Getting back to painting, after a brief break to take care of some other things. This was my first attempt at a non-humanoid/skeleton, so I had trouble judging the proper size for the striations on the carapace (which is to say that they're generally too short and thick ), but it was fun to try doing a different material effect. As usual, more pictures and thought process at my blog: link Looking back at it now, I should've shaded more of the flat area of the red and done more to separate the body from the ground. The eyes are a bit sloppy, too, but they're so damn small that I'm amazed at how cleanly others have painted them. There's also an ugly gap between the Bones base and the actual base, though that's because I'd overestimated the strength of the bond (using just PVA and spackle) and broke it off, and then I just superglued it back in place as closely as I could without adding any more filler. On the plus side, I think the blood stains and the white "reflection" lines on the red areas both added nice touches without being overpowering or garish. C&C welcome
So my nieces are in town visiting from the east coast. The little one (6) loves painting anything, she was painting clothes pins while I was there the other day. The older one (10) loves art in general. So I thought it'd be a great thing to introduce them to minis painting. So with a little guidance they painted their first minis yesterday. 6 year old painted these: The 10 year old did these: I was really impressed by both of the girls. I left a bunch of craft paint, brushes, and some minis there so maybe they'll have done more last night. I'll find out today or later next week. It was great fun.
