    Hey guys,

    I have started a Salute entry, so figured I should get a WIP log up, maybe someone would be kind enough to share some feedback.

    Not much done as yet, took me ages to settle on a concept, but now I'm going with Adept Nemo from PP:




    So far I've only started on the head and he needs more highlights on the hair and obviously the glasses aren't done..



    Scale shot on a cork:



    I'd love any feedback, but understand I might need to actually do a bit more painting before I'm at a stage where you can give it!

    I love the door! how are you going to get a brush in that crack in the floor though?

    The head looks like the paint is a bit thick, then again that could be the photo though.

      Thanks SD, not exactly sure how the brush is gonna get down there, black magic and pixies I suppose

      Made some progress, but got a lot more to do, a little disapointed with the casting in places/ my inability to fix it.

      Sorry for the slightly yellow photos, I've got to get a daylight lamp! The background fades to white.

        I worked a bit more on the metallics today, highlighting them, still need to shade them a bit more. Also tried to fix the cloth a bit. Tried to give it a little bit of texture in the highlights.






        After taking these pictures I dropped the mini, and being metal it put a nice big chip in the top [sad] [sad] [sad]



        At least the photos look better in natural light!

          Shaping up nicely :)

          Ever figure out which pixies to hire? I might suggest just doing a general layer of some color down there, washing it then perhaps trying the new GW drybrushes?

              Thanks guys, desperatly trying to get this finished for Saturday, but got a lot on this week.. Started some freehand, which I'm rubbish at so am fairly pleased with how it's going so far, though it needs some tidying up still, base is nearly complete now.

              I've worked out why the paint look too thick as well.. in a stupid moment I thought it was a good idea to use liquid greenstuff literally *everywhere* to try and level the surface finish a bit. Chump move, I've realised now I just made the paint look too thick!

                  The paintjob on the base really brought it to life.

                      Base really set off a strong colour scheme, nice work.

                          Right, I've basically been mucking about with lots of little bits and finishing nothing since Salute. This week however I've started a timed 'speed' paint on another forum. The mini we're painting is a Chaos Sorcerer, which I made a small change to have his right arm holding something.



                          I say 'speed' paint because it's not going to be particularly quick, but it is due to be finished this week, this is 6 hours of progress.

                              Thanks dude, I'm done on this now, certainly not my best mini, but ok for 10 hours, more a 'sighter' to get me painting again..





                              Gonna try and post more on here so to that end here's where I am with a High elf mage:




                              The grey is going better than the Chaos Warrior I tried it on last month, but still some work to do here to improve smoothness.
