    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Decided to try painting this morning, opened up my wet palette, decided to bleach my wet palette instead of painting. Yuck. Now I need to take basic steps to dog-proof my main floor so my therapist's dog (she's a trained therapy dog... Very cool) doesn't have anything too ridiculous she can get into, but once that's done I might go empty the bleach out of the wet palette and try painting again. Or I might nap. Tough call.
  2. Fun little fact... When choosing a new name, I wanted to keep my initials, so I needed an E name for my middle name. I chose Esmerelda in honour of Granny Weatherwax.
  3. Well,I guess I have some new projects if I ever get the money...
  4. If I'm not mistaken, the lady he's trying to chat up is Granny Weatherwax, making that mushroom either the bravest or most oblivious of your creations yet... I love the new work, as always! Especially the big spooky pumpkin head!

    Not this surgery. The recovery from incisions etc is reasonably straight forward and follows expected timelines (although from talking to friends it really is normal to expect it to take 4 months for the swelling to go down), the real nuisance of it is the aftercare routine, which is... Pretty intense, to put it mildly. At least for the first 3 months. But worth it. Sounds about right, yeah.

    Useful info for you all: recovery from this surgery is ridiculous. And I'm unlikely to be able to sit long enough to get significant painting done for a while.

    Happy Birthday canuckotter

    Thank you for the birthday wishes! This is definitely going to be one to remember... Had surgery on Monday, moved to the recovery residence today. The recovery so far is not fun, but I'm so much closer to being whole... Most painful birthday ever. And best birthday ever.
  8. The shaman is wonderful! He looks perfectly in place in your world... Equal parts whimsy and delight and worrying madness. And the pumpkins look promising!

    I love these kinds of conversations...

    Started base coating the gnollblins. I tend to start with the medium shadow colour and work my way up from there. These critters are gonna be bright.

    Anyone feel like hanging out with me for about 45 minutes as I work on gnollblins?

    Not to worry, they're not operating anywhere near my forehead. Random thought just occurred to me... I REALLY won't be allowed to put a pic of that acquisition in the acquisitions thread...

    I was surprised with how mean those ones did come out... Happy, but surprised. They're going to be a little bit on the scary side, I think. I originally planned to have these done in a really bright style but I think now I'm going to go with @Jordan Peacock 's idea of more muted tones, probably with some gruesome details if I'm feeling up to it. (My painting skills are really rusty...) These guys, on the other hand... They seem like they might fit in @malefactus 's world. Small, cute, and very worrying. I had a hard time getting a picture of them, but once I get pins in their feet and can start painting them, it should be easier to see what they really look like. Might need a bit of green stuff to fix some transitions first. Then they're getting painted up in the most malefactian style I can manage.

    @malefactus sent me some old Games Workshop plastic night goblins, and instead of putting them together properly I decided to stick the heads on the bodies of some Frostgrave plastic gnolls. There's another one but he's badly unbalanced (in more ways than one) and keeps falling over.

    That sounds fascinating to me...
