Any interest in a new round of trading cards?
What is an artist trading card (ATC)?
Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate. I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.
First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173). She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops. She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.
Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time. All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest? Finally just brute forced it to get her done.
Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details. But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!
Here are 2 of the pin-up babes from Wargamer LLC's kickstarter Hot & Dangerous.
First up Lagertha the Shieldmaiden. I love how her cloak turned out. Not so happy with the face, it look pretty terrible in the photos, its not so bad in hand. I need to get better at thinning my paints I think.
Rosie the Bowman (the official name). I did not like the concept art at all, but the finished sculpt turned out great. I love how she has a lot of spunk.
This is one of Reaper's older minis, Reaper 2040 Gargoyle. I painted him gray at first, but though it was kinda boring so I used a green glaze on top of the gray. Pretty happy with the effect. The white marble column is too white though, should have been more subdued. Oh well, another one done!
