Qesnef, Ogre Mage and Halfling Form

Recommended Posts

WOW!

 

I love these - Very cool to see something so stylized and visually impactful - The bold highlighting isa really effective choice as it increases definition and makes these really POP!

 

Plus simple things like one corner of a rug to make the ogre mage feel like he is connected to the larger world - nice touch

 

gorgeous!

I'll never paint this well in my entire life. So jealous...

That is what I said a few years ago and still say when I see others work. Practice, ask questions and listen to other Reaper member advice. I can still remember key things people said to me that helped incredibly.

The miniatures are cool, but the brushwork, basing, & colors make them  FANTASTIC creations. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Sometimes when I run across a Show Off posting, I have to study it for a bit, to learn technique. I pulled the photos and put a monochrome filter on them -- the tonal variance is perfect, going from black to nearly white in every hue used. The hatching adds texture that just doesn't exist in the model, and tricks the eye into thinking there is more blending of color than there actually is. And the selection of colors is harmonious; you definitely have a good eye for picking what colors will work together when going from shadow to light.

 

I only wish the the images were higher resolution, so I could study them in more detail.

Thanks!

I bought a wet pallette to help with blending that I am yet to use. Although I imagine it may slow me down even more. My buddy says I have my own style and not to bother with it.

Your buddy is right.

      Traveling Encounters volume 1
      Compelling 5th Edition Challenges For CR1 to CR5
       
      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      Here's some shots from the penultimate session of our D&D game.
       
      The party finally confronts the Sewn Sisters.
      The tiles are from "Dwarven Forge" and "Secret Weapon".  The tables, chairs, and most props are from "Mantic:Terrain Crate", with the cauldron being from an Old Glory Crones set.  
      The Scarecrow & Leomon (Half-Elf Paladin) are from "Reaper Bones".
      The rest of the party are 3D prints, from HeroForge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala.
      The Sewn Sisters are 3D prints from DarkRealms.
      Everything was hand painted by myself.
       


       
      Cradle of the Death God.
      The tiles are Dwarven Forge.
      The party are 3D prints, with designs from Hero Forge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala. (One is a Reaper Bones piece)
      The Soulmonger is a 3D print designed by Miguel Zavala.  The God That Never Was is a 3D design by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.
      Everything was painted by myself.  I also added LEDs.

      This chaos toad was another one of my ReaperCon entries, this time in the Painter's category. As I had multiple entries in the category, only one was judged and this was not the one chosen. Even though it was not the one judged, it is one of my favorites that I have painted recently. It is a fantastic sculpt by @TaleSpinner with fun details like the shrunken head and turtle shell canteen.

      This was one of my diorama entries for ReaperCon featuring miniatures from Dark Sword Miniatures. I had diorama ideas centered around the female figure occupying my mind for a while before I settled on this one. I tried a few other figures with her but nothing fit until I got the male figure and then added the wolf. I am very happy with how it came together and was very pleased that it received a Gold medal in the Diorama Category. I also was honored to receive second place diorama from Dark Sword.

      Hey everybody!
       
      Tried to get the word out by word of mouth, and decided on here might be a good way to go about it as well. The tables for gaming had to be altered from what was on the printed schedule due to some logistics issues. (Logic?! At a con?! Say it isn't so.)
       
      Games on GrowTix should reflect accurate locations (and hopefully always reflected accurate times). Also, there are printed schedules available on the table just beside registration. ALSO, ALSO, I attached the Xcel spreadsheet of the schedule if anyone wants to peruse.
       
      Joseph Wolf's Dreadmere games are still at Table 1 - under the big Dredmere banner. Tables 2 ,3, and 10 are various Roleplaying games, as per the schedule Table 4 is an all-day, every-day Freeblades demo - drop by and check it out! Tables 6 thru 9 are for Gamers looking for Pathfinder/Starfinder D&D Adventure League is now tables 11 thru 23, but Gamers taking part in DDAL are encouraged to head to Table 18, where Colby (and crew) will be marshaling GMs, getting players into games, and generally just controlling the madness of League events. Tables 24 thru 28 are going to host Frog God Games (in the Arabian rooms) ReaperCon 2019 Gaming.xlsx
