I also would like to try out oils on minis, since my studio is currently geared up for oil painting.

 

I should probably prep and prime one to work on between 2d stuff while I have paints and brushes out.

 

You have the advantage of actually having worked with oils (and are getting some pretty remarkable results, it must be said). I have some tubes of oil paints and have read one or two articles. ::D:

 

It's hard to get up the motivation to be a nearly complete newbie again, but the kinds of translucency and blends you can get (from the available evidence, not from any experience on my part) are what I'd like to attempt.

 

For now, I've been using artists' acrylics (Golden Fluid Acrylics) to get some of the advantages of single pigments, more experience mixing toward where I want to be, and more experience with translucency. That has its own frustrations, but not quite so many all at once.

June 23 and 24: What is a mini technique or style you would like to learn? Will you be able to find time to try it this weekend?

@Hogwing mentioned a couple weeks ago that he sculpted an entire figure in one day. I had totally forgotten it was on my art-bootcamp list and was super inspired when he mentioned it! I've been packing because we're moving in ten (10!) days, so hopefully in a few weeks after we move, I can move it back up to the top of my list. :) It's definitely not happening this weekend, but it hasn't happened in this last year at all, so I'm not surprised haha.

Using Color Shifting paint. I have the Kyphrixis (clear) that I think would make an awesome crystal dragon.

That would look amazing!!! I grabbed him during the Kickstarter because I wanted to make him a nightlight. 

Guess what I still haven't started. :rolleyes:

I make my house proud....

@Wappellious has done some super awesome oil stuff if you check out his FB or his wappellious.blogspot under the "oil painting" label. :)

I'd like to try and create lighting effects. Not necessarily OSL, but also, uh... atmospheric lighting? Is that a thing? Painting a mini to look like it's in a certain environment.

Not much chance for it this weekend. It's Sunday already and I'm working til 7, I'll be lucky to get any painting done at all and I should really be focusing on just getting stuff completed.

      Huh usually I put one of these up sooner than this. Just been busy I guess.
      Who's all going?
      How did you fair in the hotel lottery?
       
       So Sunday was event registration.
      Did you get into the events you wanted?
       
      My group did fairly well at the hotel thing this year even though we had to split the group this year. both hotels are fairly close.
      I got into most of the events I wanted. had some issues with the priority system preventing me from getting into events because it conflicted with another event that I would only be going to if I hadn't gotten into an earlier time. Yet some how it did allow me to sign up for 2 Speed paints that conflicted with other events that I got into. (and I only realized one before paying)
      Also I just a bit ago remembered that I wanted to do a Frostgrave event but they are all sold out already.

      We're still going strong! Incredible. It's been a bit, so poke me if I ask a duplicate. I've missed y'all.  
       
      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      I will be posting late the night before as I won't be awake super early in the morning.

      Blame @Bathory for the thread title and unofficial goal for this month...
       
      If you're like me, you've got a bunch of unfinished projects collecting dust. Rather than start something new, why not finish something old?
       
      My goals:
      Finish stone giant and these guys

      I was at the 2018 Adepticon in Schaumburg, Illinois last month helping out at the Reaper Paint & Take tables.
       
      I took pictures of the stupendous international Crystal Brush competition entries and other minis and terrain with an eye towards the interests of the people on this forum. Also some fun cosplay and miscellaneous interest.
       
      I can't guarantee my photographs are great. I was using two cameras with very different capabilities and strengths and I am not a professional photographer. Some of the pictures use a very harsh flash because it allowed for super sharp enlargements of detail, something I thought painters here would be interested in.
       
      I didn't know which entries would win the Crystal Brush competition, and as it turns out I missed the third-place winner. I have got pictures of the first and second place winners.
       
      So to begin with, here is this year's first place entry, "Apocalypse", a diorama by Michal Pisarski.
       
       
       
      And this is the second place winner, "The Name of the Wind", a diorama by Sergio Calvo. My pictures of this are not so good, I'm afraid.
