No problem, he seemed like a good candidate for the theme of "reasonably priced dragons that make us feel good and have a classic dragon style" ::D:

 

Y'know, your colors look like they'll be pretty nifty. Not really a normal scheme, but you could get a decent storm dragon out of that combo!

I sensed that there was a dragon painting challenge....

 

I chose Stormwing because he was the first one I found in the storage bins.

So main colour = 8 = True Blue (I don't have True Blue so will be using 29815 Dragon Blue)

Second colour = 6 = Brilliant Green

Third colour = 17 = Marine Teal

 

I'm pretty sure I can make that work. 

I'm confused about the differences between the star challenges though. 

 

1 Star = Mix in any combination between your 3 rolled colours and black and white

 

2 star = You can only mix combinations of your 3 rolled colours

 

3 star = You can only use your 3 rolled colours plus black and white straight from the bottle, no mixing at all

 

Are those correct or am I misreading?

Clarifying that I don't have one of the colours so will be making a substitution from the chart

1 Star = You must do the shading with the rolled colors mixed with black and white. You can still use stuff like beige for teeth (and shade with mixes of black and white). The base color must still stay true to reading as X color, but is shaded with X+Black and X+White. 

 

2 Stars = You can use shading colors of your choice, not just mixes of black and white. However, you don't get any additional paint regions to work with (so your red dragon with pink and green can be shaded with purple, but you must find a way to make the red, pink, green, and shaders work for teeth, nails... whatever tiny bits there are). 

 

3 Stars = 3 rolled colors, black and white. That's it. You can mix paints, that's fine. But you are limited to those bottles. 

 

Does that help?

Yep, thank you! I'll be going for the 3 Star then!

 

I'm thinking the same thing :)  Now to choose a dragon!

 

er....I somehow missed that first part of "You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors."

This sounds like fun. I know where Kryphrixis is, so that is the one I will be doing.

The results of the online dice roller were:

13 earth brown

17 marine teal

6  brilliant green

I will be doing the 3 star but probably won't get started until this weekend at the earliest. I am still trying to paint something/anything for ReaperCon.

This is entirely as a for-fun, no pressure sort of thing (except that we get to giggle if you add to your shelf of shame). Have fun on it when the exchange figure is finished! ::D:

I'll begin when the figure arrives, along with finishing "Mel", and starting a fedora-wearing investigator for the hat shop. I go slow, but these will be a blast. It is a little worrisome thinking about the possibility of colors I might get! I'm going with a Deathsleet. Got Ebonwrath for the boyfriend.

Well, let's make it in one post:

1) Dragon = Krikey dragon from Bones 3

 

2) 3* Challenge

 

3) What I rolled:

a) 18 = Palomino Gold

b) 7 = Olive Green

c) 12 = Blush Pink

...could be better, could be worse. :P

      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.
