    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    Pictures?! If we're doing pictures, I'm suggesting baby bat burritos and baby goats in sweaters. AHHHHHHH. If we're doing life news, the brain weasels have been especially bitey this week but leave just as fast as they arrive. I am very thankful for this. I've been fighting especially hard all year, y'all. I want to stick around. I want to make art! We went to the beach last weekend and I got to look at stars and birds and fish, we even saw a jellyfish and a porpoise! <3 Tonight: I played Guild Wars 2 with some of my favorite guildies. Friday: my lovely husband is running a new 5e game for us on a snazzy mat from @Clearman! Thank you! My brother-in-law even wants to paint with us for a little bit before the game. He's so awesome. Saturday: we're driving down to see @Rainbow Sculptor and @emmagine for tabletop and party game fun times! A very packed weekend with fun folks. I'm going to be all peopled out by Sunday!

    Clean!!! It's cleeean!!! Thanks for the accountability, @TaleSpinner. I needed that. I did find my lights and my friend board, but I have no idea where to put them - I've never been in front of a window before haha. My sculpting section is on the left and painting on the right. When my husband paints with me, I stay on my sculpting side since I'm a lefty. (I actually have a big, scary stack of papers to go through still, but that can wait another day. Shhhhhhh.) When I worked IT, I always had a tab open for the Randomness section. Funny how much time I had for that.... I don't visit nearly as often, but I love the Sculpting, Randomness, and WIP sections! Lots of chatting with friends and learning fun things!

    I love math! I'd agree with the folks here talking about change, tax, and whatnot. It was one of my favorite subjects and I took classes a few levels above my grade. I once bought the Algebra and Calculus books for Dummies (those big yellow books) because I was bored and wanted something to do. I don't know what I was thinking haha! In school I used to rewrite all my math notes and homework when I was done because everything was neat and organized and it all just made sense. My brain is much slower now, since the forgetfulness of the last couple years. My vocabulary is down, my math speed is down, my connections of faces to people, it's all just .... augh. :< I love your space! .... I can't believe I still haven't unpacked my hobby lights!!! I don't even know where they are.

    I'm not done cleaning yet..... @NecroMancer - I was at Rainbow Sculptor's house last weekend and I asked about the art book - she said it was by Christopher Hart. Drawing Cutting Edge Comics. She mentioned his other books were hit or miss, but that particular book was a solid start for beginner artists looking for learning. I'm not sure of her age, but it's focused on Western animation, so the proportions for men and women uhhhh, strongly reflect that. I love the people - I love their creative energy, the feeling of belonging, the absolute openness of knowledge and sharing. I also love that I found my creative outlet through minis. I loved drawing but taking some putty and creating something that didn't exist before - something that I can touch, I'm a very tactile person at heart - is the best feeling in the world for me. There's nothing like it. Realizing that there was a way to just create was just mind-blowing for me. Yes!! That is such a good description!!

    @Guindyloo - Yes!! I love your three part answer for today. Also. When you posted your cleaned up desk, I just shouted, "Mug! MUG. MUG." in quite an unintelligent fashion. I love that mug!! Augh!!!!!! Cleaning one thing is on my daily list anyways.... It might as well be a giant thing. My art area is one wall of the living room. Just a few months ago, everything was just smushed onto my computer desk and closet. I'm grateful for the space! The black boxes on the bookshelf are still organized, but the brown ones aren't. And I've got a pile of unpacked stuff under the desk and on the white shelf on the left.... The pegboards are also not actually on the bookshelf. It's nearly impossible to take anything off the pegs without taking the whole board with it. >_> I still haven't even unpacked my friend board... And my sculpting section is more like a game of "I Spy" than an actual work area, haha! I don't think I've sculpted since ReaperCon, though I've been slowly gathering up supplies. A pickle jar, really? What... where was I going with that?

    Mori Learns Skintones!

    I don't know why I glazed orange or purple. I just figured they were opposites so I grabbed them. The purple ended up turning brown with the orange glaze over it, which I thought was handy. It wasn't meant as a lining, just that I put it where I thought the light wouldn't be visible. I was using my own leg and the desk lamp had strong lighting. I'm also not very pink, which is why I started with the golden colors. I think y'all are very much right when saying that the other stuff around the mini strongly affects other parts. I never noticed before! Okay yeah now I want to make a thread about this too. I want to know everyone's clock!

    Mori Learns Skintones!

    I mentioned in my post that the photo was making it look really gold, and then mentioned that I would make another mini with these colors again, and make this one extra gold to match the photo. I can take a better photo now that it's not dark outside. :) @Guindyloo - Thank you! Okay, whelp. I'll thin them more LOL. I took a photo of my palette to ask questions and I completely forgot.... To ask them. I was able to see the text on the newspaper when I painted a test spot on it, though. I will read through that other paragraph a few more times to make sure I understand everything in it. I only used the purple on the side of her thighs that's touching the fabric. So the priming is going to throw everything off - this was just a big set of minis that I primed so if we needed them while I was working, they wouldn't have blinding white clothes with normal skin. So just ignore that. She had a solid base coat on her skin first. When I'm painting the skin, I had it coming from her top left since that seems to be the basic lighting spot.

    Mori Learns Skintones!

    @Doug Sundseth - It's perfect info, thank you. :) I'll try both of those ways tomorrow. I should have mentioned that I only painted a base coat on her face. I think the shading there is speaking kindly of the sculptor. It wasn't intentional, but I think I'm gonna make this piece with Almalexia's colors. I've got a ton of minis for practice so I'll just start another one to see where I got so gold, and make that one more human looking! :D

    Mori Learns Skintones!

    Time to get past single color painting, whoooo!As always, I appreciate love and critiques.I need to get my webcam setup, because she showing up as crazy gold with this phone. I'm getting some serious Almalexia feelings from her now! I need to work on setting up the little steps on the palette. I feel like it takes more light drops to equal one dark drop. I'm also finding that I'm not letting the colors dry before putting on the next one, should I be....? I did make sure to let it dry completely before doing a glaze with the orange brown! Wow. She is so gold. I kind of want to glaze a yellow over it now to make it match this in real life....
