I have a series of vignette's I'm planning that all feature ogres in amusing scenes with townsfolk. The first of this series is here.
With this one I imagined the young milk maid is taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. The boyfriend, wanting to put on a good first impression has worn his best striped collar and matching belt, as well as brought his best skulls.
He's a bit nervous so she's trying to reassure him. "Don't worry... Mom is going to love you."
She doesn't say anything about dad, though...
Any critique and criticism is always welcome.
The Left Hand of Darkness here is from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion. I painted this one at the same time as the Bones 4 female devil, as they make a fine pair. Speaking of fine pairs, you will need to click the links to see, as the titilation offered by a shapely two inch piece of plastic might be harmful to minors.
More Full Frontal
Even More Full Frontal
The Other Left
A slight Angela from Spawn vibe going here. Not sure what about this mini that makes me think of that character.
77496 Eilluvasheth, Succubus Queen
Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion, 2017
Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
Made in Bonesium PVC

The Phantasm. This figure invokes all kinds of dread. Unlike a ghost, which is understandable to the extent it is an echo of a human personality, this thing is just plain SPOOKY. Monstruum horrendum, informe, ingens. Logic won't help you, interpersonal skills won't save you, instinct will be actively harmful. An Outside Context Problem, unnatural in every sense.
The Death Shroud here, 02546, is an excellent example of the use of negative space.
The sculpt reminds me greatly of the magnificent M. R. James ghost story, "Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad."
"There was something about its motion which made Parkins very unwilling to see it at close quarters."
"It would stop, raise arms, bow itself towards the sand, then run stooping across the beach to the water-edge and back again; and then, rising upright, once more continue its course forward at a speed that was startling and terrifying...
"Now it began to move, in a stooping posture, and all at once the spectator realized...that it must be blind, for it seemed to feel about it with its muffled arms in a groping and random fashion..."
"...what he chiefly remembers about it is a horrible, an *intensely* horrible, face of crumpled linen."
I recently bought some Greenstuffworld colourshift paints & eagerly wanting to try them out, I searched through my (huge) Bones backlog for a suitably metallic mini. I grabbed the fantastically ominious Iron Golem from the Bones 4 Stoneskull Expansion & got to work.
The blue areas are the colourshift paint, all the other areas are standard paints.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's not as easy to see the effect on these pics as it is with your own eyes but you can make it out. There's no shading or highlighting on these areas apart from some silver to pick out the rivets & sharp edges on the arm plates.
Thanks for looking!
