77372: Burrowing Horror - Finger Painted for the RPChallenge

Recommended Posts

I would have sworn you could not get that detail done with Fingers!    You must have itsy bitsy fingers!

 

Looks very good and even better knowing what instruments were used.

The Bulette turned out BEAUTIFULLYOUTSTANDING WORK!

What is more surprising than the WONDERFUL results you achieved with your fingers is why you would want to do it in the first place.

Guh...whu...buh...

 

THAT'S FINGERPAINTED?!?!?

 

 

That looks better than I could do with brushes and two weeks!

Daaaang, Guindy. 

 

Makes me think of this thing I read once:

The scene ends with an oddity that illustrates how much talent Mozart has to burn. Fred sings a slow, lyrical, irresistibly beautiful aria to Bill, suggesting that love is swell. And so it is. But the aria doesn't move the plot forward an inch, Bill doesn't need encouragement, and there's no homoerotic subtext (at least at the moment). So why is it there? Any other composer who penned such an aria would give it to the leading man to sing to the leading woman and make it the centerpiece. Mozart uses it like a comma.

 

Talent to burn.

 Guindy...

 

 Re: Getting paint in the crevices... Add a fair bit more paint than you think you'll need, as deep in the crevices as you can manage with a fingertip... And then BLOW on it. Hard. It'll push the paint down into them.

It's how I managed the two pieces I did in the original fingerpainting challenge.

 

Also, remember... Fingernails are part of your fingers, too.  ::P:

 

I may have to go dig through my remaining stuff and see if I have anything I want to do for the bonus challenges - I had so much fun when I did the fingerpainting thing the last time...

I am in no way, shape or form anywhere near on par with Mozart. So while I thank you for your way too kind comment, I will assume instead that your quote is referring to the homoerotic subtext in my painting, though it's certainly ever-present. ::P:

 

The teeth blow me away that they were fingerpainted. Thank you for sharing this.

So the teeth were what logistically gave me the most grief. I realized after the fact that I should not have brown linered them at all, but rather just left them Bones white and put a wash in there. I could only get a part of my pinky even slightly inside of the mouth, so that presented a pretty big problem. So the only feasible solution was to get a wash in there, however, when you dilute white paint, it tends to get pretty translucent. However, I have this line of Warcolours paints that are "ONE COAT" and there's a white in the line, so that's what I used. I thinned it down enough that it would have some movement to get itself everywhere in the mouth but not so much that it would run everywhere. (Incidentally, I didn't hit the consistency right and it did still run everywhere and I had to do a lot of clean up around the mouth but that wasn't too bad.) I believe I did this twice to get a decently solid white on the teeth themselves.

Then I did a wash of (I think) MSP Canary Yellow (pretty sure that's the yellow I was using to mix with the blues) but it was too faint and didn't really do much for anything. Then I made up my typical monster mouth pink (Warcolours Brown 1 and Warcolours Pink 1) and made a wash with that as well, but that was still too faint. So what I ended up going with was a wash of Warcolours Red 5, which ended up being perfect. There are also some purpley tones in there that were a happy accident of the wash of Warcolours Transparent Turquoise that I put over the armour parts leaking in there and blending some bits. It was lucky that it just so happened to dry looking like it does.

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.
       


      Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard
       

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard
       



      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.

      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.

      I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world.
      Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever.

      Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites.
       
      We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.
       
      As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges.
       
      FAQ
      Reaper only? - No.
      If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes.
      Are speed paints acceptable - Yes.
      Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes.
      Based or unbased? - Yes.
      Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes.
       
      NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy
      (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases)
      Medium and smaller = 1 ea
      Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea
      Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea
      Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea
      Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea
      Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up
      Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota
       
      Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures.
      If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II figures)
       
       
      If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually.
       
      Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more.
       
      You challenge begins...now!
       
      And Our Mantra:
       
       
      Participants:
      If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge
       
       
      The objective:
      To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota
      (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list)
       
      What qualifies:
      Darn near anything!
      Reaper/non-reaper!
      Any material!
      Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten!
      Exchange minis!
      Speed paints!
      Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well)
      Any Size!
      Based/unbased!
      Etc! (I think that covers everything)
       
      Year long challenge
      Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods
