The challenge complete! I present Kai, the Strawberry Dragon!
Thank you all for the challenge and the feedback!
An experiment in color-blending and washes. Wanted to evoke a different kind of flame than we often think of.
"Giants and the Genii
Multiplex of wing and eye
Whose strong obedience broke the sky
When Solomon was King."
This is a truly fantastic sculpt and I love it. A cheerfully cruel expression, like a cat with a mouse.
Yes, that is a Goetic sigil. Photos taken in natural light during the Golden Hour, unmodified. Armor is AP Rough Iron, GW Gehenna's Gold, and DecoArt Rich Espresso, with touches of Nihilakh Oxide and Nuln Oil. Skin wash was a mixture of AP Red Tone and some midnight blue wash. Came out a lovely bruise color.
And a couple more shots for context and scale.
"What cause, O Man, would you have to trouble Me with your summons? Great must your need be, or you would not bring such calamities upon the world."
I could probably snazz those swords up a bit, but she's not too bad for tabletop quality!
@Echoside_ challenged me to do this!
I attached the colors that were rolled and a pic of the dragon lined. Sorry for the short post, but it serves purposes.
I, Echoside, will be undergoing this awesome challenge as my Dragon and paints have arrived from Denton.
I have chosen the victim of Kyphrixis, The Copper Dragon for this 3-star challenge. Will be using green and red liner to prime.
So after his bath, it was picture time!
I think he will end up being a Strawberry Dragon!
First off, I sorry for the Cut/Paste first post, but it was fitting.
Secondly, Kai (the moniker I've given to him) got himself primed up and ready for more layers while out at a miniature painting event at a local gaming store. Such a splendid way to start the challenge.
I bathed the base unit in Sepia Liner, as I don't believe the base was to be done strictly in the color scheme of the dragons. Kai himself was bathed in the Red liner, which is very purple if you ask my eyes. The wing membranes were done in the Green Liner. I'm hoping for some interesting undershading effects once the 3 primary colors start to roll on.
I've blocked out in my head what scales are going to be which shades and such, I'm just hoping I have the skills to bring whats in my head out on the dragon himself. But without further ado, picture time!
