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.
Since I have moved to Portland, I have FINALLY gotten my painting desk, and miniatures set up in front of a window.
I've started working on them. My plan is to set up a royal tomb using 1000 year old oak tree bark, and two Tom Meirer
elven guards. This is what I have done so far. I may have to build the tomb higher, and the placement of the guards is
just to get them in the picture. Work in Progress. So this is my new beginning on the West Coast.
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.
I started out this miniature without a clue as to what I was going to do with it.
I had NO idea what it was, and so the first thing I did was create a WIP to get some guidance as I progressed
through painting the mini. I was absolutely clueless.
In a short time of working on it, the Meier touch came through and the pure humor, and skill of Tom was
guiding my hands (if not my chuckles). Ideas came along with encouragement of our friends on the Forum.
So rather than keep filling an already full bucket, here is my painted interpretation of Tom Meiers "LITTLE WOOLLY".
Your comments, and opinions are greatly appreciated.
You can find the WIP in the Works in Progress session.
The base is made from a very old piece of Oak Bark.
