Fembruary 2022 – Ugly on the inside

Every year Alex from Leadballoony runs the Fembruary challenge but this year he’s taking a bit of a break. However he still encouraged everyone to get involved and hopefully, one day, we won’t even need to make it a “thing”, it’ll just be! 

For the four years that Fembruary has been aroundI’ve done a little diorama and for the last three years they’ve been based on my three daughters. This year however I wanted to break that trend and go with something very different. 

First of all let’s talk scale. In more recent times I’ve been enjoying larger scale models. I haven’t painted a great deal but the Ork Warboss called BludKleeva was one that I thoroughly enjoyed. 

Anyway onto my Fembruary offering for 2022.

I’m calling the piece “Ugly on the inside”

She was a lot of fun to paint and it marked the first time I’ve used a proper wet palette. It’s changed my life!

  1. Love it! ❤
    I was really excited to check out these images over here on your blog since they already looked fantastic when I saw them on Instagram but I can see so many more details when I have it pulled up on my laptop instead of my little phone. Excellent work, and I love the color choices you made.

  2. Now that is a creepy looking bust! Really nice job painting her up and I’m curious where she will be displayed. Surely front and center in your house for everyone to see 😀 On a more serious note, I’m really glad that you tried out a wet palette. I find they’re extremely helpful for painting at a high standard and I don’t think there’s any going back once you’ve tried one 🙂

  3. Really creepy, I love the contrast between the face and the mask and needless to say both faces are terrific. A cracking addition to the proud history of IRO Fembruary submissions.

    1. Thank you sir. Well 1 it keeps everything wet and fresh for a lot longer and 2 it’s easier to blend/mix etc. Have you got one? A homemade one is easy enough to do but I fancied a tidy little packaged one. I love it. It’s changed my life haha

      1. No, I have plastic palettes that I refresh with thinner. Glad it’s helped you – and I don’t seem to have a problem with my paints drying up as I just add thinner or redrop the paints in another palette well.
