Thank you! And I am happy to be onboard the forums. I am new to painting but skilling up.

 

You're new to painting?! ::o:

 

If so, that's just crazy. Are you aware that red is one of the most difficult colors to tackle when painting minis? Some painters struggle for years trying to make it look nice. Yours not only looks excellent, you even gave the dress fabric a completely different reflective effect from her skin. Not a lot of new painters doing that. Mad props!

As of this post I've been painting for 4 months. I watch and read a lot of tutorials about different techniques, then give them a shot. For red, I've learned to avoid mixing in white (which makes pink), but instead start with a dull, dark red, and highlight up to a more brilliant, bright red. My camera doesn't really show that transition well here.

 

Thank you for the kind comments.

      This is my third(!) attempt to paint Sugar. She almost ended up back in a bowl of Simple Green but this time I persevered. Her eyes aren't perfect but I'm happy with the way she came out — although not 100% sure about her hair — and I'm getting better at painting white. The sad-looking teddy is from the City Scenics Back Alley Accessories set by TTCombat.

      This figure is next on the agenda.  I cleaned up mold lines, cut off the “base” part of his integral base, washed him and mounted him on a Reaper 1 inch base.

      "Bliss"
      Needed a civilian type for a game, and this was the best I find in my lead mountain.
      Dunno why, but I keep seeing him as one of those beer-making monks carrying a keg on his back.
      So I painted him as one who just "sampled" the merchandise and really liked the sample.
      The nose and cheeks were more "ruddy" IRL but doesn't show up well in the pictures.
      There is a lightish line at the top of the belly where I tried to repair the paint job after accidently flicking some dark wash on it.
      The line isn't really visible IRL but clearly seen in the pictures.
       
      Thanks for looking.
       
      *Edit
      And if something looked odd with my montage, it's because the second picture got flipped when I was joining the four of them together. Just noticed this.
