Wife Paints: 77265 - Drys, Dryad, 77313 - Krug, Hill Giant, 77314 - Golan, Hill Giant, 89013 - Ezren, Iconic Wizard,89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic MagusBy Laoke
While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not. She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.>
77265 - Drys, Dryad
I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle. The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : )
77313 - Krug, Hill Giant
Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure.
77314 - Golan, Hill Giant
This figure is very... uh, purple. But I think it works well. I might have to go over it and tidy up some of the tree branch club - the paint coverage isn't as good as it could be. But still a lovely bit of work.
89013 - Ezren, Iconic Wizard
She has this annoying tendancy to rattle off freehand that's better than my "paint by numbers" detail work, elf her eyes! This one was a fairly fast paint, with not as much shading as she's done elsewhere.
89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic Magus
She refers to this one as her "Michael Jackson" figure, for obvious reasons : )
I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.
I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?
I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.
The following is going to be an EXPERIMENT! Please do try this at home, because I'm not a licensed professional and totally feel no obligation to warn you away from doing awesome things.
My goal is to complete these 5 figures, from start to finish, within 48 hours. Whether I will succeed or not remains to be seen. It's more of a "Hey, let's see if I can paint humanoid figures quickly," and I work best with a deadline, artificial or not.
Here are my 5 victims:
89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue (Tipsy)
89024 Holy Vindicator (Trunk SlamChest)
77480 Durok, Dwarf Ranger (Balin)
77440 Masumi, Demon Hunter (Tsunami)
77320 Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (Elrohir)
That's totally not DDS2 in the background, I don't know what you're talking about. Pay no attention to that at all, totally not relevant.
So, I'll make this post my timestamp (12:00 PM PST), and away we go!
