    I'm too slow. Help!

    I recommend the Speed Painting video by Thomas David. Miniature Mentor sells it. I don't follow his method all the time, but it really opened my mind on how to get things done faster.

    03584: Dar Dimplefoot, Halfling Thief

    Ha, yeah. I didn't realize he was a halfing until after I was done painting him and looked him up. He's pretty dang ugly so I thought he was supposed to be a goblin.

    02967: Alastriel, Elf Sorceress

    This was heavily inspired by James Wappel who painted the model in similar fashion.

    Tox Dragon Wizard - 02700

    Very nicely done. I've had this one in my paint queue for quite a while too because I wasn't sure what to do with that dragon. The way it plops itself right in the center of the cape confused my small mind. You did a great job with it.

    50329: Vorvorlaka, Vampire

    -For the membrane I used a base of Resurrection Flesh from Scale75 with some highlights from Harvester Flesh and Moonray Flesh, also both from Scale75. I then went over with about 4 washes of watered down Strong Tone ink from the Army Painter (this stuff is called an ink, but it works like a wash). I then went back over with some highlights in all three of the aforementioned colors. -For the fingers, I used a base of Braineater Azure from Scale75. I highlighted it with a mix of Braineater Flesh and Moonray Flesh. I washed it at the same I did the membrane and then highlighted it all again. -I used some watered down Dark Tone ink from the Army Painter for the shadows around the membrane and fingers. -I did it all with a size 6 American Painter filbert brush.

    Oops, I didn't even consider the nudity aspect until your suspect comment. Her booty is pretty shaded though so it's not that graphic. Thanks for the kind words, everyone. I was really happy with the skin tone. For those wondering, I used the following colors from the Scale75 line: "Black" as the basecoat, then I did 3-4 thin layers each starting with "Petroleum Gray" to "Graphene Gray" to "Brown Gray" and finished off with "Rainy Gray". All of these paints are part of Scale75's Black & White paint set. It took a lot of passes, but overall it didn't really take that long because the layers were so thin that they dried by the time I finished going over every spot. The hardest part was getting the right paint consistency as to not ruin the previous layers.

    Sweet, thanks. I thought it was Reaper actually but I couldn't find her anywhere.

    92761: Heroes and Villains

    This is a Bones model from the second Bones Kickstarter. I'm pretty sure he's a villain. I wasn't quite sure what was going on with this guy's head. It appears to be a skull with thin bits of flesh remaining, like Christian Bale in the Machinist, so I turned him into some kind of angry zombie.
