Worked on a couple non-painting things today. First I filled in a base to glue Noreth to and then sculpted a rock to go on it later. I also tried a couple different ways of pressing in textures, but I like the sculpted rock the best. Then for the heck of it I tried to sculpt a little rat based on something Schubert did in his class on sculpting base accessories. A big meh, we’ll see if I can save him with paint (which is what Derek said about his early base additions, heh).
Then I put all the stuff I forgot to glue to the Keeper’s base before I primed it. Woops. Hopefully a couple more layers of primer won’t kill it! This base was started in Proctor’s basing class.
I worked a little on the Red Box Games Keeper at paint day yesterday. Forgot my Alien Goo so I couldn’t work up a good OSL spectrum, so just some basic monochrome secondary light source work.
Hellacious storm last night knocked out my cable/Internet. So I had some time to paint (and play guitar, trying to learn a couple new pieces at up most of the evening). Then of course I couldn’t upload the pics! Anyway, here we go. Apologies for the first, slightly out-of-focus pic.
Tweaked the hair a bit but still needs a bit more work. That side swoop never quite looks right and one of my glazes got out of hand on the front, needs some shadows put back in.
Then I tried my hand at some fancy-schmancy freehand. It’s no Jessica Rich, but we all start somewhere! I drew it out on paper and practiced a few times, then drew it on the mini in pencil because I read somewhere to try that…and the pencil is showing through in a couple spots. Bleh. Hopefully the varnish kills the shine of the graphite.
