    After two months of work, he is done! I give you ... Narthrax the White. If that's not enough for you, there are a hundred and forty eight more pictures in the WIP thread, documenting his development in excruciating detail. On a side note, as I made the final adjustments and took the photos, I finished watching the climactic episode of Critical Role. And it was awesome.

    Pix? Well I removed the lace, added more feathers. Debating if I should add more feathers or maybe a tiny patent medicine bottle.

    I'm making a steampunk themed fascinator for my top-hat. FTFY Myself, of course. I'm no longer allowed to glue things on to random people.

    This is the recovery piece from Narthrax. After the excruciatingly long process of building the base and painting that huge model, I wanted something short, sweet, and simple. This figure, which I acquired as part of the Freeport Kickstarter, fit the bill nicely. The hardest part was attaching his arms, after which I did a base coat (Jungle Camo for the upper half, Blond Hair the the belly), a couple of washes, and some minimal highlighting. The base -- which is from Micro Arts Studio -- I had already painted earlier, back when I was working on Nyrissa. So all I had to do on that part was attach him.

    ^this is what I read at first. ^...also what I read at first. I even went to bed at a reasonable hour last night.

    Because Victorian's women's hats weren't... um... subtle. I probably will stop for now, and make a different one with some very over the top feathers another day. Then again, my Steampunk persona is a very -eccentric- woman, a Crypto-Botanist. I need to make a fascinator with blue roses some day... and another with eldritch looking plants... maybe based off Venus Flytraps...

    I used to be really bad at meeting new people, or people I already knew for that matter. Basically people were exhausting and strange. Combination of being a massive introvert and having social anxiety. Turns out that the real me doesn't have much social anxiety after all and is a definite extrovert (in situations where I'm not terribly worried about being attacked or shunned or whatever, anyway). It's still rather confusing for people who thought they knew me for the past 10-15 years. Good morning all! I decided to give up on catching up. Again. Now I'm going to go dig out some minotaurs, then get to work. Sadly, working doesn't mean painting... I have to put in extra time each weekend to offset the extra days I take off to go visit my girlfriend. Not much fun to work almost every weekend, but going to visit her is super fun, so...

    "I don't give a damn" is a shortening/corruption of the phrase "I don't give even a tinkers dam". With a tinkers dam being a mold made for casting metal for a quick repair made by scratching the shape to be cast in the dirt. The mold being ignored, stepped on, or kicked out of the way once used.

    It turned out ok......didn't spend allot of time on it. Think I could do better in the future if I pick another one up.

    I thought and evil wizard was involved because I read it as “Llama Bears”...

    I haven't posted in a couple of days because I was fighting (and losing) against the pink head. Teal is not a good shade colour for pink, FYI. So now here's where it stands: And maybe someone might find seeing what my palette looks like after all that useful.

    I think it's the bimodal distribution of has foxes and does not have foxes.

    Well, yes, but ... You know what? I suspect the phrase got changed way late. Like, “I don’t give a fig” dates to maybe 1400 and means I don’t care even a tiny worthless thing worth of caring. ”I don’t give a damn” dates to about 1700 and makes no sense at all. What if, at some point, someone swapped in the classic cussword for “fig”in the old phrase to spice it up a bit? It makes no more sense than “I don’t give a damn” but carries more emotional wallop. And people got used to it. Even though it makes no sense. And now people are putting in a euphemism again, the recent “fox.” Edit: BTW, I am in no way arguing against the neologism. It’s fascinating to see the way people play with language as it evolves.

    Went through the box and selected my items: Grenadier - Dwarven Flamethrower Halfling Militia - Chicken Riders (I missed out on the kickstarter. Score.) Reaper Miniatures - Morty Reaper Miniatures - Malena the Sorceress (I gifted mine away. Now I have one again. ^.^ ) Confrontation - Door Tales of War - Gladiator A variety of loose figures (The tilted Flumppppph! Oops, I have it straightened in this picture) I could not locate the following in the notebook to cross off: 1) Fighter in two pieces 2) Lady with clapping hair (Japan commercial for clapping hair reference: Youtube Link) 3) Bird-Head guard 4) Corpse Traveling Monk (Apologies for the photos, I don't have a place for miniature photography). Arc did a wonderful job with the base sculpting. Great job on the painting to all those applied paint. If anyone notices a place to touch up on the figure, let me know.

    Oh, it’s gorgeous! From what I have seen, people wore their most over-the-top hats for formal portraits and showed them in fashion illustrations, but when you look at photos of street scenes in normal daily life women’s hats really are more subdued, especially in the 1880s. This one would fit in just fine.

    I like my method better, it involves axes and skullz! Which brings me to my next point, do you wanna borrow my axe?

    After painting the dragon for the Paint Your Dragon Contest, I needed a "palette cleanser" before starting on the Jedi children minis for my grandkids' Christmas ornaments. They are even tinier than the dwarf so it was good for me to practice on a little mini again. Her eyes, especially her right one gave me fits. Other than that eye, I am pretty happy with her and she is just for play anyway. I tried to really push my highlights on her. I think I am usually too conservative. This time, I may have overdone it but I like her and she was for practice so she'll stay this way most likely. I did a wash on her hair but it really knocked the highlights down so I re=highlighted. Also, I realize once I saw the photos, she has a tiny bit of flock stuck to the front of her. I have tweezed that off but did not retake the photos as it didn't make that big of difference. Any C&C is appreciated.

    Depends on the location of the fox and whether or not you are soliciting the opinion of a chicken. GEM

    Mmm... Frying some rice. Oily fried rice. With lots of egg and onions and veggies.

    I have a folding table that I put on my bed on the occasion that I don't feel like getting out of bed but still want to paint. It works quite well actually. Hope she's safe! In other news: Well off to paint, make a WIP, and maybe have a nap. ETA: WIP made.
