So I was gonna wait to post any WIPs until I at least finished LTPK2 but I picked up a few of the chibi Bomesvylian’s and decided to to skip ahead of the LTPK2 a bit and give Lou a try, mostly cause his creepy little face is so adorable! 

 

I primed him with 2 part blue liner to 3 part white primer so I could see the details better and to hopefully cover any errors I may make when adding shadows. My goal is for him to be mostly purple with bright green wings and tentacles. I saw a WIP Lou on this forum a while ago with the same colors and just loved it so I’m totally stealing the color scheme. 

 

I’ve got 2 layers of the purple base (Imperial Purple) on so far and I’ve decided on red (Brilliant Red) for the eyes. To hopefully keep him being too cutesy colors.

Oohh purple!

I like it!

 

 Me too! 

 

Added an attempt at layering in shadows and highlights. The shading (various amounts of imperial purple and nightshade purple) went okay but then I went WAY to heavy on the different layers of highlights (second picture) (various imperial purple and amethyst purple) and had to glaze them way down to hopefully try again.

      Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?! 
       
      She's painted with a mix of Reaper MSP and Vallejo Game Color. I haven't done so yet, but I think I'd like to start chronicling the colors I use for each future mini.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!
