  1. Finally the weekend! What a wait it felt like to get here. With it being the Easter weekend, I figured it'd be fitting to do some bunnies. I had hoped to make these for a family member and ship them out, but that didn't pan out. However, getting them painted is still better than not. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * The butterscotch coloring I saw on some rabbits on Whidbey Island, I couldn't help but use as inspiration. Matching them to how they came out, I'd say was better than I expected. * Using very, very simple colors and just pushing the colors up with mixing them worked great! * Making the details come out more by using very faint streaks of diluted paint worked great to give the impression of individual hairs sticking through. I think this will be used in other models I do as well. * Eyes have a nice pop to them, but was thinking some more color would be good. Misses: * I was thinking of putting some wash in there to bring forward the creases, but I didn't want to lose that fun color. Any suggestions? * The eyes have a strangeness to them by highlighting the eye lids. Would you all suggest doing dark instead of light around the eyes? * Speaking of eyes I wasn't sure if putting a spot of white in there was good or not, so I held off. Pretty happy with how this little bunny came out.
  2. Got another bunny done for the weekend. Feeling pretty good on getting some animals done. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Using another photo for inspiration, I was interested in that this bunny photo had a slight 'blueish' tone to the color in the grey. I was interested in trying to match it. Used Denim Blue, Grey, and black to get it. Came out pretty good! * The white was also one that I needed to be able to highlight up and I didn't want to use another grey. I ended up going with the Ghost White, which had a light blue to it, and I thought went with the grey color I mixed, too. * The colors blended well and I was able to use the same technique I used on the other butterscotch bunny of doing a feathering of lighter color to bring the hair detail forward. * Used a nuln oil diluted for the recesses and around the tail. Worked good enough. Wouldn't have minded a little more contrast, but still cute. Misses: * I didn't highlight up the fleshy colors on the nose. I somewhat feel it needs more of a "pop" and think it was a miss that I didn't. * The white is still on the weaker end and coudl have gone a little darker so I could bring the white hair forward more. Using the zenithal highlight helped, but still wanted more. These were both super fast and only a handful of colors needed, so both bunnies were solid. Open to any feedback ya got. Now I gotta base them with something cute and fun...
  3. Hi folks! I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! Painted this Mousling on last night's Twitch livestream :) Worked on some freehand lace patterns and put a normal-sized penny (I swear!) next to this little guy for scale. He was so much fun to paint
  4. A tiny sliver of NASA's budget supports a wee little webpage called The Astronomy Picture Of the Day. As with all things NASA an acronym results: APOD. If you missed the eclipse, they did not: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140416.html But do click on the link for the caption, explanation, and further links --- for the sake of SCIENCE. Moving on to April 17th: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140417.html This took a day or two for someone to composite. But, again, do click on the link for the caption, explanation, and further links --- for the sake of SCIENCE. Also look for the very subtle " > " link on each APOD page, which will take you to the next day. April 16 to 20 have just been particularly cool. (Your tax dollars zapping the moon with a laser, how cool is that?) Here is the April 20 image hidden with spoiler tagging: ...but again I recommend checking out the original. (BTW, The original image often will link to a high-res version.)
