Default WIP widowmaker (warmachine)

this is sorta a test mini, to see how fast i can bang miniatures out. trying to raise a bit of money for a trip to the UK i'm taking. i'm playing around a lot more with washes in order to speed things up

so wadda people think? (btw, i've already re-worked the bandolier, in case someone decides to point out it looks like shit). i'm also thinking the red could do with another highlight...more pics either tonight or tomorrow



++EDIT++ btw, if my painting isn't as smooth or clear as it should be, lemme know with the progressive shots. its something i'll have to clear up...i'm trying to cut my smoking right back. and i'm getting kinda jittery because of it...2 days, 2 cigarettes leaves me kinda twitchy, so my hands aren't as steady as they should be

well, apparently there's either nothing to say about this, or people just plain don't like it...either that or they're ignoring it

but anyways, i'll keep soldiering ahead: stage 2



pretty close to complete now. just gotta get the detailing done now, a little gold, flesh and fur, a small amount of wood plus some lenses and touching up then i'm done

Don't worry about people not replying bloodied fangs.
It looks very good to me so far and I look forward to seeing the finished product.

I really like the fabric. I rely too much on elaborately sculpted models and exaggerated folds and ripples to give me lots of raised bits and recesses on cloaks, but you've given this one depth despite the relatively flat surface. Nice one.

thanks, folks

and the reason i like comments is more so that if anybody notices anything blaringly shocking, or anything they think i can improve, they can point it out . its more a matter of perfectring the mini, than comments for the sake of comments

and don't worry, the shakes left me about halfway through the gun, so most of the NMM was actually done with a steady hand

Only glaringly obvious things I see are what'll probably get done in the cleanup at the end:

The gun has brown painted onto it next to the hand.

The feet have red painted on them.

It's looking pretty good so far if all you are using is base colours and washes. If you could bang one of those out in about 2-3 hours I'd be impressed.
