Did some work tonight during Dungeons and Dragons, again my photos are not so hot but I did some pretty good work tonight. Particularly happy of Red Meghan's face, but I couldn't get a good photo of it so you'll just have to trust me and the bad angle shots.

 

Just worked on Ullir's skin and face, and Red Meghan's face this evening.

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

Forgot to take photos after I finished taking down the paint station cat enticement station, I think that I finalized Ullir's skin, maybe I'm sure I might decide to do more and mess up (I'm at that stage of the skin). Also did preliminary shading and highlighting on his pants, and painted his belt and bracers. I used harvest brown on his bracers/belt, and I'm not sure if it was the right choice. I have a lot of problems with that paint color, sometimes it works great, other times I struggle with it, hopefully it's just a minor struggle and I'll get it how I like. 

 

I put more layers of palomino gold for Meghan's padded/quilted armor, and also painted her gloves harvest brown, with the same concerns as noted above. Also hopefully smoothed out the skin even more on her face. I think that part of her is done and I'm real happy with it, or I am the moment. It's possible when I look at it tomorrow I'll not like it. Also painted her leggings with dark elf shadow. As it goes with miniature painting anyway. I'm waiting on a secret weapon order, but I've got a really good idea for a base for her and a broken Doric column.

I did some work this afternoon while my girlfriend was working.

 

I managed to get some super close ups which make everything look like garbage but that's the best I'm able to do with the tool I have (work iPhone)

 

One of the things I liked about the close ups, I think you can  really see the nice work I did on Meghan's face.

 

Work I did today:

 

Put down the metals on both miniatures (mostly because I just wanted to frame the face of Meghan)

 

Shaded the fur, leather apron, bags, belt, booties, and cuffs of our barbarian, blended his pants a little better (more work needed)

 

Did my initial shade on Meghan's quilted armor, gloves, and booties, very, VERY carefully painted and shaded down her chin strap.

 

Enjoy!

Sheesh, guy takes a day off to see his team lose in tragic fashion in the Superbowl and the thread drops to the second page. Some group WIP  :upside:

 

Just riffin' 

 

Here is my latest progress. I did shading and reclaiming highlights on Meghan's armor, and Ullir's hammer, and torcs. Spotted some spots where  I need to bring back his skin level because my shading got a little sloppy. The important thing, no metal flakes where they aren't supposed to be (except one of Meghan's bags). Also I just realized I need to paint Ullir's nipples. 

 

Thanks for looking!

I always Thought Ullr was a red head ... but he looks good in blond too.

 

Just wait til you see what I have planned for him...

 

Me, too! If I hadn't just done a shirtless RBG barbarian recently, Ullr would be on the workbench right now. But I do have the beginnings of his planning started (I email myself ideas and keep a log of them over time).

Ub3r, you did give me some RBG minis right? If so, I might jump in here.

 

I mean, I have a bunch of nice minis out of my trip, but I don't know the names for half of them :)

 

YES! I gave you a few  ::P:

 

Do it!! I think I even labeled (marked in permanent black marker) the RBG figures.

      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
