The elf goddess is awesome. I'd suggest a tad bit more shading along the inside of the left leg down near the knee. Looks like the staff isn't done yet and make sure to give her nails and/or nail polish.

Thanks! Yeah, I have not done anything but base coat the staff and leather but I should be able to finish them tomorrow. Stupid question, do you mean her left knee or the knee on our left looking at the picture?

The inside of HER left knee (right when looking at her in pics)

Got it, that's the knee I thought you meant but wanted to make sure.

I like the two minis diorama better.

That way the focus is more on the confrontation between the toad and the cat and I feel it is more intense.

 

When  you use all, the outcome of the fight is already decided.

3 against 1...The Toad won't stand a chance, so the threat and the suspense are gone for me then.

 

When facing off the Cat alone, anything can happen.

And I feel it is more exciting to watch.

 

My opinion, feel free to ignore of course.

I agree with Xherman; the one on one version looks a little more intense.

 

Your ladies both look amazing; good call on the yellow glaze, she looks soo much better with it.

Given the pictures, consider mouse and cat vs toad with no rabbit, and replace the rabbit with the sign.

 

I was considering this and with some different positioning it could work.

 

 

two minis is better for the bridge.

 

The feathers look much better now as well.

 

I definitely like the current feathers more than my previous version. The colors still work and as she is a wood elf goddess it would make sense to have the bright green of spring as well as the warmer colors of fall.

Excellent point on the suspense with just two.

 

I am still leaning heavily on just the two but it is hard to let go of my original vision. I think my biggest issue with visualizing the final look is that everything is still in the early stages. When I look at just the two, I am worried that the base could overwhelm them but I think that thought is being fueled by the fact that everything is pretty much the same colors right now so it all just blends together.

Thanks! I am still amazed on how perfect the yellow ended up being. I liked the green before but it was just not popping like I wanted. This though, is exactly what I was after.

Alright, I finally got things done that will facilitate the linking of Gen's progress. From the first post in this thread:

 

My Open entry is:
Hasslefree HFX004 Gen. I will need to link her actual pictures as she is nude. I am going to be converting her into a blue fairy. I have removed her horns and will be adding fairy wings.

 

I have gotten her skin done. I used RMSP True Blue shaded with RMSP Royal Purple. This left her smurfy so I gambled and glazed over everything with RMSP Vampiric Skin. It worked so I continued glazing with the three colors and ended with a skin tone that I am really happy with. Of course it does look a lot better in hand especially as glazing with the Vampiric Skin makes it almost color shift. So the first link picture is of the original sculpt from Hasslefree's site and the second is how she stands now.

 

Original

 

Finished Skin

I'm alone on this, but I like the group rather than the duet; re, the base seems too big for just two minis.

While I'm here I might add the all your creations are GORGEOUS...OUTSTANDING WORK!

Thanks! The base being big is one my concerns as well but I think with the addition of the sign and foliage, it should fill out. I could also add in a broken down wall which was in my original plans when I was using a bigger base, the mouse would have been on it.

Thanks, I succeeded in reaching my goal then. In person the effect is really interesting and the blue is even more subtle from certain angles.

      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!

      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.

      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

      Here is the Tiefling Sorcerer I just started working on for my next D&D campaign. My lovely wife is a writer and helped me with the backstory. Take a gander at the backstory and let me know what you think if you'd like... Otherwise, just take a look at the figure and follow along.  I've been going back and forth with whether or not I should cut his horns off to fit the backstory or not.

      Hey all! Time for the 2019 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards previously, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins, and this year there will be a ribbon for doing that. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Each year there are more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happens more often than I thought it would each year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 17th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. If a mod would auto-lock this thread on that date, that would be appreciated. Once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Saturday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me if I don't have one already or your appearance has shifted drastically, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I have my ReaperDex/"cheat sheet" of sorts on my phone to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. Having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!
