I’ve recently discovered the joy of (gaming) miniature painting. So, I thought I’d share my progress here. Most of these figures are from Star Wars: Imperial Assault. For those who aren’t familiar with it, these minis are about 1.5″ tall.



Imperial officers

Verena Talos

Imperial probe droids


Medical droid MHD-19


Gideon Argus

And my latest, R2-D2 (I used a wash for the first time on him, to give him that “seen a lot of action” look)

I also painted an expansion mini for Super Dungeon Explore, ninja Cola (I did not paint the base on this one)

I finally got out a sumi-e, Japanese ink painting, set that was given to me a little while ago and after some very brief research, produced the following painting:

My only instruction was a very simple YouTube video.  As such, my technique, as well as the time taken to grind the ink, needs work, but further practice and instruction should yield better results.  I really love the simplicity of sumi-e and am looking forward to trying it again.

Sketch of the day – July 11 & 12 July 12, 2009

Okay, so I didn’t live up to my promise of sketching something every day this weekend – Friday just ended up being too busy.  But, I did get to do some art this weekend:


Pardon the photo, the paint curled the paper a bit and I decided to let my mother-in-law keep this one.  I don’t actually count this one as my sketch of the day for yesterday, as there was no pencil involved in it, but the painting that I did use pencil on is not yet complete, so I’ll be posting that later.


Today, I just felt like drawing something cartoony.  Although, he came out so cute that I may have to draw him again.

Using my mother-in-law’s oil paints again, this time for a portrait of our dear departed Tiger.

Picture of the week: Sleeping April 12, 2009

Fun with watercolour paints at my mother-in-law’s, my art studio away from home.  Not what I intended for the picture of the week, but the next calendar catgirl isn’t ready yet, so this shall take its place.

Also, I’ve temporarily opened up commissions for custom art.  Full information, including prices, is available here.  Have a look if you’re interested in having me draw something for you.
