Nice work!

I agree that the red cloth is drawing the eye too much. I would suggest painting it the same blue that you used on the shield, that way it will still stand out from the ground, but not pull so much attention away from the ogre.

Alternatively, you could add red toward the top of the model to balance it out. Examples would be adding a touch of blood to his hammer or painting the ropes that are wrapped around his bracers as red cloth.

Actually did try to make it blue when I had some left on the palette, but I think I remembered wrong which blue was on the shield and it's a different shade.  I can probably highlight it closer to the color of the shield.  Thanks for the input!  I think it'll make a difference in the final look.

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
       
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.

      Considering this is a Reaper forum, I don't post nearly enough Reaper stuff!
       
      Going to try remedying that by slowly going through that big box of Bones V I've got perched on top of my stack of unpainted things.
       
      I'm starting with Hercules (Didn't expect him to be my first choice, but I have been watching a lot of Greek Myth stuff on Youtube lately):-
       

       
      This is after I've prepped him, primed him, had a second go at the mold-lines (I'm trying to get better at this), re-primed and finally given a Brown Wash.
      Got a little problem going on with his right arm, from the back it's all bulging muscle, but from the front the gap between his bicep and club is filled in with something. Not sure how to fix this, so I decided to paint it as part of his lion cape (And hope no one notices the two halves don't line up).
       

       
      Huh, mystery solved. Looking at it now in these piccys, I can see that weird bit of arm is actually his thumb.
       
      Painted his lion cape first (I'm a messy drybrusher).
      This was a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow, then a Brown Wash, then drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Bonewhite. 
      While the mane and tail end were a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown, Brown Wash and drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown/Bonewhite.
      Finally, it got Bonewhite claws, Dwarf Skin paw pads and then everything got Sepia Wash.
       
      While I'm on the computer I need to see if lions have special noses, if not then tomorrow I start on the skin of Hercules!

      Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper.
       
      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.

      These guys were fun. I did two of them over the summer, experimenting with color blending.  The first was a take on the Chesapeake blue crab, and I might have gotten a little carried away with the bright color, 
       

       

       
      The second one I did in a more subdued sea crab coloration:
