@billeecatsnice effect on the hourglass, btw

Thanks! I keep fiddling with it, but I should probably just leave it be instead of making it worse. I'm going to call it a night here (it's 3 AM!) but all that remains now is to highlight the staff and the red wraps on his arm and on the scythe. Then this reaper is done.

Each week was the goal.  It's everyone up for a two week stretch? 

 

On that note i finished this book keeper.  Not... my... favorite.  Was difficult with all the little buckles and straps.

Maybe we can keep it a little loose until everyone is ready to go full steam?

 

I'm just now done with the Grim Reaper, so I'm 3 minis behind at this point. No light box pictures at this time, but he's as done as he's going to get.

Here's what the stag looks like right now. He's going to get done up with whites and purples, and maybe a rainbow mane. He's my spirit of the forest. (Also pictured: what happens to my nail when I don't wear a glove while painting.)

@billeecatsthe Reaper looks solid! Nice work on your fading blade.  I suck at transitions. 2 things i want to learn:  NMM and OSL. Both elude my current skill. 

 

Two weeks it is.  Bookkeeper and basilisk go for another week.  I am very curious what the next picks will be.

@Hibougreat... so now it's only me who's not doing nmm.  You are all forcing me to do this.  

 

scythe is what i should have said, but reaper mower has a better ring to it.

@Hibou I like how you gave the scythe an edge! It looks so good. I consisted doing that earlier when I still thinking of doing a metal scythe, but my NMM ability is...err...very limited. 

 

@R2ED NMM is my current I-need-to-learn-this itch. I'm terrible at it, but gotta start somewhere, thus also the trim on Darius' robes. My OSL skills are non-existent. I've never tried it, but who knows what the future holds. 

 

Fun fact: That scythe was supposed to look like glass. Goes to show how much I need to up my game because it's not apparent at all 😂

 

 

Oh also, I saw some great videos on TMM shading so the next mini I paint that has metal on it, I'm going to try that.

Got base coats on the basilisk, this last week was crazy for me so the extra week is appreciated. Dont know where I'm going with the base but the colors I used on the basilisk so far are creamy ivory, bright turquoise, and lotus orange.

 

 

@R2EDI think your moneylender looks great!

Friday the ac will be installed for the garage, then I can start painting full speed. I'll catch up as best as I can. Then I'll probably fall behind again next month when I run away for PAX, hopefully I'll find a few fun minis too bring home and share while I'm up there.

      Done. 
       
      OSL effect.  Trying to make it look like he's lit from the campfire.

      Here we go! It's time to finally give me time to this OSL thing.  I saw this model and thought it'd be perfect to do as if this bugbear snuck up on a group of adventurers over their campfire.  
       
      I'll try to base this guy with a camp fire below him.  
       
      How's he look? 
       

       
      Here's him from the under-side:

      Still needs some basing, but he's off to a good start.
       

       
      Interesting how this worked out. 
      I did dry brushing on the first two layers of greens.  
      Then went back in with regular brush and layers, but didn't think it was loud enough.  What this?  A huge stock pile of BCA pink?  Better put it to use.  I mixed that into the alien green and base, then touched it up with pink to add some warmth (i mean as warm as aghast should be #dead) in the highlights.  Pink and green were a fun combo. 
       
      I'm not totally into the tattered shirt colors the more i look at it.  I may need to use a wash over it, which i try to avoid, to add some dirt/grime look to it.  It's too clean and vibrant. But hey, i did layer nicely. Win. 
       
      I wasn't sure about the facial features.  I ended up just touching it up with a little green yellow for discoloration around the mouth, but seems like he still needs something. 
       
      Next thing i need to do is make a fun base for him.  Something Halloween feeling for sure.  Thanks @Reaper_Jonfor the ghoulie bags and free minis.  Putting them to good use.

      This little guy is just a background piece so i wanted him to be simple.  I picked his color scheme to use red and green.  Someone mentioned to try shading green with red so i thought, why not?   His tunic is green shaded with red. 
       

       
      Testing a new style of painting with the deep shading around the eyes (because i wanted to be lazy... don't judge me).
       
      Would love your feedback.

      Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing.  In this case, I was just using it to test some colors.  
       
      Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun.  I figured this gross figure needed a green belly.  From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple.  Challenge accepted. 
       
      I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple.  Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots.  Still wanted more.   Made a light wash of that purple and filled in the sections and gaps in the chitin.  Worked well. 
       
      For a three color combo it sure does look weird, but also some how works.  I'm digging this color theory thing. 
       

       

       
      Here's the progress photos.
