So, the holidays have been pretty hectic, as I'm sure they have been for everyone. I was however able to get in some painting and initial assembly on a dual gift (for both my girlfriend and myself). The first up is the sorceress on a giant owl that I picked up from the site here (this is the dual gift, girlfriend loves owls so I talked her into letting me purchase it). I have to say, it's an amazing sculpt. I only wish it had a head more like a barn owl, but I'll probably paint it more like a snowy owl. There are a few mold lines to clean up and a few fills, but over all, it goes together quite well. Plus it will give me a chance to use my airbrush lol.

Next up is the second mini I've ever painted, it's still not quite finished, but I took the advice from the first and I'm going I've improved. I'm planning on doing some free hand on the chest area of the tabard. I'm still having issues with the hair, the paint isn't reacting like it was a few days ago, so I'll probably work on it more. I've also attempted to work in more dynamic shadows and smooth out my transitions. It's a cleric from the Reaper Bones line, and I really have to say, I HATE their bones line. I have a few metal minis from them and the detail comes out muddy on this new line. I'm very displeased.
