Bones WereBear

Recommended Posts

I've tried to take the advice from my previous posts and apply them to this one.  As always C&C welcome.


Rather liked how this one turned out in the end for the most part.  I realize bears don't have human eyes but I thought since this was a "were" then it should still have more human eyes.  However I used Linen White, but against the dark fur it seems too bright.

Thanks! There was a couple of areas where I can see I got a little sloppy picking out some highlights but overall am pretty happy with him.  it's funny, before I started the details (necklace and other small fiddlybits) I was pretty disappointed in how he turned out.  slept on it a day or two, then looked at him again and was suddenly satisfied.  he ended up being a lot of fun.

Looks good!  I love the Werebear!


He appears a little shiny, which maybe just from your camera and he may not look like that in person.  What I do when painting fur is to paint the base coat then add color and depth with several washes which can make the figure look shiny.  To combat this is once the washes dry I do 2-3 layers of dry brushing.  I'm normally not a big proponent of dry brushing but with fur it helps give some nice transitions and the chalkiness that occurs from dry brushing actually gives the fur a natural look and reduces the shine.

I haven't sealed him yet and there were a good number of washes.  Just noticed the shinyness myself honestly.  I don't see it on the model itself.


What colors (generic such as browns or blacks) do you or would you dry brush?  I'd like to see some more shading as it looks nothing like the grizzly pictures I was aiming for.

I think he looks fine.  Fur is never a uniform shade anyways.  I think if you put a mat sealer/varnish on him to take the shinyness away he will be just fine.  I think you did a good job just the way it is.

      I painted this guy a while ago, and as soon as it was previewed in the Kickstarter, I was reminded of Slade from the old Teen Titans cartoon. His design worked really well as a basis for the paint scheme here.
      The pictures were taken on the painting table, as I never really got around to taking some in the photo booth, unfortunately.

      Here is another semi WIP thread for another Bones 3 model. My youngest son had painted him in a nice coat of ultramarine blue and had left him. I then have the fun task of finishing it  off to some reasonable level. 
      So so after a couple of coats green and some dry brushing I got to this stage. 

      I am actually really happy how this turned out. I am not sure I would have attempted the blue under the green, but it seems to work well. Anyway onto the base, didn't realise how much detail it had.  
      As always comments welcome.

      I guess it's time to show this one...

      Thanks for the feedback,
      P.S. The pattern is inspired by the natural coloration of the coral snake.

      I finished this up right at Christmas to give to a friend as a gift. This is the first dragon I've ever painted (though I have been painting historical stuff for many, many years). It was certainly a learning experience, painting a dragon is not like painting a WW2 tank, and if I had been smart I would have done one for myself first as a test but time was of the essence and I was glad I finished it in time.
      I picked purple because its one of my friend's favorite colors, and was pleased to find there are actually purple dragons in fantasy, called Deep Dragons. I bought the Royal Purples triad from Reaper and used Imperial Purple as the main color and shaded and highlighted the scales with the Nightshade and Amethyst purples. The crest was painted with Coal Black from the holiday set before highlighting with the purples. The chest was a mix of Amethyst and Imperial purple. I added the blue gems on the chest late after seeing some other examples of Kyphrixis on these forums that had the gems painted.
      The wings in the photos are the third attempt at painting them, the first two versions I did not like. The first try was the base purple with a mottling of ivory. I was hoping to get a translucent look but it didn't work. Then I painted them Terran Khaki with the Ivory mottling to get a parchment look but that didn't look right either. I was going to repaint them in the base colors but wondered what they would like if I just covered the Khaki/Ivory with Army Painter Purple Tone. Two coats of the Purple Tone and I liked how it looked. I spray dullcoated him but the wings still have a bit a sheen from the Purple Tone.
      The rock base was painted charcoal then drybrushed with various greys and tans and the wood base is something I picked up at the craft store which was stained and varnished before the plastic base was glued on.
      I definitely learned a lot painting him and look forward to painting the rest of the dragons I got in Bones 3.

      Oh bother, this silly old bear has misplaced his honey! Fortunately, he can get plenty of golden treasure from the forest beehives using that handy axe. Not to mention swarms of XP!
