This is the first Wood Elf I have ever painted, and besides a few Skeletons (which really don't count) this is my first model ever! Obviously its not that good, but I kinda like it. I'm going for a 'midnight ambush' colour scheme. I look forward to all the feedback/critiscm.
I also apologise for the poor quality pictures; never photographed a miniature before either

Nice for (ahem,) first model, why don't skellies count?

Well I got into the Undead when they were still the Undead... and I was a lot younger then, so painting was basically Spray White, Dip in Mud/red/brown wash... that was pretty much it.
The miniature is well done for a first painter, only the brown of the bow is too plain for me. If you ink it and also apply another shade of brown (e.g. onto the tips of the bow) it will look more impressive.

Thanky very much - I agree with you on the bow, in fact earlier today I tried drybrushing on a bit of a darker brown to add texture to it. I'm a bit annoyed, because I put a lot of effort into doing the face, but naturally you can't see it under the darkness of his hood; its a really fiddly job!
Looks good. I would suggest maybe some dark grays to highlight the cape so that it doesn't feel flat though. (Last unit I painted I cheated and just used the "Dip" method though)
