Great job @planetmut ! I think these colours are definately the best choice for this mini. The OSL wasn't as difficult as you may think, it's just a series of thin yellow glazes which, with each subsequent layer, get stronger as I got nearer to the lava.

 

Anyway, thanks for the mention & don't worry, I've called off the bloodsucking lawyers! :poke:

Thanks for not setting the lawyers on me :-) I  regret not at least trying some OSL on this figure, as let's face it, if I'd messed it up then it would simply be a case of covering the mistakes with black, hardly the most complicated of jobs.

yeah, it's always surprising how much an slight color hue to black adds character.

 

Even in print — 100% black is dull compared to true black (100% CMYK)

      This in The Girl from Bombshell Miniatures and was one of my entries in the Painter's category at ReaperCon. I started painting her a couple of years ago, mainly to test the peachy color of the cloth. I decided to quickly finish her for ReaperCon as I wanted to have a Bombshell entry. She was not the figure chosen for judging in the main contest but she did receive a silver medal (dog tag) in Bombshell's manufacturer awards.

      I couldn't come up with a scheme I liked for this guy, then me and friend were talking about tv shows we used to watch,  and she said Gargoyles and it just sorta clicked. Kinda simple but I think it turned out ok.

      This is the Bones version.  I used her for an experiment with Contrast paints.  I think it worked ok, but the softer detail gave a less desired effect -- at least on the armor. I had to go over that again with an ink wash.  The red came out very bright.  Maybe I could have gone over that with ink, too, but I liked the vivid contrast. She is a vampire, after all.  I drybrushed a little silver metal for highlights on her armor, looks good in hand, but the flash caught it and it looks like white spots in the pic.

      I thought people might enjoy watching me helplessly flailing about as I attempt to paint an exceptionally intricate mini.
       
      This is Tzandi:-
       

       
      She's one fourth of my Monkey King Gang.
      Made a little progress today:-
       

       
      Painted her skin.
      This started as a base of Elf Flesh, was shaded with Flesh Wash and then highlighted with Elf Flesh and 1:1 Elf Flesh/Light Flesh.
      She then got lips of 1:1:1 Elf Flesh/Light Flesh/Warlord Purple, and dots of Brown Wash for eyes and between her lips.
      I had made a little bit of a mess painting her hands, so I went back over them carefully with Flesh Wash, just to give her separate fingers again.
       
      I automatically started painting her bosom as skin before realising she's wearing a dress under her corset, so that will be painted over eventually. The next job is hair and her ridiculously tiny hair ribbons.

      Presenting Slimux (A Demon Gardener) and Mulch (His loyal Plough Snail), characters from the Nurgle Demon faction for the Warhammer games by Games Workshop.
       
      Glad to get this one finished at last, it's been sitting at around 80% done for about a year.
      I'm really happy with how Mulch turned out, less so with Slimux, I think I just used too many similar colours on him (and yellow eyes wasn't a great idea either).
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
