    Summoning A Dragon bust

    Thank you! I've been debating if I should hit it with sealer or not. My plan always was to seal it eventually, so I don't even know why I was hesitating. After two days of working on it, this is where I am with the fire: I can't tell if it looks right or not. All I know is that painting fire at this scale is not my favorite thing Any input on this would be greatly appreciated, because I think I've been staring at it too long.

    First Bones 4 painted figure

    Sure! I use two different kinds: Greenstuffworld's colourshift paints and Golden's interference paints. The Golden paints are more intense on the shine brushed on, and Greenstuffworld's paints are thinner but get more of a color shift. I think I mainly used the GSW paints for the slime

    I finished the hair, gave her some freckles, and cleaned up a couple areas that had been bugging me. That hair was not easy to work with. The thin grooved texture was too thin to handle a paint brush well without getting paint onto the high areas, but whenever I tried to put paint on the high areas it would fall into the grooves and make a mess. Finally I highlighted and shadowed everything without worrying about the details, and then coated everything with inks to bring out the texture. I used Vallejo sepia ink in the shadows and then covered everything with Vallejo flesh wash. I like how it turned out, though I wish it hadn't made those shadows as shiny as they are. I also started work on the flames: Right now I'm playing around with the shapes and trying to figure out where my colors should go. I'm liking these colors overall, though I do intend to make the "highlights" brighter and the "shadows" darker

    Reaper Bones 4 Containers

    Nice job on the graffiti!
  8. Mine arrived. I got two resin figures and one metal. The one resin figure and the metal one were great, but my corrupted nereid witch has some pretty thin spots, and one of her horns arrived broken off. Since the horns weren't necessary to me I just snapped off the other one, but I'm a little worried about how her dainty fingers are going to fare. She just might end up being a display piece

    My youngest brother is painting a mini right now. When I started out he painted one with me and promptly lost interest, so I'm very excited to see him getting back into it... But I'm trying not to show it too much lest I frighten the teenager away with my enthusiasm

    Aw I really like him. You took good care getting all those little details in there and his eyes look adorable and huge. Great job!

    Minis we would like to see

    Dragons with non traditional hoards For example, a dragon that hoards pets, a dragon that hoards toys, something like DSM's book wyrm, an art supply hoard, various holiday themed hoards, etc
  12. I was searching eBay on my quest to find the Stonehaven Troll Mage and found a lot of their giants and trolls for $80 At least half of them are going to be given away or sold again, but I couldn't resist the deal for the ones I did want
  13. My collection is getting pretty diverse as far as sculptors go, but I've noticed I tend to gravitate toward Bobby Jackson (he's probably sculpted close to a quarter of the minis I own), Kev White, Werner Klocke, and Patrick Keith

    Summoning A Dragon bust

    Oh my, you're making me feel a lot better about the amount of time I have left! I keep feeling like there's no way I'll be able to finish everything on time. I have this bust and another figure (Bombshell Minis' Mythga, who I should probably make a WIP for as well) both about halfway done. I might be a bit further on Mythga but I kind of got absorbed by this bust so I will likely finish it first. Then I have two more I would *like* to do, but we'll see if I can get to them I've also decided that when I finish each piece I need to stow them away and not look at them until the moment I'm entering them at Reapercon, because knowing myself I will try to fix every little thing and stress myself out

    My friends and I have a running joke about using "best wishes" to tell someone to elf off without them knowing it, that started after a teacher sent a rude email about someone's grades and signed it that way. I almost never use it, but it has come in handy as a coping mechanism while working customer service
