I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors! Do I get bonus points for that?
Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

Deep One Priest painted by me and the Warrior painted by my husband who's just getting into painting.
So I had lost the mojo to paint for a while but watching this last KS got me inspired to get back to it. Also, the hubby is running a new D & D group so I've been asking him what he needs for sessions and just doing some speed painting on things. It's been a nice way to get back into it without overthinking it.
That being said, this is the first one that I really spent some time on in a long time and I dig the way it turned out. It's kind of sappy but my husband is also coming to enjoy painting so he painted the warrior first and I matched the main color scheme when I had the time to work on the priest. It's been really fun to paint with him as he's learning the basics.
The basic colors for both of them were the Brilliant Green triad. The belly is Highland moss over the darker green. I focused on glazing and trying to blend the light and shadow together so it wasn't as blotchy. I should have made sure to straighten out the priest a bit more so pardon the quarters to prop him up for better photos. I'll have to work on a nice base to help angle him a bit.
Could be better but feels good to be painting again!
This is yet another of my metal trade bin finds! I picked him out because he looked like he was wounded, and I love minis in poses other than at-arms. It turns out that he's clutching a dagger on his chest, and not a wound. Also, I'm spoiled by Reaper's wonderful faces. This one is a little bit flat, though that may be due to being in the bin. Anyway, not my best work, but I painted this in a few hours!
