That looks like a blast to paint! Please let me know if you ever get that into a store, or make the STL available (as if I don't have enough to paint already).

 

I am NOT a sculptor. But one small crit that came immediately to mind was the dimples in the leather chair. Their location seems randomly placed. Now, I think random is obviously good, but that they're currently too random. For example, second render picture, on the inside chair wing/arm/head-level it has two wrinkles that seem to have been put in for texture. I think if the wrinkles had been put where the chair either bends because of the shape or because of age/use, it would have looked better. So for those two on the arm, I would have placed them at the curved front part and radially aligned with the center.

 

And maybe those two are correctly aligned, now that I look at it again. Maybe it just needed more of those.

 

Mind you, the wrinkles wouldn't stop me from painting it.

HI, 
Thought I would create my own topic so I can share the models I create. Crits and comments welcome.
This is my latest mini. Created just for fun. I think it should be called " The summoning" though I am open to ideas :)

Got a few pictures of the 3d print of this guy. Not the best photos but you get the idea.

You for a good job on this piece! Your level of exaggeration in the figure itself is well done, the composition is solid, and the narrative is easily readable. There are some minor issues (like the texture of the chair that others have mentioned), the edge studs seem to disappear as they get towards the top in the print, maybe enlarging them a bit to compensate would be a good idea. The monster itself is working overall, good design and silhouette, but IMO it could use a bit more texture in the main eye/body area (personal taste). 

Great piece, thanks for sharing!

Thanks for all the kind words

A couple of busts I am working on for fun. Sir Davos and Cercie. As you can see I kind of got bored with the hair but I like to think I captured just a little of the likenesses. They are both in a fairly neutral facial expression so I could change it to different ones at a later date.

      So i've got that trio of spiders from nolzur's.
       

       
      They do not come with sculpted bases - unlike most of the nolzur's line.  This isn't a huge issue, except that these suckers have a bunch of tiny spindly legs.  I am worried about getting a good hold.
       
      So I have a few questions:
       
      1: how to fasten these guys to a base?  Just glue the legs and hope, or pin them through the body like a flightstand?
      2: how to sculpt/or assemble, suitable bases to compliment their spindly nature and ensure a better hold.
      3: how to attach the spider in a way that I can paint underneath it OR should I find a way to glue it down after both parts are painted?
       
      So the webbed victim shown in the photo above I have decided to leave out as a piece of scatter.  There is a stone base (not pictured) that I have already glued to a reaper base for one of the spiders.  Each of the spiders has a slightly different pose with their legs - which is made worse by them being bent out of shape.  I'm hoping to use this as an advantage though, and pose each spider differently.  One is rearing back with front legs up (this one I plan to glue to the supplied rocky base with the abdomen glued to the ground for extra support.
       
      Another spider has one side of legs kind of bent under a bit.  I'm thinking this would look good mounted sideways, crawling up the side of a fallen log (not sure if I should try to sculpt this, or find a twig to glue to the base).
       
      The last spider is pretty neutral, but I was thinking of posing it climbing down something just for variety.
       
      Any advice about sculpting the bases vs gluing organic material or mounting something with narrow points of contact would be tremendously helpful.  My indecision has lead to two weeks of no painting.

      I struggled with this for a year but really learned a lot about blending and lighting by working on this.

      This is a bunch of minis in one. I was looking at my pygmy mammoth mini a couple of months ago and I just felt the need to dangle something from its tusks. I found some little bottles I had bought years ago from a Michaels or Joann and the rest of the ideas followed smoothly. I chopped some phosphorescent plastic from a little dino model you find in Fred Meyer and put those in the bottles and they do glow in the dark. I wasn't able to take a good photo of that, alas. I first saw the idea of a large pack animal with lanterns on it, traveling into an uncertain world, years ago when I saw this art: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/7638820 and fell in love with it.
       
      List of materials
      - Pygmy mammoth https://www.reapermini.com/search/mammoth/latest/44111
      - Shadoweyes Catfolk rogue https://www.reapermini.com/search/cat rogue/latest/44118
      - Adventuring accessories https://www.reapermini.com/search/02638
      - Adventuring accessories II https://www.reapermini.com/search/02963
      - green stuff (I used the silicone sculpting brushes and vaseline to get this level of detail)
      - little bottles from Michaels or Joann
      - phosphorescent plastic (I used the plastic support for the dino pieces from JARU, Inc. Dino World Glow Fossils - no dino pieces were harmed in the making of this mini)
       
      Here are more close up photos.
       




       
      And here is the making process.
       




       
      He even has a uvula :)
       

       
      I chopped off the platform and the swords from the rogue cat. And then I cut off its legs and tail so i could reposition them on top of the mammoth.
       

       
      And then I summoned the green stuff.
       





       
      It was really hard to detach the sacks from their metal anchor. I was basically chewing away at the metal with my pliers. But eventually they came off.
       





       
      Priming this was challenging.
       

       
      I sealed the base with a heavy layer of gloss sealer later on.
       


       
      Invoking more green stuff, this time for the cape, blanket edges and the harnesses.
       





       
      I used the cap on one of my new brushes to support the rolled up corner of the cape overnight otherwise it would have fallen flat. I smeared it with vaseline so it wouldn't stick and become a problem once the green stuff dried.
       

       
      Sculpted the edges of the blanket because just painting the dangly threads on the mammoth looked flat and most unsatisfactory.
       

       
      I think I'll name her Shen. And have her wreck havoc for my players in my D&D campaigns.
       





       
      I don't have photos for the harnesses because after staring at this mini for so long I got dizzy and had to lie down. And then I forgot to take pics and I finished the piece. The harnesses are just twisted long strips of green stuff. I measured the distance from the tusk to the hand and then made them and let them dry before attaching them.
       
      Hope you enjoyed this build :)

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      To complement my Ent I wanted to sculpt a small toad man. None of yhe available miniatures really fit the bill, so I started from  scratch. 
       

       
       

       
      After bulking out the body with greenstuff and milliput (to make it less bendy)  I made good progress with the skin texture. The combination of micro beads, poppy seeds and super glue applicator tube produced a really nice warty skin texture. 
       

       

       

       
      Next are the arms and legs. He will be a plain toad, only a hand weapon will be added inspired by Polynesian arms.
