    Sculpting, painting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and video games/reading/writing when I have time.
  1. I apologize for being sickly! Please believe me when I say that I direly miss having Tawny blow things up, which by my book, is not nearly often enough.
  2. Man, this is looking incredibly cool. My two favorite parts are the beetle (of course), and interestingly, the tree. I can definitely see how it's going to match your original inspiration, and now I want to make a tree monster based off of the same kind of tree. Man, these forums are too freaking inspiring. I'm never going to have any free time ever again. o.o
  3. Not a problem! ^^ I actually plan on buying one or two of these when it does come out. I might have to attempt to sculpt my own eye monster in the mean time!
  4. Well, I've discovered that I can spend a little time sculpting if I sit on a bunch of pillows, so I was able to get some more done! I almost had to find a way to work on these when some new "friends" came in the mail.... I got my silicon tipped sculpting tools! I'm incredibly excited. Around where I live, these things were fifty dollars, and I found these on amazon for 16. Unfortunately, they were shipping from the UK, so it was supposed to take about a month to get here. Surprise surprise, on my hubby's birthday they arrived! So, I got to work... Made some armatures with cob
  5. Admittedly, this is what actually got me wanting to sculpt. When I was younger, my older brother used to play war hammer, and that was my first taste of mini painting. Unfortunately, I didn't understand that there was pinning, and putting together models, so when I bought my own things, I didn't get too far on them. When I did get interested in them again a while back (thank you Citrine), I hadn't even thought about sculpting until I saw this guy's WIP. It's really awesome to see him finished now. :)
  6. Well, this may unfortunately have to be put on a little hold. I can't find my little drill bit heads for one thing, so pinning has become difficult. I could theoretically use some of my other tools to try and do pinning, but I'm having a bit of trouble with getting an even hole, and it takes a while. I feel like I have to be extra careful, because I'm worried that if I'm not, I'll break the mini in half. So you would think that I would just move on to the next set of mushroom men with the armature inside, while waiting to either find or buy new drills, but unfortunately today I received an
  7. Well, it's at least a relief that I would eventually be able to get really detailed with this as I get better. I really like using sculpey products, although you're right about it being easy to screw up, Dr. B. My method for these guys (which I will be changing shortly) was to make their bodies and then bake them, so I could push their caps onto their heads and shape them without deforming their faces. The spikey, gourd shaped mush-man was one that I couldn't do that with though, because he wasn't getting a cap--he was getting spines, to make him look like a ramaria. So I shaped him, left him
  8. Undead! And my husband is a pirate. I've always told him he needs to grow his goatee longer so I can braid it, so hopefully this will finally sell him on it.
  9. Thanks! While I'm waiting for any idea on how to attach the arms and legs to these guys, I'm doodling some concept work and working on wire skeletons for the next batch. I'm kind of curious if anyone has been able to get really detailed with sculpey, or if a level of detail is only possible when working with greenstuff.
  10. Hello everyone! This is my second post here after some time, mainly because I was stressing myself out trying to make all of my sculpts and painting perfect, and there was no way to do that in a quick enough way to be able to play with them in DnD games. So my kind husband finally talked me down from doing everything perfectly, so I could go back to enjoying myself. And the fruits of this are my mushroom people army I'm making! So, this is the start of it. You can see I had started with regular sculpey with one of the mush-ladies, but then I got some super sculpey. There's about ten m
  11. Planning and drawing something interesting...

  12. Hi all! So, now that I've gotten a working SD card reader, I can post some pictures of things that I've sculpted and painted. However, after looking all over these forums, I feel as though my painting might be a little... plain. I'm not sure. So I'm here seeking some advice as to what other things I could do to make the minis I've made look a little better. Bear in mind, I've only painted a few more minis than what you'll actually see here, and since I've taken these pictures, I have noticed certain things that probably need to be fixed, but I'm not entirely sure on the over all paint
  13. Oh man, it was definitely a good thing I asked before I did anything then. I'll keep my nail-polish for my nails then, and I'll look into that Winsor Newton brand, Dixon. And thank you too for the tip MonkeySloth--I'll play around with mixtures and do some tests before I coat my blob guy. Thank you both!
  14. Hello everyone! This is my first post here, so I figured I'd open things up with asking for some advice. A while ago I sculpted a blob monster out of some... honestly really bad clay. It was some kind of volcanic ash mixture that was very crumbly, and felt like thick, mashed up papier mache, but it ended up working decently well for minis when you didn't have to put too much detail into it. I have since painted it green, and I was thinking about looking into some kind of clear gloss coat to make the monster look slimy, but before I even got around to searching for it, I realized I had nail
