  1. That's lovely. Nothing like an orange cat for getting in to trouble. I can't imagine that adding wings would improve the situation. 🙂
  2. I've had really good luck with the Reaper Pathfinder metallics. There's a good color selection and they're extremely shiny. Play with the undercoat color and blend by "thinning" them with brush on sealer (that's from One Boots Reapercon classes) and you can make some lovely TMM bits.
  3. Thanks! A lot of catoblepas art has them lazing about in swamp water and covered in plants and I wanted to capture that.
  4. Be my guest. I came up with that after someone posted a gorgeous example of the Mandupar Pass temple and I stole most of those ideas. I'll suggest thinning the glue with water and dipping the thread in it completely. Apply with tweezers, then sprinkle the leaves. Works like a charm.
  5. Thanks. I was very pleased with those eyes. Retro emerald and maggot white in various proportions.
  6. Finished up the catoblepas from Bones V. These creatures have always had a strangely important place in my heart. Probably has something to do with living in swamps and being about the right level to challenge players around when I send them there. I took advantage of the fact that no two pieces of artwork can quite agree on what color they are. I went with a shadowy blue since I figure they tend to hunt in shadowy wetlands (a friend of mine points out that some alligators come in a similar color scheme, so nature backs me up on that). I used some green thread, white gl
  7. It needed the embellishment. I really think he could use a bandana, but I don't have the sculpting chops for that.
  8. This gnoll pirate came in the Reapercon bundle and he was lots of fun. Another Julie Guthrie sculpt and he has a lot of character. The pants were the most interesting bit to paint. I got a lot of shading done for free when I striped on the black in preparation for the the red, and that was handy since I didn't have to get in to the deep crannies again. Looking at him finished I think I should have pushed the highlights on the short hair a lot harder. Probably a lot of other tricks I missed, but that's art for you. That said, I'm really pleased with how he came out.
  9. Finished this character today. The model is Captain Blackscale, sculpted by Julie Guthrie (I always love her work) and it came in the Reapercon 2021 bundle. I painted him as Captain Skullface, the Venom Draconian ship captain from _Price of Courage_, the third book in the Dragonlance Age of Mortals adventure path (how's that for obscure and specific?). Since Skullface has wings I had to add a pair with a dremel and greenstuff. I went with classic pirate colors, a soft blue coat and brightly colored sash. I added some Celtic knots to the coat since an expensive great coa
  10. Being a demon, I imagine she could be convinced 😉. Actually, on reflection, that could make a really fun adventure seed. That box was one of my must haves from the kickstarter. I run a lot of games with that older aesthetic.
  11. Finished my first piece from Bones 5. She was a really good chance to practice getting those really smooth color transitions, particularly starting from a lighter color (here, Reaper's amethyst purple, highlighted with sorcerous mist and sorcerous mist mixed with linen white, shaded all the way to nightshade purple). She was fun for the same reasons that my science officer from a few weeks ago was fun. She looks like she belongs either on an 80's metal album cover or a panel van. I've got another piece that could use this color scheme, whenever I get around to her.
  12. That has to do with coming of age in 2nd ed (where I recall a rule specifying that you could be surrounded by up to 6 medium opponents) and certain strategy games like Romance of the Three Kingdoms 2 that worked on a hex. It eliminates corners, that sort of thing. Further, once you get locked in to a thing the tendency is to push it as far as you can ;)
