I tend to paint quickly, when I get bored of a figure, I finish it. At least to tabletop quality. Dragoth was the exception. I started planning a diorama with him at the center in october 2015 it would have been my first diorama. I stead I used the base for a mousling diorama. Dragoth was supposed to be in a scene with a dwarf cleric, treasure chest and a cultist. the cleric would be a source of light, and NNM would embrace the armor and weapons. But it never worked. I eventually tried to add a red/silver mix to his armor. This turned his armor pink. I threw up my hands and moved him to the back of the desk. Last month I thought well I will just cover his armor in black ink, and restart, but I liked the look of the ink. I added a fewdetails, did some lining and then went to work on his sword. Im proud of the sword.
At the Origins Game Fair last month, I took part in Reaper's speed-painting contest. I hadn't painted much all year because of a new job, but I wanted to jump back into painting with some necessarily fast work. Cheryl (LadyStorm) ran the contest. It was right next to the Reaper booth. As usual for Reaper's speed-paints, each contestant got a basic set of 12 paints (a combination of Master Series and HD) and 2 brushes. Paint colors: red, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, black, Caucasian flesh, orange-brown, dark brown, silver, and gold. I didn't use the silver or gold at all, because I didn't want to get shiny flakes polluting the water. As you can see, I relied heavily on the browns. Brush sizes/shapes: a larger flat brush and a smaller pointed brush ... except for Round 2. See below. So now I have 3 new Bones figures to show for about 3 hours of painting. Some of the paint rubbed off along the way back home, but otherwise they are unchanged. I'm not sure whether I'll clean up the paint jobs under better lighting and with better brushes, or just leave them like this. Anyway, here they are: Round 1: beastman warrior 2, Bones #77253. 45 minutes. Round 2 (semifinal): Bloodhoof, minotaur barbarian, Bones #77251. 50 minutes. The larger flat brushes used in the Round-1 heats had all gotten frazzled, and Cheryl wanted to save some new ones for the final round, so we got only 2 small brushes for this round -- size 5/0. It's tough painting a big figure with a tiny brush. Round 3 (final): Dragoth the Defiler, plus throne, Bones #77201. 75 minutes. I quickly realized that Dragoth wasn't permanently attached to the throne, so I pulled them apart, painted the two pieces separately, and then put them back together with a few minutes left. As you can see, his back is just plain black, but at least I avoided leaving anything unpainted and glaringly white. Thanks for looking! Derek
