  1. A little bit of progress Oct 18: NMM gold details on sword hilt & pommel, dagger sheath, and a greave. Also touched up rubbed off edges.
  2. Finished Dragonkin’s leather last week. Pretty happy with the bracers and greaves, not so much with the cuirass, but leaving it this way. Oct 10: leather finished Oct 11: NMM steel on small buckles and blades, then quick job on tan trousers Oct 17: Yesterday I did a little more work on the trousers and then did the highlighting/texturing on the inside of the cloak And that’s all caught up. Next is some more gold NMM on some small details, hopefully this evening.
  3. I took the month of September off, except for some stuff I did for ReaperCon. From the chibi class: Skin tone class: And my as-yet-unfinished Quad Color Clash:
  4. Basecoated leather armor and then worked on trying to get a suede-like texture on the bracers and greaves. This was Walnut Brown, Russet Brown, and then highlighting up by stippling with Rich Leather abs NMm Gold Highlight. Aug 31:
  5. And then the NMM-ification. This was done with the NMM gold triad and Pure White, with some glazing with Walnut Brown in the folds. 28 Aug: basecoated with NMM Gold Shadow (and touched up the pattern a bit) 30 Aug: Finished the NMM
  6. FYI - I’m posting this partly to have a record of the process, so I’ll add some commentary as I go on where I had issues, etc. I hope others find it useful or interesting, too. Aug 16: after finishing the blending and highlighting on the cloth. I’m really happy with the loincloth, but still not completely satisfied with the shading on the back. It’s a really complex surface. I’ll probably work on it a little more when I touch up at the end. Next was some freehand on the cloak. Painting over the best blended cloak I had ever painted was pretty nerve wracking! Sure enough, I screwed it up. This was supposed to just have a single horizontal line through the middle of the pattern, but I placed the line too high. So I turned a bug into a feature and added a second line below! Aug 23: initial sketch in white over walnut brown (also I need to be more careful to minimize rub-off!) Aug 27: finished up the initial pattern in white. It was tricky figuring out how to distort the pattern over a cloak sculpted this way. The cloth is sculpted to look beautiful, not to accurately represent a symmetrical piece of fabric. The right side is “too long” so I wasn’t sure exactly how to orient the pattern there. I tried to fade it to dark in the deep fold on the left.
  7. Thanks! The cloak is mostly Cailean Wine from the Pathfinder line, shaded with some black indigo I think. Highlights (next post) were with some Runic Glow added, and then it was glazed with clear magenta at the end to bring up the saturation. I've just been following Anne's instructions, so I can't take credit for any of the choices. She's a color wizard - I've learned a lot about color (and everything else!) on this project.
  8. Aug 13: skin final highlights 15 Aug: cloak and loincloth basecoat and shade
  9. I haven’t been on the forum much this year. Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord. I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers. It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job. Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements. I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started. I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing. I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon. Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work Mar 1: base GS sculpting — LONG BREAK — Aug 2: skin lined, basecoated, and shaded Aug 6: skin initial highlights
  10. I’m a little late to the party, but I’d still like to join if I can. @SGHawkins09 I’ll send you my questionnaire and hopefully you can still work me in!
  11. Thanks folks! This was a nice surprise.
  12. @ReaperAHawk Has there been any discussion about contingency plans for Reapercon related to the coronavirus pandemic? If it’s still an issue by then will the con be cancelled or is it possible it would be postponed?
  13. I’d prefer a one-step process of just buying the classes and keeping track of my schedule offline. The issue I had with the previous process is that you could add a class to your schedule that appeared to be available, but then it wasn’t available when you went to check out. It took me a while to even figure out how to check out. it wasn’t intuitive at all. Also I didn’t find it helpful at all to have my schedule in Growtix. It was awkward to find it in the system, so I just wrote it down.
  14. I booked at regular rates last year and my whole family got swag bags - well, not the dog. She sucks at painting anyway though.
  15. I wanted to get her a full regular swag bag so she can get the paints and other minis. We went last year and she had swag bag envy because there wasn’t as much stuff in the kid’s bag.
