    Painter vs Painter: Household edition

    Finally able to paint again! Stupid finger injuries. Alas I spread the Kolbold Scale out to cover more leather (Gloves and Boots). Typically I'd of used a couple more colors to add depth of wardrobe, but this challenge isn't about that. Also used the Cursed Gold/Cats-eye Green on the blade of the staff. Used the Black Indigo and a dry brushing of Cursed Gold for the book cover, while Tusk Ivory for the pages. I think my most unnoticeable detail, thanks to crappy cell phone camera work on my part, is the use of the Punk Rock Pink on the hip sash. Used it to outline the cloth and then do a repeating 4 dot diamond pattern. Basing is left, but that always is a stumpper... What y'all think?

    Painter vs Painter: Household edition

    Whelp, this has been a rough week for my side of the rivalry. I was able to get some work done on Hosilla, but working 6 days this week (at 12hrs each) cut into my hobby time. But lets show off what little I was able to do... Firstly I added a bit of the Tusk Ivory to the leather vest and to the sash around her waist. Applied a thin wash of the Black indigo to the Honed Steel of the chain armor to get a more worn look. I think the Indigo overtook the Silver of the Steel coloring, I'm on the fence about it. For the weapon, I took 3 drops of Ginger Cookie and 1 of Dragon Red to get the light wood coloring, since I wasn't given a brown to work with (the horror!!). Bleached Linen for the wrapping of the handle and the draping of the sash. I think I need to do a lot of touch ups, and more blending but.... ...my main painting hand is out of commission for a bit. @Zanderina will have lots more time to get her piece together now. Which btw, she is doing quite well on. I'll bug her for an update for y'all soon. Cheers!

    Painter vs Painter: Household edition

    I think I lucked into some decent colors, but my execution of some blending needs help. My first step was her face. I used the Ginger Cookie for her skin tone, Black Indigo for makeup and the Leather white/Cats Eye Green for the eyes (Not that the green can be seen here). Is it me, or is she smirking about something?! I followed up by attempting some Strawberry Blonde hair. Layered Dragon Red first, followed by thin glazing of Golden Blonde. I was not impressed, so I glazed a bit of Dragon Red back over. The results look almost as if her hair was dyed and the roots are showing. Next was the chain mail and I started the leather vest. @Zanderina was nice enough to give me Honed Steel for the chain, and my favorite color for leather, Kobold Scale. I'm thinking of doing a VERY thin layer of the Black Indigo over the chain, just to give a worn/aged look to the metal. Not sure where the Punk Rock Pink and more of the Green will fit in. But its a WiP, and something to be having fun with. Cheers y'all!
  4. So my girl ( @Zanderina) and I got into this wonderful hobby together, and we've developed a few tricks and styles our own. Well yesterday I was told my style is very dark and 'Earthy'. No offense taken, but it hit me I do need to extend my color pallet choices. This lead to a small challenge between us, as we're apparently very competitive with each other. We'd pick out our model to be done next, and the other person would pick the paints to use. My model choice was Hosilla (#60172), and received the following Reaper paints to use: Dragon Red (9401), Cats Eye Green (9414), Bleached Linen (9436), Punk Rock Pink (9286), Leather White (9062), Honed Steel (9053), Ginger Cookie (9659), Cursed Gold (9464), Kobold Scale (9458), Golden Blonde (9033), Tusk Ivory (29825), & Black Indigo (9603) Her choice of model was the Arcanamirim Wizard (#60135), and I gave her the following paints: Old Bronze (9197), Dungeon Slime (9415), Solid White (29842), Chestnut Brown (9071), Sunrise Orange (9406), Wilderness Green (9411), Stark Naked (9682), Harvert Brown (9200), Goblin Skin (9457), Ashen Blue (9057), & Khaki Highlight (9123) Over the next couple weeks we will be posting up the WiP pics and hope to get feedback as we go. Let the fun begin!!
  5. Thank you Mark! I was ever so hoping she'd become available. I'm already in for over $120, guess I can add more now. Cheers on a successful campaign.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Thanks @NecroMancer & @Cyradis. I've added to the pledge, and was hoping it would work like that.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Got my pledge in for 2 busts, but i have a question maybe y'all can answer as i'm fairly new to KS. If I wanna add add-ons such as the stands for the busts and a set of brushes, do I just change my pledge amount and hope they inquire, or do they have a order form to fill?
  8. Lots of work done, so much more to go. You can rock it! I'm tempted to do a Khanjira challenge as I have many days off in December, but the SO would probably have issues to it. So I'll vicariously do the challenge by watching your awesomeness.

    Hang out and paint - Discord and Google Hangouts

    I been looking for the "Hey! I'm online" thread but my Search-fu sucks. Been trying to be more social and thought a hangout while my brush made a mess of a mini. Is there a general hangout or discord that is always available or is one created away the time someone sets it up? I've not used either platform before.

    Favored paint handle putty

    @CorallineAlgae That's what i'm working with. I bought the grip to go with, since I was so use to the Citadel holder. Never thought of the foam tape. Might be an experiment. Trying to get the Frost Giant Princess Svetlana (metal) to stay on caps is being a pain.

    Favored paint handle putty

    That's the holder. I've tried hot glue, and the poster tack. Each allowed my model to tumble off after a short while. I just worried to use super glue on the mini before basing it, and I've yet to learn how to pin.
  12. Title asks it all. I have the hobby holder miniature painting handle and need a putty that'll hold up to some of reaper's bigger models. I found some blue poster tack stuff, but my model keeps taking a tumble. And suggestions from the hive mind?

    01596 Joy, Winter Fairy, sculpted by B. Ridolfi

    Simply amazing work. Thank you for sharing your inspiration and providing some of us with some too.
  14. @Zanderina and I just saw that model today and nearly ordered a few of them. That's very close to the style she has been searching for.

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    That's pretty much what i meant. I have tried hitting up the University of YouTube for such, as well as creative beginning basing ideas, but without the working basics of the ideas I get frustrated. I know it takes trial and error, hence why I have many models with arms and weapons glued on funky or some on blank bases with just a little Citadel texture paint globbed on. The more you know, the more pleasure you can get out of the journey to a finished mini, at least that's my thoughts. This x2!!
