    I'm surprised I didn't see this thread earlier. Looking great so far! Did you also shade/highlight the red or just glaze over the sketching you did before?

    I painted directly over the sketch with thinned red. Not quite glaze thin, but thin enough to lay down good color without overwhelming the shading beneath. I also came in with darker mixes of red to reinforce shadows.

    Currently I've stopped working on this figure as I completed the sketching attempt. I'll finish him after I complete the Elf girl for the Miniature Monthly competition.

    I've let a combination of fear and annoyance at my (lack of) photography skills keep me from posting.


    I finished the first group of Oriental Pulp Villains. Well, mostly finished. I'm still toying with the idea of freehanding a dragon design on the turquoise guy's robe.





    Some other angles of the throne, which I'm pleased with:





    A long time ago I tried to start my own boutique miniatures company, similar to how JoeK got his start, but that failed pretty spectacularly. The sad thing is that I never actually painted The Squire, the miniature that started it all (I designed it, Chris Clayton sculpted it). So, I decided to try my hand at OSL and see what happens:














    And, finally, my first attempt at painting a bust:


    It's an amazing Pirate sculpt from Pegaso:





    I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted to do on the leather belt, so I started there. Also did some base coats on the vest. The next step for the belt is painting in a stamped design on the tongue.

    always been a fan of the squire. Wanna see my version?

    Love the OSL. I would push some shadows though as its a bit washed out without them

    Got about halfway finished on the shadows of the vest this weekend when I decided to start playing around on the other parts of the bust.


    I feel like I've got a good start on the skin. For the hat I think where it's at now will be a great highlight color, so I'll be slowly deepening the shadows.

    A nasty sinus infection knocked me out from painting for a while. Thankfully I'm feeling better now and have made progress on the Pirate bust again.


    The stripes on the kerchief are just the beginning of a simple silver stripe pattern, based on a historical example I found of a scarf from the 17th century.


    The hat is nearly done. Now I need to add some glazes of color for the staining and weathering it's endured out on the high seas.


    I also need to at least base coat the hair before I finish the skin. I know myself and if I complete the skin before doing anything on the hair I'm sure to make a mistake and mark up the skin.





    The weekend also involved buying a new toaster oven for curing sculpey and making up some example pieces. I'm going to be teaching some sculpting fundamentals at the CMON Expo this year. Made 2 each of the examples- going to paint 1 so people can see the difference between the raw piece and how it looks painted up. Will post pics when they're painted.

    I'm getting really close to finishing this project, and it feels great. While I've made a few blunders while trying to use 2 brush blending and loaded brush techniques, which are both relatively new to me, I'm learning and improving.


    Still left to paint:
    The pipe
    The eyes
    Complete the silver stripes on the head scarf
    Button holes
    Final touchups
