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!

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!
