I'm working through this guy right now, and it's a pain hahaha you are doing a good job, specially on the headress and chest/shoulder thing, your lines are mostly straight and contained. I get the feeling that toward the weapon/gauntlets you might have lost your patience and became slightly more careless. 

 

We have all been through there, specially on minis that have a lot of small details (as this guy does), when taht happens its better to g odo something else (maybe prime or base coat the next one) to clear your head and come back renewed

 

Keep up the godo work!

I definitely got frustrated doing the gauntlets. I had put one of the arms down and accidentally set it in wet paint and didn't realize until it was dried so had to do it over. The weapon can just be chalked up to I don't have a terribly steady hand but I'm working on that.

Good job.

 

Why don't you feel satisfied with the back?

 

I think he looks good, maybe it's the pics, but it feels like he might benefit from a little wash or shadow,

I'm okay with the back, I can just pick out little things in the picture that I didn't see before that could be greatly improved upon. I think it's the pics, I did a wash in selective places but you can't really tell. I'm still trying to work out just how much light I need to use in my light box to get the full effect without washing out the final results some.

Pictures are not always showing off the mini like they should.

We all struggle with that,

 

in SHUTTERBUG thread, you may find some tips and trics.

His mask looks great. Maybe try more layers on his skin next time so it's a more gradual difference between the shadows and the lighter parts, possibly with brighter highlights here and there too? I like the color selection.

Your brush control is great. Really nice lines. Some shading, like dark wash, on the gold parts, and some highlights on the skin tones would give him a very professional look, I think. :)

      I'm sure many of you can sympathise- we see a cool model in a kickstarter, finally get it delivered and then sit flummoxed whilst trying to figure out exactly how to paint said mini. This Mystic Portal has been sitting on my painting desk since last June and I finally figured out what to do with it.
       
      Imagine that your players have just finished ransacking your meticulously planned dungeon/keep/cavern system. They've breezed through the encounters, possibly due to good dice rolls or possibly that they're a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos. What you need is one final encounter, one last chance for them to shine or to let them spectacularly fail.
       
       There's one last room left and it's securely locked. It'll certainly be magically warded and if I know my players then that's a challenge that they won't be able to pass up. Inside the room is a single portal, made of nondescript stone but with stunning looking gems set into the eyes of it's carved dragons. Surely none of them would be daft enough to trigger an obviously dangerous portal?
       
      You haven't met my players
       
      My plan to paint one side of the portal the naturalistic stone colour and to paint the other side the fully active, just about to summon a multi headed dragon, portal. This means that when they invariably trigger it, all I have to do is spin it around and savour their worried/confused faces Here's hoping that I can actually do it justice.
       
      This is the portal. It's cast in translucent bonesium, which I like because it gives you a choice between taking advantage to it's see through quality or to just paint it like a normal mini. I opted to paint it as normal.
       

       
      There was a slight bit of warping on the base piece, but the old 'boiling/ice water' trick sorted it out in 5 minutes. I'm planning on setting the base on some warning runes, so I used the Greenstuff World Dwarven rolling pin on some foam to see how it would fit onto the pattern.
       

       
      On to the painting! I painted the inactive side of the portal Cloudy Grey 9089 and the active side Pure Black 9037.
       

       

       
      I'm not sure if I'm going to fuzz up this line or leave it as a stark contrast.
       

       
      I added a black/ green wash to dirty up the stone and added a little bit of orange to the stone to give it a little bit of texture
       

       
      The real work begins! I started blocking in the colours for the active side of the portal. Red, purplish black, white, green and blue. It's almost as if I'm trying to match my half finished Ma'al Drakar
       


       
      My coordination went a bit wobbly with the foo dogs(which are awesome, btw!) so that's where I left it for tonight. We've got a storm coming in tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get some more work done on it tomorrow. Any comments/criticism/suggestions are, as always, warmly received.

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      This was a fun sculpt - orange octopus definitely inspired by others :)

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown.  I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.
