This is fantastic. Really well painted, and the colors are amazing. 

 

The only critique I can offer, and it's very minor, because I think this looks great, is possibly more contrast on the skin. It's possibly just the photo, but a little more on the shadows in a few areas maybe. Again, I think it looks super great, and that's just me nitpicking (because I always like people to give me feedback on how I can be better).

 

Keep up the awesomeness, and keep posting the pics.

She is beautiful!  The blue highlighting makes it look like her dress is made of silk.

Thank you! Her dress is pretty simple so lots of areas to practice shading and highlighting without being too fiddly. One of my favorite parts is her little belly. Haha!

You are absolutely right about the skin. I was having a hard time getting the shade color right and still having her appear to be pale skinned. It got to the point where I was afraid I was overworking it and afraid of having too many layers of paint and having her start looking blotchy. Not a nitpick at all! I appreciate the comments. It helps me know what things I am getting the hang of and what things I still need to work on! Thank you!

The hair is amazing.

Thank you! I can't take all of the credit. I use Marsya's post as a guide and modify it a bit with the colors I have. I have used it for a couple figures now and it is very helpful.

You didn't overdo the highlights at all, she looks really, really great! The back of the skirt and the hair are the stand-outs.

I agree with Loim that the skin needs more contrast, especially next to the really great contrast that you got on the rest of the mini. I totally understand where you got tripped up though. Skin can be a total beast and easily overworked. It's a good thing to focus on practicing for anyone.

Wow! What a beauty! I think you did just the right thing with the highlights! Though she doesn't have all that much detail on her clothing, you managed to make her look amazing. I think with less highlights she may have looked a little more "boring". Fantastic painting :)

I tried giving her freckles, didn't like it so painted over it. I got a spot of blue ink on her cheek, and painted over it. I usually add a little sanguine base and a little blue to my shade color. It just didn't look right. The regular unmixed skin tone looked too orange. I lightened the mix with the blue and sanguine in it and used it to shade and it was "ok". Yeah, I agree that the skin needed more contrast but it just wasn't working. I have a "few" more minis I can practice skin on. Haha!

Wow, she is beautiful! The blue and purple color clothes is a very good choice, they contrast nicely with the gold. The hightlights on her dress and jewels, her hair, her eyes, the base as well are all very beautiful. She's definitively a noble mage. I think that the only thing tickling my eye was the piece of flock stuck to her dress. She's a cuty!

Thank you! The eyes....you are too kind. lol The right one...ugh! Of course I noticed the little sticky bit of flock as I was uploading the photos here. ::o: It tweezed right off so no dwarf mages were harmed in the flock removal! Haha!

      This is a Dwarf Lord Ragmir by Scibor monstrous miniatures, I got this for my nephew awhile back and just finished it. This thing had a lot of good details, and a cool base even if it was a little small, which is no longer an issue since I just mounted him on his stock base and then a metal knockout from an electrical box. 




       
      Thanks for looking!

      This lil guy had been sitting on my shelf for a while. Decided to tint some metallic w blue paint for his armor. Pretty happy how it turned out. As always, feedback is welcome

      I recently finished Anirion! It was time to add layering to my toolbox of techniques and he seems to be the go-to model for learning.
       
      Since by I now have (just) over 10 minis under my belt, I'm obviously an expert  so I felt confident enough to go with my own colors rather than the ones in the instructions (from Layer-Up kit). Still, even with my "vast experience", I've only painted beasts and monsters so far -- no fancy clothing on any of them -- so I was a bit nervous about messing up my first hero, but you gotta start somewhere. 
       
      I think he turned out great, but it went nothing like the videos one might find... And by that I mean it took me several painting sessions over a few weeks to finish him.

      So, I just had to show off this pic.  I'm playing in a 5e Rappan Athuk campaign, and needed to make 3 characters.  I chose to model mine after the characters from the old Lost Vikings video game.  
       
      In order from left to right:
      Olaf the Stout, Life Domain Cleric.
      Baelog the Fierce, Totem Warrior Barbarian.
      Erik the Swift, Battlenaster Fighter (my main).
       
      Sorry, I just really loved this picture.

      I liked painting the dark skin of this one, as opposed to the lighter skinned dwarves I've been doing.  I enjoyed this one a lot!  It'll finish out my trio of dwarves for the current campaign I'm in.
