Ol' Stern's getttin' ready to start his 2012-2013 paint season. So, I spent Saturday dusting off (literally) my paint area, getting things re-arranged and ready. Also, sat down and put together my paint schedule and took an inventory of my paints...

Snapped a quick pic before my camera's battery died.

Anyone else wanna post their paint areas? Yes, yes. I know we've done this before...

SK, almost re-ta go!

OH UH, I sense great things will come about due to this!!!

Glad to have yah back.

btw how are those new GW paints?? I seen some colors that I thought might be nice to add but about the only color of GWs I use is some mud wash color.

Might paint area is kind of in a makeshift area right now. I've set up on my windowsill. Sounds odd but with it being summer or most of the time. I get better light up there + I get the add benefit when a breeze blows through. Eventually gonna make my way back to the hobby desk (old do it yourself computer desk) when I feel like cleanin the damn thing. I think the last time it saw the light of day was a week before ReaperCon this year, ha ha.

Paint on!!

Nice setup! I wish I had a permanent set up for painting. right now I just lay plastic covering on my kitchen table to paint and then put it away whenever I need to use the table for it's real purpose.

I used to paint out of my bedroom but now with the new house I've got me own studio, so it's definitely a level up. I smile every time I walk in here no joke.

It's one of those writing desks with a display case attached. With all of the various nooks and storage spaces, I can keep all my painting stuff stored away if we're having 'non-gaming' company over to the house. Everything just folds up and stores away nice. Personally, I'd rather have a painting studio with more natural light (clears cough), but that would require me to have a wife that doesn't find a way to junk up every non-occupied room in the house. :wacko:

The good of it is that my set up is in the family room, such that I can spend time with my wife and son even if I'm engrossed in a painting project. At least, that's how my wife put it to me. I are a humble minion.

Ah yes, neat and tidy. More meaningless man-word gibberish.

This is how a goblin does it!

That's also a ceramic palette. I got it for my Birthday a couple of years back. I'll dig up the site where you can buy them direct pretty cheap. Save some for me, I need to order a couple more, they're perfect and I can't have enough of them.

Holy crap... it turns out I'm a goblin. That would be as closed to organized as I ever get.

Also, I used to have the Takhisis model! And the Red Dragon and Krynn, and the Dracoliche from the same line. I'm not sure what happened to them?
