You can be proud of this!

And about the newer blue cloth?

He took it from his last kill, even an Undead Giant wants to look nice every now and then..

Thanks for the comments.  @Glitterwolf I'm telling everyone the blue is new because he just wants to look pretty, is that so wrong? ::P:  @jonfreeman thank you for the compliments on the textures.  He would definitely not fit on a base that size.  Without counting my base he is 14 cm from sculpted base to the tip of his dagger.  His sculpted base is 95mm wide by 75mm front to back.  The hammer extends a bit past the base so counting that it is 80mm.  The sculpted base doesn't really extend very far in any direction and doesn't even go as far as the hammer so even if you cut the base off he wouldn't fit.  So you asked how big is he?  He is HUGE.

 

And I want to name the hammer Graveyard Smash (as in monster mash, it was a graveyard smash). ::D:

This guy looks great! I like the pop of blue, and I really love the wood grain you've done.

 

And yeah, this mini is gigantic! Mine is based on a CD, and he looks right at home... Maybe like he's about to outgrow the CD!

@Sanael I saw yours quite a while ago and always remembered the squish mark in the mud that you did.  I didn't remember until I looked it up last night that it was you who painted it.  Thanks for the compliment, I always admired yours!  Did you cut any of the sculpted base off or is it all just hidden under the texture paste?

Hey, thanks! 

Yeah, his whole base is under the pumice. His legs are spindly enough I think it's be really hard to work with him if you removed the integral base.

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!

      I decided to try the new hotness of the color shifting paints. I am really impressed. I hope you all enjoy my version of the clockwork dragon.
