Jakob Janssen Monk WIP

Recommended Posts

Hi folks!


Today I started painting #03836 "Jakob Janssen, Monk" for our friend Jakob. Sending him some good vibes during this time and excited to finish this and ship it his way! I started with skintones and I'm currently working on painting him with a big ol' George Clooney smile ::D: 


I want to finalize my color scheme but I'm really struggling! Many great painters have already posted photos of their version of this mini and I want to do something different than what's already been done. Here are the three I'm considering:



HALP! The more options I research, the less decisive I get. Going to check back in tonight to see what folks think since I'll need to decide before my livestream tomorrow morning. At the end of the day, no matter what color scheme I choose, I'll do my absolute best to make sure it's something that will hopefully bring @JakobJanssen some creative joy :wub:  I'll check back in soon. Thanks in advance for your thoughts & suggestions!!

I'm not sure I'm qualified to give advice -those eyes already look better than any I've ever done! 


But the halfling monk does look really interesting from a colour point of view.

If it's not too late, might I propose a few other schemes?


Jann Lee from Dead or Alive 5, or Liu Kang from Mortal Kombat (no clue which sequel)

I like the traditional Shao Lin style.



But Liu Kang from Mortal Kombat is also an option.

Looking good! Might I ask what the Jakob Janssen thing is? 

Why is everyone painting the same miniature for him?

I gathered from comments that Reaper made the mini for him but I can't find any info anywhere about the how and the why :)

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a model that had been waiting 34 years before being painted, Ral Partha 02-333 Acrobatic Thief sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
      "Thanks to @Thoramel, for providing me with the model info.

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.

      Jakob asked me to paint one of his models for his collection, and this is what I came up with. I wanted to give him a tattoo, and I chose a Cherry Blossom Tree. I loved painting this model.

      Painting this guy up for ex's husband for their new campaign...
      Again, nothing much yet, but gotta keep track of colors....

      He's been sitting on the shelf of shame for a while, and the skin was done with GW Tanned flash, but I am going over that with SC 75 Arabic Shadow..
      eyes had been done at some point, so exact colors unknown...
      check back another time to see progress....
