Interesting!  Here and I would have thought the thing going on with the base was just reflecting the overall dynamism of the figure.  :D  (Swoosh!)  I mean, unless I'd really stopped and THOUGHT about it.  I think I'd just gap-fill between the bottom of the base and a more conventional plastic base (as you have it pictured) and work with that, using some epoxy putty.

 

Anyway, it looks awesome!  :)

Looks fantastic! 

I'd love to give more critique but you are far beyond my talent level.

 

Thanks, Schirf, but I disagree on the talent thing.  Your moorhound is a really good piece of work that shows you know how to shade and highlight different types of textures, you have good brush control and a good eye for colour.  If this directional lighting project inspires you then you should pick out a mini and try it.  You've got the necessary foundation skills.

He looks much better without the square plastic base, for sure.  He just doesn't stand up properly without some support.  I don't want to cut off the stone base because it really adds to the sense of light direction.  I may pop him off the square base and just build up a disc of greenstuff under him that keeps him basically level and not wobbly, and which is not as jarring visually as the square base.

I really appreciate your confidence! I actually just got the Bones 3 core set so, I should have plenty to practice with. Guess we'll see what happens. Thank you!
