@malefactus I love your mushroom world! These are wonderful. Also, are you familiar with a kids song about the muffin man? I shall alter it: "Do you know the mushroom man, the mushroom man, the mushroom man? Do you know the mushroom man who lives on Reaper Lane?" TADA! 

 

Thanks for the kind reply, Cyradis. I am happy you enjoy my stuff. 

AND I remember that song or one very like it. I used to sing to my boys when they were little people a long time ago.

Thank you for showing me! That looks so amazing! I only have a few little pieces as props and such but would love to have a nicer photography set up. The only problem is space at the moment. A hobby room is already planned in though if/when we end up buying a house.

You are most welcome. I am delighted you like it. Space is one of the reasons I foreshortened the photo boards. 

It does seem that no matter how much space I have it isn't enough. What I need is a little living space with an attached aircraft hangar...one made for a blimp would be ideal...maybe two blimps.

Creepy crazyness at its best! As always your painting brings a smile to my face that lingers for a good deal... Is it the paint job or your postive energy that does the trick I am not sure but your work is always like an afternoon sun appearing after a torrential rain..

 

Keep em coming Malefactus, let the sun shine in!

He is awesome! Your woods need a little candy coated house with a...grandmotherly (HA!) figure who lives there and 2 children walking down the path leaving a trail of breadcrumbs!

 

Thanks for the kind reply, Pochi. I am delighted you like him.

The place could stand a Grandma in The Woods & her cottage...complete with oven & cages.

Thanks for the enthusiastic reply, VolksFest. I am happy that you have such an up reaction to my stuff.

I do think my colors reflect my mood. In the grim past, I tended to do darker colors...long ago.

I will keep it coming...I get into trouble when I 'm not busy with something or other.

Thanks, LarsM. I am glad you share VolksFests feelings on the subject.

I have those "that was what I wanted to say moments" myself.

That is brilliantly creepy, and beautifully photographed.  That mushroom has so many eyes it seems more a gestalt than an individual.  Thanks for sharing!

 

...he could be the group spirit of Mushroom Kind or, more likely, something strange Mom was absorbing for lunch prior to the spore thing.

Thanks for the kind words, Pingo. The Spooky Woods Photo Stage is working out pretty well AND The Camera of Continual Contrariness is being a good girl lately.

I am really happy you like the Mushroom & the photos.

I think this delightfully creepy fellow is one of my favorites! With so many eyes and arms, he's such a unique fella with lots of personality! ^_^ Excellent work, as always! 

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

Thanks for the kind reply, OneBoot, He is one of my creepier creations; I am happy you enjoyed that. Grotesque has its charms also.

      How do you make an octopus laugh?  You give him ten tickles!

      Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff.  I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once.  Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving.
       
      You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.

       
      I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned out.  It's not the most accurate, but I'm proud of it.  It definitely has given me greater confidence in my ability to make something out of nothing.

      Karla, Anime Heroine https://www.reapermini.com/search/anime/latest/50232 is a beautiful sculpt, but the miniskirt would raise eyebrows in my pulp/midcentury settings, so I gave her a bit of a hemline extension with GreenStuff.  I'm also planning to use some eyelets and pins to turn at least one gun into a syringe. Will post more as progress continues. Stay safe and healthy!

      Having just started a 45 figure batch paint of guardsmen, I decided a side project may be in order. Just a little something I could fiddle with off and on to disrupt the monotony and I knew just the project. 
       
      About a year ago, after I finished my first commissar,  I thought it would be a good idea to paint all my commissars differently. That way I could tell all of my HQs or elites apart, but wouldn't you know it after a couple games I realized it was completely unnecessary. Having already started down that path however I decided to press on.
       
      Within about the first week of pondering different color schemes I had a great idea. Unfortunately I lacked the skills and hobby confidence to attempt it. This past year I've managed to learn quite a bit though, especially about sculpting/working with greenstuff. So I think it's time to attempt a Hulk Hogan commissar.
      First up was locating a good reference photo for both his moustache and boa (see above).
       
      As the moustache was the trickier of the two I decided to start there. In a twist of fate getting a good texture was the easy part, but getting the proper size wasn't. After some back and forth I finally got the size correct. Then it was just a simple matter of using a pin and a toothpick to achieve a hair like texture. 
      This is what you get zooming in, but at a regular viewing distance I think it looks good. 
       
      Next came the boa. Try as I might I couldn't get a good feathery texture going. I could get a good amorphous blob/coral like texture though. Much like the moustache it'll fail upon close inspection but I think with a good paintjob it'll hold up just fine.  

      See I told you that moustache is passable with some distance.

      Now it's just a matter of letting everything dry before priming. I guess it's a good thing we have holiday commitments for the next couple days.
       
      As with any greenstuff project you always end up with some leftovers. After adding a skull to the Hulkster's base I thought I'd share the wealth with a few random models from my desk.

      Not sure if this belongs here or under conversions but since I need help/feedback on the sculpting, I figured here was better. 
       
      I am adding puffy sleeves to a figure and I am very much a novice when it comes to sculpting. I have been working on one and while it looks good to me, I need a second opinion. What do you guys think?

      Hi everyone, Now that the contest is over, here are more pictures of my converted 77038, Hell Hound. The original sculpt is by Ben Siens. This was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Convert and Paint contest. Khan is my elf riding dog in our D&D campaign. The contest was the perfect pretexte to make this conversion. I first removed all the spikes and flames on the hound's back. I then built the armor and saddle using green stuff and a paperclip. The chest is from Reaper's 02638, adventuring accessories. There were amazing entries in the contest and I managed to get an honorable mention. Thanks to Reaper miniatures and Matthew Clark for organizing this contest.
