Witch doctor

It's is the school holidays here in New Zealand so hopefully I will get some more figures painted. I've recently finished some more islanders plus my heroine. I tried some lighting effects on the doctor which I think turned out pretty good.  I had my two year old climbing over me as I painted these so I stopped there but I have the rest of my islanders half finished.  Here are some pics.

I like the model but he is looking down to
much for my liking. It's hard to see the
detail on his face from above.
Will use this little fellow as some sort
of objective.

I don't think the photo does her justice. Once I have
all my figures finished I will have to borrow a
nice camera and set up some good lighting.

Islander test figure

Here is the first miniature from I have painted for some time. While I'm pretty happy with the skin tone, the rest of it needs a little bit of work. I mixed the colours for the accessories from my wife's fine art paint supply! I think I will splash out on some new paints. This will make the process a whole lot easier. Also, after seeing the mini up close in the photograph I can see that my brush skills need some work. What I am pleased with are the eyes. I painted them first which helped and I didn't even use my smallest brush. Look out for more islanders to come.
