    A new park entrance (clay Golem)

    Hi everyone, My painting isn't going so well unfortunately, because of shaking hands from the side effects from my new anti-epilepsy meds. So i spend the past week building a base for my Clay Golem and just finished it. Built out of blue foam, some milliput and creativity Hope you all like it! Any C&C is, as always, much appreciated!!
  2. Had a discussion aa little while back at the FLGS's paint night about color theory and how wolves don't have to be brown or grey, they can be blue or PINK & PURPLE! So I decided to make an example and paint one of the Bones 77009: Werewolfs For added difficulty I did the entire mini in 1.5 hours, I used the package he came in as my palette and a $1 Size 4 Flat brush. The Punk Rock Pink didn't come out quite as bright as I wanted but I still like it. The claws were abysmal. Even if I had spent time cleaning up mold lines etc I think they would have been ugly. There was a spot of fur on the left leg that lost it's detail too. Would do the base darker if I did it again.

    Orcs for my game.. Table Top..

    Here are the three orcs I worked on today. They are for a game I have coming up on Sunday evening. I started the WIP post around 2pm. I had been working on them for about 30-45 minutes by that point. I wanted the hand on the shield be reminiscent of a decaying claw of some sort. I think It came out pretty good. Enjoy! CAH

    77010: Kobolds Speed paints

    Well I got back from my second week of vacation in August, and realized I only had week and a day to get my quota done for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge for this month! A quick Sunday night dig through my drawers of Bones and I found some Kobolds to speed paint. These 9 were painted in maybe 4 hours over 5 lunch hours last week. Just base coats and a few details. Then brought home and Quickshaded. I then sprayed the first 3 with anti-shine, which frosted (due to the humidity I assume). So they were coated with a gloss brush on to try to save them. It brought them back some but they are still a little frosty in a few places...oh well, these are for table top ... They were then all coated with a brush on matt sealer. I may give them a bit more attention with the matt sealer tomorrow evening, but its almost 1 am here, so good enough for tonight...

    Trolls July Resolution Challenge

    02520 Troll Matron and 02416 Cave Troll by Ben Siens For July's Bonus Challenge, Murica! American Trolls, or Trolls Gothic (linked because of troll titties) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10206213286268897&set=a.10204045556237001.1073741836.1166934784&type=1&theater Inspired by: American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and his decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house." The painting shows a farmer standing beside a woman that has been interpreted to be either his wife or his daughter. The figures were modeled by the artist's sister and their dentist. The woman is dressed in a colonial print apron evoking 19th-century Americana, and the couple are in the traditional roles of men and women, the man's pitchfork symbolizing hard labor, and the flowers over the woman's right shoulder suggesting domesticity. The plants on the porch of the house are mother-in-law's tongue and geranium, which are the same plants as in Wood's 1929 portrait of his mother, Woman with Plants. It is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art, and has been widely parodied in American popular culture. I draw a Barbarian Santa (Conan Santa) themed Christmas card every year. I drew this one in 2012.

    Kobolds (Bones)

    I apologize sincerely for flooding the forum, but this is the last one, should be for a while. Ben Siens's Bones kobolds. My low-level monster parties are pretty much complete. Thanks for looking!
  7. GOBLINS. So many goblins. I had a scenario to run and it needed more goblins than I had. Hence the clear solution: paint more goblins. I haven't had much time for painting (or the arm for it, hooray tennis elbow) so these guys got painted in about three hours I think, with just enough lead time for me to throw three coats of sealer on them prior to game time. My existing goblins had black broccoli bases and this scenario was set in snow, so they got white bases. Since the players were going to be stuck with them for a while, I wanted to color-code them and ended up doing that with their clothing, et al. The lucky ones got some rough attempts at wood grain on their weapons.

    77101: Skorg Ironskull, Fire Giant King

    The young blue dragon had been driven from the clutch by it's mother. The nearby lands were not friendly for the young blue. To the east was the hall of the Fire Giants. To the west was the desert. The dragon was forced to raid the herds kept by the giants and they responded. Young Prince Skorg was charged with bringing the dragon to heel. He and his chosen giants fought a running battle with the dragon for days, but in the end it was Skorg that struck the killing blow. He had earned the right to have the skin of the blue made into a fine cloak. Skorg has worn the cloak ever since, even as he ascended the throne..... Thanks for taking the time to have a look. All c's & c's gratefully accepted.

    77010 Kobold by OneBoot

    This little fellow is actually my worst paint job to date. That's because he was an exercise in seeing how quickly I could get a tabletop quality mini that I was happy with. The answer: approximately 5 hours. ...Yeah, I'm totally not cut out for speed painting, lol. I did try my best to let go of all my perfectionist tendencies and do a minimal amount of touch-ups, as well as using unthinned paint to make things go faster, but in the end I got rather distracted by the fiddly details (like eyes, nails, lining things). It was quite refreshing to let loose and not care if it came out perfect, though. So even though to me he looks really sloppy, I feel he's a step forward in my ability to just relax and have FUN with painting! :) I REALLY like the blues I used for the skin, they're so pretty together! I've been looking for an excuse to use Desert Sky for awhile now. Oh, and the reason why he looks like he's supposed to be holding something in his left hand is because I stole his sword for another figure quite some time ago. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Here are some guys I painted up, unfortunately too late, for the PF game I was running the end of last year. I kind of decided, after painting their feathers with Nightmare Black (from the Halloween ghoulie bags), that their clan would be the Blue Crows. Seemed fitting. These were my first PF goblins to paint. They were quite fun. All by Ben Siens. I really love the goblin commando--just a great sculpt. I kind of love goblin dogs, too. Not exactly a goblin dog, but still. I really tried to make him gross With the Bones guys, these were my first Bones painted using Liners to "prime" the figures. I loved the results on that front and will be sticking with it. I liked what it did for the paint going on after it both in terms of how it looked and how it felt--seemed to really knock out the tacky feel. I could be totally wrong, but it really seems to me like the brown and gray liners work better, or at least stick to the Bones better. But anyway. Thanks for looking!
  11. Goblins make great cupids, right? All you have to go is shoot people with the pointy end.

    77024 Goblin by OneBoot

    This guy has been floating around my painting desk for almost a year, so I figured it was about time to finish him up. He's been the subject of experiments from 3 different minis, so it's about time I finished him before he became the subject of more! :) He's got black skin because I was testing which shade I wanted to use on Yephima; also, I wasn't sure whether I would be painting her skin up realistically or not, and wanted another mini to practice on. This was really intended to be a fast paint job, so he turned out decent table-top. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D EDIT: Modified a couple tags

    03064: Kobolds (4)

    Hey, folks. Picked up some kobolds for the PF game I'm running, and I finally got them painted. These are the metal set of four, by Ben Siens, from the Dark Heaven line. I'm afraid my photos are letting me down even more than my painting skills. I haven't figured out my setup, yet. I was really proud of how I highlighted these guys with orange highlights--I'm still working to eschew the too-white highlights and all--but they're washing pretty well in these pictures. Everything I'm trying lately tends to be either too light or too dark. Hopefully some of it's getting through, though. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome. I've got some Bones kobolds still to paint, so any tips however specific would be most helpful.

    Goblin War Band (02481)

    Finally--FINALLY--finished the Goblin War Band on which I started a month and a half ago, before we moved. Reaper stuff, sculpted by Ben Siens. These are sculpts I really love--I've got some PF goblins headed my way, and they're cool, but I really dig the more traditional take. Or, at least, that seems more traditional to me, anyway. I likes 'em. I don't know how well these are going to show, but I feel like I had some measure of success with these. I didn't over-highlight, at least not with the super-whitened green like I did with the orcs, while back. I used the same home-mixed green for these guys, but highlighted with a much more yellow mix of green. I'm really pleased with them in person, and am told the details are showing well, but I'm afraid the pictures might be losing it some. Hopefully this isn't a total waste of everyone's time. I'm having to figure out new lighting and everything for photographing my minis. And, I mean, I supposed I could wait until I get another, movable, lamp, but I'm way too excited for that. But yeah. Here we go: Thanks for looking! Any input or advice you have about anything is totally welcome.
  15. Lathula, Female Barbarian, Reaper 03019, sculpted by Ben Siens, painted by me. I like half-orcs. They always seem to be painted with black hair, but I figured since orcs don't have hair it would be the human parent who provides the hair color. So why not a redhead? I didn't paint her hair shiny, though, because it kind of looks greased up and pulled back. I used this figure in my tutorial on how to paint illusionistic grass.
