Nord's Painting Videos

Just another day in the studio. Actually, it's just another hour painting elves, compressed into a 30 second clip. It would be nice if I could blast through the painting like that.

I am thinking of launching a painting channel. I am at the early planning and testing stage, seeing what is possible with a phone, an ipad and very little processing power. It will be a while before I have anything of substance to show, hence the timelapse taster. If things pan out, I will be making a start in spring. Exciting times.

New Year, New Stuff

Another Yule season gone by, another new year started. I deliberately tried to resist hobby items this year - I have far too many already and tend to buy things as and when I see them available on ebay or kickstarter projects. One minor concession was these replica viking bone dice, for which my wife made a lovely little draw string leather pouch.

And that was it, which suits me at the moment as I seem to have entered a hobby hibernation. My motivation to paint little plastic (or metal) figures has left me, for the time being at least. I am enjoying painting elves for a commission, and dabbling with a watercolour set I received as a Xmas present three years ago.

So the blog will be starting the new year/ new decade with a whimper rather than a bang. It is just a hobby after all, there are no targets or deadlines to meet. When the passion dies, it's best to leave it be for a while, let the flames smoulder for a while, they will re-ignite again when the time is right. In the meantime, here's a little sketch entitled "Tower of Amon Sul".
