Nicely done!

 

I'd suggest that you try to use a dark to neutral background for final pics, something like a grey or black. I'd also suggest that instead of painting the base a color like gold rim it in black. The reason being that black shows and end to the base for our minds and when you paint it a shiny color it distracts the eye and pulls it from the focus of the miniature itself. 

 

You're really doing a great job though, some constructive criticism so that you can up your game a bit more next time ::D:

She looks great.!

 

I second Ub3r's advice.

For me I paint the rims either earth or green depending on the terrain the mini is supposed to be on.

 

A little neutral background will provide better pics.

 

Keep up the good work and have fun!!!

Normally i would agree with the black base... but here, i REALLY like the golden pedestal - Every sorcerer is a bit of an ego maniac, and this lady is definitely flaunting the bling!

 

Beautifully painted and very flashy - i love it

 

i predict you never pick up another characters mini by mistake!

      Her face is way lighter in real life. In the pics she looks like she's got stubble...

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend
       
      WIP
       
      As mentioned in the Work In Progress, this is a character of mine from an existing campaign.  The character has died once and was raised from the dead suffering a drop in his already low Charisma score as a result.  His caved-in skull didn't heal properly and the concussion and time in limbo have left him "off" personality wise.
       
      So, with damaged head and tattoos adorning his arms and the opposite side of his skull, I present the embodiment of his family surname, Tor Skullcrusher. 
       

       

       

       

       
      These were taken with a single strip light source so I may come back to this and take some more pics with two background lights.
       
      As always, feel free to leave notes and praise as warranted.  
       
      Thanks for looking.
       
      Enjoy and Stay safe.

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Thrym Project  :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend.
       
      Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk.  As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere.
       

      I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far.  I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis.
       
      Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull.  An ironic happenstance, given the character's name.
       
      Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club.  This is not something unusual so far.  The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby.  Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness.  He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin.
       

       
      So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead.  His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse.
       
      I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better.  The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel.  I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig.
       
      For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin.  The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash.  I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well.  The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again.
       

       

       
      For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof.  The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head.
       
      His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it.
       
      Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit.  I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points. 
       
      More work to come soon.
       
      Stay Tuned and Safe.  Enjoy.

      Such a fun idea for a mini!
      But then you have to paint all the dragon scales.
      I was going for a more Asian skin tone.  I tried to speed through this one since her sword was so bent.

      This was an experiment with color. I decided to give the Limited Palette challenge a try last night.  The challenge is 3 colors, plus black and white. Specifically, the three colors must be a blue, green, and pink.  I chose cyan blue, gnoll pelt, and cactus flower.  I'm quite happy with how she came out, for a figure I wasn't terribly interested in to begin with. 
       

       

       

       
      Sorry, my camera could not handle a close-up of the face. 
       
      For anyone wondering about the red hair, a strange thing happens when you mix cactus flower and gnoll pelt....
       

       
      The base is from Secret Weapon.
