Back from Reaper ArtistCon! (And, 37!)

So, I spent the last few days at Reaper's ArtistCon. I taught a couple of classes and worked on various things while I was done there. A good time was had by all, or at least, all that I talked to. I did come back with a fair bit of work to do, though. A number of the figures I took down were damaged in transit on the way back. So, I have some repair work to do there. :(

While I was at Reaper I did this little guy:

Also started on this ghost lady. She's all base coated, but no (well, almost no) shading has been done. Usually I do a bit, shade and highlight that bit, then go to the next bit. Well, I started working on her near the end of the trip when I was very tired and not up for detail work. So I just base coated.

I'm experimenting here. I'm going to try shading everything with the same color, and possibly glaze the whole thing with that same color to give the whole figure the same sort of tone. We'll see.

Finished the base for the lizard man, so he's done. Only one more of these guys left!

Lizard Man: armor, spear, basing

Just a bit of work tonight. Finished of the painting; all that was left was the armor and spear. Then I started with the basing and glued on the wings. I'll need to wait for the glue to dry on those things before continuing.

Lizard man: loin cloth

Not a whole lot of progress - it's been a busy few days, and likely to be a busy few more. I put a base coat on his loin cloth, and that's it.

Lizard man: Crest

Put some highlights on his claws and eyes. Mostly, though, I was concentrating on the red/yellow crest.

I love the look it gives these guys. I've got two clans of lizard men I've painted up, and these are the jungle guys.

In any case, most of what's left on him is small things. He has a loin cloth. Some...let's call it armor...plating. And of course, his spear. Anyway, I'm hoping to get him finished up fairly quickly. One more of this type of lizard to go, after this one!

Lizard Man: Flesh Highlights

Put this highlights on his skin today. Base coated his claws, too.

Next will be the plumage.
