Yet another design by Duncan Shadow, the God That Never Was, the Atropal!
Probably my favorite critter that was added during the 3.X era (not counting Pathfinder since they've added everything from obscure local mythics to cryptids to memes over the years)

Another completed 3D print, again designed by Duncan Shadow.
This guy had a bit of a restoration. The printer knocked his head off overnight in a 20 hour print, so I attempted my first partial print and printed only from that point up and glued him together. The gap is more obvious on his back. I used model car filler, but I think my tube was a bit too old.
And one with Sir Forscale:
So, not a Reaper mini, but I got my hands on one of these. I wanted to try painting one up differently than I typically see, where they're largely blue, red, or brown, since the Monster Manual mentions no two beholders are alike. That said, sometime I'd like to get another one to paint up more "traditionally," despite likely never needing to have two beholders on the board at once.
Every now and then, it's fun to give something new a try. In this case, I had a spare Ingrid lying around since hubby didn't want to paint her, and this all started with me trying to show hubby how I do drybrushing... Or at least attempt drybrushing, since I'm not all that good at it. Thankfully, it helped him pick up the basics alongside what was written in the LTPK Core manual...
Then it turned into a downward, flaming spiral, but arguably, in this case, flaming is good. ^_^;;;; I wondered, is it possible to drybrush an ENTIRE mini... And even more so, can I do it with just FOUR paints, where two of them had technically already been chosen since I'd started on her cloak, AND none of them could technically be from the same colour group as another (so no reds if you have an orange or pink, etc)? And even more so, using JUST the #2 flat brush I had picked out before for the drybrushing?
Well, uhmn.... First and foremost, it was fun, and that was the point of it all for me. Just sit down, have fun, and see where things go. In short, I'm calling it a draw - I've picked up on a few more things as basics to work from, and I'm fairly proud of that cape, doubly so since it wasn't anywhere near as long to do as other techniques. Does it sell it as well as layering does? Nope, but I'm okay with that!
Anyways, onwards to the results of some experimentation to see just what my own limits could be with such a technique, and what kind of colours I can come up with using just 9417 Void Blue, 9432 Desert Sand, 9600 Heart Throb Pink, and 29833 Ash Grey.... For the record, the two I had started with on the cape were Heart Throb pink as well as Ash Grey, since the Ash Grey was used to initially demonstrate what I was doing for drybrushing, and then the Heart Throb Pink was chosen as something that would very much so stand out so he could watch every stroke of the brush... I wound up liking such, and so rolled forward to do the entire mini with drybrushing. Oh, right, I'm not counting the primering of the mini, which was done with Grey Liner.... ~_^
The story I'm going with is that it's a cursed gem that steadily corrupts and takes over one's body and soul, and that she's pretty much completely overtaken by it... Or something, as she's kind of a pink glowing eyed dusty grey skin coloured gnome now, with gear that hopefully looks fairly dated / well aged....
