Up To My Armpits In Alligators

In order to leave you with uninterrupted Schlock while I do back-to-back conventions, Iâ€™ve needed to work a little further ahead than usual. Tayler Corporation Headquarters has been a busy, busy place for a while now.
But that doesnâ€™t mean I canâ€™t take an evening off and paint an alligator. Anybody who says that pink and green donâ€™t go well together hasnâ€™t been using the right shades of pink and green.

My paintjob isnâ€™t as detailed as the studioâ€™s, but my color choice kicks theirs right in their boring, olive-drab pants. And in truth, I canâ€™t take all the credit. Drew Olds, my painting mentor and the Artisan-In-Chief over at Garden Ninja Painting Studios peered over my shoulder and suggested the pink wash that led to the belly colors I ended up using. Yes, he made the miniature much more difficult to paint by pointing out things I could do that were harder than what I wanted to do. Thanks, Drew.
