Moving right along. Yaw got any good recipes for cool white and warm white? And what is that weird cylinder thing?

Nice start!

The skin is nice, you could apply a little flesh wash to bring more depth maybe.

There's actually a good bit, the flash is just screwing with it. That said, I'll probably be revisiting it before I'm done.

You’re off to a nice start. I love the rich blue. The concept art for this figure shows the cylindrical container as maybe wicker. Some other herbalist figures and images show them with some sort of wicker pack to carry their harvest. So maybe that is what it is meant to be.

It's unfortunately molded smooth and I have absolutely no idea how to do a free hand wicker weave.

I am not an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express one time...

 

@Wren had some good advice on how to apply fabric texture, which would be close to what I would try to do: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/74421-how-to-painting-fabric-fabric-texture/

 

My gut instinct says that this would be a good exercise to attempt some texturing, and I don't think it should be too challenging as the shape is a single cylinder. Maybe someone more experienced with textures would be able to chime in, as I am far from a texture expert. Otherwise I would eyeball some reference pictures of what looks cool and try to replicate that. Just depends on how much time you want to sink into that part, but as it is molded it is a a simple cylinder that will need a bit of love to have it appear interesting.

 

Worst case scenario is you reset and cover the crosshatching and go with leather or alternatively glass.

I was actually starting to think wood might be the way to go.

      Half-ogre fighter from Bones 4!  Initially thought this model was going to be a gunmetal from top to bottom but it hides a surprising amount of variety with little patches of skin, leather, wood and...in my case at least, scales hidden throughout.  SKU provided is for the metal version, doesn't look like this fellow is getting a release outside the Kickstarter?

      Here's a fun and simple one for you this week!

      Owlbears are one of my favorite D&D creatures.  They're just such a silly concept and I love them.  Any scenario were I could use a bear, I swap out for one of these guys instead.  However, despite owning several different owlbear models, I have avoided painting them for a long time out of fear of ruining them.  Finally decided to give one a shot.

      What kind of Owls should I use as inspiration next?
       
      What mini did you put off painting for too long?

      This is Mavaro, Iconic Occultist sculpted by Bobby Jackson from the Bone 4 Core Pathfinder Iconics II subset. This is now available on the Reaper store as SKU: 89051. He reminds me of a bard who went for oration as his talent.

      Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it.
       
      Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      A winter storm buried my part of the globe in snow last night so I'm filling a bit chilly.  So today's the perfect day to show off these frigid little birds from Bones 4.

      These were a fun little set, though they took me longer to do than I anticipated.  So much black and white really killed my motivation.  Glad they're done and decently satisfied with the results.  They make a nice addition to my winter collection.  If you want to see more of my wintery minis, check out my ongoing Frostrun Project Here
