Citrine tries to tackle Ma'aldrakar 77580

Recommended Posts

So this holiday break I decided to try starting, and maybe even finishing Ma'al (Reaper 77580), aka Tiamat.  I go back to work next Wednesday, so this is a bit ambitious, but at least I am going to use the biggest brushes I can get my hands on!

 

I got rid of mold lines and glued it together on the Saturday before Christmas.

 

This morning I got up the courage and got out the green stuff.  I had started applying base coat when hubby said I should document the progress.

 

So here are some progress pictures:

Today's progress after putting on base coat/liner using a large flat brush.  It's pretty sloppily applied I admit.  The Dragon is so big I am painting it at the living room table rather than at my normal paint station.

Got some more done this morning, put black on a bunch of cracks and spots I had missed previously.  Also painted some on all the eyes, but I had to stop in the middle of that when my hands started shaking to much.

Thanks guys for the howls of encouragement!

 

I got in two more small paint sessions today, finished the eyes and painted some more red scales.

Very nice.  I'm watching your progress, trying to psyche myself up enough to get back to working on the piece I started back at the end of the summer.

So far it had not been as bad as I feared, so just keep at it, eventually it will be done, and you will feel a lot of accomplishment!

 

An hour or so more this morning, painted more red on the red dragon head.  If anyone wondered, the reds so far are my favorite for painting deep red:  Reaper 9277 Splattered Crimson and 9663 Big Top Red.

Got in another 2 hour paint session this morning, but since I only painted Splattered Crimson on the body in the areas I had previously missed, I didn't take any pictures.

Painted some more red yesterday after work, and today after work I gave the green dragon head some love.  Reaper  Coal Black 9693 as the base coat, with some Reaper green with an unreadable label as the mid tone.

Painted some on the green head last Saturday, then work happened all week.  But I got on some painting time this weekend:
