Alright, I have been working off and on on Tarko's armor and I am nearing the end of it. Still have some blending to do mainly on his left/back but overall I am happy with it. What do you guys think? Also any ideas for what color the straps/belts should be?

Looks great! That blending on the front is very smoooooooth.

 

Straps/belts I'd go with a beat up brown leather.

Thanks! The blending has been both fun and frustrating. I like the color transitions that I am getting but it definitely has been a challenge learning how to use the Scale 75 F&G line. They are great for the blending but did not cover that well for the base coat so I have some areas of black peeking through which have resisted my attempts to cover up. I am not sure if it is just the way the paint is or if I did not mix it enough. I could have done a few more layers of the base but it was getting too thick for my taste so I started on the blending. Now I am toying with the idea of weathering to cover some of it up except I have not done it before and I really like the clean look. Also if I made a mistake, it would be difficult to correct. 

 

I was thinking brown for the straps/belts as well, also the boots. I was also considering black or grey but it was just not working in my mind. I am planing a blue black on the cloths so I felt the black or grey would disappear too much against the cloth and stand out too much against the armor.

No more WIP pics on Tarko, I forgot to take some as I got wrapped up in finishing. He is now done except for the plinth. He is not perfect but I am extremely happy with him. The pigment on the base may have not been the best idea but it works.

I have to remember when I get home tonight to take a picture that shows his gun better as I am really happy with how it turned out. The only thing that is bugging me still is the base. I wish I had been able to bring more of his colors into the base but that really did not work with the bright colors of his armor. The rocks do have some glazes of blue, the plants are the same colors as his leather, and I did the red dirt to bring in a similar color but I don't know if it is enough. I may be stressing over nothing and it may all be due to that it is a departure from what I had planned originally, that was an epic fail, I just need to get these thoughts out of my head.

And I think I figured out something I can do. Not revealing it yet in case it does not work. Why do I always think of solutions when I am at work and can't do anything about it?!?

I think he looks super great!  I really love his skin!  I'm really impressed!

 

I cant wait to see the elfs!

 

Thanks! The Dark Sword elf will be finished sometime this week. I thought I had posted more progress pics on her but it looks like I haven't, I will remedy that tonight if I remember to. The assassin along with the Crimson Herald, unfortunately have had to be set aside. They will be finished sometime but they were the two planned ReaperCon entries that I had to sacrifice to make sure I finish everything else.

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.

      Here is my take on the Dance of Death sculpt from the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
       

       

       
      I really enjoyed this one,  finishing it up this last winter. I saw someone mention somewhere online that they were bummed that the heads didn't exactly line up, but I found it reminiscent of dogs when they are snarling while looking sidelong at each other.
       
      Apologies for the scratches and discolorations on the background. I've been meaning to pick up some black cloth to improve that.
       
      Thanks for taking a look!
