Okay, Day 2 update: This went through A LOT of iteration. The main issues that weren't working were that we wanted the bent leg to feel like it was out and raised like she was showing off the leg

Sorry I didn't get around to posting the final render of this last lady of the evening.   I wanted to talk a little bit about why this last figure took so long and demystify the work

Hey guys! Okay, so I wrapped up this Orc Doxie today. When all the big construction decisions and head are already finalized the only thing left to do is render. This is a time consuming process but a

I'm very glad you got these.  They really fit your style.

Impertinent suggestion. To me the hand holding the tankard is a bit dull. Instead how about her making a "come to me" gesture?

Somehow I think that fits with the cheeky grin Ms Collier has given her.

 

 

But that would give her the exact same pose as Reapers current human Doxy:

 

Townsfolk: Strumpet

 

 

I like that mug since it means she could also fit in the bar scene as either a patron, a doxie working the bar, or a flirtatious barmaid.

The competition is brutal in that field of work!

 

I have that human one,...I want to paint her as a Vampire.

 Come here boy, let me give you a night you'll never forget.

Don't be shy, I don't bite..well maybe a little...hehhehehe

I didn't think it mattered if she had the same pose as the current doxie, until I read this. 

Yes on the mug, please.

I'd forgotten her. A sort of subliminal recall?

Hopefully this doesn't come across the wrong way - it's hard to add a description other than "I love her personality" without potentially going in directions one didn't intend, due to it being text.  In short, I like her, a LOT.  Definitely seems the type equally at home there, or perhaps even adventuring.  ^_^;;;

 

She looks all sorts of things... Playful, flirty, inviting, that slight bit of exotic danger... Alongside the noticeable (yet diverted due to that smile and her stance) aura that she could just outright beat the tar out of you with a single swing, leaving you on your back several feet behind where you had been standing if you decide to try and get out of line... 

 

Or, in other words, I am very much so looking forward to painting her, and I'm not usually one to go for the female minis (they aren't my thing typically unless something about them jumps right out at me).  This one?  She's kind of got that "reaching through the screen, grabbing my shirt and demanding to be painted" kind of vibe because boy do I love her personality and how there can be so much story to her!

This is great! You managed to get sexy / flirty with big tusks, amazing. Good job on the whole character so far, makes me sad I'm not picking this expansion, but maybe when they get to retail I'll nitpick a few interesting characters out. This might be one of those :)

WOW, thank you!!!
We had discussed losing the tusks altogether just for logistical reasons but I really wanted to make it work. I think they add so much more dimension to her personality. As you said, the exotic danger, the twinge of sour to the presentation of sweetness that eludes to a more complex character. I'm really glad that the intent is coming through and that we were able to make it work logistically. 
I cannot WAIT to see all the different interpretations painters bring to her.

      This is a bunch of minis in one. I was looking at my pygmy mammoth mini a couple of months ago and I just felt the need to dangle something from its tusks. I found some little bottles I had bought years ago from a Michaels or Joann and the rest of the ideas followed smoothly. I chopped some phosphorescent plastic from a little dino model you find in Fred Meyer and put those in the bottles and they do glow in the dark. I wasn't able to take a good photo of that, alas. I first saw the idea of a large pack animal with lanterns on it, traveling into an uncertain world, years ago when I saw this art: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/7638820 and fell in love with it.
       
      List of materials
      - Pygmy mammoth https://www.reapermini.com/search/mammoth/latest/44111
      - Shadoweyes Catfolk rogue https://www.reapermini.com/search/cat rogue/latest/44118
      - Adventuring accessories https://www.reapermini.com/search/02638
      - Adventuring accessories II https://www.reapermini.com/search/02963
      - green stuff (I used the silicone sculpting brushes and vaseline to get this level of detail)
      - little bottles from Michaels or Joann
      - phosphorescent plastic (I used the plastic support for the dino pieces from JARU, Inc. Dino World Glow Fossils - no dino pieces were harmed in the making of this mini)
       
      Here are more close up photos.
       




       
      And here is the making process.
       




       
      He even has a uvula :)
       

       
      I chopped off the platform and the swords from the rogue cat. And then I cut off its legs and tail so i could reposition them on top of the mammoth.
       

       
      And then I summoned the green stuff.
       





       
      It was really hard to detach the sacks from their metal anchor. I was basically chewing away at the metal with my pliers. But eventually they came off.
       





       
      Priming this was challenging.
       

       
      I sealed the base with a heavy layer of gloss sealer later on.
       


       
      Invoking more green stuff, this time for the cape, blanket edges and the harnesses.
       





       
      I used the cap on one of my new brushes to support the rolled up corner of the cape overnight otherwise it would have fallen flat. I smeared it with vaseline so it wouldn't stick and become a problem once the green stuff dried.
       

       
      Sculpted the edges of the blanket because just painting the dangly threads on the mammoth looked flat and most unsatisfactory.
       

       
      I think I'll name her Shen. And have her wreck havoc for my players in my D&D campaigns.
       





       
      I don't have photos for the harnesses because after staring at this mini for so long I got dizzy and had to lie down. And then I forgot to take pics and I finished the piece. The harnesses are just twisted long strips of green stuff. I measured the distance from the tusk to the hand and then made them and let them dry before attaching them.
       
      Hope you enjoyed this build :)

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
