Alright, so when approaching this miniature I assumed a few things.
1. The skirt would be the hardest to paint/shade etc.
2. The fan and umbrella would be fairly simple.
So, even though it would appear I was correct on point 1, I was GROSSLY underestimating that whole umbrella/fan deal. I have literally spent my last 3 painting sessions with Painting Sage, just on these two items.
He seems to think it’s because now I’m stressing about them and over thinking the whole thing that caused this but still. They have turned out, pretty sub-par.
I think I’m going to step away, and leave them both and work on the bows/details before I come back to them. They’re honestly doing my head in!!
This is a little bit of a back track, but here is a nice shot Painting Sage took of my mini for me!! As promised.
Onto slightly different news, so if anyone remembers a very generous lovely friend of mine gave me his collection of Warhammer 40K miniatures to paint?
After all of my chattering on about minis, and paints, and games and awesomeness – he sends me this photo with the captions of “LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO”
Yaaaay! More friends to talk miniatures to, and paint with! Yayayayay.
Now, the title of my blog was because between painting, work, life etc I have also been busy playing Torchlight II.
I got this in the recent steam sale for about $6 and have to admit – WELL WORTH THAT MONEY.
I would almost describe this game as Diabloesque. But it’s quite a bit faster paced in regards to Action/Quests and levels.
I would honestly recommend this game to anyone that enjoyed either D2 or D3, or Path of Exile. All great games in my opinion.
Well lovies! Talk again soon! Hopefully I will have some Halloween themed basing to you show you next time!
