Hound: Fur, face, shirt

Got back to the hound today. I finished off his fur and face, did his shirt, and started on the leather.

I don't expect to have a lot of time to work on him tomorrow, so I expect it'll take a couple days to finish him up.

Harlot: Face, Hair, Blouse

Put in a little work on the harlot this evening.

I'm finding that while the Pathfinder paint set has many lovely saturated colors (none of which are in evidence here - you'll see them as I move along) it's kinda short on neutrals. There's not much there in the way of browns, flesh tones, and so on. I struggled a little to get shades for her skin and hair colors I liked. As it is, I like what I have now well enough, but if I were doing a bunch of figures with just this paint set I might find the limited options in browns and other neutrals frustrating after a time.

I think I need to bring the highlights on her skin up a bit.

Hound, Strumpet

Today was a busy day at work, and when I got home I was not feeling up for working on something that I was going to want to put a lot of actual effort in to. So, I pulled something simple out of the Bin of Pre-Primed Minis. This figure is from one of the Reaper Townsfolk sets.

That is some attitude right there.

I've decided to paint this figure using entirely paints from the shiny new Pathfinder Paint sets Reaper is producing. It will add a little challenge in that it's a more limited set of colors, and they are not handily set up in triads. So, there's no obviously called out shadow color for that skin tone; I'll have to get a little creative to select (or mix) suitable tones from what's in the set.

I did want to get some work in on the dog, so I did a base coat on his fur.

As expected, here's the beagle with his base finished. Also went back and detailed his little earrings, which I missed the first time around.

And I also got the next and last of the dogs ready to go:

Beagle Barbarian

As I thought, I just have to finish up his base next time.

This is probably my least favorite of the dogs to work with so far. He has a lot of detail, but it's all pretty soft and indistinct. It's hard to tell what some of it is supposed to be.

Who's a Good Boy?

Continuing on with the dog. I finished his fur and face, and whatever the body sleeve thing is he's wearing.

I'm expecting to get him done or mostly done tomorrow, with hopefully just the base left to do after that.

Beagle Barbarian, Demon

Back from ReaperCon! I won a couple of awards, which I meant to get pictures of to post here, but didn't. I'll get those tomorrow. I did quite well this year - ReaperCon Sophie got gold in Painters, the cowboy from late last year won best Scale 75 Historical, and the big one: the Noblewoman won me a gold Sophie in Painter's. It's my first gold Sophie, and I'm super thrilled!

Now that I'm back, I'm starting my next projects:

This is the next Dungeons & Doggies commission guy. I've got two left; I'm probably going to do them both and get this finished up.

And the demon bust...I don't remember if I showed pictures of him before I left or not. Anyway, I've cleaned him up, done some gap and bubble filling, and rebuilt the tip of his left ear, which broke off. I'd been debating whether to rebuild it or leave it and treat it like a battle wound, and went with rebuilding it. However, I like the idea of the scarred ear, so I might go back and cut a wound into it.
