Flame just needs more contrast. rest is good. Since the orange in the eyes looks too bright anyways... no big deal ;)

You def have a good grasp of the basics and your flat colors are spot on. I have to second Goblin King on shading in some lowlights. I see some on the shirt of the Silver Cavalier, so keep up the good work.

and great first eyelashes on the Deeproot Wolf Rider.

Well now, here's something. Did you use an ink wash on the Claws of the Wyrm spawn point? It looks like you did, and it brings out so much detail on the mini. Ink is a great, easy way to bring in some lowlight shading.

and I love the little blood splatters on the Blackblade's knives.

My spanning point, it was a rapid one. Don't know what do do with it. The black is a wash.

For the bloody blade, it's a mix of black wash and red ink. First time that I try this mix, and I love the result.

Yes that blood is very effective. I might try that on my Grobbit Executioners!

I love these saddlebags. Could you please tell me how you made them?
I have never modified a miniature before but I don't like that the Wolfrider came without its roll and bags so I really want to make them and glue them on. Can you do some kind of small guide how you did them and what you used to made them?
Is this even something us mortals could do?

Lovestar this was easy to do, I have take the miniature and bring it to a friend, and 1 week after, the saddlebags was done. The only thing I have to do is to glue it. This was 4 separate part, 3 bag and the roll sleeping bag.

This done with Green Stuff. A two part epoxy, that you can sculpt the way you want. I not able to tell you how to do it, I have try, and none of my attempt was a success.

You know, looking at these, I can see that you're a good painter. Have you considered layering paints any? It would add a lot more depth to your paintjobs.

For instance, on the arena champion, you could use a lighter yellow to pick out the highlights in her hair, a lighter red for the highlights on her dress, and lighter brown on her gloves.

Any chance that your friend could do them again, this time for me and that I pay for the job and shipping. These are awesome and I would never be able to do some myself.

Very impressive to see the bulk of your work collected like this!
I'd say don't be afraid to experiment a bit more with adding shadows and highlights. I see you are doing a little, but these minis can take a lot.
You have to be really bad to ruin them, and I can see you paint very neat, so no worries here.

Look up some beginner's guides or just ask in here if you want to take the next step :)

What he said about the shading, your work is great. I think getting some ink washes and shading will really make your work pop

The old and the new, side by side

Finally, I have paint this spawn point.

Now the new explosive turtle.

Thanks for the comment.
I already put some highlight, but it does not show on my picture.
For the shadow, this is not something that I use often.
For the wash, it depend of the miniature.
I'm at a point, that I will need some teaching in person to go up a notch.

Pictures WILL **** up your paintjob. Everybody who's tried taking pictures of miniatures knows this... :lol:


That being said... I think it's a matter of getting higher contrast in your colors. You do some highlighting, but it's so very subtle. Don't be afraid to make the highlights EVEN brighter
The difference between Shadow - normal - highlight should be something a bit like the example below - generally speaking...



Looking at the T-Tower as an example. Let's start with the rocks. Simply mix a dark grey and paint in between all the cracks.
You could even mix in a little water (make a wash if you will) and let physics do the job of getting the paint neatly between the individual rocks.


Another contrast problem is where different colors/objects meet each other. The rocks and the skin is rather similar in saturation.
A trick to make the objects appear more distinct is to paint a dark outline at the edges where objects meet.
Dark brown at the very base of his claws. Dark green or brown where the skin meets rocks.
Again you could make a wash which will make it easy for the paint to go right where you want (the crevasses between two objects).
I'll recommend getting your hands on a can of GW Agrax Earthshade. It's an amazing wash that can literally be used for anything. It's especially good for making outlines.
It's a dark black-ish brown that mixes really well with almost any color.


I marked the places on the skin where I would add some highlights, but looking at the Saltpillar monsters it looks like you have a good understanding of where highlights need to go.


I hope you understand I'm not writing all this because I think you suck, but rather because I DON'T think you suck ;)
Btw I really like the brown shading you did on his skin. That looks really good. Using completely different colors for skin tones is a great technique to make it look much more alive.
