That one took me a minute, Lol!  I was sitting here thinking, "No I didn't!"

Excellent work.  I really like the way the wings look.

Very nice blending of the purple and black.

 

my only criticism is the lighting...can you take a picture without harsh lighting?

There have been multiple times since I joined the forums where people have spelled it correctly in various threads......

I love the almost iridescent look you achieved with the wings, nicely done!

 

And don't worry, you didn't actually spell the dragon's name wrong. When someone posts using purple text, it means they're joking or being sarcastic. :)

 

EDIT: Oh, I forgot to mention that because you're photographing a black figure with a white background, it messes with the camera and causes the mini to look very dark and hides a lot of detail. A more neutral background, such as gray or beige, with more indirect lighting (no camera flash), would go a long way toward showing more of the detail on the dragon. Hope that helps! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Thanks!  Trying the Ruby Red and Adamantium Black together really came out well, I thought

I figured it out after a frantic look at both the box that I had finally put in the trash and at the store link :)  (although the tip regarding purple text might help me out next time!

I tried a couple more - one with my phone's flash and a few without - part of the issue could always be that I'm using a phone camera :D

Much better.  I light the transitions even more when more visible.

 

The mix of natural and artifical light can cause some issues.  Try using indirect natural light or take pictures as night with artifical light.

Very nicely done! I never thought to paint this one as a black dragon, but it worked out so well. I'm tempted to steal your idea.

      I had a bunch of new figures arrive the other day. I am trying to decide which set to paint up first. Any thoughts?
      Here are the new fishmen, a mind flayer, and an evil cleric of the sea:

      I'd like to paint up this guy to be a green and/or bronze dragon:

      A storm and a cloud giant:

      Two more dancing girls:

      A marid and a hippocampus chariot:

       
      So, which one first?

      For my latest group of models I wanted to paint some monsters- preferably with tentacles.  I thought this "roper" would be easy enough but I decided to spice it up a little on the base.  The 'shrooms are just little acorns The kids helped me collect last fall (painted the rounder ones as pumpkins).
       
      I really don't know if I put the tentacles in the right spots but I like how dynamic they make this model look.

      I set off on this guy thinking it would have a woodsy color scheme.  I'm not really sure how I evolved into the assassin-esque colors, but I like how it turned out.
       
      Comments and critiques welcome.

      So I got the box in August of 2015, and proceeded to paint the terrain portions of the box...
      (WiP here)
       
      Now it is finally time to start on the main piece of the box!
       




       
      Nathavarr the Dragon!
       
      I spent much time last night removing mold lines....
      Then scrubbing all the parts....
       
      Hey! I am using Bones Superglue on Bones!
      I glued his hind right leg, and tail to the body, and will be doing some putty work after my postings tonight...
       
      As a side note, the blocks of wood with the single nails are the ones I used when I was painting Takhisis, over a year ago now....
       
      I plan on using Blue Liner as my primer, and will be air brushing it on....
       
      So I hope you all will follow along, because most of the initial work will be done with my air brushes....
       
       
      PS I was talking with our Haminister of Trooth whilst taking pics, and we agree that if you could get 2 (or more!) of the same wings from this guy, they would likely make cool looking sails / masts for a fantasy ship!

      I haven't posted anything here in awhile, so I thought I would fix that.  I've had Aviriel since the first kickstarter, and finally decided to paint her as a gift for a friend.
       
      The shield was definitely my favorite part to paint, though I didn't get the blends quite as smooth as I would have liked on the gold there.
