you may be a second time poster but not a first time painter with those smooth blends and excellent color choices

 

This is excellent and I sincerely hope there will be a lot more!

 

Maybe even a WIP to share your methods with us!

Thank you for your kindness. :)

 

I am not a beginner to painting but I am a beginner to Reaper Miniatures. I am actually inspired by many of the painters here who are creating amazing works while pushing their abilities as painters. Plus you have such amazing talent behind the curtain that even I have been inspired to elevate my own practices.

 

I would enjoy sharing more with you all as this Forum has a great Community within it. If there is something you would like to see, please let me know. I hope to be an asset to this group.

 

I am currently working on the Frost Giant King and post WIPs on the Reaper Facebook page and at 1HourANight. (Also on Facebook.) If it is okay to cross-post I will post my work here. I am still getting used to the rules so let me know if I stray.

 

Thank you again for your warm welcome. :)

Really nice! I love your color scheme. The pop of color with the blonde hair is great.

 

Gratitude! I am working on Color Theory and found an App called Color Wheel that assists in color choice. I recommend it!

Saw this of Facebook and I have to say that I love the hue that the hair has, and it matches the shade of blue beautifully.

 

And welcome to the forums as an official member! I hope you enjoy crazy; it's all we got here.::P::lol:

 

Gratitude! I strove for the hair and Amber jewels to frame face and bust to draw attention to where I want the viewer to look. I was looking at Derek Schubert's work in the Inspiration Gallery and work to get better myself.

 

I have been reading quite a bit before I got the courage to make myself known. I think you all are just the right amount of crazy and kind. 

 

It is like a large family. :D

The skin tones are amazing!  That face is perfect.

 

Gratitude! I appreciate your C&C.

 

The face is what I strive to bring focus too: it is the first place a viewer looks. The sculpt is epic and allowed me opportunity to really focus on her eyes and face.

 

With smooth skin she has an illusion of youth, where I could make her appear older if I accented eye mouth creases.

 

She reminded me of the Titans from WoW.

Great eyes.

 

Gratitude. That is one of the most difficult parts of Miniature Painting. I appreciate your insight. (I even researched how to do eye shadow.)

Amazing job! I especially like how the eyes came out

 

Gratitude! It makes the effort worthwhile. :D

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      I am Working on my Adventuring kids. I liked the idea of having these Minis for my Kids.
      Currently it is the thief. Well, my Girls dont like thieves so much, so it will be more something else. We will see.
       
      I startet with some green. Looked a little scary.

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!

      I've really been going after these dioramas.  I'm seriously enjoying the change of pace going from the painting to the working of a landscape.  There's still so much I'm learning on color, scenery, and flock, but it's definitely coming along.
       

       
       

       
       
      I thought the pebbles were kind of fun like some kind of jewels, but it didn't hit like I wanted, so I then went and added some GreenStuff jewels among them to give the impression it's mixed precious stones.  Either way, the point of little Rocky hoarding and scheming I think comes across fine. 
       
      Where I may have gone a little overboard was the chipping of the stones.  I think leaving the pillars chipped would have been better and leaving the scaled walls untouched.  It's just hard because as I worked it, I just felt it was needing something else.
       
      There's a local contest that I've been dropping my minis into and it's killing me because I'm getting beat every time by warhammer models.  I keep trying to bring in something different that will make others go, "Oh, that's different."  Even if I don't win, Isuppose that's not the point of me doing them.  The point is to keep trying and using this contest as a motivator to do more.  With most of the other models just being based on a 1 to 3" base, these big boys that I've been doing are sure to catch more eyes than the usual smaller ones I've submitted before.  
       
      Here's to hoping it wins in August or Sept.
