That's what Bilbo Baggins hates;

So carefully, carefully, with the palettes!

Could Kit write a script (sorta like the Broccoli one) that auto-converts "are you done yet?" --to-> "...waiting patiently..."

??

He is Ma'al Drakar! Eater of brushes! Holder of smartphones! And destroyer of sanity!!!

 

He's also attempted to sabotage my challenge before it even started. I snapped my starting pic with my camera (so I could have my phone clock in the picture), and as soon as I plugged the camera into my computer so I could upload the picture, the computer stopped recognizing the mouse. Restarting it didn't have any effect. :mellow: So I had to load my camera drivers onto my husband's computer so I could get the pictures off so I could make my post!

 

And of course, as soon as I made my post and went back to my computer, the mouse was working again. Spooky. :blink:

 

But I'm showing him who's boss. I've got him laid out on the operating table (aka Lazy Susan), surgical tools (clay shapers) and greenstuff at the ready. Who's in charge now, huh? HUH?! :wow:

In that pose, he looks just like my Bishop when he's asking Ripley to stop beating up on him.

Are you leaving the heads off to paint? I was planning on assembling mine too, everything but the heads.

      I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue!
       
      Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own.
       
      Those two things resulted in this:

       

       

       

       
      I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange.
       
      I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them.
       
      And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk:

       

       
      Huzzah!
