Love the snow and eyes and you pulled off the black fur.

 

The one thing is you have blood on the snow but I don't see blood on its maw.

 

the camera angle doesn't show it but the fur under his chin is soaked in it.

Very well done. Usually blood doesn't work for me on a model but you pulled it off.

 

thanks! i thought i screwed it up at first but then i looked up crime scene photos from the midwest and it turns out I got the bloody snow near perfect.

an interesting note for y'all....

 

this casting did NOT include the missing ear. that wasn't a conversion that was how I got him. I thought it looked appropriate for what i was painting and went with it.

I think you really did nail the bloody snow appearance, and I can see the blood around the maw..I think it's just our favorite camera fu issue.

I like the way you've tied the miniature into it's environment (read, another vote for the frost - Consider this idea duly stolen)

 

And yes, blood on the teeth, blood on it's ruff, blood on the snow. . . . It would be easy for this much blood to look overdone and cartoonish, but you've managed to pull it off. How did you apply the blood to the snow?

I might put up a different angel so the base can be seen better as there is a bit of leftover someone right were the majority of the mess is.

How did you apply the blood to the snow?

I go through the whole basing process:

1) Glue Cujo to a cavalry base (the fact i had to say cavalry should give you an idea of his size btw).

2) Green-stuff around Cujo's broccoli base to even it out. Push some dead things, Mikey, dead things into the greenstuff (two skulls and a rib cage).

3) Use a mixture of Elmers Glue-All (generic PVA glue) and white deco sand to add texture to the green-stuff.

4) Paint the entire base with Astronomican Grey. Use a slightly watered down Scab Red on the rib cage and create the 'flow' out from it letting it soak into the sand texture. Attempt futilely to add some additional detail to the rib cage.

5) Apply way too much PVA to everything but the rib cage. Sadly the skulls are long lost at this point but it’s comforting knowing they are their anyway.

6) Stuff model into tray with EE snow basing material (which their own retail minion tried to warn me awayfrom btw). Unfortunately the result looks BLUE instead of white. Wtf??

7) Use watered down Blood Red over the top of the snow where the underblood is. The brightness is a little much but before I mess this up any further…

8) Google “bloody snow” and find that I did pretty good, I just need to darken it a bit where the mess is the thickest.

9) Use watered down white to wash the snow basing to make it look like snow. No, I am not joking.

10) Spray with satin polyurethane sealant, let dry for 24 hours, spray with generic matt acrylic sealant to take the shine off.

That looks great! I think I may have to steal the idea for an old mini that needs touching up.

 

Mm-hm.

 

But remember; Only a hack borrows other peoples ideas.

 

. . . Artists steal. Wholesale.

      A rotting stench catches you nose. You see a creature slowly moving in your direction waving a dagger. At first, it looks like a beggar wearing rags. He utters a low moan and you realize as it's coming out of the shadows that he's missing part of its scalp and has a gaping hole in its abdomen through which you see his ribs and his petrified organs. Turning to the cleric, you scream with horror. Zombie!

      It's the second time i paint this model, here's the link to 02043: Undead Rising, 02102: Plague Zombie & 02157: Undead Awakening I painted 10 years ago.

      The door opens to reveal a room filled with bones. There are large and small ribs and leg bones, bare and white, piled ankle deep, with a huge pile in the center. The large pile is topped by a cow’s skull, and you see numerous other skulls, shattered and broken, hidden among other bones. As you enter the room, the pile of bones stirs from its resting place. It rises from a crouch to reveal a fully constructed minotaur skeleton. Within its bovine flicker twin motes of malevolent light. Jeff Grubb – Wrath of the Minotaur.
       
      It’s the second time I paint this awesome 77559, Undying Minotaur, Dark Heaven Bones 50mm tall model sculpted by Bob Rodolfi. I painted this Bones version for the D&D Fast-Play Adventure Wrath of the Minotaur.

      As you explore the ossuary, you hear wailings coming from a dark corner behind a sarcophagus. You see what seems to be a lost child, squatting and shivering. Chills run down your spine, when you first apprehension turns out to be dreadfully wrong. This foul creature has mottled decaying flesh, its eyes burn of hatred as it looks at you with a grim smile... Not a Reaper Miniatures but I thought some of you might like that Old school Citadel miniatures FTD-12 Dwarf Children (girl), distributed in North America by RAFM back in 1981. I painted it with acrylics as a child-sized Ghoul for the purpose of a DnD game need.
