Off and on over the past several months, I’ve been painting miniatures from Super Dungeon Explore (the Forgotten King expansion), and now, I thought I’d finally share my progress so far.

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

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)

Well, hi there! Long time no write. (Of course, if you’ve been a viewer of this blog for very long, this should come as little surprise.) There is plenty that I should write about – like the fact that I never mentioned that Enduring Chaos is now on sale – but for now, I’m going to deflect attention by showing off some new art.

The latest, completed yesterday:

trapped

This one’s been a while coming, as I originally sketched it in 2010 or 2011, then updated the sketch, inked, and started colouring it last summer before finishing it over the past few days.

ffvi-quilt-square

Terra and Sabin from the video game Final Fantasy VI. For my friend’s wedding, her mother put out squares of cloth on a table at the reception with fabric markers for guests to write messages to the newlyweds, which she then planned to sew together into a quilt. Unfortunately, I had to cancel my plans to attend the wedding last minute, but the mother of the bride shipped me a square so I could contribute to the quilt.

2013-pumpkins

The Avengers, my jack-o’-lanterns for last Halloween. Original art not by me, I only converted the images to pumpkin format and carved them.

And some progress images from the cover art for Enduring Chaos:

The complete background of the cover art, painted from a photo I took a few years ago; the characters, before effects and some fine tuning done after combining the two; and the completed front cover sans text.

Alas, I still have done little art of late – hardly any, in fact. But the art bug has bitten me recently, and I have done a few things on a smaller scale.

For one thing, I’ve been playing a lot of Draw Something. And while most of my drawings there are stick figures, occasionally I get the urge to create something a little more advanced. So, here is a compilation of some of my better turns:

draw-something-04-13

(My personal favourite may be the pancakes.)

I also recently discovered a painting app for Android called Fresco, and while I haven’t even taken much time with it lately, I have done a little playing around with it:

479990_504749259560597_438895248_n

These were both done on a 4.2″ screen using a dollar store stylus. The first was done in about an hour, the second in about twenty minutes. This is art for me these days.

Is more coming? Hard to say. I’m still feeling inspired at the moment, but as was proven to me once again, I get a little too absorbed in making art to do any while watching a little one. We shall see.

Astute viewers might have noticed a shift in my art production recently.  Due to the fact that I’ve had some problems looking at screens lately and that a number of my markers have dried up – in addition to an honest interest in other media – I’ve spent some time experimenting with different types of art lately.

In that vein, when we were informed of a building-wide six-hour power outage today to replace a main electrical switch, I decided to break out my long-unused acrylics.  This was painted from a photo I took at Pedernales Falls state park in central Texas.

Experimentation: Sumi-e April 20, 2011

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.

Cover art for Ruins of Change, the next novel to be published by Brain Lag, to be released June 17.

Close-up:

I dare say this was the most advanced, ambitious, and detailed piece of art I’ve ever done.
