    Hey there! It's been a while since I've posted anything, but I still paint! Lol I recently finished up my first bust for the Miniature Monthly Masters competition. I'm really happy with her, as I was trying some new techniques as well as the new format. I hope y'all enjoy her. There are more pics and info on my blog if you're interested. I'm definitely on the bust train at this point, so there will be more to follow! We get results back on the 15th, so I'll update then. Let me know what y'all think! I'm always happy to hear c&c.

    I did lots of dots and squiggles and colors. So like, I did a 2 steps lighter and 2 steps darker of my base skintone, and then used some mahogany brown that was super thinned down to kind of shade it. I did sculpt some texture on there (somewhat unintentionally) when I tried to get her eyebrow off ... And I just kind of ran with it. Then I glazed the actual skintone over it to kind of sink it into the skin. And did it again, until I was happy with it. Hope that is informative. I have some more Wip stuff on my blog, but I hadn't really done a full WIP. If there is further interest, I can do so.

    Thank you! Hair and armor were my 2 goals on this girl. They're my next painting milemarkers. I've still got some work to do, but I'm glad it came across!

    Aard Paints: Dust Scorpions!

    Those are fantastic! I love seeing a whole platoon of something painted so well! I think the red adds a lot of visual interest.

    Maow Miniatures Monstropot

    Hey guys! I haven't stopped moving since Reapercon. This was my Paint It Pink entry, "Screening Ain't Sexy". Hope y'all like it. I enjoy things that are ridiculous, and applying fake eyelashes to a miniature monster paint pot fit the bill for me. :D C&C is always welcome!

    Growtix Issues

    We had a similar problem trying to change names on tickets. The GBO is a Computer Nerd, but we just gave up for similar reasons to many others. This is a relaxing thing for us, and at some point it isn't worth the irritation. Our specific issues were: 1. Schedule shown was not necessarily what we paid for as others mentioned. 2. Server reloads were so clunky that we missed out on several classes between putting them in the cart and paying for them. (Minutes matter in the fray!) 3. Being unable to sign up for classes at the 9 or 10pm the night before, and inability of Reaperpeeps to sign us up for classes. At some point I just gave up. I had several instructors tell me I should have just shown up, as they had empty seats. 4. The GBO didn't end up playing games because I had registered us both and he didn't have access to sign up. He didn't want to inconvenience a DM if he hadn't signed up. We will remedy this in the future by registering separately. 5. Just a note, I managed to pay for one class separately (somehow, someway I will wreck the machine), and it always showed up as a separate ticket. I could never get it to add to my schedule. I hope this is helpful. It is not meant to be a diatribe, but a concise list to help for the future. If it's Growtix again, we will persevere, but we don't have to love it. FWIW, the GBO offered to help with tech stuff.

    Oh, no. lol. A sculptor I am not. Thanks tho! I think the confusion arose because it got entered into the Open category. There was a lot going on, and a lot of confusion at the registration desk that day. But I'm glad you liked her! And thanks everyone else! There are a whole bunch of these; I may have to paint more!

    Reapercon Report

    I love the con. Every year I enjoy it a little more. My suggestions: 1. Some sort of emcee. Morning announcements or even a schedule that's projected would go a long way. 2. On that note, fix the projector. One of the best parts of getting your medal is sharing it with the whole group. Being able to put a face to an entry is super cool! And I love seeing the fun puns and names! So,yeah. 3. And I agree with the current consensus of moving awards up a bit. I would hate for the majority of people to not get their medals in front of all their friends. 4. Growtix defeated me, and the reaperpeeps at the desk weren't able to sign us up for classes. When I talked to some of the instructors later, they said they ended up having open spots that could have been filled. Having the desk at least be able to manually add people to classes would be nice. Overall, I loved the venue, I love the peeps, and we'll be back!

    I got a great deal on an airbrush, compressor, and full paint set on year. Definitely worth getting at con.

    Impact chibi raptor

    I completely understand about dinosaurs usually... I like to leave them to the Spielberg's of the world. However, this guy was too cute for me! Also, I thought of you when I sculpted some of those mushrooms!!! :D I usually agree!! This little guy is my absolute favorite chibi I've ever seen. When I saw him, I knew I had to have him! Thanks so much everyone! I'm so glad y'all like him as much as I do! :D He'll be at Reapercon if anyone wants to see him up close!
