Sparrow paints some Frost Giants (Bones 3)

Recommended Posts

I'm painting all the giants that came with Bones 3 starting with the 4 frost giants. I'm going to start off by assembly lining the skin and then go back to the queen, who I already have liner-ed, and go from there. Pics under spoiler for size.

Is the Queen's staff bend?

 

And is the guy with the spear the King?

 

I will be getting that set.

I think it was bent, or at least the primed version appears to be straight.

The staff was bent pretty bad when I took the first pictures. I have since straightened them out. Yes, the guy with the spear is the king.

Nice!

 

I had this idea of making the Queen a Mammoth Herder.

No clue if I ever going to make it, I hope Bones IV has Mammoths or Whooly Rhinos...

 

Looking forward to see these painted!

Good luck!

That sounds really neat. And thanks, I only have a few weeks to get them done so I hope they come out as nicely as I'd like them to.

So when I initially cleaned the mold lines her leg only looked a little messed up. With paint on it it looks awful, any ideas on how to fix it?

I'm struggling with what color to make her hair. I don't want to do white or blue but I'm not sure what else would really look frost giant-y. I plan on going grey for the beards on the males but not sure if I want to do the same with her.

The suggestion of black hair looks good on her.  How about black?

      So I've taken a break from my Fallout coloring book but I am still coloring. I'm going to use this for my non-Fallout books.

      I've been working on her simce September or October and finally done. It's a shame I have to give her away.

      So I'm painting up the Mantic Giant. I'm calling him James, because the head I'm using is very much a James Hetfield head.
       
      Say hi, James.
       
      I started off by priming with a sample of Badger's Stynylrez that I got with last year's RCon swag bag and my Badger Patriot 105 airbrush. I'm pretty sure the primer is their olive green. I used the olive green because I couldn't find the sample bottle of the more off-white/yellow Stynylrez primer that I got from the swag bag two years ago. Then I found it after I finished priming and started trying to mix up a flesh tone. Go figure. I didn't take any pictures of the primed pieces, because all they were was olive green all over.
       
      When mixing up my skin tone, I wanted something tanned looking, but darker and more bronzed than Reaper's tanned skin. I wanted it to look more like how the skin of someone who works outside all summer long tends to look, with that almost leather look that they tend to get. After all, a giant like this guy isn't going to be spending a lot of time indoors, especially not if he's part of an army.
       
       
      So I started with Vallejo bronze fleshtone and leather brown in roughly equal parts. Which ended up too orange. So I upped the leather brown, and it was still too orange. So I added in Reaper Tanned Shadow, and I almost got it where I wanted. The final touch was some Reaper tanned skin, and I got it to be good enough. Don't ask me proportions, because after the first mix I have no idea. I just threw some color in, stuck it to the vortex mixer for a few seconds, and then looked again to see if I liked it. I finished it off by making it airbrush-ready with some Createx 4012 reducer.
       
      In this picture, it's the unlabeled bottle in the middle. The other bottles are the paints I mixed together to get it.
       
      Now, armed with my skintone, I decided that I wanted to try a different airbrush. So I broke out my Badger Renegade Krome for the very first time and started applying. The difference between the Krome and the Patriot is night and day because of one simple, but amazing, feature - an adjustable trigger stop. It's freaking sweet. No worries about over spraying massive amounts of paint accidentally, and you have so much more control over your lines because of it.
       
      And the skin is where I stopped for the night.

      My party always seems to have a menagerie of animals... here is one of them. Is it wrong to find a donkey cute?

      And here is a fire giant I finished recently. I was much happier with him, but the photos reveal some sloppiness! In hand, he's great for the table and I feel satisfied. I'm currently working on a third, so let's see how that goes!
