It looks very good, if you want more contrast do a higher highlight on the most outer flames but I really like it as is

Looks good!


I agree it needs a little more yellow and a bit of white.

Be careful though, fire is bright in the centre and darker at the edges, not the other way around!

Thanks everyone! I did want to make an attempt at flames before doing something...unfortunate to a more expensive mini.


I did use yellow for the highlights, unfortunately it was almost all obliterated by a later glaze. <_< I keep failing to take highlights far enough. 


Also, I apparently need to watch more painting videos, cuz that would have been helpful. Just wish the first step wasn't “grab your airbrush”.


Ah well, it’s not like anyone is ever going to see my minis outside of the Show Off forum.

This mini takes dry-brushing really well. I did it twice with green-yellow flame like the Monster Manual, and with yellow-orange-reds.

Starting with buckskin pale/linen white 1:1 and getting darker and trying to get the edges furthest from the centre darkest (so more reds or greens as appropriate).

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      The second mini I finished while a bunch a y'all were at Reapercon. 
      Very tabletop quality, but there it is. I'll do more to the base once I have a few more things done, I'll batch it out. 
      I love this mini; Julie Guthrie made it super gross!

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.
