How I Spent My Summer Vacation, by Pingo

Recommended Posts

Thx for sharing!

 

Glad you're back.

Like you said we all need each other, and even if people disagree about stuff, I think we should be able to discuss things in a civil manner, because when we stop talking, things really get bad.

 

Happy to see you have done stuff you believe in, and also happy to see you have painted wonderful minis for us to see.

Take care of yourself.

The ability to be civil is one of the reasons I prefer this forum over other online means of discussion.

 

Welcome back Pingo.

It is WONDERFUL having you back with us. It may have been sad but the protest is something I can empathize with:

 

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
 The New Colossus...Emma Lazaurus

 

God bless you & congratulations on the relatively new wheels.

I'm glad you are back and had at least in part an interesting summer (aside from sadness and sickness - I got some of that too).

 

Now everyone, get those weasel butt furs out of your mouths before PaintMom sees you!! :poke:

Welcome back. I promise I haven’t licked any brushes. 

 

Well, at least the bristle end.

 

Do you think she bought that?

Stop using your paint rinse water to brew your coffee guys, she's back! ::P:

 

Someone has to keep everyone safe from Hazardous Art, and no one is better at it than you, Pingo.

Hi Pingo! I've been missing too, for different but related reasons. I'm glad you're ok, and your sign is beautiful on multiple levels.

Welcome back. 

 

Glad to know your time away was full of adventure and love, even if it had its share of adversity, too.

 

Beautiful sign.

      Felicitations on your personal solstice!

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
       
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
       
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.

      This is Reaper's magnificent 50212 "Incredible Woman," sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
       
      She's a great figure that can be painted up like a lot of (tall - she's a big one) women superheroes. Wonder Woman is on my wish list, and maybe Captain Marvel one day.
       
      This version is Marvel's She-Hulk from her classic days as one of the Fantastic Four, replacing Ben Grimm for a time.
       
      As a materials and techniques note, I didn't use any green or blue pigments in her skin. It's all mixed from yellow and black. This was partly to prove a point and is kind of central in the art video I posted on YouTube last week: Yellow and Black Make Green.
       
      Enjoy!

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      This miniature is 15503C Nyamaunir Piratin, a catgirl pirate from Das Schwarze Auge (The Dark Eye, Germany's 1980s answer to Dungeons and Dragons). She's a little Old School and a little short even for that. I like that she looks like a cat who is a person in sensible pirating clothes.
       

       

       
        
       
        
       
        
       
      There was a WIP thread, but it didn't get very far.
