Okay, I promise I'll finish one of these threads one day. But in the meantime I've started painting the Bones Sphinx. I've already painted up the wings, I've just got a few little things to do. I do want to thank @Pochi for the inspiration for the wings.

Did a wash on the wings to bring out the feathers a little more, need to work on the details on the "eyes" on the inside of the wings simce the was brought them down a lot more than I'd have liked it to.

Working on the highlights and shadows still but going to go ahead and do the eyes because I really don't want to mess up the face.

I think the eyes look great! They really look like the ones from hieroglyphics :)

 

 

 

Thanks! I accidentally painted over half of her left eye in trying to fix the rest of the face. So, I need to try to fix that before I go further.

I /think/ I've got them as even as I can. Also, now with eyebrows! Need to figure out how to smooth things out a bit so I really don't have to strip it.

I put some eye shadow on and a little lip color. Not sure how I feel about it. Thoughts?

 

 

It's nice, although I think she might look nicer with darker lips. Like a dark reddish brown. It's subtle, but can accentuate the cat element on this specific figure. I googled for some images to kinda show what I mean. Although, if you are looking to give her a more glamorous look I think you did a nice job.

      Since Callie is coming to a close, I have been preparing the Oxidation Beast.
       
      I have one in metal also, so I will paint both together.
       
      I had some 40mm hollow, round lipped bases that seem like a good fit.  I used some styrene model train cobblestone for one, and sculpted dressed stone tiles for the other.
       

       
      I plan for one to use the 5th Edition Monster Manual color scheme (Bones)

       
      And the metal one to follow the Pathfinder Bestiary 1 color scheme.  It has a red with black stipple color scheme.

      Next up, a thundering of Giants from Reaper Miniatures Bones 4.  I went for 3 different skin tones this time.

      Speed paint! I’m happy with it though. There’s a lot to paint from the Kickstarter.

      I love this model.  Even with her slightly too-long sword hilt and bendy sword.  I straightened it, but it has slowly bent again.
      This is a figure to represent a female paladin of Sarenrae for our Pathfinder Reign of Winter campaign: a redhead whose favorite color is green.  That is why she is on a snow base.
      I wanted to spend a lot of time on her, and am very happy with the blending on the gray NMM.  It took about 3 rounds of painting transitions then glazing over the lines to smooth everything out.
      I tried a little weathering to the leather scabbards and belt to make them look scratched from adventuring use. 
      This was also the first time I tried giving a female figure makeup: blush, eye shadow, and lipstick.  I'm not sure how good that came out, I'll let you all tell me.
      The sword blade was the least successful part.  It just didn't want to cooperate, which is due in part to the softer details on the casting.
      I hope you like her as much as I do.  C&C Welcome.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
       
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!
