First batch of BONES selected for painting

trying to start my painting service business, selected the first batch of Reaper BONES (1st kickstarter, vampire level) for painting.  Some of them are of very good quality and have a lot of details, some of them are so-so, one or two of them got a very... simple face but I'd do something about it.  All in all I expect to sell them for USD10 to USD20 each, not trying to make a profit but just to help with my cash flow.  The list of selected BONES below (the link is for the original metal cast, I'd post the BONE version on hand later)

Actually there are two more of these but they had already been primed so they didn't get to make the group shot.

50178: Andre Durand, Time Chase

50033 > Horace "Action" Jackson

60048 > Feiya, Iconic Witch & Fox Familiar

60095 > Merisiel, Iconic Elf Rogue (Version 2)

03337 > Terezinya, Bone Pander Wizard

03098 > Astrid, Female Chronicler

P02584B: Townsfolk: strumpet [10029 E]

03255 > Callie, Female Rogue with Bow

Basing of dragon rider, almost...

Got the base painted and base coated. The finaly touches was done with molding clay and sandy pastes (forgot proper name).  The clay is water soluble so it was really good at filling in larger gaps of the base giving it is more natural look, plus it was very easy to shape while being wet.

The next step is to make the claws rest more naturally on the rock, and the hind leg touching the base.

"The Escape" - diorama setup

Hi everyone, I am back and hopefully I can keep posting here.  This is going to be a slow project as I am working on a pretty complicated, long-overdue paint job (checkout my FB page if interested:

I love this Sophie, so much so that actually I got two of her, one that I had already finished a while back, and another one sitting in the box since last X'mas.  Here is the one that I had already painted, excuse the poor lighting...  She had been one of the better models sitting on my display shelf for long now, but one thing that keeps on bugging me is that she deserve more, more elements to complete the story, and especially something for her to shoot at...

So when I ordered another Sophie during last Xmas, I order a bunch of other mini to compliment her.  Sticking to the tomb theme I got an army pack of mummies and a mummy lord... Excuse me for not correctly naming though cause I am not really into pathfinder.

The fun thing about doing diorama is that I can play around with the setting ideas in my head for days and days, and gave me excuses for looking up all sorts of stuff like background information on tombs.  One one that I really want to get happening this time is to set a good composition for the whole thing, trying to use techniques like triangle placement, 3:1 golden ratio extra... the current idea is like this one.

Basing, not that good though.

In real life, as i saw dueing all the hiking, the wild roads are pretty flat, even for areas that no one treaded bigger rocks are not that frequent. So the problem here with this base is it still doesn't look natural enough.  The worst part is the claw doesn't fit right with the ground, that means i need to out more clay or green stuff on it... we'd see.

I am back!

Hey everyone, I am back, and this time around I can not only paint but I can also blog! Not exactly the best of times at work there, but it's always good to have some down time at work.

Anyway, this time it is about make the base for a dragon and its rider. Here is our lovely Super Sonico with the Dragon.

And here is the base so far, I teared up a cork board coaster and sprinkled some sands on it. So far so good.

Zombies on board

Hi guys, I am back again.

Very happy with the zombies from Studio miniature this time, the casting of some of them are a bit off, but overall they are great. Comparing to the plastics ones that comes with Zombiecide game they got a lot more details.

I got other kids to add later on, but I am still painting some of them so only one is standing against the advancing horde. It was really fun placing them on the set, best part of setting up this huge (for me) diorama.

Super Sonico arrived~~

introducing the new member to my figure collection: Super Sonico. Not quite as adorable as Yotsuba, she is just as cute and a lot more prettier.  This Figma figure comes with 2 head options (hoodie hat on or off) and 3 face options.  It also got 4 sets of hand options that fit with different posts.  The stand is made up of two poles so she can be lifted and doesn't really need to stand with her own feets.

Although she might got some good curves her story (Comics and TV Anime) is innocent enough: a uni student who part time as model and got her own band (with two other girls).

So hopefully she can really spicy up my entries.  Stay tuned~~

Super Sonico - new mascot for the next diorama

Hi everyone.

There had been some changes to my life so I haven't paint nor blog for a long while.

Next up, I'd finish up my zombie dio and start a new project, along side with doing my last two commission paint jobs for my friend.

First up, introducing Super Sonico, the mascot to make my entries a bit more interesting! I am getting the Figma version of her so she will be just as animated as ever.  Previousely, I had Yotsuba which yield me very good attention and hit rates.
