Recommended Posts

Those are some nasty boils on his back.. he might want to see a doctor about those!

 

Seriously, nice job there :)

He came out quite nicely!

 

The layering looks good!

It pretty much works the same way for any colors / things you are painting....

skin, cloaks, etc

The paintjob itself is very good, but I wonder why the snow is brown? Is this a withe balance issue or did you want to depict slushy, brown snow? If it is the latter I would add a bit of acrylic gloss medium to make it look more slushy and "wet".

 

I really like your reduced palette, that really draws the attention to the two pustules, ready to burst I imagine. The layering on the skin produced a very smooth looking, subtle effect without goign overboard on highlights or shadows.

 

The loin cloth looks good, too, but I feel a red glaze to bring it back into the red spectrum or maybe a red-brown glaze would add more contrast and make it look less like a salmon colour.

Thanks for the constructive feedback. The snow was supposed to be fresh fallen snow on tundra grass. When I sprayed it with the dull coat it started bleeding through. I'm considering stripping the base and redoing it. My plan failed.

 

I see what you mean about the loin cloth. To me it didn't look out of sorts, until I really stopped and examined it. I think I added too much of a pink hue. I'll try glazing like you suggested. I appreciate the feedback. I'm trying to get better. Thanks again!!

There was a comment about the base of this mini being discolored.  I think it could be due to lighting.  Here is a close up shot of the base, without my overhead light on.  This was taken with just the lamp I used to paint with as lighting.  I think it looks a little closer to what I was going for.  Dead grass, covered in snow.  I have decided not to rework the base, but I may try another model with this pallet and place him on a round base, and see if I can make it look better.

 

Does this picture look more like snow and ice over grass?

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!

      I decided to try the new hotness of the color shifting paints. I am really impressed. I hope you all enjoy my version of the clockwork dragon.
