Mini of the Week 5-18-18

Welcome back to Mini of the Week, where every Friday I will find a miniature from around the web that exemplifies an aspect of our hobby and share it with you.

Constantin Valdor by Piotrek Czajka on Putty and Paint

When I first saw the Constantin Valdor model I thought it was a little too busy, but I think this paint job really makes it shine. The model already has so much going on, that by keeping the color scheme simpler it makes the mini easier to read. I really like the non-metallic gold used on him. It's very warm and the reflections ready realistically, but again the contrast and blends on it have been kept softer to make it more cohesive. By keeping all of the fur and feathers black it maintains the trio of colors of gold, black, and red. By using just these three colors it helps draw your attention to the face, which is the only area that stands out from the rest.

Everything is very smooth and crisp, with the face looking particularly good and realistic. I definitely think this is my favorite rendition of this model I've seen so far.

Be sure to check out more views of the model on Putty and Paint and show the artist some love if you like it.

Until next time,
