These are the days of my life…

Heh. I crack myself up.

So, I finished a mini for a friend of mine. He said he wanted a barbarian/viking, and so I started digging through my minis box(es), and found something suitable. It was only after I was about halfway done that I realized he was Hercules. But whatever. I made him a viking shield, and it turned out okay. He was happy with it, which means I’m happy with it. ☺

He turned out pretty well for a tabletop mini,  and considering I only spent about 5 hours on him. He was a fun mini.
I also worked some more on my exchange mini. I’m changing some stuff up since I took these pictures,  but I’m planning on having her come out of a saloon.

Now it’s square, but you get the idea.

Then I ordered some scale75 paints, and they came in! I really liked working with them. I still have a lot of work to do to get my skin the way I like it. I really like the way these paints work…. They’ve got a really great coverage,  but they also blend better than anything else I’ve used.

I kinda played around with it to see how much blending and stuff it would take to make these really work for me. This guy had a lot of exposed skin,  so he became my Guinea pig.

He’s a little bit pinker in real life.

You can see someof the contrast better here.
Gonna work some more on the skin paints and my exchange mini. Hope Y’all like it!

  1. I like the freehand design on the shield. Far more symmetrical than I can manage myself. Nice work on the wood grain too. I find that figs pectoral muscle a bit funny (the sculpt), not sure what it is exactly…..points too far lateral?
