Trees are looking good, and the bridge looks really great, looking forward to seeing how these all look put together!

Thanks! Obviously after our discussion Monday, I decided to go ahead with the tree on Gen's base. I am actually really happy with its structure, hopefully the willow leaves turn out alright.

 

I love those trees and bases!!

Thanks! Hopefully the painting and leaves turn out good.

 

Bridge looks awesome!

Milliput?

Or something else?

 

Thanks! The bridge is Hirst Arts pieces from their Fieldstone Bridge mold, #74. I had ordered a few castings to make sure I had enough pieces to do what I want, which was a good thing as this was my third attempt and I still wish I had done a couple of things differently. The grey color is from the Vallejo Sandy Paste that I spread on it to fill in the gaps between the pieces and to give it some texture.

I have finally started painting. Did some base coats on a few, nothing that warrants a picture though. Most of the progress has been on the elf's skin. The shading is still rough and there is only a little bit of highlighting. There are a few areas that need deeper shadows and most of the highlights need to be done. Also, the bases are all primed.

 

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Looking so good already!

 

Thanks! I am so happy with how it is turning out as skin has been one of my weaknesses. My light did wash the shading out in the picture so I am going to try to take a better one tonight as I am really happy with it.

Looking really good... are you sure you are not done on the skin?

 

The eyes are perfect.. the looking to the side seems to give her a bit of an attitude which is great!

Woah! Bravo on the eyes in one try!  I don't think I've ever or ever will manage that.  Liking the subtle shading on the skin.

 

I am still surprised I pulled it off, especially as her eyes are tiny.

The skin is close to being done. Just one more highlight in a couple of places, mainly the face. I may play with her back cleavage some more and I have done very little to the hands and feet.

So progress. The elf's hair is almost done, just need to glaze in some shading. The dark lining is also mostly done and the metallics and leather are base coated. I also have been working on the Kabuki Hunter. Clothes are base coated and I have been working on the skin. I was going to go with white hair but I think I will change it to brown.

 

Any feedback would be appreciated.

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      So I've been poking at this diorama idea for a couple of years, and it's morphed a bit since I first started it, but I'm thinking that I'm nearing the final composition. But... I'm beginning to second guess myself. 
       
      So, do you think this tells a good/clear story? 
      Should I remove the adventurers from their bases, or paint the bases to match the floor? 
       
      Any and all thoughts welcome!

      So I will be running the Hobby Hijinx corner at ReaperCon again this year. If you are not familiar with the corner, it is where Reaper offers free 1-2 hour paint and take events. We have the classic Paint 'N Take area as always, as well as the Sophie Says, traditional Speedpaints and the new Paint by Die Roll and Bones Mashup. 
       
      I will be updating this post as details are firmed up.
       
      If anyone has any ideas for the current events or new events, please post them here. 
       
      If you would like to volunteer to help in the Hobby Hijinx corner, please send me a PM with the days and times you would like to help and if you would like to be a helper or coordinator. Coordinators will be responsible for running individual events (all the supplies will be there) Helpers will assist coordinators. I will be the default coordinator for any event that doesn't have a volunteer

      Sophie Says
      A fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. Every participant will receive a certificate declaring how awesome and silly they are. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Sophie Says After Dark
      This is slightly more adult themed version of Sophie Says, a fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. THIS IS A PG-13 VERSION. ADULT BEVERAGES WILL BE ALLOWED AT THE TABLES AND THINGS WILL BE MAY BE MORE AWKWARD. Speed Paint
      All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush if they wish. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Once the time is up all painting must cease. All entries will be judged by specially selected stunt judge. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. All participants will receive a certificate to attest to grit and determination. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Paint by Die Roll
      This is a group skill building event rather than a competition. Step outside your comfort zone and paint with color combinations. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush and/or palate if they wish. All participants will receive the same mini, the group will then roll a d20 to determine which portions of the mini will be what color. Example: Last year there an ogre chieftain with Palomino gold skin, purple cloth, mint green metal, and pale lichen leather. Black, White, and Brown will be provided for shading and highlighting purposes only. Everyone will receive a certificate attesting to their willingness to try new things. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Quick Conversion
      Let your creativity flow as you cut, glue, and pin your own unique mini. Use a collection of Reaper minis and pieces to create something new. Will you come up with a goblin headed rogue, or a beholder mermaid? It’s up to you. This activity will involve cutting implements and super clue so we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Ed Sculpts are Best Sculpts
      When Reaper was a young company and sculptors could get first hand references for their dinosaur sculpts, now president of Reaper Miniatures, Ed Pugh, contributed to the product line by sculpting many of the skeletons. Come raise the dead and socialize with your fellow necroma.....painters. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

      Date: Sunday, Sep 1st
      Time: 6:30 PM
      Location: Houlihans (on-site restaurant connected to the hotel) 
      Dinner menu:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/dinner/denton
      Gluten-sensitive options (not guaranteed gluten-free):   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/gluten-free/denton
      Vegetarian options:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/vegetarian/denton
       
      Seating is INDOORS. 
       
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       
       
       
      It occurred to me out of the blue today that I've completely forgotten to call Houlihans (the on-site hotel restaurant) to see if seating for 30-40 people could be reserved on Sunday. 
       
      I did this last year, and from all reports this arrangement was well-received and convenient for everyone. 
       
      If there are no strong objections, I plan to call tomorrow (Monday) to see if such can be arranged again. I just hope it's still possible, it's getting a bit close...
       
      Last year I made the reservation for 6:30pm. For those that went last year, was 6:30pm a good time, or would earlier have been better? My thinking last year was that it would give some time after the auction for people to do some packing first (also gives a buffer in case the auction runs super long). 
       
      Looking forward to seeing y'all SOON!
       
      Huzzah!

      While @Pegazus's Forumite bingo helps, I am TERRIBLE about remembering names. I will totally remember your face and what we did three years ago but for the life of me I can't even remember the first letter of your name. I figured I'd make a cheat sheet where people could share a photo and name so people can have a refresher before the con. 
       

       
      Prefered name: Ludo
      Pronoun of Choice: He, It, Dude
      Huggability: Absolutely
