90 consecutive days of painting was the eventual milestone I reached last Friday when I set out to see how long I could keep up a painting streak. I reached a point on Saturday where I had the choice of pushing onward or relaxing into a less regimented approach to my hobby work. The temptation to “chill” was too great and I decided to end the great ride.

Day 4? I know it’s weird but stay with me. I was thinking about this challenge and I may have jumped in a little premature without forming a reason to do it. I have the reason and a new goal but first, the mini of the day.
First week of this Paint Challenge down and I have four of my cowboys done. They even get some banner time with a new photo I shot. Tonight I meant to start up on another figure but I spent most of the evening fighting my 3D printer so I opted for something mindless and easy. I decided to give the rest of my Infinity figures a wash.
Pushing on into my Earp gang, we have the famous Doc Holiday. This rounds out the main four movie heroes and the last of the “mostly” black attired gentlemen. I’m looking forward to the more lively colored riff raft next.
So. Day 4 didn’t happen so this challenge was a bust but I’m going to soldier on anyway. Today I got through the last of the Earp brothers, the doomed Morgan. He was done in same style of his brothers.
Consecutive Days Painting:
~ 90 ~
With Wyatt Earp complete, I moved on to his older brother, Virgil last night. This was done in the same style as before and I’m working up a quick photo guide on how I’m doing this as well.
For day 4, I’ll just keep pushing through these Old West figures before I distract myself with something like Infinity.
I dedicated day 2 completely to the finishing of my first old west figure.
I was pretty excited getting Wyatt Earp finished up in this style. What I find interesting is it isn’t quite like the monochromatic style I did with my black and white Walking Dead.
I’ll dedicate some time to really define the differences later but I really felt blending the Inked style I was doing earlier with Here’s Negan and the original B/W Walking Dead came together in this Sepia style I’m going for. On to more western heroes tonight.
With a glut of new Infinity models and time to kill, I thought I’d start up another month-long Paint Challenge. I may not post everyday but I’ll catch up as often as possible.
