Looking good!

 

From where you are now, it looks like you just need to stay on the rails and this thing will be easy-peasy. Nice work, and finish strong!

But, but... Off the rails is so much more fun! ::P:  I definitely get what you mean though!

I have to agree, it's a tad... nuts.  Doubly so if you wind up losing a good portion of time to surprise contractors! o_O

Second Rockstar, opened!  Tea...  Half drank, because hubby wanted tea (and therefore I did too)....  Probably should brew some more coffee, just to be certain... :ph34r:

 

I should be painting, but... Hey, stuff is drying! :P

^Yeaaaaah, my area's just a tad bit of a mess.  It'll be cleaned up after, I swear!

^Found a colour that'll hopefully give what I want for the dragon's eyes.  Yes, I'm serious....  It'll also go on that spot on the sorceress' staff that's conveniently the colour of grey liner still...  Might go for a different one on the dwarf's staff, since that still hasn't, y'know, been painted.  The orb under the anvil.

Still have a bit of washes to do, and then some drybrushing.  I suppose eyes too, since they all have BLANK VACANT STARES OF DOOM still...

At the time of taking that photo (it's now 18ish minutes later, but meh), I still had 7 hours and 3 minutes left, but....  I need to keep my sleep schedule for work since I'm back to work on Monday, and I'm calling my attempt over.  Whether it qualifies or not is naturally up to the judges, but...  I'll have the show off thread posted soon, and then it's time to get some sleep!

 

 

Start time: Oct 27 at 09:05 MST/MDT (-07:00 GMT).

End time: November 3 at 02:02 MST/MDT (-07:00 GMT).

 

I say MST and MDT because I can never remember which is which, and I've been up for a loooong time, and eyes are burning, and just want to get this post done so I can sleep! :P

Aaaaaand we have the show off thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83389-whitewulfe-attempted-the-7-day-goblin-challenge-dragons-dont-share-2014-edition-picture-heavy/

 

I am so getting sleep now.  Yes, that was an hour of editing photos, writing a bunch of words, and then making it all hopefully make sense, and not murder the phone for anyone on mobile thanks to spoiler tags for the extra details.

 

Yup, sleep sounds like an epic idea. Goodnight, and thanks for being in here with all the various comments, and encouragement!

(I'm so so so sorry I didn't post days ago, been dealing with serious life stuff (good things, just time- and energy-consuming))

 

Ten thousand congratulations for finishing your very first Goblin Challenge!!!! :bday: And you managed to retain at least some semblance of coherence, too! It seemed like you had a lot of fun with it, trying new color combinations and such, and your thread was a blast to read! ^_^

 

I'll see about rustling up some sort of Not-Trophy for you (since buglips appears to have gone AWOL). To tide you over until then, I bestow upon you:

Huzzah!

Nicely done feels good to set yourself a task as hard a this with the time constraints and complete it :winkthumbs:

 

It's definitely a tough one, that's for sure - doubly so with surprise contractors!

Real life is more important than forums, games, or stats for games.  Or Facebook ^_^  So no need to apologize for taking care of surprise real life! ^_^  (or regular real life either!)

 

I suspect I retained what I usually have regarding sanity.  I've let some of it wander here and there, some of it came back, other parts were...  Well, apparently some shiny dog thought they were a talking chewtoy, but after a beer or three the two settled their differences...  Even if it came back a lot more glittery than expected.

 

I still can't believe that in my desperation to hold onto those colours, some absolutely random thought came to mind, I went "sure why not give it a whirl", and once I had a method down that worked, it came out rather nicely.  Kind of saddened I totally forgot the orange on the other parts, but eh...  It's life!

 

I suspect buglips has been not only jumped by surprise real life, he's also dealing with a linebacker of real life, alongside a soft serve dessert made of... SURPRISE!  real life.

 

Ooooooh, the boot-stompy approval...y.! ^_^

      I say attempted because of two reasons...  First is this is the show off thread, and secondly, no official confirmation yet on the dates since @buglips*the*goblin has been occupied with other things, although a part of me suspects that @OneBoot might vouch.  At least on the times 
       
      WIP Thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83285-whitewulfe-attemps-the-seven-day-goblin-challenge-dragons-dont-share-2014-edition/
       
      This post may or may not be wordy, I haven't decided yet.  I'm tired, I'm sore, my eyes burn, but...  It. Is. DONE!  At least in my eyes.  A lot of things aren't as well done as I'd like, but that's what happens when you lose the equivalent of almost two full days to surprise contractors.  Thankfully I had terrain to work on while they took up most of that time!
       
      Rules thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69639-7-day-goblin-challenge-official-rules/
       
      Just what is the 7-Day Goblin Challenge?  Well, I summarize it as follows: Stupidly large mini, comically small brush.  Right now, it's four different minis you can choose from, you can only use up to a size 0 brush, aaaaand you have all of seven days to finish it.  That's it.  No airbrushes, no fancy paper towel tricks, no smearing paint with your fingers (as that's a "brush" that's bigger than size 0!), no direct application of paint, no aerosol cans... You get the idea. ^_^;;;

      Getting all of this to fit in my mock lighting setup was an absolute pain, doubly so since I had to steal hubby's painting light to try and get even lighting across things. o_O
       

      ^Starting setup, with time displayed
       

      ^Ending setup, with time displayed.  At this point, I technically had 7 hours and 3 minutes left in my seven days, and by the time I'm done writing this it'll probably be a full hour later (something about editing down over forty pictures, and that's AFTER I filtered redundant pics out of the equation o_O)
       
      In order to not make this an absolute pain to scroll through, I'll showcase key pictures, with additional detail pics being hidden behind spoiler tags.
       

      ^Obviously the main attraction is first.
       
      Additional dragon pictures:
       
      Terrain details:
       
       

      First hero is apparently the dwarf cleric...  At least with the order I took pics!
       
      Additional pics:
       

      ^The sorceress~
       
      Additional pics:
       

      ^The thief/rogue/sneaky one!
       
      Additional pics:
       

      The... Ranger/archer guy!
       
      Additional pics:
       

      ^And last, but not least...  Sir Purple of Shiny, as more or less named by OneBoot...  Well, inspired by due to purple and how shiny his armour was for quite some time...
       
      Additional pics!
       
       
      Now, comes the slightly... I dunno, philisophical part of it all.  Would I do things differently next time?  Most definitely.  I'd prefer to give my heroes more time, and also make sure I have brushes that I trust well enough to do eyes.  I had to pull out my 000 Reaper brush to try the eyes....  I also wouldn't wait until after 1am  in the final hours of the challenge to do said eyes either.  I'd also not recommend losing a good chunk of time to surprise contractors either, or at least keep painting as best one can - although that first day of surprise contractors, uhm....  Yeah, anything other than priming would have been impossible while they were doing work, the entire building was vibrating.
       
      Would I recommend this kind of thing to others?  Sure, why not...  If you're willing to do a reasonable amount of planning ahead of time.  I'd also strongly recommend having time off while you do this, AND not being the person who cooks.  Assigning cooking duties to someone else (or, y'know, having a freezer/fridge full of ready to make meals) would probably also be rather handy.  If you're in a relationship, or living with others (be they roommates, or parents, or whatever), DEFINITELY make sure to talk it over with them.  I'm lucky, I'm married to an enabler, and by that he's the main reason I was able to do the challenge.  That and he was quite happy to work on relic quests in FF XIV:ARR while I painted 
       
      Oh, and make sure you've actually GOT groceries to cook with if you are going to be the cook!  Don't have to run out a few times during said challenge, DOUBLY SO if you happen to have to WALK everywhere when you do said errands.  No, not even to go and get your package of big stompy robots, you silly fox!
       
       
       
      I went into this with a rather basic plan...  Colours picked out for the heroes (but apparently only their capes/cloaks), and a basic colour pattern idea on the dragon.  I'd recommend not winging it like I did, because it brings up some rather interesting (and annoying!) problems as you go, like how on earth you're going to make it work, and blend it all together.
       
      Will I give another one a shot?  We shall see.  Obviously there's recovering from this one, but most importantly is this - hubby would have to say yes again 
       
      ...I'm going to go get sleep now!

      So I'm looking at doing one of @buglips*the*goblin's seven day challenges (Dragons Don't Share - 2014 to be precise), and one of the main topics that keeps coming up is brushes, specifically ones I won't mind putting some wear and tear on, or even destroying.  For those unfamiliar with such a challenge, here's some more info...
       
      Official 7-Day Goblin Challenge Rules Thread
       
      Awww, it doesn't automatically do the thing anymore, where it does the nice and neat and tidy box of doom.
       
      Anyways.  The biggest thing I'm looking for is some brushes that will be legal (size 0 max, with a guideline of 1mm diameter, and no more than 10mm in length for the brush), since my main "scratch" and "priming" brushes are probably too big (Citadel starter brushes I happened to have lying around.  One is clearly way too big, and the other is probably too shot to be reliable for a challenge)....  And are hopefully relatively inexpensive as well as last a decent time through the rough behaviour that will more than likely be happening while I am painting such a large miniature, in such a short amount of time.
       
      Additionally, I do live in Canada, but have no problems purchasing internationally, it's just a case of us having a not as good Amazon (and the US Amazon doesn't always ship up to Canada).
       
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions or tips on durable, yet inexpensive brushes!
