How would Medusa feel if she couldn't help turning everyone she met to stone?
Julie Guthrie sculpted this Sad Medusa figure. It was a special giveaway at the Hall of Fame dinner at ReaperCon in 2015 (...or was it 2014?).
I painted the figure earlier this year, and she was my entry in the Painters category at the ReaperCon painting contest (Master Series Open).
I think it was the first resin figure I've painted.
Julie sculpted a rattle at the end of the snake tail, so I looked up the colors of diamondback rattlesnakes and took my inspiration from them.
I glazed and stippled a lot of colors into the stone areas. They kept looking too much like skin or simply too dull.
I hope the snakes are placed strategically enough to let this pic stay here....
These are the two hyenas from Jason Wiebe's 03277: Hyena Pack (2). I painted them up as spotted hyenas, as that is what they most look like. I find I am enjoying painting realistic mammals because it gives a lot of opportunity for play with a fairly limited palette. (See, for example, how I recently painted wolves and wolves and wolves, and what I learned from doing it.)
There is no WIP thread.
I have a photo book of Zimbabwe, so I played a little bit with backgrounds.
So I spotted what looked like a sweet little wolfman, unpainted but inked a little over the metal and glued to a square of wood in a comics shop some while ago and bought it and took it home and pried it off the old base and discovered it said "Grenadier 1987." Score!
Turns out it is a werejackal, coded MM93, and was first released as part of the set "Monster Manuscript Vol. XI" which also included the one Nosferatu-type vampire I didn't have in zer old days from the set of three I painted recently.
Anyhow, I cleaned it up and painted it like a black-backed jackal 'cos they look cool.
There is no WIP thread.
Also I had a picture book of Zimbabwe and decided to play a little bit with backgrounds.
This is another of Julie Guthrie's beautiful giant werewolves, part of the Warlord Koborlas faction. This is my second Warlord figure painted. It was an attempt to make a gender-ambiguous werewolf, and as such I shaved down the chest armor a bit. Full WIP here.
Aislinn may be howling or sniffing the air or fighting a giant. Looking up at any rate.
WIP thread here.
