Welcome to Librarium Online!
Haha, I love the "Boom Headshot".
They are not badly painted. Badly painted is when it looks like the models was painted with a toothbrush or something.
Your models just look like they are "WIP". Just add som highlights and om the clothes and armor and some shade on the face and they will look much better. Trust me.
Some parts didn't look painted at all. :wacko:
How long have you been painting by the way?

I would say that you are using too much paint on the brush. And also, water down the paint as you use it. You will have to give the models more coats, but they will be better.
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
Zenarion is right, what you need to improve is thinner paints.
If your paint is thick it will
a) go only where your paintbrush goes
b) cover details
c) fill recesses
d) look textured
if you water it down it will do none of the above. Have a try and see what some water in your paints can do for your painting. An artist once told me, on a different subject (watercolour painting) but still, let the water do the painting, use the brush only todirect the paint that is within the water... or something similar.
Seriouserly it's great, there is so much that water can do for you while painting,
surface-tension will let you paint areas without risking the nearby areas and it will let you paint the thinnest of recessions with little or no effort.
You should use your models, nice conversions by the way, as a basis and keep working on them.
Ahaaa! I told him that would look ace. I finally managed to convince him after much labour.Haha, I love the "Boom Headshot".
You're suffering the same problem Robizzle is. You both seem to be using the paint straight from the pot. It's too thick and makes highlighting difficult.
Use a palette. This can simply be a flat plastic lid from an ice-cream or takeaway container. Use your brush to mix different colours or to thin your paint down by adding a little water.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Brown ink the crap out of them, that should smooth the color transition.
Add a few more "!!!"s, and then a few "1"s at the end of the Boom Headshot, and it'll be perfect.
