Harlequins and ransomware

July 21, 2010 at 2:47 am 2 comments

So I’m finally slowly getting back into painting.  I’ve been working on the harlequin since it seems to be inspiring me at the moment and I go to post the pictures online and… virus on the computer preventing me from doing anything!  Joy!

After a couple hours battle with SpyDoctor or whatever (who infected my computer and then tried to get me to pay $49.99 to install the “cleaner” to remove it) I’m back to about 90%.  Removing the bugger is tricky since if I miss a single reg entry or autorun it reinstalls itself.  I know I’m still missing a piece because Google Chrome randomly stops downloading pages, but at least I’m mostly running again.

Here’s the harlequin.  The instructions were “do whatever you want, since they are all supposed to look different”.  Well, at first I was going to do some ultra colorful purple/yellow or something, but then I realized that I can’t paint black or white, so I decided to try both…

The black and white are done (although I might go over the black with another glaze to soften the highlights again), but the teal still needs to be finished.  There are a couple of gems on the guns and the boots that need to be done, as well as the large gem in the center of the chest.  Overall I’m pretty happy with it.  Still trying to figure out black and white though…

    Thanks. Just touch-up and details left to do. Unfortunately, touch-up is the part that I dislike the most 🙂

    The Genestealer is at the same point. It should only take another session to finish them both off.
