So, I'm working on the Reapercon 2017 Sophie. I want to paint her to competition level, or at least to the best of my ability. I've already decided several things about her color scheme. Her dragon mate is going to be a gold dragon. This is to emphasize my primary choice for her wings and clothes, purple. Her skin is going to be utilizing the golden skin triad. The ground is going to be a red brick, going with the brick carved for it. So, here's this far. At this point, I'm blocking in primary colors for the base, since Sophie blocks several parts of the base once she's added. Advice as I go along would be appreciated. I'm going to try to update this with each step. Colors used: -09074 Palomino Gold to basecoat the dragon -09401 Dragon Red to basecoat the ground
Hey, @ub3r_n3rd, here's the figure that I managed to finish. The top clear coat makes it a bit shiny, but I've got it under harsh lights. With the very zoomed in picture I'm not exactly happy with the shading on the right hand side where it transitions from light to dark in the middle fold, but that was vexing me for a long time. It's the way I want it to look, but I'm not sure everybody's eye will interpret the shape that I wanted to illustrate. There's also a woodgrain painted on the bow, but it is very subtle and doesn't look to show up here. I guess that should have been something a bit more stark. Really feel that she's missing an arrow in her hand, since she seems to want to be nocking an arrow, but there's nothing there. Need to work on my eyes for the next figure, but that's a common refrain.

Okay Hopefully this is not a stupid question, but is there an age limit to attend ReaperCon? I have a 3 and 8 year old, and not sure how they would fare for 3-4 days:) I don't mind paying $50 each and getting their swag bags But I know other cons (AX,comicon, E3) have an age limit, so IF I can swing going, I just wanna know if I'll have to have someone watch the boys:)
