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

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.

      This is the first true dragon I've ever tackled. Hordes minis don't count
       
      I went with Deathsleet for his rearing pose and...
       

       
      01: Fire Red
      09: Heather Blue
      20: Pure White
       
      ...... It's a 4th of July dragon!
       
      No, no, bad Neb. Not painting a dragon covered in stars. Too weird. I can... wait... Eeeeeeheheheheheee...
       
      I'll see how these paints mix when I get them. Because even with a 3-star challenge I can blend through purple.
       

       
      And now the waiting begins...

      So I've finally joined. Ebonwrath was the first dragon I managed to grab from my pile of Bones. Now assembled and brown line primed.
       
      Here are the results, based on my modified list.

      15: Alien Goo, main
      3: HD Fireball Orange, secondary
      17: Solid Blue, accent

       
      So this is YOUR doing Pezler!
       
      Guess I'll try for the 3* challenge. It'll feel like my early days of painting when I owned a very limited palette.

      The next set out of Bones 3, various monsters!


       
       
      The Carrion Worm really grew on me!



      The Temple Dragon is really cool.  I hadn't even realized until I was inking it that the base was a statue of a robed woman:


       

      The Manticore, who I was specifically hoping for before they announced it during the campaign.  It's a classic monster I didn't have a mini of!


       
       
      Lastly, the Giant Cobra.  Kind of rushed this one along...he also appears to hide from the camera focus.
