Very nice!

Her second mini looks way better than my first minis when I started out.

 

All I can say is, keep practicing, try more shadows and highlights.

But this is a great second mini, it already has eyes!

Tabletop ready!

Excellent work.  She should try simple basing to level up too.  Just some sand painted up like dirt goes a very long way to  make a figure seen finished.

she's got a solid start; very fine brush control with those details.

 

yeah, I think she's fine to start working in more advanced techniques (like the others have said).  Definitely has got the basics down.  ^^

Like everyone else said, nice job. She even went for the eyes, which is a tough concept to execute. Tell her to keep it up, progress over perfection is the goal.

Solid job. Great for second mini. It looks like she has good brush control, which is a plus. Now it's just a case of refining the skills she wants to get better at. Practice is the key.  One thing she can do to make the mini stand out and highlight the paint job is to add some basing.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments! She is very self conscious about her painting skills, and I hope your words encourage her to continue painting minis ::D:

We want you both to keep posting your work. Keep it up! Cheers.

 

Also, tell her great choice on the mini. This is one of my favorite sculpts of Boromir, who is amazing.

Very nice job for only a second mini!  The eyes look good, and she got all those little fiddly bits.  Keep painting and practicing!

      My next project is these Bloodreavers and Slaughterpriest for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer Quest. Enjoy!

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      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.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      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.

      The last of the drow I chosen to try to do this month. Again wanted to try different things, i.e. hair color, etc. different colors to see how they work. And here I went with the usual red clothing thinking it'll help the contrast of the green.
