WONDERFUL! It was a pleasure watching the Bold Adventurers evolve. I have developed a true love of your painting style. There is something of John Blanche to it, yet uniquely your own. Your creations are the beneficiaries of some FINE brushwork & an imaginative eye for colors. VERY WELL DONE!

I think I’ve said it before but I really like your painting style. I’ve never seen another quite the same and I think it’s cool and looks great.

Well, thank you, that's very kind!

 

I'm not sure exactly what my style is, but I don't mind if people imitate it.

I am stunned by the job on the elf ranger’s eye!  Many people struggle with getting a black dot in the white eye in the right place.  You have a dark area under the upper eyelid, only part of the iris visible and even a white reflection in the corner!  Amazing!!

Wow! They are beautiful! And speed paint you say? This is very uncanny.. Those eyes.. Wow again!

 

Thank you!  I ... really enjoy painting eyes, I guess.  Well, faces overall.

 

(I am an artist in my day job.  That probably helps.)

 

There is a WIP thread here:

This was a speed paint by my standards.  I think the whole batch was painted in about six or seven hours over two afternoons, the first day for the faces, the second for everything else.

      03157: Garwin Greywand, Wizard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.  Continuing on with practicing OSL.  I started by undershading with dark brown and purple and highlighted up to linen white on his body and base.  I did the same thing but with black and greys on his staff.
       

       
      I then added the blue for his robe, using two sets of blues.  One set has no light effect colour added.  The other set has the yellow added.  I did the shading and highlighting on the dark side with the blues that didn't have the yellow added.  I used the set with the yellow added anywhere that I thought the light was going to hit, using the undershading as a guide as to where that would be.  The yellow I mixed with the blue is also used on the orb.
       

       
      Then I added the other colours (particularly the staff and the fleshtones) using the same approach of mixing up two sets of the colours to use side by side.
       

       

       

       
      Overall I'm pleased with the way it's turning out.  A few of the values seem out of balance though.  Particularly parts of the staff compared to the adjacent areas on his robe.  Some of the flesh tones that are further away from the orb need to be darker still.  The part of the staff directly below the orb seems too bright overall, especially right beneath the orb.  Still a work in progress.

      So, I went to Origins this weekend and entered the Reaper Speed-Paint. I was only supposed to be at the con on Friday and Saturday, but I paved on Friday and won my Saturday semifinal, so I called in sick on Sunday so I could compete in the finals, where I managed to pull off a win. Friday was the scarecrow, Saturday was the hobgoblin, and Sunday they gave us the Jungle Titan. I'd already painted two of the three before, which certainly didn't hurt when it came go time.
      I didn't get a chance to get pictures in my photo studio before heading out on vacation, so these are the shots I took with my phone at the convention. 



      We had 45 minutes in round 1, 50 minutes in round 2, and a whopping 60 minutes in round 3.

      These are Reaper's 02830: Wolf Pack, sculpted by Geoff Valley. They are mounted on one-inch fender washers.
       
      I painted them for versatility, which is why there is a variety of color and base types.
