Superb, very nice work on the beard!

Beautiful crisp detail - and love the yellow/ochre robe - and the hair color reads very well as dirty blond turning grey

 

Thanks, a durty blond hair and beard is exactly what I was aiming for. I wanted it to be elegant but also dusty.

After all, it's been certainly a week since he descended into this dungeon with his fellow adventurers.

This is a splendid paint job. I agree with the others, but I enjoyed especially:

 

The subtle texture on the sleeping roll.

The effective OSL, simulating just a light shine from the glowing orb.

The light weathering on the red robe at the shoulder piece.

The deep contrast of the reds without going too far into orange or pink.

The finely executed freehand stars on the robe.

 

What I would suggest to make the miniature even better:

 

Slightly increase the contrast on the scroll and pouch or colour shift both to not be too close in colour to the robe. At the moment they get a bit lost.

Add some more interesting textures to the base. For instance moss between the stones, rubble and dust.

Thanks for your encouragement everyone and a special thanks for your comments and suggestion @Peithetairos, you are absolutely right. I hope to find some time to refine the points you mentioned. I think I can glaze over the scroll and pouch to alter their tone. I will post this model along with the other Dungeon Dwellers I recently painted in the forum annual contest and I had to finalize the diorama before the end of December. I took pictures of my diorama Yesterday and I will post them today. If my schedule allows me, I'll add more decorative elements to the diorama, correct some stuff and repost final pictures before the deadline.

 

Here's a group picture of my Dungeon Dwellers I took Yesterday.

      I am happy to present my entry to the 18th quarterly contest. I worked hard to achieve a nice contrast, using texture, complimentary colours and value. Another focus was the cavern base and the water and splash effects. I am happy how he turned out, but comparing him to the top four trolls I also know that I need to push myself even more. I guess that is what it is all about. 
       

       

       
      Given the metal version is NSFW I include some links that show him in his full glory.

      This was my entry for the quarterly contest. I decided to paint him as though he was in a cave with maybe some luminescent crystals or mushrooms. I love the sculpt and will probably eventually get another to paint "normally". Or maybe not since I have hundreds of other minis to paint!
