I did a quick version of this dumpster. There is a photo of the dumpster pre-graffiti, and pre-distress in WIP here.
It only needs to be sealed and glued- so now's the time to make any final suggestions.
I decided to go light on graffiti, though it could use more.

 

Doing bubble lettering was much harder than I thought it would be. I found a handy tutorial on Youtube. I had a general idea of what I was doing, having worked on a documentary for a mural program with a local community centre... but that was 5+ years ago, so I needed a refresher.

That said, I'm not sure how well I blended the 3 blues I used, or how visible the force was.

 

Graffiti:

 

Stage Right

CZP = ChiZine. A local small publisher of horror and dark fiction. I used to intern there a long time ago.

Lexo = Me

 

Under the lid

PIA = Paranormal Investigations Association. A reference to Ian Roger's Blacklands stories

 

Top/Lid

Anarchy symbol = Gotta have one of those, right?

BFM = Boyfriend Material, another band I was in that you probably haven't heard unless you like obscure garage punk that's never been officially released.

 

Stage Left

Bitter City = An old band I was in that you wouldn't have heard.

88's = something quick and random. I recently watched Kill Bill so...

A brief hijack:

 

I got one of these last year at Reapercon, and at one point wandered around looking at dumpsters seeking inspiration and ideas. I took several phone pictures of particularly interesting looking dumpsters.

 

At one point, I noticed someone looking at me funny.

 

Suddenly, my mind flashed into a parallel reality in which I was sitting in a little room explaining to police officers why I thought this dumpster was so fascinating that I had to take a picture of it...

Cool.

 

I've painted one myself, and it is part of my diorama in wording ( WIP Street Violence if you want some inspiration).

My version made the store to my surprise.

 

 

It's a great versatile model.

 

Can't wait to see how you will paint it.

I used Google. 'Twas very effective.

I'm not sure I understand

 

Bump for paint colors.

As a former battalion anti-terrorism / force protection officer I probably would have contacted the MPs and counter-intelligence personnel if it had been on post.

It looks pretty convincingly like a rusty, old dumpster.

 

I'm not sure I can call that "beautiful", but it's very well done, and a great terrain piece!

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.

      So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.
