Well either she is a giant or she is carrying a collection of children's skulls. Painted for a Trio with @Pochi and @Kuroneko The base seemed to take forever, the first one I have put on a slant, previously I built up a hill rather than tilting the base, and using park ledges for a horizontal plane. The tree is made from twigs and flocking. One of these days ill figure out trees. the painted backdrop is a Bob Ross inspired mountain on canvas that I did last year. They work pretty well together but not enough for me to tie in the colors of the grass and match the tree more carefully. Next time I do this with a landscape I will choose one that is less busy, or at least focuses the eye toward the mini.
I'd never felt I had an artistic bone in my body until I started painting minis. Well, now, I decided I'm going to try my hand at 2D art.
I am following along Bob Ross videos on YouTube. I will note, and this is probably very important, that I am using acrylic paint and not oils. I did not want to spend oil paint prices since this is a new thing for me.
These are the two I've done:
Day 1: I learned a lot, I needed to do something with my paint to extend the drying time. This would have helped with the blending. Overall, happy with it excepting the house.
2: I used some slow dry medium mixed into the paint today. Not sure if it was not mixed well enough or I didn't use enough but it only gave me like 5 minutes or less of extra working time. If anyone has any suggestions for how to use slow dry medium, please, let me know. I'm using heavy bodied acrylic tube paints.
I followed along until the end and I decided to add some darker blue and green. I think that helped a lot.
Another note, need to find sturdier paper. While this is holding up it likes to curl slightly while drying. The second one is taped to the desk on the back to try to minimize that problem. I am currently using a mixed media paper.
