Thank @KruleBear, I'm glad you like it. I thought of adding different colors to the skin after I painted everything in pink. It was too monotone, so I decided to add a few different colors. I then blended the blue and green color with the pink and highlighted with pink. The final highlight is a mix of pink and tusk ivory.

Looks great!  I can only imagine the patience it must have taken to paint all those eye.  I have a hard enough time when something only has the usual two!

Thanks for your comments everyone. @Rignes I understand your point, eyes can be hard to paint. I’m not sure it has anything to do with patience, it's more about concentration, brush control and practice. I think painting is very relaxing and stress relieving. When I sit at the painting table, it takes a few minutes and my mood changes. It makes me happy to paint. I guess that’s what happens whenever someone is passionate about what he is doing.

For me it depends on the model.  Some times I just want to get it done so I can play the game.  Then there are others that I just want to paint for the fun of it.  Those are the ones that I can get "in the zone" and it becomes almost a Zen like experience.  It's a nice balance to the frantic pace of the day to be able and sit and just laser focus on something sometimes.

I agree, we all have our favorite types of models. I prefer to paint monsters and undead. I rarely step out my confort zone and paint a "character" type of model.

OMG that's so gross!  I hope you left one eye unpainted!

I'm glad you like it. No eye have been left unturned. I mean, no stone have been left unpainted... :poke:

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Hi All,
      I haven't posted in a good while, so I thought Id share a pair of pieces that are special to me - Giant Leeches! This was my contribution to bones 4, and it is always a gratifying (and edifying) experience to paint a mini I have sculpted. Despite the special spot in my collection, I didn't go crazy with the paint jobs. It is a pretty basic palate and only took me a day or two to complete. As sculpts, the goal was to make easy to paint minis that filled a gap in the lineup and hit the table pretty often - I think these achieved that. The anatomy was based on observations of several leech species, combined to make it suitably monstrous. Similarly, the green and orange color scheme was based on real critters.
