I know how it feels, I've also been busy lately. It's such a good feeling to be able to work on a model after a hiatus.

I love the various shades of blue on its robe and the golden ornaments on the spell book. The colors you selected are perfect.

Yeah, hope to get back on track to some regular painting. I really do consider my painting my own form of yoga, so the more I do it, the more zen I'll be.  Even though I'm not sure if zen and yoga really belong together, but not going to nitpick my own self. 

 

For my gold I started out I think with Orange Brown and worked up and down from there. Other times I start out with Palomino gold.

 

Thanks!

Yeah it just works so well. What strikes me about this is the lighter gradient towards the face, which is in line with the highlights on the robe. It it really beautifully balanced in a way that’s hard to put my finger on, but the fleshtones are what set this off to me. Great job!!

LOL Mr, but just call me Daniel. I really went too far with the sarcasm when I set up my profile. I’m plagiarisng your bright style on a Dwarven brewer I’m painting now. All my stuff keeps coming out darker than I’d like so I’m referring back to your minis.

Please do, Daniel, and I'm glad I could serve as an inspiration.  In an attempt to keep a miniature bright. I use white primer and my base coat in theory is always the color I originally think I actually want to see.  Hope that helps a little!

Really like his robes - a piece to study for lighting! And the face is spot on. 

Lighting in theory is just from above I’d say, I didn’t plan anything special at least. And thank you for the face compliments. I don’t honestly remember if I used tanned highlights or fair skin as my base color but I didn’t want him too dark or tan because I figured he’d spend a lot of time cooped up inside studying magic or whatnot.

Thanks Glitterwolf! Kind of scary to hear I have a style. Years later they’ll call it moonglumesque!

Nice work. The green on the cloak adds a nice point of interest to the mini   

Thanks Krulebear! Not always but lots of times I like to give the inside of cloaks a different color for a bit of visual interest.

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!

      My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
       
      Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.

      Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing.  I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months.  For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly.  I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off.  Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished.  I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
       
      He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.  Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
       

       
      Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in. 
       
      So anyhow, hope you enjoy!

      These guys are really tiny, from back in the days when the word "miniature" really meant something.  They are based on 0.5" washers.
