We've got a monthly painting contest at the local gaming store, of which the only requirement is that we use Reaper minis for it. So, I painted up their "Reaper Death" model, as seen here: Reaper Miniatures :: Miniatures
Anyway, I could use some C&C on the finished product. Most of it was an experiment in wet-blending, although the bones were a bit on the lazy side. (Layering + Devlan Mud washing.)
I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures. Photography isn't one of my strong suits. (Then again, neither is painting, so... )
Anyway, any thoughts, tips, outright criticisms, or threats would be greatly appreciated.
Ok, now before you think my tips are criticism, the paint job is awesome, fantastic and youve done a great job. But i am just giving some advice to help your chances ( i dont know how good the painters are in your area) so heres my advise
Ok, i can tell you spent an excrutiating amount of time on the flesh and robes, and they look great, but have a subtle look and are easy to pass off. you need a part of the model with hand drawn patterns or heavy detail to show off how good of a painter you are. Maybe a gothic pattern around the bottom of the robe, or blood splatters ( look up pictures of blood splatter for a convincing look, i know, sounds unpleasant) . Just SOMETHING to break up the large areas of negative space, whatever it is, make it detail hand painting and something that compliments the black and browns of the model
I agree with Dawn. He makes some good points.
And I would like to see a few more highlights on the bone. Looks a bit too brown at the moment.
You do a great job feathering and blending your grays. If you add some blue washes to the robes and spend some more time with the bones (I hate painting bones), you'll see good results.
Have you heard of Reaper Con? I just finished a Reaper mini...a ghost by Julie Guthrie.
