Let’s start with some good news this week and then we can discuss the not so good. Hellboy is finally done. It didn’t take as long as a typical display piece does but three weeks on a single miniature is still plenty of time and I have to admit that I’m looking forward to painting … Continue reading Wild Hunt Hellboy is Done
This week’s update is action-packed with triumphs, humiliations, and lots of pictures. First up, I have made a fair amount of progress on Hellboy this week. I think it might be useful for me to do a side-by-side comparison image of last week to this week. Here is what the front of the mini from … Continue reading More Hellboy, New Acquisitions, and a Miserable Room Tour
Forget the drama of Harry, Charles, and William. The real King of Britain is here! That’s right, Hellboy gets that title in the Wild Hunt volume of the comics, which happens to be one of my favorites. And that is the inspiration for the sculpt I’m working on comes from. It also happens to be … Continue reading Hellboy – King of Britain
This past week, I hit a brick wall on the Witch King miniature I’ve been working on for this year’s Golden Demon. As a result, I am no longer going to work on the project with an eye towards entering it in a painting competition. I will explain why and some lessons I’ve learned along … Continue reading Making and Learning From Competition Painting Mistakes
Let’s get the unpleasant news out of the way first. Not too long ago I mentioned the threat of layoffs and well, they happened pretty much out of nowhere this week. I was lucky to not be affected by them but the whole experience was pretty jarring to say the least. The company I work … Continue reading Hellboy – Roger Returns and More Website Metrics
Its good to be back after taking a week off. There’s plenty to talk about so I won’t waste any time. The first thing I got done was another caveman. Like the previous two, these minis don’t take long at all to paint so it was nice to get another done quick. I showed off … Continue reading Savage Core and Hellboy – Neanderthals and a Homunculus
It has been an eventful week so I’m going to bring back the rapid and random thoughts format for today’s update. I have not worked for over a week. Why you ask? I spilled water on my laptop on Thursday last week and my company has not been able to get me a replacement and … Continue reading Hellboy – Professor Broom and His Bane
There is a lot to discuss this week so I won’t waste any time. I managed to finish some more doors for Hellboy today. These haven’t been varnished so they look a little more matte than they will when all is said and done but I’m happy to have eight out of fifteen doors done … Continue reading Hellboy and Fallout – Manual Labor
Who is the greatest superhero ever? Its not Superman or Batman. Its not Spider-man or Wolverine. The real answer is Lobster Johnson. Who is Lobster Johnson, you ask? He is a secondary character from Hellboy that is so good, he got his own series of comic books. Lobster is very similar to The Shadow, for … Continue reading Hellboy – Fear the claw!
Stop me if you’ve heard this before. I make some progress on the diorama only to not have some kind of supply that I need and then have to take the week off from it while I wait to get said item. That is exactly what happened again this week so I don’t have anything … Continue reading Hellboy – Doors to Somewhere?
