That looks fantastic! The contrast on the skin/fur is crazy. What kind of paint did you use?

Reaper and Vallejo paints.  For the skin, specifically - Burgundy Wine, Burnt Red (Vallejo), Rust Brown, Palamino Gold

The way you did his skin/fur is awesome!

Love his white/grey muzzle, he has aged with dignity!

I wavered a little about the cloth.  But it's mostly on his back and not his front, so it doesn't really detract from the importance of his face and adds a little pop, so I let it be. And depending on the light, the tone of it actually changes, probably because of my color choices for layers.

      I LOVE MINOTAURS!
       
      Beastmen, in general. Things like Dark Sword's Anthropomorphic Animals helps feed this love as well. But, especially after 10+ years of playing practically nothing but Tauren in World of Warcraft, I've grown very attached to minotaurs. When I saw a bunch of these beautiful bovine people created by Zealot Miniatures (and one in particular that reminded me of one of my WoW characters), I snatched up a bunch of them and I needed to paint at least one right now.
       
      Originally, I wasn't going to do a WIP thread. But as much as my husband loves the end products of my hobby, he is far less enthusiastic than I am about the details of every step. And I'm having so much fun with the process, I feel the need to share.
       
      First, I primed in gray. Then, this morning, I blocked all the areas with base coats.
       

       
      Then in the afternoon, I started on the skin.  Since it's a smooth skinned mini, but I wanted a fur texture, I decided to try something I haven't done on a mini before, pointillism. These are the colors I'm using -
       

       
      Started with bringing up the skin color with a layer of Burgundy Wine mixed with a touch of Burnt Red over about 90% of the skin. You can just see the difference of the back vs. the arm and leg.
       

       
      After that, I started the pointillism, going up slowly in tone with successive blends of the other colors. Not quite just dots of color, but tiny little lines with the tip of a #1 brush. The lines generally start out in a certain direction, but then go a little more wild the lighter the color.
       

       
      Went back and forth with all the colors to get the texture and shading I liked and this is the result.
       

       
      So that's what I'll be doing for a little while.

      Quickly knocked this one out for my dungeons.

      I wanted to paint a bigger terrain piece, so ... tada. I added skull piles at the torches, because they are simply too easy to break (which is what happened to the left) to not support properly.
