looking good!
I personally would apply a little more of the Olive dry brush in order to tone down the color of the earth stone colored stone and so to make the gray and brown colors more uniform...but that is just my personal taste....

another tip: you can also add some gray to your brown stone color if you feel the brown color is too brown and causing too much contrast....

be careful not to apply the final stone edge dry brush to wet! make sure the color is very dried out...and use it very sparingly, or your piece will start to look chalky...

I really appreciate you sharing your tiles, your painting, and your progress.

Thanks for the tips Stefan. I just finished the olive dry brush on all the walls, floors, stairs and doorways. I'm going to look over my tiles and see what I think. I think the idea of mixing a gray with the earth stone brown would have been a good idea, it stands out a bit more than I like.

I think I'm going to take a tile that I've done as it is, and feather just a little of the final stone dry brush on, and see how it looks all together. If it's not to my liking, I'll add a little more of the olive dry brush to them.

Stefan, perhaps you could post pictures of a tile at each step in the painting guide as well? It's hard to see in the video how dark or light you have the paint after each step. I think that would help us get a closer match.

Here are a couple shots of my first few finished pieces. I did some more playing around with the olive dry brush, but decided this was the look I wanted. I'm quite pleased with how it came out, and will continue on with my other pieces from here. Anyone who's read this far, it's worth me saying DRY YOUR BRUSH! It was very easy to get too much of the stone edge dry brush. Once you get it dry enough, though, I was able to paint a few pieces without needing more paint.

Thanks Stefan for all your help, and the great product. I'll do another update later when I've finished my main tile set, and perhaps another with my dungeon dressing pieces if people are interested. Painting these takes a lot of time, but is also a lot of fun!

I'm nearly done now. Just some doors to finish up, and the beds to finish (need to get some good colors for the blankets), and the pillars to finish (need to find my #12 brush - where is it?!)

Here's a shot of my walls & floors in their container, with some of the gold, doors and dungeon dressing pieces with them. I did do some mixing to find a better brown for the barrels & tables, and used a darker brown for the doors. Once I finish up the other doors, I'll set up a dungeon and see how it all looks now!

Impressive.
Can you say why the pieces in the most recent posted photo appear so different from the first pics?

Also, container? What are you using.

A fantastic pianist job. Thanks for posting.

Thanks!

The container is just a Hefty brand plastic storage container from Target... purchased because it will fit under our bed with the other containers I keep my Pathfinder materials in. Weird place to store it, I know.

Which pics are you comparing that look different to you? Obviously each painting step has gradually changed the look, but if you're talking my "finished pieces" it's probably lighting. I'm taking my pics with my cell phone's camera, and the lighting in our house isn't the best. The tiles themselves do actually look different depending on the room lighting, too. In brighter lighting the colors look pretty light, but in a darker room they have a nice gray look to them. Kind of interesting.

Also, I did touch up the colors on my tables, chairs & benches. For some I did a second coat of a mixed brown that I like better, for others I simply dry brushed some of the dungeon stone pokorny color over the original. Both looks came out pretty nice. I have a lot of color variation going on intentionally.

You answered mt question - thank you. For some reason I didn't realize the other pictures were of intermediate steps.
My bad. They do look great - you're a great painter in addition to your pianist skills. ;)

I'm finally "done" painting (with the exception of 3x demon doors and 2x locked doors... not sure how I want to paint those yet). No idea how many hours I've spent painting, but it's well over 20. Somewhere in the 30's, probably.

Here are some pictures of a dungeon I tossed together. This is not using all of my pieces. Can't wait to play now!

Twenty to thirty hours? Ouch. Looks fantastic, though.
