    he'll ideally be my demo dragon for my class, showing out of the box color design, how to do black, dark shaded limbs, light shaded limbs, horizontal color gradient (Tail tip to tail base) and vertical color gradient (spine to belly), how to do white (tail tip), etc

    Reaper Ron has been working with me all afternoon and finally got it to work for me. Turns out i never MADE an account...you don't have to make one to order reapercon tickets. I still had issues after that, and it ends up there was a bug with the class i wanted and they managed to fix it.

    if it's something relatively unimpotant i use a set of 3 different passwords, and i would have set one for this but none of them are working =/ and usually i let my browswer remember but i don't think it ever came up with the option usually password reset emails are instant, i don't understand why that's not working -.- and it's not like i can use another email, becuase THIS email is the one that the reapercon tickets are tied to and are required to have to buy classes i mean seriously how hard is it to send a password reset email? Isn't that usually automatic? It's not in my junk folder, not in my inbox. I hate having to take the bones conversion classes later in the convention because they're just scraps of already cut apart miniatures and all the fun things are already taken >.< the only class i want is the thursday conversion class when the bones are still nice and uncut and all the fun ones aren't taken already

    i use my art program. I put the picture of the model on a top layer with a 'gel' setting (which means underlying color shows thorugh), and then i color on a bottom layer

    I'm tempted to use the Ruined Temple as a very elaborate base for a diorama. Put a dragon in there or something

    and we can also do both. I don't see why we have to do one or the other. It helps to vent our disappointment to each other as well, and it'll help me compose a more calm email to Reaper when i can vent my real feelings here. I'm flat chested. I don't take it personally that 98% of female miniatures out there are huge busted and that is the only 'sexy' way to be female in this gaming world. I don't care about that. I don't care that according to the standards set by everything in the media and gaming and everywhere else, 'i'm not 'sexy' what i DO care about is that 98% of those female miniatures out there are so horribly armored in spandex-armor that wouldn't do anything to protect them but shows maximum boobs, or in armor plates that have boob shaped bumps hammered into them for maximum boob exposure. I hate that. I really do. It makes 0 sense, it's only there so that they're 'sexy' i just liked that FOR ONCE a miniature broke the mold of what is normal and sexy. They had armor. I don't care what size the boobs underneath were. They had actual ARMOR. For battle. Real armor that covered them like armor would. Not spandex-armor that contoured to their bodies unrealistically, not boob shaped breastplate to show off as much as possible they had real armor, they looked like real actual warriors, and i liked it. That is what people had been asking for. And then Reaper does a 180, removes the armor, to show maximum boob and gives them contour spandex armor. The very thing i despise in female miniatures but have to deal with anyways because no one wants to make a real woman warrior apparently, and if i want to paint or use a female miniature i have to use what is standard, aka large and unarmored boobs on an otherwise armored female warrior it just sucks that they decided to go so far away from what they had shown us, from what people had asked for. I'm not trying to personaly attack you. I could take every big busted woman miniature as a personal attack against my figure, but i don't. I care about the fact they took something that was different, that was unique and new, that was often requested by fans...and turned it into more of the same that 98% of the genre already is.

    i'm not saying large breasts doesn't make a fierce warrior. There are many miniatures with large breasts AND appropriate armor to make them look like a warrior i'm saying large breasts and such a lack of armor goes opposite of the tone these giantesses had i don't mind large breasts on minis, but i DO mind when they're unarmored or scantily armored there is no feasible way they'd actually go into battle like that. The fact they had to remove armor off these giantesses to add them is what bothers me. If they wanted to add more curvature to the minis, fine, but why remove the armor to do so? I LIKED the fact they had chest armor for once, a practical choice for people who actually fight.

    that's a different dragon class yea xD

    ^ that's the issue I see. These were made due to backer requests for female giants that looked like warriors, not posing sexily or with giant busts, and the concept art was great on that but the renders gave them what people were asking to NOT have...large busts. Backers were asking for fierce lady giants, and the concept art looked fantastic in having them look that part without needing large unsupported breasts getting in the way and being so pronounced. I honestly am not a fan of 'cheesecake' minis with large breasts unsupported and unnaturally armored. I was really excited about these giants, for a big part, becuase they didn't have such gratuitous 'look i' a sexy well endowed female' look to them that's why i'll be carving off the added on boobs and sculpting armor in their place to get them back to how they were when i pledged for them
