The Flower Knight

Recommended Posts

Hi aku-chan,

 

I think you can be absolutely pleased with him ... errr ... her ... errr ... it. The miniature came out pretty great! I like the colorful presentation and especially how all the colors come together and create an outstanding overall effect.

 

I think though that some improvements would be possible. From my point of view - maybe it's my screen, maybe my eyes - it looks like her cape ... dress ... whatever ... is just a single color of purple.

I would absolutely LOVE to see some shading, like blending or something on the fabric. Like some blended in of shadows or highlights. That would give such an area way more definition and add to the effect the rest of the figure creates.

 

Then again: If you did that and it's only not visible because of my bad view, never mind what I said.

The Knight is a SPLENDID looking Fellow, another of your BEAUTIFUL creations...you have developed a readily identifiable style. VERY WELL DONE!

The background story was fascinating. I have never heard any of the background fluff for the Kingdom of Death before.

Beautiful crisp painting and wonderful colors. The base also really tells the story and the vivid green of the grass is perfect. If you want to take it to an even higher level, pick out some of the vegetation on the back/hand with other shades/colors/highlighting.

Your lines are SO tight. Great color sense too. I suck at that... 

 

BTW I really enjoyed the back story. What is void space in your campaign???$??!?

There is some basic highlighting and shading going on in there, I'm just not very good at painting capes and cape-like things.

That's actually my own fan-fiction take on Kingdom Deaths lore, the proper stuff has a much more dream-like, fairy tale quality.

Sometimes I just like to think up backgrounds to my minis while I paint them.

I did hit some of the leaves with a green/yellow highlight, but I think it was too subtle and kind of disappeared after varnishing.

Void space is an alternate dimension that scientists opened a portal in to in the search of an alternate energy source, it turned out to be full of monsters and dark, reality-warping energy that escaped and messed up the world (that seemed like a decent explanation for the general weirdness of the Kingdom Death setting).

Just give it a try. Do some more! It would absolutely fit your work!
