Bones 3 Froghemoth

I vote for the Erol Otus style eyes - mostly because I love his stuff, and that illustration of the froghemoth in particular.

The piece is coming together nicely.  Makes me want to play through the old Barrier Peaks module . . .

Including what looks like it could be a bunch of eggs.

That's what I was going for :poke:, I'm glad they came across. The eggs were a bit of a silliness for my own narrative; the base wasn't going to be used so I did it  for kicks. in the end, Reaper surprised me and added it on.

That's very cool, I'm happy I got it right. It adds a whole other dimension to potential encounters. Are they aggressive ambush predators, or just angry moms protecting their young?

I got a little more done. I painted the claws, then coated the base and the non-green parts on the body. I typically gloss coat then dry coat, but since this is a swampy monster I left some areas on the base glossy, like the eggs and some crevasses. I also left the mouth and some bones shiny, but I doubt I'll leave them like that. I expect to dull coat the bones, but the tongue looks pretty good like that. Next I assembled everything. I only have the green left (and the eyes), but since it's such a major part of the model it might take a while.

I left this one sit for a while. Even though I only had the green section left, it's a big section and I have to admit I felt a little intimidated looking at it. After assembling the mini, the size is a little more apparent. Finally though, I started back up. I drybrushed layers of Highland Moss, gradually mixing in Splintered Bone and a tiny bit of Clear Yellow. Then I moved on to the bone spurs, layering Red Liner, Fire Red, Saffron Sunset and Clear Yellow. I didn't paint all the spurs, I thought it would overwhelm the green, and I figured they grew under the skin until they broke the surface, so many smaller ones would still be green, and some of the bases would still be green. When I finished the fire red layer, I really liked the look. I think all red spikes with a green body would be a great combo for a froghemoth. In any case, this is pretty much done. I just need brush on gloss/dull coat sealer. I'm still torn over the mouth, but I'm leaning towards leaving it shiny from the gloss coat.

 

Here are some pics. The first is a little blurry, but it has a human sized bones mini for scale.

This next pic is my favorite, the front view from a players perspective.

Some side views. This is a wonderful sculpt, lots of detail.

Finally a (mostly) top view.

Very nice.  The colors you used on him make me think of the Black Beast of Arrgh from Monty and the Holy Grail when I look at him.  And that kooky grin of his in the second pic slays me.
