Ah, the second eye... At least there weren't 5 second eyes!  Looks great.  I envy your speed painting (fast for me is like 2 days).

"Fast" for me is, like, a week. ::P:

 

I agree that you did a great job with the eyes! Nice work!

:blush: Thanks guys! I don't think it would have been possible for me to paint it that quick if it hadn't been nearly all gray, with just touches of red here and there. The last time I tried to paint something quickly, it was a little kobold, and it took me 4 solid hours.  :upside: So I'm basically trying to teach myself how to crawl by doing quick monster paints where I just put some sort of color on and call it good. It's helping to remind me that not everything needs to be picture-perfect and ready to enter into a contest, lol.

 

That's not to say that I wasn't internally freaking out about how messy it was, and how sloppy I was with my brushwork. But it was fun, darn it, and I need more simple fun paints to remind me that painting can be fun and quick and messy, and that's okay.  ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I can certainly see the resemblance there; nice work!

      Some Stone Golems (SKU 77171) to challenge my players with in some future game session.

      I had fun painting these Bones mushroom men (SKU 77345) to a tabletop standard.  Their faces are so derpy and cool!

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      The Celestial Stag from Reaper Miniatures (03907). I painted this for a character in a DnD game that has a habit of shifting into a stag. I'm quite happy with the base.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
