The problem at hand lay in a wealth of excess: too many dragons and too much paint. I have no idea where the extra Bones fire dragon came from; I'm assuming a Kickstarter, since I don't remember buying an extra. And every time I order something from the factory, one of the lovely people in Shipping throws in a bottle of pink paint.

It's not always the SAME pink... but I now have several bottles each of bubblegum pink, Breast Cancer Awareness Pink... this is not normally a bad thing, but I don't USE a lot of pink except in flowers, mouseling tails and ears, and occasionally clothing. Admittedly, I do a lot of mouselings, but still...

And then Berni hit it yesterday: "Why not do a Bubblegum Dragon?"

I didn't bother posting a picture of the dragon in question, because he's boring, and still not dry. But I will keep you informed. After I work the cricks out of my neck, that is...

It takes a tough man to paint a Pink Dragon. I wonder what kind of breath weapon a Pink Dragon would have; may be intense Double Bubble Breath.

I was thinking either two things....big pink bubbles OR a pinky sticky sludge

When the brown liner dried, I did a quick drybrush in white to bring out the detail, then washed it with Transparent Red. Watered it down a bit, and durned if it didn't wash out into a light red/darkish pink...

When the wash dries completely, I am pondering drybrushing with Bubblegum Pink, and highlighting with Breast Cancer Awareness Pink.

Interesting concept.

Gotta be Big League Chew or Bazooka  (since both those are pretty nasty b'gum) :lol:

 

I had to do a google to see what might came up & I came across this. May it bring you inspiration:

Hm. Glitter never occurred to me...

...and it's currently cementing to a base. It still NEEDS something... but I have to work in the morning, and Walking Dead is on soon... best not to force it.

Bubblegum dragons spew forth hot molasses.  It's considerably more horrifying the more you think about it:

Witch Hunters love the pink beasts because they have a sweet tooth (actually, a lot of big sharp ones).  On a good day with fair winds they can sniff out a gingerbread house at 15 leagues.  Of course, they end up going through absurd amounts of henna to maintain professional credibility.  That and the incredible number of chocolate coins...

Teased cotton balls dyed pink might be a means of modeling a cotton candy breath weapon.

 

Just saying.

 

It would be sticky. Also creatures would have to make repeated will saves to avoid stuffing their gobs with it once they were mired in it.

A Bubblegum Dragon spits gum on his enemy. 

 

This will harden in seconds and then said enemy is nothing more than another piece of gum.

Aquarium rocks for basing material? Bright colors. Goes with pink. Maybe red. Is there such a thing as red and grey -or- red and black aquarium rocks?

 

You could mix two colors, obviously, but I am sitting here wondering if they make split color rocks sort like Chessex Gemini dice (where each rock has flecks of two colors).

 

Thought of a breath weapon that would send both Sith Lords snd Barbarians packing:

 

 

Glitter Stream breath weapon... :devil:

 

 

Spoilers for evile...

      Learning from my previous forays into blending with wings, I decided to try for something more challenging.  In doing this, I learned that sometimes the parts of bigger minis don't fit together as well as one hopes, which in this case resulted in some  improvisation, especially around the foot/base socket and the wings.  But I am enjoying how he came out.  He was wondrously bumpy.  :-)

      I had finished the dragon in December last year, but I still had the base to work on. Finally finished this brand new looking clockwork dragon painted with metallic paints and my favorite blue, Nightmare Black this weekend.  I still have another, thinking of doing a rusty/tarnished version sometime.

      This one was painted up in a bit of a hurry for a D&D game. I'm pleased with the overall effect (especially the wing colouring), but I'd like to have taken a bit more time to make the scales pop. The wings were airbrushed to get the smooth blending; the rest was done with a hairy stick. Mostly Peacock Green, Brilliant Green and Viper Green, I think. With some yellow mixed in for highlights and a darker olive shade for the darker bits.
       
      The broken tower was made with a sheet of cork - i cut a load of blocks and made the edges a bit ragged, then did a lot of drybrushing and washing. The trailing vines came from a bag of lichen which got some brown wash to make it look slightly less pleasant.

      After 6 months of painting 4-10 hours a week on this monster, I am finally finished with Reaper Bones Ma'al Drakar 77580.

      Good evening folks,
       
      So here is one I just finished up, a really old school Partha Piece, don't recall her original name, but she's some kind of sorceress or Dragon Lady. Sculpted by Tom Meier, this one didn't have a year on the bottom, but I think this was probably sculpted originally 1977-1979 or so.  I did the base as just one flat blue color, that as I look at it, I'm regretting. I might go back and do a little something with it. I didn't want to do a natural, grass and dirt base, because I didn't want to hide any of the dragon, who is not too large.
