Nice!

 

Seeing your color picks, makes me want to paint this guy in green (ie a young Presto).

 

Nice work!

The kid and the color selection are wonderful! The precision on the eyes in fantastic! You can really see the blue and the reflection on the eyes. 

 

You asked for C&C, and I have some, but it truly is minor. The eyeliner could be either a lighter color, or thinner. I absolutely believe in darklining the eyes, and you did it splendidly. As a kid though, it might do better slightly more subtle. Like a medium dark brown instead of black. And the top of the hat could be highlighted a wee bit more, as it is the top of the figure, and it seems you overall have ambient sunlight as the goal for the lighting on it. 

 

Seriously though, well done. That kid is going to grow up to be a heck of a wizard!

He's adorable! I like that the book has writing. 

Yeah I wanted to be a bit more intricate.  But actual handwriting is only slightly better than that in the book.

Go for it!.  I'd like to see that.  Green was the second choice for me.

Thanks for the feed back.  I do really struggle with highlighting red, and your suggestion is a good one.  Ahh the eyes... I started off wanting a cartoon like feel.  But I see what you mean with the dark outlining, especially with little to none on the rest of the figure.

What colors did you use for the globe on the staff? Got a goblin that has a crystal ball & I'd like to try that.

It looks amazing! I like the sharp transition between the green, gold and red.

The base is also stunning. The path way idea is effective and inspiring.

Metalchaos beat me to it and said pretty much everything I was going to say. I'll say it anyway! The colors are so vibrant, really great! The face is so expressive which is impressive in itself considering the size. I like the chibi-esque look you gave him. And the base is wonderful! I am totally going to steal the base idea for something!

Blue liner mixed with ghost white to create the grey.  Then I gradually added ghost white up to white as the highest.

      Now the 2nd member of the pair from zombicide: Black Plague special character, Thalia.  The traveling companion of Grom.  These two are also going to serve as a Savage and Swordsman for my Ranger's of Shadowdeep warband.  Went with some NMM, some came out ok, other parts didn't.  In the end I decided to leave as is, Since I want to move on and get to playing the games.
       

       
      And the Pair

      Thanks for any C&C you give.

      Finally getting back to painting a bit more consistently and finishing things.  Here is one I finished recently, Theo from Zombicide: Wolfsburg.  I'm multi-tasking him to also serve as the ranger for my ranger's of shadowdeep warband.  Hoping to have my warband finished by the end of the month.
       
      Theo

      Thanks in advance for and C&C you give.

      Here is my most recent Townsfolk figure from the Bones 4 core set. He is also available in metal (SKU 03859). Two things I tried differently on this one were 1. no under-painting and 2. letting go. I usually apply an coat of German Camouflage Black-Brown over the whole figure to start when working with Bones. I know it has been shown many times that Bones are designed to go from blister to paint but I wanted to check it out for myself. I just went straight to the base colours, shading and highlighting with no issues.
       
      The second was more difficult. This was me telling myself to trust myself and the figure and not overwork the paint. I had to remind myself to pull back when I started thinking, "maybe I should add another blend or work that edge some more..." At first it was a little uncomfortable but after awhile everything sort of fell into place and I am happy with the results.

      This figure is available in metal sold as a single figure - Townsfolk: Sage. While I used the same base colours as my other townsfolk, I wanted to give the impression of somewhat fancier clothes. After shading and highlighting, I brightened the cloak and frock with GW inks (Biel-Tan Greeen and Carroburg Crimson respectively).
