I love the style you painted them in! I am a little scared to start on mine (I have the forgotten king edition). I have only finished the rabid squirrels so far. These minis are quite tricky imo. You did a fantastic job! Matching the colours to the name is super cute!

Thanks.

 

They are kind of tricky- not that they're necessarily harder than other minis, but they require a different approach.  Most of the time, you can do a face without as much blending or even with lower contrast and it can work because the area is so small.

 

On these, the fact that it is skin means that you need that smoothness, but the size of the faces means that you have to blend it all together.  It isn't a different skill set, it is just a different way to use them.

 

 

Posting chibis online is always a little weird too.  They're almost universally small, but the photos are usually the same size as those for larger minis- meaning that it is pretty easy for them to end up looking like they needed freehand even if they look fine in person.
