For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to the Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip .
For this Challenge, I will be painting up Ma'al Drakar in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0.
The rules are posted below:
I will be starting my Challenge at 1:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time on August 2nd 2017 (link here).
EDIT: If you want to skip all of the talky stuff, here's the link to my completion picture.
EDIT: And here's the link to the final entry pictures.
Let the insanity begin!!!
No, I'm not neutering a 5 headed dragon, I'm fixing the sloppiness that occurred on Ma'al Drakar due to the time crunch during my 7 day challenge.
First things first:
Those aren't spots I missed, those are spots that I just spent the last few hours scraping with an x-acto to remove the mold lines that I'd missed.
Yes, it was absolutely as heartbreaking to do as you think it was.
I thought someone might find some use in seeing how I'm going about reworking things in my attempt to bring this beastie to Reapercon.
So the destruction's done, next step, patching things up and continuing working on the mold lines I couldn't scrape off.
So just a little thing that I finished on Monday.
WIP thread is here if you missed it: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76415-guindyloo-vs-maal-drakar-in-7-days/&page=1
These are just some of the pictures that I took after I finished when I was half dead. If you want to see something specific, let me know and I can take some more.
Most likely, I will be working on this some more post challenge, so I wanted to get a show off up before I change too much....if that's a thing that I do.
Showing off my freshly painted goblin 7 day challenge Ma'al drakar. This challenge was not what I was expecting. I thought that attempting a miniature of this size in a short time span would stress me out, but apparently I'm weird because this has been the most relaxing week I've had in a while.
Polished and based, looks a lot better now
"Once upon a time there was a evil wizard, who through various nefarious means captured 5 dragons and fused them into one through a devious, powerful spell.
He called the resulting creature "Ma'aldrakar", however was unable to be controlled by him and broke loose not long after the joining. Each head retained its personality and individual mind, and this resulted in a creature constantly at war with itself.
Once free in the lands, away from the mage who had done this to them, the true horror of the situation became apparent. Before long, two heads rose to dominance over the others…. Rezatharnithaza the gold and Nazarangamar the black. Their wills were much stronger than the others, and they wrestle constantly for control of the body.
The other three heads bicker amongst themselves, with Sirathiamora the red being the most dominant of those three, bullying the other two but submissive to the gold and black. Bazarthian the white dragon stays out of fights, being rather neutral and calm, and often will actually defend the bullied copper dragon from Sirathimmora’s abuse.
The movements of this creature are erratic and jerky, for the black wants to destroy the world he hates so much, while the gold battles to keep the shared body away from civilization. The only time the creature moves in a unified manner is when in self defense or hunting food. "
Rezatharnithaza (Gold)– Living in an ancient, lush forest, she guards the surrounding towns and lends her aid to any heroes that require some wisdom and guidance. Her capture came through trickery, with hired mercenaries posing as people in need of aid and luring her to an ambush.
Nazarangamar (Black)– Dwelling in the deep, thick swamps of the south, he is ruthless and often harasses the nearby settlements, devouring their livestock. He has a large appetite for cattle especially. Any knights that would venture into his dimly lit home to find him would find themselves watched, and eventually driven mad as he used his magical skills to cast illusions and diversions, wearing their sanity away and taking delight in watching them lose their minds, lost forever. His capture was a mighty feat, only possible with great magics expended to subdue him.
Sirathiamora (Red) – In her mountainous home, she spends much of her time in a human disguise she carefully designed and established in the royal court of the nearby kingdom. She greatly enjoyed toying with human politics, egging on arguments and inciting fights among the court nobles. Her downfall came when she was discovered by the mage and lured into a trap while disguised, and captured.
Bazarthian (White) – In the frigid frozen north, this quiet and rather neutral white dragon lives with his mate, keeping to himself and leaving the humans and races that live nearby alone. As long as his preferred food of arctic cod and squid were around, he did not much care what the smaller races did. His home, carved into the jutting peak of a sea-side glacier, was unreachable by them anyways. Much enjoying swimming in the frozen waters that would kill in moments one of lesser tolerance, he was a challenge for the mage to acquire. In the end, it was the carcass of one of the smaller whale species, laced with a drug. As soon as the dragon devoured the free meal, he was asleep and captured.
Chronovaxian (Copper) – Preferring the hot desert, this cheerful dragon would often frolic in the cloudless sky, engaging in many chats with travelers and caravans that passed through his sandy home. His capture was the easiest of all, lured into a trap and taken by brute force. The joining had negatively affected him most of all, turning his joyful demeanor into one of despair.
