    He looks great! He's got a fierce glare tucked away under that hood and I love the bright bold accent color, really makes him pop! My vote is that the second set of photos came out better, the colors seem to stand out better.

    Maybe I am overlooking it, but does it seem like you can pledge for just an add-on? All I want are those cute little baby monster minis

    Nice! I love how you got all those little accessories and details (especially on the Captain, since she has so many of them) to to be so distinctive!

    I can read and speak very basic Spanish and understand a bit more when it is spoken to me. I took 5 years of Latin in college/highschool. I loved it but have forgotten most of it by now. I have a friend who is now mostly deaf due to an accident so I have been taking several community (i.e. the hobby type) courses in ASL and I would really like to take some proper academic approved courses in it. It's fascinating.

    77134 - Hajad the Pirate

    I finished the last of the LTPK2 minis! The last one I did was Hajad the Pirate. About half way through I realized my brush skills were not up to the task on blending the shadows and highlights properly so I decided to exaggerate them instead so he came out looking a little comic book arty. I am pretty happy with the end result but this mini was mostly a lesson in how much I need to practice building up thin layers and blending. Also he was an epic eye failure, so he's a blind pirate. C'est la vie Either way, he was a lot of fun!

    What a great group! I love all the color choices, the Druid is my favorite but they are all great!

    77134 - Hajad the Pirate

    Thanks for the comments and tips! I figure I'll keep mixing paint and eventually I'll get there. I've got lots of minis to practice on! Thank goodness for Bones! That is the guide I actually try to follow. It has been extremely helpful! My little gnome thief actually had eyes that look sort of like eyes because of it. Hilariously, I just re-read it and I realized that on the last few minis I've done, I've been reversing the steps and using brown liner to block out the eye area, and then painting in a white.....which maybe part of the problem! lol

    Lol, you can tell I know my art terminology! And that is a great idea! I think I will add in solid black eyes, it'll look better than the vague nothingness there right now.

    77134 - Hajad the Pirate

    Thanks! I'm pretty sure part of the problem is that I am not thinning the paint enough. I haven't yet found the happy medium between so thin I accidentally made a glaze and oops that is not at all thinned!

    I really like that they have an "Expanded Spellbook" Pledge level where you can get the set, plus the extras you normally always need without having to piecemeal it together. Should make the Pledge Manager a lot simpler!
