  1. February 2018 Goals!

    Realized I was incorrect about the submission date. I have a WEEK! YAY! I really AM going to make it! Base work will be completed today and final touch ups, then my comp mini will be done!
  2. Black Tree Design - Minotaurs

    Thank you. I may have to put a small order together to see. I've heard about their Customer Service (which frustrates me, since that was my thing before becoming unemployed).
  3. Rising Sun River Dragon

    Very nice. I got a Ten Thunders dragon recently for a Lung Dragon, but this is much more impressive than mine. Very cool!
  4. Weekly Bones 3 road to improvment

    I am a color theorist here and I think you did very well. You asked for a C&C based on your own critiques, so I'm going to jump in with a few suggestions I've gotten over the years, which have helped me improve as a painter, too. And, as a note, I want to point out you've tackled a few figures I have not yet (but your cobra has given me an idea for my cobra, albeit in a different scheme, so thank you!). Now, anything I say, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take it as my experience and what I PERSONALLY find to be helpful. You will find your own path, I am sharing my path with you so that you can see some ideas. Feel free to ignore me or use what you want, as my intent is to be helpful. Detailed critique of everything Final thoughts: I say you're doing most excellent! You've got great brush control, the models look good, and the only real things you're struggling with are the things we ALL struggle with (shadows and highlights and FACES!). A little bit of layering here and there, and there are plenty of resources on glazing, washes, drybrushing (something handy for fur), and I think you'll find you'll be able to improve as a painter to whatever level you choose!
  5. Black Tree Design - Minotaurs

    Excellent brushwork, and the colors are really well done. The models themselves have a lot of character and feel like old school minotaurs (a big plus in my book), and your paint job just adds to that, so you did great! I am curious, since I've looked at Black Tree before, how is their casting quality?

    Japan. They have found a way to keep tradition alive while still being so extraordinarily technologically savvy. I would love to visit Japan for that reason. Mind you, I realize this would break some of my illusions.

    I have Brown hair and I comb it simply. I keep it boring.
  8. I saw Black Panther last night with my family, including spouse. Spouse looked at it from a movie standpoint. I look at it from an experience standpoint. I got to have a great conversation with my eldest son that led to some real world discussion afterwards. This was a well-done movie. The cast, crew, and director should all be proud.

    2/16 The first miniature I painted was a space marine that is LONG gone painted with horrible craft acrylics. 2/17: Best miniature is so subjective. To date? I'm not sure anymore. I'm thinking Abyzarran from a couple years ago, but I've improved since then and I've got an amazing PP shredder I did recently that I'm very proud of the basing, the top, the model, everything. Jury's out. 2/18: Amusement mostly. I paint to enjoy myself and the games I play. I enter the state known as "Flow" when I paint, and the world ceases to exist for a while. While in that state, I am content in ways I cannot describe, it is a self-created drug of a sort. No wonder I want to paint and do artistic things.

    @Mad Jack That is Terrifying, and I LOVE Bacon.

    Well, they say that Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, so here is a group of them! Edit: And they are Tony DiTerlizzi Beholders, which make me happy. Obviously, image is copyright Wizards of the Coast.

    I hate Valentine's day with the fury of a thousand supernovas. Unless we're talking about massacres, then I find the historical mafia significance interesting.

    Best "failure?" Several are similar in scale, but I'll go with the series of failures that cost me my job in November. I learned more about myself and my mind in that series of failures than succeeding would have ever taught me.
  14. The Divine Miss Mags the Trash Heap

    LOL. The first thought I had was that Mags or her attendants would correct anyone to say that she's "voluptuous." There's a certain amount of confidence that she exudes, and I would have said the same for Madame Trash Heap. As to the "miniature" size, that's on par with Khanjira and some others that Reaper has made (mine's based on a 10" disc). That's one heck of a feat. @TaleSpinner is absolutely right, you are both improving and growing in more than one way with what you are creating.
  15. The Divine Miss Mags the Trash Heap

    She's great, and whimsical, and fits your world perfectly, Al. All the little bits and pieces come together and make the greater whole that is The Divine Miss Mags. I believe I've forgotten to ask, how big is her base and how tall is she?
