Awesome to see you painting again!

 

I like this piece, it tells a story.

The Elves are bound by oath to defend the tomb.

It shall not be disturbed!

Thanks Glitter.

I used that 1000 year old oak bark to make the base.

I wanted that rugged and desolate look except for the area

around the well tended grave.  Like Uber_Nerd seems we have all

captured the basing fever.  I think I spend as much or more time on a

base than I do painting the figure these days.

Thank you for your comment !

Great all over, and those shields are looking glorious. 

Thousand-year oak is particularly elf-appropriate!

Thanks Rigel;

The funny part is that the bark is probably Older than 1000 years.  It would be around 18 feet circumference to that tree. 

So my 1000 years is probably very conservative.  It was felled by an ice storm, and I went bananas tearing off the bark

once I could get to the tree.  I have two large boxes of the stuff to work with.

Glad you like the shields.

The whole project was one challenge after another, and that makes me really happy.

I want to continue learning, and the only way it works, is to be challenged.

Thanks again.

Beautiful piece - well set on the base. Really like the cloaks

Than you Iridil  !!!

I've gotten into basing a great deal.

I sometimes spend more time basing then I do painting.

You REALLY get hooked in that area.

Thank you for the cloak comment.

Nice work and a very cool base. 

Thanks KruleBear !

Any praise from you is high praise indeed.

I am now getting back into our world once more.

I am thinking of teaching some basics at Game Stores In Portland, OR.

Now that I have been here for 45 day's-ish.

Seems there is some demand, and being retired, it would be great being around

folks that share our obsession. !!!

Thank you for your like PatrickStrom.

I've been away for a while, didn't know if anyone would recognize, or remember me.

Thank you so much for that vote.

Thank you my friends for taking the time to look at what I have done.

I have forgotten how fast things move in the Show off Category.

There was a time when folks got a chance to look at things, like basing, and painting.

I consider this one of my finer works, and in such a short time it went to page three, never

to be looked at again. 

Amazing though, there is so much to learn from each other.

Keep on sloughing away!!!

I'll be looking at this forum to cheer you on.

 Exactly why I have mentioned a few times to search in Show Off for your favorite mini/race/monster.

There is so much to see, so many gems are already on this forum.

Some even painted years ago.

 

There are some pleasant hours where I just type "Dino" in the search or "Vampire" and I look at all the older show offs.

So many good stuff.

 

Also, some forumites have done this before, and I have now also done it the last few years.

I keep a file which minis I have painted in a year.

Then when  the new year arrives, somewhere in January I post a : What I painted last year.

A list with links and or pics from all I did the year before.

 

That way I'm viewing my progress and I give people one more chance to look at my stuff before it fades out of memory again.

 

DO browse this forum more people!

So much good stuff here!

@Jasonatoranother thing:

You can show a link in your signature to show off your latest work.

I have that as well.

 

One link for my latest work.

Two for my ongoing Projects ( although I do have more projects)

And one with an index link to all my work compiled in one thread.

 

That way people can see what you have done last, and maybe they will click it to see it if they have missed it before.

Thank you glitter !!!!!!

Amazing the changes that can take place when you are away for a while.

I also will start pushing that our newer members start looking at the "archives" in this section.

There are so MANY Amazing pieces that folks have done buried and waiting in this old dusty forum.

I have learned so much from you, and ub3r, Cash, and so many more spectacular painters and basing types.

This forum is like a living historical compendium of great works.

Thanks for your help and ideas.

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      Since I have moved to Portland, I have FINALLY gotten my painting desk, and miniatures set up in front of a window.
      I've started working on them.  My plan is to set up a royal tomb using 1000 year old oak tree bark, and two Tom Meirer
      elven guards.  This is what I have done so far.  I may have to build the tomb higher, and the placement of the guards is
      just to get them in the picture.  Work in Progress.  So this is my new beginning on the West Coast.

      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.
