CK003.thumb.jpg.80266fd350adcd381820f8bb12838627.jpgI started working on this several days ago.  Few Tricky spots (sword sheath wants to be flat against body, bends as you paint.

The piece has some DEEP recesses, and it's going to be fun playing with the darks, shadows and lights.  I experimented on hair and beard

to see what they will look like highlighted.  Some washes will bring those under control.  Think a snow capped plinth, or flowered one might

be in order.  This piece needs a well thought out base !

Here are a couple photo's to show where I am going with him.

Wow, very cool mini and I love the start you've got.

 

Are the hand/sword supposed to be at that angle or did it bend? It just seems like an unnatural position for the wrist.

The hand and sword were one piece, not bent.

Look at it from different angles...The scabbard is the bear,

going to leave that until the end, paint and never touch again..ROFL.

Thanks for responding.

That's a very nice Viking sculpt!  ^_^  

Jeg tenker ogso lilblubær  I think it is also littlebluberry !

I just remembered you are also part of the scandisc club with Citrine, and a few others.

I'm going through my Norsk vocabulary again since I want to be in Norge in May.

Just started to paint again, and, as usual, I got carried away.

This is the direction I am heading in now. 

A bit further advanced...LOL..

Feels good to be at it again.

Oh, wooden base now has a rusty brown stain to it.

Comments/hints, advice, thoughts greatly appreciated at this stage.

      Dark Sword Miniatures DSM7461 Male Warrior with Crossbow, sculpted by Jeff Grace.  Painted this up for one of the players in my D&D game.  I'm painting every day, with lots of interesting projects I wouldn't have thought to try thanks to people who have been sending commissions my way.

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.

      Since I have moved to Portland, I have FINALLY gotten my painting desk, and miniatures set up in front of a window.
      I've started working on them.  My plan is to set up a royal tomb using 1000 year old oak tree bark, and two Tom Meirer
      elven guards.  This is what I have done so far.  I may have to build the tomb higher, and the placement of the guards is
      just to get them in the picture.  Work in Progress.  So this is my new beginning on the West Coast.
