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

Adrift stuff is great!


I am very excited about where my barbarian skin is going. Saddly, it is so pale that the camera cannot pick up the nuances under my worklight... I am seriously baffled about it.


So you will just have to use your imagination for now.

Used Muddy Brown to start picking out elements of Reyviande and add some 'warmth' to his appearance.


I'm going to definitely add a little bit more warmth to Reyviande's face in his "shadows" to bring him more to life.

I felt like working on Reyviande some more tonight. Betty got some gentle glazing just to darken up her metallic elements.


Reyviande got lots of mahogany, rosy, fair skin and then white to highlight up some leather and then the inside of the cloak.

Wow yall! This is REALLY inspiring for me! I am SO gratified to see this kind fo enthusiasm for my sculpts! It is truly an honour and a priveledge to inspire such creativity and enthusiasm!


  I will be watchign this much more keenly. :)


The minis ub3r gifted me are nice... and I really want to see what you do with female barbarians!


I expect to work some more on my piece tomorrow; luckily since the skin is 98%, and this is a 98% nakes barbarian... well... I think I only need to do the eyes, hair and leathers. Easy  :;):

Willen I'd definitely like to see the animal pelt around his waist (currently white) deviate in color from his hair. Maybe make the pelt a dark brown against the tan of his battle kilt. Just my thoughts. 


I'm using my iPhone for WIP shots too.

Here are shots of Betty and Reyviande at a 'mostly complete' state. I'll probably play with some blending here and there to try and smooth out rough spots that I pinpoint with the camera but I'm feeling pretty good about them at this point. 


Thoughts, opinions and ideas welcome.


I haven't decided what pattern if any to put on the inside of Reyviade's cloak.


Tomorrow it's all about Meghan.

Painting these RBG figures is making me appreciate all the RBG figures I have that much  more and is driving me to go to work on more RBG figures as soon as I've knocked off some to-do 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

      — LONG BREAK —
      Aug 2:  skin lined, basecoated, and shaded

      Aug 6:  skin initial highlights
