Thanks, guys! I'm glad y'all are liking it!

This one got away from me a little bit but that's okay.

So I have just under 8 hours left and here's what I have left to do:

Mouths

Teeth

Horns

Claws

The entire base lol

And I still have to put yellow on the backs of the wings

 

RIP my back

I really like both the eyes and the scale texture you've done. I hope you finish in time, because it's important to you, but I've already gotten my money's worth from your pain.

 

If I had spent money.

 

Go, go, go!

Well done!  Wait, that hardly seems adequate.  EXCEPTIONALLY WELL DONE!  You have not only slain your beastie, not only done an absolutely AMAZING paintjob, but you have beaten everybody to slay all four!  You have transcended, and are now THE ULTIMATE GOBLIN.

 

Use your new powers wisely.  Or not,  Whatever strikes you.

 

So that all may see your legendary feat and love you and despair... here is your brand new, completely unique, super RARE fancy badge.

YAAAYYY!!!! :wub:::D::blues: There ain't enough emoticons to express what I feel looking at that dragon. I'm in awe at both the speed and the quality. You seriously rock. You'll have to excuse me for a bit while I hide and cry because I can't do that good.

As I said you would, you have created yet another amazing masterpiece. You did exactly what you were going for; when I squint my eyes a little, the wings look like the sun setting behind the Sierra Nevada. Congratulations on such gorgeous work, I'm proud of you (again).

Thank you so much everyone! I'm glad y'all like him!

As I'm sure you can imagine, I'm pretty exhausted. I was obviously working right up to the last few minutes and then it took me a while to get a setup together to take pictures for the official entry thread that hopefully won't make Doug ashamed of me. ::P: I'll probably put up a show off thread with a photo dump tomorrow. I would've liked a few more hours to not have to rush things at the end there, but I'm really proud of how everything came together. Thank you for the support and encouragement, it really did help me get through the blood, sweat and tears (literally all 3 of those things) that I poured into this thing.

It was really rough, but damn that badge looks good in my signature. :B):

I think the photos are really strong. They show the detail well, the colors are vibrant, focus is good, and there aren't any significant distractions.

 

Oh, and the dragon is cool too.

 

^_^

 

Spoiler

Really, really cool. I'm amazed at what you have created. And more amazed that you could do it under the handicaps of limited time and tools. I hope I get to see it at ReaperCon.

      I have been away from painting and these boards for a while.
       
      I recently got back into painting and started with some of the bones 3 ogres. I made a rookie mistake with bad lighting and decided they had to go in the Simple Green bath.
       
      The ones that I based coated with brown cleaned fairly well.The armored ogres had Vallejo Coal Black and the stuff will not come off after 36 hours.That is not even a primer, just black model paint.
       
      So has anyone had this problem? Do I need to step up the cleaning solution to acetone free nail polish remover? Brake fluid? Has anyone tried nail polish remover or brake fluid on the Bones? how does the plastic react?

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters:

      First, the actual Orcs!


       

       

       

       

       
      I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. 


      Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins!
       

       

       

       

       


      There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple.  I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.
