  1. Nightmarish is definitely the vibe I was going for. My interpretation was vines, but the original description of the sussurus is ambiguous, referring to it as an exoskeleton, so it could really be painted as any material. a glass or gem effect could be striking. The previous suggestion of painting it like energy is a nice interpretation as well. With the right paintjob I think it would make an excellent "caller in darkness."
  2. More meetings, so not much time for painting, but plenty for sculpting. I made some changes to the prototype, and started a second piece that is being modeled as still hidden in the leaf litter. I was only intending to do one, originally, but three makes for a much more complete encounter (read: brutal), so that is the new goal. Still a good amount to do before the first bake. I will be adding a few extended tendrils on the new piece in the near term. the third piece will have a rather complex base, so the first thing to do there is build that out before making the creatures armature.
  3. Maybe try photographing it against a white background?
  4. I have a painting WIP running, and I think it is going decently well - I am keeping up on it, anyhow. I thought I would start a cumulative WIP on whatever random sculpting and terrain I do. It is a pretty big part of the hobby for me, and I enjoy it a lot, so I hope to keep it going on a personal level. While I am easily better at sculpting digitally (by a lot), I really don't enjoy doing it. At this point in my life, significant time spent in front of a computer is work, and I have enough of that to do. So, Ill post my ham fisted attempts to sculpt things for my personal collection below
  5. Minor update. I think these orange eyes are getting closer to what I had in mind, so I will work on refining that strategy.
  6. There is some "second chance" stuff I'd like to get, but it burns me that I have to use a second email. I have a dedicated email for transactions, period. Sure, I have other emails, but they are confidential / professional. I really don't want to create a new email I then have to manage to buy some additional stuff one time. If that is how it is going to be, HARD PASS.
  7. It has been a bit since my last update and I have had a rough go of it. My boys broke into my painting stash and my brushes were out of commission, and it took nearly a week to replace them. Since then I have been mucking around with the colors trying to get the greens just right, and picking out a handful of skulls I missed on the first pass (im sure I still missed a few). While I was working on colors, a dilemma crept in - What about the OSL eyes? I tried red, purple, and green. the green is pictured here. It lacks the contrast of the red (which really popped) but is ni
  8. I am going to keep it more plant like, similar to the Sussurus that inspired it, so I will continue to work on some bark like texture and bring more browns into it. I do plan on trying an OSL effect in the eyes of the heads, for some visual appeal. like an eyes-in-the-dark type vibe An "energy" paint job would be really cool; as though the body were a manifestation of some sort. A bone colored tumbleweed version would be super fast to paint, so that was tempting.
  9. I have had a busy week so far, but I managed to squeeze in two more brief sessions to start on some color work. I spaced out during one of them and the other side of the mini was neglected, so it is in sorry shape. I'll have to focus on it during my next session to get it caught up.
  10. I made some additional progress last night. - Added some additional bone texture to the base with GS. - used some wood filler to blend the bones into the base - primed with red liner - base coated and added a wash or two. moving fast.
  11. Some minor progress. 1) Cleaned up mold lines 2) Made some polymer clay rocks 3) Glued everything to a reaper base (inverted) 4) cleaned up gaps and the edge with GS, and used the leftover to make a vine on the base. Still some additional work to do on the base texture before I move on to painting. O.K.... this beast finds its creative origin in the Fiend Folio....
  12. My stash will arrive today! I haven't done a WIP in a very long time , something I intend to remedy. I am extremely excited to get my hands on my contribution to Bones 5, the Whispering Ghoulsbane. Maybe more so than any prior piece I have made. Seeing as how I don't actually have the mini in had at this moment, Id thought I'd fill this space with some history about the concept. I like to watch reviews for feedback on pieces I've made (and learned a lot). A few review waffled on what the thing was, exactly. Part of me revels in this ambiguity -it is what you want it to b
  13. Pretty wild - very creative ideas on an .....unusual mini, is high impact. You have my attention!
