  1. I had such a wonderful time this year! I was so grateful to be able to see everyone and hang out. It was a much-needed break. I loved the extra space we had at our artist row seats Usually I have to pack my stuff into a smaller space, so this year I didn't feel like I crowded my table-mates as much. I suspect that was because there were fewer of us, but maybe we can stick with the same space size in the future. I loved doing the feedback on sunday, so I'm hoping we can do that again. Maybe with some limited hours saturday night for those leaving early sunday.
  2. hmmmn... I wonder if Jim has anyone in mind for these. I'd love to paint them! Great job so far!
  3. As one of the judges, just come find me at my desk (Erin Hartwell) and I can give her some constructive feedback and even demo some things to help her. I'm happy to do that before the competition if she wants to work on her entry while she's at the con, or after the competition. If she wants to learn what we look for and how we judge, I'm pretty sure all of us are happy to help. I tend to "grade up" for youth because I want to encourage younger painters and we all totally remember what it's like to be new to painting! We want to encourage people to enjoy our hobby! Hope that helps. But ple
  4. I'm in the Wave 1 waiting boat, but I'm so excited to see everyone's awesome pictures!!! Keep posting! Thanks for the updates, Guindy. Hang in there everyone.
  5. Our local health department gave us all buttons to wear saying "I got my covid-19 vaccine." I plan to wear mine to Reapercon, and am happy to talk data and scope out the cdc website with anyone who wants! (even though I'm on 'vacation!') Oddly, I have not had the slightest desire to buy microsoft products... chocolate maybe... hmmmn...
  6. It occurs to me with the weather that some folks may not receive paints or supplies for my classes. Have no fear. Reaper will be recording the classes, so I'm pretty sure we should be able to go back later and watch and follow along. This may actually be a good thing. Sometimes I like watching someone do a technique, then I go play around with it later and learn it all over again. Also, if you can't get specific paints, ask in the chat, and I can tell you which paints can sub. I can even demo with some of them if it would help. Now I just have to attempt not to stress about bei
  7. I know when I registered for mine, I immediately received an email from reaper notifying me. I just checked and searched my mail with the tag "reaper" and they all came up in a neat little row. They are listed in my inbox under a title such as "reaper classroom 2" or "reaper class 5" Hope that helps! But in terms of the website, I'm not sure. Jon might know?
  8. yes! Surf aqua would probably be the closest. The maggot white will probably be too light, but you can use it as you "white" instead of pure white. Or, you can use ghostly moss or spectral glow if you have those. These are all fairly intense greens with a good amount of white pigment in them so they should work fine. Alternatively, if you happen to have any artist acrylics, viridian or pthalo green mixed with a bunch of pure white or titanium white would also work. I seem to recall Anne telling me mint green was basically pthalo green with white in it. Hope that helps! Keep in
  9. I tried playing around with the zoom on my browser and that worked. I think it's because I have it setup as bigger font for work. So if anyone has issues, change the font size!
  10. for some reason my computer illiteracy is affecting my ability to read my descriptions. I suspect it is just me being a dinosaur, but in case it isn't, here's the blurb on each of my classes. I'm also happy to answer any questions about them as well. Looking forward to seeing everyone! Skin Deep Monster Edition This is an intermediate level skin class, focused mainly on blending and glazing to achieve smooth skin tones. But unlike last fall, we’ll be going crazy! (Insert Bob Ross voice here.) This class will cover blue skin, perfect for our frosty giantess. Students
  11. oh- the cat fellow does have his extra parts, but I left them in the bag. No worries! I never ended up buying any of the old crystal-bearing dragons, so I'll have to tackle them soon! yay!!! Thanks again!
  12. woot! Ok, I got my box earlier this week, but now I can post! I got some awesome goodies from Kangaroorex!! I may have... eaten most of the cookies... But here is a shot of all the rest! I am especially excited about the possibilities of the cat centaur and the frog. I play the Ori games, so I've been wanting to make a Kwolok mini for awhile now. He's a perfect jumping off point! I forgot to include Rocky in the group pic! I love the "Snack Time" mini!!! Nice work! He's on my shelf of awesome!
  13. I'm slowly working, should be done on time. Here's a wip. Sorry it's out of focus. my phone can be iffy. soon! I swear, I haven't painted small things in awhile... I miss busts...
  14. woot woot woot! I got my first covid vaccine today!!! Hope it's ok to post here. If not, apologies and delete away. Not trying to be controversial or anything. In frustrating news I have to quarantine until I get my test back due to an exposure last week, so probably no Christmas for me. But, hey! I feel great! Soontm this will help me get back to the next Reapercon!!! Hang in there everybody. Happy Holidays!
  15. That was our Thanksgiving- I dropped a pie at my brother's and took home some lovely turkey, etc. Yum yum! I think you're good with that plan, and your risk should be minimal. For surfaces, most of the stuff I've read says a few hours to a few days, depending on the surface- I tend to err on the side of caution and say 48 hrs to 72 hrs. By then, virus particles should be dead. But, don't stress too much about surfaces, because they key is then not to touch your face. The virus isn't transmitted by touch, but by particles making their way into your eyes, mouth or nose. Things on the surface
  16. As an update on our front, I received our numbers from the local hospital this morning. Our covid census has increased from 73 to 97 this week, and they project based on the community increase for that to reach 140 in the next few weeks. This is in line with the data we've been collecting since april. Cases in our county increased from 672 in one week to 1080 this past week. I had a patient come in positive without knowing it, but so far my testing is negative and I feel fine. Our hospital is shutting down overnight elective surgeries again to reduce hospital bed usage. Keep in mind, our
  17. aka Hey Guys, I get to play D&D on twitch for charity! Every year our local store runs a 24 hour marathon D&D session of old school modules for the charity Extra Life (benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.) Usually we donate to play and others donate to try to kill us off as quickly as possible to make room for new players. Or as I like to do, donate for healing spells to save the players from almost certain death! We even survived a real life snowstorm one year! Given the pandemic, this year's game will be all virtual, and the players have set time slots. But
  18. So, I love OSL, and have been working on it more over the last few years. Rhonda used to teach a really great class on it, but I know she puts a bunch of stuff on her blog, so that's a great resource as you've seen. I thought I'd throw a few things out there if it helps. Here are the more recent minis I've done with OSL in mind: This one my lighting designer friend did point out had shadow placement issues, but I'd had limited space and a deadline, so... yeah. But using the environment to sell the effect helps a ton. An isolated figure won't carry light effects as well a
  19. When the pandemic first started, a few of my patients mentioned losing loved ones, usually in new york, new jersey or florida. As time passes, more and more tell me their stories. Lately, I have been sending more people for counseling due to stress or grief. I'm fairly lucky in that I own my own practice, so I can set the rules I feel are safe, in accordance with what our local hospital system is doing. Gotta keep up the standard of care! So I have a 'no mask no service' rule that probably loses me a few patients, but I quite frankly don't care. Our hospital system is very good at communi
  20. I'm finished but have some serious editing to do. I ended up pausing on one story and working on another and doing some journaling, but words and more words have finally come to life. Woot! Ok, until next year. Great job everyone!!
  21. We can do it! Admittedly, I have spent the day binging avatar the last airbender, cooking buttermilk pancakes and birdwatching... but, um... I did write... some... words... The day is not over yet! Go team! We can do it!! In the immortal words from Galaxy Quest: Never give up. Never surrender!
