What a great idea! Tell me, is the work in progress, or have you finished your sessions? I am now writing an essay about the effectiveness of different learning methods (including painting). I always find it difficult to pick a title correctly, so I used the help of https://gradesfixer.com/essay-title-generator/, but this is still not the main thing. Could you share your impressions of drawing sessions? Did you like it? Did this motivate you to learn?

Having a hard time with these two. 

I feel like my creative juices failed me here.  Colors are very bad. 

 

Still working, but not pleased.

This ain't getting better.  I'm not likng this one.  Tried highlighting.  Tried adding color.  Just didn't work.

I know you're not happy with this one, but he looks quite good to me. With the gold and yellow, he reminds me of the skeleton king from Diablo. 

 

I've been a little distracted trying to get the duo and trio for the Reaper Challenge League done so that other people aren't waiting on me. That's just about done now, just have a couple things to fine tune on the Sister Hazel mini. I also need to put some final touches on the dread wolf, and then I can start the skellies! 

 

(I'll also step through the spreadsheet today and mark off whatever I've finished from the Bones 5 stash.)

And before I forget, this guy looks GREAT! The shading on his cloak is *chef's kiss*.

      Okay, so maybe he's not smelling his cloak.  But it sure did make a fun alternate for why he's posed like that. 
       

       
      I didn't do my normal battle report because i neglected to take photos while i was going.  I'm happy with this guy.  Kept it very very simple.  I'll still have to base him and a little clean up on the cloak, but overall I'm happy with him.

      Since i didn't have my paints with me while on break, i was hungry to get back to it.  I guess i wasn't as full of turkey and stuffing as i thought. 
       

       
      As I'm posting this, i saw on his left leg that he's got an unpainted seal.  Dang it! 
       
      I made the bands on the blade smaller. 
      Added more metal details. 
      Added more accent color. 
      Tested two new paint color (silver grey, red. And German Grey). Each did great. 
       
      His backpack gave me some trouble.  I was gluing it on, but the post didn't push in and then it broke off.  Ended up doing some surgery back the but it's on.

      Got another one in this week.  I'm on a roll!
       
      Still doing my work on these marines looking for a color combo I really like.  I completed Red, Blue, Green, and Black.  I've got 2 more color schemes to test, which are Grey and White.  We'll see in the coming days how much energy I've got for them.
       
      This one came out pretty good. 

       
      I still need to base and touch up his sword with more color, but he's pretty much done outside of that.  Enough for me to post in WIP.
       
      The process was pretty good and I'm learning that these sub-assemblies help a TON in getting to those insanely hard to reach spots.  I took pictures of what the sub assembly looks like just to what my method was and hopefully helps others struggling.

      Finished the Paint job on another marine.  I'll need to come up with a cool base.  I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. 
       
      Here's the first one of this set up. 

       
      Here's the purebred. 
       
      Give me feedback.  If you'd like this black background let me know.

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
       
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

       
      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
       
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.
