  1. So, painting up Deathsleet as a young red dragon.
  2. I’ll be painting Deathsleet. My rolls are: Thats 16 (or possibly 91), 8, and 6. Cloudy Gray, True Blue, and Brilliant Green. Orders will be placed soon!
  3. Another of the fellows who didn't fit in a group, the Great Green Bastich and Wrecker of Ships, Vyraxxus the Senile (also known as Deathsleet when he's, you know, feeling less green):
  4. This is the fourth of the five dragons I've painted since February (which, by the way, are the first dragons I have painted since roughly 1985). Deathsleet is one of the bigger ones. I underpainted the entire dragon black. All of the color is from iridescent or interference paints which use the optical properties of microfilms of Titanium White on microscopic flakes of mica. The result is rather like the rainbow on an oil film or the inside of a nacreous seashell, thus I called this an "Abalone Dragon." (There was a wash of turquoise blue pigmented paint early in the process to smooth out some rough transitions. Apart from that, it's all optical effects. Oh, right, and I painted the rocks it's standing on normally.) It is extremely tricky to photograph this paint because the color effects change based on angle and lighting. I have a few shots of the same perspective with different lighting to show how it can change.
  5. So. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. First up is Deathsleet, which I am thinking of painting in iridescent colors over a black underpainting. I was inspired by this beautiful version of Reaper's gryphon. First, I primed the figure with Reaper's Brown Liner, which as has been discovered, makes a fantastic first layer on Bones figures (I am keeping the wings separate for ease of painting). Then I painted the figure black. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Ebonwrath, the Fire Dragon, the Shadow Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm. Stay tuned.
