More blue!! More base coating and some preliminary dark areas - tons more to do there. 

 

I discovered that Heather Blue looks totally gross as the mellowing hue for Dragon Blue. Midnight Blue and Twilight blue do well though.

Nice! I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at a animal bust (humanoid busts never interested me much )

 

looking good so far

 

He wasn't a costly one. 16pounds. However, shipping took a while, and casting quality is so-so. Also not mounted so I had to build that part and I don't have great tools for it. I am holding him by two nails that are loosely elmer's glued and sticky tacked to the back, and will be removed when it is time to mount this. 

I chose a critter for easier practice before tackling my human busts. Hopefully I can hide less-smooth transition areas in fur texturing lol. 

 

Blue is... because I wanted to.

Figone. I think it is one that the owner of Figone sculpted instead of distributing for another company.

If you order, just be prepared for a bit of a wait. Not CMON bad... but it seems like Figone is run as a one-man show, and from what I read, he lives in a small area of France and has a two hour bike ride to where he ships from, so he only ships every two weeks. If he misses one, you get a longer wait. Not a bad fellow, and did communicate when I inquired, but I wouldn't order stuff on a deadline.

looking at their site, that cape buffalo is tempting, i've always thought of them as really cool, majestic animals

 

There also very mean and vindictive!

Considered to be one of the most dangerous animals in fact.

 

And they will remember you!

 

That aside, yes beautiful animals.

I have been thinking about these busts as well, but right now I have like 12 busts waiting unpainted..

that's part of their charm! nothing more entertaining to me to see bully lions getting chased by that which they tried to hunt.

Plus buffalo will RESCUE each other. how cool is that? Instead of just fleeing when a fellow buffalo is being attacked, they'll come charging in as a huge group

 

there, i ordered it. I only have 2 busts, the dragons from RCon, so this'll be another i can try my hand at

I recently painted a Boxer Dog bust as my pet Brutus.( see Sig)

A few years ago I got challenged by Ub3r to paint a bust or large scale mini, I have grown fond of these since then.

      Finished up another 3d printed bust.  I have really been enjoying the different scale and different subject matter (I don't think I've ever painted an orc before). 
       
      Not 100% happy with the hair, but the strands are not as thin as I would have liked.  Picture is a little washed out but I have having issues of not enough light or too much.  And yes his left eye is milky on purpose and the whole reason I painted this piece. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking. 
       
      EDIT: and of course, now looking at the picture on my computer screen I can see that the wound on his face goes through his bottom lip too, and I missed it..    At well...

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      Quick paint job on this fun little bust! 
       
      Painted entirely with Pro Acryl paints from Monument Hobbies

      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.

      I hope this is ok as it is outside the fantasy/sci-fi realm but this is what I've been working on while taking a break from the Bones 4 core set. This is a 1/10 bust from Young Miniatures sculpted by Young B. Song, Templar Knight YH1837.
