Thanks Pingo and Arc.

 

My husband took a few better photos for me so I edited the original post to show a close up of my gnome, it really shows the moss I added to his staff better i think.

WOW that Close us really shows off the detail! I am even more impressed!

Your creation is a CHARMING little piece in an idyllic setting. The brushwork, subtle palette, & LOVELY base are OUTSTANDINGLY WELL DONE!

The way you handled the subdued palette is marvelous. And that base-it's perfect for him. The little squirrel was a brilliant idea and brought the scene to life.

Thanks everyone for each and every comment, I quite appreciate them all.

 

Clever crow I admire your work and it is your base work that has inspired me and I am sure many others to try to push my base work. Now if only I could get the opportunity to take a class from you.

      Sculpted by Patrick Keith.  Having fun experimenting with yellow shading and GW Contrast paints.  No basing yet, all my stuff is packed.

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      Last new show off from me for a while.
       
      I finished him a while back.  
      His WIP is here.

      I initially wanted to paint orange.  That got me thinking of a sunset color scale.  It came out OK, but the process was harder than I thought it would be.  Also, I’m trying to go through old Bones faster, but this was taking too long!
       



      A shot of his Fireball scroll.
      I went with burnt out candles to avoid needing to worry about OSL.

      I tried to pattern the feather as an owl feather.
       
      Hope you like it!
      C&C welcome.

      Subtitle: Whaaaat!?  Pendrake painted something?
       
       This was an exercise in improvisation. People like to use the google hangouts to have painting sessions. But, all my painting stuff normally lives in the next room away from the computational machine. But some of it had gotten waylaid and dropped off in the wrong room so I decided to see if I could manage something. @knarthex was in the hangouts painting tiny CamelFlag patterns on tiny NATO troopers at the same time. 
       

      Here is Galladorn getting a bath in Simple Green diluted with water. The plastic bag is the type I use mostly for sorting Miniatures. File this under: how to mess with gooey-green cleaners and stuff near expensive equipment. 
       
      Next he got buried in paper towels to dry off.

      Once, there was an artificer. A half-orc, a genius. He could make creatures of metal and wheels that seemed as alive as any man. His clockwork marvels were the talk of the province, and when an accident in his workshop took his arm off, he built a new arm of girders and cogs, stronger and more dexterous than before.  


      (More of this fellow if you click:)

      His fame spread far and wide, and one day a wealthy man, a captain of industry, another half-orc, asked him to build a weapon. He had many enemies--competitors, bandits, robbers--and also many people he wished to treat as enemies--unionists, agitators, and the like. 
      "What kind of weapon," the artificer asked.
      "The unanswerable kind" his patron replied. "Inexorable. Supreme."

       
      The rich man had a vision, which the artificer was happy to share, and huge sacks of cash money, which the artificer was also happy to partake of, having very little of the same, and a strong if wildly degaussed moral compass, which the artificer did not have at all. 

      And so the artificer consulted with other specialists, gnomish engineering savants and goblin pyro-sages (who also partook of the fat sacks of cash) to design this Ultimate Countermeasure. 

       
      It took a year and a day (and, some say, more than one apprentice) but at length the work was done. A steam-belching, boiler-powered fire-breathing dreadnought, an apex predator in steel and brass. 

      The patron was pleased.
       

      More: 
       
       
      It is said that the Engine of Malice produced had the strength of a team of elephants, and a breath like a blast furnace. It is also said that its brazen talons broke the Bloodgutter Strike a generation ago, and that this is why your parents cut their sausage with knife and fork, because the Butchers' Guild doesn't waste anything and you  really don't want to break your teeth on a brass button.
      It is also said that the Emperor conscripted the Engine to fight the foreign enemy during the Cruel Wars, as it was impervious to the miasmas and poison gases, and could roast whole squadrons in their trenches. 
      It is, notably, NOT said what happened the day it slipped a gear and went berserk. There were very few surviving eyewitnesses and none of them want to talk about it. Questions on this topic remain unanswerable. The Weapon remains at large.

      (I love the huge wings on this sculpt, but I'll never be able to compete with some of the canvasses other, better, painters have made of them. Also they are very rigid, so I removed them for future projects and took some pinewood derby exhaust pipes I found on clearance, some aluminium fencing wire, and a few eyelets. Gluing them on wasn't the easiest, and I used plenty of baking soda. This wound up looking like horrible overdone welds, but that's all right in context.)
