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!

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
       
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
       
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-
       

       
      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!

      Presenting the Leather Queen, a Pin-up version of the Leather Armoured Survivors from Kingdom Death, hopefully she's wearing just enough to not need a nudity link.
       
      I'm pretty out of practice painting Pin-ups so she's a little rough around the edges, and I never could figure out a way to make her hair look like hair, but at least it's another one finally finished.
