    Hello all

    Just signed up for the forums, although I've been reading the various threads infrequently for a few years. Given my current project, I thought it might be worth posting up some pictures.

    So here's my Skink (Star?)Priest. He's very much work in progress, as I've only really spent time on his feathers and gold ornaments, an only then on his headpiece. Nonetheless I need some feedback on his gold bits. This is my 2nd attempt a non-metallic metal, so I would appreciate any thoughts on it so I can work it into the rest of the model.

    The body and the staff, just for reference:

    Once again, any feedback welcome.

    Thanks for reading

    Great work! This is awesome! Didn't realize that it's nmm on the head at first... so I guess you performed well on this as well as on the feathers...

    Hello

    Been working on the wee fellow a bit more, starting to tidy up the gold and move onto other things. I'm still pretty ropey with NMM, especially the theory, but practice seems to be paying off: the dangly bits on the staff I was able to smash out in about 30 mins, and are probably some of the best looking gold parts. I also tried some freehand scale textures using @neveroddoreven's guide, which was interesting. They could do with a bit more definition, but I don't want to ruin the work I've already put in.

    Various bits still have to be addressed, mostly little gubbins such as the cords and staff handle and inlay, but they should be a quick fix. I'm a bit annoyed with the photo, as the colour balance is off (I had to use a slight filter to counteract how dark it got), so for the next WIP shots I'm stealing obtaining a decent camera instead of my phones.

    I'm going to return to the scales and try to give them some more definition with some decisive highlighting: at the moment they're looking pretty flat.

    Thanks for reading

    Amazing work! He looks exceptionally decrepit, like a right and proper old skink priest about to cast a spell. Well done!

    Very nice mini. Your NMM is great. You should paint a white line on the edges
