Seems like there's a bit of a painting Renaissance occuring on the boards; I've also been back to the brush after a long time away...

:huh:

 

is that some kind of new technique?

Yes.

I'll explain it to you later.

Oh okay!

 

*guzzles more coffee while at his paint desk*

 

Hmm, decisions decisions... I should go ahead and finish these three TT+ figures that are sitting here. They aren't too far from being done and then I can work on another project or two today... I really need to clear up the shelf of shame that's been accumulating!

Sounds like a plan.

 

One of the side effects of me traveling and being away from home every week is that I'm building up quite a stock of unfinished figures.

(I've got about 15 or so that are done except for basing, and probably that many again that are about 75% finished)

I slept in.

 

Normally I'm up around noon but it's almost 2pm now and I'm just getting coffee.

 

Because not everyone works day shift.

Of course, the day that I am determined to spend mostly crunching through homework is the day my brain decides all it wants to do is PAINT.

 

And I'm like "Dude, you've had your chance the past two weeks and not a peep. Too bad, you're gonna have to wait until later."

 

At which point I know I'm no longer going to be in the mood for painting. Stoopid brain. <_<

 

Huzzah!

I wrote until my partner came home from raiding and pillaging (work) at 2am. Then I wrote more because I had a scene I needed to finish.

Did you write about raiding and pillaging like a great skald? Do you plan on signing your great stories for all the lands to hear your (and your partner's) great exploits and adventures?

Raiding and pillaging ...I miss that...:down:

 

Not so long ago a Barbarian Friend and Me used to burn down Frost Giant's villages and plunder all we could find.

Then he got a job offer, and now I have to sit here and wait till he returns.

::P: 

 

[sings badly]

The city's a'sleepin'

The siren's a'wailin'

The building's secure and silent

 

But inside the doors

The deep basement floors

The people work due diligent

 

The papers, the pages

The taxes must be found

The faxes, the phone calls

Or the country runs aground

 

It's a job without respect

It's a field oft neglect

But the country needs money to run

 

Someone's got to collect

Or roads fall to neglect

Even though it's not much fun

[/sings]

 

Dunno if all raiding and pillaging deserves a song. Still, an attempt was made.

      So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:)

      Rather than clutter up the topic in sci-fi general with the details of how I'm painting these guys, I decided to start a wip thread. 
       
      The plan is to paint all the marines in the primaris half of the new warhammer 40000 starter box.
       
      So far I know the base colors I'm going with are purple armor, silver trim, blue weapons, green lenses. I haven't decided on squad markings or chapter symbol yet. This is of course not the colors of a canonical chapter, so I'm making it up as I go.
       
      I painted two test models just to make sure purple, blue, silver looked ok.

      I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness.  They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke).
       
      WIP thread here.

      My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less).
       
      There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets.
       
      These are the Bones minis 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and as a free bonus 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke), who was simply a "Vale Swordsman Elf Grunt" in metal (she was the first character picked for the one represented by Kassandra of the Blade, and I painted her up anyway as an extra and useful figure).
       
      I painted these really fast -- for me -- in two afternoons, one to prime and paint faces and one to paint the rest of them.  It's not quite my one-hour robot speed paint, but for me it was super fast and the results are more tabletop-quality than my usual run.
       
      First I washed and primed all the Bones with Reaper's Brown Liner.  I did not clean flash up as much as normal owing to the tight deadline.

       

       
      Skin work, using simple mixes of earth pigments plus white: Burnt Umber (for the darker skin tones), Burnt Sienna (for the pinker, lighter skin tones), Red Iron Oxide (for really pink skin) ,and Yellow Ochre plus Titanium White. Hair was laid in with the same palette plus Carbon Black.

       
      Rough shading with ruddy Burnt Sienna-Titanium White shadows and greyer Burnt Umber-Titanium White shadows.

       
      This character, a former Fae, has dramatic blue-streaked hair.  This is a classic mix of Phthalocyanine Blue and enough Titanium White to make it opaque.
