Have bow will travel

I've lost count of how many of these guys that have come across the table over the last year or so, but it's definitely quite a collection. :-)

I can't say enough how much projects such as this and WWX have altered my overall palette.  While I never use more than 6 or 7 colors to paint a particular figure, there are even fewer involved with these guys.

I have painted some of them with as few as four.  Since the greenish tones I have been using already contain a good deal of yellow, that has meant that I can use them with the 'flesh tones' to create some warm leather colors.  Even the snow highlight color is used to create the skin color. ;-)

It's good to be Queen

I always enjoyed this Vampire Queen figure.  I painted a few different versions for it in the color test phase of the Kickstarter.

Originally I intended to use it as the Gold NMM video, but it was ultimately used for the Painting with Powders video instead.

I added some new foliage to the base, and touched up a few things here and there.
