  1. I received the most wonderful package today from JGroeling!  He really went all out, with a diorama and integrated base for this  lovely bard and her canine friend.  I just love the composition of the bricks and moss and the stones on this base, and these two adventurers will definitely be making it into my next campaign.  Beautiful painting!  This really made my day.  Thank you!!

    Skiesclear, thank so much for the amazing models! They have a place of honour on my LOTR shelf :wub:

    Sadly, his swordhand did break off, but I'm sure I can glue that back on ::):


    So sorry about the sword!  It was a hand  swap with a different model, so that was a weak point.  I should have pinned it.  I hope it's an easy fix!!  Still, it did travel a fair distance so I'm glad that's all that happened : )  Enjoy!  I had fun painting it while re-watching the entire extended cut trilogy!

    July 15: Halfway though; are you enjoying summer this year (or winter for you Aussies and other south-siders)?

    No.. spring was alright, as work kept us as unexposed as possible (essential,  but no one was traveling so we were able to work skeleton crews), but air traffic picked up (what madness possesses people to get on an airplane right now?!) and we have to work shoulder to shoulder with everyone again, sharing both close quarters and equipment. Every week it seems we have more positive cases of COVID, and add in the stress of thunder storms,  and this is the most anxious summer of my life.

    Sat-Sun, July 11-12: Any fun plans this weekend (share pics if appropriate)?


    I work until Sunday,  but during my weekend, it'll look much the same as my other days off for the last while. Amusing myself at home, with my guy, my garden,  my minis and my cats. We are on a quest to find a hiking trail that isn't stupid crowded - a unicorn hunt in Colorado.  If we go when it's 100 degrees on a non shaded trail at high noon, we might have a shot:)

    July 9: Let's Connect!  What other social media platforms do you use? 


    Feel free to leave your identities on each if you want people here to connect with you there.

    I am also Skiesclear on deviantart and the Reaper discord, and Skies_clear on twitch (and reddit, though I don't use it much).

    July 8: Have there been any events cancelled due to COVID that have filled you with a sense of relief for not having to participate/endure it?

    It's a double edged sword.. everything is cancelled (season tickets to the theater, international trips,  D&D, all of it) and the socially anxious part of me revels in the ability to just keep staying home, even though in the past, when I did get to go, I'd enjoy it once I got there.


    Now, since work is the only place I do go, any other outing puts me on the verge of panic. I'm worried that COVID is making me permanently agoraphobic.

    Really cool, I am actually painting a set of Underdark beasties at the moment, but dont yet own a hook horror.  Now I want one :lol:

    I did buy another unpainted model off of ebay this year, so I could do a comparison paint, but it was spendy. $65, not in the package. Reaper makes a great Hook Horror, aka Gloom Stalker,  44061.. much more reasonably priced!!

    • What's your favorite Dragon Name ( either from movies, books or made up by your own?)


    • Which actor portrayed/voiced a Dragon best in movies? 

     I liked the voice of Falkor in Neverending Story, but I don't know the voice actor's name. 

    • What kind of Dragon is your favorite? Colours/attitude/how their wings are attached?

    I am definitely partial to Asian styled dragons,  with their long flowing bodies and facial flourishes.

  9. Those faces are so expressive.  You captured them perfectly.  And like CorallineAlgae said, those bases really complete the look!  I love the chunky stones, .. they definitely suit the off-balanced, devious character personalities.

    Not only do you paint a wickedly good knife, wonderful highlights and good eyes, but you add eye shadow makeup?


    Yeah, definitely crushed my painting confidence for a few days..   


    Other than that, I just love it!


    For such a little lady, she had very big and beautifully sculpted facial features, especially the eyes, so that made her much easier than many minis  I've done.  Thank you so much!!
