I like it, it's a nice change, I can see what Pickle means though, he also looks rather tame compared to other shamen and beasties
im gonna say the same... he looks like some kind of native people with a bull or whatever mask on is face... nice work but ur gonna have to redo this one
Wow, now that's a little harsh! He still has hooves that you can clearly see, so is still inhuman. The mask may be to hide the fact he has tiny horns - An actual bray of a Bray Shaman wouldn't be half as respected.
At most I'd reccomend that a few bitz are added to perhaps a belt around his robe and adorning his staff, maybe his horns on the mask. Just to give it a more 'tribal' and wild look.
I still think it's a very nice model and depending on the rest of the army could blend in well or simply be an unusual character piece.
Not sure I'm seeing what others are seeing. I find the model to be quite pleasing to the eye and is painted fairly well. <shrugs> Kudos!
I'm not going to get into an argument about the figure, this is a painting forum after all.
Firstly I like what you've done with the cloak, some might say to add a wash to tie the colours togeather but I would reckon the contrast compliments the overall look.
I'm not so crazy about the freehand (Blue) though, aesthetically I find it a tone too pale but, more importantly, technically I think it's a bit too broad; if you were to paint over half of it with whatever bone colour you've used you'll get a much more defined look.
Up, up and away!
That's pretty much it. The idea is that he is a bray. Everyone in the herd knows it, but as soon as he developed magical abilities he went out and killed the biggest thing he could find, and wears its skull as a warning to others.Originally Posted by 8peopleThanks for the comments! For the cloak I was going for a look evoking silk or velvet, some status-evoking material that doesn't age well and that the shaman wouldn't know how to care for. I'm not sure that comes across exactly the way I wanted but I'm not quite sure how to improve it without redoing it.Originally Posted by Walex
As for the blue paint, I can see what you mean. I'll take another look at it before I seal it.
Thanks for the comments!

I like it. I could be human, but the hooves are a nice subtle detail that gives it away as a beast. Very nice model
