    Well done, Phil. Good to see you back in action. Speed-paint your next ten figures. Derek
  2. Beautiful work, Mengu. The variety of browns and greys combines well with the green and gold that you chose, and the yellow grass reinforces the toughness of (or maybe injury to) the earth. Did you prefer painting these Horde monsters to the Warmachine 'jacks? Derek
  3. I really like Julie's sorceress! The headdress reminds me of the cover of a Dungeon magazine, by James Ryman: http://www.pen-paper.net/rpgdb.php?op=show...&magazineid=503 And that's a nice-looking samurai (Salonka drew the concept) -- first Reaper piece for Jeff Grace, right? Well done! I wonder whether the banner will be hard to cast, but maybe it's flatter than it looks. Lovely mermaid, creepy assassin, brawny half-ogre. Good all around! Derek
  4. Thanks, CBP. Sure, I can talk a bit about the monochromatic palette at Reapercon. See you there! Derek
  5. Thanks, Gus! And see? -- my wardrobe conversion knocked $100 off the price. See you in Denver, Derek
  6. Well done, Michael! Looks good to me. Hooray for updates (and delegating, for Anne's sake ). Derek
  7. I painted an albino crocodile-man (non-Reaper) a few months ago, so you might find the colors useful. Most of the scales were a bone-white, the underbelly was very pale pink, the hands and feet and snout were pinker still, and there were accents/patterns of pale orange. Upper scales: Polished Bone base; wash of Aged Bone; lining with mix of Aged Bone + Brown Liner; highlights Linen White, then Pure White. Underbelly: Fair Highlight + Linen White (1:1); shading Fair Skin + Bone Shadow (3:1 or so), then add some Muddy Brown; highlights Linen White, then Pure White Hands, feet, snout: Rosy Skin, Rosy Highlight. Patterns: Tanned Skin with a little Fire Orange; shading Tanned Shadow plus Fire Orange; highlight add Linen White to the base color. Derek Schubert
  8. The paintings and drawings of Keith Parkinson and the other TSR steadfasts in the 1980s were my introduction to fantasy art, too: Dragon magazine, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, novel covers, and more. In case anyone here is interested, http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org/hm_lls is the address for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Maybe a donation in Keith's memory will help other people fight off their own diseases, either now or in the future. Derek
  9. I am teaching at the RAC -- two classes on lighting effects, one on freehand details, and one on basic sculpting. Look for "Derek Schubert". I will probably digress into color choices, too, though it will be a shorter digression in the sculpting class ("green or brown?"). And no, I don't have a website or gallery yet, but one of my goals for the next few months is getting one started. I'm still learning how to use my camera.... Michael, I'm looking forward to seeing the Ghost King and your other new stuff in person! dks
  10. Michael's ghost king looks great as do John's bard and elf. A fine batch from Chris Smith as well, and is that Rachel's first figure in the gallery? Well done, all around. Beautiful work on the Mother Superior, Anne! The dog and the hound, too. And the harpy does look cute, despite her claw-hands. The dusky skin tones on the harpy and your recent female dervish (Julie's sculpt) are working well for you -- the eyes really stand out and sparkle. Thanks for the compliments, guys. I used Pro-Paints for Matthias, and MSPs for the anti-paladin -- Ron suggested the black armor, purple(ish) hair, and pale skin. Maybe she will show up for Goth night at the Church in a couple of weeks. Derek first post
