Otter Knight with Sword and Shield

Recommended Posts

Great job, Jay!! My suggestion is to try to amp up those highlights a bit more, the cape looks like it could use a bit more, I don't know if this is because of the light reflecting off of it and washing out your highlights or if it's truly a case of needing a bit more amping up.

That is another SPLENDID creation. The metalwork is DAZZLING; the brushwork & color choices are OUTSTANDINGAND the base is a thing of BEAUTYVERY WELL DONE!

Nice work.  I've eyed him several times on their site, and its good to see this fig posted on the forums.  It is nice to see the fig from all those angles.  I need to start another of these soon.

Your skills are still improving JAY

 

In both paint and photography!

 

I like the choices you have made and the metals are very nice.    I think the lights are washing out your highlights on the cloak.  

 

Well done!

Love the face on this guy, you did a wonderful job on his eyes and expression. And his shield I see is taken from the otter version of Dr Suess; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Lunch!

@Jasonator I love this one!

Very cool armor, and the red fish is an awesome touch.

 

May I suggest taking the base a step further?

I would apply a little water effect ( Vallejo Water Effect Paste) to create some water dripping from those rocks.

He would look like he was in a wet environment, at the shore of a lake or something, which would be fitting for an Otter.

 

Also @canuckotter you need to see this!!!

Thanks Ub3r;

I am using a side ight (LED) and I suspect it washed out the shadow and the highlight.

I used blue in the shadows (like on the otter's shield around the figures. !

Its great painting more again!

Your stuff just gets better and better :)

Thanks Malafactus!!

Our little creations get fixated in our heads.  They do give a great sense of accomplishment!

I especially enjoy when someone realizes how small they are.. LOL.

Thanks again.

LOL.. Thanks for the face comments.  It was hard not making the otter into a hound dog ! 

I adored doing the shield!  Quite the challenge.

I will have to take you excellent advise concerning the water and use it on another mountain base I do,

with some grass added to the mix.  I sealed it after photos, so it will have to wait another chance to incorporate

that touch !

Thanks for the recommendation!

That is beautiful! ::D:

 

Thanks for pointing it out to me @Glitterwolf! ::): 

So glad that you like the Otter Knight !

Delightful to paint, and so much detail to play with.

The folds in cloak are a delight to do.!

Thanks for the comment.

Wow! Amazing job, I love the eyes they are so realistic looking. Cool mini also.

Thank you for you kind comment. 

Eyes come with time and brush control.

All of us started out somewhere, and this group of folks will help you grow in our mutual

Hobby.  There is lots of satisfaction to be had.

Thank you for the likes Patrik Strom and Seer of the Pitt.

Glad to see some members of the good ole guard still in out midst.

I've been having a blast playing with colors and moods with the latest miniatures.

Brush work, color choices and balance still working in the background.

Your input made me smile, and enjoy the fruit of my handwork.

Now I'm putting together "Young Robert Baratheon"

It's a Tom Meier work.. SMALL !!

Thanks Chaoswolf !

I have been enjoying catching up on some of my mini's.

I may have another one finished by tomorrow.

So many appointments to get to that I have little time

to paint.  That will come to an end soon enough.

Glad to see you still on the Forums.

Your opinion is very valued !

Jay

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.
