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.

Nice work!

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.

      I've decided I need to get better about finishing things. And at speed painting. 
       
      So. Enter my May painting challenge. For every day in May, I am going to paint a townsfolk mini from Bones 4 from start to finish. These minis will be painted to at least a tabletop+ standard but getting to a display standard is the goal.
       
      I only have 28 minis I count as townsfolk from Bones 4,  though...which means the last 3 will be adventurers (1 of which is not Bones 4) for my players and my Starfinder character.
       
      And so, we begin with day 1.
      Today's mini is:

      The milk maid! I really wish Bones 4 minis photographed as good as they look.
       
      Here I go!

      I can't believe I haven't posted anything here since October.  Well I managed to finishes some Zombicide mini's back in February.  Camera went and broke on me so I've been procrastinating on taking show offs with my cellphone.  But I decided I might as well.
       
      Here is my Grom from Zombicide.  He's was a promotional figure with I got with the Kickstarter. He was painted up to be a gaming piece.  I tried to keep to the art work somewhat.


       
      Thanks for any C&C you feel to give.

      Well, awhile ago I started making some terrain for my Frostgrave Dark Alchemy solo mini campaign.  Longish story....Then squirrels happened.  I then decided not to wait to finish my terrain, and just go with what I had made and not painted.  I'll nether confirm nor deny that I also used Lincoln Logs to make wall to fill out that first board (and there are no picture left to prove it). That round went well.  I then managed to finish up building the hirst arts wizard tower in a ruined form.  Next round went way worse... TPK.  You take 4 character and your wizard or apprentice.  They all got taken out by a series of bad dice rolls.  The bad dice roll continued and I failed all my survival rolls for the characters in that mission.  Well I decided I really wanted to finish this piece so here is a thread showing the before painting it.
       
      Here is some shots of built with my now deceased WIzard, who is roughly the same size as Sir Forscale.

      Ok, Here I go starting another WIP.  I had the hankering for Frostgrave only no one around who wanted to try.  So I decide to finally give the Dark Alchemy solo scenarios a try.  I had skeletons, rats, and a stand-in for the alchemical monstrosity.  I looked around and thought, hey those WWWOZ Tin man painted up red and gold would look cool as the FIre-Flingers for the final scenarios.  I also decided I only wanted to paint them as gaming pieces.  I haven't really posted anything cause my camera broke, and I really haven't wanted to pick up another.  So I'm starting this WIP to practice with my phone camera, as well as post here a little more often.
       
      Here was the first of four I need for the scenario, as it stands at the moment.  Photo work still in progress as well:

       
      Unfortunately, I had a TPK in scenario 2.  The scenario called for Wizard or Apprentice and 4 of soldiers for the mission.  They all went down, and I rolled unbelievable less than 5 for all of them on the survival roll.  I'm less than inspired to complete these guys now.  but I'll carry on and hope that the apprentice can survive the final encounter with whats left of the warband when I finish.
