Oscar: Done!

I've finished up Oscar the Cat. Next time I'll place him on the diorama, and then that whole piece will be done. Finally. Yay! It's been a good experience and I've learned a lot, but I'm ready to be done.

Oscar: Fur, Shading and Highlighting

I did the fur texture, shading, and highlighting on Oscar's body today. I actually got a lot farther than I expected to. The idea was to put some fur texture on everywhere with a slightly lighter color, and then add additional texture and shadow by adding additional small strokes of a darker color. Same for highlights, just with a lighter color.

I'm not displeased with the results, though I think the first side came out better than the second. That's unfortunate because it's the 'outside' side, the side his head is turned away from, that's going to be more visible.

Diorama: Oscar

Here's Oscar. If he comes out reasonably well, he's the last bit for the diorama.

It's not going to be easy - I plan to try texturing his fur, which is going to be a lot of work and may not come out at all.

Diorama: Bits

Yes, it has been a while. I've been on vacation for a couple weeks. As usual, Origins was a lot of fun!

I've started adding bits and details to the diorama. New today is the cup, the drops of wine, and the sword leaning against the wall. I'm going to add some vases, and maybe a cat.

Diorama: Placing Barbarian Barbie

With Barbarian Barbie finished, I put in her place in the diorama today. I did also re-do her sword and I'm happier with it now.

Her feet aren't even, so I need to go back and try to put some putty under her back foot because right now it's floating a bit, which is never good.

But with her in place, all the major parts of the diorama are together. Now I just need to add a few details here and there.

BB: Done!

I'm not thrilled with everything on her; in particular I don't much like the sword. But time's running out, so I'm calling her done.

BB: Armor

Worked on shading and highlighting on her armor. The sections on her legs are done, apart from any tweaking I may (or may not) decide to do. I also did shading on one of her shoulders.
