I decided to join in on the fun. I selected Ebonwrath as my dragon. then rolled my colors.

Pure Black, Cloudy Grey, Pure White

 

Well interesting but not very colorful. I will go with it but having never painted anything a monotone grey-scale any suggestions or advice.

 

I'm going to need something to switch off with to prevent eye strain. So back to the boxes of bone to find another dragon. Kryphrixis is the first one I find so he'll be my second dragon. Roll for colors gets me.

Marine Teal, Clotted Red, Violet Red


That's better and should make for a good looking dragon. Don't have any of those paint colors Yay an excuse to place an order for more paint. While I wait for a few days for my order to arrive i can prepare both dragons and get started on Ebonwrath.

Both dragons will be painted as a 3*** challenge.

Ulfheathen for your monochromatic dragon Ebonwrath google some of the famous Film Noir images to see how subtle and magnificent these three non color colors can be executed. Also source Edward Gorey illustrations for ideas. Many of the techniques used by engravers and etchers can be uses on your dragon to enhance the DULL LOL lot of your colors. Dots, crosshatching, dashes even raised or pitted circles. Gradations or washes also can serve as a base to add detail on top of.  Such as starting at the tip of the wings especially if the end in talons or claws with pure bright white and then grating to the body to darkest black.

Rhonda Bender has a few of the investigator minis on Reaper store as monochromatic. They're lovely. I think if you search "noir" you'll find them. 

 

Welcome to the challenge! About to get you on the WIP list!

Well, as a Black Dragon, your Ebonwrath will be very... black. I look forward to seeing how you work with the limited color palette, but I think it'll turn out fine. Good idea if slightly crazy taking on the second dragon at the same time - at least you'll get a color break!

Dragons assembled and primed with liners.

Not sure what I'm going to do with the bases yet, maybe something will come to me as the dragons take shape. Paints for Kryphrixis should arrive soon possibly tomorrow. So on to base coating Ebonwrath.

Question - What did you use for a base for Ebonwrath? Mine likes to fall over, so I'm going to need a nice rectangle like that to build off of eventually..

      I had a lot of fun with this guy, even though I was initially a bit intimidated by the colors I rolled and am not thrilled with the scale pattern now that I've worked on him...
       
      Contest Thread
      Combined Show-Off thread
      WIP
       
      The colors rolled were 1) Orange Brown, 2) Cloudy Grey and 3) Imperial Purple and after a couple of base layers, he started to look too much like a pumpkin to not call him Pumpkin Spice..

       
      It will be noted that I did a completely terrible job on the flocking - only my second attempt at flocking ever and doing it with a headache and lots of kids running around meant that I didn't notice until it was way too late that he's got grass growing all over his feet now!   Also, pay no attention to the goldish mush-piles.. again, trying to mold with distractions didn't work out too well (not that I'm particularly adept at that either )
      PS's frontmost foot was badly bent even after a boil bath, so I made him stepping on a shield. The shield, sword and bones were donors from the Ghouly Grab Bag since I got a 77242 Skeleton Warrior in my October order. 



       
       
      oh, and I need a better photo-booth than white paper taped in front of my paint stand!

      I had these 3 just laying aroudn and decided to go ahead and finish them 

      Two are base coated, one is greenstuffed.

      Kyhprhixis: Going to be a white dragon, basecoated in blue and white
       
      Ebonwrath: Going to be a black dragon, basecoated in black
       
      Diabolus: Going to be a green dragon, i filled gaps and hacked off an arm and rotated it, becuase i disliked how its arm was positioned

      So, Ebonwrath is the first dragon I'll be painting. Lucky for me, I actually had good dice rolls. 

      Orange Brown, Lava Orange, and Violet Red. I had to order the paints. To practice with my colors mixing (and since I got a nice set) I'm going to be trying the 3*** star challenge.
       
      This challenge is now awaiting the arrival of my paints and dragon.
