Painting Miniatures is like an Extreme Sport

The reason I say ‘like an extreme sport’ because:
1. That tiny fuck up just ruined your shit
2. My heart is going a million miles a second when I’m painting … hoping I’m not about to ruin my shit

So, another Myranda progress update (sorry about so many of these…I’m just excited).
Either way, I realise the photo from the back is quite bad, but I realised I haven’t shadowed the feathers well enough – and I appear to have accidentally washed her lower back with the brown wash I was trying to put on her belt. *sigh*
Will have to attempt to rectify my caffeine induced extra-pyramidal side effects, stop shaking and fix it!

Again, again, again – WHEN will I get a hair colour? I’m sick of looking like an elderly citizen!

Uh El, I think you not only gave me a lower back tan – but I think the colour term you’re looking for is DARK ROAST.

This will never be a miniature

Due to my enthusiasm for reading about other peoples miniature painting, the general rules of Malifaux and everything else tiny related – I decided to poke my toe into the community and stalk the Wyrd forums for ideas.

What I came across, was this brilliant artist making HIS OWN MINIATURES.

Mind = blown. I didn’t even know people could do this. And with such skill, and artisan, and professional talent. (See the thread I’m talking about here).

Either way, the artist (Mako) was also posting up some shots from attempting a go at some free 3D modelling software. And I’ve always wanted to have a go – so I headed over and downloaded Sculptris.

Here is the result of my ever pathetic first attempt. Although – I would love love love to make something I was proud of and maybe one day have it 3D printed.

TL;DR : First attempt at 3D Modelling and digital airbrushing. Don’t judge! Haha.

I leave you with these horrific images:
