Great job!  Don't worry about making every mini perfect.  It's totally fine to call it good enough and move on to the next.  I think you learn more from painting a lot than you do from spending too much time on one.  I agree with everyone else that that skirt is the best part!

Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?! 

That ABSOLUTLEY counts. Heck, that's the most important part.

 

Very nice work on her. :winkthumbs:

      Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing.  In this case, I was just using it to test some colors.  
       
      Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun.  I figured this gross figure needed a green belly.  From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple.  Challenge accepted. 
       
      I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple.  Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots.  Still wanted more.   Made a light wash of that purple and filled in the sections and gaps in the chitin.  Worked well. 
       
      For a three color combo it sure does look weird, but also some how works.  I'm digging this color theory thing. 
       

       

       
      Here's the progress photos.

      This one took a lot more time than i planned.  2.5 nights of work.  The killer of it was all the layers with translucent paint.  Keeping them thin to not get streaking was difficult.   But i did it and it's done. 
       
      Proud moment for me is the eye.  
       
      Done!

      This one is taking me forever! 
       
      I'm at a standstill with doing this eyeball. I also can't tell if i need to change the weird yellow i did around the eye.  I'm also struggling with the pumpkin lights in the heads.
       
      Overall I'm struggling and need suggestions. 
       
      Here's where I'm at:

      I challenged myself to knocking one out in 40 minutes.  This was another pick from paint club, so I was wanting to get it done and get to another.  
       
      This little guy was fun to push with wet blending. It was hard for me to highlight only up to the pink, and man that stuff is a one coat and done!  Gotta really thin it out or it'll be cotton candy.   
       

       
      I ended up sticking to a 5 color rule.  My 5th color was the black brown on the nails.  It's not in the palette photo, but i did have some left on my palette from the orc chief earlier today.  
       
      I like the little belly and inner leg transition.  Wet blending for the win. 
       
      Really this would be more adorable than ominous.  Guess he'll just have to deal with the other gargoyles talking about him being the flamboyant one of the group.  "There goes Gorag again..."

      Still cooking with gas this week.  Got another painted. 
      I still need to finish the back of his staff, paint his shoes, and base him, but major parts are done. 
       

       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Nothing major learned this time.  Still getting my balance of colors and layering carefully.
       
      Wins:
      * green skin was fun and came out strong.  May need to go a wee bit lighter on the highlights. 
      * fur and skin on reverse side of cape was fun.  Tried to give it a tanned look. I think it may have come out a bit jaundice colored...oh well. Still like it. 
      *  wood grain on staff could be improved, but happy with it. 
      *  very carefully did the skulls.  Took about 5 or 6 passes at them, but they came out nicely shaded and subtle.  
      *  thank goodness i didn't have to do eyes.  His brow did the work for me. 
       
      Misses:
      * red color on the skull staff...meh.
      *  speaking of skull staff i went too far when i painted red and covered the jaw bone of the skull.  Whoops. Painted on.   Who'd notice if i didn't tell you?  Oh,wait.  Dang it.
      *  forgot to go back and highlight and contrast the teeth more. 
       
      I need a good base for this dude.  He came out strong.  I mean, not physically because he's an orc, i mean the paint job.  
       
      Got suggestions? 
       
      Here's the painting process.
