Well, actually I didn't paint anything.  But surely someone must have?

I painted for the first time ever in May! I can see how this could get addictive!  Smiley

I know that the fig on the left is Hot Wax from the Foundry Street Violence line--but I have no idea what the other two figures were. They just looked interesting, and they were in my pile of lead and were pre-primed. So I went for it.

Those look damn good for your first-ever painting!

Certainly I wouldn't be willing to dig up my very first figures and put closeups like that on the web!  Smiley

Try experimenting with highlights and painting shadows in, and/or with inks or washes to add a bit of depth to your painting. The greatcoat (cloak?) the guy in the middle of your trio is wearing would look even better with a bit of shading and depth in the folds of his coat/cloak.

@ Remington
the cow is amazing! colour and pattern ... You matched the african "cow-feeling" quite well!

@ Wirelizard
are You able to get some washes? or, what kinds of silver-metallics do You have?

The metallic shoulder pads look like they could need the same treatment as the green clothes, some highlights. So, use some e.g. boltgun (a dark silver) as a "basecoat" (not primer, which I think was white?), than use mithril-silver as a highlight.

Thanks for the tips guys--I'll be implementing your suggestions in June I hope! I know it was kind of risky to throw my first attempts up--but I did want to get some pointers--so that worked out perfectly.

I'd also like to say what an amazing cow that is! And the dragon is fantastic too! As always, the paint work on these boards is an inspiration!
