  1. [Morihalda] Quest Accepted: The D20 Rainbow Dragon

    I really like #5 as well, but I have no idea how you would get those hints of yellow from the paints you rolled. It sort of seems a shame that you don't have more colors, between the blue and grey being so similar and rolling black as your third color this is practically a monochrome piece.

    He looks like he's expecting someone to show up and scold him about stepping on the flowers! Nicely done!

    Okay, whomever got me started on reading the "Tale of Two Rulers" web comic, I don't know whether to thank you or curse you. Now I have to wait for weekly updates.

    Bath-bombs generally do that anyway unless they're pure white. I don't normally make bath bombs because my tub isn't big enough to have a comfortable bath in. Generally my soap doesn't make my tub nasty, but if you add something crazy like seaweed or charcoal to it then it totally could. (Thanks, Lush. <_<) Was going to paint this afternoon but somehow ended up doing a parent-teacher conference, going to the stupid book fair and teaching my little girls to make pie. Can't really complain about that last bit too much because I really like pie.

    I even know where to get bath and body safe glitter. Heck, I've already *got* some. I put it in clear soap and it looks very pretty. Because it's literally embedded in a surfactant I've never had a problem with it sticking.

    Many's the time a facepalm emoticon would be useful. My sympathies to everyone who has to spend their time fixing stuff. But it's true, people who do quality work really don't get rewarded the same way as people who do shoddy work. Better still, people who produce LOTS of shoddy work and are noticed for how much extra effort they're putting in.

    For anyone else looking, they don't show up on Threadless but if you go to the YouTube channel there are links there that will take you to the right stuff. And when I say "links", what I mean is text that you can copy and paste to get to the right stuff. I've been working on my paladin of Thor conversion every day this week and it just keeps not getting finished. Almost there, and I'm so ready to be done. I love Bones for conversions but I think I need to paint some metal if I'm going to properly practice the stuff I learned at ReaperCon. Would also help if I actually worked on the nativity I was going to paint for my mom.
  8. Almost done now! I really don't think I appreciated how much work this project was going to be. Easily this is taking at least three times longer than a standard PC, and I don't know that I've raised the bar on quality or anything. I think it's turned out pretty well, but I'm really ready to be done. Probably the next photos I take will be for Show Off. Now, would I take on a project like this again? Absolutely! The conversion portion wasn't actually that hard and I think I gained a lot of confidence from accomplishing it. I would, however, recommend not doing a fancy dapple coat on a horse unless you love it because it sucked up an awful lot of time and it's not really as good as it should be. If I'd done just a regular brown or white horse I think it would have helped the visual appeal as well as making it a lot easier to properly shade it. Since this piece is for my D&D character I had to go with the dapple grey and try to make it work. Here she is, in all her fully assembled glory! And here are the brass-etch leafy bits that will be going on the base: I'm hoping that the greenery will living things up a bit, it's looking awfully grey at the moment. I hear greenery is Pantone's color of the year, so at least it will be on trend. I can't link to the Pantone site due to commerce rules, but they've got some sample color combinations that you might find interesting and/or useful. Thanks for looking!
  9. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Many years before I was born, my Dad used to hitch-hike across Canada to get summer work so he could go to school in the winter. Once he wanted to get across the Peace River, and for reasons I don't remember he couldn't just go across the normal bridge. (This might have been before there was a normal bridge.) At the time he thought it seemed like a good idea to just walk across the pipeline bridge. Part of the way across he decided that maybe it wasn't such a good idea, but it was easier to go forward than turn around. Pics can be seen here: http://www.bridgemeister.com/pic.php?pid=68 I'm not sure whether telling us this was supposed to be a way of showing off how tough he was, or whether it was a cautionary tale about thinking things through. I think it accomplished both.

    Dangit! Lost my quotes due to a crappy phone. Am I the only one who thinks of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" when hearing about a broken Bundt?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPvO53JHnmY&app=desktop

    Maybe this is just something that makes sense to that generation. My 19 year old glanced at the pic you had (before you'd shared the official title) and his comment was, "looks like the original Ragnarok".

    She is a wonderful person, and I have met her! I even showed her a picture of one of my minis (ie. child #4 whom I've got an awesome reference pic of). But it's a lot of work and I know she's busy. I'll PM in a couple of days, honest! I was also wondering what was going to happen to our head of house position... Does it have to be a mod?

    Yeah, and it's not really the ideal indicator of fitness. I mean, my blood pressure is usually pretty darned low. Even with the new metric I don't have high blood pressure. I am still definitely overweight by more than a little and really need to address my fitness. But my blood pressure is FINE. Flip side, my dad's been on blood pressure meds for a long while. Now he's in his 80s and his doctor wanted to bring his blood pressure down a bit but increasing the meds made him dizzy. Elderly people are at high risk of injury and complication from falls, so WTF? What was high blood pressure doing to him that's worse than a man with osteoporosis and post polio syndrome getting dizzy and risking falls??
