Ale Wagon & Food Table vignette. This is the (3rd) of 7 vignette pieces that will make up the traveling Gypsy market. It is complete except for the edge ground cover work and the addition of some ale mugs sitting on the table...and the final seal spray of the whole vignette piece...The piece is a (4"x6") vignette built on ceiling tile,

At 4"x6" these photos are almost life sized on my monitor. Really, your work is amazing.

Pingo, I really appreciate your comments on my postings. I look for/to feedback comments on all my postings because I do pick up a lot of ideas from what the members say...but...actual feedback comments tend to be scarce...as noted in the past 2 postings...(Fortune Teller posting = 149 viewings & only 6 comments) and (Tarot Card posting = 73 viewings & only 1 comment). Again, I thank you for your active participation in my projects!

Another great piece! Regarding feedback as pertains to this piece, I think the flames for the campfire are a bit too red and you might want to weather the wagon wheels bait, but that is just my two cents American. Having been on forums since the dark ages, I say don't get too disappointed by the lack of feedback, people might be afraid to criticize others work for fear of starting problems

Thanks captenglish. This is what I mean by feedback. What color ink should I add to subdue the red in the flames (yellow or orange)?...Since these are playing pieces (not show pieces); I have tried to keep them very clean (have not done weathering on any of the farmers market booths or the gypsy market items)...but I appreciate you making that point.

 

I am an old head and do not mind criticism (if it is honest and founded)...otherwise I just take what is stated...evaluate the contents and act upon it in the proper manner. Model building and figure painting are like opinions (everyone has their own...usually based upon their bias)...so I tend to approach all such received opinions with an open mind (mine) and try to see what others say from their minds eye!

I must admit I enjoy admiring your pieces of art, but do not have any experience in terrain building so don't really feel I have anything to add in terms of comments & suggestions.

They certainly look fun and very fiddly to build.

I like this scene quite a bit. It tells the story well.

 

For the fire I would stay away from red and go with white in the center where the fire is hottest, slowly fading to yellow and then orange.

Hmm, some feedback for the sake of feedback:

I agree with the red fire and the weathering of the wagon, it looks spookly brand new*.

 

Where are the flageons of ale, btw? What about adding a few broken ones to the lower parts of the wagon, abandoned in a drunken stupor? :)

 

*I recently ran a few sessions where they would have almost exactly stuff like that. In a desert area, sealed off from the rest of the world, there lived a bunch of cultists, living of food-cloths-stuff resetting traps. They did have a lot of mass produced stuff, but were terribly, terribly, bored of the stew and bread provided ;) Most of their stuff looked like it came of the assembly line!

Darsc...Thanks for the great fire pic/closeup...I have tried the white center...I use cotton to form my flames and in this small scale...leaving the center white gave me results that did not look at all satisfactory...the end results looked like I did not paint parts of the cotton...any suggestions?

Dibbler...Thanks for the feedback. In regard to the red of the fire (see my reply to Darsc). In regard to the weathering of the wagon (see my reply to captenglish). In regard to the mugs/flageons of ale (see my original text about finishing touches on the table).

Your welcome.

 

Only suggestion I have would be to try making the fire out of modelling putty. Beyond my skill level though.

 

If you're sticking with the cotton and leaving it plain white in the middle doesn't work, how about giving that part a light drybrush of yellow and then go to yellow and then orange at the edges.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
       
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.

      Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I.  He had a very bent sword, so I swapped it with one from the Bones III weapon sprue.
