I think it’s actually been a few years since I’ve posted anything so to prove I’m not dead (or at least that some dude with impenetrably strange motives and mad skills is impersonating me) I thought it time to post again.
For anyone who remembers my last post I believe I promised to start telling the tale of the Dangerous Boys infamous SNOMAR adventure. However seeing as I’ve drifted a little of course since that post I don’t have enough drawings from that adventure to do this yet. Instead I’ve decided to share an update on the miniatures sculpting I’ve been doing.
Firstly the miniature I’ve been sculpting of Billy is complete! He looks like this.
Billy’s dramatically intense rangers stare is possibly his most potent weapon.
And here he is all serious and side on after I adjusted his vibrance or exposure in photoshop to make him “POP” (can’t quite remember which or how much, it was 3am, should have written it down)
Dazzlingly adjusted Billy
I couldn’t be bothered trying to take a better picture so I decided to make photoshop earn it’s place in my household.
Here he is as a mere 2 dimensional version of billy, probably seething with jealousy over his lack of volume.

I have of course been working on other miniatures as well. Here is the concept sketch for a Monk (D&D monk with razor sharp martial arts skills of course) I’m currently working on

I forgot ho hard it was to draw those often forgotten back muscles until I stated on this guy
This is actually a commissioned piece and nearing completion, here are some progress shots
Monk front on
The abs (among other details are a bit weird and ned some re-working
Monk side on
I guess staff fighting helps to define the old back muscles
Perhaps I should also mention I’ve started a business designing and sculpting unique custom miniatures for whoever might be interested (my marketing manager would certainly like me too mention this, If I had one.) it’s called HOMINID Custom Miniatures & Illustration (because early humans with painfully destructive stone tipped weapons tend to be awesome). I’m still working on a website but I can be contacted for commissions at email@example.com in the meantime.
If you were really hoping for some good old fashioned Dangerous boys Imagery filled with violent blunders then here is another little taste of what’s coming when I post the first instalment of the SNOMAR adventure.
This represents Flints remorse after reading the Lankmire times over breakfast only to discover that the man he had decapitated rashly the night before was, in fact one of the cities greatest loved philanthropists. Flint had been on a solo mission of self discovery when he came across a street urchin trying to escape this man. Flints flashbacks from his tortured youth as an orphan overcame him and he dispatched the man without warning. This man turned out to be a benevolent foster father to orphans from all over lankmire known for giving street kid a leg up and a chance at a better future. He was trying to rescue the urchin from the mean streets. Of course self control, restraint and prudence are not really strong Dangerous Boy attributes.
This also happened during the SNOMAR adventure
After excitedly purchasing a breastplate dripping with acid Garribaldi quickly found that most of his wardrobe wasn’t up to the task. All his clothes and his backpack melted and he was left with only his magic weapons, the magic cloak provided by his employers for the adventure and the spilled contents of his backpack. Ever the optimist Gari simply tore his cloak in half and fashioned a crude pair of undies and an even cruder backpack with the cloak halves and sallied forth (to the embarrissment of the rest of the DB’s of course)
Thats all for now,
