    • yeah.. i keep losing half days.. I think I'll just do this one last thing and then there are 7 more things I want to do..
    • The sketching is nearly complete!   Worked a lot over the weekend, because I'm really excited to start laying in the color. Drybrushing white on the tiny neck scales made it much easier to work on them. I'm going to hit the brightest spots with some titanium white tonight.   One side has much higher value than the other. The lower value side will get a cooler mix of colors, as the main light source is coming nearly horizontally to the high value side.   Now I'm trying to plan out the colors I want to use. From the beginning I've wanted the main scales of the robo-lizard to be red, so I'm thinking about a red, purple, and blue palette, but I'm not set on that, yet. I've got a plan for the cape, which will be white and blue, but there will be some special techniques involved to make it striking.    
    • Awesome!   I love how you played with the light and dark. Her colours are amazing.   Nice spider too..
    • This one has been sitting on my desk begging to be finished for awhile now.  After taking the pics I fiddled with the face and changed the color of the stained wood to a walnut which I like better.  I'll try to get a photo of that up at some point.  I had a wip on this with all my colors and process but the evil empire of photobucket ate the pictures.     I used some of the bright skin triad and for the shadow colors corporeal shade.  The basework is made from the firm sculpey (the gray type,) a stick and etched brass foliage.  The spider shield and barrel are from reaper's bones line.  The crystal I did with a few real ones and then just made the rest out of sculpey.  I had fun with the idea of someone emerging from shadow so painted the back with the shadow colors and then blended the front to back which gave me a very nice green I used also on the foliage.  I made that using a combo of chestnut brown, corporeal shade and linen white.   Enjoy!  C&C welcome and feel free to ask any questions!  I can try to dig up some of the old photos, but having lost my hard drive, it may take time to find the right SD card.   Also, I have clearly been playing too much Skyrim...
    •   Yes I have seen her, she looks like she's from the right period. It's just the working outfit, I would like to see something I can paint as a polka dot dress or something like that. She does has potential though.
