    The color choice for the gold is great. Just need some darker darks and brighter highlights to sell the metallic aspect.

    Agreed - the colours, especially those on the feathers, are great. The blends are smooth and the green is very vibrant. As trys says, just make the darks darker and the lights lighter and the gold will be kicking. It's already lovely blends, so the extra pop will really sell it.

    beautiful work, i agree witht he others, makeyour dark slightly darker, and add some spot highlights to really pop the NMM

    This is absolutely fantastic, the nmm gold is great but the overall model is really good. I struggle with nmm myself but it seems you have it almost mastered (I say almost as there is always room for improvement). Look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Nice job pulling the colors together between the first pic and the final. You muted them *just* enough to bring it all in harmony. Great fig.

    The skink is great, and the colours work well together. It's kinda let down by the base, though. The stone is as nice as the mini, but the grass looks scrappy and oddly amateurish compared to the pj, which is superb as I have said.
