For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
out that I can get my paws and brush on. I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move. I started painting him this week, along with
another two others Meier Sculpts. I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him. Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge. They are
small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint. So here is where I am on this miniature,
a day after I started work on it. I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend. Jasonator.
It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
in front of a window with direct sunlight. So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
from Portland. I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
So here are four photos:
Please let me know what you think.
I have actually been painting, sadly I'm no longer as fast as I used to be. I just wanted to post a photo of two Tom Meirer Elf's
that I am currently painting. I have gotten a bit ambitious as to the guards, and also the basing project. So when it is done, I will
post in the show off Forum. I have gotten rather fond of the plastic vise grippers to hold the miniatures.
After ALL this Time I am going to Post a WIP ???
Well, I broke all my rules about painting a miniature with this one.
I designed the BASE FIRST (do that last Normally).
Attached the figure to the base, its glued and pinned (becoming a nut-job really).
So now I have to paint this puppy on its base, and I have NO CLUE as to what it is.
Two eyes, claws, lots of mouth, furry, and VERY Little. Might be smaller than my dwarf that I posted.
I believe it is.
So I'll try to post photos as I go about this. Maybe I'll learn something, maybe not.
Here is the start of the little Woolly creature on his base made from a piece of 1000 year old oak bark,
taken from the area where the crotch of a limb might have been.
Toss a comment in if you feel like it.
