    Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    That one seems to have lost a lot in translation from concept.

    Someone tell Kuro about the Solomon game! He will crush the paint jobs on those!

    Cash's 2018 Art

    Continuing the oil portrait, refining the low values in the shadowlands. In particular reshaping the eye socket and revamping the eye, so it no longer glows (compare it to the eye on the last WIP pic above). The dark area is where I prepared the canvas to work on by oiling in with some linseed oil cut slightly with solvent (I use gamsol odorless mineral spirits or OMS) and wiped back. This helps me see the values correctly, as the dark stuff lightens considerably, especially the quick drying earth pigments. That's why the hair looks so light here. The final painting will be varnished, which brings back those luminous darks (if that's not too much of an oxymoron!). It also allows me to work into a slipperier surface than the dried pigments.

    Thanks! Though he had even more character than that, I just couldn't capture his Eastern European mix of gruffness and humor....YET

    Cash's 2018 Art

    Here's the first of two portraits at the end of Stan Prokopenko's portrait course. Highly recommend it, Mori did it too! Charcoal on newsprint, approx. 11x14.
  6. Interesting angle on drying. I've been applying it to mediums but didn't think much about it with tube paint itself. the cads take forever to dry, I paint once a week in class and can usually just keep using my cads, all the earth pigments get refreshed on the palette each week. Also, I do use a soft brush quite a bit, the bristles add too much texture for anything but rough early painting. For mid-painting, I've been trying some mixed brushes, real and synthetic, that purport to be a blend of stiff and smooth. Not good enough for smooth work, but less textured and destructive than straight bristles.

    Really wish they had done better work with the character/monster design and minis. Some card previews popped up on FB and it looks like a nice twist on the theme.
  8. Check here for my first year of drawing and painting, 2016: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66657-cashs-2016-art/ Onward with year two! First up is a sketchbook piece, 5.5x8.5 graphite. I'll probably keep posting stuff as digest, I dunno. Just winging it! And a study from the studio today, 18x24 charcoal on newsprint (my usual):

    I took a few step-by-steps for a couple of the features studies:
  10. Thanks! I kinda left off updating the thread and my blog, since it mostly seemed like I was talking to myself :D

    They look much better in the concept art.
  12. I wish you had posted this a couple years ago before I had to learn it the long way :D Good stuff, though! I'm still using store-bought acrylic gesso on cheap canvas, but I will probably start using better surfaces and prep now that I've got a few paintings under my belt (more or less). I will probably avoid lead white for the ground, because I do portraits I like a glass smooth surface to work on and yeah, I'm not going to be sanding lead, either. I have a few decent brushes but finally ordered a few nice brushes from Rosemary.

    Hokey pokey for sure. And I don't see soft edges as a good thing!

    So they are making a new version of Sedition Wars with crappier sculpts.

    Kickstarter alert from LifeLock

    They also support Google Authenticator, which is nice. As far as card info, it's just an inevitability your card info is going to get lifted at some point. Being vigilant with your statements (I check mine weekly) and accounts is key, most major cards have great fraud protections. Only downside is having to memorize a new card number :D

    I suggest you also enable two-factor authentication and keep an eye on your activity log to verify it's just your devices accessing the service.

    Buncha derned racists in here!

    Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Agreed. I don't like .that sculpt at any level. Clearly a cash grab for the 40k crowd, without any of the style and character that usually makes their stuff good. I'm actually good with that, I could use the money to buy a painting or something :D

    Low Life Miniatures

    I'm pretty happy with this development. As I said on KS, not only do I want my stuff, I'm hopeful this line of minis will be available to the public at some point, completely unconnected to Mick.

    Finally got my shipping despatch! Usually about ten days out from the UK, so hopefully I'll have some goodies for next weekend...

    Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    I mean, I really don't want to get any more Zombicide, as the closet is filling up and Green Horde went directly to the shelf...but I have a feeling we'll be looking at some amazing heroes in this one. I was just thinking when GH arrived "I hope they don't go scifi next time, so I can walk away happy" Dernit. Now I need to have a think on it.

    Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    It's a long wait for those of us who went nuts on the original KS :) I should really build some of those kits. I did build the Flower Knight because I love that sculpt so much. And as a reference for a piece of art I'm working on.

    Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

    Just got my email, I had most, if not all, the stuff that was last in production so no surprise there. Also decided to catch up on some newer releases and added Bjornolf, Sigrid, and Halvan. Going to have to make time to paint a mini or two when they come in!

    People have offered you alternatives (using facebook). Dameon wrote a KS update to address your question (because he couldn't log in here at the time and it spreads info better), and specifically mentions your concerns in it. He has been very open and honest at every step of the way and will do everything in his power to make things right, because that's how HF does business and always has. Just be patient and everything will be fine.
