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..

A)  amazing work!  the textures you put on all the different materials really paid off

B)  how big is this boy?  Would he fit on a 50x75mm base?

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.

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.

      I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals.  It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes.  I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint.
      Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast.  C&C welcome.

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.
