    Monthly Painting Challenge - July

    Whelp. Strike three and I'm out of here. Quite a pity, but july was even more busy than june or may. I'm seriously starting to regret letting may go so easily, since I'll finally have the time to paint again from august onwards and may was just a bit of a motivational low. Well, too late now.

    Last chance. I'll keep pledging Von Schill but I'm afraid I'll be dropping from the challenge this month. I really can't find the time to paint during summertime.

    Sigh, time for a second mulligan for me. Still been busy with the same stuff and having to move temporarily and make due with a reduced hobby table has put a big hamper on my enthusiasm.

    Nicknames and avatars

    Back in the early 2000's my family found a Tolkien-themed Elf name generator and my name came back as Amdor Elensar. A couple of years later my moody teenage self got fed up with my previous naming conventions (the typical 12-year-old stuff) so I tried Amdor for the heck of it and it's stuck ever since. Sometimes it's AmdorElensar or some other variant, but I have a habit of dropping the surname when possible, because back then remembering login details wasn't a thing and I was too lazy to write the extra 7 characters. Haven't really found an avatar that struck a chord with me, so I switch it quite often based on my current interests or whenever I find something neat I can use. The current one is the Moon Precense from Bloodborne, one of my favourite games in recent years.

    I'll try to finish Von Schill this month. Can't be bothered to post a new picture as it hasn't really progressed in the past two weeks.

    Well, this month will be my first mulligan. Been too busy with other stuff and not really feeling like paiting even when I had the time. Hopefully I can do better in june.

    Time for a mid-month WIP. Schill hasn't progressed that much with just one week of work, but I'm not in a hurry yet.

    Good thing I managed to snap the pictures for last month in time, because the delay I mentioned ended up taking a week longer. Anyways, I'm back and this month it's time to paint the man, the legend, the guy who has been sitting on my painting table for nearly four years, Von Schill! (So may pledge is Von Schill for 15 ss)

    The weather decided to give me a chance to snap some pictures, so here's the performer for 7 ss total this month. Honestly, I'm not too happy with this one. The sculpt is rather tame to begin with, so deciding to go with a darker blue colour scheme didn't do it any favours. Still, can't be bothered to try and improve it, since she probably won't be seeing much table time anyway (my least favourite sculpt out of the three performers, including the LE). I would have loved to take part, but was unsure if the creatures I have available would have been considered "too humanoid," and I knew I couldn't finish any of them in time even if they were fair game (I have a problem with bigger models and my options were Banasuva, Snow Storm and Desolation engine).

    Probably will be finished by friday, but pictures might get delayed as far as the 2nd.

    Dove's done (2 ss in total so far). Painting shaded gold on the raised areas of the body and gem effects on those tiny eyes was rather strenuous, but I'm happy with the results. The platinum could have been a shade or two lighter, but that's more of an issue with having only one grey metallic paint on hand (and not being willing to try NMM). I'll probably fix that with the other doves. @Purple Mist Now that the gold parts are a bit shinier, I doubt it needs any more finishing. Otherwise, I agree with you and usually try to put some rust on my models (and will try oxidized effect in the future). Sizewise the Doves are rather manageable, but can be difficult if you start going crazy with the details. I will also put some makeup on the performer but try to avoid going overboard, so the final version might be quite mild. @H4ml3t Red whip is an awesome idea, but otherwise I'm not feeling the red on this model (the other one will be mainly red and I want the two to contrast eachother). Do you think white trims/highlights/details would look any good?

    Time for a mid-month WIP (rainy day, so the picture is a bit crap) I probably could have finished the dove already, but since all that's left on it is loads of tiny details, I've been putting it off for a while now. There's two weeks left, so it probably won't cause an issue. The performer on the other hand, I'm afraid will end up rather dull with the colour scheme I'll be going with. Does anyone have tip/tricks on how to make her look like a proper flashy showgirl?

    @Purple Mist At least mine came with a flight stand for each dove. Of the bases themselves; Yeah, that would be effective, but way beyond what I'd be willing to do for a 2 ss peon (also there might be some confusion whether the dove or the performer is the operative part). I was thinking more of small stage props and magic puffs to support the doves, like on the original metal ones.

    @Purple Mist Unfortunately I haven't gotten anything special planned. I might try to base the other doves more lavishly, but for the first one I just want to see what the flight stand looks like.

    This month I'll try to get a performer and one mechanical dove painted.
