I've seen this figure painted many times, but I've never seen anyone do it with a kitten. This gives a common figure my own personal touch.
I am beginning to work in earnest on my freehand painting. I did this skeleton head on the shield as I felt it would compliment the heads on his clothes.
This is a 28mm heroic scale BONES figure from Reaper Miniatures.
What I like most about doing weathered metals is that in order to do them correctly you must be sloppy when building up the layers. And that set me free. Normally I spend a great deal of time trying to neatly build up 5-7 thin layers to get depth of colour and try very hard to keep things neat and tidy.
This is the second post in one week from me and I feel terribly guilty for asking people to visit my blog again so soon. But to offset this I won't be posting for another two weeks as we finally have running water again and I will be busy getting the house back in order. Also I am going to be doing a rather large diorama for my Heroes entry and I am already a little behind on it. My Vehicle entry is done except for basing and fine tuning my highlights.
Please understand if I am not in to comment next week.
