  1. Got my da Vinci watercolor series 35 size 3 brush in today; my third one. They seem to last about a year for me. The old one will now become my base coat brush, reserving the new one for details.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Six inches or so in the Detroit area. Barely enough to count as "snowed".

    Catfolk feet?

    Having cared for (house) cats for a few decades I can say that when a cat is getting ready to jump or brace itself, the hind feet will be splayed like that. Combined with the facial expression they look very aggressive. But I can see why it doesn't look right; the lack of texture on the fur doesn't help.
  13. Typical medieval village would be mostly croft and toft homes (small house with a yard for livestock and a vegetable garden out back), a church and associated church yard, a mill and a smithy. The local drinking spot might be an inn or the home of a older woman or couple that brews their own ale (hence the term "public" house or "pub".) Some villages included the manor house owned by the lord of the manor. He and his family may or may not live there, but it is where most of the official business of the village takes place.

    Announcing Reaper Bones Black!

    There's a post on FB of one of the new Owlbears with an ear and a finger snapped off. Looks like BB is not as durable as regular Bones. Still better than metal, or resin.

    I used to work in plastic molding in the automotive industry. The recycled portion of the plastic raw material is usually limited to 10% of the mix, and it has to come from a trustworthy source. You don't want to mix types of plastic (PVC, polystyrene, poly-carbonate, etc), and you want to avoid contamination from other materials, such as oil or metal. Most of the time (where I worked) the "recycled" material was from prototype runs, incomplete fills of molds or other defects from the same plant that were then reground and re-introduced to the supply stream, or from another plant owned by the same supplier. Now there are some products that can contain more recycled material; disposable plastic packaging is one such product.
