ensure they truly are the right tone.

 

Looking at your alien, he has great contrast, but his eyes do disappear. Bringing some highlights up in the eyes with a wash of orange shade would make them really pop.

 

Using the Realistic Water was genius. Properly slimey.

      One of Reaper's weirder offerings, this was part of the 2021 virtual expo swag.  I wasn't quite sure what to make of it, so I copied what others had done, giving him bony armored back plates and a big sloppy doggy grin.

      Fell in love with this one when I saw him in the VIP bag for reapercon 2016? 
       
      delighted to get it with the Kickstarter. 
      so much fun to paint.   Was going to to just silver and purple- but the counterpoint of a crown golden horns really sold him as an emperor for me.
       
      the xiii is a reference to the dragon empire of 13th age (which was a great RPG) 
       
      would love C&C before submitting him for yearly contest.

      Patrick Keith's monocular Illyrians are delightful, and I've painted up a few of the stubby little fellas for my SPACEFUTURE setting. Then I came across Eureka's Creeps and knew they belonged to the same universe. I feel like the Creeps occupy about the same position in Illyrian evolution as particularly vile baboons do in ours.
       
      A clutch of eggs? Not quite.
       
       

       
      Horrible little spawn, all eye and mouth, work their way out of their buried larval stage. 
       

       

       
      The adults in the troop bark and yelp with excitement at this successful metamorphosis! 

       

       

       
      Some Little Creeps with Illyrians (incl. 50129, Scout) for comparison:

       
      Oh great, the commotion has roused some of the underground beasts on this cycloptic world! 

       
      Gonna have to suit up to deal with this. 

       
      And here we see contact with Away Team Red of the Galacteers (feat. 50150, Betty)

       

       
      These Little Creeps are just horrible disgusting brutes and I love them. All the danger and ravening hunger of a starved piranha, and all the boundless enthusiasm of an untrained puppy. They also come in Medium and Large, but I like the halfling size of these guys. Great canvases for eyeball practice, too! I may have to get a few more.

      Thought some of you might find this interesting:

      Some of the figures are borderline NSFW so i won't copy any pictures here.
       
      Looks lovely, but even if I wasn't unemployed, these are a bit rich for my blood.  With shipping you're looking at ~$76 for a single bust - ouch...
