Painting at work: Week 2
Okay, 2 weeks in, and I think things are going well. I've managed to apply paint 8/10 of the past work day lunchtimes.
Lady mage is coming along. Trying to do some decent shading using Burgundy Wine and then I'll be highlighting the dress blending up with some Linen White. I'm not convinced by the lavender bit in the middle. I'm generally happy with how her face is coming along. She does need a bit more work there, and her hair just looks too muddy. I wish the detail with the hairnet she's wearing was a little sharper. Thinking about adding pearls to it. So far it's progressing pretty well. In looking back over it, most of the stuff with detail work is on what I painted yellow. I should have done that in blue so that the gold would stand out better. Ah well.
He's coming along nicely. Now that I've base coated the armor, he's looking much better. Face is still a little soft. The shield arm is really in the way.
I'll probably not be able to finish them off this week unless I bring them home to work on. Which I might, simply because of the detail work to do on them, and then start in with the lizardmen after Thanksgiving.
Need to bring in a pin to unclog bottles. Paperclips don't do it.
Leather brown doesn't cover all that well by itself
Don't bring different minis in the future. You've only got minutes to paint, it divides your focus.
Not having my magnifier is a pain. I keep expecting it to be there
