03518: Dead Man's chest

Recommended Posts

 At first I thought the tentacles were supposed to be some kind of seaweed - they give it a very underwater feel.

Excellent paint job on all the details. What did you use for sand? I have some GF9 'fine' sand but find the grains too large for beach sand.

Thanks everyone!!! I wanted it to be very 'desert island-y'. And the 'sand' is just green-stuff that I used a toothbrush on. There's a sorta-WIP on my blog if you wanna see. Just put down greenstuff and hit it a million times with a toothbrush.  :rolleyes:

 

ETA:  :;,;: Tentacles...

I love it, although to me with the green tenticials, it gives me a 'jungle' feel and I feel like it needs more leaves and branches. Good job.

'Hit it a million timers with a toothbrush'

 

Is that a technical term? Also, is it exactly a million, or just a rough estimate? ::P:

 

How did you paint the sand?

Haha! I always work on the prettiest days, so I understand. 

 

EXACTLY A MILLION. Not one more, not one less.

 

I used blonde shadow, then washed it with gryphonne sepia, then drybrushed leather white. :)

I could have washed it a couple more times to imitate the dark 'wet' water.

I really did it because we were playing "Don't Starve Together', and I died and dropped all my stuff in the swamp to the tentacles there, and I kept dying because I would go back to grab my stuff and they would kill me again, and I would drop my stuff....

      This little guy is one of a set of three figures; I found him on the melt table at Reapercon and snagged him. I figured I could use him in Frostgrave, or as a familiar to some evil baddie in a RPG. Basic tabletop painting, I hope you like it.

      I painted Ingrid over during the paint binge weekend this past Thanksgiving. She was sitting in a drawer primed and base coated for at least a few months, so I pulled her out and finished her up. I need to get more practice doing gems; that's supposed to be a ruby in her hand, not a freshly removed heart. Although I suppose it could be....
       
      Please let me know what you think.

      Another figure I primed and base coated some time ago that I decided to finally finish painting during the Thanksgiving paint binge.I tried to go for a subtle camouflage effect on her cloak by wet blending several different greens on it. She's done for tabletop, like most of what I paint. Please let me know what you think.

      I started this guy last winter sometime so I figured it was time to finish him up. I used the Thanksgiving paint binge to accomplish this. I wanted to imply that he was made from slightly fresher parts, so I used several different flesh tones on him, then washed/drybrushed/weathered him to look a little grungy/rotten.
       
      Painted for tabletop; let me know what you think.

      This is a figure from (I believe) a C'thulu boardgame. A local book store/game store was having a mini painting event this past Halloween, and this is the figure. The first picture is what I accomplished in 2 hours at the store, while the last 2 are after spending another 30 minutes or so doing some touch ups at home.
      Speed paint table top figure, i hope you like it.
