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 green and purple interplay nicely to give the skin some kind of iridescence.

Thank you! I'm very happy you like it!

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.

Fantastic job! I can tell the water effects are messing with the colors in the picture, so I will keep my fingers crossed that I will see him in person someday,

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.

      Thought some of you might find this of interest:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cultofpaint/deorgard-by-cult-of-paint
       
      At Cult of Paint we've taught painting classes to hundreds of people all over the world. We make painting tutorials for YouTube and Patreon. We have signature series airbrushes with renowned manufacturer Harder & Steenbeck AND we produce a 54mm sci-fi miniatures range and bust collection that has won multiple international painting awards. Now it's time for something really cool............ OUR FIRST FANTASY MINIATURES RANGE!!!!! 
      Dræfend bust painted by David Colwell @davecolwell725 Ever since we created our sci-fi miniatures range we've had the bug for creating awesome models for people to enjoy painting. We LOVE fantasy settings and wanted to create our own world to explore the characters so often associated with fantasy and folklore, but with our own interpretations. And so Deorgard was born, with the elves being the first race we wanted to bring to life as gorgeous miniatures and busts......
      Heargeard bust painted by Rodrigo Ciprés @rodrigo.akore Releasing the range in one go ensures we create tonnes of excitement while also enabling painters to get their favourite models from day one with no long gaps between characters coming out. And it means we can crack on with working on more miniatures for you to add to your collections!
      As we begin to explore this wild land we wanted to introduce some elves from different regions of Deorgard.  PLAY  
      In Heargeard we meet a woodsman. A guardian of the forests and the dark places where some of the most ancient parts of the land still endure.
      Heargeard concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by David Colwell ( yes that base is insane ) As the trees give way to the grasslands a hunter needs not only patience but the frightening speed and savagery to survive. Dræfend is one such elf who excels here. She has learned to hunt as part of a pack, accompanied by one of the great wolves that make their homes in the foothills nearby.
      Dræfend & Wulf concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Dræfend & Wulf painted by Ruben Martinez @rma_ruben_martinez The land rises sharply and great peaks soar towards the sky. Here we find another symbiosis of elf and beast. Whilst Sceotend may be blind she does not lack sight, her hawk's third eye providing unrivalled clarity and vision.
      concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Sceotend painted by Richard Gray @daemonrich An equally harsh environment can be found in the vast desert that covers much of the centre of Deorgard. In this ever-changing and ruthless sea of sand, those such as Læl's word is law. She is judge and executioner, swift and merciless at dealing out punishment to any transgressors. 
      Læl concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Læl painted by Andy Wardle @andywardle_artwork As primal and challenging as the landscape of Deorgard is there are still places where societies have settled and thrived. Guardians such as Indryhten stand sentinel over sacred places and those elected by their peers to rule these bastions of advancement.

      A pair of speed painted 3d printed robots I completed during my 4th of July Paint Binge.  I found the GW Contrast paints to be very good at covering large smooth surfaces easily.  The red one was from a KS project by EC3D. (and yes, it's missing an arm) I am not sure where my husband found the other one, but maybe Thingaverse.

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.
