As long as medals don't seem to matter and I'm going to get hassled on whatever I do, I'm putting up a project for which I put in very little effort. The paint job is lazy. The sculpting of the tentacles is just rolled up smushed greenstuff. I could've highlighted more and blended more smoothly. It is not a well done piece. I did this one to refresh my brain after painting Amitriel, because as much as that angel is beautiful, she's tragic. I needed something fun and silly. And my photos? Not great on the exposure, but eh, I'm not trying for beauty here.

It is not a masterpiece, but it IS a funny piece. Betcha a pretty penny that someone is going to see this and get a smile and a laugh out of it. So for the sake of cheerful giggles and a happy junk little project, here it is. It will win nothing and that wasn't the point. The point was fun.

So behold! A cyborg platypus fighting a sewer monster over a can of spilled SLURM! Just in time for the Futurama reboot.

The main figure is Steve the Cyborg Platypus by Hasslefree Miniatures on a base by.... micro art studios? Secret weapon? I don't recall. I added the tentacles. Paints are... vallejo, reaper, kimera, s75, and secret weapon pigments? And blood for the blood god, because blood splatter is fun and sloppy.

    Not every mini has to be super tryhard. So you are completly right to just doodle around from time to time. Trying myself too to become more loose and faster and concentrating more on color and light sketches.
    Also it’s hard enough anyway to stay motivated to paint (at least for me) so fun while painting should be the main priority.
    Really like your Amitriel. She turned out really beautiful but I also know how much such a project can kinda burn someone out.
    So keep having fun and thanks for showing :)

      Thanks for the support!
      Sometimes I want to try hard. Sometimes I want fun and relaxing. If I can do comedy in “refresh” mode I’m happy :)
