I know, in my case 7 or even 6 in one phase are perfect when I have early shift, because I go through those two deep sleep phases I need and am in a light sleep phase when I wake up.
Late shift, not so much. I would need 4 hrs twice to avoid waking up from deep sleep, which doesn't work out for me because of the timeframes.
So it needs to be 5 and 3 hours or fraggle you, cadaver, 6 must be enough.

In a few years, that problem will be done, cause the brat will be able to do everything alone.

Fantastic painting. I'll never reach that level. I'm too old now to learn new stuff :)

Is skeleton number 2 a stripper?

I love the skeletons. I really like the design of them too. I've thought about attempting a marble look on a few things once I start painting (probably within the next couple of days). Any chance you could post a picture of the marble bases so I can see how they turned out?

I definitely will one of these days. It's actually very easy and a satisfying experience once it looks good and I'll post a written tutorial along with the pics.
Thank you for the warm words, guys. As Harry has stated critique, postive, negative, or even questions, are half a painter's inclination.

Love the orcs and skellies KK! Especially the blue glowy eyes. Mr. Saturday, right? I've been wanting to do some undead glowy eyes models myself too after seeing his Fimir army.

No, I don't think any individual entity can claim dibs on inspiring anyone else to paint undead eyes glowing. It's a well-established trope.
In my background world, types of magic will have colors to go with them.
I chose blue - the coldest one - for nethermancy.

Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it. Reminds me of taking pictures of everything I've done in the meantime, which is, dare I say, a shitload.

I don't think Mr. Saturday has ever called dibs on that, but he's definitely MY inspiration for trying this. Had never seen it painted on minis like that before.

Course he hasn't. And he couldn't, as little as anybody else. Even he has the idea from somewhere.
I mean undead with glowing eyes is really a big thing as a fantasy trope.
You can however reproach me with being influenced by Game of Thrones color-choice-wise.
That and the fact that I held this wonderful pot of Formula P3 Arcane Blue in my hands. The technique is now enhanced with Vallejo Fluorescent Blue.

You should also follow more blogs if you find the time. James Wappel's, first and foremost. You'll see things.

All the images on this thread are gone for some reason (well not all but all the ones posted by knightkrawler are gone).

The older ones I took out of the gallery here without thinking about this here thread, that's why they're gone from here, too.
As I have painted shitloads since my last pics (basically a game system worth of minis) and will be trying to take actually good pictures,
several updates are bound to be done when I'll get my ass from the couch somewhere around September (hopefully).
I've been writing (and have finished) my ruleset and cards and all (cf. the link in my signature below) over the last few months when it was just too blazing hot to paint in knightkrawler's attik.
