Cyr goes on a quest! A random rainbow dragon awaits!

Recommended Posts

My dragon arrived! Deathsleet for me! The Ebonwrath is for my BF. 

 

I rolled a 15, 9, and 3. Ooooh boy. This is going to get funky. 

 

Mint green primary. 

Heather blue secondary. 

Lava orange miscellaneous. 

 

I am going for the base unstarred challenge because this roll is scary and the last dragon I did was like... my 3rd figure ever, over a decade ago unless you count the fairy familiar dragon. Including previous dragon in pictures. Must have been early because it is unlabeled on bottom for number (I labeled soon after beginning to track progress). 

 

So yeah. The mint and the blue aren't so bad. The orange?! Uh oh!! 

 

My dragon is going to need some work on the base to put the plastic in place better. Thinking of connecting the foot bases instead of two spots on the ground. 

 

I have the blue, will buy the orange and green on Saturday. 

 

Scheme? I got some time to ponder that!

are you bringing him on Saturday?  

Since I'm in for 3 stars, it is going to be weird to bring only 4-5 bottles of paint to paint day. 

I hope they have more than one bottle of mint.  Since I won't get there until noon, and need the same color. 

 

combining Lava-orange  and Mint green are what make the challenge fun. I am sure you will do great.

Yeah. I'll go to the G&M show in Golden on Friday, and CMPA on Saturday. Also bringing Mel to work on and my little princess mousling. I think sherbet dragon is going to get basing work and planning done on Saturday.

I had an idea.... 

 

Tropical reef for the theme. Mint green seems good for a base there, kinda in the tidal pool waters. Main watery area in the blues. Corals in the red. Maybe... maybe.

*ponders how to get wolf out of chair*

 

I am absolutely looking forward to you folks who got the more challenging colors.  I got kinda lucky with my rolls, although having Pure Black as a secondary color isn't going to be all cookies and cream.

Having it as a secondary color is a bit nice, since then you have a non-majority to shade with black. You could quite easily do black stripes with tiny spots of your 3rd color. 

 

We'll all have our own little color challenges and get to see how the group tackles it!

 

The only worry with the tropical reef theme is that I would want more colors for the "corals".

I was thinking perhaps coral like this:  7566499796_967ff5bf02_o-2-300x225.jpg 

 

If the mint green is all around, and then the wings and some other areas have a gradient into the blue, I can make this dendritic pattern with the orange for the corals.

First things first - getting the darn base figured out tomorrow with the Colorado pros! I'm not a fan of Deathsleet's two feet on the ground. There is a subtle bend on them that makes them a little unstable. I think I need to drill through and stick them together with a toothpick or a wire, then greenstuff between them. Not sure if I should pin the wings or just glue them either. I don't think pinning would be that bad - drill some holes, chop some wire, add glue, plop wings in? Shove a little green stuff in the nooks and crannies? These certainly fit together better than the metal Silver Dragon I have sitting around. 

I'd kinda like to be able to use this guy as a figure in my D&D campaign in the future (although I hadn't intended to throw dragons at them for a long LONG while - it is more undead focused). Campaign also isn't around a reef. It is in "Sirap" aka Paris + magic. Complete with the fancy wines.... which need rescuing from bad undead juju.

I believe many people have pinned Cinder and Deathsleet.

They're prone to tip over or lean forward.

A little paperclip could work.

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.
