That dress turned out amazing.  Great sculpting work - until you pointed it out, I had no idea that the figure was so extensively converted, which is surely the sign of impressive worksmanship. The tartan pattern looks well done, but there's a lot of it.  Kinda to the point that it's almost distracting from the rest of the piece.  Also, I think that the creature's skin could be slightly less green.  I don't know that I would do anything too too drastic, because you've done a good job with the colors to focus the viewer's eye on the archer (which should be the focus), but right now, he kind of blends into the rest of the base and gets lost.  Maybe a hint of purple in the shadows to set him apart?  Anything else I might have had to say looks like it was covered pretty well by the judges' comments.

 

Overall, a fantastic job, and a well-earned Silver!  I can't imagine it would take much to bump something like this up to Gold next year.

I remember seeing this one in passing, but I didn't look closely at it. (So thank you for sharing so I can better appreciate it!) That said, I agree with @leolson79. When I walked by slowly, taking in the entries on the table, I did not realize that there was a creature on the base. Even seeing the photo of it on the screen during awards, I still did not realize there was a creature on the base. It's obvious looking at it now, but I completely missed it at a glance. I agree it shouldn't be the focus of the miniature, though, and judges clearly look at everything much more closely than just at a glance. So, perhaps the balance is right and this is just a pitfall of not paying close attention.

I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
       
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
       
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
       
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
