  1. Just a quick hour-long paint, almost exclusively drybrushed, and the ground is just drybrushed with three green colors I grabbed at random. But it's painted, which is 100% progress since I finished Mashaaf. Pardon the horrible pics; I couldn't find my nice background pages. Sir Forscale, to show how little this guy is. :) Colors used (in order): Brown Liner (base coat) Powderburn Brown (fur) Shadowed Stone (fur) Concrete Grey (fur) Misty Grey (fur) Solid Black (eyes, ears, mouth, nose) Solid White (shine dots) Jungle Moss (ground) Jungle Camo (ground) Pale Lichen (ground) EDIT: This is the figure I painted for Day 1 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge.

  2. This lovely lady was a lot more fun to paint than I'd expected, and I let myself slow down a bit and really experiment with improving my shading and highlighting. I'm super happy with how her dress and apron turned out! Her face...not so much. I'll explain why below the pictures. Oh, and when I was trying to figure out what color to make her hair, even though I think brown would have looked better, I decided I couldn't resist making her a redhead. Yay pictures! I'd put the basecoat on her skin and was about to start highlighting when my right eyelid starting twitching pretty badly. It would go for awhile, then stop, then go for a bit, then stop again, etc. It seriously messed with my ability to focus on close-up work, so I decided to just make a stab at her mouth and leave the rest alone. I'm not super happy with how it turned out, but at least I didn't end up with a Joker-faced bar maid in the end (she was looking kinda scary for awhile, lol). I also didn't get a chance to reduce the lining around her eyes; it's pretty heavy right now. Once I get back to my painting desk on Sunday, I'll tidy it up, highlight her skin, and fix a few little fiddly bits (such as the rag in her pocket that I totally forgot about, and adding shine dots to her eyes). I'm actually really wishing I'd taken the time to remove the mold lines from her; I didn't originally expect her to be more than a 1-2 hour quick paint job. Lesson learned! Colors used (in order from shade to highlight): Dress and hairband: Gothic Crimson Spattered Crimson Big Top Red Apron and shirt: Ginger Cookie 1:1 Ginger Cookie:Linen White Linen White Vest and headband: Frontier Blue Soft Blue Templar Blue Hair: Auburn Shadow Carrot Top Red Highlight Orange Eyes: Brown Liner Linen White Skin: Rosy Shadow Lips: Big Top Red Gothic Crimson (between the lips) Mugs: Driftwood Brown (drink) Linen White (drink) Aged Pewter (mugs) Ground: Brown Liner Driftwood Brown Group picture! Naptime's over! Lady McGee is kind enough to bring over the beeeeeeeeest hot chocolate in the land! (you probably thought I was going to say beer, didn't you? ) Hot chocolate with whipped cream on top is one of my favorite winter treats! Peter spider isn't interested, though. This is the figure I painted for Day 10 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge. Link to index thread: http://forum.reaperm...ay-in-november/ Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. SparrowMarie posted a week or two ago how she plans to paint at least one figure every day of November, and I thought that sounded like an awesome idea! I may have to play a little catch-up because of Thanksgiving, and because I will be out of town the 4th-6th without access to painting stuffs, but I will do my best. This thread will act as an index of my Show-off threads (since Reaper has requested that separate Show-off threads be made for each figure unless it's a themed group). I may not make my goal, but at the very least, I aim to paint 20 figures this month. :) And that's actual 20, not goblin 20. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71625-oneboot-attempts-minivember-painting-a-mini-every-day-in-november/?p=1466407 I based my paint job of this little guy off of the peacock jumping spider (spoilered because spider): I'm very happy with how he turned out, even though it took me three times longer to paint him than I'd planned; painting freehand on a textured, curved surface is hard! You can see the orange strip here, though my camera is making it look more red than it actually is. Group shot! Peter spider wants to party too! Sir Forscale and Ruff the wolf don't seem real keen on this idea, though. This is the figure I painted for Day 5 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge.

  5. Today I went to Crate and Barrel! Er...I mean crates and barrels. I already had all the paints out for my table and benches, so I decided to paint up the two Bones crates and two Bones barrels I had to match, since I've decided I rather like how the table and benches turned out. Picture! Another Picture! I channeled Bob Ross while I was painting the small crate: "This little guy's leaning a bit. He's tired, he's had a hard life. So I'll give him a friend, right there. Everybody needs a friend. :)" Group photo! Which includes a currently WIP Sir Forscale, who is not fully convinced that the height of this stack of goods is within safety standards. The wolf took advantage of the distraction and happily removed the rest of the food from the table. Colors used (in order): Brown Liner (primer) Mahogany Brown (wood) Chestnut Brown (wood) Oiled Leather (wood) Leather Brown (wood) Polished Leather (cork) (P3) Pig Iron (metal bands) These are the figures I painted for Days 3-4 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge.

  6. Yay for more drybrushing, woo.... Nothing special, just a table and benches, but these little pieces were fun to paint up, and at least they look decent on the table. The benches have a tendency to tip over, though, so I may have to stick them on half a base each or something. Thank you to Talespinner for sculpting such nice deep wood grain; it made drybrushing delightful! Pictures! (I found my backgrounds, yay!) And a group shot for fun! ...I really need to paint Sir Forscale. I'll try to paint him next. :) Colors used (in order): Brown Liner (primer) Mahogany Brown Chestnut Brown Oiled Leather Leather Brown These are the figures I painted for Day 2 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge.
