Qesnef, Ogre Mage and Halfling Form

WOW!

 

I love these - Very cool to see something so stylized and visually impactful - The bold highlighting isa really effective choice as it increases definition and makes these really POP!

 

Plus simple things like one corner of a rug to make the ogre mage feel like he is connected to the larger world - nice touch

 

gorgeous!

I'll never paint this well in my entire life. So jealous...

That is what I said a few years ago and still say when I see others work. Practice, ask questions and listen to other Reaper member advice. I can still remember key things people said to me that helped incredibly.

The miniatures are cool, but the brushwork, basing, & colors make them  FANTASTIC creations. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Sometimes when I run across a Show Off posting, I have to study it for a bit, to learn technique. I pulled the photos and put a monochrome filter on them -- the tonal variance is perfect, going from black to nearly white in every hue used. The hatching adds texture that just doesn't exist in the model, and tricks the eye into thinking there is more blending of color than there actually is. And the selection of colors is harmonious; you definitely have a good eye for picking what colors will work together when going from shadow to light.

 

I only wish the the images were higher resolution, so I could study them in more detail.

Thanks!

I bought a wet pallette to help with blending that I am yet to use. Although I imagine it may slow me down even more. My buddy says I have my own style and not to bother with it.

Your buddy is right.

      I think I have got the right mini name. He or she is from Fan Favourites. Painted simply, Scale 75 black metal, then a wash, then drybrush with Army Painter rough iron/rust colour. Tried to do a water effect on the base, layers of gloss mod podge with green ink and bits of wood from a log bag in the middle.

      Loved painting this little chap from Dreadmere. Had ideas of painting him up as a villain or grim ranger but went back to a traditional bright Halfling pallette.

      #2 Bones marsh troll - don't love the final result but it'll do for tabletop play
      #3 Bones ogre guard - experimenting with skin tones for DND
      #4 My FAVORITE Bones 4 figure that I identified from the Dreadmere expansion #421 - I call him the Undead Friar.

      I went canon with this. No airbrush. It’s a great sculpt. Really it’s too bad Reaper would have to make a knock off version because of the IP. I bet they’d make a great remorhaz.

      I was painting Kieran Tallowmire. I was quite apprehensive as I found that miniature to be quite daunting will all the detail (books, candle, familiar on shoulder ...). I first wanted him to be different ... so no grey robes, no blue robes ... I went for green, which totally did not work out. So he ended up with blue robes (was the easiest way to salvage the wreck that "dark green" had done).
      Of course, the way he is holding the book and his hand, he is conjuring something,  but if green had worked, I would not have had an idea what - a plant maybe? Blue robes - water mage, water elemental. So I remembered that somewhere in my stash of 3D print files, where was a baptismal font, which looked like it could be used with Kieran.
      The next idea was to get some water sprite / elemental that was conjured out of the font ... and with a 3D file you can scale and reduce the size, so that is what I did with a water elemental / Water snake I had.
      A couple of mishaps later (me using liquid water for the first time, for example, and discovering that my version dissolves normal plastic glue) ... this is the result: I really think I had some good ideas, I'm not sure if I'm satisfied with my execution - but as I usually strive for table-top quality, I think it's ok.
       
      The base is resin by Fenryll ... Thinking about using red on the runes outside the pentagram ... or do the blue, too? Or just leave them as they are?
       
      Criticism welcome.
