She was stunning! Congrats on the well deserved gold. I remember when you handed her to me to take a photo I had to ask if you sculpted her as I thought perhaps I somehow missed her release. Thanks for posting some of the process it is an interesting read, and of course bringing her to the show for us all the marvel at. Just lovely.

you have no idea how disappointed I am that there is not going to be a line of Pathfinder busts now....

 

Lovely work however, I can't give this nearly enough likes for what it deserves.

 

Thanks!

 

Maybe after I resculpt her, and fix all the mistakes that I know I made with her, I could try twisting somebody's arm at Paizo (not likely).

Great work, again!

Glad we had a chance to talk about it in more detail after you won your gold medal.

(And you're inspiring me to sculpt a bust of my own.)

I look forward to seeing what you come up with next, whether at this large scale or something smaller.

This was great (especially for a first attempt). I am excited to see what you do with the lessons you learned and improvements you want to make. Aside from the self critique you already mentioned I would add to watch for the lower eyelids. If they are too pronounced on female characters it tends to make them look old or unfeminine. Thanks for sharing your processes!

Also, this wasn't a first attempt. I don't want to give anybody some unrealistic expectations of me. ;)

 

There were 2 other head/torso sculpts that I almost finished before realizing how horribly off-course I had gone. There were also probably at least 7 decent revisions, too -- things where I'd wake up the next morning, and cut off her nose, so I'd have no choice but to redo it after I got home from work.

 

That was probably the biggest thing I learned on this project -- not just being even more critical of myself, but being able to readily accept that last night was just a learning experience, and that tonight might be a learning experience, too. And maybe tomorrow night will also be a learning experience. And the night after, and the night after...

      Hey its buc. I have run games of Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon and the Reaper online conventions. Is there enough interest for me to run Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon in person this year? Would it be better to put my effort into Stargrave and or Frostgrave?

      I was considering running a game at Reapercon this year (assuming it happens). Is there interest in Stargrave as a convention event? Are other people planning on running the game at the convention?

      Hello everyone, today is a Pathfinder day. I did my best to paint it as faithfully as possible respecting the original artwork colors. This is the metal version 60136, Aglanda the herald of Razmir sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It's also available in Bones plastic under sku: 89040.

      So i've got that trio of spiders from nolzur's.
       

       
      They do not come with sculpted bases - unlike most of the nolzur's line.  This isn't a huge issue, except that these suckers have a bunch of tiny spindly legs.  I am worried about getting a good hold.
       
      So I have a few questions:
       
      1: how to fasten these guys to a base?  Just glue the legs and hope, or pin them through the body like a flightstand?
      2: how to sculpt/or assemble, suitable bases to compliment their spindly nature and ensure a better hold.
      3: how to attach the spider in a way that I can paint underneath it OR should I find a way to glue it down after both parts are painted?
       
      So the webbed victim shown in the photo above I have decided to leave out as a piece of scatter.  There is a stone base (not pictured) that I have already glued to a reaper base for one of the spiders.  Each of the spiders has a slightly different pose with their legs - which is made worse by them being bent out of shape.  I'm hoping to use this as an advantage though, and pose each spider differently.  One is rearing back with front legs up (this one I plan to glue to the supplied rocky base with the abdomen glued to the ground for extra support.
       
      Another spider has one side of legs kind of bent under a bit.  I'm thinking this would look good mounted sideways, crawling up the side of a fallen log (not sure if I should try to sculpt this, or find a twig to glue to the base).
       
      The last spider is pretty neutral, but I was thinking of posing it climbing down something just for variety.
       
      Any advice about sculpting the bases vs gluing organic material or mounting something with narrow points of contact would be tremendously helpful.  My indecision has lead to two weeks of no painting.
