Magic effect?  What were you trying to pull off?  I'm curious to know what you had in mind. 

I tried to make him casting a cold magic spell with his right hand(cuz he's named Winterhand lol), almost like he was holding an action for dnd combat. The osl upon the book is not the best nor is the "glow" that i tried to achieve.

I found WIP minis while packing up to move that I didn't even know I HAD.    After the Great Unboxing, I've got my work cut out for me.   Huzzah!  --OneBoot :D 

Wow so I had a goal of finished by midnight on sunday, didnt set an alarm, got lost in the fun of painting and I kid you not; I put my brush down at 11:59:57pm.    Here is Lysette, I'm calli

Working on shading and midtones. Thought the blue would be darker. I'm going to have to go over it again with something.      The group so far:

This past weekend's successes. First, Domur Huntersmoon.  I went with a monochromatic blue and grey scheme to keep it simple and save time.  Sorry, the lighting is not the best in this photo.

One of the cats from Cats&Catacombs KS last year.   I started painting them right before lockdown and haven't been able to touch them since.  I'm happy with how this came out.

@Inarah love the kitteh! And that freehand on the book!! ::o: I also really like that subtle OSL on the wizard's hat. Very nice!

 

@crowsandbones I think you'd did a fine job on Vodelis! I really like how good face and robes turned out. Sometimes you just have to walk away from a mini, otherwise it's just diminishing returns. You can always go back and revisit your work later ^_^

 

I just wrapped up a 14 hour work day, and I'm wiped out. This is going to be a very busy month for me work wise, so I might have to limit myself to committing to just a single mini every week, just so I don't feel like I'm slacking if I can't get to more!

@billeecats the books were done with waterslide transfers.  There's some on the wizard's book, but I couldn't get a good photo of it. I love those for details. 

 

Work happens.  March will be busy for a number of reasons.  Paint when you can.

Thanks @Inarah ::):

 

I took your advice about doing enough to keep making progress, and did something different today by spending 30 mins or so basecoating a mini in the morning, since my evenings have been getting busier with work stuff. Feels better already. 

 

On a different note, do you make your own water slide decals?

I do not.  I buy them when I can find them, usually at game cons. The set I used for those two models I got from a KS project.  It was all script and occult symbols for a certain game with warrior priests. I'm hoping they do a project with more sci-fi symbols and warning signs, graffiti, orange or yellow hazard stripes, etc.

I was assigned a huge project at work last week and haven't had a chance to pick up a brush since. I will be painting this weekend for RVE and will hopefully finish something so I can post it. Otherwise, I am afraid I won't be on here much until I get this project on track or at least going smoothly. I hate it when management decides halfway through a project that someone should be in charge. And I am trying to get the house ready to sell and move - good times. At least everything should be done by the time Bones 5 arrives.

Just noticed some big changes to the spreadsheet — lots of green, lots of bookkeepers ledger green. What does the green signify?

I can't figure out what the heck the green is?   I have tried to change it, but somehow there's a formula or something locked in it.  One of the downside to a master list that everyone shares.  For the next bones 5 list, I'll lock all cells except for your column so there can't be alterations or changes someone accidently does.  No worries, though.  The main thing is the work everyone did is on there, but i can't figure out the green... i will soon.  Very very soon. 

 

Ps. We'll miss you in the meantime @Kate

I don't know how the green got there, I didn't do it, but I made it go away.  My guess is it was an error while attempting to do a colorfill of some blocks. 

 

Today was a long day but I have the rest of the week free.

Will that prevent adding new rows?  That is how I add new things when I find/confirm I have one.

@TGPsince the Bones 5 set is locked, it's going to be an unchanging list.  The current bones 4 (and others) list is a compiled inventory of what everyone has.  

 

Once we're in bones 5 mode, it's all hands on deck to paint that stuff, which was the goal with Paint Club.  Not to say we can't sprinkle in some others, but that bones 5 list should be locked.  Make sense?  I'm also open to suggestions here since this isn't exactly a dictatorship.  

 

@Inarahthanks for getting rid of the green.  Odd how it was there.  I tried to get rid off it a few times, but didn't know why it was showing up.  #spreadsheetqueen

 

We're only weeks away though...so excited!

Since the spreadsheet is updated with bones 5 listings, should we start putting in what we ordered or wait til it shows up? I didn't order all of it, but I got plenty still to work on when something is chosen that I don't have. All the painted ones in the picture are the rest of my old Mageknight minis that still need to be stripped, painted and put on proper bases.

Let me just finish off the list and the names.   Then we'll start loading it up!   Should be awesome! 

 

All good @Ambrousis. Do your thing in the spreadsheet 2nd tab.  Add x's to any you have coming.  That goes for anyone. I imagine our focus will be on Core Set, but we'll see. 

 

And I'm insanely jealous of your setup.

I'm realizing now that I'm in wave 25, hopefully will receive my package before too long but I'm definitely gonna be lagging behind everyone on the paint club, hopefully it's cool that I keep doing my thing while you guys dive in.

      Finally got back on to some painting.  It was a minor win, but just basing this dude feels good to be done.  One cool thing i thought was fun is that i put a footprint in the mud under his left foot.  Kind of a small, but cool detail. 
       
      Done.

      Got them based

      3rd animal done this weekend, but feeling good making some good progress.  Still trying my best to commit to getting a few done every weekend.  
       

       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  I watched another Dr. Faust painting video (the dude is my hero) and gathered some thoughts on how I wanted to approach this wolf.  Browns, tans, and a pink little tail.
      *  The two tones of Rust (Dark and Light) blended well across the two fur areas.  Bringing up the highlights from there was much easier using family of colors.
      *  Being VERY gentle with drybrushing and not rushing it, like I have in the past.  Thanks to much feedback I took a different approach on this and feel like it improved the outcome.
      *  I deepened some of the areas with Agrax Earthshade, but it didn't come out with as much definition as I wanted, so I swapped out for a glaze of German Black/Brown and it helped them a lot.  Win.
      *  Tusks look great, but took me about 5 different layers to get there.  
       
      Misses:
      *  So...I clearly rushed my cleaning on this one and I kept finding more and more little mold lines.  It was making me crazy.  Shame on me!
      *  The mouth isn't as clean as it should be.  The coloration could be a brighter pink or something. 
      *  The exposed bone on the head the more I look at it, the less I like it.  Not sure how I can improve this, though.  Thoughts?
      *  Eyes, much like the bunnies were just black.  Needs something else to help it pop.
      *  Is the pink tail weird? 
      *  On the tail portion, I did laugh to myself making the nutsack stand out, but whoever made this model made that detail.  I laughed, but it needed to be done.  Sorry not sorry.
       
      It took about an hour and a half, so I'm pretty happy with speed on this one.  Next up - basing.  Love the feedback if you've got any.

      Got another bunny done for the weekend.  Feeling pretty good on getting some animals done.
       

       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Using another photo for inspiration, I was interested in that this bunny photo had a slight 'blueish' tone to the color in the grey.  I was interested in trying to match it.  Used Denim Blue, Grey, and black to get it.  Came out pretty good!
      *  The white was also one that I needed to be able to highlight up and I didn't want to use another grey. I ended up going with the Ghost White, which had a light blue to it, and I thought went with the grey color I mixed, too.  
      *  The colors blended well and I was able to use the same technique I used on the other butterscotch bunny of doing a feathering of lighter color to bring the hair detail forward.  
      *  Used a nuln oil diluted for the recesses and around the tail.  Worked good enough.  Wouldn't have minded a little more contrast, but still cute.
       
      Misses:
      *  I didn't highlight up the fleshy colors on the nose.  I somewhat feel it needs more of a "pop" and think it was a miss that I didn't.
      * The white is still on the weaker end and coudl have gone a little darker so I could bring the white hair forward more.  Using the zenithal highlight helped, but still wanted more.
       
      These were both super fast and only a handful of colors needed, so both bunnies were solid.  Open to any feedback ya got.  
       
      Now I gotta base them with something cute and fun...

      Finally the weekend!  What a wait it felt like to get here.  

       
       
      With it being the Easter weekend, I figured it'd be fitting to do some bunnies.  I had hoped to make these for a family member and ship them out, but that didn't pan out.  However, getting them painted is still better than not.
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  The butterscotch coloring I saw on some rabbits on Whidbey Island, I couldn't help but use as inspiration.  Matching them to how they came out, I'd say was better than I expected.
      *  Using very, very simple colors and just pushing the colors up with mixing them worked great!
      *  Making the details come out more by using very faint streaks of diluted paint worked great to give the impression of individual hairs sticking through.  I think this will be used in other models I do as well.  
      *  Eyes have a nice pop to them, but was thinking some more color would be good.
       
      Misses:
      *  I was thinking of putting some wash in there to bring forward the creases, but I didn't want to lose that fun color.  Any suggestions?
      *  The eyes have a strangeness to them by highlighting the eye lids.  Would you all suggest doing dark instead of light around the eyes?
      *  Speaking of eyes I wasn't sure if putting a spot of white in there was good or not, so I held off.  
       
      Pretty happy with how this little bunny came out.
