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.

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!

      Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper.
       
      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I finally got around to doing some basing on my take on reaper's Gauth, in bones I do not know the SKU unfortunately, but I think it is from Bones 4? 
       
      Anyway, I tried to paint him up as a White dragon, but I also wanted to keep it interesting, so I highlighted from three different colours on separate parts of the hide, mostly pale purple, grey on the central spines down his back, and turquoise on the belly!
       
      Take a look, let me know what you think, c&c's more than welcome!
