  1. So i've been having a very difficult few months, that has reduced my interaction on the forums even further than I've already been reduced... Namely, I've been dealing with health issues from reoccurring colds, to a un-diagnosed lump on my left hip I'm still trying to get identified and treated. My step-father is the biggest issue that I could really use some thoughts and prayers on. He had surgery months ago, and since then has been dealing with chronic pain. It hurts him to swallow, to drink/eat, to talk, to do anything. He's lost 70 pounds since January and barely eats anything, and he spends most of his day curled in his chair in pain, hardly moving or talking and it kills me to see him like this and knowing I can do nothing. He has a second opinion doctor that he won't be able to see until May, and I hate to think of what a month more of this is going to do to him in the meantime. On top of that, we're looking to move houses and so that added stress isn't helping me at all, namely due to there being so little available right now. And storm season is starting up, so tornadoes are going to be at threat for the next few months as well. I dunno, it helps to just vent things here a bit. But if you've been wondering where I've been, this is what I've been doing. Hardly done any drawing or painting. I need to finish my Spring exchange, then i'll probably stop participating in exchanges for a while until things look better for me.
  2. Siri could use thoughts/prayers

    It was a nice service. Very rainy day but he rain stopped long enough, though it was still muddy and cold. military funeral with a veterans motorcycle group called Patriot Guard escorting, and formal uniform airmen from the nearby air force base who did the flag folding and trumpet salute

    Thanks everyone. Pouring down rain outside, usual Oklahoma. What i I want to do is paint but can’t do that until I go back home on Monday. I have a box of dragons from Reaper coming so that should be fun

  12. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    Got him put together, gap-filled, and primed. Going to start painting him soon. He has a certain blue feline nemesis to defend against, can't be underdressed
  13. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    Actually he is a Cape buffalo =P so African plains, yellow savannah grass
  14. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    still nto sure about plants though. I worry about messing up my bust trying >.> or that htey might take away or distract from him
  15. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    i can do that, thanks
  16. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    thanks, i'm very pleased with how he's coming along i do wish i could get higher quality wood though, not sure waht to do about the lines in this one
  17. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    i'm not sure how to do the vegetation though. Just sticking wires and covering it in green stuff doesn't seem like it'd get the point across, but i'm nto sure what else to do. Paint vegetation on the 'wall' behind it?
  18. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    the reaper dragon bust was a breeze to pin to a plinth, but it had a nice flat surface and arranged vertically, not horizontally like these
  19. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    i didn't really want him to be on the side like a trophy, but i had no idea how to put him on top of a block. He is not made in a easy-to-mount way, with that perfectly flat back and no real place to drill to put a stand vertically i will try to add some bushes or something
  20. Cape Buffalo Bull Bust

    one of my husband's players does wood work, so he cut me a block i could mount the buffalo on the block's paint will be worked on, no worries
  21. Siri Sculpts an Orca

    added a sea turtle
  22. Siri Sculpts an Orca

    I love Orca. And i wanted to sculpt. So i'm going to Sculpt an Orca, and size it correctly for use with a game in case we ever need one. Now Orca are pretty big, looks like average size is 20-26 feet. The dorsal fin of a male will reach 6 feet on its own, the size of a mini all on its own since i dont' plan to cast this, i'll do a wire armature and then do a foil bulk, then do sculpey over that. Bake it, and do final details in green stuff. That's the plan, anyways...
  23. Siri Sculpts an Orca

    i'll take it to ReaperCon and see how it does in Open
  24. Siri Sculpts an Orca

    I think the solution to my chaotic moorish idol school is to make a few much more detailed ones at the front
  25. Siri Sculpts an Orca

    painted the cork coral, sculpted and painted coral, and sculpted and painted two schools of fish. The Moorish Idols in front need more work, not sure what to do but will try. Why'd i choose a pattern complex fish for the front school
