Cyr didn't nitpick! A treasure chest.

So I decided to at least try to not nitpick something. This is the fastest I have ever painted an item. It took prpbably 30mins - 1hr, mostly due to paint drying before a wash. Paint was determined by "fits purpose and is in reach without seeking". 

 

Not my best by far, but it is an achievement for me to NOT nitpick things!

'Struth that this is better than my current "best effort" skill level.

You can do it GEM! 

 

This was base coats and sloppy washes :poke:

 

Dice ring is one I got at comiccon about 4 years ago. Always have it on. Never know when I'll need to roll. Also makes great twiddling.

I see nothing to nitpick on that chest.  It is lovely.    I suspect (like all of us) you are just to hard on yourself.  the results show you that you do great work even when you are not trying.

I have found it is best not to over think things. The Chest is a fine example of that. It is a simply BEAUTIFUL creation...a treasure. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks all ^_^

 

There are tons of things I *could* do with this... but I am resisting the urge. Rainbow dragon and Max Decker can get the nitpicking instead!

That's some fine booty right there. ::D:

 

I got the same pack of chests, I can only hope that mine turn out as well.

 

Half went to Sir Cyr, and I got the others. They're... interesting. I find it odd that the treasure is in its own weird little square with a big gap around the edges. Serves the purpose of loot well for sure though.

I thought it was a bit odd as well. While I'm not really a fan of that (the one gap that the primer didn't obliterate), I still think they're quite useful for dungeon dressing. I think I'm going to try to vary the types of coins in the chest, and I see that there's a couple of gems in there as well.

The other open chest does have some gems in it. I don't think this one does. The other also has a skull. Sir Cyr gets that one though. If I wasn't testing myself on lack of nitpicking, I would have been painting each individual coin with different metals and possibly trying to make faces on them :wacko:

I think my players are going to get suspicious by me throwing a painted treasure chest at them. They'll think it is a trap, even if it isn't. I might just make the lid snap on their fingers to spite them.

I laughed out loud at this! :lol:

 

Great painting too btw.
