Lava Worm!!

Recommended Posts

Brilliantly executed! As soon as I saw the first image I thought of the crackle paint. The other I'm assuming is going to be a frost worm. :upside:

 

We need to get you $0.40 so you can buy a piece of gray scrapbooking paper as a background. The blue tile actually detracts from your amazing work.

The ONLY thing that sprang to mind when looking at this is that i would have tried to grade the colors in to a white center in the hopes of making it look hotter. :)

 

Hats off to ya...

Believe it or not that thing was layered up from white to orange before I added the crackle paint. I used Red Shade to accentuate the cracks and drybrushed the black and a little grey. You cant see it in a still photo but anywhere you see color is actually translucent showing the heat underneath the "cooled" spots

Yeaaah... I think I'm gonna do that tomorrow.

I think it would go well in addition to have the transition in the mouth. A "cooling on the outside but a belly full of fire!" look.

 

Thats constructive criticism only, though. It looks great as is.

I may have to put my Sand Worm off to try the Lava Worm again... I'll practice the technique on a few bases using different 'interior' colors to see how things react. I also think I'm gonna go with yellow ink this time instead of Red Shade and drybrush Bloody Red instead of black and use that for what I used the grey for this time.

No no, constructive criticism is MOST welcome! I wouldn't get any better if I got butt-hurt every time I was given good advice! ::D:

 

I didn't mean for the mouth area to come out so dark. A lot of that is shadow from how I photographed it. I'll take better pictures after I get my new photo set-up put together.

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.
