    Sometimes, you've just gotta paint yourself a fierce rainbow unicorn. Nothing else will quite do.

    Adding some simple rust effects (ryza rust and typhus corrosion) hard to get a pic of it though.

    I got to go tour one of the American beaches when my ship made a port visit nearby. Our tour guide told us that the tide conditions on that particular day were very similar to what they were back then. I walked out as far as I could without getting my feet wet and turned around and looked back inland. It was a few hundred yards, but it must have seemed like a thousand miles to those men back then. I've read a lot about it, and seen the movies, but it was a very sobering experience to actually be there.

    Ok so now everything is basecoated shaded and assembled, next is touch up highlights and weathering and I did notice a couple of sea stars on the coral I did not pick out so I need to go back to those. A very fun little project indeed

    A little backstory: At PaizoCon, there's a fella named Cosmo who runs a TTRPG survival game, where you have to last at least 20 minutes against...killer clowns. Yes, that's right, you get mobbed from all sides by wave after wave of malevolent, monstorous clowns of all kinds. @Reaperbryan paints at least one clown mini for him every year. And if it wasn't originally a clown, he MAKES it a clown. Last year, he and a few forum members (myself included) painted up a whole nightmarish Ronald McDonald clown crew. It was glorious and terrifying and a whole lot of fun. But this year, Cosmo had a special request: he'd gotten Hecklemeyer and Styx, and asked Bryan if he could paint them up. Being a good management type, he delegated the job to me, since he was already working on turning a giant into a rubber chicken-wielding clown (which came out amazingly). I had originally planned on purple and gold, with perhaps some red or green accents. Instead, purple and teal happened. It's almost as though it was inevitable. (pardon my fingers in the picture; it was the only way my camera would show the correct colors. Since I was at the con, I didn't have access to my normal photo-taking setup) Here's a shot that shows the puppet hanging off of his belt. I gave it a clown nose too, of course. Group picture! Cosmo was a very happy Cosmo when I gave them back. He did, in fact, squee loudly (followed by maniacal giggling). It was extremely gratifying. EDIT: I should clarify that when I say Speed Paint, I mean that I painted it in 3-4 hours, not during an actual speed paint event. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Fully dry fitted, glued when necessary. No more moving parts established so far. I love having a crane with two degrees of freedom though. Had to cut down the breach plug on the door to make it swing freely. Turned out good though. Edit: added an alternate view plus some delicious nikka whisky

    Mind. Blown. So in "Wonder Woman", the movie, Diana's aunt, Queen Hippolyta's sister, is the bad-backside warrior Antiope ... ... played by the same actor who played Buttercup, the Princess Bride.

    This is the figure that I sent out for the Spring Exchange. Tracking says it was delivered 5/25, but I haven't heard anything back, so hopefully nothing terrible happened to it. Anyway, my recipient wanted something colourful that could fit in the world of Alice in Wonderland, so I went for a female Mad Hatter sort of look. Sorry for the potato quality pictures as usual. The base gave me a really hard time. The first 2 things that I tried to make it with didn't work out, my original plan had been to have 2 teacups stacked, but I couldn't get the construction to work out, water effect pour went to hell, realized afterward that I should've done more to the sugar cubes and inside of the teacup rim before pouring the water effect and I re-painted the teacup twice and am still not happy with it. The teacup is made from the top of a GW paint pot...one side is thicker than the other, which I really should have shaved down more, but I nearly chopped off my thumb and gave up. I filled it in with greenstuff, which is also what the handle is made out of - I managed to pop the handle off twice, so that was fun. Overall I'm pretty happy with how she turned out, just not the base so much. Anyway, C&C are always welcome!

    So, not having painted for a year or so, I was happy to have an excuse with the arrival of Bones 3 to get back into it. After a brief warm-up/practice run on a female cleric-figure, I had a go at Goremaw, whom I decided to do as a fiendish purple worm (purple hues, tinged with red). I love the sculpt and am decently satisfied with how it came out.

    Thanks reaper peeps A really nice guest came down and I ended up having a nice conversation with her. So, night improved. I'm hungry though. I'm going to have to stop at Hubby's work for some pre-bed breakfast foods. And bacon.

    Whaaaaat?! You mean we're not supposed to have wet feet all the time?! I I recently got a pair of squishy jelly shoes. They aren't sparkly or pink like the ones I had when I was a little girl, but they're amazingly comfortable. If I lived in a year round warm climate I would keep those as my only pair of shoes. (And who cares if they're blue and don't match everything I own. They're squishy and comfy!)

    Making some progress... I added a few layers to the green dragon head. Then washed, then layered some more! I've decided to take the necks to a pretty firm transition, then either blend them in later, or airbrush the 'fade' to the red of the body. I'm still on the fence with that one. We'll see what happens when I finish all four heads.

    I'm moddin up my sledgehammer to have as much flexibility as I can reasonably achieve. So far, I've put the crane on a magnet so it can pivot. I've hinged the breach door. I've put the forward winches on with careful gluing they can spin, and I may add a little guitar string that can spool on and off. I'm trying to think of other silly things I can do to make this more poseable, without too much sculpting. Any suggestions? Also, I kinda wonder if I'm the first person to have a hinged breach door on the sledge.

    I was so excited about my success with Bloodlord that I decided to push myself a bit and do Rusty's eyes before heading off to bed. This is 2:1:1:1 Clear Green : P3 Green ink : Metal medium : Brush on sealer: Woot! I seem to have found the magic formula! Absolutely zero messing around with other paints or fiddling with inks. Again, Adamantium black pupil (I need to remember to add actual shine dots to all of these eyes): Rusty AWAKENS! (the reflection of the lamp light kind of hides the pupil in the last picture there, but I promise I put one in). Aaaaand now I need to take myself off to bed, since I should have done that almost 2 hours ago. 2 heads remain! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I recommend an emergency dose of Bacon, with a side of Pizza. (There's no place for a bug to hide on either of those comestibles.)

    Last night I made falafel. I ate them with hummus, tahini, cucumber, and tomato in a whole grain pita. Today, I have been... musical. Now I know why vegetarians and vegans frequently complain of being gassy. It tasted good though, and I have plans to make more in the near future. Possibly with a homemade tzatziki this time. I also made some quick pickles with the leftover cucumber, and they're interesting. I had planned on making them with mild rice vinegar, but I didn't realize I was out of it so I made them with white wine vinegar instead. I think that I will make them again in the future. I will also try to find certain other vegetables to make quick pickles out of for future endeavors. But I'll probably have to find an Asian market, since the one I used to go to closed down. There's another one in town that I've never been to, but I've heard bad things about them so I really don't want to go there if I don't have to.

    So I started painting Dark Souls the boardgame as fast as I can.The miniatures are a lot more fun to paint then Shadows of Brimstone, the detail is nice. I just have a feeling that once Bones 3 arrives I will put whatever is left on a shelf and forget about it... never getting painted. So I started my engines and am putting my painting time at the moment in Dark Souls models! I am painting the miniatures in the actual colorscheme from the game. The bases are just 'themed' around Dark Souls, desolate, kinda ... dead. Oh and I am taking pictures with one light up so there are some shadows, it is Dark Souls afterall. Here are the 3 Silver Knights and the 3 Silver Knight Greatbowmen. Next up the 4 player characters! We already played a game and intend to run more. We want to run through the Dark Souls 1 'campaign' which means my paint order will be: 4 PCs, 3 Hollow Soldiers, 3 Hollow Crossbowmen, 3 Large Hollows, the Gargoyle, 2 Sentinels, the Titanite Demon and finally Ornstein & Smough. The other (mini-)bosses don't appear in that 'campaign', so they are up after all of this is done! Critique welcome. :) They are tabletop quality, I want them done, but I want them to look nifty.

    It's been a long day. Did some painting, honeymoon planning, some housework, and lurking. Hope everyone is doing well.
