Lava Worm!!

39 posts in this topic

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.

      I had a really good time with this kit, and I feel like I learned a lot from it, too.  Win-win!
       

      This is probably my best paint job to date, and it was pretty cool to see those highlights and shades build up layer by layer.  Similar to the skeleton in the first kit, this one was quite fun to work on despite being a fairly simple model.
       

      If the wizard was the best paint job, this one was the most fun.  Sadly, something about the posture just confounded me when it came to trying to take good pictures of it.  Also, those lips
       

      I was a bit sloppy with this one, probably because I wanted to just finish with the kits and get on to doing my own minis again.  Nevertheless, it was a neat challenge to try doing so many layers of colors for this one, and if nothing else, that left eye is probably the best eye I've painted (right one's a bit of a mess ).
       
      On the whole, I'm very grateful for all of the people who suggested getting the LTP kits.  Definitely a great couple of learning tools.  Many thanks!

      Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.


      The group:


       
       
      The Oni:


       
       


       
       
      The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.


       

       
       
      Just some Human Monks:


       



      The Kenku/Tengu:


       

       
      This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:


       
      Flock!

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share pix of creations from the Conversion Classes in this thread. 
       
      I will **start:
       

      As a beginning exercise Gene Bobby and Jason had everyone pick a body, add one thing, and pass it to the right. That was repeated three times. These were the result. 
       
      **Be warned I have moar pix...

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.


       
      Vegepygmies:


       

       
       
       
      Plant Dragon:


       

      Death Lilies or something like that!
