I love this sculpt, and I think you did an amazing job with it!  I especially love how vivid and bright the blue is.  It is also a very interesting interpretation of it, most I have seen have him blonde haired and wearing earth-tone colours.  Great work!

I love the blue!  I am getting ready to try some NMM gold on my current piece and I hope it turns out half as well as yours!  Although I am going for a colder gold.

Thanks! I used GW's Thorin as inspiration for the colours.

Great NMM gold, I have trouble with that myself. Do you have a recipe you want to share?

 

 

Sure, I used Chestnut gold as a base and highlight with palamino gold, then lemon yellow and lastly white. I shaded with a 50-50 mix of brown liner and chestnut gold. I glazed the whole surface with very very think layer of clear yellow. I am glad you like it! Incidentally, the yellows on the tunic are exactly the same colours as well but with burgundy wine added in the shadows.

      Hi folks!
       
      Today I started painting #03836 "Jakob Janssen, Monk" for our friend Jakob. Sending him some good vibes during this time and excited to finish this and ship it his way! I started with skintones and I'm currently working on painting him with a big ol' George Clooney smile  
       
      I want to finalize my color scheme but I'm really struggling! Many great painters have already posted photos of their version of this mini and I want to do something different than what's already been done. Here are the three I'm considering:
       
      The traditional Shaolin monk color scheme Iron Fist (Marvel) color scheme? (green & yellow) Halfling Monk (Pathfinder) color scheme? (green, red/orange, yellow with freehand insanity) Others??  
      HALP! The more options I research, the less decisive I get. Going to check back in tonight to see what folks think since I'll need to decide before my livestream tomorrow morning. At the end of the day, no matter what color scheme I choose, I'll do my absolute best to make sure it's something that will hopefully bring @JakobJanssen some creative joy   I'll check back in soon. Thanks in advance for your thoughts & suggestions!!

      Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors!
       
      As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome!
       
      Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.
