I really like the color combinations.

 

Feedback:  the eyes are a bit rough, but I think painting eyes is one of the universal challenges.

Thanks! Eyes are super hard. This was my second attempt at painting eyes first, then skin. First time went better, these came out a bit big.

It's always a crap-shoot for me as well.  Don't be afraid to scrap what you've done and start over.  Painting the eyes first makes this more palatable.

 

Also, practice this:

This is what I have been trying to follow! It's a great tip. Working out well so far, I guess I just need to paint more

Very cool.  Practice will certainly help.  The Resolutionary Painting Challenges helped motivate me to paint more.  The challenge runs all year long, but is broken up into 6 bi-monthly groups.  The goal is to complete at least 52 figures throughout the year.

That's a great skin tone, very well achieved. My humble suggestion would be not to fret too much about the eyes.. As already stated its an advanced technique and requires much patience above all else. After 3 years it still takes me 5-10 tries to get it right and there are times that I just give up and settle for good enough. 

 

The good news is that, all you have to do is paint eyes. But dont get stuck on a specific mini, paint and move on. Sometimes the eyes are not very well sculpted and trying to get them right on such a mini can be counter productive. Sample many different eyes, try different techniques and you'll soon find them to be much easier.. Never a walk in the park but easier ^_^

Lovely!

 

Her skintone is beautiful!

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

As for the eyes. I think the trick here is to make them smaller, just use your skintone around the eyes some more till you got a tiny white circle/oval with the pupil.

You've done a really nice job on her; keep up the good work!

 

Like everyone said, eyes can be a pain, so just keep practicing.

 

Welcome to the forums, I look forward to seeing what else you paint!

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
