    Hi all! I am freshly back from ReaperCon now, and (though many of you will see another version of this post with more convention-specific comments on Facebook later today) I wanted to finally share pictures of my competition entry this year with my forum family directly! I was super honored to win the Gold Sophie Trophy in the Painters category this year, and I have many people to thank for that, not the least of which is my wonderful wife for letting me put in so many late nights of painting gearing up for the convention! I also had a super fun time teaching classes, spending too much money on new minis, and just in general hanging out with all of you! But, anyway, on to the mini herself! Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you all like her!

    This is the beholder from Wizkids. He is my first completed mini for Saturated Seotember where I am going to try and spend some time painting every day for the month of September. I have a WIP thread going if anyone wants to follow along or join in! He got a little more orange than I intended but I don't mind how he turned out. I want to get my hands on another one and greenstuff his eye to make a different (round) iris and pupil. Fun mini to paint. We'll have to see how my players like him!

    @Guildensternwas my assigned recipient for the Summer paint exchange. She likes CAV and 40k and all these things I don't know anything about! I thought @robinh had made a mistake in his assignments until I saw that she likes mouseling! Ok, mouselings are something I like to paint. I went to my stash of mouselings. Yes, I have a stash of mouselings. Doesn't everyone? I hadn't ever painted the prince snd princess before so decided I would paint them. I have no idea where the idea to turn a toilet paper roll and Tropicana lids into a tower came from but there it was, the idea for Ratpunzel was born. It was fun to make, paint, and put all the flowers on. So, without further ado.... Ratpunzel! Ratpunzel! Let down your tail!

    Sigh. I'm calling her done because I'm out of time, but to be honest, I'm still not happy with her. I could work on her for years and not be happy, just because the theme is so close to my heart and I want to do her justice. I may work on her a bit while I'm at Reapercon if I get a chance. There's some blending that needs love and the hair ornaments need some darker shadows. But at least she's, er, mostly done! Yeah! Whoooo! I get to check her off my Habitica list where she's been lingering for 6 months... This is the original bust: It's a nice cheap plaster piece made by a company called owfeel I got on amazon for less than $20. It's huge compared to most minis but good practice if you want to work with eyes and facial features. And here's what I did with it: Here's a close-up of the front and back: I sculpted most of the bits, but the fox is darksword's, the cat from Reaper's cat lady collection, and the bat from the bones familiar pack. One sneaky trick I worked in is red shadow in the face and hair. I love using complements to shade a color. It adds so much depth. I also did a good deal of glazing on the chest to blend in the freehand. Leaving it drawn on would make it look more added, rather than part of the whole or sunk into the skin like I wanted. She was a challenge to blend because of her size. Thus the super sneaky trick of covering her with freehand to avoid large areas of smooth blending. I think I hate blending now. I need a break from blending. Her colors are red shadow, walnut brown, peacock green, viper green, fair skin, sun yellow and linen white. I can't remember what red I used to make the pink but I think it was fire red. Please feel free to ask any questions! She'll be coming with me to reapercon for closer inspection! Thanks, and see everyone soooooooon!

    Picked this lady up after My GlaveWraiths. Love this sculpt A lot of fun to paint if a but finicky to build. Wasn't sure how the dress and Vail but I think it works as old linen rather well. Hope everyone enjoys it.

    For my ReaperCon entry this year, I painted my Iron Cobra and a chest that I sculpted for one of the Bones KS's. I'm not entirely happy with these pictures, as the blue seems to be diminished in them (the background and steel colors are actually light blue; maybe it is my monitor?). I may adjust them later and re-post, but for now, they're pretty close (as close as I can get when photographing metallic paint). Oh, and I placed a Gold Medal with this in the Open Category.

    This Bones Lizardman with Spear was a gift from @Paradoxical Mouseduring a candy exchange where he and a few others guarded the candy. After an expirement in pink of which we shall never speak again, @malefactus gave me some advice and I went for a red with orange and yellow. The spear is still bendy, I don't mind the end of it, since that's a crooked branch, but the tip is a bit floppy as well. Anyway. Here is the latest warrior of my Lost World Project. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=132

    This past week I decided to paint the Kristianna figure from the Bones 2 "Heroes I" set. I had recently seem someone post online somewhere (was it here?) some figures they had done with the clear weapons from Bones 3 weapon sprues; where they had painted parts of the clear piece, and left others see-through; and I had decided I wanted to try something similar with this figure. I'm really happy with the results. For the full conversion and painting article, please see my blog: Kristianna Conversion

    This is the large resin version of this model I had the privilege to paint. She is 11.5" Tall and 9" wide. I guess there was a limited print in the early 2000's. A friend managed to find one in his closet so I painted it up.

    Had a great time painting this sculpt and learned that I really enjoy shading tummies, lol. The Ogre guard is my favorite, love his expression.

    A desert oracle, he's a fortune teller. He dwells in the desert at an oasis, and people travel the blistering sands to reach him and hear their future, bringing gold and treasure offerings to pay for it now whether he actually CAN tell the future is uncertain, but no one dares call him a fake. if the predicted future doesn't come as promised, he has a ready excuse: 'well, you see, the future has many options. I just chose the most likely one. But every action you do can change that, and you must have done something to put you off the most probable path onto one of the less likely ones' it's all so potentially true, and yet potentially a lie WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77471-kyphrixis-wip/

    I've had a lot of fun this august painting a bunch of miniatures. The first of them is that gorgeous sculpt from Darksword miniatures. Their figures have that old school fantasy look that it's really enjoyable, and a pleasure to paint. I love the character Medea, from Greek Mythology: my first idea was to copy the Medea on "Medea and Jason" from Pre-Raphaelite artist John William Waterhouse: but then I realized I've been using a red palette too much lately, so I changed to an orange-yellow one I've been wanting to try since I painted Ariel's wings. Since I've also abandoned the freehand arabesque I planned to paint and gived her a tan, the resemblance to what had to be is near to zero right now... Ultimately I'm happy with it, although I may have overhighlighted it. P.S. Thanks to the photo I realize now I painted her strabic....
