I’ve got the shirt on my dwarf about where I want it and shaded the socks & pantaloons.
The shirt’s done with pointillism to give it a very different texture to the surrounding textiles. Though the shadows are quite deep, I haven’t pushed the highlights extremely high. This will create the impression of a soft fabric that doesn’t reflect much light.
More work on this handsome dwarf.
I’ve painted his shirt a cool white instead of the warm cream it had been. I’ve also made a start on the socks & trousers.
A bit of progress here after my daughter went to bed at a generously early hour.
I’m moving along quickly, but I want to push myself to do my best. My recent competitions have motivated me to do more big boy painting.
Here’s a figure I’ve had on the back burner for a long time. I was so inspired by some of the work at MFCA that I wanted to get back to some display painting. I’ve still got plenty to do for gaming & narrative purposes, but I’ve been enjoying the competitions lately and I want to put together some pieces that showcase my current abilities.
It’s the classic ‘Random Encounter’ by FeR miniatures. Just put in some work on the skin, trying to do my best. Matt DiPietro told me to “paint boldly”, so I’m giving it a go.
I’ve finished off (though it looks like I need to paint stones on the archer) a small band of goblins who might cause some trouble for the people of ToadChapel.
The brighter one in the back had been done in true metallics and mounted on a plinth years ago, but I popped him off, painted NMM over the TMM, and slapped him on a gaming base.
These guys are fun and quick little minis that you can bash out in a set pretty easily. They’re tiny!
On his birthing day the father gave to his son a great name:
Now, his only reminder of home is the plaid of his dusty bedroll.
A ragtag collection of flops, fighters, and a fifteen year old wizzard, sworn to fight the Legions of the Dead.
But are they ready to defend this small village from the oncoming horde?
