How do I show my dice roll then?

 

Oooh. I didn't even read that line. I just went and rolled dice haha.

 

I guess it's fine that I'll have to find a way to reroll, my first was a 20! A pure white dragon! I could have made Ruth. :wub: 

 

https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm Seems to be quick way to roll dice. Is... that link okay? It's to a specific part of the site with no links to the rest of it.

Can one of the three roll for me. I forget that we cannot put videos here. And I'm too lazy to link my youtube. :D

 

Dragon = Kryptixs (??) I don't have the other ones. 

3* challenge. <__<

Interesting challenge. I love randomness of this sort.

 

So for colour selection, can we use close approximates if we don't own said colour? For example, I don't own Palomino gold but do have Griffon Tan and Olive skin tones that are pretty close. Or Punk Rock Pink instead of Blush Pink.

 

It may be beside the point as I'll be mostly away from home for the next two months.

 

@Pezler the Polychromatic - thoughts on that? We did put in the alternative colors spreadsheet in case it is needed. Figure the dragons are not Ma'al price, so a FLGS trip for a bottle of paint isn't the end of the world.

I don't see why not.

A good question. Personally I would recommend rerolling, otherwise you're going to have a giant blob of one colour. Unless you want one of us to choose?:devil:

 

I agree. If you get doubles, feel free to reroll.

Whoops. Good point. When I'm off work I'll edit that. Screenshot (online roller) or photo of dice rolls works for me. Or honor code. I shouldn't be worrying about you good folk like I do college students ^_^

 

Liner is fine. Any extra color is fine - just make the rolls the dominant colors in order of 1st, 2nd, 3rd..... then whatever else.

And what about mixing the chosen colours and black/white?

Would that still count as a STAR 3???

 

Given the right colours one could mix a lot from those...

Those should be fine, the Olive Skin is near enough to Palomino Gold, if you can't get the former. And Breast Cancer Awareness Pink is a good substitute for for Blush Pink. The brighter the better!

 

And keep in mind that if you're not sure about rolling the results yourself, I am more than happy to roll some for you with *THUMP*, the Die of Incontrovertible Magnitude.

*squints at the Die of Incontrovertible Magnitude*

 

:huh: Uh, Pez? That's a count-down die, not a properly randomized one.

 

Here's my rolls!

EDIT: Because the print is so small, here's the numbers: 19, 11, 15. So Pure Black, Violet Red and Mint Green.

 

Ooo, my Kryphrixis is going to be pretty! I do wish I'd gotten something other than Pure Black for one of my rolls, though; since I'm going for the THREE STAR CHALLENGE that means I'll only have 4 colors to work with instead of 5. But that's okay, because:

Ooooh! I love these combos! 

 

Remember when I said I was going to wait until my ReaperCon entry was done to do this?

 

... I might just join the hangouts tomorrow and do this instead. :lol:

You roll it, it gives a random result. Good 'nuff.::P:

 

Can't wait to see what comes out of your results!

10, 19, 11 (although really, it was 10, 19, 19, so I rerolled the second 19).  So Imperial Purple, Pure Black, and Violet Red.  I don't have violet red, but do have one of the equivalents according to the chart.

Me neither! :bday:

 

Hrm...I coulda sworn I had Mint Green around somewhere, but all I've found is a sample paint that I named "Minty Green," which is more bluish than greenish, and there's no equivalent color on the chart, so I guess I'll have to order that (my FLGS doesn't stock Reaper paints). Violet Red is one of my go-to paints, though, so no worries there. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

      My thinking when painting this guy was that his scales would all be gemstones. When D&D dragons were conceived, I think it was a big mistake to have the good dragon be metals and the evil ones colors. The evil ones should have been named after gemstones: ruby, sapphire, emerald, onyx, and opal. So here is the ruby dragon, in his volcanic home. I hope you like it. 
       
      Thanks a ton to everyone in the WIP forum for advice and encouragement!

      This was another ina large collection of oldies that my high school friends gave me. Trying to make the scales look like garnets or rubies. Please critique!

      The time has come. The stars are right. The planets align. GenCon is nearly upon us. And so the great Iymrith rises upon the Mountain peak.
       

       

       
      As Eldritch Lingtning ignites the cloudy skies and strikes the very Mountain Peak around her!
       

       

       
      She prepares for her journey to the great Gladiator Pits in a distant place known only as Indy. Where bands of skilled and Mighty warriors shall fight for her amusement, in the faint hopes to win her favor. She hopes not to be dissappointed, yet again.

      Whew. This took me so very far out of my comfort zone! A real Trophy Style Base, LED Lighting Effects, Using Pine Bark Chips, Scraping off most of the Yellow Clear "Paint" I put on the Bolts, ect. BUT, she is done! And She Looks FREAKING AMAZING! Now to just put the finishing touches on the last couple prizes, and I'm done with this project!
       
      Anywho, Let me know what you think of her. Please tell me You like her and think I did a good job and that I did not just waste about a month on this for nothing.

      Pretty late in the mini to start a WIP but I could use some thoughts and suggestions, in particular in the area of contrast.  I am looking to bring up the contrast on the scales but I don't want to shift to an orange or pink.  The skin shows a decent contrast but to my eye it's more orange than red at this point.  I love the different shading going on for each scale type but I want more from the upper body scales without going into orange and yellow.
       
      My challenge to myself this year is to gel my reds to be red.  It's not an easy color to work with and a lot of these paints are either transparent or chalk when thinned.  It has been a long road to get this far but I want a richer color.
       
      Thoughts would be welcomed along with critique.  Pictures were snapped off my work bench but I will shoot for better ones this weekend.  In the meantime...
       
      the photos are raw and taken without flash to try and show the pieces in the most natural light
       
      The body.  Trying for three textures plus the crest.  The heavy armored back scales are under layered with corpreal shadow to make them stand out, then shaded from a dark purple red to blood red.  The body scales are undershaded with brick red and shaded up to a highlight of Phoenix red.  The body skin on the arms starts at Gore red and shaded up to a lantern yellow.  Problem is with the body.  I would like more highlight but whatever I try changes the tone to either orange or pink. 

      The head: still a work in progress.  Needing to clean up the horns and again highlight without going to the orange or pink

       
      Upper side of wing.  Looking pretty good although a set of missed mold lines is making me repaint the horns

       
      Wing underside.  Subdued and darker as this part is solidly cast in shadow and the horns are in the process of being repainted... again

       
      So thanks again for anyone who would like to help out.
