Awesome painting! Intricate attention to detail and the skill to match.. Two thumbs up!

 

But, it does cry out for some soft OSL, dont you think? ^_^

For competition I agree completely and can see a blue Vavilov glow haloing his head and familiar. I also would like to see more done than the standard gaming base as each mini tells a story - and the base should reflect that. For commissions I am bound by my client and their desires - and how much they are willing to spend.

 

I am working in a bust I think you will enjoy the OSL effect. :D

 

Gratitude for your insight! I like how your thoughts echoes my own.

Great paintjob, I love the palette. I also have Nolevniss, but since its one of my favourite Reaper elfs, and not a particularly easy to paint one, I'm kind of blocked with him. I can't decide on a color scheme. To me the familiar and the staff tell a different story than the clothing and traveling wizard items. The first suggest a powerfull spellcaster on the evil side, a leader, owner of his own tower; more an imposing NPC than an adventurer. Clothing and traveling items suggest the opposite, a traveling wizard, and I always associate "traveling wizards" with "improvement in progess" if you know what I mean. So... brilliant, high quality clothes with some freehand, that suggest wealth and power? Or discrete, comfortable ones on the practical side?

your scheme gived me ideas to conciliate both, so... many thanks! Great job ^^

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      This little guy was a freebie from Bombshell Miniatures given out at Reapercon 2019. He is also available on their website.  I put him on a jungle base from Microarts.  Tried for some dark blue/grey coloration, wasn't happy with it, tried some green washes, but he kept turning blue again. Brushed a little green metallic on and he turned silver, did the green wash again with a different brand.  Decided I had messed around with it long enough. 
       
      In the background is a 3-d printed stone bridge my husband made for me. Tabletop drybrush in shades of brown over a black base coat.

      In 2018 I got one of my favourite 25th Anniversary miniatures, Darius the Blue. I actually have all three of Darius sculpts, the latest being my favourite too. 
      First I tried to paint it with the same mosaic pattern Reaper used, without any success, so I settled with... kind of a freehand that I didn't like at all and a very excentric color palette. 
      That (in my opinion) failed attempt got stuck on my head and recently I bought another one to paint it again, and I'm a lot happier with the results. This is my only "1 year improvement" pic, and I thought on sharing it here since being the exact same miniature I would love some feedback. 
       
      Here the 2018 version 
       

       
      And the 2019 version that I just finished today

      Hi there, this is my first attempt at OSL. I was going for drama, but it does seem a little heavy handed. I learned alot painting it. I'm fairly pleased with it.
      Feedback and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!
