Finally tracked down Corporea's thread on painting faces but a lot of the images are broken.  :down:  

 

I mean, it could be worse because I at least got to take her face painting class so I've got the hand-out, but I'm sure she had examples of various skin tones and I'd love to find those before I start working on my nativity project.  Should have taken pictures of her examples in class.  :down:

Apparently my review is either today or tomorrow...it's not too much to hope for a raise? (Plus earlier I expressed interest in the opening of a slightly higher position in the same dept)

Yeah... I have class regrets.  Should have written down all of the paints in one of them.  There was no handout and no response after ReaperCon to clarify my memory.  Oh well... $40 lesson in notetaking with some general guidelines on how to recreate what we did in class.  Experimentation will ensue later on with what I did write down by the end of the weekend.

I have coffee.

 

I found a slice of pizza in the back of the fridge leftover from Saturday's D&D. Gonna roll a fort save and eat it anyway :ph34r:

 

Today's webinar is on polymer chemistry in biomedical applications. They're shoving 2 speakers into an hour and a half: one on novel new polymers for tissue scaffolding, one on nanomaterials for drug delivery.

 

I am not at a thousand yet :ph34r:

I clearly have read too many comic books - my brain refuses to look at that and not see an X-Men costume...

Now I can't unsee it.

My one regret from taking classes at ReaperCon 07. I took a Robert Cruse Speedpainting Class.

 

I should have taken notes. Everyone can tell how well that took. :rolleyes:

  Have you PM'd her to let her know? If you ask nicely I'm sure she'd repost them.

   If it's in the fridge, it's generally good for a full week after purchase, a week and a half if it's securely wrapped.

Leftover pizza left out on the kitchen counter is good for at least four days.

 

I have performed multiple scientific studies on the subject.

NOTE: YMMV. @Mad Jack has "mad" in his name not because he has anger issues. Pizza left out for four days is to be considered unsafe. The week in the fridge is acceptable, however after 3 days bacteria has started and even if no fuzzy growth or odd smell can be detected, it may be unsafe. My go-to method is that Day Three is "Eat All The Leftovers" day.

Good for him!  It's not like he can't talk to us anyways.  Plus he will be able to tell KS backers what he really thinks once he's no longer the mouthpiece.

 

Good luck Bryan!

      ^^ So that's the link to the WIP thread for this guy.
       
      He did not turn out to be a fastish paint job. He turned into my experiment.
       
      I put more work into highlighting the hair than I usually do. I got his bald dome more shiny than I have for past skin tones. I've done bits of freehand before, but this is the first fabric pattern freehand I've done (turned out a bit thicker than I would have preferred, but I still like it). 
       
      First NMM for me ever. I may have been better off with a classic sword or straight line sort of thing, but ehh... this turned out okay for a first shot, I think. The axes took 3-4 hours 
       
      And for good measure, I scuffed up his boots in the "sand", and put a shadow of him on the sand. 
       
      I got my nice camera rolling, but not I am re-learning it. Got a diffused ring LED attached to it for lighting. Just a piece of gray-blue construction paper in the background. 
       
      Comments, critiques, shrieks of "what in the heck is this junk?!" all welcome!

      tl;dr:  I'm painting bunnies!! (and other critters)
       
      I'm finally wrapping up my painting projects left over from December, so I guess it is time to finally decide on some things to paint in 2017.
      One of my goals for this year is to actually play some of the games I've bought figs for.
      So far finding time to get a minis game going with the gaming group has been rather slow...been passing around the Frostgrave book since the fall, everyone seems interested, but haven't moved beyond that yet.
      So, moving on to my other potential person to play against, my wife. While she like playing games, so far she hasn't found time to read the quick start rules for CAV:SO I put on her phone last summer, and her Rach army remains unpainted.
      So perhaps something...cute and furry....
       
      Burrows and Badgers seems like a perfect fit, and I've been dying to start painting them.  I've been slowly reading through the rules (the only time I ever seem to find time to read these days is when I go to bed, but then reading rules makes me sleepy...(no Michael, it's not your writing, I have partially read CAV:SO, Counterblast, MERCS and Timewatch sitting beside the bed too  )).
      And the other night I showed her pics of all the figs from the first two kickstarters. And she seemed interested.But now the problem is she wants all my Bunnies....
      Also, all the figs are 1 piece, so we can play even before all the figs are painted (I know they won't roll as well, but it will help with learning the rules).
      And I get to paint all the awesome terrain Jo has made for B&B (and I may pull some out of the other Oathsworn boxes too).
      And as a bonus, if/when we get to playing Frostgrave, I'm making a warband out of B&B figs.
       
      So, I will dig out the figs and get a picture over the next few days, then get some figures prepped for painting.
       
      Now where to start??   Maybe rats.....I don't want to do the bunnies until I get a few under my belt...

      Hakon, Iconic Skald: 60182
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This was a commission piece and one of the fastest I've ever done. Hope you guys like it.
       

       

       
      Here is the WIP for this piece
    • By Arc 724
      60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This is another commission piece for me. The character in the Patherfinder game we are play is a Ranger who throws axes. He liked this figure so much he bought it on the spot! Said he wanted it to have a kind of coloration at Boba Fett. So I'm working from that, kind of.
       
       
       
      Edit: I sculpted the base my self. It's just a simple brick pattern.

      Hi again,
       
      still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail.  I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM.
       
      The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows.  Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
