He looks great!  

 

      You don't need to worry about whether his arms are supposed to be sleeved or not, as there is no "official" way to paint a mini.  It's art and open to interpretation.    I painted a bunch of minis for the Frostgrave rules, which are set in a frozen city, so I did the same thing with some of the figures I painted; adding sleeves and leggings to arms and legs that were intended to be bare.    I think the black and red looks really effective on him.

What kind of paints are you using, and did you use any sealer on it?

 

You may want to get some matte varnish to use, at least on the clothes and bare skin to cut down on the glare.

 

Around his neck, consider using a thin black strip to separate the shirt and skin properly(lining) because there's a bit of overlow of the red onto the skin.  (You may have too much paint on your brush?)

 

It's a good first mini, looking forward to seeing your next.

 

But feel free to post a WIP, so that we can come with suggestions and helpful tips while you're working.

He looks great, especially for a first go! If you look through the minis on the website, you'll see a lot of instances where someone paints skin vs another painting on clothing. I actually like the way the sleeves look. 

 

Also, these guys really lend themselves to the red don't they? If he's looking for a gang to join I hear there's one recruiting right now :lol:

Congrats, he looks very good for your first figure; he light years ahead of what my first one looked like.:winkthumbs:

Don't worry about the sleeves.  Unless you're chatting with the original sculptor, there's not usually a right or wrong way.  Interpretation is your artistic license.

Exactly what he said.

      Hi everybody! 
       
      Let me show you my first tries at painting miniatures:

       
      I went heavy with the dark wash but it was on purpose in order to have an  effect "out of dirt".
       
      Don't hesitate if you have any comments or tips!

      So I needed a break from all the Bones 4 minis. And dug into the Bones 3 stash for variations sake.
      I found one of my old modules -The Village of Hommlet, and spent some time reading. Ah, The Moathouse! Brings back memories!
      And I got inspired to do the Bandits from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion, as they were similar in style to the ones I recently painted. And to flesh out the band, I added a couple of other Bones 3 minis that were in the same drawer, and that I thought might fit in a band of robbers.
      One quick paint job later:
       

      77507 Bandit Leader
       
       

      Just add the bones 4 ones to this lot, and there we have a goodly group of bandits.  Or a unit of irregulars / rabble or whatnot in some wargame or other.
