FETCH!

Recommended Posts

Here's my entry in the summer painting contest. Hope you all enjoy it.

 

I entered in the diorama category.

 

Parts used:

02981: Lonnia, Female Duelist, sculpted by Gene Van Horne

I don't know the dog monster's number, it's a 2002 Reaper piece. Either that or somebody named "RMI" :)

Fantascape "Wyrdstone Mines" wm0009 base

 

When I saw the duelist figure I immediately thought about doing something like this with her. I was glad I got an excuse to help motivate me to finish the piece! I chopped off the sword and replaced it with some chain for jewelry making. Painting loose chain is a pain! It chips off terribly. I sculpted a collar on the dog using grey stuff and hooked up the chain after it dried.

 

Added a couple of layers of washes to the base and put on some flock to break up all the stone. I think I should have put more plants down.

very clever conversion :)

 

Thanks :)

My painting isn't always the best so I try to make up for it in other ways

Wow! At first glance, I wouldn't have suspected that this was originally a "duelist." The figure pose goes very nicely with the "animal-handler" look. I also really like the broken-flagstone look to the base.

This is really beautiful! The posing of the figures is just perfect and I think the paint job is really good - certainly up to the high standard you set with this conversion. The basing is simply amazing - that's an area I really have to work on.

Thanks. I've been buying a bunch of bases from nearly everyone who makes them. I have a couple of storage boxes full of them now.

When I get an idea I have a reasonable chance of finding something decent to put it on. It's a good investment if you're going to be painting a lot

Thanks cow! I'm not a very good painter, but I'm glad you liked it.

Nice work, I like the white pants. You did a good job on removing the broccoli bases.

My only critique will go to that long mould line along her waist scarf.

 

Congrats on the win!

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

      I started a challenge so naturally I couldn't stay behind myself.
      Meet Agent Anthrax, my first 3D print now painted for the challenge.
       
      I figured he also deserved his own Show Off.

      For my Pandemic Challenge I decided to paint this nice doggo with gasmask.
      It was the first mini that I printed with my Elegoo Mars Resin Printer.
       
      I'm giving him a spare resin base I had lying around.
      Started with Reaper Grey Liner.
       
      The Reaper liners are excellent primers for Bones , but also for Resin!!
