@Rainbow Sculptor How much drawing experience do you recommend? I've had a little instruction, and a small amount of practice, but I would not classify myself as "expert" by any means (maybe well-meaning newbie). Can you give me some guidance? The class sounds really interesting, but I want to be sure I can get the most out of it, and not waste a slot better suited to a more prepared student.

Hey! I'm glad it piqued your interest! I don't really put a qualifier on drawing experience because the principles I teach are applicable to any medium. I know sculptors who don't draw hardly at all, others who used to work professionally as illustrators and loads of in-between. I don't require students to draw anything in class. We will run through the process of designing a character so you get an idea on how I approach it and brainstorming together as a class on how best to communicate our concept. It's much more about how to approach character design with intent and purpose so that your end result is both creative and cohesive regardless as to what medium you choose to implement it. 

 

I hope that answers your question. If you're still not sure feel free to PM me and we can talk about what your goal is and if it's a good fit.

I took her class last year (no regrets!), and drawing talent is not really a requirement for this class.

 

What it does is really help you become better at fleshing out ideas for any theme or concept you have after a bit of brainstorming. Be it for a sculptor or an illustrator. You'll get better at visualizing basic shapes, or imagining which accessories or gimmicks you want to add to your creations.

Hey, all! Tish Wolter here. Every year after ReaperCon I vow to be more active on the Reaper Boards, and every year I fail miserably. Anyway, if anyone has any questions about the classes I'm teaching, please don't hesitate to contact me. And please come by and introduce yourselves at the Con so I can connect faces to forumite names :)

Good to see you here. And I'll see you in your Pushing Past Problems class as well. :;): (Thank you for running two sessions, btw.)

:down:  I was going to take this, but you are already sold out (as you should be; you are one of the best instructors I've ever had for painting). I was camping over the weekend and the classes are flying of the shelves.

 

 

There should be a short version coming out on a Reaper Toolbox segment some time, I filmed one when some of us were down in Denton taking a class with Sergio Calvo a few months ago.

 

And you're of course welcome to hit me up at RC where I'll have my demo figures and handout reference and stuff and I'll give you the quick spiel or feedback on any figures you might practice on, etc.

I now have a 4th class, which was waitlisted but has now been added! 

 

Bits, bobs and accoutrements: Painting your adventurer's gear

 

Time: Thursday 5pm

Type: Painting

Level: Intermediate

Format: Hands-on

Synopsis: In a world full of belts, bags, pouches, bottles, weapons and treasures galore, how do you make every bit of gear look unique without causing your character to resemble an exploded rainbow? How do you paint a dozen leather items without everything blending together? In this Intermediate-level class, we will be exploring the wonderful world of browns; how to quickly add polish to bottles and gems; and various ways to make materials distinct (such as creating simple textures, or adding wear marks and stains). Bring your nice pointy brushes and lots of questions! Magnification is strongly recommended for this class, so please come prepared.

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D

this is kind of late news, but after discussing with Ron, My kids class 1 for 6 to 8 year olds was cancelled, and replaced with this:  (not a kids class at all)

 

Realistic Horror: the gory details

Whether its a horde of zombies, battle hardened orcs, action posed miniatures, or building a diorama, a few gory details will bring it to life, even it is already dead. This hands on class will demonstrate and practice several techniques to add horrifically realistic blood and gore effects to miniatures. Students will learn skills to add blood splatters, blood drips, even blood action sprays. Class will also cover adding distrubingly awesome gore in the form of hanging guts, entralls and ripped skin. Burns(both acid and fire), broken limbs and severed hands are just a click away. Time to make a controlled mess to either creep out the players of your horror game, or take your zombie diorama to the next level.
An awesome Reaper Miniature will be provided, but students should bring a few well worn brushes and a strong stomach.

 

 

Im really excited about this class.  let me know if you have questions
