Dreadlord WIP, and a lack of power

Last post, then sleep. Sleep wasn't something I got much of last night, as I was trying to do some work on this guy; my next GD project:

But then not long after I got the base done to this level:

...The power went off, leaving my to do little odds and ends with a head-mounted lamp while I waited for the electrician to show up and find the cause of the problem. Leaving me with this:

...Then it turned out they couldn't fix it, meaning I had to get up early this morning to feed some cats I was minding for a friend, then head to the real estate to get it sorted by their electrician.

As for the rest, I have to do a a few tiny touchups (Not even visible in the photos) on some dark colours in the green, and a few bolder highlights, and…

Jester Finished

Lots of updates tonight, and this is the first:

The Jester is finished! My first GD entry of the year is done, and I've picked up already on a few things I did wrong in the process to correct for my next project. But here are some interim shots of him at the moment:
