Back from WME

World Model Expo was great. Busy, tiring, but great. I took some classes, saw some friends, and this happened:


That's a bronze for the diorama. Considering the level of competition, I'm very happy with that.

I have some commissions to work on for a while, so posts will be fewer for a few weeks. But I do intend to get back to finishing things that I left half done to concentrate on the diorama. It'll also be time to start on my ReaperCon piece soon. Here's a preview of that:


That's just the start of layout. It's going to be the dancing girl on some kind of cobblestone or maybe dirt street, with a bowl for collecting coins. I need to cut the base off her and get a bowl. That one came from the Twisting Catacombs scenery kickstarter, but it's too big. The thing has a diameter wider than her hips! So, I'll need to sculpt a bowl, probably. I also need to decide if that's the right size base.

Diorama: Done!

All done, and with almost a whole week to spare!



I don't anticipate doing another project of this size for a while. Glad I did it, learned a lot and I'm pretty happy with the result (though it has flaws that I'll need to keep in mind and address in the next one). But I'm looking forward to getting back to smaller, faster projects for a while.
