    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I was running Cross Country in high school during the Yellowstone fires in the 80's .. we did all of our training runs and most of the races with surgical masks. That was loads of fun... especially the one race where we relocated to the high desert ( ~8000' elevation ) and then ended up still wearing masks..

    It's most likely just a digital camera USB'd into a computer.. tell them to plug in a smart phone already! however, if it's a polaroid, you might consider going to a different DMV office.. :D

    I struggle with this on my larger ones too.. Excellent job on them, I must say though :)

    Sleeping Beauty Diorama

    Oops! Called my bluff.. I seem to have spent the vacation money on miniatures.. Although Australia is on the 'when-the-kids-are-out-of-the-house' travel list :D

    Had a good friend learn that the hard way when his driver rolled their M1A2 on night maneuvers.. Both he and the loader live in Arlington now because of that night..

    Sleeping Beauty Diorama

    Finally finished with my first 'original' diorama. I backed a terrain kickstarter last year when my kids were playing Frostgrave with me and by the time it all arrived, their attention spans had wandered - and so, the terrain pieces went back into the box they came with and were (mostly) forgotten.. Meet Sir Felshire, paladin of Sune. One evening, as he was on 3rd watch, he was presented with a vision of a beautiful maiden, locked in enchanted sleep deep within a forest. Waking his companions, he excitedly told them of his vision. Dobbin, the halfling dismissed the tale, stating that there are so many stories of maidens imprisoned by evil that he has made entire fortunes off them ( err.. could have, that is).. Sir Felshire wondered, not for the first time, at the slip of language that hinted that his companion might not be as honest as he presented himself to be. The other two members of the group, Erryn and Anirion, were more easily swayed by his drive to rescue this maiden. After many months of searching, here we have the brave band at the pinnacle of their quest.. Our fearless band's mounts! Isn't she cold? Dobbin, thrilled as usual, keeping an eye out while the others are occupied.. Anirion, the androgynous wizard.. Erryn and Sir Felshire.. Now how does one awaken a princess in enchanted sleep? Perhaps our merry band of adventurers is not done yet! Dobbin will be thrilled... I had a lot of fun painting these folks, even if I did wimp out and skip on the original idea of attempting translucent sheets.. The WIP is here

    Sleeping Beauty

    Nearly done! debased Mr Paladin, then glued and pinned him (or was it pinned and glued?).. A few touch-ups left and I'll be ready for a showoff, I think :) (and some better pictures!)

    Sleeping Beauty

    Got a start on the Beauty herself tonight. Her blanket is Violet Red, the Roses are Blush Pink, the flowers are a concoction of Pale Lichen, Forest Green and Shadow Green.. The wood is Sepia Liner over white primer (I decided I liked the look, so didn't go any deeper on the wood) Her skin gave me fits and I did it 3 times.. the final is fair skin, then flesh wash, then rosy skin, then another light coat of flesh wash and finally a light coat of rosy skin because that came out darker than I wanted still.. .

    As did I (and now live in a different small town), but even small doses of concentrated stupid are better than diffused large doses of the same..

    Living in a small town limits the stupid :D

    Sleeping Beauty

    Painted Erryn up this weekend but managed to neglect to actually take pictures until I had pinned and glued her on.. Not happy that her clothes look shiny - perhaps the ultra-matt varnish that i ordered the other day will help with that..
