    The only thing I´d say is adding more contrast to the ripper skin by adding stronger shadows, maybe with a purple tint to them ;):)

    Ok, i followed your advice so here is ripper with darker skin:

    Do you think i should make even deeper shadows? I am pretty happy about the result now, but maybe, maybe I should..

    They look much better! As far as for shadowing, I think that´s enough, but I would´t deny outlining the muscles with an almost-black tone in the deepest recesses to add more definition ;).
    Though that´s personal taste, I´ve seen lots of painters who skip that step :) Great job!

    Thanks a lot for your comments :)
    Tournament werent very good. I was 10th? Only one game won, against another Lizardmen army. I wanted to paint Slann as my next miniature, but changes were in the roster, so slann is out. Time for another hero on ripperdactyl :D

    But now commissions. 3 juggernauts and skullcannon of khorne - I have 5 days to paint that for friend cause he is going to master class tournament on 20th of Nov :D
    Next 10 maneaters and 2 rhinox riders but on higher lvl.. so lot of work, but I will post some pictures so you can judge me :D

    Yay! :joyful::joyful:.
    One question: do you paint with airbrush?? Just because I just realized you were wearing gloves in the picture above :).

    Everything i do is made with brush :) however I want to buy an airbrush for commissions so it will speed up my work :)
    I am using gloves always when I work with resin or metal or with painted minitures.
    (In this case - tiqtaqto). Sometimes its easy to destroy what you have done with your hands and I want to avoid this :)

    I think its all about sweat on your hands. And gloves simply prevent sweat from getting onto the miniatures :)

    They look incredible! I don’t know what you charge for commissions but they are definitely getting their money worth! Brilliant work.
