@ja33, glad I could help! And thank s for your encouraging words, I appreciate it. I understand that going for an alternate color scheme can be risky, it's just kind of annoying because this is the second time where it seems I didn't get votes simply for doing something different. Again I'm not trying to bash other people's work, they did very well, I'm just being competitive. I put a lot of effort into my work, and it's just disappointing when I don't get the results I expected. Ah well, I guess there's always next time :)

@Ring_of_Gyges, thank you for sharing your thought. I see your point about the gold, I had a similar thought while I was painting it but I actually like how it looks. I'll keep that in mind next time though. As for the gem, it most certainly is unrealistic, but that's the beauty of this hobby. You have the freedom to paint whatever you want regardless of whether it's realistic or not. If I was going for realism I would've left the gem off. But because it was a competition I decided to go for something that would showcase more skill, and enhance the overall look.
Anyway, thanks again for sharing, it was helpful.

-PoW

I Really like the blue and yellow actually. Jewels are hit or miss sometimes due to that reality kick, but it is well done.

Thanks Sithious, glad you like it. :)
Here is an update on my entry for this month's challenge. I'm keeping the color scheme pretty standard because I want them to fit with the rest of my army, but there are a few surprises. I generally try to avoid showing pictures too soon before the end of the comp because I think you loose some of the wow factor, but I'm curious to know what y'all think of the freehand pattern
Image

And just for fun, here is a drawing I just recently finished. It's a character from an anime called One Piece. I'm not sure exactly how long it took to finish this, I just know it took a while, but I had a lot of fun doing it.

Thanks for looking!

Really nice blending on the red cloak, shows how much you've improved.

Thanks! Glad you guys like the drawing, it was a ton of fun.

Apparently Forgeworld knew it was my birthday last week. My family bought me one of the new trolls (the one with the club) for my birthday, and it arrived two days ago. The only problem was that it was the wrong troll! I promptly emailed customer service to see if I could get it replaced, and they replied saying that they are sending me the correct troll, and I get to keep the one they sent me! I'm so excited! Now I wish I didn't spend all that time trying to decide which one to get lol. Thanks Forgeworld!
Just curious, has this happened to anyone else? I did a quick google search, and it seems to have happened to a few people, but doesn't seem to happen often.

P.S. 800th post :D

My entry for this month. I had to rush a good bit to get it done, but I'm happy with it. I'm not really expecting to win this month, there are some crazy entries. Right now I'm just happy that I made some progress towards finishing my Easterling army, only got a handful left!

I'm not super happy with the red on the captain, it turned out a little paler than the red on the banner bearer, which is more of what I was going for with the captain. It's also got a little shine to it which made taking pictures of it a pain.
I would like to mention that I realize not everyone is a fan of gems, I just find them enjoyable to paint, and personally like how they look. So you can expect to see more of them from me in the future :)

Crisp painting and very nice work all around. That's some fine detail work on the captain's shield boss.

The purple gems go great with the red and gold colors.

May I ask how you shaded the red cloaks? Did you use washes?

Thanks to both of you! @Feanorthenoldor, I'm actually haveing a hard time remembering if I used any washes or not. It's all kind of a blur now. I know I've used Aggrax Earthshade and Leviathan Purple to shade on past Easterlings, but I don't think I did this time. Basically I started with Scorched Brown as a base coat and started mixing in red, leaving the brown in the darkest bits. If I did use any washes, it was more for smoothing out the blending than actual shading.
Sorry I can't remember for sure, but I hope that answers your question.

I asked because I was curious if you ever used glazes for shading? It's a process that requires a lot of patient, but the result leads to a nice gradual looking shade.

I will sometimes use them, usually it's to smooth out my blending if it's looking rough, or to add more color. So I guess I don't use them specifically for shading. I may start utilizing it some more in the future though, it does give very nice looking results. I just don't always have the patience for it though :)

They look excellent, nice rich/deep colours.

I always reckoned we should have seen more of the Easterlings in the LotR films - they look tough and sinister.

Agreed, their design was done really well.
School's been getting busy lately so I haven't had much hobby time lately. I've been busy assembling my trolls when I can, but I need to get some green stuff before I can start painting them. So while I wait for that I've started work on my fell beast finally. I only just started it, but I'm finding out that it's really difficult to handle while you're trying to paint it.
Image

I hope i can get some more painting done this week, but we shall just have to wait and see I guess.

I know what you mean.
I have painted mine few weeks ago and must say it was pretty challenging - especially with wings.

Haha, me too. I've started painting a section of one of the wings, only to find out I have no idea what I'm doing. I wanted to do something like this
http://www.coolminiornot.com/95386
But since those are Balrog wings, it's nearly impossible to copy it. So right now I'm messing around with it. Here's what I have so far.
Image
It's not a good picture, but you can kind of see where I'm going with it. The glossy bit is some wash that's still drying. Kind of a boring update, but that's all I got for now. I'll try and get some more done this week now that school's over.

I've assembled both trolls! I apologize for the terrible picture, but it just had to get a group shot (and a size comparison)
Image

I'll take a better one when they're both painted.
In other news, the fell beast is coming along nicely. My goal is to have it done sometime this week. If it don't y'all can feel free to yell at me :-D
