    Not pulled exactly but they are redesigning them to look less like the actors or something.

    I don't mess with wizards with that look in their eyes. Nice job! try including a base on your next one, they're fun too.
  4. Got a little bored so I spent the past couple hours painting up this awesome little basilisk. The short story goes; an armorer and a wizard were both ripped off by a local powerful Lord. By unusual circumstances they met and concocted a plan for revenge. The wizard acquired a chickens egg and hatched it under a toad and over a few years it matured into a basilisk large enough to cause some trouble. Given that the Lord of the land had some skilled guards in his keep, they wanted the basilisk to have a better fighting chance so the wizard asked the armorer to make some plate for the creature to help protect it from harm along with an enchanted golden helmet to induce ravenous hunger. They plan to release it with the help of the Lords servants into his castle and barricade the doors from the outside. (His servants are none to fond of the Lord either). The adventurers come in years later to answer a summons by the King about the abandoned keep and the possibility of restoring it to its former glory. So I decided to practice my NMM on the bones basilisk, problem is, I just can't seem to nail it right. I'm trying to get a bright new shiny armor look to it. I know I need to paint a more pronounced reflection of the golden helm on the upper back but I want to get the plate right first. The golden helm needs to look magical glowy too. Using the LTPK paints. What am I doing wrong? Not enough dark shadow reflections?

    I caved, claptrap, rick and morty, hawking, among other parody tributes and quite a few very decent looking aliens.

    Gorge

    Thats cool I like it. At first I thought of suggesting some weedy plants on the top but thinging for gaming, it would be better without them so you can place ambush troops. Made with foam?

    They'll soften up a bit when made to plastic.

    How to get this shade of pink

    I don't paint pink much but if you want a darker pink you just add a bit of red (to pink or white) don't you?

    Go with the gears and wires but don't be like me and over-do it.

    Market stand, questions for working w Balsa wood

    My experience is that after working it I sealed with typical mini sealer. Little loose slivers would lift from the wood near straight out and I would have to sand them down or cut them off. Some I couldn't really get to. I found that was because the sealer was too diluted, so I recommend you lay it on heavy or thick, don't thin it unless you can sand it after. My sealer seemed to darken the wood too. Maybe try a test peice and see how responds to your materials. I also recommend sealing it before painting it, the wood absorbs a lot of paint and it is very unpredictable how this occurs so some grain might become more pronounced than an area right beside it. Sealing it before painting should prevent that and let you get the colors on the wood just the way you want. The rougher the wood the worse the effect is. But if you're looking for a worn, used look, you might like that effect. Cut edges take the paint pretty well compared to the long face boards so keep that in mind.

    Working on freehand...

    Do you paint the freehand pattern in black then apply the color pattern? or freehand the black borders after the pattern is done?
