  2. I finally finished one!

    <p>I finally finished&nbsp;a whole mini.&nbsp; I paint slow.&nbsp; I just can't seems to call something done.&nbsp; That's why I do competitions.&nbsp; I have a deadline and have to call something done by a certain date.&nbsp; In this case it was a mini for a small monthly competition at a group on Ebay.&nbsp; I'm especially pleased with this one because the whole thing gelled so easily.</p><p>What some people don't know (those who have followed the ...
  3. 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.

  4. Mindless quoting without analysis or context - bad

    Ok, Just got back from incredibly boring and pointless “scientific” gathering and run into the CNN material on what Dr. Watson has to say about African intelligence. The original link is here This piece is actually very good example of how media operates. The material contains 664 words of which 44 belonged to actually what was said in the subject. Needles to say that the quote on CNN was taken completely out of context and cannot possibly invoke anything but righteous ...
  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 1985

    1985 is my current readership number.  I guess that is the number of views of my blog.  Thats pretty cool.  People are either bored enough, interested enough, or think I am laughable enough to come a see what I am droning on about.  But the number 1985 hits me like a historic brick.  Let's take a look at the year 1985:You friendly, neighborhood Thunderhawker was 12 years old.
    Ronald Reagan was sworn into a second term.
    "We are the world" was recorded ...
  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. Another windy day

    <p>So it was wild and windy in the desert today.&nbsp; They routed the big rigs through the Antelope Valley to get them off the Grapevine (Antelope Velley=valley I live in that's the ass end of hell.&nbsp; Grapevine=Tejon pass where most of the shipping via truck goes through to get fromanyway to LA and back.&nbsp; Notorious for High winds and bad weather).&nbsp; So a mile from my house there's a pile=up involving several cars and 8 big rigs.&nbsp; It took me an hour to ...
