  1. I'm here, had a great scuplting textures class yesterday :)
  2. ReaperCon

    You can always try to talk with Schubert when he is at the artists tables and get his feedback then. I did that last year and he was very nice and gave me some really good constructive feedback.
  3. You can never go wrong with Dark Chocolate :)
  4. I prefer parchment paper over the wet pallet paper. It keeps the paint moist but not too wet and doesn't soak into the parchment. I also like the fact when you are done you throw the paper towel and the parchment paper away and you do not have to worry about mold and such.
  5. I picked up my small portable battery operated OTTlite at Joanne's on sale and got it for about $24.00. Make sure you pack plenty of extra batteries because it does go through them fast.
  6. For brushes and files you can use a plastic traveling toothbrush holder.
  7. you may also want to bring your own light, a small ottlite or something preferably one that is battery operated since the number of power outlets could be limited.
  8. Blue Liner, I use it in hair, for shading, for mixing, and of course some for lining. Linen and Ghost white Walnut Brown Berrone Blue - it goes on so nicely Bucksin Pale Tanned Skin Nightmare black has become a new favorite Fireball orange and carrot top red - both great on red heads for highlights Red shadow
  9. I usually pick out one item on the mini I really want to paint and figure out the color I want it, it could be hair, skin, dress, pouches, cloak just something. Once I get the first color down the rest usually falls into place. Another thing I do is look at my paint and see what color I have not used for a while and try using that as the main color for the mini.
  10. I saw the picture and then I saw the bottom of Corpore's post that says "oh, you mean I can put stuff here? Cool! not to think of something..." and it cracked me up.
  11. Happy Birthday!!
  12. I am always happy to see one of your postings because your work is absolutely gorgous, but this piece is just beyond words!
  13. I know it is scary entering but you should definitely do it! Last year was my first time entering and I was scared as well, but it was definitely worth it! You can get great feedback and the process was really easy. As for paints if you check your bag it is fine, just make sure you put it in a non leak container just in case. Having liquids is only a problem if you want to carry the paints on the plane in your carryon bag. Also there is plenty of paint to use at the convention so you do not have to bring your own if you do not want to.
  14. Lovely work - I enjoyed the WIP thread on this one as well. Good luck in the contest!
  15. Martin - a beautiful job as always, I love it! :)
