More of Mercy done

Here's a little more of Mercy painted:

I've finished the background, and am starting on her body:


I've also been making a few cakes; most of them are 12-14" square, apart from the obviously not ones!

It started with my BFF's eldest's wedding cake - I helped decorate that, then it just carried on:

Next up, was my daughter's Hen Do, which was a festival themed party in our garden. 

She had wanted a naked wedding cake, but her fiance didn't, so I made one for her hen do instead. 

Then I got carried away, and made a Pyramid Stage, Glastonbury Festival cake as well, with Beyonce on stage. I made 3 smaller gluten free and vegan cakes, as well:

Then I made a TARDIS birthday cake, because, let's face it, everyone needs at least one TARDIS in their lives!

It's very wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey! I forgot to add the supporting rods, and had to start all over again :(

Next was a Volkswagen camper-van cake:

And I followed that with a few much easier, flat square cakes; one for the NHS 70th birthday party, one pre-election in May this year, and one post-election:

This is the newly elected Leader and Deputy Leader of Trafford Council, holding my We #turnedtraffordred cake. The red is an outline of the borough where I live.

Mercy outline

This is a lovely image to paint; I started off with the outline:

Next up, I started painting the boulders:

I'll add a couple more progress shots over the next few days :)

How time flies! Mercy from Overwatch for Tofystedeth

I can't believe how long it is since I last posted! I've still been painting, albeit at a much slower pace than in the past, I've also got sucked into a few craft related things along the way.

It's time to post a few updates, so here goes!

This one is for Tofystedeth, and is Mercy, from Overwatch.

Here's the original source image:

And here's a close-up:

I started this in Cambodia, where I'd gone to visit my son, LewieP of Savygamer, but still haven't finished it :( 

I'm almost there, just the face to finish off, but I'll share it step by step.
