Not sure what her proper title is, considering there are something like 6 different maelee minis. I will be painting her up as Ashriel 'Ashes', one of my favorite personal characters. She's been cleaned up now. Going to try to paint her up to the best of my ability.
Critic and criticism very much desired during this thread. Please don't spare my feelings on her.
This year's Certificate after last year's bronze at reapercon has me frustrated and I need to get a Silver next year (a gold would be amazing, but I don't think my abilities will be refined enough to have 0 mistakes).

So I decided I needed a Bombshell Dog tag. So I went and dug out the only Bombshell model in my collection - the Morihalda bust. Getting her ready for reapercon will be a challenge, but after tonight, I think I'm up for it.
I'm really happy with her skin on her face and chest. Not sure what to do about the furry ears, though.
Working on my Reapercon piece.. still trying to get the skin tone highlights right. Probably need to thin my paints more..

So finally got around to taking my pictures of my minis from Gencon. I took a bronze for Rumscratch.
I was fairly happy with his little beach there, even if the water doesn't show well on camera.
My elf sailor was also entered, but not judged, since they only judge one of your entries per catagory.
He doesn't look very friendly. He was supposed to though.
I did a Wyrd miniatures speed paint of the Immolated Rhino.
I didn't know anything about this guy other than it was a rhino. Didn't even know the name until just now, so I made it pink. I made it very very pink.
wish I could have come up with something to do with the cracks in his skin. I just kind of ignored them.
this guy is a deep cuts guard. I did him up in a color theory class.
I don't think he turned out too bad considering the size of the brush I used on him.
I'll probably touch him up eventually.
Questions, comments, concerns?
I also took a miniature photography class and as side effect, learned what a few of the icons on my phones camera do.
It is written in the Book of Rites that jade is more precious and nobler than gemstones. Confucius said to Zi Gong that 'nowhere would people not cherish jade, because they respect and admire virtue.' This is wisdom.
And is it not also written by sages of later days that "It's not easy being green"?
Point is, this Foo Dog was not easy to paint, but I think it's worth it. Took advice from http://theminiaturespage.com/workbench/149837/ on how to get the semi-translucent effects. I don't think I succeeded as well as Zaphod there did, but there are a lot of little fiddly curlicues on the mane. And a good layer of 'Ardcoat also helps.
Appearing with the Foo Dog is one of Bombshell's Sidekicks: Ping the Panda. Bamboo can be used for smacking as well as snacking.
And here's some more Ping:
