Well done Jay..   the remainder of his base blends in perfectly with the bark, and if I had not followed your WIP. I would not think it was there.

Thanks robinh;

Hiding the remnant base was a bit tricky, but lots of fun.  Making color choices to blend it in, with lots of the

base colors being mixed together to make it unified.  This was fun, and I am glad I made the WIP for folks to follow along.

Thanks for your support and comments.

Well done, Jay! That figure is absolutely striking.

So Glad you like him Klarg1;

This is one of those.. STRETCH out mini's, its going to make you grow !

Thanks for commenting.

 

Very cool. Nice use of color. 

Thanks Inarah. 

Since I mix my own colors, its great to see them come together right. 

Those oranges are a bear to do, and that blue was driving me to blending layer madness.

But it came together in the end !

Thanks again.

Sweet work!  I really like that base, and it really contrasts well with the cool blue of his cloak!  Great work!!!   ::):

Thank you Kuro for the very kind and supportive comment.

I watch your stuff in awe most of the time, so your comment made me smile.

I attribute the color contrasts to the time I FINALLY have spent relearning how to use my color wheel.

That whole figure is based on greens, and blues, and mixing in their complimentary colors.

I don't think I have ever used the wheel so much; but it WON'T be the last time that is for sure.

Thanks again

Fantastic work, Jay!

 

I love to see you challenge yourself and take chance and do new things with the basing. I enjoy the story this one tells.

Thanks so much Ub3r_n3rd !

Its great to have a fantastic cheering section when you set out into the unknown.

Your support helps me venture out there, and accept a crazy challenge to paint a base with lava flowing down it !

ROFL.  It has been terrific to do.  I really love looking at this one,

Jay

Happy to help cheer you on and see how far you've come!

 

You should do a new thread and show us your whole painted collection as you've done what, like 125-140 figures so far?

I think I have done 130 + or - in the last three years.

I miss that "continuous thread we used to have"... don't know if it even exists anymore.

I'll think about that Ub3r; I have a library of what I have done, but some of those photos are pathetic !!!

I was just thinking of a thread with just a few pics of the entire collection and then like your first figure and your most recent to show how far you've come since you started.

Brilliant;

Think that is something I can do.

I'll try to work that out !

      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.
