Tut - Chibi - 01546

Recommended Posts

I am presently working through the Chibi's from Reaper I have collected.    This is the first to be completed in 2017.


I present to you TUT  #01546.  I need to get better at eyes though especially for these Chibi's.. any suggestions, guidance or critique would be appreciated.

He coulda won a Grammy buried in his 'jamies, King Tut...it came unbidden into my head. The Boy King is a COOL little creation. I love the way you did his eyes. OUTSTANDING WORK!

I think the Eyes aren't bad at all.


You could use a little white for a reflection dot and a little yellow streak in the red.

It will make them pop more.


I did that with the Countess.

I think he looks great, including the eyes.  There are a few tutorials online for painting chibi eyes, here are a few that I like:

http://robjedi.blogspot.com/2015/04/super-dungeon-explore-painting-eyes.html(simple, but really nice IMHO)

Hope some of these help!

I like it too. I'm actually paint Chibi myself and since eyes have always be something I have a hard time to paint I think Chibis are good models to practice on.

There's some nice links to videos on how to paint eyes on the Painting Tips & Advice here's a link to my favorite one, Painting Eyes by David Powell recomendad by CashWiley.

And, The Craft section also have a Basic Steps to Bold Eyes tutorial by Darin Hlavaz.

I like the Chibi, and I'm grateful for all of the comments on eyes - I've been painting some Chibis of my own, and I'm going to try that 'do the eyes first' idea on the next one.

      Evil has many faces, even when it is kind of cute. Here are some of the generals working under the Dark Consul. They represent the highest caliber of evil in Super Dungeon Explore. This is a set of bosses for Super Dungeon Explore that I painted for a client.

      The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb.  Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance.  A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall.  Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
      The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal.  On top sits a small box.
      Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box.  He lifts the lid and peers inside.
      "Ah, there's my old minis!"
      Who's Your Mummy?
      Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet.  This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.

      These mummies were one of my first large painting projects.  It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously.  They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
      These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power.  After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.
      What's your favorite mummy encounter?

      a new Impact! project offers 12 frog folk either for RPGs (with smaller heads etc) or as Chibis (with larger heads etc)

      you can buy the minis directly as physical prints

      or you can buy the STLs if you have a 3D printer of your own

      Digital Models - You can purchase the STL 3-D Print file for any of the below 24 models for $2 each. One entire set of STL 3-D Print files for the 12 models in either RPG or Chibi format is $15. All 24 STL 3-D Print files are $25.

      (NOTE: The RPG Frog Folk Merchant is available for as a free download below .. you do not need to buy it!)

      Physical Models - You can purchase individual physical copies of the miniatures for any of the below 24 models (see the image for price per a model). One entire set of 12 physical miniatures in either RPG or Chibi format is $65. All 24 physical miniatures for this KickStarter (both sets) is only $110. The sets are discounted for this KickStarter from the expected retail prices of $70 and $130 for the sets when/if they go to into our retail store.

      The physical models both RPG and Chibi are designed for an average Frog Folk Villager to be 28mm in total height when standing. Since most Frog Folk are shown of smaller stature than a Human in most RPG settings we feel this scale helps show that well.

      Free Sample!
      If you want a sample of the models, Cute Loot Miniatures is providing the RPG version of the Frog Folk Merchant for free to download for your review!
