2020 was STILL spent on my brain and learning, even if my hands wouldn't let me practice it.
Between my arms getting worse and *gestures broadly in 2020,* that didn't leave much energy for socializing either.
But now that I have fixed arms, I'm excited to pace myself get my butt into the art chair! Wooo! Nevermind, my arms are still dying and the doctor said I have to pace myself.
As much as I would like to continue with green stuff sculpting, I just can't sculpt physically as long as I can digitally. So for now, digital practice it is!
While I couldn't actually *do* anything with the information I learned over the last year and a half, I took tons of notes and tried to reread them when I could.
I'm happy to list the videos and books if folks are interested. :)
Enlarge! Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 44109, Enlarged Dark Dwarf Smiter I completed last night. The size of this model allowed me to add more texture on the leather. I also added light effect on the face and the shield rivets. For those of you who may wonder, Dark Dwarves (Duergar) can once a day use their spell-like ability to enlarge themselves. This Bones Black model was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
Well, Reaper have started a Challenge League on their Discord channel and my painting mojo has been in the doldrums lately, so it looks I'm going to be using it as painting inspiration for the next wee while.
Here's my first entry, which is part of a collaboration with @Pochi and @Evilhalfling. Its a promotional mini from last year, Garghuk the Ogre Chieftain. All comments and criticisms are happily received.
Some basic table-top paints here, The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting. It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)
The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.
For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.
The Owl Bear fur is Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint , it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)
