So very much work to be done...I hate WIP stuff...

Alright friends! Off to bed for me seeing as how I have critically ill patients for whom to care in the morning. A parting pic of the continued effort on Betty.    Will work on a quick blend before

Some more progress on detailing Betty tonight by shading her metal darker with Dark Elf Skin glazes and other little touches here and there.    Used Muddy Brown to start picking out elements of Reyv

Posted Images

Here's the start of Ingvar, Hughbert, and Garrett. 

 

I will try and do better with this trio with respect to my painting process.

 

Tonight they each got a primer coat, some green stuff to add a bit of terrain interest and one wash:

1) Hughbert - Jungle Moss

2) Ingvar - Redstone

3) Garrett - Red Shadow

 

I'm going to slap some green stuff on the Bobby Jackson Ogre I also want to work on and then hit the hay.

This is really awesome to watch develop! Thanks for doing a more thorough WIP!

 

You're welcome! Please note that none of what I've done so far has accomplished anything other than to create some tone across each figure and that this process isn't a neat/clean process where things are distinctively separated along partitioned lines of color; like color blocking. However, each figure is starting to take on a different mood that I want to create and enhance.

 

Garrett's tone is getting more menacing and dark, but has red to 'feel' like passion and violence.

Hughbert is cold and metallic, calculating.

Ingvar is toning warm and daring, and should fit nicely with his planned base.

Adrift - I REALLY like your style of painting, it's very harmonic and cool. Teaching me a lot just by this small WIP you've been doing and I'll have to take some of your techniques and apply to my own repertoire. 

I'm happy to help. I'm not on the level of a lot of painters out here (Derek, Proctor, Corporea or a Wappel) so I just never felt like it was appropriate for me to do something tutorial-ish. I've worked on Grim Garrett a couple hours today while my son is in school and have snapped transitional pictures with the iPhone along the way so I'll be able to post those with specifics about what colors, how many layers, etc.

Level has nothing to do with being helpful and doing tutorials... if you are willing and someone else can use your help, it's all we need. I made tutorials  :devil:

 

I think your approach is very interesting to see, how you develop color harmony and feel, and it certainly has sparked some ideas in me so, the more we can see of your progress, the better!!

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.

      Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work

       
      Mar 1:  base GS sculpting
