I saw the Mr posted his project today so as I was off work I too "got to work" too. So I pushed this project ahead of schedule. If I kept pushing it back then Id procrastinate and it would neve

 

As usual, I had an idea. It was a shared idea for a personal project that I wanted to do. It embodied simultaneously the use of actual airbrushing, OSL on a bigger level that In comfortable with, more water effects with hopefully less drama and sculpting. 

 

So, I give you, the first steps to the Destroyer of Worlds. 0404171442.thumb.jpg.1eacb91617e5a3f310445ea85fb0c699.jpg0404171442a.thumb.jpg.cbfe653743d29c70e569181a780b6704.jpg

Theres a reason for the flourescent color, I promise. I still jad sunlight in the office so painting it was great. 

 

While that was drying I started on the base by applying a thick layer of water effects to cover the treasure.

Then I rotated back to the dragon, increasing the intensity of the reds.

Moar RED!!!

Close enough for now. For now.........ill admit I was an idiot and I went back over my base with black primer and highlighted in white. We'll see how it cures tomorrow. @_@

Now the painful part, my sculpting. Its not great but I do intend to go over it again tomorrow and peel back the middle part a little bit as I intend to do something more with thr chest. I am starting to see my idea unfold though.

I had some black primer left in my airbrush so I did a test on the scales to see if my idea will work.

Yeppp and it cut my work down by 40%. I'm still going to paint each scale individually but a portion of my goal is completed. Maybe Ill actually have this done before October. @_@ 

 

Maybe. I don't want to think about the wings just yet.

I seem to b e in the middle of this as well!

 

Lovely stuff!

 

Hope the water effect thing works out!

Was kind of hoping you'd stay with the bright colors theme.  The body looked nearly translucent in the 4th and 5th pics up there!

Its a combination of experiments. The translucent idea for layering colors is what will be used for next yeats dragon as I would like to do an ice one that this will work wonders for. (Yes, that would be my third nathavarr id paint up. I really love this sculpt).

Today was mostly a sculpting day as there isnt much I can paint until the foundation is done. So I bulked the chest up a bit more and pulled the plates back from his body. I also started on his jaw,

While I gave my brain a break I did start airbrushing where I think my OSL will go. The color is a bit too cold but gave me a good idea of where my shadows will fall.

The water effects did club as expected when jt cured, however I think that for a chemical error, this one turned out for the better. If I jntend to paint tbis as lava, its pretty close.

You rang?

 

Looking really interesting!! As the Balrog is one of the minis I'm thinking about working on soon, seeing how you're painting the lava effect is of interest...

Oh, the water effects is for lava.  Given the yellow color, that's a relief...

LOL! Yes, definitely Lava!

 

I took a break from sculpting today to do some painting. I started layering colors lightly on tge base to build up lava.

I sprayed orange then orange red then red and like a dope, didnt take pictures during the red phase so heres orange.

And yeah, that monstrosity in the back is my attempt at sculpting a jaw with teeth.

 I needed to make some depth with the lava so I took a dark red and started lining some rocks and edges. I'm still not entirely confident on this step but in hoping that once I go back over and blend, repair OSL and add bright whites and yellows where the lava is flowing the I'll feel better.

Painted in the rocks and added a little OSL to them. I wonder if I should pop the rocks more??
