Ox my god. How oxsome. Lox great. Man, it isn't getting any better ...

 

Aehem. So - A great figure. I really like it, though I am not fully decided if he reminds me more of a warrior or a baseball player. (That has nothing to do with the paint job, but the sculpt itself).

 

I really like how fitting all the colors are. (can't stop staring at him. I just love his expression)

 

Do you plan to paint more of those animals?

Love the puns!

 

And yes, I do plan to. I have about a dozen more of the DSM critter people to paint. I have requests from family for me to paint the hedgehog cavaliers riding a snail, and the cat-rogue. I think my dad wants the otter ranger. Got all of those. I think I'll end up buying the snail cartographer for my uncle at some point (he's a mollocologist - literally researches snails for a living). 

 

I'm glad the colors came together! Before putting paint on his toothy baseball bat, the boots were looking entirely too bold compared to the rest of him and I was worrying over that a bunch.

No worries. That laptop has lived through things worse than that. The only thing I am sad about is that the tea was so good.

 

How do you intend to make up for that @Glitterwolf?

@Knochensack and @Glitterwolf must now vie for the aid of The Ox. He may be bribed with hay and back scratches.

@CyradisI am already trying to bull him over to my side. I guess it's not the worst thing to have a baseball-fighter-hooligan-ox in your party.

 

Why do I just want to watch Raid 2 again?

Ok Mr. Ox,

You are going to assist me to calm @Cyradis down over that spilled tea.

 

Why? you ask?

 

Well, remember that one night in Alaska?

Let's just say I know someone who wants to have a "talk" with you about "something" you gave her...

I might be persuaded not to reveal your location..

      ^^ Link to the WIP. 
       
      My Stephanie Law Kickstarter loot pack had their first goof up! Lucky for me, they rectified the situation immediately. At any rate, I had a spare necromancer body and a spare bard arm. I decided to do my first ever conversion and connect the two! I told my friend about this, and we came up with the idea to make The Necrobard an emo-punk rock musician, with heavy influence from My Chemical Romance (specifically The Black Parade). See inspiration: 
      Instead of a summoner, we settled on a "everything hurts" idea of the stereotypical depressed musician/comedian who has very high charisma, but hides a lot of pain. And he wears a lot of black. My friend is indeed going to play this character (his initials are hiding in red in the crook of the lute). Bardic party buffing plus necro debuffing of bad guys. 
       
      I attempted to make it look like he was casting a necromancy spell by freehanding his hands to have the skeleton glowing through the gloves, and the lute glow where he holds it, and out of the center. I picked "The Punisher" character's logo for an easy skull to freehand on the back. The red stain is because the character beat his brother over the head with the lute as a backstory. I added the skull to the base for the heck of it. If you look closely at the bard-arm, it doesn't line up perfectly... but good enough for a first conversion, yeah? My epoxy was being a butt, so I settled on pins and super glue. If not for the inspiration being bleach blonde, I likely would have given him dark hair. But hey, crazy pale was an adventure to paint. As was the absurd amount of black/gray. 
       
      The photos I think are over-bright, so I will be tweaking them in the future; I think less light but longer exposure (if I can hold steady) would do wonders - better ones to come in a week or so when I can pin Doug down with my camera. 
       
      Comments, critique, musical expressions of sadness or joy - all welcome!

      Here we go again.
       
      If you don’t want to know what led to the whole “Let’s make a present”-stuff, feel free to scroll down to the first picture.
       
      I have to admit: I am not world’s best painter. To be honest – I am far away from that. I cannot remember color theory, keep forgetting important steps or read a tutorial just to throw it away ‘cause I cannot imagine how I should turn the advices into actual results. Life is hard …
      Anyway – it seems that persons in my proximity have caught attention of what I am trying to do and figure that it is actually *good* and from time to time ask me to do some presents.
      And that’s what I am doing for them. Presents.
      Often those presents have got something to do with my boss. She is the driving force behind this whole “You do wargaming! You can paint! You make present! Ugh!“—stuff.
      A specialty of her is to ask me to think of something and prepare something just to then remember me that I have got like 5 days left until the specific gift is needed. Thank you, ma’am!
      And – oh, yeah – there has to be an owl in it. She loves owls and she wants everyone to know.
      Therefore a typical process of creation  looks like this:
       
      1st. Not much time left
      2nd Owls are needed
      3rd No owls available
      4th panic rises
      5th awkward moments are happening
      6th The badly needed inspiration comes to mind
      7th realization of lacking skill follows badly needed inspiration
      8th panic rises further
      9th Finally! Owls are available! Construction may begin.
       
       
      So – Let’s make a present.
       
      The following present was the very first “big” present I made. I want to run you through the process of creation as it was a lot of fun for me to improvise and think of that whole stuff, and I think it would be a shame not to share it.
      The present was for a colleague who left us. Normally she would have gotten some kind of standard present from our workplace, but she didn’t want to. She had bad experiences regarding standard presents, so my boss was a bit unhappy. She didn’t want to let our colleague leave without anything in her hands.
      Normally my boss would have done something on her own. She is a good painter - I guess like Bob Ross (just different hair style … and not so many little happy accidents). But she didn’t have got time, so I stepped in.
      I had Five days left, and of those five days I was away for two days – not much time to come up with something.
       
      So when I came home from work first thing I had to do was checking the materials available.
      My boss wanted the present to be an owl. Well … as I don’t care about owls (only time I do is when they start screaming at night and keep me awake), I didn’t have got any owl miniatures.
      And then there was the question of what kind of present I wanted to make.
      I thought of a diorama, went through some stores in my area, didn’t find any helpful inspiration, and after a few hours of searching the Internet, I finally found what I was looking for: an owl mage.
      And that triggered a thought on the meaning of the present.
      Our colleague had been forced to make some hard decisions beforehand, which did not only have an impact on her work but also personal life, and my idea was to give her some kind of advisor to lead her through the upcoming time of her life.
      I figured this idea to be on one hand quite good and on the other hand to be somehow hilarious, so the idea was settled.
       
      Next thing I needed was a showcase.
      Luckily enough I had some miniature tanks which showcases I didn’t need. One of them seemed to fit the figure and leave enough space to create a small scene around it.
      Hm.
      I only had an overall idea on the topic by that time, but finally the whole concept rushed into my mind.
      Why not make a path, where the owl mage has a decision to make? The decision might be easy – go left or go right? Both paths will lead out of the diorama and therefore he cannot see what awaits him. He asks his crystal ball for advice but that doesn’t provide the answer and so the mage has to decide himself which way he wants to take.
      So I bought the owl mage and went on my two-day-trip. When I came back, the mage had already arrived. Time for me to start.
       
      First things first – I had to take the dioramas measurements and to make a plan …
       

       

       
      Then I did a first test fitting of all the elements I had thought of and made a plan, just to ignore it and continue with a second test, in which the owl mage was put together with a tree which I took from my forest box to create an outline I wouldn’t be able to read later on and started.
       

       

       
       
      A main element of the diorama would be the path. Therefore I had to carefully outline how I wanted to create it, especially as the parting of the ways should be clearly visible.
       

       
       
      After that was done and put away to dry, the next thing to do was the road sign.
      Checking my materials box, I found some balsa wood and plastic styrene. Using a scalpel, a rough file and some glue, those two elements became one to make a great road sign.
       

       

       
      Then I had to let it dry. Next thing to do was painting the owl – but that is a different story for the next post …

      And here we are - after 36 hours of building time and another 18 hours of drying, the owl mage is finally done. Check here for the WIP Thread ->Let's Make a Present! Owl Mage<-
