Monday Miniatures: Anirion

Work monopolized my weekend, so I got no painting done. Fortunately I started on Thursday, so I still have something to post. I hope that all you loyal readers have had a much more relaxing week than I.

I was having fun with this one – trying to paint linen. A little more time for blending, and I think it would have turned out pretty good. The eyes on this one were an especially large pain.

Antonia did a wonderful job with the Anirion, despite also being pressed for time. I love the mottled color scheme she chose.

Everyone else most have been just a shade busier than us, because that’s all that was submitted. Here’s to next week being more fruitful and relaxing for everyone.

Update:

Magnus submitted this lovely green and gold mage just after I went to sleep.

Kylie was also up until the wee hours to finish off that gorgeous freehand work on the robe.

  1. Sorry for the late submission; my camera’s memory card wasn’t being recognized by my computer, so I was delayed getting the pictures uploaded.

    Kudos to those who attempted a pattern on the robe. I thought about it, but I couldn’t come up with anything I thought would look good.

  2. I’m sorry too, for being late. Its not so much that I was up in the wee hours as I live in Australia so there is a huge gap in time zones.I have been running around trying to get ready for travelling overseas next week and not had a chance to upload photos on the computer.

    David – White Linen is hard and I think you did a really good job! I found the eyes really hard too, I blame the hood! I took me several attempts before I got to a “that will do” point.

    Antonia – I really love the look – it makes the robes look almost velvet-y. He really looks very rugged up, like it is cold.

    Magnus – I think you are the only one who embraced the “wood-elf” he is supposed to be and I think it worked really well. you did a really good job on the shading.

    Thanks for the complements on my robe, I need more practice on free-hand – particularly smaller details. Still I am very proud of this one 🙂

    • Thanks, Kylie! I try to stick with the “original theme” (i.e., the Reaper label) for each of the figures, unless I have a specific idea in mind (such as Malek-Skeletor). I’m not currently playing any RPGs or wargames, so I’m focused on building up a “miniature-bank” for future games. Bones are a great way to do that, as they cover a lot of different bases! 😉
