    ...debating how to do a Hawaiian pattern to the cloak. Bobby! No Hawaiian shirt?! How'm I supposed to do hibiscus patterned armor?! I didn't notice the pug on the metal pic. That's so awesome! Also, the expression is perfect. The eyebrow!! Yup, will have to try to pick up a resin. edit: Jason's hair is mostly gray now. Distinguished and wise!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    random plug for charity: our FLGS is hosting Dungeons and Donations for our local children's hospital. We have 3 hours left in our 24 hour marathon of gaming featuring the classic Encounter at Barrier Peak. We're live on twitch and the main page is here. Feel free to donate- must rescue the children! Also... you can Bane or Boon the players. It's awfully fun to hit them with random acts of cruelty! The death counter is currently at 26.

    Priming Reaper Bones Dragons

    I never really prime my bones. I do wash them with soap and water, but I generally just lay down a basecoat. The liner trick can be a good one if you're having trouble with the white plastic in terms of seeing the details, since it collects better in crevices. Bones white plastic is hard to see detail otherwise. The main key when putting your first layer of paint or primer is to make sure it isn't thinned. Just straight out of the bottle, otherwise the bones plastic, being slightly hydrophobic, will keep it from covering well. Wren's article are stellar on this topic. Definitely worth checking out. They should be pinned at the top of the Bones subtopic index

    Depends on the color, but I usually basecoat a midtone then do all the shading and highlighting with the lines. In the case of the red above (because red does not cover well,) I basecoated mahogany and then worked up.

    use texture. A crosshatch technique would work. You alternate vertical and horizontal lines to get the rough textured pattern. like this: Done with very fine lines, the texture may vanish and the blend will look smoother. If you leave more space between your lines you can get a rougher texture. You can also shade and highlight with this, just using your other colors and working in brighter and darker shades. This works well with a lot of different textured fabrics. Have fun! It's a fussy technique. Don't be afraid to keep going over it with more lines. As long as the paint is thinned, you can play with the lines to your heart's content! Here's what I did with the cape of my giant mouseling:

    NaNoWriMo 2018

    My cat jumped on my computer and somehow one of my files ceased to exist. I tried everything, including calling my computer guru friends, but alas, 3400 words gone. Bad kitty. No cookie. So, I spent today on the couch replacing those words and the ones due for today. While my word count only reads that I'm meeting my goal, I have achieved 3400 more than that. Of course, I have done nothing else today, I feel like a complete couch potato and am cranky as all get out and now I hate my novel with passion because the new words are not the ones I wrote before and I can't remember those words and am fairly certain the new ones aren't as good... run on sentence must STOP! Ahem. Yes. At any rate, I am back on track and will find a way to triple back up everything. Sigh. Don't let it happen to you, fellow NANOers. Don't babysit your neighbor's kitten! Beware!

    NaNoWriMo 2018

    it's hard this year. I hit a wall and decided to skip forward to some scenes I already have planned out. That helped. I may continue to do that, though I may have to rewrite them later if the characters don't want to follow my planned plot. Why is it that it always sounds right in my head, but when I put it on paper it's just different? I swear they have minds of their own those pesky people!

    How to paint scars?

    Ok, so I think of scars like I think of nicks and breaks on swords for NMM. It has to do with the way the light bounces of surfaces. I borrowed this from google. See how one side of the scar looks light and the other side darker? That's a simple way to do it. draw a dark line, blend it in on one side and then paint a thin highlight on the other side. scars are a result of fibrous tissue formation under the skin that puckers or pulls the surface down. Usually. When a surface isn't smooth, it will reflect light in a more scattered fashion. That means we don't see the dips as well and some of the edges act as a much brighter highlight as the rest of the light gets scattered away from us. The long and short of that is paint it like it has a sharp edge. I'd start by painting and highlighting the skin, then add my scar and then glaze over it with my flesh color to blend it in just a bit. remember with the eye that the scar, if it's from a blade, will travel down the top of the forehead, skip over the eye socket to some degree (though if you intend it can nick the orb of the eye,) and then it picks up on the arch of bone under the eye. So they'll be a gap with absent scar based on the anatomy of the face. Here's and example from Kirill. Scars can be painted similarly to wrinkles. Not sure if that's what you were asking, but it's how I'd approach healed scars. Fresh ones are similar but ruddier and messier. It also depends what made the scar. Was it a sharp sword? Was it torn and the skin avulsed or pulled away from the surface? Was it abraded or sanded away by a skidding injury? I'd google facial scars and just surf as long as you don't mind looking at some graphic images.

    It's a beautiful page full of words! What more do we ask? :) Yeah- I'm puttering along in mine too. I'm doing a prequel to one of my previous stories. Today haven't started writing yet on account of family and laundry, but I'm at least meeting my daily goals so far. Whooo! We can do this! Best of luck to all and if anyone new is around, feel free to friend me over on Nano!
