Bones I Goblin Archer

Maybe the first picture is a little out of focus but,I think it looks very good. The color are fits perfectly together and the wood grain turned out great. Did you use white or yellow to build up the skin highlight? Since you seem to wish to improve, I'll give you my friendly opinion. I think I see purple on the leather armor, but if it's the case, it's a little shy you may want to highlight it some more. Contrast is the key.

The armor gave me the most trouble, and after messing and messing with it I finally called it done. The skin is the green triad highlighted up all the way to Bright Skin Highlight. 

 

Thanks for the C&C, it's always much appreciated.

That is one GOOD LOOKIN' Goblin. Your skin tones & other colors are as WONDERFUL as your deft brushwork. VERY WELL DONE!

He looks great! I think you have done the skin very well with your highlights. Sometimes, it is better to call it finished if you are frustrated. You can always try again on the next mini!

Someday maybe I'll pull out one of my early minis and help you feel better about yourself. You did fine, your brushing is precise and your colours are good. There's a great contrast. The only thing I'd do differently is highlighting a few areas up, especially on the face and armour.

I love the color of his skin, I think it works quite nicely! I may steal that; my gobbos tend to have desaturated skin, but I like how vivid this one is. Nice work!

 

Huzzah!

      So this is the test figure for my orc warband for frostgrave and mordhein (WIP thread here)
       
      I like the palette so far and I'm happy how this guy turned out. I will post other minis as I paint them. Cheers!

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
       
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
       
      Wish me luck!

      I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
