  1. Well, if the dead are being re-hashed, I guess I'll toss my ancient history in, too: Well, I got better.
  2. Sure do. Orchid - on her way now to toss some pies and drop some anvils
  3. Topic pretty much says it. Just curious as we play it here, and it could be fun to find some other toons to unite with. Princess Gwen Gigglesticks
  4. I'll have to go look at silo, thanks. I am impressed with anyone that makes anything that can be recognized at this point, and this ship falls well within the recognizable. (I finally managed something that looks kind of like a cross between a beholder and a ball of ooze )
  5. How is Silo, for a newb? I just picked up Hex2 (on sale insanely cheap, link on my site in sig) and have just started dabbling in the building side of the 3d thing. Model is looking good, I like it.
  6. From Kit's announcement in the news: http://reapermini.com/beta/chat/ Sorry, guess I could've tossed that in.
  7. I think I realized it because I was being baited into my 1000th post, I'd have to do a search to be sure. And i finally got around to choosing a domain this weekend.
  8. In my experience, it's smaller and alot more focused on the artists and the painting/sculpting side of things. I made it to last year's, and it was great.
  9. If you'd be having your wedding that weekend, wouldn't that mean you couldn't come though? Cool idea for a date. If not for anything, but to tweak out superstitious guests The not being able to make it wouldn't happen until he gets his vacation time at the new job, at which point we are hoping to get me back to DisneyWorld for a week, and that will be after the first of the year. RAC would be a perfectly acceptable hold-over treat! To go with the date the colors are going to be red, black and (who-da-thunk-it) purple. Although I have given up on my dream of a 72mm handsome incubus to go with Sophie as the cake toppers.
  10. OMG! That would be too awesome! That Friday is the date Allen and I are trying to get everything lined up for to have our wedding!!! (yeah, I'm an odd one according to my family )
  11. Wow! Congratulations and welcome to the neighborhood!!
  12. Man, I am having to exercise every ounce of will power in me to finish the other version of her that I had started before the con! I have one of this one cleaned and ready to prime, but must.....finish....other.....first.
  13. Get your pictures outta my thread!!! It's not hijacking, it's con pics..... Orchid - feelin' silly
  14. ReaperCon Day 3 This is a wrap for me. I was so busy and distracted Sunday that I didn't take any pictures. I was so much fun. It was so full of talent, knowledge, and good people. Only thing I didn't like was that is was too short. The purple one has put her camera down and picked her paintbrushes back up, because oh man, do I have alot to paint!
  15. Sorry Let me try again. That is what I though they were. I guess what I am seeing is that the flats of the blade appear brown on my monitor, so it left me wondering instead of positive that was what you were doing. This could well just be a part of the internet downfall of not all monitors are the same and mini painters not necessarily being professional photographers (the latter of which eats mine often). I would like the see more highlighting on the gold of the blades, personally, to bring out the shine of the gold. But, if the flats are closer to black than I am seeing, then highlights could easily be getting lost on screen, as well. (I know how much better minis can look in hand) Please remember that I do not paint NMM (personal preference) so I will differ to someone who does to hopefully step in. And again I will say I do like her, quite a bit, actually.
  16. First I'm going to ask: Is the texture that is showing (on the lower part of the cloak, especially) from the mini or your primer? If primer, what are you using? I'll venture to guess that the mentioned highlights are, as my thoughts, called for the most on the cloak, but the flesh wouldn't suffer if more were added. Also, if you haven't heard it yet, you will eventually, and repeatedly (most of us got it ALOT) try thinning your paints a bit (more?), it will help you get smoother results in blends and highlights especially. The border on the cloak looks nice, but I think it would benefit from less distinct brush strokes showing, and the thinning helps greatly with this. I love your color selection (again), and the base is great, it really fits the mini. Lookin' good!
  17. Glad I'm not the only one! I was sitting here just staring at it trying to decide exactly what I thought about that green, then scrolled enough to see that. Definite progress there, especially on the "top" side of her snake half. I can't quite decide what I think about the direction you went with the weapons, but I don't see it as a bad direction. I really like the base, and will second on the jewels. Maybe a little less contrast between the colors on the blade would be my main suggestion, or blend in some highlights/shadows to help "explain" the contrast (ie. is it a finish on the flats of the blades? etc..) I really like her face, the eyes look good from here. Her hair is lovely and her skin color is great!

    OMG! I wish I did! I came in on that one too late to do so. THAT was hilarious!!!
  19. I love the one's you sent me, too! I admire them regularly.
  20. That Warlord was my pick of the entire contest. But I already told you that. (and it's not because you actually used metallics )
  21. You got me! I thought I had stayed well enough hidden BEHIND a camera!
  22. I am sorry, I was pooped yesterday, and we didn't make it home for lunch today, so...... Got some requests filled, a walk through from the Asylum to a casting station, some of the gaming tables, and a couple of extras. More later, like today's, fer instance. must rest, eat, clean, etc..... Class at 10am for the hubby! The new ones are about half way down, enjoy!
  23. Oh poop. I hadn't read the rule that way, but I must concur with that as a possibility. Ok, I will keep working on everything then, and ya'll will have to wait until I either get a clarification or until after the awards tomorrow night. Sorry. Too many beautiful pieces full of peoples hopes for me to take that leap of faith in my interpretation. Many pics though, I promise! Thanks Flynn, seriously! Wendy
  24. Those banners are sa-weet! (I could really live with a gaming room plastered floor to ceiling all the way around with them. (and the colors came out gorgeous!) Alright.. The pics for tonight. They are on hold while I unwind a bit. I have about 1/3 of them cropped and/or sized. There are quite a few entries, and I have more to get shot in the morning, plus the deadline isn't until noon tomorrow, so I expect a healthy number of "last minutes". I will most likely be able to get that painter group shot at the awards tomorrow night. I got pics of the paint equipment, a casting station, racks of molds, etc... I am trying to get ya'll pics that I would take if it were my first time, so I am thinking of all of you all most of the time I'm there. Until I get chill and get these up, Wendy EDIT! I DID get photos of the tables, too!
