I have been working on this cat all week, having a blast.

I'm not going to make this a "WORKING WIP", just figured  I would post what I am doing

when I get the chance.  As usual, the anthropomorphic figures are highly entertaining.

I continue pushing my envelope with each of these.  This one has OSL going in on face, book, hand and left shoulder.

Never thought I would be doing that actually.  Fur on this one is quite the challenge !  Don't let that angelic little face

fool you, he IS a warlock !

So here is what I have been working on !

A little more details added, and trying to work out how high to bring the highlights, and the shoes.

Blend, blend, blend, blending !!!

I'd punch up the values even more on the OSL and darken below where it's going to touch, really show off the light.

i feel a bit like a calibrating machine this morning.  I've been working up and down the color values on this mini

for quite some time.  Thank goodness I use washes.  I've darkened up the shadow areas, and raised the value on the reflected light on

the Cat.  This is a slow process, but rewarding when you get that balance right.  Sometimes it just doesn't feel right to have that dark right

underneath that bright spot.  So here he is after a lot of juggling around.

Thanks Gang;

I've just started working on basing.  I cut an 1 1/2 inch square piece of cork board, and placed a nickle over it, in my left hand.

I then took a scissors and cut all around the nickle holding the cork against it.  That fits PERFECTLY inside a 32 mm round base.

 I repeated the above nickle action to create another round to act as the base glued onto the 32mm plastic round.

I will cut out the center of the second round to create an even transition from the mini to the base.

I'll take a couple of photos tomorrow to show what I am talking about.

Okay, here are two more photos showing where I am at in this Mini.

I have glued one cork disk to the base, and glued the mini into the base.

I have cut the second disk to allow me to hide the remnants of the broccoli base that the mini

came with.  Using a pair of nippers taking VERY small piece off the base, drilling it for pins, and

letting it dry.

Now I can finish the glue up, and create something interesting for him to stand on !

Hope that helped.

Jay

He has a lot of character, seeing him this close, the face is stunning...love it.

Thank Xherman1964;

I found a setting on my camera that I have never used before, looks like it does a good closeup.

One of the reasons that I do WIPs is that they teach me to observe; but there is another side.

Sometimes I KNOW what I am doing, other times I know, but the material ISN'T LISTENING.  The second layer refused to play nice

with me, so I landed up using my nippers, a tweezers, and the back of a nail file to hold things in place as I mounted the cat warlock to

his base.  What looks like a piece of cake, probably tain't gonna be so.  That's experience talking !

He's ALMOST done..but not quite where I want him to be.

More on the base, more touches of paint.

Better Photos, can't get away from the dang camera work either.

This will give you a hint where I am off to.  More to go.

Thanks to the heavy rains, winds, thunderstorms, I had to stay indoors today.

That allowed me to finish Arthur, Grumpy Cat Warlock.

I just posted the photos in the Show Off forums.

Let me know what you think please.

Your comments and critiques are always welcome.

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.
