    Thank you all for the comments. I was a bit hesitant to start that freehand, having been some many years since I have used a traditional paintbrush for 2d art. Looking forward to doing more of it.
    I've been bouncing around my WIPs as usual for me. Going to stick with Vulkan for now, but there are some projects I just can't wait to share, all in good time. Back to Vulkan. I was unsure about the green armor before beginning, but I got over it. Pretty happy with the direction things are going.

    Looking good, that green will contrast nicely with that orange background

    The little guy is a call idea. You should have them doing father and son stuff like flying a kite or something

    Darthmarsh, that is a great idea! I was only showing them both for scale, I hadn't considered using them together.
    If you have looked through my posts, you may notice that i bounce around quite a bit with my projects. A good portion of the time that is because I am working on something I care about and run into "how do I do this?" That will prompt me to start something I "care less" about in order to work out my stumbling block. Case in point here. I have a cool mini that I want do OSL on. My past attempts: not so good. So I had this Sister on deck and the other project is Sisters, so I decided to find a base that would allow for OSL. This also allowed me to gain more confidence with NMM gold trim. Anyway, here she is after three and half to four hours of work.

    Still refining the above sister(that you all liked soooo much,LOL), no pics though. I have so many irons in the fire ATM. A Wallhalla display almost finished, a Hulk Chevy emblem for my buddys truck. some barbarians, and others getting close but receiving no attention. All that aside Conrad Curze here has been demanding that I turn the bushes towards him.
    C&C always sought!

    Like you stated in my WIP - many things "almost" done. Take the hottest iron and get it through :-)

    Great work on the Sister, the glow effect works very well.
    It breaks down a bit in the transition on the cloth, where the glow fades into the red - what I would suggest is to make that transition darker than both the glowy bit below and the red cloth above.
    Sounds counter-intuitive, because you'd think the red of the cloth above should be even darker, but that tends to work on the stuff where I've tried this.

    I like the metal on Conrad! Those are some great transitions and sharp reflections!

    Thanks for the responses. You are absolutely correct Chris, that is exactly what I had done before reading your response.
    Finally added to my personal gallery of completed projects. Wait, what? Did Joe actually finish something? Yep, bound to happen sooner or later. Here's the link. I should replace the pic with a multi-pose shot, for now though, I'm happy just to put it in the gallery.Name:  P2210026 crp rsz.jpg

    Nice OSL on the sister, it really give some character to the figure.

    And nice start on the NMM.

    That does look good, the transition works! Congrats on finishing something
    Looking forward to the gold NMM!

    The Sister looks great and I really like the OSL. I’ve not seen the Gold NMM tutorial but iMd be interested in a link if you have one?
