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.
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.
Oh Rats! – Let’s knock out another group of minor minis!
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.
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! 😉
