  1. This thread is brought to you by the number 3! Table of Contents: - Mori Tells a Story: Below - Rambling, Part 3: Throughout - Mannequin: Completed - Kiara: 1: Design, 2: Workflow and Blockout, 3: Finished Blockout, - Amaya: 2020 was STILL spent on my brain and learning, even if my hands wouldn't let me practice it. Between my arms getting worse and *gestures broadly in 2020,* that didn't leave much energy for socializing either. But now that I have fixed arms, I'm excited to pace myself get my butt into the art chair! Wooo! Nevermin
  2. Wooo! Since I have arms again, I can paint again! I know it can be more difficult to get better blends on larger surfaces, but some semblance of brush control seems more important to get back first. That seems easier to do with larger areas first. And I've been dying to work on this piece for years, so it all works out! These bookends were a gift from a friend a couple years ago. He was moving across the country and entrusted his more fragile Lord of the Rings pieces to me. I loved it. It's a Weta Workshop/Sideshow Collectible titled, "No Admittance." Booken
  3. I apologize for not being on the forums (or doing art) so much lately! Between "2020," a new house, and my arm problems, I lost a lot of drive. Kinda hard to keep up the discipline of practicing and/or enjoying art when you physically can't do it.... We finally saved up enough to get my right arm looked at in late September. I've only mentioned it a few times, but I've had problems in both hands for several years. I already couldn't do too much each day, but back in March my right elbow began to be in severe daily pain too. I couldn't do anything at all for seven months.
  4. Alternative Title: How Morihalda Achieved Maximum Distraction from 14 Other WIP Threads: A Story. Chapter One 6 November. My husband and I went on a date to the museum. We always have so much fun there and learn so many new things! I saw an absolutely gorgeous snake and thought, "Wow, that would be an excellent dragon pattern. OH WOW Ma'al could be five different reptile patterns!!" I'd been wanting to do a skeletal or blacklight theme for him for forever, but I decided those would be better suited on a smaller dragon. I spent some time that night researching
  5. I had to change the title since apparently "March of the Murlocs" is already a thing in the current game. And I was so proud of the name, too! My husband loves his gift (the biggest and bestest success!!!) but it would have been great if my painting for my ReaperCon entry wasn't so awful two years in a row. All the details, rambling love stories, and modding/creation details are in my WIP thread here!
  6. Hey all! I've been working hard on my husband's surprise birthday present. It was going to be a surprise reveal at ReaperCon, but finances/vacation time mean that it's just me going now. But since I told him about it, that means I get to make a WIP thread! Yay! I grabbed these really cool "Deep Ones Mutant Fishmen" by RAFM out of the Box of Goodwill a couple years ago. He accidentally saw them so I've had to wait until I was sure he forgot about them, haha. Oops. When we were teens and couldn't meet up, we spent most nights online together. A lot of that time was spent in W
  7. Hi all! Most of the Randomness thread folks noticed that this chatterbox wasn't around much last year. 2018 was spent working on my brain. I think I made a lot of progress so hopefully that means I get to spend more of 2019 working on my art! My last post from my previous sculpting thread: As always, I appreciate love and critiques, and I hope that by showing a little bit of the time and effort it takes it pursue sculpting, others will try without getting discouraged by the climb up! So let's get started! Table of Contents: - General Ramb
  8. Several friends helpfully pointed out that before I started throwing wild ideas at Ma'al's base, I should probably practice them somewhere else first. That base is on my February list, so I gotta get practicing! Blightfang: - Completely covered giant base. - No integrated parts. I chopped 'em off. - Water with a "live" edge! - The first dragon I owned, blessed upon me by my first Box of Goodwill group, and a perfect fit for a Silversage dragon. Narthrax: - Plain, round, smaller base. - Rocks from his original base are staying. - Probab
  9. I live! I spent January making lots of little art that piqued my interest to get back into making art frequently again! I painted a friend's Heroforge mini. It's quite grainy compared to metal minis but goodness, has it gotten so much better. I also have a rough camera adding additional graininess. It's hard to see here, but the vast majority of his robes are in Leather White. Pure White was only used for the extreme highlights, like on the potion bottle. The red also has green in the shadows. I'm learning! I painted our entire set of the Secret Weapon Tabl
  10. Whoo! I primed these all last month after ReaperCon. And then they just sat there while I finished other stuff. But now my desk is clear and I'm ready for more art! I am solidly in the "paint a solid color on the mini with a little shadow and highlight because I wanna play or sculpt" category. I also feel like I could have given my most recent sculpt a lot more love simply by not just painting her all the same shade of brown, haha! So I've gathered up my paint, a handful of bones minis, my notes from Rhonda, Derek, and Erin, and now it's time to learn how to paint skin!
  11. Hey all! This thread will be about my sculpting journey. I hope that by showing the time and effort it takes it pursue an art, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up. I plan on posting daily here - I might as well continue my daily art streak! Some days might have some cool stuff, but many will probably be like, "Oh man. I sculpted a lot of fur today. A. Lot." Anyways. Hopefully y'all will get some enjoyment out of it. Here's to day 1 (tomorrow)! Comments and praise are appreciated, but please give critiques too!
  12. Hello friends! It's good to see you all again! My energy levels have been slowly ramping up over the last month, so now I'm excited to spend a bunch of it here with forum friends. My husband and I played D&D again with @Rainbow Sculptor and her family over the weekend and had a great time. While we were playing, they brought out this mini - she was gorgeous and I had completely forgotten that I had her too! I believe Damaris was 2017's Duskwarden mini. Bobby Jackson already made her both fierce and a babe, so now I just gotta make her a pirate! My list:
  13. (Holy moly, I haven't done a WIP since Spring 2016) HOLY MOLY, how have I never painted a dragon?? I went through my stuff - I have a BOX of unpainted dragons. Thanks, Bones III. We're fixing that right now! Questgiver here: I choose you, Three Star Stormwing! My rolls from this morning (also here): I actually got some really lovely rolls here. Even though one of them is pure black, which limits me to 4 colors instead of 5, the heather blue and cloudy grey look nice together. Unfortunately for contrast, they sort of.
  14. Hello art family! Y'all might remember my 2016 thread, where I focused on making a habit of drawing every day. 2017 was wild and I decided against a thread here, but I have continued that art streak through this year with a slight change - painting and sculpting was allowed to sustain that miniatures habit. I'm getting a bit of a headstart with my 2018 thread! I'd love to learn some fancy traditional art school basics, and I think a lot of these things transfer over to most any type of art, like mini painting and sculpting. I see lots of friends here talking about color, lig
  15. I've had a chunk of antler sitting in my drawer of basing materials for years, waiting for the right figure to use it on. I recently acquired the Bombshell Miniature Morihalda bust, and inspiration stuck! The antler was cut at a weird angle but I was able to use a hacksaw and a miter box to square off the top. I have the dilemma of trying to figure out a) the right orientation of the bust to the base, and b) if I want to fare in the bust pedestal to the antler using green stuff. I plan on putting a couple of pins in her base, and then matching sockets in the antler. I figure I can blank o
  16. Whoo! Time to paint for ReaperCon! RUSH RUSH RUSH RUSH I don't paint very often, and now that I'm entering a competition, it's painfully obvious that I don't know any techniques past basic color blocking and washing in shadows. I need to try a whole bunch of new things. So! Let's learn: - Dark elf skin (I want purple dark elves, to be specific) - Soft, gray leather - Wild hair color blending - Fire - OSL from the fire! First, dark elf skin. I found the first page of @Corporea's Drow bust very helpful - her initial attempt was much too
  17. “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.†- Andy Warhol 2015 was a really big year of emotional recovery for me. It's taken several years, but I truly felt that change last year. So with that progress in mind, I decided I wanted more. I've dedicated 2016 to learning about my favorite thing in the whole wide world - ART! I've got a lot to learn and a lot of time to get back. I'm going to make it worth my while to make time for art. I'll be using this thread as a goal marker if you would like to learn with me. These are my 2016 Goals: P
  18. Say that 3 times fast! This will be a thread for my sculpting journey. Critiques and tips are GREATLY appreciated (I wouldn't mind a kind word every now and then too ). I'll get into more details later, but right now I'm looking to a nice Saturday night spent sculpting!
  19. Happy Birthday Morihalda I hope you have a lovely day with lots of artsy presents!!! AAARRROOOOO!!!!!
  20. So way back, y'all probably remember that I got all excited about snow globes. Yeah. I haven't tested any of those materials. I started sealing my test pieces and kept seeing terrifying warnings everywhere. So the water part is on hold, but pleeease add to that post if you have any waterproof suggestions! Here's my sketch for it. I'm unsure about the fence. I'm hoping that running it next to the little guy in the front will lead you to the middle so they feel connected. I've been watching some art videos and they said that guiding your viewer's eye is important! I think I will -not- cross
  21. Hey guys! My excited ramble and snowglobe idea list: The Questions: Google says exposed pewter can corrode, I would think that properly primed, painted, and sealed minis would be safe, correct? I would want the paint to be waterproof. Does anyone have any experience with waterproof sealers? Especially ones that aren't super shiny? Would it be better to put the Reaper sealer on, then the waterproof? Material - I've found a seller for no-seam glass globes that are 4"/100mm diameter. Would it be safer to find a plastic globe, and then find some sort of scratch protectant? Distrac
  22. So I was assigned Morihalda (yay!) for the 2016 Spring Exchange and I received the survey that she filled out to get an idea of what I should paint for her. In the section asking what she would not like to receive, she put "ugly undead things. " Well, as one who happens to love undead things and thinks they're absolutely adorable, I took offense to this (not real offense, obviously,) and decided that I was going to give her a pretty undead thing. So the idea here is that the elf ranger saved what he thought was a beautiful princess, only when she turned around, he didn't have time to ru
  23. Hey all! This is my spring exchange mini for Flamehawke. I was going crazy with excitement when the PM with her information included a love for Pokemon! I was going for a cartoony feel with them to match the show. I hope you guys like her! Special thanks to Talespinner for sculpting advice, Corporea, Guindyloo, and several others in the chatter thread with colors, and ub3r_n3rd with basing! You guys rock, and I learned SO MUCH with this mini. Sculpting WIP for Flareon and the girl's conversions is in this thread. Apologies for photo quality - I only have my phone.
  24. Hey all! Now that the awesome Flamehawke has received her spring exchange mini, I'd love to post my sculpting progress for it! It was a ton of fun making her, but I did have to wrestle with the green stuff to go the way I wanted sometimes. I haven't really learned how to handle it yet. The folks in this thread, especially canuckotter and TaleSpinner, were a ton of help, so I hope y'all don't mind me bugging everyone here again for some real critiquing now! The Trainer I started with Sugar, Anime Heroine, by Bob Ridolfi, who became.... ... A Pokemon trainer on her way to b
