Hello everyone, today is a Pathfinder day. I did my best to paint it as faithfully as possible respecting the original artwork colors. This is the metal version 60136, Aglanda the herald of Razmir sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It's also available in Bones plastic under sku: 89040.
Here's a fun and simple one for you this week!
Owlbears are one of my favorite D&D creatures. They're just such a silly concept and I love them. Any scenario were I could use a bear, I swap out for one of these guys instead. However, despite owning several different owlbear models, I have avoided painting them for a long time out of fear of ruining them. Finally decided to give one a shot.
Reaper Bones 4: Lowland Owlbear (77674)

What kind of Owls should I use as inspiration next?
What mini did you put off painting for too long?
In the country of the blind, the saying goes, the one-eyed man is king. Certainly when venturing into the obscure unknown of space, the monocular Illyrians are as good as any human, despite a completely different evolution. Their quick regeneration and centrally-located brain-analogue allow them to survive injuries a human could not, while their alien metabolism means resource competition between human and Illyrian is minimal.
Here is one brave planetary explorer on a rugged rocky ringed planet. It appears extensively cratered, but the presence of atmosphere and weather should have worn the features down...
Well, that answers that!
Distant evolutionary cousins, perhaps? Or just convergence?
These native life forms are unused to creatures with eyestalks like theirs that can move about freely on the surface!
The eye-worms are unused eyestalks from a Wizkids Beholder--they come with a set each of Eyebeam Eyes and Regular Eyes. Waste not!
They were inspired by this pulpy artwork--not mine, all credit to the original artist.
Hi all! With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.
A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another. I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.

It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between. I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time. I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago. My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting. Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures. My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.
I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings. And these guys will be looking forward as well. And backwards. And sideways. Always watching.
How have you improved this year?
