  1. We run these online on Sunday afternoons from 2-5 pm Atlantic time. You can join us on both Twitch and Discord if you want to ask questions live during the classes. You can also wait until the videos roll over onto YouTube about two weeks after each session. Info on how to participate is here: https://www.hecatina.ca/painting-classes/
  2. Hey fellow Reaper Fans! Our new season of Paint-Alongs starts in a few weeks. These are designed for beginning painters to learn foundation techniques. they all feature Bones figures from Reaper Miniatures. Most of the figures were also given away free by Reaper over the last few months, so if you are a regular customer of Reaper, you probably already have all these figures! All of the figures from the last season will be at ReaperCon 2023 next weekend if you are there and want to check them out in person! Come say hi at the Artist Alley! I will be there most of the con unless I am teaching a class. You can see all of our videos from the last two seasons here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNJmbRJdl61teNdHQnOQziLM5YjojZyGb
  3. Hi, I am still trying to find a rideshare noonish to get from DFW to the convention centre. Anyone have room or looking to share?
  4. That sounds great. We can chat at breakfast and solidify the plan.
  5. Hi all, I'm arriving at DFW at 1200 on Wed 31 Aug and looking to share a ride to the convention centre. Anyone have a space available or want to ride share? @Cranky Dog I'm heading out from the Embassy Suites on Monday morning, 5 Sep, for a 1200 flight. I'd love to share a lift with you if you still have room.
  6. Finally managed to get her finished. She languished on my shelf of shame for at least a decade, partially painted. I'm pretty sure the first layer of skin tone went on her around 2010.
  7. This is a custom 3D printed figure I painted for a customer. Luz and Amity from the show "The Owl House". Features the use of Reaper MSP paints Snow Shadow, Pale Violet-Red, LED Blue, Imperial Purple, Amethyst Purple, Tanned Skin Triad, Rosy Skin Triad, and a bunch more. Stand about 20 cm tall.
  8. Esme. I just can't lie. I love chibis and I don't know why.
  9. Painted up as a "Billet", followe r of St Cuthbert for a character in Greyhawk D&D game.
  10. Love the way this is coming together. She has a great mischievous look.
  11. I love it! That is very inspiring. I have made it my wallpaper on the computer here in the studio.
  12. I really like the overall sort of ethereal look of the glow. its really enhanced by the faint glow coming out of the sleeves. I think you are on the right track. Here are some OSL hints that I hope will help. Saturate the light colour. That means repeat the application of the blue colour several times to make it really intense right around the white dot at the center of the light source. Make your shadows really dark. Make them darker again. More dark. A bit of colour theory will also help. Try painting the shadows of the cloak with a very dark orange colour. Orange is the complement of blue on the colour wheel (its opposite). That will create a contrast that helps make the blue pop more. By very dark orange I mean mix orange and black and use that in your shadows. Here is an example of what I mean. The blue here is Surf Aqua, the orange is Auburn Shadow. Light level and saturation manipulation with the camera software is not needed for the photo if you achieve a strong contrast with the paint. A uniform background behind the figure will help a lot to make your effect look better in the photo, though. Also take a close look at the top photo and identify the natural shadows (look at the base and find the shadow of the figure on the background). No extra direction lighting was added (meaning no flashlight or similar was pointed at the figure for the photograph) to increase the apparent brightness of the light source or to make the shadows appear artificially deep, but the effect is still clearly visible. Also still clearly visible when the figure is held in the hand. This is the effect of the strong contrast between light and dark paints and the colour contrast between orange and blue. This figure was from a class on OSL theory we did here in our painting studio a few months back.
  13. Thanks! I usually post my most recent stuff on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/HecatinaStudio
  14. Cool! You should come check out my painting studio the next time you roll through Halifax. I have a pretty good inventory of minis including Reaper, Dark Sword, Infinity, etc. So, if you want something other than WizKids or GW, my studio is the place to visit. There are also quite a few small local game shops carrying the standard fare of D&D type stuff. https://www.hecatina.ca/visit-our-studio/
