    November/December WIP

    Took a break after finishing Ysera and Durotan until I sunk back into anxiety and depression oblivion, got a bit sick and sat down to finish painting this old project of Monique Dr Noir. i need to find some minis for a diorama I have in mind and will make a new thread on that one. Just didnt want to make a new thread on Monique de Noir because I'm slow and procrastinate or have color ADD. Currently having a green phase but its starting to turn orange so I wanted to finish Monique De Noir before it got to that. I added her shield and started blocking out the colors. Saving her hair for last as painting hair is pretty much my weakest point right now. I'm having a love/hate relationship with nmm as the blending back and forth isnt exactly a science for me. CC always welcome. And yes, thats another dragon bust in the background. Was in the mood to paint it up but then wasnt @_@ so it rests there for now. Ultimate goal is to either do my ice dragon idea or nightmare Ysera which calls for reds and blues. Im feeling more autumn oranges, browns and reds at the moment though. As evidence by a poor defenseless bust I slapped some paint on.

    First time to reaper con!

    Welcome to Thunder Dome!! Uh...I mean, hello. We dont bite much, hope that's okay. Least not too hard. Its because we care really. Don't be shy to just walk up to a table of painter and say Hi or grab a seat and chat. We're all here because we love to paint or sculpt or cosplay or secretly stalk our favorite teacher. It varies, ive done a couple of these once.....or twice. Honestly, Dilvish's response is far more insightful.

    Durotan Bust

    Thanks! I hadn't used a red base for a skin tones it was an interesting process. By the time I got to judy painting plain red for his wraps it wasn't quite as intimidating. Ive a new love for Clear Red though asthat made it easier. Thanks! I am pretty proud of it. I always paint and paint something for months at a time until I hate it, then love it again and it never quite turns out how I want it. So I stopped after working 3 seperate weekend on it. Spent a day doing touch ups and called it done. Its a speed paint in procrastinating Melons time. :) Three sets of weekends and a Saturday for final touch ups.

    Ysera Dragon Bust

    I definitely wish I could have pulled off an aquarelle paint job! Would be interesting to try! I originally aimed for it to look more ethereal but that would have been tough to pull off! The Mr wants me to use his spare dragon bust to pain,y her nightmare version. Hes also determined to have me paint a lot of red this year.

    Durotan Bust

    Thanks! His eyes were super tiny but I'm glad they came out looking okay! Its been a crazy two months for eyes it seems. :)

    Ysera Dragon Bust

    The eyes are intended to be a bit unsettling and other worldly. Ysera is based on World of Warcraft Ysera that is known as the Dreamer. Her eyes are typically supposed to glow blue but I wanted to try something new with her eyes. Her full form: I'd call her done until I practice sculpting her jewelry! The eyes I struggled with a lot because I wanted to do something different but still have her recognisable as Ysera. I may brighten or darken the contrast a bit more but ultimately, no other design changes would be applied. I'm glad you all like her though! I'm definitely in love with this bust!

    Still working on this one as I needed to look away from green for awhile after working on Ysera. I went ahead and started doing touch ups and added the arm. I'm not too happy with the base but am really just concerned with the paint job right now. Im starting to feel more confident painting nmm and taking a picture definitely helped too! I'm able to ask, does this light make sense? No..no it doesn't. Does it look cool? Ehhhh I guess so. You should probably fix that. Yeah, okay.

    Durotan Bust

    I consider this as a speed paint as I 'finished' it in about 6 days. Not incredibly proud of it but not bad either as it takes me months to finish anything that I am ever happy with. This one was really more for fun and I had fun painting him. Goal accomplished!

    Ysera Dragon Bust

    This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither. I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

    Reaper Kolinsky

    I actually just bought 3 Reaper Kolinsky's at Reaper con and they're still holding up perfectly. I rather like them. Maybe that was a bad batch?

    Did some more work today and started working on weathering the belt on the pirate but it has been awhile. I started with shading here and blocking out thr colors: So I pushed this up further and its going quite well. Started blending the metallic effect here and its slooooooowwwlllyyyy coming together. Super slowly. Sadly slowly. Omg so slowly.
