Welcome back to Menagerie Musings, where we like to pride ourselves (myself?) on...things? This mid-week blog is for updates regarding the progress our Fearless Leader is making toward finishing our custom orders; as well as touching on some more spoopy related miniatures.
As someone with no artistic talent, it truly does amaze me how elegantly EASY someone who knows how to draw or paint can make it look. Now, don't get me wrong; I know it's not easy. It takes years of hard work and practice to get to the level I'm privy to everyday. But the mixing, matching, and theory itself behind the colors is fascinating to me. As I write this, I'm spying on our "FL" casually scrolling through reference pictures while she lays down some amazing brushwork on what I can only guess is a Werewolf Paladin or Cleric. All while listening to The Last Podcast On The Left. Impressive, right? Also, don't tell her I'm spying. SERIOUSLY.
I've been very excited to print the scatter terrain and miniatures for the "Untitled October Spooky-time Sales Event Extravaganza". I feel like I am starting to really get the hang of the software we use and the quirks of our machine. We print using an Anycubic Photon S. I personally find the machine to be really simple to use and easy to clean, which makes my life easy. We have been discussing internally the idea to purchase a second, different machine. I know I would personally love to hear any and all suggestions regarding what resin-based printer you think would do the job.
That's all for today, folks! As always, be sure to stay safe, stay healthy, and keep taking care of yourself. Stay amazing, you wonderful person.
