Looking good as usual @R2ED! I like the purple look!


Life kinda got in the way this last weekend so I'm getting a move on the basilisk tonight. Probably won't get much done beyond blocking in colors, but I'll take what I can get. I also have some RCL minis I need to churn out, so hopefully I can get a big painting weekend in this week. 


In other news, this 5.5 pledge manager thing is not good for my wallet.

@billeecatstotally understand you on that pledge thing. The worst. 

I have games and minis coming through KS.

The Witcher.  

Lasting tales

Xmen unlimited

Fantasy minis

Darkest dungeon

And more dungeons and lasers.  I need to stop. Seriously.

Sadly, I have to travel for work this week.  No painting this weekend for me.  I do hope y'all get your stag, Reaper, bookkeeper, and basilisks all done.  Can't wait to play catch up for whatever gets picked next.  If i don't see a pick, I'll make one for the team by Sunday.

Got this done this morning, forgot to post it. Had a lot of fun with this one. The freehand spots were a challenge, but a couple careful thin glazes of bright turquoise blended it well I thought.


Colors used:

Creamy Ivory

Sepia liner(mixed with brush-on sealer to make a wash)

Bright Turquoise

Nuln Oil

Basilisk Green (+ Pure White for highlight)

Lotus Orange

Pure Black

Hey everyone, looks like there wasn't a post for the next picks.  I promised to make that pick if i didn't see someone choice, so here we go.


Animal and elemental:

1061 and 1075




Since we're doing two week stretches, these will be up for completion on sept 5th.


That will be good for me since I'm still traveling.  Good luck!

      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.

      This one took a lot more time than i planned.  2.5 nights of work.  The killer of it was all the layers with translucent paint.  Keeping them thin to not get streaking was difficult.   But i did it and it's done. 
      Proud moment for me is the eye.
