  1. Mother Nature Hates California

    <p>So you all probably saw my post about Mother Nature's ironic sense of humor and the tornado we had here.&nbsp; Well, she keeps it coming once she gets started.&nbsp; There was an earthquake (4.9.&nbsp; Nothing serious) near San Diego yesterday.&nbsp; </p><p>I didn't have power on Saturday from about 4:00 pm to 2:00 am on Sunday.&nbsp; Then the power went out again at 11:00 am on Sunday and just came on at 1:00 am Monday.&nbsp; The 14 lb roast I cooked ...
  2. Black ork warboss from AOW-

    For the last week I was painting this guy. Comments are, as usually, very much appreciated. My personal issue here is the metallic on his armor and the color of dead heads on his back. In hindsight I should've painted him all red the same way I painted gauntlets but it is somewhat too late now. As for the heads… not sure, probably one or two purple wash with rehighlighting with something white…  and finally, completed. Not sure why it took me so long to put it up   ...
  3. These ducks are almost ready to ROCK!

    So, I have most of the basic coats on the minis; working on 10 at a time allows me to miss at least one thing every time.  These two photos show the state of two of the ten ducks, but the ducks in general are around the same state of painting.
  4. More base coats of paint

    Progress.  I've added a few more base colors for the clothes and the weapons.  Selected three of the ten for the BLING photo shot.
  5. It always happens when you don't want it to...

    Yes, boys and girls, I'm talking about personal injuries. I've been excited and motivated about a few of the figs that've been on my WIP desk for awhile now.  Actually got some paint on 'em, and was hoping to spend some time this weekend, maybe even finish one.And then I went and crushed a finger.  Was doing some yard work, cleaning out a bunch of concrete that used to be a raised flower-bed wall.  Was tossing a particularly awkward (and very heavy) piece of concrete into the bed ...

  7. Day 2 - feathers - beak, feet - wild yellow hair

    This is a test to see how my photos with BLING work here! The feathers are painted an offwhite - with later highlights in pure white.  Bill and feet are painted in a very old paint called "create a finish."  The wild feather hair is done in bad moon yellow.
  8. Check is in the mail!

    So I got my check, people's packages (except the good friend's who's package needs 1 more item in it) have been sent and life is getting better.&nbsp; Now all I have to do is get the tooth pulled and I can be bright and pleasant again.&nbsp; Sorry for the wining.&nbsp; couldn't help it.

    You see, i work at an ad agency and we've got a really nice camera, a Canon EOS 5D with a nice 28-135mm lens. We've also got a couple of lights with softboxes.
