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.

      While I still need to do his base, I finished of this pretty boy.

      Last summer Bad Squiddo Games had an eyeblink of a Kickstarter (I think it might have been one week) for a line of Gothic horror minis, called "My Last Sunrise". Annie the Dice Bag Lady specializes in realistic non-objectified female minis from manufacturers worldwide and has a pretty good sense of humor about it.
       
      These are three vampire brides from the assortment. They have a classic Hammer horror look to them. They were introduced in the Kickstarter as "Get married, they said. Best day of your life, they said."
       
      Anyhow, I figured I would paint them up. 
       
      As ever (though I don't think I have mentioned it lately), comments and critiques are most appreciated. I'm always learning and glad to hear other perspectives.
       
      Normally I prime my minis white and wash them with Burnt Umber, a rich, dark brown. But I wanted these to look more chilly so I washed them with a cold grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna. It does not enhance the details as much as the darker Umber.

       

       
      Ultramarine Blue tends to dry with a grainy texture in thin washes.  In passing, I note that this looks like a pretty good crystalline rock texture and would be a fairly fast method for painting statues.
       
      C&C welcome!

      Woah! This was a miniature that I put on a shelf for WAY to long. I'm glad to be done with him. Really enjoyed this one. And no that is not a snake at his feet it is a cable... but I realize now it looks like a snake. Oh well. I hope you guys and gals enjoy it. I tried to make the brim of his cap look reflective. it turned out alright. 
       
      The back drops are Hanger18, FYI.

      WORK-IN-PROGRESS for General Drake

      Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness.
       
      We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?”
       
      He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out.
       
      See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively.
       
      More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world.
       
      (One of them won awards.)
       
      So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout.
       
      I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough.
       
      I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters.
       
      I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.
