Hypothetically speaking, if one had black as a primary color, would one be able to choose a new shading tone?

 

is there a blacker than black paint?  my daughter was happy to have black for her primary. not sure i would agree.

To shade the secondary and tertiary colors. And possibly to add some depth to that much unrelenting black. I'm thinking of my go-to Nightshade Purple, which would work well as an all-around shader and enhancer.

 

Hypothetically speaking.

Yes, there's Vantablack, but good luck getting it. Might be able to get their Singularity Black. Stay far away from Stuart Semple's scam Black 2.0.

You may use whatever you'd like as a shading tone in the initial challenge and the 2 star. Glazing with white (or mixing with white) would be allowed in any of the set-ups. 

 

The only real goal is to have painted "a black dragon" with pure black as the visual color (shaded however you'd like). I'd probably just start mixing and doing delicate highlights. 

 

It is a difficult color for sure, but that's part of the randomness!

 

Oh dear. If my BF gets a black/white for his primary roll he's going to be in for a heck of a ride. This will be his 3rd figure ever. 

 

Also: our dragons arrived! I have some reading I need to do, then I think I'll jump in.

we have a full dozen with WIP threads on this competition. 

this is going to be cool. 

I already like the way my random dragon is turning out better than the 4-legged dracolisk I was painting before him.

I find it quite entertaining that a majority of participants are awaiting product(s) to move on to the next step.

      Hey all,
      First time posting.  I was wondering what minis you all use for ancient dragons.  I was looking at the Pathfinder deep ancient red dragon and it's never less than 500 on eBay.  So I figured I'd check out unpainted ones from reaper.  Which dragon do you think would work as an ancient red dragon in size?
      Thanks

      This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither. 
       
      I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

      So, I'm not gonna lie. At least half the reason I backed the Rising Sun kickstarter last year was simply to get my hands on this miniature. It was gorgeous, and I've been itching to paint up an Oriental lung dragon. Back in the heady days of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition, I got into RPGs, and the Monster Manual portrayed the Gold Dragons as the serpentine, Oriental dragon types, and I have always felt a strong level of appreciation for that aesthetic specifically for the gold dragon. I got the KS about two weeks ago, have already played it twice with friends, and having finished my massive T'Raukzul, I decided to go ahead and paint the monsters from the Rising Sun core game. I knocked it out in 2 days. Enjoy, and I'm happy to hear about where I could improve.

      I did the dragon for Dragons Don't Share as a metallic test for my Ma'al Drakar I just posted pics of. Overall I am happy with him, and am glad I covered the body Aged Pewter with Adamantium Black.

      This will be yet another Undead /Demon Army.
      ( what can I say? I love evil miniatures).
       
      This army has an Asian theme.
      Undead Samurai
      Oni
      Asian Dragons
      Some living Asian Allies.
      Kirin
       
      Hope you will enjoy  it.
       
      I will paint slowly and it may take a while, but I'm putting this out here to start.
      Since I backed Zentih's Kensei Undead KS I have a few of the Undead Samurai and Demons waiting
      I also have the Grenadier Wind Dragon ( alas without the two humans) and the Grenadier Imperial Dragon of the Eleven Celestial Dynasties
      And some Living Samurai.
      Also a nice Asian Graveyard Set.
       
      Some stuff that has to get painted soon..
