Welcome!

 

This is really cool!

 

Yes, share more!  Not only will you get great advice from some great painters but we might be able to steal some of your ideas and techniques so we can all get better. ::D:  (I should post more of my work as well) 

 

If you've looked around this forum at all you know that everyone is very kind but also offer great C&C.

 

Did you use the Liquitex Iridescent medium for that?

Haha thanks so much!!  I used a couple different paints with matte medium for blending and galaxy work. For the glittery effect, I use super fine high quality glitter and "paint" it on, using different values of color, darker tones for shadowy areas, brighter for highlighted areas. I use a thinned down pva glue and brush it just where I want it and also almost using a wet blending technique with how I lay the glitter it makes it super iridescent looking!  Then sealant spray over the top to keep the glitter from moving lol 
I should definitely check out this iridescent medium though!

That's extremely interesting approach! I like this feel of "I-am-universe"-style creature (a dragon-god?).

      I keep a blog of painted miniatures with their model number - awhile back I had painted the werebat from Kickstarter#3 model #169.  Is that intended to be 77448 which appears to be missing in the current inventory?

      Thanks,

      Ending in four days - Redshirts: Adventures in Absurdity
       

       
      Sometimes the greatest adventure in space is simply surviving the orders of your captain. Redshirts brings laughs to your gaming table
       
      Sounds like fun - I am in for $10 - with no real intent of ever running the beastie.
       
      A short adventure series, covering levels 1 - 3.
       
      Mission 1: The Terrible Tacos: When Captain Ginny wakes up after a weekend bender with an intense craving for tacos, she decides to send her newly arrived recruits on their first mission. Unfortunately for the recruits, the local Taco Galaxy is under deadly new management. Mission 2: The Cheaper Cleaner: Stuck in a surveillance mission around a dying star, first officer Laisse Faire decides to save a few credits and send the PCs to pick up his dry cleaning instead of paying for delivery. He's sure the quarantine around the planet won't be a problem.  Mission 3: The Pirate Bonanza: When several important pieces of the ship's engine go missing, the PCs are sent shopping at the local space pirate flea market with a budget of $0 and the Captain expecting change back. Can the PCs get the ship back in working order or will they end up swabbing the decks of a pirate ship for the rest of their days?  
      You are the away team for an incompetent captain, on a less than stellar starship.
       
      Reminds me more of the old SF classic(?) Quark than Star Trek...

      In 1980 (ish) I got my hands on the original D&D game and played with my friends. Over the years, I fell in love with all of the books, especially the Fiend Folio. That COVER! Emmanuel's painting of the Githyanki! Man it is awesome.
      Then, In high school, I used to charge a whopping 50 bucks to hand-paint denim jacket back-panels for all of the metalheads and rockers. My favorite ones to paint, of course, were Iron Maiden's album covers. Derek Riggs' amazing paintings of Eddie blew my high school kid mind.

      One day while painting a version of KILLERS by Iron Maiden, it struck me how similar it was to the old FIEND FOLIO cover. I thought that one day it would be fun to draw up a mix of the two. 

      The original painting was done on a denim jacket, which sold at an art show, just like the old days. Since then, lots of folks have asked me to put the design onto T-Shirts, so I figured this would be a good way to get them out there!
      Boom.
      SHIRT DETAILS
      Shirt Brand and Material: This is an American Apparel T-shirt. It is black, 100 percent cotton on the sleeves and back, and soft poly on the front panel, The result is a vintage feel, super soft, medium-light weight shirt that feels great and shows bright colors. It is a slim fit, 4.4 oz., side-seamed t-shirt.
      Sizes: The shirts are available in the standard "unisex" American Apparel sizes of Small through XXL.
      Printing Method: These shirts are printed using a Dye-Sublimation process. It is an amazing process that gives photographic results while keeping the fabric incredibly soft. You have probably seen this printing method used on mousepads and game-mats. I did not want such a huge print to make the shirt feel like a plastic suit of armor, so silkscreening was not considered. The shirt printer has warned me that there may be small, white spots near the very edges of the art, in the underarms or edges. However, the sample that I ordered is perfect except when really stretched out, as you can see in the photos below.

       
      TWO WEEK PROJECT
      Spread the word! If you know anyone that would be psyched for the shirt, pass along the link. The project is just a short, two week window.
      ORDERING DETAILS
      Backerkit: As with my past projects, I will be using Backerkit as a checkout system. This is a very flexible system that allows backers to order exactly what they want and lets us communicate after the project ends.
      Ordering more than one? Multiple people have asked me how to buy more than one. This option will be available as an "add on" upon checkout within the backerkit that you receive as a backer.
      Shipping Costs: We are using USPS priority shipping. 
      Returns: These shirts will be custom printed-to-order. This means that I am not creating large quantities and selling from that stock. I will be making only the shirts that have been ordered and therefore will not be able to accept returns. Thank you for understanding.
      *Please note that this project is not affiliated with Iron Maiden, TSR, Hasbro or Wizards of the Coast.

      This is ending in 50 hours... Haven't seen it posted. There's a thread from 2015 for other tiles. I'm intrigued by the digital option.

      Surviving the World is a webcomic run by an engineering professor on the east coast. After a 10 year run of posting a web comic every day, with the exception of his cats having an emergency, he's calling the conclusion of the comic. However, he's kickstartering a book of the best comics for fans to enjoy.
