    Dameon has explained the reason things got listed as Shipped in Backerkit so many times now.

    Getting attached is fine...as long as you understand it's because you'll be memorializing them :D

    Dameon popped up on KS comments to say he thinks he should be done shipping soon, possibly Wednesday. He did address some of the KS commenters, almost all of which have shipped already.

    Cash's 2018 Art

    Just got back from a 5 day workshop on head construction at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto. Really brutal (I got eviscerated for my line quality), but so good. I got it toughest because the teacher and I got along great and the class content was pretty much exactly where I am in my autodidacting. But it pushed me hard and not only did I do some decent work in class, I have a roadmap for improvement across a few skills. Here's the piece from the last day. It's not finished, more of focusing on different components of producing a finished drawing. Charcoal on Arches 90lb cold press, 11x16.

    I have empathy for Dameon and I'm not upset. But even I'm surprised it's taken this long. Though if he's has a couple weeks to pack, it can take 10-15 days to get to the US, so I'm still a week or two from even thinking about poking him about it. I had been looking forward to maybe painting a mini from the haul, but that window closed and I won't be able to think about painting a mini until maybe August, so....

    Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    I probably would've caved, because I do like the enhancements to the basic formula and setting. But a week of art workshops makes this whole mini gaming hobby budget thing look quaint! (Spoiler: it's very expensive)

    Hasslefree is not even remotely a dying company. Ye gods, people. It's getting to be like KS comments in here.

    Doing the best you can under circumstances is exactly what makes it ok. Of course you have the right to be unhappy about it, but that's how life works.

    Or, hear me out, they're trying to sell the game.

    Final portrait from the Prokopenko course. It was a slog with the hair and costume! Charcoal on newsprint, 18x24.

    I've convinced myself not to buy by using the money to buy a bunch of art books :) I have several games that barely get played as it is. And this one is tempting because I like the basic formula and they keep making better rules iterations every year. I watched a rules overview from Watch It Played on YouTube, go check it out if you want to get a feel for it (not sure if they linked it on the campaign page yet). I like a LOT of the mechanics and the sci-fi setting. It was an easy pass until the video :)

    Scratch that, I have studied one of his paintings quite a bit, from before I was even a painter. I just didn't realize until tonight that it was an Henri! :O We were at a Bach/Chopin performance at the museum connected to my school and I always go look at this painting there in intermissions:

    Return of the regular model. Head is basically done, one more session (which is usually food and wine more than painting). Really happy with how the hair came out, since loose and gestural has been a struggle for me.

    I like a few of the alien heroes, but yeah. Most of the sculpts are underwhelming here. It's especially bad when the mobs are not great, because there are so many of them. Kinda sucks because the rules look like a nice evolution of the formula.

    I thumb through the Art Spirit now and again, but I do need to study his work more.

    Portrait model couldn't make it again this week, so we had a sub. Really great model. I got kinda carried away with the layin, decided to just keep working it in monochrome. One brush for paint, one for turps. 2 hours. Oil on canvas board, 8 x 10.

    My most-liked drawing is a portrait of K2SO from Rogue One. I feel your pain! Makes sense, though. People who already like the IP plus people who like your work.

    Ann Arbor has been dealing with their Lion Knight overpopulation issue for a while now. :D

    Mine haven't shown up almost a month after getting a despatch notice. Not worried, finding plenty to fill the painting time. Looking forward to getting them and painting a mini this year, though!

    The model had to work his normal job last night, so after some chit-chat, we decided to have a selfie night. And actually it's an idea for a new class at the school! Old school selfies! Anyway, I was pretty happy this happened, as I've wanted to start doing self-portraits for practice (cheap model!), and this was a nice jumpstart for that! Only had about an hour and a half to paint it, so it was really difficult to produce anything close to a finished product, though the goal was just a simple study, not a finished painting. I was very happy that my practice with heads over the last few months has really put me in the zone. I jumped right into it, the rest of the class kind of eased in with fits and starts. But I know how I like to light things and have been abstracting a lot of heads, so I was able to make full use of the time, though only a couple finishing touches after spending way too long messing around with the right eye (I was going to paint in my glasses but ran out of time and had to rework the lighting to remove the shadows I had put in. Normally I'm reworking dried areas, so working alla prima I ended up killing the chroma, but that's why we do studies!
  22. We go a bit thicker in the highlights, a bit thinner in the shadows; tricks for using light in the room when looking at the finished painting.

    I was getting a Chet from Weird Science vibe from it.

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