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*.

Anyone up for kicking into Halloween theme stuff? I usually try to do a diorama for my kid, but not sure what anyone else thinks?

I was thinking giving these two a shot.

      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.
