One more question...If I don't have the Reaper Paint, but a Scale 75 or Vallejo equivalent, it is ok to use?

Certainly, as long as you can match it as close as possible. The link below shows equivalents for Vallejo, though Scale75 hasn't been added to it yet.

Thx!!!

I have like 40% Reaper. 40% Scale 75, 15 % Vallejo and 5% Citadel/P3/Armycolours etc...

If you can add Scale 75 it would be great, else I will just compare the colours with my Scale 75 charts.

Just do your best to color match if it isn't on there. Or make a trip to the FLGS, if possible. We won't be too picky. Will we? Nah. Too much effort.

Thx, I have over 300 paints.

Many Scale 75 and Vallejo and lots of Reaper.

 

No FLGS here, only webstores.

This might be slightly relaxing, if eye-shattering...

I read the thing, thought about it for two seconds and then said to myself, I said, 'might as well give it a shot; three stars sounds like fun!' - and then I pulled Kyphryxis out of the BOX O' DRAGON!, pulled up Hero labs and threw some dice. And then I eyed my dice roller, because it's clearly out of its tiny, electronic mind. ORANGE as the primary. This oughta be good.

This might.. maybe.. be something akin to relaxing. I'm pretty sure I have those colours, even. ^^;

Going to dig those out, and clear a little space on the desk ... *glares at draconians* ...

remember you can shade with black and highlight with white!

his teeth could be a very light shade of green =P while his gums and be whitened to almost pink using the violet red.

you'er still using your colors, just using white and black only for shadows / highlights to lighten them a bit

I'm jealous of everyone's else's colour rolls, mine's disappointingly normal.

 

I think we need another clarification though. It wasn't my understanding that you couldn't use straight white for the teeth if so desired when doing the Star 3 variation.

i was meaning combine white with one of your other colors to get a tooth shade. So not straight white, but a lightened shade of one of the primary colors

      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.
