  1. *blows a thick layer of dust off of her tiny corner of the WIP section* *sneezes violently* Wow, it's been...way too long since I last posted a project here! So, this is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head since Argent was announced, and I've finally gotten around to putting it into action. This is just for fun, and unless it turns out unexpectedly amazing, I don't plan to enter him at ReaperCon, which makes him just right for easing me back into regular painting! My original idea was this: I discovered a paint pen that holds the EPITOME
  2. This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea. If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed! This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year. My plan is to take this lovely critter: and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these: and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such. So! To that end, I now
  3. This thread will serve as an index of all the Work in Progress and Show-off threads created by participants in this glorious madness. Don't post your entries here! Please make your own threads, then make a post here with links to them. Thread for Official Entries is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76081-maal-drakar-7-day-challenge-official-entries-no-chatter/ The Challenge will begin on August 1st 2017, and will be open for submission of completed entries until midnight CST on August 1st 2018. For further information, please see this thread.
  4. We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax
  5. For those of you who might not know, I like shiny metallic paints a tiny bit. Just a little. As in I currently own over 50 20 different metallic paint colors (plus a few metallic inks and a new metallic wash I'm dying to try out), and I painted an entire cat-sized dragon using only metallic paints. So yeah, I'm kinda sorta IN LOVE with shiny paints. While re-organizing my paints the other day, I realized that I have a lot of shiny paints I haven't played with yet, and lots of fun wacky techniques I haven't fully explored with the rest. So, one purpose of this little thread will b
  6. I've really enjoyed reading all of the Ask Me Anything threads and getting to know people better, so I finally decided to start one of my own. Feel free to ask me about anything: my likes, dislikes, past, present, future, family, footwear, etc. A silly question will likely receive a silly answer, and I reserve the right to respond to any question with cute cat pictures. Because if there's one thing this forum needs, it's more cute cat pictures. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. Among the classes I took at Reapercon this year was Shaded Basecoats, by James Wappel. For those of you unfamiliar with his painting style, it basically breaks all the "rules" of painting miniatures in all sorts of awesome ways. He uses huge brushes, doesn't rinse them out, blends most of his colors together, slops paint on all super messy in the early stages, it's quite the mind-blowing experience! I had SO MUCH FUN in his class that I decided to give a try at home, using a Bones werewolf that MrBoot needed painted before Friday's game. Here's the brush I used for 90%
  8. I actually really enjoy working with a limited color palette, so when I saw this thread proposing a color palette limited to 3 rolls of a d20 against a preselected chart of colors, I had to jump in! Now the Reapercon is finished, I thought it high time I finally started my dragon. I chose Kyphrixis, because he's such a cute little dragon (plus he's the only one of the 3 available options I actually had but that totally has no bearing on my decision whatsoever ). Here are my colors: Since the print is kind of small, here's the numbers: 19, 11, 15. So, according to
  9. When our Ms. Boot arrived at ReaperCon, she was greeted by a little birthday present from me, delivered to ReaperCon by none other than Dilvish... the Deliverer, lol... I found this little plastic toy (the top of its head is about the same height as the top of Sir Forscale's helmet) at the Goodwill Store and It immediately reminded me of a certain someone's forum avatar. At the time, it was white with black spots and yellow eyes, but I knew I had to pick it up and throw some paint on it at some point for her. Fast-forward a couple weeks to me seeing the Happy Birthday, OneBoo
  10. Happy birthday, Lady Boot! May you have a wonderful day!
  11. For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to the Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip . For this Challenge, I will be painting up Ma'al Drakar in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0. The rules are posted below: I will be starting my Challenge at 1:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time on August 2nd 2017 (link here). EDIT: If you want to skip all of the talky stuff, here'
  12. I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue! Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own. Those two things resulted in this: I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint
  13. The following is going to be an EXPERIMENT! Please do try this at home, because I'm not a licensed professional and totally feel no obligation to warn you away from doing awesome things. My goal is to complete these 5 figures, from start to finish, within 48 hours. Whether I will succeed or not remains to be seen. It's more of a "Hey, let's see if I can paint humanoid figures quickly," and I work best with a deadline, artificial or not. Here are my 5 victims: 89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue (Tipsy) 89024 Holy Vindicator (Trunk SlamChest) 77480 Durok, Dwarf
  14. I wasn't originally planning to do a WIP of this guy, but after struggling with super glue and vaseline and half-cured greenstuff, I thought that it might be wise to post about it and learn all the ways I'm going about this wrong. I decided to swap two of the heads because I thought it would look more balanced, and I also decided to add wings because why not? Then, because it totally looked like I'd just hacked stuff apart and sorta glued it back together (because...that's what I did), I decided to break out my increasingly stiff greenstuff. I di
  15. A little backstory: At PaizoCon, there's a fella named Cosmo who runs a TTRPG survival game, where you have to last at least 20 minutes against...killer clowns. Yes, that's right, you get mobbed from all sides by wave after wave of malevolent, monstorous clowns of all kinds. @Reaperbryan paints at least one clown mini for him every year. And if it wasn't originally a clown, he MAKES it a clown. Last year, he and a few forum members (myself included) painted up a whole nightmarish Ronald McDonald clown crew. It was glorious and terrifying and a whole lot of fun.
  16. One of MrBoot's coworkers found out that I painted minis (apparently my husband has been, ah, talking about my skills at work ), and wanted to know if I would be willing to take a commission for his player character. He provided the figure, a Wizkids male elf sorcerer, with a neat translucent fireball spell effect surrounding one hand, as well as his character's background and some details he'd like. I asked some clarifying questions about color scheme and the base and such, as well as explained generally how much different paint job qualities would be. He opted for my "deluxe" level, which i
  17. Just a quick hour-long paint, almost exclusively drybrushed, and the ground is just drybrushed with three green colors I grabbed at random. But it's painted, which is 100% progress since I finished Mashaaf. Pardon the horrible pics; I couldn't find my nice background pages. Sir Forscale, to show how little this guy is. :) Colors used (in order): Brown Liner (base coat) Powderburn Brown (fur) Shadowed Stone (fur) Concrete Grey (fur) Misty Grey (fur) Solid Black (eyes, ears, mouth, nose) Solid White (shine dots) Jungle Moss (ground) Jungle Camo (ground)
  18. This was my very first commission! One of MrBoot's coworkers was wanting a painted figure for gaming purposes, and my husband volunteered my services, for a small fee. I was more than happy to oblige. This was a (for me) fairly quick and dirty paint job. I spent maybe 4 hours total on it, with the first hour spent just prepping (washing, drying, trimming mold lines, priming, waiting for primer to dry, etc.) My goal was "decent tabletop" since it was intended for gaming, and the guy only gave me $15 for the mini+paint job. I did email
  19. This lovely lady was a lot more fun to paint than I'd expected, and I let myself slow down a bit and really experiment with improving my shading and highlighting. I'm super happy with how her dress and apron turned out! Her face...not so much. I'll explain why below the pictures. Oh, and when I was trying to figure out what color to make her hair, even though I think brown would have looked better, I decided I couldn't resist making her a redhead. Yay pictures! I'd put the basecoat on her skin and was about to start highlighting when my right eyelid starting twitching
  20. SparrowMarie posted a week or two ago how she plans to paint at least one figure every day of November, and I thought that sounded like an awesome idea! I may have to play a little catch-up because of Thanksgiving, and because I will be out of town the 4th-6th without access to painting stuffs, but I will do my best. This thread will act as an index of my Show-off threads (since Reaper has requested that separate Show-off threads be made for each figure unless it's a themed group). I may not make my goal, but at the very least, I aim to paint 20 figures this month. :) And that's actual
  21. I have some time off of work with the impending holiday so as always, it's a perfect opportunity to chuck my marbles out the window and take on a paint slopping challenge! If you're not familiar with the Purple Cat Challenge, I highly recommend that you head over here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71342-introducing-the-purple-cat-challenge-mashaaf-in-5-days-wip/page-1 where you can see OneBoot establishing the challenge and defeating Mashaaf herself! Who wouldn't want to take on a challenge set forth by a purple kitty? So here are the roolz: 1) Thou shalt not use any bru
  22. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71625-oneboot-attempts-minivember-painting-a-mini-every-day-in-november/?p=1466407 I based my paint job of this little guy off of the peacock jumping spider (spoilered because spider): I'm very happy with how he turned out, even though it took me three times longer to paint him than I'd planned; painting freehand on a textured, curved surface is hard! You can see the orange strip here, though my camera is making it look more red than it actually is. Group shot! Peter spider
  23. Today I went to Crate and Barrel! Er...I mean crates and barrels. I already had all the paints out for my table and benches, so I decided to paint up the two Bones crates and two Bones barrels I had to match, since I've decided I rather like how the table and benches turned out. Picture! Another Picture! I channeled Bob Ross while I was painting the small crate: "This little guy's leaning a bit. He's tired, he's had a hard life. So I'll give him a friend, right there. Everybody needs a friend. :)" Group photo! Which includes a currently WIP Sir Forscale, who is not fully co
  24. Yay for more drybrushing, woo.... Nothing special, just a table and benches, but these little pieces were fun to paint up, and at least they look decent on the table. The benches have a tendency to tip over, though, so I may have to stick them on half a base each or something. Thank you to Talespinner for sculpting such nice deep wood grain; it made drybrushing delightful! Pictures! (I found my backgrounds, yay!) And a group shot for fun! ...I really need to paint Sir Forscale. I'll try to paint him next. :) Colors used (in order): Brown Liner (primer)
  25. Welcome, welcome, one and all, to the very first Purple Cat Challenge! Most of you are probably familiar by now with the 7 day Goblin Challenge; the one where you can only use brushes Size 0 or smaller, and being kinda crazy is a common prerequisite. If you haven't heard of this madness before, here's the official rules, and here's where the insanity all began. Now, after completing two of them, I've become rather fond of these challenges, and how they've stretched me to my limits and beyond as a painter. Something I've definitely noticed, though, is that while the Goblin Challenges a
