Second mini (stay at home version 2020)

Recommended Posts

Looks good! I've been in the hobby for a few years now and I still curse at those stubborn left eyes- they just have to be difficult!

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!!

Excellent brush control.  The separate regions of the mini are all clean.  It's a great foundation to build upon with more shadows and highlights as others have mentioned.

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

Thanks for all the references, I got inspired and took another pass at some highlights!

Also gave the knight a go.  Tried to dirty him up a bit!  :)
