I have some time off of work with the impending holiday so as always, it's a perfect opportunity to chuck my marbles out the window and take on a paint slopping challenge!
 
If you're not familiar with the Purple Cat Challenge, I highly recommend that you head over here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71342-introducing-the-purple-cat-challenge-mashaaf-in-5-days-wip/page-1 where you can see OneBoot establishing the challenge and defeating Mashaaf herself!
 
Who wouldn't want to take on a challenge set forth by a purple kitty?
 
So here are the roolz:

1) Thou shalt not use any brush larger than a standard size 0. 0 shall be the number on the brush, and the number on the brush shall be 0. 1 shalt thou not use, neither use thou 2, excepting that thou ensures that it is actually 0/2 on the brush. 5 is right out. Once the size 0, being the correct number, be reached, then lobbest thy size 0 brush towards thy foe, who being made of Bones, shall be painted.

2) 5 full days (120 consecutive hours) from when the timer starts are all the time that is allowed in this challenge; whether that time is spent working, sleeping, painting or sobbing uncontrollably is up to the participant.

3) Boiling and scrubbing the model to remove casting residue are the only prep tasks allowed prior to the timer being started. Removing mold lines, greenstuffing or otherwise altering the original sculpt in any way beyond factory spec is prohibited.

4) The timer starts with the posting of a picture of Mashaaf and my intended brush(es) to be used and a device bearing my local time. The challenge will therefore end at the same time 5 days (120 consecutive hours) later or whenever I complete the task prior to time running out.

 

 

You guys know how I roll. I'm not even slightly prepared for this (or am I? :rock::;): ) as my life is a slow crawl of constant disasters. My desk is as much of a wreck as my brain. I did, however, actually take Mashaaf out of her little baggie and dry-fit her though! But she needs some serious boiling if she's ever going to stand upright. And I'm still at work and will be for several hours. So my best guess is that I'll probably be officially starting on her tonight somewhere around 7 or 8pm CST!

Excellent!  Looking forward to this... now we will see if Live Photos can be shared on a Forum...

Hmmm... well... maybe somebody needs to get on that.  Live Photos would be fairly cool in WIPs.  Someday

Remains to be seen. I get randomly very grumpy during challenges and without colonists or colonial marines around to take out my fury on, hangoutians beware. ::P:

OK. My phone didn't want to send me the picture and I had to try to make sense of Windows 10 to get to the picture so it took me forever to get it here.

 

But I have begun!

Brown linering is done!

I spent about an hour on the mold lines. Of course now that she has brown liner all over her, I can totally see all of the ones that I missed but that's how it always goes, right? Oh well.

 

I'm going to take a break for a bit, which might turn into passing out on the couch. We'll see.

Since removing mold lines is optional in this challenge, you're ahead of the game.  

 

Do you have a palette picked out?
