This is fantastic and really set off my imagination when looking at my unpainted model. I absolutely love the wings and the contrasting scales.

 

Im thinking about painting my clear version of him as a shadow dragon but my regular one will follow a similar scheme to yours.

I think you were able to break things down well.  I like the variation of tone on the scales and the wing membrane.  Great work.

Beautiful dragon. I picture it as one of the heroic dragons from the Dragonlance chronicles.

You did give him a great deal of character. He looks like a dragon that has been through some things. Great paint job.

Fantastic job! The best copper dragon I've seen.

Very nice. I like the contrast of the pale wings, and how you did not go overboard with the verdigris and let the copper shine through.

Really fantastic - love what you have achieved here with the metallics

 

Can you say what specific craft paints you used? Is the skin of his wings a metallic as well?

The craft paints are "FolkArt Metallic". I got them in Walmart (Canada). 

I used copper (very red) and bronze (more orange). 

The washes were Vallejo game ink. 

 

Yes, the skin on the wings is also metallic. (Very diluted metallic paint on white primer)

      Here is my first completed mini. In all fairness to the poor barbarian, he has been a guinea pig. I used him to get my act together regarding a few techniques for other projects. Today I decided to bring him to to completion. All in all I'm just fine with how he turned out. Feels good to call something done.
      On another level, this little dude has sent me into a barbarian collecting frenzy. I have some cool figs waiting for paint now.

      This afternoon's experimenting. 

      I had originally intended to try and create a red-colored metallic by mixing or glazing, but had already laid a red basecoat and the technique I wanted to try started with a metallic basecoat, so I decided to just experiment with some other techniques I'd watched. I really admire some of the space marine/robot jobs folks do, but don't have any minis of that sort and thought some of what I'd seen would apply well to Ragnaros's really segmented-looking armor. I had a lot of fun with this guy, I might end up stripping him, or just buying a few more.

      While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not.  She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.>

      77265 - Drys, Dryad
      I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle.  The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : ) EDIT - front of dryad:  https://goo.gl/photos/1FRcQ5ZqZoqGt3dCA
       

       
      77313 - Krug, Hill Giant
      Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure. 
       

      77314 - Golan, Hill Giant
      This figure is very... uh, purple.  But I think it works well.  I might have to go over it and tidy up some of the tree branch club - the paint coverage isn't as good as it could be.  But still a lovely bit of work.
       

       
      89013 - Ezren, Iconic Wizard
      She has this annoying tendancy to rattle off freehand that's better than my "paint by numbers" detail work, elf her eyes!  This one was a fairly fast paint, with not as much shading as she's done elsewhere.
       

       
      89014 - Seltyiel, Iconic Magus
      She refers to this one as her "Michael Jackson" figure, for obvious reasons : )

      This little fella came out alright I think. My first successful attempt at painting human eyes at this scale.

    • By MelmothWanders
      My third attempt at miniature painting. 
      I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, though it's more green than I had originally intended and I struggled to get the large metal surfaces to take more paint after the first coat.
