Strong work!  I like your bold jewel-tone palette with the juxtaposition of smooth areas with textured areas.

The shine on the crystal is especially convincing.

 

Right, to make something on a mini seem to be glowing, it needs to be lighter and brighter than the things around it that aren't glowing. 

And here her brow naturally casts a shadow from an overhead light on her eye, so whatever color your paint in her eye will look darker unless you shine a forward-facing or upward-facing light when you take the photo.  On your next mini with glowing eyes, you could go darker with the painted shadows in the eye socket, use a darker-than-normal color for the sclera, and use a near-white (with just a hint/glaze of the color) for the iris.

 

Thanks for sharing,

Derek

      A very fun model to paint.  It’s full of expression and has a dynamic pose.  Highly recommended!

      Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?! 
       
      She's painted with a mix of Reaper MSP and Vallejo Game Color. I haven't done so yet, but I think I'd like to start chronicling the colors I use for each future mini.

      I tried to spend a bit more time on the Bones USA minis of the month. More time on highlights, and more painted shading (rather than just washes). I tried a Yennefer theme for Lysette, due to choices I made in Witcher 3. Just need to buy a unicorn...
