  1. 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.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'm so sorry to hear about the job loses. Its the nature of the beast while we pay all the check labor to do our expensive technical jobs. I can make my views on our job exports and education openly. Give away the education, force American engineers to teach if low tech countries (I don't care if they have "BA/BS" degrees..I consider those dubious. I will say that you can get your Bachelor's degree from an accredited college (www.ThomasEdisonStateCollege.Edu)...Challenge every course that you can pass. It can be all done online. Europe amazingly has FREE college admissions..and most grad classes are taught in ENGLISH. German, Norway, Holland, Britain all have "pass a test and you can study where every you want. Noway and Germany even will contribute to the cost. You can learn another langue very quickly. Look up overseas education, open your mind to the "maybe"..you could land up teaching/or having another whole new career. You as an American are known as an innovator, and a problem solver. Take Advantage of it. Than you little blueberry for the referral. Jay I'm so sorry to hear about the job loses.

  6. Short comment on my part about what you have done and the sewer dwellers and hunters....OMG !!! Just look at the color !!! You could teach a masters class in color application, balance, choices, and theory. I truly am without words. I just know that these are Miniature Museum Quality, and Malefactus should have his own dedicated wing. Oh so inspirational. Jay
  7. Holy Color intensity !! It is shockingly fabulous...stupendous...like DAMN!!! It is a harmony in intensity !!! Beautifully done !!!!! Jay
  8. The PERFECT ENDING TO 2018...its been a nightmare !! The 18, Wyrd's Twisted Hare is incredible. Oh.. what a wonder to behold. I have to admit...it is one of my favorites. What amazing Brilliance, and ingenuity you truly are. A Masterpiece to end the year. Hail Malefactus !!! Jay
  9. WOW WOW WOW.... I go in for surgery for one day, and come back to my computer and am Gobsmacked with these beautiful, imaginative, triple creative miracles from Malefactus' imagination. I adore the color's, the figures, the new moai is a royal gem. I love they eyes, and the color of the rock, and it is such a solid vision. You done did it again Al. Fantastic work to be proud of. I will start working on my stuff in a couple of days when Medication isn't an issue. Keep on Going. Jay

    Gratulerer Med Dagen. HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope it has been a joy filled day.
  14. Malafactus !!! I honestly don't know if you are rubbing off, or if I am developing my own sense of disfunction and bizarre thoughts. I was looking at your "Mushroom" forest and had an image of all your mushrooms standing in a circle in Horror; jaws agape, and recoiling... there in front of them is a small platter of of bite sized mushroom cheese burgers, with sliced mushrooms falling to the side of the plate, covered in yellow cheese. !!! I almost laughed myself silly thinking of that. I bow and offer my condolences to the forest inhabitants...(but I still think it is funny) Jay

    Simply magnificent. Humorous, and you just want to put it in your shirt pocket, and carry around and place near you as you go about your day. That critter is precious !!

    #03292: Almaran the Gold, Paladin

    VERY nice touch with the green. You handled that contrast and the combined shadow work extremely well. You even managed to down play that flaw in the face if it still exists. Mine drove me nuts when I did it. Beautiful and well painted piece. Congrats.
  19. Goodness Malafactus; I am sitting looking at materials about how I am going to come up with an original circular base for my sword welding gent, and I go to your site and literally flip the hell out !!! Good grief, look at that beautiful figure, its poetry in motion, lethal in its smoothness. The leaf and limbs, the carved spurs are so masterly done. You just knocked this one out of the park !! Great Job.

    Jasonator does Syrio Forel carved by Tom Meier

    Even though I have taken the week off from painting due to surgery, I got back in the saddle and groove this afternoon. It can be rather calming when it comes to miniatures. So Here is Syrio a bit advanced from where he was a while back. I kind of like where he is at now. Some finishing touches, highlighting, and then to figure out what I will make for a base. Fun stuff and it was nice having control over my brush and paints again. Here is a few samples of what I done did.
  21. I am only going to make one sentence my friend... This is so imaginative, surprising, mind bending, it raises the bar on our hobby, and points to the magnificent ability of one person to create a myriad of entertaining, evocative, and spell binding beauty. (I changed my mind)..more than one sentence. Your basing is incredible, as is your use of color. I long to use your "gone with the howling banshee winds" when it comes to your colors. I am (sadly) not made of such bold stuff. I will admire how magnificent it is, but will content myself with my controlled brush strokes of subtle colors. You are a source of amazement to me, and I suspect there is a plethora of others that are of the same opinion. Great Stuff !!! Jay
