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?

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.
