The Abyss has a terrible dental plan. :lol:

 

Well done on the figure, you were very true to the art! I've heard that GF9 figures are very finicky, what was it about this one that drove you crazy?

This was probably the best of all the gf9 models i have painted so far. All the parts fit very well and nothing much to trim. no complaints. 

It is the same for any model i work on for a long time, just loses its luster after staring at it for so long.

Thanks!

Pale lichen green base, washed with citadel green shade and highlighted with pale lichen/white for the scales.  The darker green was mostly pine green base and a leaf green /sun yellow mix for highlighting.

I dig yours for the bright fur and different shades of green! Seems we had the same idea for the monkey face. LOL

I think you did a great job managing a complicated color palette. Nicely done!

A GF9 model that fits together well!?!?!?!  I don't believe that is possible.  I've hated working on their D&D figs for clients - they always need tons of filler and the resin is soooo brittle that it'll crumble if you look at it for too long . . .

 

Beautifully piece though.  The faces are especially vividly done.  Great work.

Nice! What I thought was interesting is that we both did gold trim around the pillars. That was a tough decision for me. I liked the black n grays on yours too. I was thinking a blackish volcanic theme for the next one i do.

lol, yeah I've had necessary parts not fit properly at all whatsoever on some of their models (I'm looking at you Qesnef Ogre Mage) and others that were just a nightmare (cough * spider  queen * cough)

But this guy was a breeze, I was amazed at how everything just slipped into place. Not much for big gaps to fill, mostly just a little greenstuff for where the parts came together. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Your shadowing and highlighting really bring out the details, great job.

Yours is more gold, while I went with bronze, but similar for sure. :D 

Thanks! It's what the client wanted, and to stay away from the more red/gold fur.

      This is the start of my new adventuring party. So far, it consists of a human wizard, human or halfling monk, elf bard, half-elf ranger, and human druid. I'd like to do one figure for each of the core classes.

      It's been almost 10 years since I picked up a brush for the first time and to celebrate I repainted my very first sculpt/conversion.  My NMM are getting better, but cloth continues to be my kryptonite.  Also, I'm not sure how to get rid of the cross-eyed effect?  Maybe the pupil is too tall?

      After almost a year of work, I've finally completed this piece. 2 hours each on the adventurers, about an hour each on the terrain pieces, and close to 6 hours on the dragon itself. A lot of different colors used, so I'm not even going to try to mention them all. The terrain is mostly dry brushed, and washes. The dragon has no dry brushing at all though. Everything else is either layered or blended painting. Thanks for looking! Enjoy! (And yes, that is my YouTube channel in the background. LOL)

      I've mentioned here and there on here that I take part in an Aztec-themed D&D game.  The DM is an archaeologist who specializes in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, so the campaign has a really fun mixture of Aztec lore and standard D&D fare.
       
      My character is an Oath of the Ancients paladin, which we've flavored as an Aztec Jaguar Warrior who worships Xochipilli.
       
      Anyway, long story short, Aztec warriors often used a macuahuitl or maquahuitl in battle - a wooden baton edged with obsidian blades that acted a lot like a long sword.  Some accounts even said they could decapitate a horse.  When I found this cute jaguar hat (OK, OK, leopard, close enough...) on Amazon for a measly $4 shipped, I decided I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a cheap low-key cosplay for laughs.  Below are the work in progress pics of me hacking up and painting a dollar store foam saber with some cheap craft store acrylics to make a macuahuitl to go with my "jaguar pelt".
       

      Standard issue dollar store toy sword.
       

      Obsidian blades roughly marked out with a sharpie.
       

      Spaces between the blades cut away with a box cutter.
       

      I decided to go over the whole thing with a coat of white glue to fill in some of the pores and smooth some of the particularly rough areas where the foam got chewed up by the box cutter.  In a perfect world I'd have given myself more time to work on this and used a foam cutter, but I didn't have the luxury of the former and I don't own the latter.
       

      Mostly there on a base coat of light brown with the help of a certain five-year-old daughter.  It would end up taking about 3 coats.
       

      Obsidian blades done with gloss black. The handle still needs another coat or two, and I planned to wrap it in rough cotton yarn, but I couldn't find it.  It's around here somewhere...
       
      I should be able to finish it up tomorrow morning before our D&D session.
