Like this a LOT, the simple glint on all the metal surfaces is very effective.

You are really good at highlight and shadow location placement! That's the toughest part of NMM to me right now. 

 

C&C.... he needs eyebrows :poke:

Formidable! Love the flowing cape, looks like silk or satin. How do you get that effect?

 

I used gory red (09278) as base and a mix of gory red and black from Vallejo model colour as shadow. Highlights were gory red with white (reaper HD 29842). at this stage, things would look very pink.  I then glaze the whole thing with very thin layers of gory red and fresh blood (09279) to tie everything together and restore the redness.

Truly fascinating! NMM is perfect and the satin look of the cape is uncanny. Well done!

 

Thank you for such kind words.

Amazing work. I'm loving the blends for the red on the front; smooth and clean. For the back side, the reds could use some shading in those curves.

Very nice!  Love all that great NMM!

 

Don't be afraid to take the NMM up to Pure White (or very close), though for that extra glinty-ness!

 

Thanks for the advice. FYI, it was your red NMM vampire video that set me on the path of NMM.

      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!!

      This model is a Dark Sword Miniatures masterpiece of a sculpt by Jeff Grace. Never before have I seen so many tiny etchings on plate armor, especially on a figure that is barely 1.6 inches high. I feel a bit let down by my red OSL, but then again, this was only my second real attempt at the process, which is surely one I need to practice more.

      Hi guys.  Here is my painted Bones Succubus.  Parts of her are a hot mess but I am so happy with her!!  I pushed through sone issues I was having and there are so many spots I learned on her.  For starters she has the first makeup I ever put on a mini.  She has eyeshadow, blush, lipstick complete with little white light dot on her lower lip for fun and a beauty mark!  I started with slightly less pronounced makeup but then she's a succubus, she would have exaggerated makeup I think.  The unfortunate thing about her is her right cheek has quite an indent and then a mold line a little past that.  I disguised the mold line by giving her a "lady sideburn" to match the one sculpted on the other side but there's nothing I can do about the indent.  Then her wings, for the first time I was able to get more of a variation in the colouring which I tried with my bat demon and ended up covering because I didn't like it.  Her dress could have used a bit more but I was done and I'm still working on the layering/highlighting in general.  One thing that still bothers me is the rough look of my paint jobs when I'm done.  I paint with a wet palette so thinning isn't an issue I don't think and don't put coats on top of drying paints so that's not causing it.  Hope everyone likes her as much as I do.  I even have a second copy of her to do later in my painting journey.
