Moving

No not me. I'm moving most, if not all of my miniature related links to my sculpting blog. What does this mean? At the least that I'm trying to get myself moving on opening this thing up officially. So if you do not see your link here don't think I went and dumped it. I'm preparing a new SCULPTING 101 project for the sculpting blog while I finish up the things that have been sitting around for sooo long.I will post an update by Sunday.

Can you hear me now?


I sometimes post my stuff on a site called Wet Canvas. It's a great site with artists of various tastes and levels of technical skill. Anyway I posted a few pictures of this painting looking for feedback. I heeded the advice I was given and reworked the ear and darkened the upper eyelid. I thought the ear looked a bit funky anyway and it did not take too long to fix.

Now it's back to sculpting and preparing a drawing for a new small painting. This one might just be done in oils.

Time to work


I finally finished this 6" X 6" study of a Union drummer relaxing. It was done on Ampersand Gessoboard which is really great stuff. It's basically masonite with a gessoed surface with a touch of texture. It's great stuff and is a lot stronger than the multimedia board I've been using. I hope to not only give this blog a makeover but start my miniature sculpting blog soon. I have a few projects that I'd like to start, and will once a few other get done. These are a lot closer than they were before. I know I'm slow, but I'll take a snail's pace over none at all at this point.Stay tuned.
