@ub3r_n3rd sent me a gift.
A nice magnet from Las Vegas, a Bombshell Pirate Girl and a few Rackham Confrontation Minis.
Besides that ( an awesome gift already) he sent me a painted version of my avatar.
Many thanks Paul!
I love it.
It has a special place in my display cabinet ( next to George's @knarthex who had sent me a little wolf painted in the colours of my avatar a while ago)
I wanted to show it to the Forum, it deserves a Show Off.
These are a couple of the animal companion sets that I painted for one of my players (minus the spider which I have not finished yet).
I didn't want to paint the cat like a plain panther and I decided to use an ocelot as inspiration. My favorite is the little wolverine guy even though the photos make the river rocks look like pastel M&M's lol.
My usual background got ruined so I have to make do until I get a new one printed or buy a fancy one. The bear looks better in hand and I used blacks and browns in his fur so he doesn't look so flat as he does in the photos.
I am not happy with the fake snow and how it turned out. It looked really good when I put it on but not so good once the glue dried. I guess next time I will try baking soda and see how that works out. These are for gaming though so baking soda wouldn't have been the best choice probably.
Anyway, here they are! C&C welcome.

Quality: Table Top PLUS
This piece is TT+ but it also has a more of a "reach" in it than a TT+. I attempted a more elaborate freehand with the cloak - which you can see on the WIP linked at the bottom. As well as I attempted NMM for the first time. Now let me give you some context on that last sentence. I typically do TMM (True Metallic Metals) and I do them in virtually the same manner but with the added benefit (IMHO) of having actual reflection while on the table. So yes this was my first execution of NMM successfully, it is not far from my normal. All in all I think it turned out well. The green blade as well is in NMM effect. For this piece I really wanted to ascent texture which I attempted on the tunic that is laying across his legs. And other bits and bobs. The face is pretty basic which is one of the reasons I didn't do a close up of it. RBG faces from this era are pretty small and the eyes are tiny. So tiny seeing a pupil and reflection mark would be... useless in my opinion. But I would say it turned out well. More personality than I thought I was going to give it. I was B+ satisfied with the cloak. I tried doing a suggestion @Darcstaar gave me but I think I executed it "o.k". I'll try again with another model. I attempted a few new things with this piece and I like how it turned out.
Thank you all for your help and support. Would really enjoying your questions, comments and critiques on this.
WORK IN PROGRESS: RBG: RothMartyn of the DarkWold
Hey all! I've been away from the forums for a while, but I've been able to get some hobby time back into my schedule and I'm happy to be back! I'm starting out by clearing up my Shelf of Shame (as much as I can anyway), starting with Michelle here!
Edit to add: I had a pretty handy little photo setup at my old house, but haven't been able to set anything up since moving last summer... I'll see what I can do about that so you don't all have to look at my grungy thumbnail in every photo.)
