There are the three traditional options:

  1. Draw/paint lots and lots of anatomy until you can see light placement just by looking.
  2. Hold the mini below a light and check the shadows.
  3. Place the unpainted mini below a light and take pictures from several different angles.  View those images while painting to see if your highlights and shadows are in the right place. 

The utility of #3 depends on your setup, but everyone can do #2 as a spot check.  #1 is why we say practice practice practice.  ::):

I'm going to stick with what I've done on this one since I don't want to spend forever fixing just a base.

I have two patreons where I am getting (paid) mentoring by artists so hopefully I will keep leveling up this year. I plan on bugging Liz Beckley on this mini for our January lesson this month :D

      Quite large, painted this for my Dad's birthday. He loves to collect hand painted knights, soldiers and such. So I think he will really like it. I could do more with the base, but the birthday is today and no time left. It took me about a month to paint and put together. I kind of like it the way it is, maybe it showcases the rock and the figure better if it is not so busy with other stuff.
       
      The Shield was the hardest part. I am not so great at freehand and then deciding to muck it up with blood and dirt was a really tough decision. I read in quite a few places that the Pegasus was a popular figure found in Roman art (seen in pottery, mosaics and such.) Hopefully I am not too far off the mark historically, but my dad is more into the overall look than historical accuracy.
       
       
      3inches 1/24 scale - hope you enjoy

      I constructed this in the 2018 Bones Mash-up at Reapercon.  The wings do not go with the body, and one of the arms is not original.  I forget what the weapon was but I cut it off the bone handle and added a wicked looking blade from my bits box.  He was kind of boring all in grey and white, so I added a dab of blood, and put some orange into his bat wings.   He's on a Secret Weapon base that has added sand to fill in weird gaps.
