I have created a little diorama / terrain piece to go with my Lost World Project.
I used the base of Kaladrax Bones, now OOP to create some Aztec style ruins.
The smaller Aztec ruin pieces are from Greenstuffworld.
For the creatures in the murky river I used the Moray Eel of Reaper's 02948: Familiar Pack VII, sculpted a lungfish and some Trilobites myself ( almost invisible in the murky water as they should be.) and I sculpted a second eel.
And a Bones Centipede 77427: Dungeon Vermin - Centipede .
The Plantlife are the Plant Dragon and the Deathstar Lilies from Bones
77505: Dragon Plant and 77504: Death Star Lilies .
The Triceratops cadaver is a plastic Triceratops skeleton which I fleshed out with putty.
The little feathered raptors are Ral Partha Velocirapors and I used putty to give them feathers.
There is a juvenile Barchiosaurus in the back he's from a Paint and Play set from Wild Republic.
The Flying Creature is an OOP Metal Terradon from Games Workshop.
The Giant Centipede is from Safari Toob Animals which I repainted.
Thanks to @knarthex for providing me with flock, @strawhat for sending me the Toob Animals from which the Giant Centipede is now used, @TaleSpinner for his advice on sculpting feathers, I'm not superb good at it but I think it worked.
@SisterMaryNapalm and @malefactus for their ongoing support and tips.
I received this amazing mini from a friend as a birthday gift, so I was extra motivated to give it a lot of work. That's the Patrick Keith version, bigger than Chaz Elliot's one: a great wingspan, somber looking.
I've seen several paint jobs here to get some inspiration. Many people decided to go full with the spectral theme; blue lights, blue eyes. IMO, although it looked great, the overall impression wasn't enough that of an angel of the depths made with driftwood, but something newer and too colorful for what I was thinking.
So instead I went with a very dry palette: just black, brown, grey and rusty metals. I wanted to convey it as if its driftwood dried for days in the sun of some beach, just to be driven back to the seas, and to the beach again, on a neverending cycle. Worn wood, sundried, rotten, thorn; old wood, tired, greyish thanks to the salt and the wind.
I couldn't capture it on the photos but the only spark of color is on its eyes: a ghoulish green reminiscent of its spectral nature. Overall it actually looks pretty basic, simpler than these other works you can find on google, but... I'm happy with the outcome.
BTW lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla
