Great work, Jay! I can tell you spent a lot of time on her and I know that the DSM figures are difficult to assemble. 

 

A small critique would be to add some highlights of varied colors to the wings as they are reading very flat in the pics.

I almost opened up a WIP on the wings.  I have about twelve different variations of colors on those wings.

White, blue, white, off white, pink, gray and in between.

Nothing I was doing (including cloud like shapes were cutting it. 

I also think I REALLY don't like the wings.... it doesn't hold the standard of the  mini (in my non sculpture/carver persona).

I think I just don't like the wings, and mixed some colors that gave me some contrast, and walked away from the wings.

Like the Ruby Red, clear red, and gray mix I tossed on it thought.

Thanks for your comments Ub3r, always appreciate you input and observations.

Wings are VERY difficult, I shy away from them as well. All types of wings and feathers *shudders* they are tough. You still did a great job, Jay. I'm only giving a bit of feedback on them that the camera isn't picking up on the hard work you did on them. Cameras are all possessed with some kind of evil magicks!

Thanks Everyone for they're votes.

Such a challenge is every way imaginable.

Thanks Little Bluberry.

I posted that parts/pieces photo to let everyone know how intimidating that

miniature was.  Small, Sharp, many pieces.  Even the head goes on crocked.

The violin is a bear, and that wand in impossible.

It makes you grow, and get inventive when gluing together.

Good luck when you do yours,it is a lot of fun.

CONGRATULATIONS on overcoming your fears to produce a LOVELY CREATION. You just keep getting better with each new piece you master. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you Malefactus;

Your compliment made me smile, and enjoy the hard work that went into doing this mini.

I think you beat me in the compliment department with this comment, that is very very well done !

LOL

Thanks again.

She may have been fiddly to put together but you persevered and did a wonderful job of painting her!

      Here's a rabbit I'm working on. I still have a ways to go, but he's starting to take shape. 
      Feedback is always welcomed and appreciated. Thanks for taking a look!

      Hi everyone, here is a picture of the Cat Critter Group. I'm taking a short break and I'll be working on these guys base.
      I will mount them on 2 inches square base and then build a diorama with inserts to display them. The same kind of display I made for the Fox Critter, except I won't be using magnets.
      My plan is to build a ruined castle throne room where nature has regained it rights. This why I can manage to blend the miniatures base in the scenery. Let me know what you think about this idea.

      Hi everyone, here is DSM8028, Miss Bean the Cthulhu Cat Ninja. This six-piece model was sculpted by David Summers for Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms Anthropomorphic Animals line. I glued all the pieces together before painting the model. The different parts are; the body, the tail, the scabbard, the arm that holds the katana and the two wings.
