The fact that you're already painting eyes at this point shows you got the talent.

I sometimes cheat, use a small wooden toothpick and use it to apply a dot to the eye.

 

Orc looks fine.

If you want to take it to the next level use more highlights and shadows.

For example that fur loincloth would look even better with a darker wash/shadows and some drybrushing with a lighter tone.

But it's definitely a good looking Orc and it would look great on any gametable.

Good work, the model's looking great. I agree with Glitterwolf, some highlights and shadows would be an excellent progression and make your miniatures stand out more. The skin would lend itself well to trying it, with slabs of muscle clearly defined. Look forward to seeing more of your models!!

Can you guys recommend a good link to a shadow/highlight tutorial?

      Another one bites the dust….😆
       
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 


       
      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?! 
       
      She's painted with a mix of Reaper MSP and Vallejo Game Color. I haven't done so yet, but I think I'd like to start chronicling the colors I use for each future mini.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.
