Let’s start by a little apology for my absence. It has been a hectic month at work and I am also working on an incredibly awesome commission (more about that later). Also, I am working on officially establishing myself as a commission painter, which I will also tell you more about in due time.
For now, let’s take a look back at February. I have to admit that I have not been paying enough attention this month, so the list is short. but there are definitely some really interesting things to check out!
The long battle by Juan Carlos Villoslada
So much atmosphere in this piece, it tells such a good story. I’m loving the tattoos and the small battle wounds. The NMM is amazing and incredibly well done. Beautiful piece!
Thorvin the Great by Antonio Peña
I really love the dramatic lighting on this piece, and the somewhat eerie green tones. Again stunning NMM (I think it is, might be real metallics though)
Pin-up preacher by Jen Haley
Oh la la! What a feminine piece, painting to perfection by Jen. She has an incredible talent, and very recognizable style, with her muted colours. Loving the purple tones and the soft skin.
Steadfast Tin Heart by Francesco “Franciuus” Farabi
I have no words for this awesomeness. There is so much creativity here and perfect painting. Just enjoy :).
Nymert by Robert Carlsson
Amazing piece! Great colour effects in the skin and the tail. I’m a big fan of the gold NMM on this piece as well!
Jessica Thunderhawke by Rodrigo Ciprés
Perfect paintjob on a perfect miniature. I really love the effcts on the leather and the fabrics look so lightweight. A real beauty 🙂

NMM Gold tutorial by The Hairy Painter
Great step by step on painting a cooler toned gold NMM. The results are very effective 🙂
Brave Tin Heart Freehand step by steps by Francesco Franciuus Farabi
What a great insight into how Francesco makes his amazing freehands. Very interesting how he starts with the freehand in black & white and then colours it in with glazes. The results are amazing and instantly recognizable as his work. Part 2 here.
Hope you liked my favourites. See you soon!
