Welcome to the forum. 

 

For a first paint job your figure looks excellent. Everything is painted as it should be. Your painting will develop as you practice. Learn to enjoy the process. 

 

Use a piece of white paper for a backdrop and your photos will come out better. The camera will be less confused about what to focus on and what colors to capture.

Looks great! You've got very good brush control for a first time.

 

Edit: And bonus points for painting a dino!

 

(I know, I know, technically not a dinosaur...)

@Pineapple thank you!

I bought five minis to give a go with, mostly medieval fantasy types, but I loved this one so much it had to be my first. Thinking of getting the rest of the dinosaur type minis when I'm done with the minis I have now.

Welcome to the Forum! Vaery good work on the mini. Okay, for the base, a simple way to make your bases look decent that is eay is as follows:

At your FLGS or a general hobby shop, get some Woodland Scenics foam "flocking" They make this stuff for scenery for model railroads in different coarseness and colors. Pick one you like, use cheap craft paint or white glue and coat the flat area around the feet of your mini and the top of the base. Then just stick the base into the foam while it is wet, shake the excess off and let it dry. Simple and effective, put the rest of the flocking in a little tub with a sealable top to store, it.

Welcome to the Forum!

 

Your first mini looks way better than my first.

Love the warpaint / marking on his face.

 

You have good brush control, keep painting, watch videos on youtube on the subject, browse this forum and ask questions.

Make a WIP ( Work in Progress) when painting you will get advice and comments on the go if you want.

 

HAVE FUN!

 @Corsair, thank you for the tips! I'll swing by my FLGS next time I get a chance and see what they have. I didn't realize that's what they all were called, thought it was just the name of our local shop haha.

 

@Glitterwolf thanks for the WIP tip. I took some pictures as I was going to see how it looked in each stage, didn't realize there was a forum section for that. Will check it out next time. It was fun painting, some was a little frustrating, but mostly it was nice just to relax and focus on that for a few hours and pick how I wanted it to look as it went on.

 

@Iridil my dad use to paint minis, so I bought some for him too. He's excited to do some with me, it's been at least twenty years since he last did so it must have stuck around with him like you said. He mostly did metal space guys.

 

@MusicalFeline, thank you!

      I haven't been painting much Reaper lately, but painted up this beastie for Jimmy The Brush's July community challenge.

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 
       

       

       

       
      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

       
      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

       
      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
