As long as I don't get any hate mail after the fact, count me in (I still have my painters lerning permit). This sounds like a hoot.

 

Well, that's the beauty of an exchange. You can get feedback on your work, with lots of helpful tips, and see someone else's work up close and personal.

 

The two goals are to have fun, and to learn :)

 

There's no grades, and no worry about someone being disappointed.

 

Besides, some of the best inspiration I've gotten has been from a beginning painter who did something I would never have thought of.

Just do what I do, and include something like this:

I'd like to do this, but think I should wait until I've actually painted more minis. I will be watching with interest!

I loved participating in the last one! I'm totally in for this. It keeps me motivated and I push myself harder than when I'm painting just for myself. I'll shoot you a PM today.

@Argentee: Well, if you change your mind and want in on the fun, just PM me your info and you too can play!

 

@Shogan: Sweeeeet! The more the merrier.

I was thinking around end of November, beginning of December. Basically, after Thanksgiving, but well before Christmas, that way people don't feel overwhelmed and can get their holiday on in peace.

Actually, on second thought, let's just say by New Years. That way people have plenty of time, with little to no pressure, I figure if we can get them out around December some time, it might make for a nice holiday gift exchange!

Nonsense. My wife did her first ever mini for an exchange.

 

Like I said before, this isn't about being judged. It's not a contest. It's about having fun, and getting a surprise in the mail :D

      So, I'm working on a miniature for my Box of Many Things exchange partner, more commonly known as a "Thinger" among those long time participants. This happens on the Twitters and you can search for it by sticking one those hashtag/pound sign/number sign thingies in front of BoxofManyThings in the search thingy there. Basically, it is like a Secret Santa type thing for geeks and nerds that happens every couple months. Sign ups for the next one should start near the end of October, if you are interested.
       
      Anywho, my "Thinger" is interested in, among other things, Medusas. So, since I'm kind of not up to much due to a severe lack of AC at my place, I've decided to try to distract myself from the fact I am alternating between melting and immolating at this time by making a custom mini and painting it. Also, attempt to chronicle it too.

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

      Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 
       
      What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
       
      Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
       
      http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/
       
      If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.
