I spray primed the throne today, which was taking a bit of a risk. My luck with spray primer is mixed. It seems to have made a smooth primer coat today, but after a couple hours it still felt a smidge tacky, so I'm leaving it for a good 24 hours before continuing.
Instead, tonight I went back to the barbarian. It's been a while for this guy! I continued working on his sleeve, adding some highlighting and starting the rings. Doing those rings were exactly as much of a pain as I thought they'd be. :p I was also hoping they'd stand out a bit more from the leather. Probably when I get some shading and highlights on them, it'll help.
