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?
