I wish we could have seen your steps on painting the skin and hair! 


I am really impressed by what you have so far!


Unfortunately when I get in the groove, I forget to take pictures and it would be hard to lay down steps for the skin as I constantly work back and forth between colors. 


Fortunately though, I restarted the hair so I will try to record the steps. I started with a full basecoat of Blackened Brown then a rough coat of Earth Brown on the strands. I ended for now with a similar layer of Chestnut Gold and up next I will start roughing in directional highlights. 


Oh, I also finished the leather and eyes.

Hair is done. Smoothed out the previous steps and fine tuned the highlights and shading. Lots of back and forth layering and glazing. Colors used from dark to light: Blackened Brown, Earth Brown, Chestnut Gold, Palomino Gold, Buckskin Pale, Golden Blonde, and Linen White.

Quite impressive! Thanks for sharing




After looking at the pictures, I might do some more work on the hair as the highlights are not really showing up. But it also looks like my lights might be washing it out so it may just be the pictures.

Alright did some adjustments on the hair. Mainly increasing the highlights on the “light” side as well as adding a bit more Palomino Gold to make it slightly more yellow. Then I worked on toning the “dark” side down with some glazes of Blackend Brown. I think that help define the lighting situation, still not perfect but better than it was. I also started basing the metallics using various mixtures of Pure Black and Aged Pewter.


Also I adjusted my lights for these photos and they are pretty close to what he looks like in hand.

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin). 


      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 



      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      Sandra Garrity makes some of my favorite Dwarves, and the detail on this one stood out. It doesn't show up much in the picture, but there are some Norse Futhark runes on the blade of the sword in blue that only appear if I rotate the figure 45% left or right. Also, I love dwarves in green.

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
