UPDATE!!! Put first coat of sealer on the Mini! Gonna check and see if/where a second coat is needed when I get home. Got a Protective system planned for sending it through the Postal Service Soccer League! Package should go out Monday after I show it off at my Saturday Gaming Session!

 

Also, I will be traveling at the start of the month of March for a much needed rest in Florida! I'm not taking ANY painting gear along! So it will be Sun, Fun and Portable Gaming for 2 whole weeks! And a concert at a festival! And our own personal Heated POOL at the House we are renting! Hoping to have a good one:)

I have been fighting sinus migraines. These make it difficult to do much. Also noticed the cats had knocked the mini about enough to damage a teeny part of the paint. Fixable but :grr:

 

The longer this takes the more frustrated I get with myself. However, a passing glance at the mini today had me thinking "I did that?"

 

So, at least if I'm saying such thing about it already to myself, I am nearly, almost, hopefully assured my partner will like it.

According to my sister in law, she dropped off the package with the post office. I'm not sure though. She cannot find a receipt or tracking information. I'm really hoping my partner's box isn't lost. :(

Need to rethink my colors...

 

Stop looking at me like that. Stop it!!!

 

I am using colors that are not the same range, or close to it even, and when flipped to black and white the midtones and highlights blended into a single tone. I need to alter the levels. Going to take a more recent photo with the shadows and see how it looks. It could be just a "doing this in stages" thing that is throwing things off.

 

May need to bring Pingo in for advice :unsure:

Calling on the gods of color for assistance!     Take your time, play with it, experiment..   enjoy the process.

      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!
