So, I went to Origins this weekend and entered the Reaper Speed-Paint. I was only supposed to be at the con on Friday and Saturday, but I paved on Friday and won my Saturday semifinal, so I called in sick on Sunday so I could compete in the finals, where I managed to pull off a win. Friday was the scarecrow, Saturday was the hobgoblin, and Sunday they gave us the Jungle Titan. I'd already painted two of the three before, which certainly didn't hurt when it came go time. I didn't get a chance to get pictures in my photo studio before heading out on vacation, so these are the shots I took with my phone at the convention. We had 45 minutes in round 1, 50 minutes in round 2, and a whopping 60 minutes in round 3.
I got around to painting the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion "Jungle Titan" a few months back, figured I'd post him up. I wasn't sure on color palette, but then I remembered he was referred to as a "Kaiju" during the KS, and decided to crib the colors from Pacific Rim (or "Awesome Dumb Robot Movie") for the palette, and I think it came out pretty well. His base includes the fallen pillar from Bones 77363 Deva and some clay.
Now I don't want to alarm anyone or cause shock or anything, but I am actually going to paint something. (I know, weird right?) I'm not really taking a break from sculpting so much as I am making time to paint to keep my painting skills intact. I'm afraid that if I don't start doing a figure here and there, I might get too rusty with the brush. I have a really cool idea that I want to do for ReaperCon this year, but it will challenge me considerably from a painting perspective. This WIP is not that project. This WIP is the project where-in I attempt to remember which end of the paint brush to put into the paint so that I have a hope of pulling off the real projects for ReaperCon. That said, I will approach this mini as a possible Painters entry and we'll see where it goes. I chose the Jungle Titan from Bones III, because the figure will come in handy as a boss in one of my PF campaigns. To be honest, I like a lot about this mini, but I'm not crazy about the feathers or the skull head, so my first step is to cut it up and resculpt the parts I want different. Right now I am using this guy as a putty catcher for my other sculpting projects (i.e., sculpt on which I can use up left over putty). Here are the results of the first sculpting session I did last night: Comments welcome. Andy
