Thanks Graven'. Yeah, I was sorely tempted to do the windows 3D, but thought that I'd manage it with paint. Good to see I was right.
Just a layer of gunmetal as 2 sets of parallel lines and then broken (or dashed) black lines to shade them and make them more uniform in thickness.

Thanks T'Horde. Maybe I overestimated the Noisy Cricket's notoriety, I thought everyone and their dog would recognise it from the profile. *shrugs*
You could, and probably have, google'd it but see below for a film still for the cricket in context.

No worries Gits'. We've all done it. I frequently read a blog's progress and then pause and scroll up to see who it is that has actually done the work.
Thanks.

Noisy Cricket is now smoothed, primed and blacked.

I used a different shot from the film to guess the scale and then fit it to my hand.
Unless Will Smith has extremely large hands this should be close enough to the "real" thing, and I can hold it comfortably enough.
It's less than 4" long, and that's from the back of the "hammer" to the tip of that extended tip...
The grip doesn't reach back to my thumb and instead rests on the "base" (there's probably an official term for it) of my index finger.

Bard's tower now with finished smoke effects.

Just Bard himself to paint.

19 days to go. Feeling better about getting it all done now.

Noisy cricket always reminds me of the piercing/tag gun we used at Builders Square to price the rugs, almost identical shape. You’ve done a great job making it to match the photo.

Bard is looking desperate at the top of that tower. Maybe he should have played nicer with the locals .

Knowing how many movie props are made, it's likely that one of those things may have at least donated parts to the original. Thanks.

It's not the locals that are causing Bard's issues, it's an entity called Smaug.
Much like people living in glass houses, throwing stones, if you live in wooden buildings on a lake, try not to anger the nearby dragon.

Hello Brian. *waves*

Thanks Boss Salvage.

Progress on Bard.
Browns and skin.
Blues and reds to do...


That's all for now.

Bard is done. Just need to tidy up around the base. But you'll all see that later.


The Cricket has had one layer of paint, more to come.
The earring box is nearing completion and the earrings are made and painted (just need varnish).
And the final present is in the planning stage.
2 weeks to go (although I'm "loosing" next weekend to booze)
Should be fine to get them done in time.
