Mama's Painting Madness

Juggling life as a mom of 2 with painting miniatures and experimenting with new techniques. I hope this will be some accountability for WIPs, too

  1. The Long Awaited Photo..

    Here she is, the finished version of my Thief of Hearts #4. I finally got around to taking photos of her. Enjoy! She didn't win anything... ah well.

    Also, I'm back from hiatus. I have a few newbies I'll probably post up later :)

  2. With a Heavy Heart...

    I'm taking a long hiatus from painting. I'm just extremely discouraged and really just am at a point where I don't know if I should bother anymore. I truly don't think I'm very good to begin with, but it's just been proven over and over again (especially these past couple of weeks) and I don't think I can get any better than where I am at right now, and that is sub par.

    So I will be taking a long break from really posting anything. I'll still be around the boards complimenting how ...

  3. Thief of Hearts: WIP 4

    I have officially finished the angel part of this tiny diorama of sorts. I put a wash on her armor last night, did touch-ups, and did her wings as well. I decided that the “blue jay” approach wouldn’t work.. so I left out the white parts of the wings and just went with black and blue. I added the lines after I shaded the wings with a mixture of blue + orange and highlighted it with a mix of blue + light orange + white. I really like how the wings look, my photos do them no justice. I think ...
  4. Thief of Hearts: WIP 3

    Today I broke down and painted the metallics on her armor; this time experimenting with “shading” the armor with regular paint. I know it can be done and have read about it, however I just tried my own take and I must admit, I really like it. Sad thing is, once finished doing the detailing work on the armor, my eyes were shot for the night. I think I probably put a good 5 hours in her today and I base coated her wings.


    I also took a friend’s advice and made her tunic more ...
  5. Thief of Hearts : WIP 2

    I worked on her a bit more the past few days and finally got around to taking photos of her. I’m still thinking the teal is a little too much on the ‘green’ side, but I’m running out of time in regards to fixing it. I’m not even sure how to fix it, besides using a wash on it… and I don’t want to dull down the shading on it, either :-/ so I have a problem.

    I’ve decided to back off with the NMM attempt. Yesterday I spent over an hour attempting to get it just so, but my eyes just ...
