Okay, I promise I'll finish one of these threads one day. But in the meantime I've started painting the Bones Sphinx. I've already painted up the wings, I've just got a few little things to do. I do want to thank @Pochi for the inspiration for the wings.

Did a wash on the wings to bring out the feathers a little more, need to work on the details on the "eyes" on the inside of the wings simce the was brought them down a lot more than I'd have liked it to.

Working on the highlights and shadows still but going to go ahead and do the eyes because I really don't want to mess up the face.

Elfed up the right eye trying to fix the face. Time for a break.

Slept on it and I think that the face is salvageable. But if I do too much more I will have to strip it and start over.

I think the eyes look great! They really look like the ones from hieroglyphics :)

Thanks! I accidentally painted over half of her left eye in trying to fix the rest of the face. So, I need to try to fix that before I go further.

I /think/ I've got them as even as I can. Also, now with eyebrows! Need to figure out how to smooth things out a bit so I really don't have to strip it.

I like it...but maybe make the eyeshadow either paler or brighter.  It seems to stark right now (unless you were going with a blue-back hair).

I put some eye shadow on and a little lip color. Not sure how I feel about it. Thoughts?

 

 

It's nice, although I think she might look nicer with darker lips. Like a dark reddish brown. It's subtle, but can accentuate the cat element on this specific figure. I googled for some images to kinda show what I mean. Although, if you are looking to give her a more glamorous look I think you did a nice job.

      After painting the Bonesylvanians Lon figure to look like my girlfriend's dog Erebus, I decided my dog Cadbury deserves the same treatment.
       

       
      He's wearing purple trousers because Cadbury chocolate comes in purple wrappers. I don't know why I did the belt in orange though. And please ignore the crappy job on the base.
       

       
      Here he is in real life:

      Continuing my paint up of all the bosses in the Forge of Fury, here is Kavorgh, painted up to be the Orc Wight Champion.  My first time playing with a light box to get better pictures too :)

      Whoo! I primed these all last month after ReaperCon. And then they just sat there while I finished other stuff. But now my desk is clear and I'm ready for more art!
       
      I am solidly in the "paint a solid color on the mini with a little shadow and highlight because I wanna play or sculpt" category. I also feel like I could have given my most recent sculpt a lot more love simply by not just painting her all the same shade of brown, haha!
       
      So I've gathered up my paint, a handful of bones minis, my notes from Rhonda, Derek, and Erin, and now it's time to learn how to paint skin! I'm really excited to try out different expressions, skintones, and lighting. I went ahead and primed them so if we need them for any games, they won't have blinding white clothes on. I'm not certain on all the names, but all except maybe 1 or 2 of these were from my Bones III Kickstarter order.
       

       
      I don't want to get pinged for nudity, so I gave this dryad a cute little Space Age dress in case she accidentally gets in the frame while I'm working on other pieces.
       

       
      I'm pretty pleased with it. ;)

      Friends! Here are 23 additional figures I painted in September. The results are largely for tabletop, or slightly better than tabletop quality.
       
      The Dreadmere Hunter was a free miniature at ReaperCon...I hated it but got it for my son, he loved it and his little 8-year-old heart decided that it was to be his DND ranger 
      I also painted the Barrel Mimic which Galladoria Games gave away as a new attendee this year. I painted a DGS miniature named Jhenkar (a small version of the Neverending Story dragon). I also painted two Red Box Games miniatures, Derek the Dim and Hvitarnor (first time doing a 5-o'clock shadow). Lots of experimenting with TMM and NMM. Just having fun, trying things and enjoying making progress...

      I have a Halloween themed adventure coming up, and I have been hyping how scary and gory it will be to the players. Unbeknownst to them, it will actually be a lighthearted romp featuring these Halloween themed cereal monsters!  Instead of horror and frights, the players will be solving goofy puzzles, trick-or-treating with monsters, and hopefully having a fun time!  
       
      I enjoyed painting these figs, especially the Clay Golem (77170) for Frankenberry, which was mostly an experiment in layering paints.  The Vampire (77282) as Count Chocula was most challenging, as I was limited to a brown palette. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
