In my experience, you don’t tend to get a lot of feedback constructively on this site. But, since you asked I will try to give some!
Firstly I think the plinth actually lets the model down. It is grainy, the lettering isn’t at the same quality as the rest of the model.
The eyes are well done but I think possibly you could have gone further with them.
The blue is really nice, the weathering and use of colour is great. The skin feels a tiny bit too orange to me, I would’ve used a bit more purple or green in the skin just to break it away from the blue. The leather effect is really well painted, but I think the biggest issue with the whole model is the contrast. All of the colours on the model start at the same dark value and increase to the same light value. There needs to be more contrast both between sections, and then also higher and more saturated on the areas that you want to draw focus to.
But truly this is a model to be proud of, well done.
Wow Trent, thank you so much for such fantastic feedback!! If I get at least one comment like this one on every miniature published, it will be totally worthy for sure!
Totally agree with the plinth thing. I always get super excited when getting close to the end of the painting process, and I use to rush… shame on me, as those small final steps are so important!!
And now, let’s move to your comment about colours, light and contrast, but first, again, thank you so much for such fantastic feedback, I do really appreciate it! First, although the orange tone of the skin was intended, to contrast with the blue, without any doubt it would have gain a lot with some more greenish or purplish shadows. Regarding the contrast in the miniature, I also agree with you, and that is something I really have to learn, as it is really difficult for me so far to create this light and saturation contrast gradients, and use them to create focal points. many things to keep in mind for the next one :)
All the best!!
