Welcome to the madness! That's a great first mini! You have gotten some really good advice above. I think especially the shield and armour look fantastic!

My first attempt was rats because I figured they would be easier than a person. I was right!

 

This looks very good and you are already getting good advice so I will simply say Welcome!

 

I started with a rat too! I believe it was from the first familiar pack...with the falcon XD

You could make a WIP thread.

People will cheer you on and give advice!

A dot of Blue would look cool in the eyeholes of a skull...  

Maybe Spectral Glow, if you have it.

 

Also, this is the point where I write something about yet another beginner being better than me... Except I've used all the good lines already...   So many good painters here. And you're one of them.

Hi and welcome to this crazy forum!

 

I think you are off to a fantastic start!  Your first mini looks great!

 

The only advice I can give is the same advice I was given and keep hearing; just paint more. The skills will grow. 

 

Now if I could only follow my own advice....

You have nice clean lines and good color schemes! My suggestion is a brown wash/shade in the creases of the red. You can likely use the same brown but thinned with water to do shading on the yellow too (I find yellow a somewhat difficult color). More shadows will help show the creases better. My next suggestion is to hit the Shutterbug forums and read Doug's photography posts. The lighting on those seems a bit harsh, but bright enough to get the job done (I had opposite issue for a long time - not enough light!). I'm not the best at it, hence sending you to Doug. He is The Wizard of Wavicles. 

 

Good job on the painting! Many prosperous more figured to you :)

Did you use the same metallic paint for both the weapons and the armors?

Try using a different and slightly darker metallic for the mail parts of the armor.

(Not because mail is darker in real life, but because since you've used bright metal on the swords, and they tend to be a focus for the eyes, people's subconsciousness label it as 'sharp','hard'. That's my thoughts on it, anyways)
