This was made for and with my girlfriend.
She painted the princess most of it..I finished it.
This way she wanted to know what my hobby was like.
It seems she likes to look at these but painting is not her thing.
Too bad, I think she got talent.

This is my entry to the 2017 Valentine's Day Painting Contest. I call it "The Ladykiller".
It's a modified 77207: Dub Bullock, with a bouquet of flowers replacing his usual knife. It appears he's got his eye on some (un)lucky gal...
This is my first modified figure, and it was a blast.
I made the roses by glueing a 4mm x 20mm rectangle of putty to a jewelry wire at one end, then rolling it up, pinching it at the bottom. I shaped and spread the petals by poking at the coil of putty with a pin.
I cut away the mini's knife and drilled a hole through his hand and pushed the bouquet through. The bouquet wrapper was a partly hardened sheet of putty that I wrapped around a shaped filler around the flowers. That partly hardened sheet of putty also produced the ribbon for the Valentine's Day chocolate box, which was just three sheets of putty left to harden, then cut to shape and glued together.
My daughter says that I could take up the hobby of producing doll-sized food from Fimo clay, if I wanted.
The Bones version of this model has a mold line down the center of the mini's face, and so the facial features are a bit garbled. I had to trim away flash and do a bit of reconstructive surgery on his nose and chin with superglue applied with the point of a pin.
The paint job was a bit rushed, because I put off painting until the last minute, then came down with the flu on Wednesday. I pushed through the illness and painted these last three nights, and got it submitted to the contest with less than an hour to spare.
Quick tabletop job for a friend. Crappy pictures as I did not have time to get out the good stuff so my Table War case and iPad had to stand in. Coat looks off in the photos as my friend requested a shimmery coat so I did a metallic wash. In person it looks fantastic.
Finally got a real start on my first wizard destined for Frostgrave. Not thrilled with his face - I'm having a lot of trouble with eyes, shockingly - but I've decided to move on to other stuff. I might come back and try to make his face less weird later.
He's an elemental wizard, primarily fire, and I thought it'd be fun to do the hair up as if it were flames. I think it's coming out OK finally, but it's taken some tinkering.
So! Thoughts? Things I should change? Did I actually manage to do something well?
