Bones WereBear

7 posts in this topic

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.

      The scenery from The Bones 3: Mythos Expansion
       
         
       
      77525 Great Obelisk.
      I have tried to vary the tones on the greys used here, on the obelisk itself and not just the cephalopod on top. It really does not show up too well in the pictures.

      A statue that causes sanity loss. As above, I trued to vary the tones,mostly with different coloured glazes. And they do not really show up in the pictures here either.
       
       
       

      This does not seem to have a code nor a name (yet). It is also from the Bones 3 Mythos Expansion.
      I will call it the Cultists Altar.

      Work has kept me very busy (I'm a first year teacher), so I haven't had much time to paint. I did slap some paint on this guy though.

      Hello everyone,
       
      Over in the Bones 4 Kickstarter enthusiasm thread, there seemed to be quite a few people calling for a list of the new bones figures coming because of the kickstarter. I had a spreadsheet that I'd been using for the previous kickstarters and have tacked a Bones 4 sheet onto it. This is open for editing by anyone to edit and fix things I've missed.
       
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dFN0lQL096zQMq8KG5aXcgrA7-VEIEoU6W-ujck7kj4/edit#gid=142862380 (same as linked in my signature).
       
      Entries are group by set (core, expansions, add ons, etc) and sorted by display order on the Kickstarter images.
      Reference numbers are from the Kickstarter images -- for the most part, some are made up to make discussions easier.
      The colors of the "Reference #" and "Group" columns match the colors of the backgrounds of the Kickstarter update images or for late additions, the Pledge Manager.
       
      Specifically for the Bones 4 sheet several of the rows have red background colors. The red background "Name" entries are where I've not been able to determine the correct name from either update images or sneak preview videos. Red background "Existing Part #" entries are where I've not been able to determine if the figure is a new sculpt or what the existing figure's number is.
       
      One thing you'll notice is that there are counts in columns E-F of all sheets, and a date entry field in column G. These counts come from my Bones Kickstarter painted mini tracking spreadsheet. Column E is a full count of the figures you'd receive if you pledged for one of everything in the Kickstarter (except count of bases). Column F is a count of minis that are painted. G2 is a count of unpainted minis and H2 is a percentage of collection that is unpainted.
       
      Hopefully this is helpful to others out there.

      Turned out OK.  I have a tuff time doing Bright colors that don't turn out dirty.  I don't know if it's the wash (well I am pretty sure that the wash is a contributing factor) or what.  Any ideas as to wash bright colors without getting this effect?
      Had to post this one as it is another great example of Puff running for his life again.
      Also now that I look at this I think I am going to add a brown wash to the stones to tone them down a bit.  These aquarium stones are just to bright for me.

      Not sure what this one is called either but it was supper easy to paint.  I like doing armor...it's easy to get nice results.
