I need to borrow the electron microscope that Schubert uses to paint eyes just to get some eyes on these RBG figures!!!

I'd be happy if he'd just fill in the sclera. Hollowing it out looks great on an unpainted sculpt, but it's impossible to paint a sclera in a void.

 

Garrity does the same thing.

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

I just fill it in with gloss varnish.  I do it a little at a time and it fills up and self levels quite nicely.  It is painful when you have to carve something off.

Takes notes. The eyes are the most intimidating part of them. I'll give that trick a try, when I get around to actually starting one. Soon[tm]

I was going to try a wee bit of GS next time I tackle one. In fact, since I'm (slowly) assembling Mierce's Seza with lots of GS work, I should pull a RBG sculpt to try it on while I have some mixed...

 

What a sneaky way to get me to prep another Tre sculpt :p

I have such trouble filling small spaces with GS that I don't like to use it for eyes.  I'm more likely to end up with a sloppy mess than something that will be a good surface for paint.

I actually have done this previously with another Reaper sculpt and am less intimidated to do such a thing. 

 

Bad Betty's face is done and I'm very pleased with her half-orc skintone that I achieved. On to Red Meghan's face.

Now there are THREE pictures in the thread.

 

I worked more on the barbarian tonight. Photos are garbage, but I am about to go to the realm of dreams so I didn't want to spend too much time before hitting the hay.

 

Based the skin with tanned skin, his torcs in ruddy brown (they'll be gold later on), pants in highland moss, leather skirt in dune shadow, laid my eye foundation with ruddy brown, goatee got a mix of blond shadow and auburn shadow, which I then went back over with pure blond shadow, the fur got a basecoat of aircraft grey. 

 

I forgot to take a photo of the back, but his bag and wine skin got based in ruddy brown as well. 

 

I think that my plan will be to paint his leather cuffs, boots, and belt as harvest brown or maybe oiled leather, and then shade up and down accordingly to get a nice worn leather look. 

 

The fur will see lots of light glazes and washes of different browns and greys to get a good looking fur going, hopefully, I struggle with fur mightily some times.

 

I'll be working the beard up to a bright blonde.

 

Ideally I'll be able to work the skin up to a pale nordic look, but we'll see how that execution turns out. His pants I intend to go for a pale faded green. 

 

There's a nasty mold line on his inner right forearm that I just couldn't get at, so I'll just have to live with that one I suppose.

 

Anyway that was a ton of words for two measly photos :P

      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.
