This was my entry for the most recent Facebook quarterly contest. Not a winner, but I'm pretty proud of him. Mostly, he was a lot more interesting to paint than I initially thought. I like these little contest sometimes because many times, they push me to paint something I normally wouldn't consider and I end up liking them.
I had a lot of trouble deciding what color flame it should be. Started yellow, then went green, but I wasn't happy. Then after some research for inspiration it finally turned blue! Which I'd never done before and I figured would be nice against the orange skin. I ended up not taking the OSL too far across the mini. Got a little gun shy as I tried to do it, it wasn't working out to my satisfaction, and so I pulled it back and repainted his skin back to it's original colors. The perils of working with a colored flame I wasn't very familiar with. So in the end, I just had it tickling up his armband.
So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.
