    I'm on, and will likely stay online for at least an hour or two...

    Inspired is a great word for it... I was inspired by you! And the bright colours were 100% chosen in honour of your magnificent work.

    Finished those guys up! They're not amazing but perfect is the enemy of finished, and I want these guys being dorks on my shelf, not cluttering up my desk... http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84439-gnollblins/

    Calling these little maniacs done. Not the greatest paint job ever and I should probably have done something - anything - with the bases, but oh well. They were a ton of fun to paint. For those who hadn't seen the WIP thread, these guys are old Night Goblin bodies (sent to me by the ever-amazing @malefactus ) with heads from the Frostgrave plastic gnoll kit.
  5. What a feast for the soul! Your work never fails to delight and inspire, mal! And it's always immensely entertaining. Particular favourites from the last couple months: the Bad Attitude Moai is hysterical, the gnome and his bots are stunning, and the Feral Flora is terrifying and gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your wit and vision with us!

    I kinda failed in my goal of hanging out here more frequently for the remainder of the year... But at least I'm here now, right? Happy new year all! I hope everyone is doing well and has enjoyed a fantastic holiday season (or the best possible through all the illnesses anyway)!

    Not a huge difference, and of course I can never get a good picture, but I did some more highlighting on the fur. I have very little time to paint so I figured I'd document this progress, as minimal as it is... And @malefactus - they're actually not based yet! I've just got them standing in blue sticky tack. Next time: time to start the green! Unless I get distracted by shiny objects again.

    Got the yellow sorted out to my satisfaction on these maniacs. Next up will probably be the green, before going back to the skin/fur. The contrast is a bit better in person... The highlights in the yellow are brighter.

    I'm on until about 8:15 Eastern if anyone wants to join!
  10. My goodness, I'd completely forgotten about Mags and her minions! It's great to see the gang all finished up! And that dragon... I lived with a couple drag queens for a year, and let me tell you, that dragon's pose is very familiar... If it were me, I'd be tempted to see if I could figure out some sort of feather boa for that fabulous beast... Delightful work as always, mal! And definitely gets me more fired up to get some more paint on those gnollblins of mine, now that I'm starting to be able to sit upright for a while!

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. Well,I guess I have some new projects if I ever get the money...
  14. 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.
