It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
in front of a window with direct sunlight. So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
from Portland. I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
So here are four photos:
Please let me know what you think.
I have actually been painting, sadly I'm no longer as fast as I used to be. I just wanted to post a photo of two Tom Meirer Elf's
that I am currently painting. I have gotten a bit ambitious as to the guards, and also the basing project. So when it is done, I will
post in the show off Forum. I have gotten rather fond of the plastic vise grippers to hold the miniatures.
After ALL this Time I am going to Post a WIP ???
Well, I broke all my rules about painting a miniature with this one.
I designed the BASE FIRST (do that last Normally).
Attached the figure to the base, its glued and pinned (becoming a nut-job really).
So now I have to paint this puppy on its base, and I have NO CLUE as to what it is.
Two eyes, claws, lots of mouth, furry, and VERY Little. Might be smaller than my dwarf that I posted.
I believe it is.
So I'll try to post photos as I go about this. Maybe I'll learn something, maybe not.
Here is the start of the little Woolly creature on his base made from a piece of 1000 year old oak bark,
taken from the area where the crotch of a limb might have been.
Toss a comment in if you feel like it.
I started out this miniature without a clue as to what I was going to do with it.
I had NO idea what it was, and so the first thing I did was create a WIP to get some guidance as I progressed
through painting the mini. I was absolutely clueless.
In a short time of working on it, the Meier touch came through and the pure humor, and skill of Tom was
guiding my hands (if not my chuckles). Ideas came along with encouragement of our friends on the Forum.
So rather than keep filling an already full bucket, here is my painted interpretation of Tom Meiers "LITTLE WOOLLY".
Your comments, and opinions are greatly appreciated.
You can find the WIP in the Works in Progress session.
The base is made from a very old piece of Oak Bark.
