  1. Amazons, the second coming

  2. Athena WIP - the end is nigh

    Finished the metals, re-did her crest, and finished the shield (motif based on Athenian coins ). She needs a few touchups yet, but almost there. . .

  3. Naked Ladies

    Its frustrating when I discover I need a color of paint that I don't have once a project is going, rather than before I start it. Now I have to wait for the colors to arrive via mail before I can continue on Artemis' shield.She's done otherwise, though I am going to re-do her crest. Oh well, I can continue to work on the next four ladies in this group while I await the mail. Oh sorry, you came here to see naked ladies, not listen to me whine about my paint stock. Here is Artemis sans shield with ...
  4. artemis WIP 2

    I worked out the midtones, and took the edge off the shadows a bit, and now I am quite happy with her flesh tones.

  5. Athena (née artemis)

    A quick sneak peak at Hasslefree's Artemis, who is going in with my Cult of Athena / amazons.

    I was going for a bit more contrasty flesh then usual. . .I think I'm getting there. This was after some inks last night... now to bring in the mid tones a little, and I think I'll have a really nice finish.

  6. Eulen nach Athen tragen (amazon WIP)

    I'm doing these 'amazons' as a warrior cult of Athena.

    Her sacred animal is the Owl, which I decided months ago I was going to render on my amazon's shield in a motif ripped off / paying homage to, my friend's ( ovo ) street art work.

    Tonight I finally got to a point where I can share that part, yay! one

    Oh, and my order from Copplestone came in, so now I'm equipped to start on my contribution to the Frothers Gang Fight game planned ...

  7. Need advice on Amazons!

    I'm working on a batch of Amazons from Fortress Figures and having a bit of painters block. About half the unit is naked, and half the unit is wearing the drapey toga things. Its the togas I'm having trouble picking a colour for. I originally thought I'd do them all random colors, and I did one in a dusty brick red that looks nice.

    Now that I've finished most of the naked ones, I need to get on with the clothed ones and I've re-evaluated doing them all different and come to a mental ...

  8. Spoiled Rotten by Hasslefree

    As I sit here and wait for orders from two companies in the UK, I realize that HF have spoiled me. I just got a package from them, in just over a week.That is damn quick turnaround.
    I'm coming up on just over two weeks waiting for these other two orders, and normally, it wouldn't make me think twice for over seas shipping to take that long . . . but now that I've had the nigh-instant gratification of Deb's superior shipping skills, I find myseld with less patience for the more average return ...

  9. Progress of varying sorts.

    I didn't actually get any painting done tonight, but I did finish my verdigris tutorial!

    Juno is proofreading it, and after whatever edits need to be made after I get it back from her, it'll be done and ready to go. Wheee.

    I also finished the banner for this here bloggy. See? Up there. Yeah. Nifty.

    I also html-ified an old article I wrote for CMON on hedges, so I can incorporate it into the main madponies site when I get around re-coding ...

  10. Copper Acetate; It's the water.

    I'm about 80% done with a tutorial I'm writing for 'Wargames Painting And Modelling' on verdigris.

    I finished the painting months ago, and am now finally getting to the writing and basic layout. It's more fun that I thought it'd be, but difficult too. It's hard to articulate how I approach things sometimes. I paint pretty organically I guess.

    Even though it is turning out to be several paragraphs, the basic tutorial could be shortened to:

    1)here are the color paints ...
