    Trick or Treat Witch

    Ok, I got the Zenithal highlight and transparent of the dark stockings on her leg done. I am trying to leave the side of the leg that will be hit by a little of the OSL unpainted aside from the base coat.

    Oh! This autumnal color scheme is great. I feel you on starting a piece thinking you are going to do one thing and then it pivots into another direction. I am sure it will be a good thing for this figure.

    Trick or Treat Witch

    Good Evening! SO after sorting through my minis and cleaning up my workstation post reaper con, I felt inspired to tackle some techniques that I have been avoiding. I wanted to pick a mini that i felt I could paint quickly (but lessbehonest, I don't paint quickly at all) and that would be a good candidate for two techniques that I am trying to learn. after a long drawn out process of hemming and hawing I found a miniature that I received an unmentionable number of years ago from reaper as a prize for buying miniatures during October. So it is Krissy the modern witch with out her familiar. I have an idea of what I want to do, I want to keep the miniature a tight focus on OSL and Transparent fabric. If I am feeling like it after I have completed the mini, I may do a special base for her. I feel pretty good about my understanding of color, but I think this is going to be a pretty good challenge. Here's what I have so far.

    Reapercon 2020: early excitement and chatter

    I got back late last night from Reapercon after a 16 hour drive from Texas to Chicago. I am tired, grumpy, and as of this moment a little hangry. Buuuut, I am excited to ensure my presence there for next year. I already have lots of ideas for submissions, but one things first I am going to have to practice the skills I picked up from my classes. I am also going to try to be more active on the forums so that I can also hand out a ribbon and have an idea of whose on the bingo card!

    Can you help a Gal out?

    Yep I sure do, I want to wait until I feel I am at a level of painting that can do them justice. Hangar 18 also has a line of amazing pinup resin miniatures.

    Can you help a Gal out?

    Good Afternoon fellow painters! I have a favor to ask of you. In addition to painting miniatures as a hobby, I am also a fervent retro culture enthusiast. One of my biggest passions is being a Pin-up. Now it's not all naughty bits and unmentionables, but rather modern pinup is a way for many feminine folks to express themselves. As it happens, I made it into the Online finals round of the most prestigious pinup competition in the world and it would be a dream come true to finalist on stage. I need your help however to build up the votes. Can you take a moment to vote for me "Bonnie Bailey" Below is the link and what my picture looks like on the website. The Voting works best from a computer, laptop, or tablet. Unfortunately a lot of folks have trouble voting from their phones. Any help you can give me and maybe ideas where I can share this to rack up those votes. Thank you! http://www.vivalasvegas.net/pin-up-contest/

    Too many projects?!

    I don't really work on more than one project at a time. It takes me forever to paint one miniature due to how sporadic my opportunities to paint are and how slow I work. I think adding several projects into the mix would exponentially increase the amount of time it would take. I give credit to any person who has the mental stamina to work on more than one painting project. I always fear if I put it down, I might never pick it up again. I guess the only ways I could see myself working on more than one fig at a time is if I am working on an ensemble, diorama, or just got really flipping frustrated on a project. I however do have way more minis than I know I can get to in a reasonable amount of time.
