Getting to Know You, June 2018

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.

I dunno...a way of doing metal objects that looks decent...but not fiddly like NMM or TMM...for one. Some new ways of doing speed paint...and by speed paint I mean a whole unit in an hour, rather than one figure in an hour...for another.

Weekend is half done; it looks unlikely.

I'd like to master wet blending one day...

And get better at painting realistic faces on busts

I'm not sure about "learn", but this week I have plans to practice the stippling or cross-hatch techniques I learned from Matt DiPietro at ReaperCon last year. I just need to carve out some hours to actually do it.

I'd like to learn this mysterious Finishing technique. It's a mystical art wherein your minis move from the Shelf of Shame to the Shelf of Display. Probably not ::P:

Took the words right out of my mouth (or thumbs really as I'm on the phone).  But I actually finished a mini at paint day yesterday!  So I just need to seal it and bring it back to one of they guys I game with as it is for him.

No to just finish some stuff for me.

June 20: Do you say tomato or tomato? Are there any similar pronunciations that completely vex you......

 

Thanks, Pezler!

I blame Pexler. 

 

Plait.

Speed painting, namely being able to finish a primed fantasy mini in an hour (not including sealing) and having it look decent.  (Tabletop quality, maybe tabletop plus.)

 

I left my painting supplies at home, so I can't practice anything this weekend.

June 25: What is the first game you learned to play?

First generic game as a toddler was probably "duck, duck, goose/grey duck". 

 

First more competitive game was something like go-fish or Uno. 

 

First RPG was Star Frontiers from TSR, followed quickly by D&D.

Mori you’ve done a spectacular job with the questions! (everybody please give her a round of applause...or go like stomp some questions...or offer cookies, baked goods are hardly ever wrong)

 

I will aim to post them between 3 and 5 AM London time as she’s been doing. So, no changes there.

 

Best of luck with the moving. 

 

(PS: today’s question was suggested by  @Darkmeer )

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.

      The obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      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
      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'm going to go walk the dogs, and then post the first question of the month...

      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.
