hi everyone i'm back
so i decided to paint my first librarian, this is my first attempt at a robe/cloakand a detailed skull, i would really like comments and critiques if at all possible i'm really pushing myself with this miniature trying to really make it something better than i have ever done before, i am also going to be attempting my first shot at blending on this miniature as well, some tips on that would be appreciated as well. please don't hold back i take everythign with a grain of salt and try to look for a way to improve from everythign anyone suggests.
there are two versions of each pic one with a flash and one without, they suprisingly enough show things a little differently and thought it might be useful :-)
thanks everyone for helping me improve heavily as a painter i really appreciate it.
Looks great. My only comment is I think the areas of your highest highlight/whitest white are too large. I'd let more of the intermediate tones show and only put the bright pure white on a smaller area down the ridges of the folds, as edge highlights on the skull, etc.
Is that a better photo?
I think it's good. Like IA says, more intermediate bits would help it (the brown on the top of the crotch is a bit too much), and maybe consider a couple of light washes while you are at it.
keep it up and keep sharing.
Do you have a photo of the whole model?
PS. that is the non-flash photo 'cleaned' with MS Office Picture Manager and only takes a second. just ask if you need details.

i have a couple pics that i will post up in a day or so i am going to get my wisdom teeth cut out today so i may or may not feel up to it for a little bit :-)
and as a side note the greenish-brown areas will be based as copper for the final gold highlights.
Looks pretty good.
Regarding others' comments about the white on the highest areas - that's good, but keep in mind that if you apply a tiny stripe of white at the very ridge, it may suggest a shiny/leathery material. I'm not sure if I explained it properly, but basically don't let the white on the very ridges stand out too much, cause it'll make the robe look like it's leather. Looks like you need to tone down your white more and re-apply it in narrower areas, but not too narrow.
