  1. Sorry, I had to get punny with the title. This is DSM's Musk Ox Warrior. I will admit, I got a bit tired of him towards the end. The thickness of the fur is such that even 95% done I was finding nooks and crannies that had no paint applied to them. Michael Proctor did DSM's gallery version. For one, I wanted the figure to still look like a musk ox, so we are pretty similar in that respect. And the colors we chose are similar although not the same. I deliberately did some things different as to not copy Mr. Proctor's excellent beast. Nonetheless, his freehand on the purse and the loincloth served as an inspiration for mine. When I did the rainbow fairy I was asked if I was going to line the intersection of colors on her skirt. I didn't, but for three reasons: I liked how it was without lining, I'd already planned it without lining, and I was worried about fudging up the good work if I tried. For the musk ox's freehand parts though, I tried, but I cheated at it a bit. I painted the outline color first, then painted the main color inside the "liner". Also: @Doug Sundseth, I am bringing my camera next paint-meet-up to pick your brain on getting my settings right. My depth of field is suffering on photography. As always, C&C, rip it to shreds. Inform me of my failures. I also accept praise in the form of (literal or figurative) cookies.
  2. For your consideration, I offer you the Frost Giant King from the Bones 3 Kickstarter. He is the pair to the Frost Giant Queen and I am not disappointed in the sculpt. This miniature (bigature?) is packed with details and a metric-ton of space to paint and practice textures. The level of detail for Bones miniatures continues to impress me. The King and Queen were both primed with Krylon and sealed with Dull Cote and neither exhibits tackiness. The bits that stick out - like the butt of the spear - did rub off when I handled it during painting. I really had to work my way from the inside out to paint this big guy. The fur textures on the fur cape was an enjoyable ride. I look forward to seeing what others do with this team of Giants, and I'm eyeballing the release schedule for the Frost Giant Guards. I recommend purchasing the Royalty as soon as they are available. Gratitude for all who participated in the WiP thread. Your enthusiasm kept me going. #respect #gratitude I hope you enjoy. :)
  3. Update on the Frost Giant King. Cheers to the recommendation on Bases to replace the GW base! I have a slew of baes now for my projects. Plus this base is so much better. I hope to add more embellishment like rocks to match the Queen after I get this chap sorted. So many smooth surfaces asking for textures. Leather texture after the inner cloak is done. The spear shaft wood.grain has to wait until the end as the butt of the spear continues to be worn off during painting. The sword will be a session work in-and-of itself. Enjoy!
  4. Here it is: the dreaded Demogorgon... This was the first larger scale mini I painted. It was a lot of fun, especially watching it come alive with a wash on the furry and scaley bits. Enjoy! As always, tips and suggestions are welcome. :) -E.E.
  5. I have no clue where I got this guy, but I envisioned him silently watching over a windswept field somewhere, which caused me to go kind of crazy with the flock. :-) Does anyone recognize this mini?
  6. Presenting a full set (plus pin-up) of Lion Armour wearing Survivors from the Kingdom Death: Monster game, there's a small WIP of them here. I kept the painting on them very, very simple as I'm not one of life's natural batch painters, plus I'm a bit so-so on the minis themselves (personally I would've preferred a set of nice monopose ones to represent each armour style rather than these very manikin-like multipose kits). But seeing them in a group like this, they don't look that bad. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  7. Finished up the Vourgha the Ogre late last night, and based him this afternoon. So here he is! Pic's Some close ups of his face: This was the 1st time I tried '5 O'Clock shadow' on a figure, and I thought it came out well... At least 1 of the close ups seems to be in focus Comments Welcome! 8) George Of to Irrisen in Golarion now for a few hours...
  8. Hi !!!! A really quick and easy model. I'm not a big fan of Avatar of War... Poor assembly, many bug... But this model is cool.
  9. Hey all! Been working on and off on this guy, he won't make the August cut, but... I recently got new brushes, and am learning to wet blend and layer so he is a transition figure... The furs, hair and boots were worked on in my old paint, wash, high light style, now I guess that will end up forming the base coat for my new learning works in wet blending, layering, use of a wet palette and all these other new tips and tricks... His skin is GW Tanned flesh, Layered up with GW Dwarf Flesh. His eyes were done with the 'Bette Davis' eyes tutorial from 'The Craft' section. Just a couple pics for comments: Thanks! 8) George
  10. Another set of minis painted as a learning session for the girlfriend. Basing isn't done.:
  11. For the last 3-4/4 for the Feb RP Challenge, 2x of the Orc Marauder as seen in the LTPK. Somethin' feels a little off in the finished product but I can't tack down just what yet Better pics will likely come when I get time to setup/use my lightbox.
  12. As my first project after doing LTPK #1, I decided to try my hand at the Gnoll Warrior. I figured the armor+fur techniques I've learned so far would apply well. However, I thought I'd try to do something a little different with the fur color. Here's the pics, more info after: I'm pretty happy with the mace and shield at this point (True Silver + wash of Black Ink for the metal, Intense Brown + wash with Walnut Brown for wood on the shield). The fur, on the other hand, I'm not so sure about. The idea was to make this a "frost gnoll" or something like that by getting some sort of icy or arctic looking fur. What you see in the picture is the result of a base coat of Sapphire Blue, followed by a wash of Pure White, and finally another wash of extremely diluted Sapphire Blue. I'm having a really hard time deciding if I want to do the same with the rest of his fur, or paint over that with something completely different. Part of my problem is that I'm working with a pretty limited selection of colors while I wait for my Kickstarter bones and paint sets. I've got the colors from LTPK #1, plus a shiny purple and a Mint Green. I'm wondering if it would be possible to achieve a sandy brown tone for the fur, akin to a hyena or desert fox, using only the Tanned Skin, Intense Brown, and Pure White I've got on hand, or if I'm just S.O.L until I obtain some yellow paint. Anyway, what do you guys think? Any other suggestions for color choices and techniques on this mini?
