I've been working on the Templar's shield yesterday.
Still lots to do, but I think it's going into the right direction.
At this point I'm really happy with the way the front of the shield is turning out. I'm not an expert on randomness. I find it tricky to do random stains and blemishes and avoid creating patterns. But I guess after adding some blood it should look good.
I know you can see all the little imperfections (not so little too;p), but please bare in mind, that these are some extreme close-ups. The shield is more or less 6,5 cm long, so most of the flaws will disappear, while looking at the miniature as a whole.
But if you have any ideas how I could improve the shield, please do not hesitate. All criticism and comments will be highly appreciated. I want this piece to be my best:)
