I just finished up a wonderful bust from Artik Toys, sculpted by Patrick Masson. It’s a vampire based upon a painting by the great Paul Bonner. You can read some of Bonner’s thoughts on the composition of the painting (and, you know, see it) in an article he wrote for Muddy Colors.Continue reading “Nosferatu!”
When I saw this bust from Lukáš Žaba I immediately wanted to paint it. The face of the miniature was so expressive and the volumes so interesting (especially the horns of his fool’s cap) that I knew it would be great fun to get a brush on him.
How he came to me is an interesting story.Continue reading “Sad Jester”
Another quick and enjoyable bust, this one also by Romain Van den Bogaerts.Continue reading “Anyone Need a Hug?”
I’ve been very productive painting lately, finishing three miniatures since I posted WIP shots of the Norman warrior figure nine days ago. I’m eager to share them all with you, but I am really trying to level up my photography and I’d like to give you higher quality images to enjoy.
Anyway, you can see one of the figures here, hopefully looking a little better than usual.Continue reading “The Shaman Ate Something Weird”
I’ve perhaps turned a corner with Maulg. He seems to be progressing more quickly now. It’s fun to finally see some of the details come into focus.
Read on for some more views and a peek at my new painting space!Continue reading “Big Blue”
At last her search is over. Granny has found an incredible patch of all sorts of mushrooms! Perfect for her soup!
There are a few poisonous fungi in these woods, but Granny knows what’s good and what’s not.
My plan is to add a few animals to complete the scene, but I’m basically done with this fun project at last. Don’t forget to check out the tutorial on sculpting the mushrooms I have scattered throughout this diorama.
