Great job!  You can tell you used this as a labor of love with the many layers of color painted on each scale individually.

Very nicely done.  One of these days mine will get painted too. I agree that he is one of the nicest dragon sculpts around.

Aah, the satisfaction of removing a piece from your 'semi-painted shelf of shame' (this is the worst shelf there is.. Oh the accusing, damning looks those "semi-finished"s give you.. Shudders) ..

 

... And the result is thus... You have reason to celebrate Sir!

Thank you for all the kind comments! (No critique so far...)

Nice.  I like the addition of the eggs in the back.

 

If you look carefully, there's a snake in there, coveting the eggs. You can just make out the eyes in the picture! :D

Great job, awesome work on those scales!

 

The scales were a major undertaking, with 4 layers on top of the base, and by far the most dearing task of it all. I focused by taking each part in turn, to keep focused (I never glue a model together before painting). But all that work also means it will be some time before I paint something scaled again... :P And I will likely try out two brush blending next time, as to see if I can improve on myself.

Really nicely done. I love the scale highlights and the wings.

 

The wings were the last thing I did. I was really in doubt as to what color I should pick for the interfemoral membrane, so it took some time and some googling for inspiration. Same goes for the belly armor - I thought about doing it in the same colors as the wing membranes, but in the end settles for what you see here, simply because I thought it looked good enough on the finished model. ;)

Heh, yeah, looking at it thinking "Oh, I will just pick this up and paint 200 scales more!" was quite a wall to overcome! :D And now I will go back to my semi-painted shelf, because things have hobbled up in the mean time, and I have promised myself to paint some of those before I start on some new Bones..

The scales and wings turned out amazing.  Looks like time well wasted. lol.  My copy must of come from latter in the mold cause he was a little butter face.  lol.  Still good enough for table top though.  My only wish about the model is that I wish it was bigger.

      After 6 months of painting 4-10 hours a week on this monster, I am finally finished with Reaper Bones Ma'al Drakar 77580.

      Good evening folks,
       
      So here is one I just finished up, a really old school Partha Piece, don't recall her original name, but she's some kind of sorceress or Dragon Lady. Sculpted by Tom Meier, this one didn't have a year on the bottom, but I think this was probably sculpted originally 1977-1979 or so.  I did the base as just one flat blue color, that as I look at it, I'm regretting. I might go back and do a little something with it. I didn't want to do a natural, grass and dirt base, because I didn't want to hide any of the dragon, who is not too large.

      I've lurked for about a year - finally got up the courage to post. I've returned to painting after a break of many years. This is a recent figure I'm proud of  (my photography skills however....) - hope you enjoy

      I painted this figure as a white 2 years ago,  it took about 6 weeks of painting individual scales. 
      When I was done I thought it would probably look just as good if I drybrushed it.   I got the second one from a mini exchange or goodwill box, Dry brushing the body this time took 3 days. 
      For the wings I was inspired by a bearded dragon. 
      The nest was added per MiniSpawns request.  It was a stretch goal freebie from Oathsworn's Sensible Shoes line. 
      I have 2 bronze hatchlings as well, on TMM like the mother and one NNM.

      Hi Guys,
       
      I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly.
       
      If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes.
      If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.
