Not sure if there was a more appropriate place for this, but I know I've seen a few folks do non-miniature painting and thought I'd ask for advice. Dear Mum is more of a hobby artist than myself. She has taken a couple of courses on drawing and painting and has had some private lessons with a retired artist (watercolor). I would like to get her a nice book or two that will help her continue improving or just for inspiration to do more even when she no longer has access to the lessons. She probably has one or two books already from her courses, but I am sure it's been a dozen years or longer since. Anyway, if anyone could give me a few suggestions, I'd really appreciate it. I am open to ideas other than a book, too, but she probably has most of the standard materials for watercolor. She also still does sketching if that helps. I think she prefers to do landscape, flowers, and interesting architecture for her watercolors, but I know she has complained about having to get the dimensions of buildings right, so maybe not so much the architecture. Thanks! (PS - I might be brave enough to try to do an homage to her in miniature form this year, but I still want to do the book thing - especially if the miniature does not happen in time)
I'm not sure if this is more of a work in progress, or belongs here in general fantasy. In any case, I got a copy of a book* on do it yourself fantasy mapping for my older son for Christmas, and yhen decided to get one for me too. As miniature wargamers, we have need of a variety of maps for campaign purposes, and I usually rely on my kids. I wanted to see if I could do this for myself for a change. Here's a test doodle, to no particular plan, just to try the inking and watercolors, neither of which are techniques I've had much to do with. *How to Draw Fantasy Art &RPG maps, Jared Blando
OK folks, this is your place to get it out of your system. Post fakery, pranks, wild exaggerations, and all that happy stuff. Bonus points if it looks like an actual press release. Keep it family friendly and remember the board rules, and keeping chatter to a minimum would be appreciated - we already have a Randomness thread. This thread will be locked as close to midnight EST as I can manage, which probably means around 8am tomorrow morning.
