    Thanks, Scott and Darklord.

    Darklord, the sculpt is perhaps a little soft in some places... but you're right, the initial photos make it look worse. The figure is right up near the painting...

    I know what you mean, it looks more black than purple. But I can promise there's no black paint used in the skin, it's just the combination of dark purple and dark green that make it look that way.

    Thanks!

    Darklord, the flesh is a mix of Badger Minitaire's Dark Green (basically like any dark green) and Reaper's Burgundy Wine (a dark purple). I started with roughly 2 parts dark green to 1...

    Thanks, Scott and Darklord.

    Yeah, I'm used to working from dark to light, so it's almost always shadows first and then highlights. I'm experimenting with switching that around when I paint black,...

    Very nice. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the figure.

    Oh, and if you do add some water effect waves to the base, would you mind sharing how you went about it?

    Thanks! Yes, most of what I use are Reaper paints (at least the matte colors, for metallics I use Scale75). However, in this instance, the Dark Green is from Badger's Minitaire line. But the rest...

    I really like the face on the 1/35 dwarf. You've got some very nice shading and contrast. One thing you can try on that one and on the ravenguard face is to add a bit of color through glazing. I'd...
