We have returned from Adepticon! For the moment, at least. Only minimal unpacking of the studio for now, but I wanted to post some images of a very fun miniature that I was glad to paint.
This is from Parallax Miniatures, and it is a subject matter that I have wanted to paint for years. I had thought about sculpting a race of cat/human hybrid characters for a long time, but someone has done it for me! Yay!
The moment I saw the miniature, I had this kind of scene in mind. Obviously, the new bark and branch basing style figured prominently.
Many thanks to Mr. Justin and his fantastic snow products. And yes, I finally used his crushed glass/water effects method as it was intended . :-)
I wanted to see if I could match the Army Painter snow covered tufts, and the only way I could see to do that was to use the Secret Weapon method. I sprinkled 'regular' snow flock powder on top of the mixture before it dried, with really amazing results.
Thanks again to Mr. Justin, and to Parallax Miniatures!!!
