@Caedrus My July pledge completed (48ss total) Thanks again to @Stranglelove for taking the pictures

Hi there!!!  I finished the Obsidian Oni for this month! This adds up to 7ss x3 = 21 SS   Been super busy this month so i went quite fast with those guys, not my best work, but i'm pret

My pledge for this month: Tanuki. I need to get better at taking before photos but I always just get carried away painting before I remember to do it.
These guys were so fun to paint, I'm pretty happy with how they came out, I was torn on what colour to go for with the pots but I think terracotta was the right decision - I think the green liquid provides a nice contrast to that.

So that's 5ss x 3 = 15ss for this month.

In terms of inspirational painters:
1. Angel Giraldez - I'm sure someone has already mentioned him. Although his skill level is way beyond anything I will ever be able to achieve, observing his colour composition and especially the contrast in his painting is incredibly useful.
2. Emil Nystorm - who you might be familiar with from the Squidmar channel, has a good range of videos, which I've found provide some great approaches to a variety of basic to advanced techniques. One of his videos is actually what convinced me to finally give NMM a real go.
3. Kingscorner Painting - not sure what the name of the artist/s is but they have some amazingly clean looking paintjobs up on their social media.

They looks great. Home-made or produced by some company?

Thank you! They were bought - don't know the name o the store but Mr @Scatterbrain should be able to help here. I cut the largest two in half to have more markers. Each was sprayed with a layer of Satin Varnish with some glazes of turquoise in the recessess + light drybrush of pure white to pick up the edges. I thought 10 would be going overbboard but ended up using all of them at one point in my last Eurypides game.

Thank you @Viruk, I hope to get some more help from Mr. @Scatterbrain.

Thanks in advance.

@Caedrus sorry I'm late, was out of town and completely forgot to post pictures before leaving. If this needs to be a Mulligan and count for next month, let me know, that's fine.

Spending entirely too much time trying something a little different on the Widow Weaver this month:

I've bought so many sets of those for scatter, makes a board pop.  Haven't tried it for ice pillars, maybe I'll have to check that out.

If you're looking into them, I've picked up a few of their 'custom colors' sets (went for a blue / white transition) and they look super sharp.  I'd definitely consider the custom option as gadzooks is fast / helpful and it's only a bit more expensive.

@Purple Mist I just did an order from gadzooks and noticed that while that main listing has a lot out of stock there do seem to be individual listings without pictures for the same things.  I ordered some fleur orange crystals to test it.  So this would prolly be the same small Crystal packs
