I stopped painting around the time I stopped blogging except for a brief stint in the fall, which may well be my painting pinancle. The last figures I did were for Malifaux. Sonnia Criid's crew. Here's Sonnia:
Here's one of her crew, Samael Hopkins:
CMON, but they were a personal best, a manifestation of real progress.
And then I stopped painting for six months. Train wreck. Painting is not like riding a bicycle, at least for me. It's like I had to remember which end of the paintbrush to use. I would not have believed skills would be lost so quickly! I've been back at it about 2 months, painfully trying to recapture that moment. The first few week were so frustrating I seriously thought about just getting rid of everything.
But I'm back now. I can sit at the painting table and enjoy it again. And I am going to try to get back to blogging. I have a backlog of articles I worked on before my "painting recession" that I'll get up, share the trials and tribulations that lead to the pause in publishing, as well as photos from GZG-ECC and Historicon.
Thanks for stopping by,
