Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
15, ah what could that mean? I'll look later. Let's roll another.
seven! Good. Nicely spaced numbers. Will look it up in a minute. For the third roll... Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different... Finally!
oof! One! Critical miss. Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table. Let's see what this means:
15: mint green
7: olive green
1: fire red
huh. Whadaya know. Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
Howdy all, Dmagamus here. Sat down yesterday and painted this lovely lady up in one long sitting. If you'll allow me a moment to gush, I wrapped up a campaign last night that has spanned from level 1 to 20 and lasted nearly 3 years. I need a giant spellcaster for the final fight, and I wanted it to look pretty good, so I put a pretty fair amount of time into it. I think it came out pretty well.
Finished with my latest show and will have at least two months before I'm in another. Figured out that having a nice hobby room all to myself didn't work so well as my wife would find things for me to do so that I didn't go in there and leave her feeling alone. Moved my big painting desk back out into the living room so progress should be fine and if she leaves, she's not upset about it.
I had last stopped working on Yagun Oog well over a month ago, so I didn't want to try to jump back in on him right away. Last week saw the Hangout Mini of the Month was another ogre, Kagunk, so I ordered him and he arrived yesterday in the mailbox. After the show finished, I broke him open and began removing mold lines and smoothing things out. For a while it seemed this was going to take several days, but soon I was back in the rhythm and by the time I write this he is ready for a washing.
As you can see, he is slightly large. In fact, I had to go scrounging in the cabinets to find something I could put him on to paint him. The jeweler's vice would sort of work, but without a tab that is problematic. Nope, he is going to get a glass jar of high quality olives and a lot of white-tack. He will see brown liner or primer tomorrow! Also going to have to figure out a base for him as the large 50 cm rounds I had donated by Jasper the 2nd are not quite big enough. He may get a slice of a cedar limb, we'll see...
This is my first WIP, so please bear with me on this.
I tried to do the base coat in the style of the brown liner trick only using sepia liner instead as I don't have brown liner. However, I wasn't thinking and ended up using sepia wash...several layers of it. After a V8 moment, I then realized that the instructions were for liner not wash. A coat of sepia liner is shown below.
