It's great! I would maybe try and push the highlights on the beard and cape bit. Open the picture in some photo editing software and try upping the contrast a tiny bit and see what happens. Could also just be the photo. Also, a touch of dirt on the cape to help give it a bit of a lived in feel (always a scary step when you have nice blends already). The grass is especially well done. Did you use a static grass applicator?

Great wizard! I really like the magical effect on the orb. My only advice would be to upload larger pictures if possible. From what I can tell, the way you painted the leather is outstanding. Wish I could get leather to look that realistic. :winkthumbs:

Looks great indeed!

 

Like the others mentioned, a tad more highlights and I agree on the eyes.

But it looks great already as is.

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it!

All great advice.

Its funny, I wanted to put more highlights on just about everything on the miniature.

But was afraid I was going to "mess it up", so I just left the highlight where they are, thanks for that, now I know I need to push past that feeling.

I  really like the idea of adding dirt to the cape, I'm going to give that a try, thanks!

The grass is interesting because, I've wanted to experiment with the whole baking soda for ground cover but, didn't have any.

So, I used some Soft Flake Snow from Woodland Scenics that I had on hand, painted it a dirt color then sprinkled the static grass with my fingertips.

The results are okay, I think I'm just used to seeing the larger pieces for the ground.

Thanks again for the great advice and I'm excited about checking out your blog.

Later.

Looks great - I would outline the eyes to level up the face.

That's a great idea!  Will do and thanks.
