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

      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.

      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
       
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.
