I think your paint job on the crystals is superb!

I can't tell in these photographs if they are translucent or not…so excellent photos as well.

[edit: almost sure the orange one is…]

 

They look like walking crystals to me.

But that is all on the sculptor.

To convince me they are floating the chains need to be absolutely straight, as they would be if some force were pulling them away from the ground.

Yes, I imagine them bobbing up and down as the chains gently tug them back toward the earth!!! 
 

The crystals come translucent, I literally just inked them and then did an edging treatment. They’re for tabletop gaming, not a showpiece at a convention. :)

Your stone work is fantastic. What colors do you use?

Thank you!
 

I try to just randomly splash layers of browns, tans, green, green and red; I even add in layers of random other colors like purple. A lot of time I just splash whatever is leftover on my wet palette.

Love how you painted up our floating captured crystals!! and you are correct when I made them I pictured them bobbing up and down in a magical kind of dance :)

That’s awesome!

      This is the Hill Giant from 77939. I have not finished the cat yet, so I only have the Giant here. I have been trying to add various colors (layers of color for one area/color) to my minis to make them more interesting. Following some of the painters here and other utubers and painters like Angel G. I used an Imperial Purple base for this entire mini and then did Troll Flesh as next base for skin and then built up reddish skin tones for skin and then went lighter tan. Hope you enjoy, I had fun painting him.

      Worked on some critters. The leeches were painted Walnut Brown and highlighted in medium grey. Then I went over them with Turbo Dork - 3D Glasses. Then wash of Nuln Oil Glossy. Ended up with the slimy/glossy look I was trying for.
       

       

       
       

      Dire Crab, I was inspired by the color scheme that many have posted here, which i think they were modeling a Blue Crab which seems to be more green with many interesting colors in it. I painted the whole thing Ivory, and then glazed inks and washes up and tried to be careful on where I laid the wash/ink down. Some were just one coat, like Reikland Fleshshade for the edges of shell and claws. Also uded Army Painter green ink and Nuln Oil (for mix with green for darkest part on top of shell) for shell/legs/claws, Reaper Sepia wash for in-between colors and the underside. Only paint I used was bit of black at tips of claws, and Tropical blue watered down to thickish wash for blue on claws/legs.

      Just one more for now.  I recently received a kickstarter which had decal pages for books and scrips.  They were primarily for warhammer but the author made some changes during the kickstarter to make them more system neutral.  I got them and then went looking for a mini to try them on.  I found Lor Gorna first and this was the result.  I liked the mini and i also liked the color i got on his robes and cloak!
       
      And of course his purpose, the book, came out pretty well too!

      I know I haven't posted in a while, but I still check in daily on the friendliest mini-painting forum on the web!  Still lurking here while pursuing my obsession with OSL.
