I love the new backgrounds!  Great atmosphere and yet with a kind of theme park feel.  Like a goblin might open a door and enter from "backstage" where lots of other critters are running around half in costume.  This is not a criticism - it's part of a distinctive feel that your creations have that there's always more to the world than at first appears.

 

I was worried at first that these mushrooms were lacking eyes.  Good to see that a variety of eyes are appearing.  There are probably others I can't see and those are the ones to worry about.

Thanks for the reply, Thumb. I like that idea. I can picture a chaotic scene a la The Muppet Show (the original one) with the cast & crew running madly about just behind the scenery.

Some of the eyes will probably just be glowing eyes in the gloom, but some will have disembodied faces as well. I also have some new Mushrooms for the background: twisty ones with faces.

Thanks, Wolf. I am happy you are enjoying the stuff.

The two lower sets of eyes now have faces.

I have six lanky, twisted Mushrooms ready for faces. These will fill out the ground in front of the towering Mushrooms.

This is as things stand at the moment.

The first two faces in the gloom:

Making the beasty has been & is fun, but I'm looking forward to the photos of the miniatures as well.

Thanks for the reply, OneBoot. I am happy you like it...spooky faces & all.

Thanks, Wolf. The faces didn't quite fit what I was trying for; SO I carefully removed them. They will show up again elsewhere.

SO after a couple of days of down time, I managed to build up some motivation.

The background & middle ground Mushrooms are all primed & ready for some pre-planting paint:

...a Mushroom was added to the background:

...the Flying Fey Faerie Wizard got based & base coated:

...AND I found this spooky looking, hitherto unphotographed West Wind Goblin Guy lurking in on my display cases...I was rotating the minis in & out.

I did some touch ups, a touch here & there with gloss finish, & a couple of pics sans the background. I'm not sure how he will fit in, but he is a cool little Guy:

...more to come depending on how motivated I feel.

Good work on the shrooms and the flying wizard.

 

That Goblin will fit in somehow..he looks eager enough to earn a place among the madness.

 

Keep it up Al!

I love your world.
