20141231 Lord Soth + his 1st place metal by Miriya411
20141231 Lord Soth + his 1st place metal
Lord Soth is from Dragonlance, for those that have no idea who he is, Here:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Sot…    

He is a very very bad man. Yet such an awesome mini to paint. I have repainted him at least 5 times before I took him to the Scale Fest in Dallas, TX in May of 2014. I did not think I would win. And I did. Still can not believe it. My brother won more awards than me, but he also had more entered than I. I promised to post this picture last year and I failed. So finally I got around to it. Yay me!

Specs

Lord Soth is a 25mm metal figure from Ral Partha
He is painted with a mixture of AD&D, Ral Partha, Citadel and Formula P3 paints
Total time to paint roughly 24 hours maybe more maybe less

This summer will never end. That and the AC unit we have is slowly dying. Which makes this the worse ever. UGH! Can't paint, can't cook, can't clean. WTF it's too hot. It's like someone turned the oven on broil and forgot about us here in Tx. Not cool bro.

Still working every so slowly with Pegasus and Butterflies. Also working slowly some of my older minis. Cleaning them up mainly b/c I did a piss poor job before. No Lord Soth was not one of those, so he is safe for the moment. Still working on how to do OSL (Object Source Light) and I can't seem to get it right. I know the paint is drying too fast for me to layer it properly so I have to wait for this heat wave to break since the AC is worthless. :grump: I hate being limited to times when I can do things. I see stuff I want to work on and I cant b/c it's too dang hot without a fan on. Can't have the fan on and paint in layers b/c the paint dries up too quickly. GAH!! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻  

Side note, I made an account on Tumblr (under the name Miriya411) if you wish to follow me there as well. No I will not completely move over there, just trying it out.

Dimension Embroidery Kit Pegasus and Butterflies cira 1981 Linda Powell

Cream color linen with pattern stamped on. Stitched with DMC floss and Pearl5 thread.

So very slowly working on it still. All slowed up thanks to pain in my right hand making it almost impossible to do much. Frustrating, yes, very much so. Even more frustrating when elder cat wants to be in my lap when I do stitch. :grump:

Still working slowly. But I finished the underbelly shading. Still working on the front legs and chest. Hoping to be done with the body of the pegasus so I can work on her wings.

Blargh. Its like a smhundred degrees outside. A/C is not cutting it. Too many fans on to do any real painting. I have zero patience when it's so warm. Just been a bum since my last post. Still healing my busted ankle, yes still. I keep seeing things I want to build and paint, but when I try my hands get all sweaty and I end up dropping most of the stuff I am doing. So not a good look. Hair stuck to the painted surface or dust every where b/c you dropped your heavy piece of a garage kit which hit the corner and sent everything flying. Perfect. Just flipping fan-flipping-tastic. And that is why I am doing nothing. B/c I know these things have happened, and will keep going on until I learn to just wait until we have better A/C. GAH! :grump:

What about stitching? Well, after stabbing myself in the thumb, more than once. Loosing a needle, which my husband found by stepping on it. Lucky for him it was bent and it did not stab him. HOW it got there? No freaking clue. I seal those bad boys in an old plastic container, they are stuck in my tomato so how that one escaped I will never know. That and the sweaty hands all over white thread, yeah not pretty. So no stitching either. Though I have found more things I want to badly to make. Just need to be rid of this flipping heat. What is wrong with Tx summer this year. Are we trying to melt the ground into the sky? Too hot. Not enough water. Ugh.

I am a Nerd/Geek and a huge gamer. I love most things that are sci-fi, fantasy and fiction. I am pretty old, and married. Slightly on the oddball/crazy side, but I am never boring. I tend to be very much a birdbrain when it comes to crafts and art. Working on one thing, something else will pop into my head forcing me to stop and go do that other thing or I will go insane. I used to make rich and interesting worlds, characters (the good, the bad) for my hubby to use in our D&D campaigns. Though we stopped playing long ago, I have been trying to write a little about the adventures before they completely leave my head, making room for newer things. Still need to edit and work on those. I work pretty hard on concepts but for what ever reason when I work on them the ideas fall apart and are either forgotten or they stumble out as a giant steaming pile and I am at a lost on how to get it right like it was in my head. As hairbrained as I am, I do manage to once in a while pull off some amazing stuff. But you'll have to stick around to see it when it happens.
