    DSM 1310 - 2008 Elmore Demoness by Cyr

    She is waiting for paint to dry to seal the base, then I'll glue some grass and garnets onto it. I modeled the rock after a blueschist covered in lichen.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So as the night progresses, I am thinking I am probably on the side of "going to be darn sore in the morning". ACK.

    Finishing my master's, visiting Vancouver and meeting my new group, visiting my brother and his wifey in Shanghai, possible field work in Utah, moving to THE CANADIAAAAA!!! I am plotting out how to paint my Captain Canada figure already.

    Did you stuff them with cheese and hot peppers?

    Good Eats!

    I'm going to try a modified version of the shrimp with Sir Cyr later this week. Less cilantro, more garlic-lime, and veggies instead of pasta

    BWAHAHAHA excellent joke! And NebulousMissy is also awesome.
  8. This also makes me very very happy. Reminds me of this troll-dad. https://www.boredpanda.com/dad-recreates-daughter-selfie-cassie-martin-chris-martin-part2/ Also, that Capt' isn't the most inflated Liefeld comic.

    Sir Cyr and I saw baby goose fluffers while jogging by a pond! Super cute! I jogged almost 2/3rds of a mile, he jogged a mile. Then we went inside to the gym and worked out. I did back/leg day. I have no idea how sore I'm going to be. I was doing more than when I was 100% weakling, but far far less than I could do at my peak. Either I'll wake up tomorrow going "huh, I'm okay" or "ugh, I'm going to die" and I have no idea which it will be.

    Looks like the necrodragon stretch goal was hit too.

    The lava has gone from kinda crunchy to more splashy and slippery!

    The thing about hair is that it grows on you, @Paradoxical Mouse

    You can kinda use the stippling to show where the wear occurs the most too, like the top of the shoulder might have more wear, from rubbing on a backpack (as an idea, not necessity). On belts and stuff like narrow straps, if you want them to be worn, you can do little dashes on the edges, perpendicular to the strap - where it would fold, crack, or even tear. I think it is better subtle in general, so light touch and slight color variation. Kinda depends on the project.

    Better! Looks like the leather corset part is more complete than her boots? The corset looks pretty good to me, but I think you could try texturing it if you want. Take a hue just a wee bit different than the color of the corset (at a given shadedness), and stipple it on top. Then glaze back over it with the original color. It is subtle, but can help give the impression of the leather being worn. However, if you want the polished leather look, you got it. Leather comes in many styles - just take a look at saddles as an example. They range from heavily polished to quite near suede textured!

    Personally I do not like the Rosy triad as my starting point. It too easily goes into sunburned or overly flushed tones. I do like it when accenting other tones though, like Rosy Shadow on lips, or Rosy Highlight as part of highlighting pale skin. It also gets a bit grainy if not super careful (at least mine does). My experience it just that it adds to the other skin triads well, but holds up poorly alone. Add more or less Rosy depending on how much blush you want. I think it is wise to keep progressing through the figure despite trouble. If the hair is troublesome, pick a figure that will be good for practicing hair next time - one with slightly thicker strands and nice chunks to work with. More figures means more experience, and some are better than others for training certain skills. Got more pics of the leather to check out? The lighting is making it tough to give good advice on that.
