Finished the 5 fish men. Worked on my Secret Sophie for a while.  Primed the Spirits of Winter, Summer and Autumn, though I don't know how much paint they'll see.  Going to try and finish Legolas tomorrow, and maybe something else that already has paint on it.

It's beginning to look a lot like fish-men

Everywhere I go;

From the minute I got to town

And started to look around

I thought these ill-bred people's gillslits showed.

I'm beginning to hear a lot of fish-men

Right outside my door,

As I try to escape in fright

To the moonlit Innsmouth night

I can hear some more.

Well... that was a bust... but I did learn a few things:

Painting a few hours per day is fine and can be done most days.  Painting a few hours per day several times per day leads to debilitating pain... particularly in my shoulders.  

This tells me I need to modify a few things:

1 - More daily stretching and working out.  Most likely my pectorals are too tense and my shoulders are compensating and failing under the stress.

2 - Need a new chair.  

3 - When doing prolonged attempts, set a timer to do shorter intervals with longer breaks.


All told I got skin tone on over half of the black plague zombies (some with up to three coats... ugghh...)

I also got to rearrange the living room... which was unexpected.

Downgrading the WIP to a standard one and not a Binge one...

Yeah, it's something you want to be in shape for. Sitting in the same position for hours can be a real strain on certain muscle groups.  I didn't get much done yesterday for the same reason. 


Down to the final hours. The challenge ends at midnight tonight!

Ok, got the photos of two more off the camera. Of course there were huge glaring bits that are awful because I was in a hurry.


Not a reaper mini. Messed up the base and the face. 



A Bob Rudolphi I picked up at a paint and take.

I can't help picking it up if Bob did the sculpt.
