While I’m not a professional painter, it’s always a great feeling when friends trust me enough to commission me to paint their favorite characters. With each of these miniatures, I did my best to capture the essence of the character and bring them to life in miniature form.
It was a challenge to capture the iconic blue and red costume with smooth transitions between shades, but I am happy with the final result. I added some shading to the muscles and made the cape look like it was flowing in the wind. Overall, I think it’s a great representation of the classic superhero.
Harley Quinn, one of my personal favorite characters to paint. This miniature was based on her look from the Batman: Arkham Knight video game, with her signature red and black costume and particularly eerie smile. The challenge with Harley was getting all the details of her costume just right, from the diamonds on her leggings to the bells on her hat. It was a lot of work, but the end result was worth it.
Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku
Finally, I had the opportunity to paint Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku, a popular character from the Dragon Ball Super anime. This miniature was all about capturing Goku’s dynamic energy and power. With his spiky hair and intense expression, he was a lot of fun to paint. The challenge with Goku was getting all the details of his outfit just right and the color of his hair and eyes.
I also had the opportunity to paint a commission of Batman, who was depicted in a striking pose with one leg up on a wall. This was a fun miniature to work on, as I got to experiment with the different textures of the Batsuit, from the smooth leather of the gloves to the rugged texture of the chest plate. The pose also allowed me to play around with the lighting and shading, adding depth to the miniature. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I think it’s a great addition to any Batman fan’s collection.
While each of these miniatures presented their own challenges, I had a great time working on each of them. It’s always a pleasure to see a character come to life in miniature form, and I’m honored that my friends trust me enough to paint these characters for them.
At the end of the day, I’m not a professional painter, but I always do my best to bring out the best in each miniature that I work on. Whether it’s Superman, Harley Quinn, or Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku, I always put my heart and soul into each painting, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to do so.
