I've got this... I think...

So now I have a pattern of operations for mini-painting, which definitely includes making sure the kitties are fed before I sit down to do any detail.

All that's left at this stage is a HELL of a lot of dotpainting and touch-ups on any spill-over. Since I've been really careful this time, that's not a lot of touch-ups.

Now I really have to investigate washes at the Warhammer Shoppe in Chermside. Wheee...

But not until tomorrow, when the last coats of my guy's red trim are dry. I'll be bringing all the dudes I've painted to show my attempts. Maybe get some recommendations.

It's Tuesday, so I should photograph my Dude So Far for my Patreon peeps.

I also need to find time to make something music-esque for my podcast, edit another episode and all that blablabla. Oh, that I could stop time and do all the things I want to do...

But I gotta use the time I got, so... Let's use that.

Challenge #02517-F327: Kintsugi Badass

The person was a bodyguard, and damn good at their job. However, others did not realize this when they saw the person. Sure the legs could have been replaced long ago with what they made from their work, but it was rather amusing when an enemy saw the bracings and the skin suit covered stumps, and assumed the lack of legs meant being helpless. -- Anon Guest

Sometimes, when the Human was in a good mood, they called themselves Brad the Broken.

So. How do I pitch something to Netflix?

In case you haven't heard, Toastyhat/Emptyfeet has finished her second video which is potentially part of a trilogy or more depending entirely on her moods and desires to get anything done. Even as a duology, it has a happy ending and I am glad of it :)

But I really want to see this entire thing as an animated series on Netflix. Because I think it deserves it. I would binge the living shit out of something like that. It's that awesome.

Challenge #02516-F326: Once a Sword

Better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war.

Humans, while striving for peace, prepared for war. -- Anon Guest

Let's go in the garden, you'll find something waiting... -- Terran children's song.

This is a gardening planet. Call it Agraria. It has been specifically engineered for farming food crops for Terrans by Terrans. The people who choose to live there are called Vegans and they are, by and large, peaceful. They do not eat animal sourced

I got the shakes :P

Unfortunately, I have learned what is too shaky when handling thick, white paint. Dangit.

I was able to thin the blobby mess RIGHT down to the thinnest possible layer, so I'll be repainting at my earliest convenience. AKA - NOT when I've consumed like four to five caffeine tubes.

...it was a fun stream, this morning. Toasty is SO CLOSE to finishing her fid and I can't wait to share the finished product with you and -frankly- watching a work of art

Challenge #02515-F325: Pig Hero

I knew it was futile to ask, it’s nearly impossible for someone like me. But I needed to know, to clear the doubt in my mind, so I can push forward. With a shaken voice I asked, “I can be a hero too, right?” -- Anon Guest

The Great Golden Leader looked down at me, cloak and hair flowing in the wind. She was a vision of muscular perfection and might. Her magnificent dark skin marred slightly by a few battle-scars.

I'm kind'a sad now

So that was the last session of the year and it was cut short because our DM has a dreaded throat lurgi. He's off to the States until January so our shenanigans are on HEAVY pause.

Therefore I am painting my 3D-printed mini from HeroForge(tm). Google them. It's like the Ultimate Character creator. Be warned - it might chew your bandwidth a lot, and it will be slow.

That said, HeroForge is a great way to spend $50 [plus postage and

Challenge #02514-F324: Roll For Initiative

Ever wonder what it would be like to disappear into your fantasy and not have to return? Video games are like that, online role play games even more. It can be more powerful than any drug, and far more seductive. But what happens when the power goes out and the person is forced to face reality? -- Anon Guest

This is a box. This is a window. Turn it on and view another reality. There were other boxes like it, in days

Dee AN Dee! Dee AN Dee!

It's game night tonight, so I'm going to be down by who-knows-how-much for snacks and drinks.

I've reached my 3K for this week in KOSBOB, I'm not painting any minis today. Not even putting on a coat of primer. Pippi is probably going to get her stitches out tomorrow -yay- and I am already planning to be wrecked for the day.

There's also a Toasty Stream EARLY on Sunday morning, so immediately after that is when I shall be putting primer on

Challenge #02513-F323: Sensible Steps

The two ships had collided as one had a severe navigational error and the other had been stolen by a youth who wanted to go out for a joyride. They crashed together on a planet that, for both of them, was just barely habitable. The surviving humans called out to the other ship and found it to be filled with Nox who were even younger than the human youths who were barely into their teens. Despite a rocky start, the two groups

Writing Stuff and Learning Things

Thursday. The day I can potentially cut my novel-writing week short by just... spending all day writing my novel.

Why? Tomorrow is D&D night and I want to try catching a Nanna Nap(tm) so I have more energy for roleplay shenanigans. Allegedly.

If I can write 1500 words today, I am a legend. I'll be working on the Instant first, of course. I may or may not be doing any fanfictiony stuff today. It all depends on my mental

Challenge #02512-F322: One Complex Thought Experiment in the Void

An empath and a sociopath trying to help each other interact with people. -- Anon Guest

Here are two humans. Call them Abe and Bee. Abe cares too much about others and other's feelings, to the point of neglecting their own. Bee doesn't care about anyone but themself. They are both abnormal Humans. They are both trying to get back to civilisation as they know it with a group of strangers for a crew on their kludged vessel. They're a rag-tag bunch

Crisis... not over yet

Pippi has had a reaction to her stitches/surgery because she's a gadabout little acrobat with a bad dose of the Zoomies(tm). So they're leaving the stitches in until Saturday, and she's staying locked in the laundry during the nights when there's nobody to supervise her.

Getting stressed about things just encourages her to be more Zoomy, so I purposely chilled and did a bit of painting.

Things I have learned:

  • DIY washes don't really work on faces
  • Drybrushing with plain

Challenge #02511-F321: A Pound of Cure

I told you not to come here during New Years but nooooooo “I want to experience the culture there” and now we’re running low on stress relief medication -- Anon Guest

"In my defence, the cultural displays looked very pretty and relatively harmless," said Prrit. Ze was currently huddled under a big, soft blanket and had mufflers over hir tympanum. "They looked so pretty and the music was so nice."

"Mus--" Human Dee tutted and tisked. "You had the offensensitivity filters

Hello Madness

I have until roughly 10:00 to do all my Patreon stuff. Then it's off to the shrink for fun times in BusyLand. Then home-again to finish off whatever's been left undone and get me some ice cream because I will DESERVE IT by then.

My practice dude is looking almost finished and I'm kind of proud. I have learned lots from him and he may never be Actually Finished to a point where a model painter would point and say, "nice"
