Scratching the itch

Since returning from Adepticon and MFCA, I've been itching to paint.  I've forced myself to be disciplined, however, because I needed to devote time toward a house project -- replacing the air conditioning.  While baby-sitting contractors at home, I took advantage of the time at home to attend to years-old organizing and cleaning projects.  I was true to my goals, and I forsook the paintbrush for digging through bins, closets, and bookshelves.

With mission accomplished, I rewarded myself today with a couple of painting sessions.  I just wanted to focus on one figure -- no big projects.  Not even one where I necessarily want to apply all the ideas that are brimming in my head from the shows.  Just something to warm up and ease my way back into it.

This orc was my first victim.  He is among a multitude, an army of orcs of goblins, but he got singled out for special attention.



I might add some more color to his face and/or decorate his shield.  Or I might just leave him as is.  I'll sit on it for a while.

With the orc and I pondering one another, I decided to finish my Toad Shaman for Alkemy.  I played a game last night, and I'm tired of seeing my Aulok Nation half-painted on the tabletop, especially the Toad.  He is now ready to shower his healing blessings on his brethren.

  1. Started painting my Aurloks, but I'm still not sure what to do with the feathers--your shaman certainly inspired me to have fun with some wild colors!
