whoo! I'm almost done. I will finish this by tomorrow!
Here are the little mini troll vignettes
One of my favorite books as a child was the Velveteen Rabbit, so had to put the toy in.
I've also been working on the fire and the cauldron. I think the stew looks sort of bubbly. I used the water effect, then painted it and added more water effect.
And sort of a final plan prior to finishing touches:

yup- he's made of sculpey. Don't worry- Nienna will save him!

I once painted a miniature with a similar freehand pattern on the cloak. I emailed Derek Schubert for help, and he sent me some closeup shots of his Lem, Halfling Bard.
When he saw my WIP, he told me to add smaller doodles in between the larger ones. Smaller, thinner, little tiny ones that fill in the gaps. Then wash over it all with the cloak color. This was the result:
So, I offer you the same suggestion that Derek gave me, since you seem to be doing a similar thing with Nienna's cloak.
I love the basing/scenery, BTW.
Hey was wondering if you, or anyone else for that matter, happen to have some links to tutorials on how to do these sort of patterns. Im mostly interested in how to make them look that sort of faded look like above, rather than in your face standing out.

hmmn. I did a search and this popped up. The only thing I'd suggest for making them seem faded is to use less vibrant/marked color changes. Or, as MamaGeek suggests, glaze over top of any pattern with your main color to soften the transition.
