Recommended Posts

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.

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

      I need an excuse to get out of a painting rut, so challenge accepted!
       
       
      The Dragon: Ebonwrath (because the Bones 3 dragons are not yet in the online store)
       
      Let the randomness begin. The fates have selected:
       

       
      Primary color: Cloudy Grey (16)
      Secondary color: Lemon Yellow (5)
      Tertiary color: Orange Brown (4)
       
      Oh my. I'll have to think about this one. With those colors, I'll go all in with the three star challenge. Why not...

      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
       
      Baby needs a bath first.

      So, one of my personal mini projects atm is working on some of the NPCs my players in my homebrew campaign are encountering.  And one of my favorite groups in that world are the Hunts - a loose-bound organization of groups (each called a Hunt) of fighters/mercenaries/warriors, each with their own specialty, who dedicated themselves to maintaining the roads and paths of Fidel during the millenia-long anarchy of the Mortal Wars.

      Now, what makes the Hunts distinctive from any other mercenary bands? Well, they ride BADASS FLYING MOUNTS.
       
      Gryphons, for the most part, although one or two specialize in pegasi, and a few ride more esoteric things... 

      Four NPCs intimately intertwined with the group are members of the Red Hunt - a sort of catch-all for powerful, destructive mages. Faukner, her apprentices Formel and Tiercel, and her wife, Charr. 
       
      So, I've had the Stonehaven Half-Dragon Duelist for ages. It's one of my favorite dragonborn minis, and I decided it'd be perfect for the swashbuckling Charr... It's a great mini, neat and clean with tons of personality.
       
      To give you an idea of who Charr is...
       
       
      Anyways, I've decided to do a WIP of this set of minis, starting with Charr's two forms. This is the thread for her humanoid form, obviously - I'm painting up the Temple Dragon for her dragonness form, and I'll try to do a WIP for that, too.
       
      So!
       

       
      I started off nice and simple - hit the face with some red, and decided on a blue-and-white scheme for the cloths. I'm trying to bring out some of the swashbuckler in this mini, so I like the naval colors. That said, I could use ideas for the cravat.

      Ordinarily, I'd paint my dragonborn's hair simularly to her scales and try to ignore it, but gonna go with dark for these dreads. They're sweet as hell. Wish DSM would give us a KS for these.
       

      And there's the face, pretty much finished, TBH! I washed it with Games Workshop's purple wash, pretty heavily so it'd sit well in the mouth and scale cracks, and then highlighted just with pure red. This is a proof-of-concept for the temple dragon, as well as a mini on it's own, and I'm pretty happy with it! Used Palimimo Gold for the eyes - something else that'll carry over!

      This is Ebonwrath as painted for the Random Rainbow Dragon challenge as presented here;
      I rolled up;
      Primary Colour: Olive Green
      Secondary colour: Lemon Yellow
      Teriary Colour: Terran Khaki
      I went for the 3 star challenge.
      The colours reminded me of summer in the Australian bush around my parents farm and the Blue Mountains near where I now live, so I went with a base that tried to create that impression.
      Here he is;
       

       
      If you are interested the WIP thread is here;
      Please feel free to leave your comments, constructive critisims, ideas or questions here.
      I hope you enjoy looking at this model as I did painting it.
