  1. Alrighty, she's done! Got "good" photos (still need to work on doing better there). Link to the WIP: I needed to do better on prep work. Her mold lines are pretty darn bad, along with some other metal flaws. And epoxying the wings damaged the skirt a bit and required touch-ups. Still, she was TONS of fun to paint. It will be nice going back to a semi-normal palette though that doesn't require a drop from every bottle. I'm glad I went with the brown and black outer-wear. Before gluing the wings it was a little funky, but putting those on pulled everything together I think. This figure will likely be a gift for a friend at some point. She was inspired by my LGBT+ friends who I adore and who are entirely rainbowful. She's here to bring them cheer. Aside from that, critique away! Happy to hear suggestions!
  2. I started this figure for my friends celebrating this month. I have had the figure for many years, and the one I have isn't the best cast, but she'll be beautiful. Plan is to have brown outer dress, darkish hair, and rainbow wings. Tried a new eyes technique; I mixed Schubert's method with the Bette Davis method. DKS's guide has the eyes after shading up the face, and the Bette Davis ones are at the start, then cover the edges. I used DKS at the start instead of the end, so I can still meet the eyeliner as I fill in the face.
  3. While waiting for water effects to dry (more boring than paint) I finished up a couple minis that have been on the desk for a while. His one here is a favorite. Got all rainbow inspired when painting up a great worm. This was the first mini where I'd used the sand/gravel and glue mix to "sculpt" a base. Had lots of rocks to stick into it as it dried. After a dark primer and light drybrush, I liked the look of it so much I didn't want to paint over it for a few months. Well I finally brought it back to the painting desk about a month ago and have been hitting the rocks with various leftover Browns and grays. I was not entirely happy with he underside until I thought to drybrush a fleshy color (suntan flesh) and it really did it for me. What do you think?
  4. As suggested by @Pezler the Polychromatic and @Xherman1964, and inspired by ultrasquid's design, I present to you all my rainbow landshark... $kittlez! Soon $kittlez will be sent out to hunt down a party of foolish adventurers in my 5e campaign, but before he does he wanted to stop by the forums to say hello! -E.E.
  5. A giant armored predator that swims under the ground. You'd think it would be drab and dusty, resembling the stones and earth from which it springs forth. Well, not this one. more large images: See the process of painting this in the WIP thread
  6. After seeing so many other lovely, albeit drab, takes on this model, I figured I'd do something to make mine stand out. Here, base-coated and a little crude shading under the dorsal plates: And a bit later, with the dorsal plates painted. There may be some tweaks after this, but that's pretty much it for the back. On to the flanks, legs, and face!
  7. 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.
