    Mostly Harmless
  1. All done! Thank you for the suggestions and encouragement everyone. Now on to the rest of my April RCL entries...
  2. Alright, the crystals aren’t great, but I’m starting to fail my dexterity checks. I tried to put scratches in some of the crystals. Note to self: don’t line them with black to add depth like I did in metal. It looks weird with the edge highlights. I AM happy that I finally pained a reflection dot in a mini’s eye, however! Apparently I can do it if the model is 3” tall! :)
  3. Thank you for pulling all of this together! I’ll report back on my eventual success. Thanks for the class pdf link! That is exactly what I was looking for. We will see how many of the colors I get through before deciding to whittle the list down :)
  4. Continuing to work, but I am kind of dreading painting all of these crystals. They will either come out fantastic, or I will just drybrush them all to oblivion. Did anyone take the RVE crystal painting class? Any tips or tricks on making them look spiffy? some of the initial pastel colors.. Then I tried to apply a dark purple wash to catch the nooks and crannies before blending the individual faces. That is the part I’m not sure about- do the darks/lights follow different rules for translucent things?
  5. I used a toothbrush method. I wish I had more variation in the fleck size, but you can’t argue with the speed!
  6. So a friend and I are doing the Rock Troll for this month’s duo RCL. I looked to some spiffy planetary science stuff for my inspiration. Chondrules are these tiny colorful mineral inclusions found in some meteorites that help give a picture of what the early solar system looked like. Here is an figure from an academic paper with some colorful pictures of them: https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Olivine-and-pyroxene-rich-chondrules-a-Barred-olivine-chondrule-PPL-olivine-light_fig1_234271218 Anyways, I thought maybe I could try a Meteorite Rock Troll. After painting skin for five ni
  7. Phew! Next time I need to pick fewer colors to work with. Lots of fun, but ohmygoodness the palette is a mess!
  8. Another few hours spent fixing hair, skin, shading leather bag. It is amazing how smooth things look to your eyes until you take a photo. I’ll need to clean this up!
  9. Thanks! First time for me really shifting the hue of the shadows so far away from the base coat, so I really appreciate the encouraging words.
  10. Got a bit further today. Still happy with how it is coming together, though the hair and skin are still rough and not quite the right color that I want. Progress!
  11. This is such a great model! Obviously plenty more to paint. It took me about two hours to just get the skirt to look right - she might end up in the April RCL rather than March at this rate :)
  12. Thanks for the tip! I’m glad someone made a line of those characters.
  13. That is beautiful! Really pulled off a fey atmosphere with the colors.
  14. Had a lot of fun continuing this model after an RVE class! Thanks to @R2ED, @Samedi, and @Highlander for feedback in the tips & tricks section. I have to say, though, that for all of the wizard characters with dynamic poses, I can't find a good Rincewind, Dean, Senior Wrangler, Bursar, or Librarian in the Reaper collection. For Terry Pratchett fans, what models are the closest for you for a Discworld Wizard (or Wizzard)?
