[Morihalda] Quest Accepted: The D20 Rainbow Dragon

11 posts in this topic

(Holy moly, I haven't done a WIP since Spring 2016)

 

HOLY MOLY, how have I never painted a dragon??

I went through my stuff - I have a BOX of unpainted dragons. Thanks, Bones III. We're fixing that right now!

 

Questgiver here:

I choose you, Three Star Stormwing! ^_^ 

 

My rolls from this morning (also here):

I actually got some really lovely rolls here. Even though one of them is pure black, which limits me to 4 colors instead of 5, the heather blue and cloudy grey look nice together.

 

Unfortunately for contrast, they sort of... blend? Together? Learned artists, what's the word?

If I were to take all the color out of the heather blue, it would look exactly like the cloud grey.

I did check to see if my eyes were learning - they are!

So here is my dragon. My 3 rolled colors on the right, and my liner and white on the left. He's pinned but I still need to do some quick green stuffing!

I thought the colors would go nicely for a stormy, cloudy type of dragon. And then I remembered his name. Stormwing.

 

So I decided to do something else! How about stone, like a granite? It would be fun to learn!

Of course, that means he's not Stormwing anymore. He's.....

Ahh, don't you love when real life takes your craft time...

 

The Great Stone Dragon has been washed, pinned, green stuffed, and primed with Blue Liner. I want to paint this on the hangouts, so hopefully I can find my webcam in one of these... boxes... somewhere....  :rock:

:lol: I laughed way, way too hard at this. :lol:

 

And huzzah for your eye learning to identify (hues? shades? what's even the right word here) of paints and not being fooled by the colors themselves! Because Heather blue is so close to your midtone, you'll probably have to lean heavily on your white highlights to get the contast you're looking for. But I know you can do it!!! :D

 

Huzzah!

      Hey all! This thread will be about my sculpting journey. I hope that by showing the time and effort it takes it pursue an art, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up. I plan on posting daily here - I might as well continue my daily art streak! (And goodness knows I've got plenty of time now....)
       
      Some days might have some cool stuff, but many will probably be like, "Oh man. I sculpted a lot of fur today. A. Lot."
      Anyways. Hopefully y'all will get some enjoyment out of it. Here's to day 1 (tomorrow)!
       
      Comments and praise are appreciated, but please give critiques too!

      2015 was a really big year of emotional recovery for me. It's taken several years, but I truly felt that change last year. So with that progress in mind, I decided I wanted more. I've dedicated 2016 to learning about my favorite thing in the whole wide world - ART!
      I've got a lot to learn and a lot of time to get back. I'm going to make it worth my while to make time for art. I'll be using this thread as a goal marker if you would like to learn with me.
       
      These are my 2016 Goals:
       
      PAINTING
      I would like to have a dragon and a snowglobe done this year. I want to have a ReaperCon entry as well. Progress will be posted on the normal part of the forums.
      - Mini Painting - Speedy Swashbucklin' Sea Scamps, Pokemon themed ReaperCon/Spring Exchange
      - Non Mini Painting - Drink Coasters,
       
      SCULPTING Sculpt something! Whether it's terrain or a Parading Penguin Present Party, I want to start! - Sculpting completed - Pokemon themed Spring Exchange, wolf lying down and campfire - Sculpting in progress - Learning to sculpt thread!   DRAWING I have a sketchbook that I'd like to fill up by the end of the year by drawing in it for a few minutes every day. I'd like to get better at drawing - I want to learn the fundamentals and develop my own unique blend of animated and realistic styles. I'll post my favorite drawings of the month here. The rest can be seen on my Facebook albums, which are set to public. You can add or follow me if you would like.    Longest consecutive streak: 245 Days (May 1-December 31) 316/365 = 86%!!
      Jan: 23/31 74%

      Apr: 9/30 30% - Ouch! I did a lot of lessons on those days, though. Lesson 2 completed! May: 31/31 100% - !!! Both challenges completed, and nearly finished Lesson 3.   Jun: 30/30 100% - !!! I did it again! A lot of fast sketches this month. Jul: 31/31 100% -   !!! 3 month streak! Cosplay and Overwatch sort of took over, though I did get some sculpting in!

      So way back, y'all probably remember that I got all excited about snow globes. Yeah. I haven't tested any of those materials. I started sealing my test pieces and kept seeing terrifying warnings everywhere. So the water part is on hold, but pleeease add to that post if you have any waterproof suggestions!
       
      Here's my sketch for it. I'm unsure about the fence. I'm hoping that running it next to the little guy in the front will lead you to the middle so they feel connected. I've been watching some art videos and they said that guiding your viewer's eye is important! I think I will -not- cross the bars on the fence. Then the fence will go in an easy direction to the middle of the globe without your eye stopping to figure out the X's. Save the detail for the "focal point," right? I've also got to figure out which side the slanted end of the fence should be.
       
      I'd also like to sculpt in little things on the side, like an empty mug of hot chocolate or a scarf, excitedly cast aside when the friends decided to make a snowman! Maybe add some teeny little pawprints in the snow....
       
      If I have time, I'd like to add in a surprise....
       

       
      Here they were as of last Friday! Over the weekend I cleaned and primed them. The snowman got some green stuff on his head because those mold lines were tough. I've started a basic ring of air dry clay on the base. It should be dry today and I can keep building it up.

       
      Next, the color scheme. I tried to color some ideas in a few weeks ago, but it's been difficult to not accidentally copy parts of the amazing one featured in the store. I end up adding too much yellow and green.... :S

      Say that 3 times fast!

      This will be a thread for my sculpting journey. Critiques and tips are GREATLY appreciated (I wouldn't mind a kind word every now and then too ).

      I'll get into more details later, but right now I'm looking to a nice Saturday night spent sculpting!
