2015 Secret Sophie / Winter Exchange - CHATTER Thread!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the wonderful miniatures Pochi! They were well worth the wait, you have serious talent!

I tried taking pictures but the lighting isn't very good, i'll try and take better ones this weekend unless you have some pictures handy. I've never been a fan of gloss but let me tell you it looks awesome and my wife loves them.

 

The honey looks yummy as well, it will go well with my oatmeal i'm sure!

My pictures didn't turn out great. I was in a rush to get them in the mail so didn't want to wait days for it to stop raining here to get nice outdoor light. I think I am going to break down and build a light box!

 

It was just funny because before partners were assigned when everyone was saying what they do and don't like to eat and you said something like "I run marathons so nothing fatty. Something high in carbs to eat before I run would be good." I told my husband, "You watch. I will get the marathon guy!" Just because there are so many cool snacky things here in Oz like Tim Tams and stuff but all chocolatey and fatty. I am not good with coming up with "healthy" Christmas snacks that will also pass customs in Australia AND Canada! Glad the honey made it through. One of my friends scared me and said I couldn't send honey so I spent a lot of time looking at customs websites!

 

If you can't get good pictures, I will post my shabby ones!

 

Whew! I can relax now!

No pictures last night. Was trying to clean up my painting area. Why do people keep piling their crap on my paint table? :grr:

 

Will try and get pictures this weekend.

 

On my SS project: I am way behind but steadily working on it. If, at this time, my partner wants to know exactly what the elf I'm doing I am open to putting up a WIP. I've been taking progress pictures.

Yes I did take a couple. If you have better feel free, but I did take pictures. I kept calling her Krysta Klaus, Guardian of the North Pole in my my head while painting her...

      I managed to get my winter exchange piece and gifts to vegascat in time for Christmas. Since he sent me a heartfelt thank you directly and I know she made it I wanted to post up some of the photos I took before mailing her off. I will let vegascat share photos of the gifts if he chooses and just post the painted miniature. I had alot of fun painting her up and quite enjoyed keeping her to a limited palette. I am happy he likes her and that she made it safely during a busy mail time.
       
      Here she is on her scenic base alongside the Golem Familiar from 02826.

       

       
      And I wanted to keep her removable in case he wants to use her for gaming.

       
      I enjoyed painting her quite a bit I think my favorite part was her skin, I used a bit of purple pink in the shadows which I think shows better in hand and then glazed it with a rosy flesh to help make it a bit warmer while still looking cool overall. I will have to pick her up again and paint one up to keep, she is just too pretty of a sculpt not to.

      So, Dispatchdave painted me up a couple of minis for the Winter Exchange. These things are... I cannot express just how much I love these.
       
      The colors used on Darkrasp are gorgeous. I love his skintone in particular. The robes are wonderful and (since things were a bit rubbed off when he got here), I touched up his chains and scythe. I did the scythe with a very pale blue, white brushed on top in a streaky pattern.
       
      The visbaronesses face is my favorite bit (after that, the lovely autumn color selection). It's just stunning. the puffed up, slightly reddened cheeks, the perfect eyes, the amazing hair.
       
      DD, you've seriously made me happy. Thank you so much for the fantastic miniatures!
