By Lord of the Dish Pit
These were the final two of the Thanksgiving Challenge I was able to complete.
The one on the left is a fairly accurate depiction of the Elder Mouse that wound up briefly possessing me on Halloween and his friend is the Priestess of Cheezit. (Which has gone from a favored food of mice, to a religion it seems)
Debating on the nature of Cheezits vs Cheese Nips, consulting the Book of Ralph.
Nips are found to be acceptable, and they go off to spread this to the other mice...
“...and I, Colonel Duke Jones, stand on the surface of Mars for all of humankind and in the spirit of exploration that’s taking our species beyond its Earthly bounds. And I’m lighting this cigar to celebrate a successful mission.”
“Haha. Good speech, Duke. You're the first human in 76 years to stand on the surface of another planet. How’s it feel to be further from Earth than any other human being?”
“Pretty good, Pioneer. It’s humbling and really gives a sense of perspective. The air is thin but breathable. Those terraforming guys did a great job. Hey, the camera’s working, right? This is being broadcast back to Earth?”
“Yep, it's all good. There's a delay but they're getting it. Audience figures are even bigger than Kim Kardashian’s state funeral, so well done!”
“How do things look from up there in orbit?”
“We’re all good, just watching you and keeping an eye on your vitals.”
“OK, Pioneer. I’m gonna have another puff on this cigar and—”
“Duke, sorry to break in, but Jim just had an idea. The Earth is directly behind you. Could you turn around so we can get a shot of you looking back at it?”
“Sure thing, Pioneer.”
“That's just perfect, Duke. Everything’s A-OK.”
“Good to know, Pioneer. We're still live, right?”
“We certainly are. Jim, you owe me fifty dollars.”
When I got my Secret Sophie assignment and saw that I got @Corporea to paint for, I knew almost instantly what I wanted to paint for her. She put that she likes anything adorable and cute plus I know she likes mouslings so I knew I had to paint one for her. As I was going through my stash I found that had the Santa one and knew it was perfect. I also knew I wanted to pair it with a Christmas tree but it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to do the tree. Mainly I was flipping back and forth between making or buying one. I ended up making one out of greenstuff and am really happy with how it turned out.
I decided to paint a few mouslings as Christmas presents for people. For the most part I think they turned out decent. The Santa was a little rushed so he's a little less detailed than I would have liked. And yes, I did get the basing idea for Asiago Jones from a diorama at Reaper Con.
It was also my first time playing around with basing. I'm having a hard time with putting on a second layer of basing materials, like the snow over the grass on the Santa. Maybe I didn't wait long enough between layers but trying to spread glue on the grass ended up just pulling up a bunch of the grass. So suggestions and thoughts are welcome.
