Finished - Pirates for Freebooter's Fate
I still have some details and touch-ups to do, but this is what I posted to the Monthly Challenge - Theme: Pirates, on the Dragonpainting forum. Here is the link to view all of the entries.
As I mentioned on the forum, it sure helped having a time-box to crank out a project that I've had waiting in the wings for probably a couple of years now. I can now introduce Freebooter's Fate to my game group!
I began to stall out on about my 5th session, which is why it really helps to time-box a project like this. I typically stall out when it's time to do the detail work and the NMM. This challenge was helpful to force me to paint NMM really fast. I was hoping that I would have some revelations by speed-painting NMM, but nothing jumped out at me. Maybe after I sleep on it a little. But the practice is always productive, even if it just develops more muscle memory.
Regardless, I'm pleased with the result, given that I invested only one calendar week.
